So a faulty escalator made a bit of a bang noise and caused a mass stampede took over Disney land pairs, leaving some with 'minor injuries' due to crowd movement.

Can't even have some background industrial noise without people thinking there is a terrorist attack.

So, it seems the terrorists have won. Mass fear is spreading. Brilliant.

So how is the media to blame?

because you wouldn't know what went on down the road if the media didn't tell you, would ya?

I know what background noise I'd like to muffle.

"No they haven't won."

Evidently they have. People can't go to Disney land Paris of all places and not hear an escalator make a metallic clunk before casing wide spread panic, causing injuries and mass hysteria. People got put on lock down, evacuated through the back of shops and told to stay indoors.. because of an escalator.

People were shivering and crying, most people with their children trying to keep them happy and not worried. All due to an escalator.
//So, it seems the terrorists have won.//

Terrorists never win.

if there is terror then i begs to different. Seems people were terrified in this situation.

Hey even an ABer advised not to go to London in case you get stabbed. Now that is extreme fear mongering.
That's because they are wimps! There was nothing to suggest a terrorist attack they are over reacting - Jeez good job they don't live in Belfast they would be in pieces after a day!

An entire theme park and staff? Yeah just wimps the lot of em... Of course!
Question Author
Fact is, people thought it was a terrorist attack because of how much media attention has been around them lately. The media has warped the minds of the world to fear things like random noises at train stations.
If the terrorists have won they'd be no tourism!
Question Author
Is that terrorists aim, to stop tourism? I thought it was to spread fear for political agendas
//That's because they are wimps! There was nothing to suggest a terrorist attack//

What do you suggest people wait for until they decide a terrorist attack is happening? Someone to be blown up?

“Hang on, something untoward going on here. Better scarper!”
The Mirror was just reporting the response to an incident that took place.It's not spreading fear or would you rather we had 'fake news'?

"What do you suggest people wait for until they decide a terrorist attack is happening? Someone to be blown up? "

Maybe something suspicious, no the sound of an escalator.

Oh look, someone is running and screeming, i must too! TERRORISM!! RUNN! Oh it was an escalator making a metallic noise? Oh jhee what have i started.
An entire theme park did not run because of a bang from an escalator Spath, they were caught up in the domino effect, a couple people hear a bang and over react and panic, start running, a few more see it and then a few more see it etc etc
Question Author
"It's not spreading fear or would you rather we had 'fake news'?"

How could i be on about the mirrors article when the article is reporting on the event that happened?

What i mean is, all the media news recently about terrorism. Not this actual article.
Question Author
"they were caught up in the domino effect"

Caused by a bang in an escalator. Your answer contradicts itself lol.

"An entire theme park did not run because of a bang from an escalator "

Yes, they did. If the bang never happened, no one would be running.
How am I contradicting myself (lol)!
Question Author
saying they didn't run because of a bang, then saying they heard a bang, so ran... It was the bang that caused the hysteria, with the recent media reports as a catalyst for fear.
