The way some British media depicts Islam and Muslims negatively is much worse than it was in 2011, former Tory co-chair and member of the House of Lords Sayeeda Warsi said Tuesday.
Providing evidence to the House of Commons' Home Affairs Committee on "hate crime and its violent consequences", Warsi said British Muslims were constantly targeted by certain print media outlets.
"I could spend hours and hours on negative depiction by the written press," she said.
Warsi said low-level poisoning via negatively written stories was now a "daily occurrence".
Chris Frost, the chairman of the National Union of Journalists, said the "problem is a large-scale" problem now.
