Don't give this dissident group a publicity coup

Published 17/10/2013

I KNOW you are duty-bound to report the news, but did you really have to use such hyperbole when reporting the traffic chaos caused by the hoax bomb on Monday? You must know by now that terrorists thrive on publicity.

So when you use headlines like, 'Blood donations: alert for shortages', 'Hospitals: nurses work through chaos, 'Motorists: bumper-to-bumper gridlock', the dissidents must be thinking, "Right, lads. That worked. Let's do it again."

I can virtually guarantee more traffic jams next week.
