Report “Innocent Mistakes”: How Media Failure Inspires Hate PDF Print

Published: 16 May 2013

Region: Worldwide

innocent mistakes photoThe Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) launched a report that gets to the heart of the ethical crisis facing journalists and media who struggle to maintain standards in the online age. The report Innocent Mistakes highlights the influence on media of deeply-embedded stereotypes and how the rush to publish is squeezing editorial standards, says Aidan White, the editor of the report.

The Media Diversity Institute (MDI) has contributed to the report by providing the analysis of media in the UK and the United States. MDI team members are amongst the authors of the report, as well as the designers of a publication.

The EJN report reviews coverage by major media in Britain, the United States, Turkey and Pakistan of the controversy over the Innocence of Muslims , a short video which came to prominence in September last year when it was uploaded to YouTube with anti-Islamic content.

Thomas Blachman, jazz musician and X-factor judge, is the host who gives the name to the show. He sits on a sofa and, together with another male guest, scrutinises the woman who stands up naked in front of them.

The show has faced harsh condemnations over the way it represents women.
