Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Interesting piece today in the New Statesman about the state of journalism when it comes to reporting on Muslim-related stories.

When a paper that is not a tabloid, and which has a respectable investigations team, publishes four erroneous front page stories and makes no effort to explain itself, what is it left with? Are these people still journalists? If you cannot meet basic standards of honesty and accuracy, which is your actual job, nor make amends when you do not, are you still a journalist?]
All about clicks and shares, and the climate where Muslim stories facilitate the most clicks and shares seem to have made such articles exempt from accepted journalistic standards to the point where facts are replaced with dog-whistle fantasy.
