Inspired by the apparent overtly negative coverage of Islam and Muslims by the mainstream press, this book explores the ways depictions of Muslims and Islam in the News inform the thoughts and actions of non-Muslims. The data reveals personal stories that point towards the normativity of news stories and their negotiated reception patterns. Individual orientations towards the media as a primary information source proved to be a significant factor behind the importance of news reports, with individually negotiated personal encounters with Muslims or Islam further affecting the meaning-making process. This research clearly shows that participant responses are (re) productions of local and personal contextuality, where the consequences of socially constructed depictions of Islam and Muslims engage rather than influence individual human thoughts and actions.
