Download RMIG members’ report on anti-Muslim mid-term election tweets

Dr. Lawrence Pintak of Washington State University’s Edward R. Murrow College of Communication was lead author on a major Social Science Research Council report on anti-Muslim sentiment on Twitter against Muslim candidates in the 2018 mid-term election, “#Islamophobia: Stoking Fear and Prejudice in the 2018 Midterms.”

The report launched with a New York Times OpEd by the team, which included Jonathan Albright, director of digital forensics at Columbia’s Tow Center, and Brian J. Bowe of Western Washington University. It generated coverage in The Washington Post, the Detroit Free Press, Wired Magazine, Al Jazeera and other media outlets.

The report follows Pintak’s most recent book, “America & Islam: Soundbites, Suicide Bombs and the Road to Donald Trump,” which was published in June by I.B. Tauris/Bloomsbury.
