The New 'Islam For Journalists' Whitewashes Jihad
Investor's Business Daily
"Top academic experts on Islam" have issued new reporting guidelines for newsrooms to improve the "accuracy" of media coverage of Islam. The reference guide is little more than a whitewash.
Titled "Islam for Journalists: A Primer on Covering Muslim Communities in the U.S.," the digital handbook is anything but accurate, sugarcoating jihad as a "positive" exercise — a "struggle for God."
"It is inaccurate to use the term simply as a synonym for violence," claims the guide, published by the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication.
