Time to put Daesh cult back in their pens

THERE IS no doubt we need to be warned about the dangers presented by the followers of death cult Daesh.

That said, I have to ask the question, do we need to see it played out in national media organisations with so much prominence and drama.

I would think that is exactly what they are hoping for and all we are doing is playing into their hands.

I am not saying do not cover the atrocities and threats, but does it have to lead bulletins, be replayed time and again and be splashed across front pages.

Yes, the press must deliver news on a need to know priority, but we should take a stand against these zealots.

Let's cut off their free, world-wide publicity and just because someone posts a video threatening to blow up the world, let's not give it such huge prominence.

All it is doing is feeding their evil campaigns and promoting their warped and dangerous messages.

It is time for all media organisations to review how they are covering Daesh and develop a uniform way to present the facts.

These monsters cannot be allowed to be given free publicity anymorE - they need to be firmly put back in their pens.
