Muslims and the News Media

Front Cover
Elizabeth Poole, John E. Richardson
I.B.Tauris, Jan 27, 2006 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 240 pages
Set in both British and international contexts, this text is designed as a comprehensive and critical textbook which clearly establishes the links between context, content, production and audiences. Looking closely at a wide range of journalistic genres the authors examine the influence of Muslims in the processes of news production, and the ways in which audiences, both Muslim and non-Muslim, consume this media. The book brings together different perspectives to provide insights into the representation--and misrepresentation--of Islam and Muslims today.
