Let’s count the stereotypes: covering Islam, Oct.27

Miss USA Click on Miss USA for the video.

Let’s count the sterotypes, as Mona ElTahawy does in this Time.com video. Let’s count them so we don’t repeat them in what we report.

But how do we know what’s a stereotype?

How do we focus our reporting so that it is real and compelling and factual in regards to Islam, Chicago’s Muslims and all the news that has been swirling around Islam here and across the globe?

Come to the forum on reporting on Islam that we are sponsoring with the Chicago Headline Club on Wednesday, Oct. 27. The 6:30 p.m meeting is at Gage Gallery, Roosevelt University, 18 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago.

A panel with first-hand knowledge about reporting on Islam will offer suggestions and answer your questions.
