Anti-Muslim stereotypes increase on TV, hampering understanding
November 22, 2013. Washington D.C. -- With a decreased focus on the lives of Muslims in the Western world in U.S. and European TV, stereotypes and negativity have been increasing in the news, according to new research from Media Tenor International. The findings were presented Media Tenor CEO and founder Roland Schatz at the Alwaleed bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University as part of the Muslim-Christian Relations in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities conference.
“Despite the increasing need for better understanding between people of all religious faiths, overall the news media is not helping to build compassion and tolerance, but, in many cases, is actively working against it,” says Schatz, who notes that Media Tenor analyzed over 430,000 news reports from 2007 to 2013 in recognition of Professor John L. Esposito’s tireless work on these issues with the ACMU.
Muslim-Christian Relations in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities is an exploration and critical discussion of the contemporary challenges facing religious pluralism and Muslim-Christian relations. This conference commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Alwaleed bin-Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU). Founded in 1993, the Center has spent the last two decades building stronger bridges of understanding between the Muslim world and the West, as well as between Islam and Christianity.
