Perhaps freedom of the press should come with some responsibility as well. Several French news organizations have pledged to stop publishing the names and images of attackers linked to the Islamic State group to prevent individuals from being inadvertently glorified. This seems like a good move. When terrorist attacks are covered more like natural disasters, with a focus on the victims rather than on the perpetrators motivations, it is less likely to inspire the next generation of attackers.
