An EU funded report has called for journalists to refrain from reporting the migrant crisis in a negative light and linking Islam to terror.
Whatever happened to free press?
The report labelled “Reporting on migration and minorities” which is funded by the European Union calls on journalists to avoid reporting on the migrant crisis in a negative way, refrain from linking Islam to terror and avoid mentioning whether or not a criminal migrant was in the country illegally.
If journalists are found doing this, their colleagues are encouraged to report them to the authorities for ‘hate speech’.
The report says that although journalism cannot ‘solve the problem of hate speech on its own…the European Union must reinforce existing mechanisms and support new tools designed to combat hate speech’.
The media should also not focus on ‘issues such as whether asylum seekers’ claims are genuine’.
“Don’t fall into the trap of focusing solely on possible negative aspects of large-scale migration. It is also important to highlight positive contributions of migration and individual migrants,” they say.
The report’s author states: “When problems inside the asylum system occur – e.g, migrants riot, or an increase in small-time criminality is noted- look critically for the root cause” – which on the previous page, the authors say includes “poverty and climate change”.
Effectively the EU is urging journalists to not report what is actually happening but write about climate change and poverty instead.
They do not want you to know the scale of the problem.
Journalists are asked not to refer to Islamic culture as ‘barbaric, irrational, primitive, aggressive, threatening or prone to terrorism’ or write ‘hateful comments’ towards Muslims.
What do you think about this shocking report? It is almost certain that the EU is trying to cover up the scale of the migrant problem.
OECD received £85 million from the European Union helping fund report urging SECOND BREXIT referendum.
It’s been revealed that the OECD has received over £80 million from the European Union since 2007
The OECD report warned: “In case Brexit gets reversed by political decision (change of majority, new referendum, etc), the positive impact on growth would be significant.
“Meantime, however, uncertainty could hamper domestic and foreign investment more than projected and hurt consumption, even more, were the exchange rate to depreciate further.
“Well-being inequalities may have been one of the causes of Brexit, as less-educated workers in remote regions might have perceived to benefit less from the European project.”
