This paper analyzes ways in which the media, particularly television coverage, has enhanced global terrorism. It argues that terrorists must have some kind publicity in order to gain attention, inspire fear and respect, and secure favorable understanding of their cause and that a tripartite relationship of the media, governments and terrorists is responsible for the growing global interest in terrorism. Analyzing selected literature on media role in promoting the argument about terrorism the paper shows ways how the broadcast and online media serve a dual role as propaganda machine for terrorists and an advocate for governments to enhance information sharing on terrorism and suppress the terrorist culture in different regions. It describes various terrorist groups, setting the context for understanding how the media has fostered the proliferation of terrorist cells. The last section offers long term suggestions to end terrorist activity around the world. The paper then proposes ways in which governments and communities can limit terrorist destruction of the global society, including having public cooperation and understanding, understanding of socio-economic and ethnic differences
