TitleGeneral Election Changes Press Coverage of London Bridge Terrorist Attack
CreatorsAttwood, R.
Description

Responses by the UK press to the London Bridge terrorist attack appear, for the moment, to have adopted a new, intensified tone. Unlike the coverage of the Westminster Bridge attack and even that of last month’s bombing at Manchester Arena, analyses of the latest bout of terrorism from across the political spectrum feature an intensified condemnation of the state for its failure to protect the people. It is no coincidence that this shift in emphasis comes in the days before the General Election, but what consequence will it have at the polls?
