Islamophobia in Focus: Muslims & the Media

September 22, 2016

On September 22, 2016, the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute hosted a panel discussion about recent findings that show that 9 out of 10 news reports about Muslims, Islam, and Islamic organizations are related to violence — war or terrorism. Alarmingly, media representations of Islam were worse in 2015 than any other time since 9/11. The discussion was moderated by Engy Abdelkader, assistant director of the Bridge Initiative, and co-sponsored by the Bridge Initiative.
