I really hate the media right now.
The gunman is playing them like a fiddle-thankfully the police showed some common sense and advised the press not to divulge any info that could garner him any more attention.
But it's too late now-those clowns with the cameras have already broadcasted those images of the flag, and instead of pulling that footage they repeat it over and over and over...This could be a call to arms and the media is helping produce the recruitment video.
I'm wondering if there is more to this...It is only one man after all, If I was to hazard a guess he might have a bomb and that might explain the caution, but I hope that is not the case and the cops have done a excellent job at keeping this under wraps, the gunman has been in contact with the media and I bet they are chomping at the bit to release what they know and IMO they would have if the cops didn't tell them to zip it.
But enough about them, it's time to spare a thought for the hostages. I'm sure they will be okay.

Are you talking about the dark background music in this video?

I'm torn between being so worried about the people in there and wanting to know whats going on, and despising the moronic media coverage.

As there is a lack of information regarding the events inside the cafe, i thought i'd share the following news:
Religious leaders and community members in Sydney are converging at Lakemba mosque where they are praying for the families and people affected by the horrible situation.
It's great to see the community join together in a time like this.
