Yes, I was always wondering which is more advantageous for citizens, to 
show suicidal bombers/shooters attacks that happen(ed) in France on 
public news channels, of not show them as they definitely were acts of 
violence. The second will keep French people delusional about safety and 
sources of danger in France. But may be advantageous for the government 
which can keep pursuing its policies without results of policies (such 
violent attacks) questioned by public.

After having said that I have a feeling that the discussion slipped into 
politics on this technical list... maybe we should bring things back to 
pure technical questions?
