Media Coverage of Terrorists

We are reading about the excesses of the networks and the hostages during the hostages' captivity in Beirut. Can we consider that perhaps it was the excesses that saved the lives of the remaining TWA hostages and got them returned in relatively few days?

Can we consider that if there had been excesses perhaps the seven still in Lebanon would have been back home long ago? Maybe nonviolent excesses are today's energy to be harnessed, not matter to be destroyed.
