Hate-filled media stories are creating a violent culture of hostility towards migrants and refugees.
A recent United Nations report singled out the UK’s media as being “uniquely aggressive in its campaigns against refugees and migrants.”
The Daily Mail leads the pack, relentlessly portraying migrants in a negative light, only ever seeing them as a problem and never as human beings who can enrich the societies where they relocate.
Given the rise in violent hate crime that we’ve seen in recent months, we need to stand up to the parts of the media that are helping legitimise racist and xenophobic attitudes. That means challenging the Daily Mail.
