Red News/Blue News: Press panic over ISIS?

In the above video, Brian Stelter assesses media coverage of ISIS and asks whether the press is provoking panic about the terror group's intentions and abilities.

Stelter also spoke with Ron Fournier of National Journal and Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation magazine.

In a column earlier this week, Fournier quoted one of his readers who remarked, A decade ago, we all hopped on the bus so the White House could take us to war. Now it seems like maybe we're driving the bus."

Stelter shared some overheated comments from news anchors and commentators and said he can't help but wonder whether some "are letting their fears get the best of them."

"Bottom line," he said, "we journalists cannot let fear-mongering get in the way of facts."

    What i don't understood is in reality how you're now not really much more well-appreciated than you may be now. You are so intelligent. You recognize therefore significantly on the subject of this topic, produced me in my view imagine it from numerous varied angles. Its like women and men are not fascinated except it is one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. At all times deal with it up!

    I disagree. ISIS is the Nazi Party of our time. They're actually even worse, as even the Nazis knew when to quit, while the insane, delusional Islamist extremists will continue until either they are dead or we are. You cannot reason with people who are completely convinced that their god wants you dead, and that they we richly rewarded if they kill you, your family and your neighbors and even more richly rewarded if they die in the attempt. We stood by for 10 years and let the Nazis kill millions of Jews, Christians, political dissidents, mentally ill and handicapped people and anyone else they considered "undesirable". How many will we allow ISIS to kill before we do something about it?

    Those who don't think there aren't Islamists – THOUSANDS of them – right here in the U.S., just waiting for the signal to begin their attacks, is delusional. It is, quite literally, us or them, folks.

    We must respond intelligently and not emotionally. General Wesley Clark has it right when he says ground troops in the middle east will only help the extremists and terrorists recruit. We cannot fight Syria, Iraq and ... Saudi Arabia's battles for them. We can support them from the sideline but we can no longer fight it for them.
    Also who is going to pay for all of this this time? The middle class again in the form of what's left of their benefits?

    "Most of what you read about is lies." – Bobby Darin

    We are told most Americans are ready to take up arms to support yet another Muslim crusade in the Levant, when most ppl I know want nothing to do with it. America is being set up once again to play the deadly empty game of monkey-in-the-middle and there's nothing we can do about it except to refuse to support the effort.

    and that's just me, hollering from the choir loft...
