Centre for Media Monitoring

The Centre for Media Monitoring, a project of the Muslim Council of Britain, was launched at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday.  Its purpose is to promote fair and responsible reporting of Muslims and Islam.

CfMM’s aim is to engage constructively with the media and empower communities to make a change.

“Academics and specialists across the world recognise that mainstream media reporting of Islam and Muslims is contributing to an atmosphere of rising hostility towards Muslims in Britain. CfMM’s vision is both to highlight negative trends in the media as well as promote good practice.”

Miqdaad Versi, CfMM’s Executive Director, has been working for some time to draw attention to poor reporting and inaccurate journalism. Read a profile written about him in the Guardian last year.
