UK Media Spreading Propaganda and Lies To The Public About Muslims

Start here

A recent article in The Guardian points out that the press has been publishing a “‘consistent stream’ of inaccurate stories about Muslims”. Here as an excerpt and an example of a problematic headline that was corrected after Miqdaad Versi wrote to the paper:

“British media organisations have been forced to make a string of corrections and retractions over recent months relating to coverage of Muslims following routine monitoring.

Miqdaad Versi, an assistant general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain, has undertaken a personal project to track articles about Islam and Muslims in order to spot misrepresentations and inaccuracies.
He has secured almost 20 corrections and retractions, and a further 20 complaints are being examined by the press regulator, Ipso.

Among the published corrections was a story published in the Sun last week, originally headlined: ‘SUPERMARKET TERROR: Gunman ‘screaming Allahu Akbar’ opens fire in Spanish supermarket while ‘carrying bag filled with petrol and gunpowder’.

After Versi complained, the headline was changed to ‘SUPERMARKET HORROR: Gunman opens fire in Spanish supermarket while ‘carrying bag filled with petrol and gunpowder’.'”

    One reason that media doesn’t get it right is lack of knowledge. Most people delivering “truth” don’t have a clue. Especially Islam seem hard to grasp.
