Channel 9 cameraman calls Australian Muslim a “fucking terrorist” and then his reaction is used by the media to portray “Muslim gets angry at cameraman”.
Look at this prime example of just how messed up Australia’s media is. Look at how desperate they are to fuel the xenophobia that’s sweeping through the country since the introduction of Tony Abbott’s new “Terror Laws” and raising the Terror Alert. It’s absolutely disgusting.
So important to watch this / this is just the tip of the iceberg of the racism & hatred of Muslims invested in Australia. Especially within the media. I want to clarify — in case it’s not clear from the above comment that this incident is actually a few years old, I remember seeing it on Media Watch; in light of the recent terror raids and fear mongering by the government you can only imagine how this sort of treatment of Muslims in the media and society will get worse. Always view media cynically, always be wary that the “aggressive Muslim” stereotype will be pushed.
