For many Canadians, the attacks of 9/11 produced feelings of insecurity, vulnerability, and suspicion of "Muslims." How did these negative attitudes come about? Many point to the complicity of the news media in reproducing racist images of Muslim minorities. Mission Invisible chronicles varying racialized constructions of Muslim communities in the news during the most significant stage of reportage: the initial weeks when the events, issues, and primary actors of 9/11 were all first framed by journalists. By unravelling the discourse and rhetoric of news coverage in Canada at the dawn of the 9/11 era, this book not only uncovers racist representations of Muslim communities but also reveals the discursive processes that rendered this racism invisible.
