Scrolling news:

White non-Muslim sex offenders treated differently by media

19th Jun 2015

Sir, It is very alarming to read that a white gang have been found guilty of raping babies and toddlers. I’ve read numerous similar cases involving White, Christian middle aged men, not just here in the UK but around the world.

I understand why The Muslim News chose to lead with the headline “White paedophile gang guilty”.

The Daily Mail, The Sun, The Telegraph, The Guardian and all other major media outlets in the UK have no problem reporting on “Asian Muslim paedophiles” which begs the question exactly why are they so reluctant to apply the same logic in the coverage of this story (and numerous others) involving white Anglo-Saxon Christian men? Double standards much?
