On September 29 and 30, 2009, The Paley Center for Media hosted a Media Council Dialogue, titled Media and the Muslim World: Enriching the American Dialogue, at our New York City headquarters. Held in partnership with the Carnegie Corporation of New York, this Dialogue explored how to improve the depth and quality of the US news media's coverage of Muslim cultures, both here and abroad. The goal was to illuminate new approaches and resources that can help journalists and news executives overcome challenges to providing comprehensive and accurate information on Islam and Muslims to the American public information that is vital for meaningful and productive public discourse on major foreign and domestic policy issues. This program is part of the Carnegie Corporation's $10 million investment to enrich the quality of America's public dialogue on Islam and Muslim societies. In announcing this initiative, Carnegie Corporation President Vartan Gregorian said, We hope that our work will better equip Americans to make informed decisions about, and engage with, various Muslim communities in our midst as well as those abroad.
