Sections of the British media have a “serious problem” in the way they portray Islam and Muslims, a study has claimed.
Some 59% of reports published towards the end of last year associated Muslims with “negative behaviour”, research by the Centre for Media Monitoring (CfMM) suggested.
The project, run by the Muslim Council of Britain, said it analysed 10,931 published articles and broadcast reports between October to December 2018 by most major national titles and news television programmes.
More than a third of the articles that were checked “misrepresented or generalised” about Muslims, according to the report.
