I dont want to get into the political debate behind this.

but surely all this press coverage is having a completely negative effect, if it wasnt in the press/news, no one would hear about it, so this wouldnt really filter out to the people its meant to offend! :xconfused

If it wasnt for the press, i wouldnt have heard about it, so whatever you want to think of the pastor i think the press are to blame for the hype, its like the age old question, if a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound :Hammer

Everyone is offended by something.
The press are to blame for hype and BS, which is why I avoid it.

Religion, of any kind, has always been mankinds biggest problem though. Muslim, catholic, judaism, etc.

You have to ask whether the press are to blame for the majority of problems in this world?
 
Yes it is good to understand the history and get up to date information....but look at terrorist campaigns...where would they be without the media?
 
Would half of the problems across the world happen if the media were to just ignore them?  That said....how would we know?

The problem there is that no one can prove it - because any attempt to monitor the tree\'s falling means you are listening/watching :Giggle
 
But back on topic - I kind of agree - if the media hadn\'t whipped this up it would have gone unnoticed.
 
Strange that this guy wants to set fire to the Korans - this is often seen as an act of \'cleansing\' - very clean these Americans, they like to set fire to things - and they seem to encourage this behaviour in the middle east with their flammable US flags.
 
Personally I couldn\'t give a chuff.

I\'ve heard of Pavlov\'s dogs, Jon. Not so familiar with Pavlov\'s cat theory :3Confused? Was it "don\'t leave small meringue-based desserts out whilst the cat\'s unsupervised?" :Giggle

So back on topic..

What is the reason for the press/news

To show extremist muslims we are not all nutters and respect their heritage/faith!

Or the reverse, encourage people to follow and join the pastor!

Or is it just news that sells papers etc??

Exactamundo, Got it in one Freddy.
 
News sells, or in turn ensures people tune in which is then marketed as viewing figures to perspective advertisers.
