Shard posted a topic in Study RoomI am currently doing an assignment at school about how the media manipulates and changes some facts so that they get a better story and/or public reaction. I hate how the Islamic religious tradition has been indirectly (and possibably directly) accused for a whole bunch of problems. I want to research how the general publics view on Islam has changed due to the media. I have a focus question which pretty much defines what I'm researching, here it is: "How has the portrayel of Islamic related social issues prompted response from Australians regarding Islamic issues?" I'm not sure if these forums are Australian, but I think that it is reasonable to asume that whatever country people are from they would get very similar media stories. If not, I guess I could use a variety of different countries views on the matter. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
