Dear All,
You might be interested in a PhD-thesis defended at Univerity of Toronto by Danish scholar Ms Rikke Andersen in 2005 on the following link.

The Mass Media's Construction of Gender, Race, Sexuality and Nationality. An Analysis of the Danish News Media's Communication about Visible Minorities.

It is rich with undeniable evidence that the Danish mass media, both the public service TV and the commercial press have systematically been engaged with an anti-immigrant in general and anti-Muslim in particular ideology (propaganda) for many years. 

While she was engaged with her research and studies, a couple of newspapers interviewed her and published about her programme for research at the University of Toronto

Today when she is finished with her PhD, and presently affiliated with University of  Malmoe, Sweden, no media in Denmark seems interested to talk about her findings from the rigorous research.
