Project provides guide to reporting Islam

Posted on: Fri 7 Apr 2017

Breakfast host Jennie Lenman recently took part in Griffiths University training program Reporting Islam. She then sat down with the project manager, Dr Abdi Hersi, as well as journalist and academic Murray Cornish, to find out more about it.

Research shows that if reporting is ignorant, unethical, sensationalised or inaccurate it can have devastating consequences.
