Muslim Media Toolkit: Questions for Newsrooms/Journalists
The Reynolds Journalism Institute is creating a toolkit for journalists to better cover Muslims and Islam in the media.

The majority of media coverage on Islam and Muslims has been overwhelmingly reactionary, related to violence and public policy. Knowing this, we want to give newsrooms the tools to fairly and effectively represent the Muslim population in your daily coverage as a part of your communities.

We would like to hear from newsrooms and journalists to further understand what features would make this toolkit most useful to you in your work.
