Daily Star led with non-Muslim Katie Price and Peter Andre 32 times in 2011

by | 13th, January 2012

HOW many times did the Daily Star feature Muslims on its front page in 2011? Dawn Neesom, the paper’s editor, was at the Leveson Inquiry. Robert Jay QC wondered if the Daily Star has published any positive Muslim stories. Does the paper that once had a brain-freeze and supported the anti-Islam EDL and warned against Mulsim only toilets, have an agenda? Said Neesom:

“Yes there was the story of the recent riots in the summer and the very very brave man who spoke out to the Islamic community about his son’s death. It was a very moving story.”

Only Emma Wall’s story of three Muslims killed  in Birmingham riots  makes not one mention of the word “Muslim”. Only this front-page headline did, explicitly: “Muslim thugs aged just 12 in knife attack on Brit schoolboy.”

The Daily Star was not alone in this. The Mail said there were “five Muslim boys and one white girl”. The Sun forgot the white girl totally:

FIVE Muslim schoolboys threatened to kill a classmate on Facebook — because he posted comments supporting BRITISH troop

Says Neesom: “We are not biased against Muslims. This is not a story I was aware of. I didn’t write the headline. I will address the story when I get back to the office.”

Jay asks Neesom to provide the inquiry with examples of the Star’s “positive Islamic stories”. The lawyer for Northern & Shell quickly submitted a number of articles in relation to anti-Islamic headlines.

Helpfully, Scott Ryan has looked at the Daily Star front page for 2011. It turns out the Daily Star’s agenda is not Muslims – it’s Peter Andre, Jordan,  Big Brother, the X Factor and Ryan Giggs:

Then of course, the other Wills and Kate of our lives, Jordan and Peter…
