9. 'Terror expert'. Nice work if you can get it.

Kinda like talking to people's dead relatives. Tell your audience what will stoke their hopes/fears, and ignore all the times you were completely wrong:

Second Opinion


Being a terrorism expert means never having to say you're sorry. After the World Trade Center bombing, Steven Emerson of CNN's Special Assignment Unit filed an "exclusive report" (3/2/93) announcing that unnamed "law enforcement officials...suspect the bomber or bombers may be from one of the former Yugoslav republics." Three days later, after Mohammed Salameh was arrested in connection with the bombing, Emerson was writing for the Wall Street Journal op-ed page (3/5/93) as an expert on the radical Islamic fundamentalist threat. The disappearance of the Serbian menace was not explained.
