Flier for the Museum of Television & Radio's Television Documentary Festival on May 1, 2002. The opening seminar is titled "To Testify or to Sanitize: Portraying 9/11."
Approximately two billion people, almost one third of the world’s population, are estimated to have witnessed the events of 9/11 directly or via television, radio, and Internet broadcasts that day. By late morning on September 11, 2001, the attack on America had become the lead—and in some cases, the only—news story around the world. In the United States, coverage of the disaster continued to dominate the headlines for months.
