Islam in the British press…

It’s worthy to read a briefing about

“Representations of
Islam in the British
1998 – 2009″ (CASS, Lancaster University).

They make the following “good practice recommendations” (Very valid for Spain…):

•Allow more space to quote and reflect the views of  “ordinary” Muslims

•Acknowledge different branches of Islam rather than  constructing Islam as a single religion, particularly as  different from and in conflict with ‘The West’

•Consider the cumulative impact of associating Islam with  terror, extremism and conflict and attempt more balanced reporting with coverage of a wider range of  contexts (culture, education, business, leisure, human interest stories, travel)

•Consider more carefully whether the religious orientation of people in stories is actually relevant to the reporting

•Avoid publishing letters or opinion pieces which are  deliberately aimed to be offensive or misleading
