Few national institutions emerge with dignity or enhanced credibility from the Stephen Lawrence murder case, but media have more reason to be cheerful than most.

 

Media coverage of the Stephen Lawrence murder from the beginning rightly emphasised the need for a radical overhaul of the police and elimination of the institutional racism exposed by the 1999 Macpherson report into police handling of the case.

Aidan White in Karachi and Islamabad Finds Media ready to Clean Up their Act

If there is one place where people have good reason not to believe everything they read in the papers it’s Pakistan. According to the western media narrative, this country is on the edge of the abyss - consumed by political violence, Islamist extremism and endemic corruption. Democracy, if it exists at all, is at best enjoyed in twilight conditions. It is, according to many, a basket case.

Shocking revelations about a neo-Nazi group in Germany that for ten years engaged in a murderous campaign of violence killing at least ten people has provoked an angry debate about right-wing extremism and the racism and xenophobia still infect German society.

“It’s tiresomely obvious, but not made clear at all in this work that Al Qaeda is a terrorist group, and the fact that although members of that terrorist group are almost always Muslims, does not make all Muslims part of it. Frank Miller has fallen into the trap of smearing the whole Muslim community in his enthusiasm to point the finger at terrorists.”

The comic book is a powerful medium that can educate, entertain or inspire or, with equal force, it can enrage and irritate.

Everyone knows about racism in sports – on the terraces, in the dressing room and in the culture of institutional prejudice within the industry. But media often turn a blind eye to the worst of it, lowering the volume to avoid hearing the bigoted chanting of fans or passing up stories that might embarrass powerful people in sports who control a multi-billion global business.

They’ve been ‘occupying’ Wall Street for almost a month, but people looking for information on what it’s all about are forced to go offshore for television journalism that will explain it to them. Mainstream media coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protest in the United States has been lamentable. As Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show put it; the American news media "moved its coverage dial from 'blackout' to 'circus.' But those are the only two settings it has."

By Fitri Adi Anugrah

Social media provide easily accessible tools for people to spread information to a wider audience, but they can do damage when their messages are hateful. That's why it is important for the Indonesian public to confront the problem of hate speech in the social media in Indonesia.
