This video playlist shows the results of media monitoring undertaken in June 2018 in France, Germany, UK, Belgium, Greece and Hungary as part of the Get The Trolls Out project.
From a Belgian politician comparing Islam to Nazism, to fake news being portrayed misleadingly as actual news in Hungary, these June highlights are an overview of the most significant results of our monitoring of traditional and new media in Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, and the United Kingdom.
June media monitoring highlight for Greece. Tzimeros uses words such as “cleaning” and “cancer of humanity”. In doing so, he is dehumanising people by reducing them to a disease.
June media monitoring highlight for Germany. If the killer was Christian, would we quote Bible’s 1 Timothy 2:12, in which St Paul says “I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, she must be silent”?
June media monitoring highlight for Belgium. Comparing Islamist terrorists, or Islam in general, to Nazism is a narrative used by many far-right wing politicians. This is incorrect from several perspectives.
June media monitoring highlight for Hungary. Origo took the story from Infowars, a known fake news website that, in turn, had taken the story from Voice of Europe, another known fake news website.
June media monitoring highlight for France. Dupont-Aignan used the word “colonised” when referring to migrants living in France. This is not just paradoxical. This is also offensive.
An anti-Muslim biased photo on the Belgian news outlet La Libre has been replaced after the European Forum of Muslim Women (EFOMW) sent a complaint to the newspaper.
