Demonization of Muslims confirmed in some western media

A “torrent” of negative stories, showing a “hostile and scare mongering attitude” has been revealed in a new study into the portrayal of Muslims and Islam in the British media. The research, commissioned by London mayor Ken Livingstone, found that 91 per cent of articles in national newspapers about Muslims were negative during just one week of news coverage. Livingstone slated the findings as a “damning indictment” of the media and urged editors and program makers to review the way they portray Muslims in their broadcasts and publications.
