Face the facts: Islamophobia

The Radio 4 programme on Islamophobia was very interesting for a number of reasons, which I’ll attempt to cover here. If you missed the programme you can catch it on the BBC iPlayer here.

Firstly, the opening story is very powerful in that it demonstrates perfectly the way that tabloid journalism so often works: huge front page headline that is not true, followed up by the correction (or admission that the newspaper essentially invented the story) buried on a different page.
