In 2015, a UNHCR report on the refugee crisis found that, "Britain’s right-wing media was uniquely aggressive in its campaigns against refugees and migrants."

In the past 5 years, not much has changed.

Today's example from the Mail Online blames far-right terror attacks in Germany on the so called 'migrant crisis' of 2015, when Angela Merkel opened the borders to migrants crossing the Mediterranean. 2/7…
The article also mentions "headline-grabbing stories of sexual assaults, notably on New Year's Eve 2015/16 when more than 1,000 women in 12 cities including Cologne claimed to have been sexually assaulted, mostly by immigrants." 3/7

A thread by @SwalihaAsiya on negative stereotyping of Muslim characters by Indian or International shows.

The entertainment industry owes the #Muslims of the world more than an apology.

The 'Muslim' shown on TV is never a realistic reflection of the actual Muslim.
He/She is either painted in black or white, with either the character honing negative ISIS-kinda extremism or a completely watered down version of a Hollywood Muslim, who parties and drinks etc.
Where are the real caricatures of a Muslim being showcased on TV?

It's either the Taliban or al-Qaida oriented terrorism spreading, suicide bombing version all over International TV or the Hollywood Muslim who has discarded the Muslim identity as if it were a cancerous malady.

90 Years ago today, Arab mobs in Chevron descended upon their Jewish neighbors, colleagues and “friends”, maiming, raping and killing dozens of men, women and small children. Among the dozens of victims were 8 students from America who were learning at the Slabodka Yeshiva: 1/10
Chaim “Hyman” Krassner HY”D of Brooklyn, NY. Came straight from @TorahVodaath . Was just 16 years old when he was martyred in a most gruesome fashion. Misinformation regarding his death causes his family to be in limbo for weeks awaiting news. 2/10
Yaakov Wexler HY”D of Chicago. As the bloodthirsty mob descended upon him, he whispered to a friend “I am happy to be dying after connecting with people who study Torah.” A hatchet came down and he fell to the ground. 17 Years Old. 3/10

A thread about #SBC19 and media.

For many years of my early career I edited media (radio) or provided oversight to other editors. I’ve long thought there was a need for an ethical framework for media editors b/c of the technological power we have at our fingertips.
I began thinking this years ago when I witnessed a credible religion journalist interview 2 prominent Southern Baptist brothers on different sides of an issue. The interviews were separate then edited together with narration.
The final cut of the interview depicted a far greater divide than there actually was between the subjects. The report inflamed the already tense conversation. But that was a secular media corp reporting on Baptist life. Little surprise they would get it wrong.

1/ If we want a Labour Government 🌹 avoid Twitter Brutality:

1. Never tweet when angry
2. Those who loathe #Corbyn & seek his demise will never be persuaded otherwise. So unless armed with facts, stats or a witty satirical retort, ignore them.
3. ALWAYS aim to be respectful

4/Acknowledge the existence of discrimation & bigotry.
5/ Stay away from #Drama however enticing. Block/mute & keep the action positive, the message inclusive & compassionate.
6/ Those who play with fire will eventually get burned whatever side of a wall they sit.

7/ if you’re good with Stats & figures, employ them to back up a debate; or ask for them to support another’s debate.
8/use rage or frustration creatively.
9/Trolls will be out there making horrible/horrific mischief-let them be exposed for the chaos. Help expose them.

THREAD (PART 3 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
It ignores well-known biases in crime data, such as whether victims disclose (‘self-selection bias’), whether reports are investigated/prosecuted (‘institutional bias’) & whether convictions make the news (‘media bias’) 2/
If using news sources, it's a big mistake to overlook #mediabias – especially as coverage of “grooming gangs” has been very racialised. Crimes involving sex, children & race ‘sell' & stories fitting an established narrative tend to get more coverage. ( 3/
