Self-Control Or Legislation

Events after violent incidents in United States of Amerika (USA) has always attracted my attention.
No even a video image...
Nor a picture...
And no even a reliable information about number of casualties.
 ...
Incredible silence...
...
We witnessed the same situation in September 11 attacks and also in the recent Boston marathon bombing...
No even a photo shot or a video image.
Existing images were ordinary...
Fully equipped polices and special operation teams.
 ...
In short, there is no permission for broadcasts which makes State look like incapable.
...
What about our situation?
...
Huge photos...
Frightening and dreadful headlines.
Images stressing out people and reporters reporting events vociferously as if they are in a middle of conflict. It falls short! They air to live broadcast shortly after the event and everyone and his brother begins to speculate.
 And open sessions are the kiss of death.
...
National interests...
State may suffer...
Institutions may corrode...
No one cares!
...
Pay attention please!..
So-called country of freedoms USA, which is said to be 'the cradle of democracy and human rights'...
 The other one is Turkey.
Isn't there any strangeness?
...
The fact of the matter is: After all, if the subject is interests of the motherland and nation, everyone has to think and act meticulously. It is not so difficult to figure out the possible damage of sugaring the pill and divulging the incidents happened in Sultanahmet to Turkish tourism. Or the damage of uncovering a terrorist attack with its ins and outs happened in any place of our country...
 ...
Especially in modern-day which is regarded as 'communication age' it is obvious that we have to be very careful. We are obliged to consider all kind of broadcasts whether they are helpful or harmful to the national interest. A very important role falls to national and local press (and of course as an individual to us). We always have to keep in mind that this country is ours, and we have to remember that every false step may cause a great loss in the future. We can do this by 'self-control' or legislations will come into play as in USA.
In my opinion, in need law shall come into play...
