Review quote

"A fresh interpretation of religious news coverage... Religion ordinarily gets an easy ride, says Silk, because the American public by and large favors religiousness. The press either reflects that favorable view or, with an eye to the market, caters to it... Silk is onto something. He is even likely to have a long-term if subtle effect on religious coverage in the secular press." -- Martin Marty, Christian Centuryshow more
