Submission to the Communications and Digital Committee inquiry into ‘the future of news: impartiality, trust and technology’

Community Policy Forum has submitted written evidence to the House of Lords Communications and Digital Select Committee inquiry, ‘The future of news: impartiality, trust, and technology’.

We argue that bias and disinformation found across the UK’s news media landscape is eroding trust and alienating Muslim and other minoritised communities. Meanwhile, current press regulation mechanisms are failing to sufficiently address press abuses, thereby further ostracising these communities and impacting their trust in the industry. 

Consequently, we recommend that the Government implements strategies to ensure independent public interest journalism, tackle discrimination in the press against Muslims/ other minoritised communities, and safeguard an independent system of media regulation.
