Tube train derails, CNN mentions terrorism.

Well done CNN. A tube train derailed in London today - nothing unusual about that. A couple of people hurt. The CNN report however, puts terrorism into the story almost immediately. Why? What possible reason could there be to mention terrorism in a story like this, other than to provoke fear?
CNN's take on it.
You know what? I burned my mouth on a pizza slice a couple of nights ago. I wonder if I should call CNN so they can publish a story about how Al Qaeda have infiltrated Papa John's pizza chain and are burning the nation's mouths with an insidious plot to deliver hot pizzas?

If you've still not watched the BBC documentary "The Power Of Nightmares", do it now.
