Muslim Hate Crimes

| | Comments (0)

File this one under "Extremely Misleading Headlines" (via Volokh). The London Times ran a story about hate crimes, including data about how many people of different religious backgrounds were the victims. The headline ran "Muslims are main victims of hate crime". Once you read the story, you realize that 10 of 18 victims over three years were Muslim, but 6 of those 10 Muslim victims were attacked by fellow Muslims. The headline is literally true, but it gives the impression that other groups are targeting Muslims, when most of the Muslims were attacked by Muslims themselves. Did they intend casual reader to conclude something from the headline that the story itself doesn't support?
