Read our new report: White supremacism and the absence of press regulation

Please note that the Report referred to and linked to in this email contains abusive language.

Dear FRiend

National newspaper stories packed with errors are being shared by white supremacists as propaganda.

Read our new report:
White supremacism and the absence of press regulation

Internet forums are fertile breeding grounds for neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Falsehoods and racist material have long been posted online, shared amongst these communities, without challenge.

The content they share typically comes from conspiracists or fanatical websites. But our report, published today, identifies another source of disinformation for propagandists: major stories published in national newspapers. 

Read and share our new report: ‘White Supremacism, The Press and The Absence of Regulation’
Our investigation examined the way five major news stories, which had the effect of demonising Muslims or immigrants, were shared by or credited as evidence for the worldview of white supremacists.

Each story was demonstrably false.

Watch now:
How white supremacists are sharing false newspaper stories as propaganda

In respect of each of the stories highlighted in the report, complaints were either rejected by IPSO or the sanction applied was deeply inadequate.

IPSO’s failure to remedy abuses and inaccuracies adequately leaves newspapers with no real incentive to get their facts right.

Help us fight for change.

Read the report, and share it on Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you for taking a stand with us, 
The Hacked Off team 

PS: We rely on your generosity to support the victims of press abuse, and campaign for change.  If you are able to support our campaign with a monthly or one-off donation, please click here. Thank you for your support.

The need for an independent regulator that genuinely holds newspapers to account is more urgent than ever.
