Conservatives have understood for a long time that the mainstream media harbors a great deal of animosity towards Christians.
We see examples of it all the time and just recently two Christian TV stars were smeared and marginalized by BuzzFeed simply for being Christians.
It was troubling to watch.
Now, an editor for one of the largest liberal mouthpieces on the planet is finally admitting what Christians have known for years.
From AOL News:
The executive editor of the New York Times said in an interview this week that journalists at his publication, and elsewhere, have a hard time understanding religion and the role it plays in people’s lives.
Dean Baquet told NPR one of his goals after the election was to “make sure that we are much more creative about beats out in the country so that we understand that anger and disconnectedness that people feel.”
“And I think I use religion as an example because I was raised Catholic in New Orleans,” he said. “I think that the New York-based — and Washington-based too, probably — media powerhouses don’t quite get religion.”
Baquet continued: “We have a fabulous religion writer, but she’s all alone. We don’t get religion. We don’t get the role of religion in people’s lives. And I think we can do much, much better.”
A pretty startling admission don’t you think?
This is the New York Times. The “paper of record”. The most well-known publication in the world.
And they are telling us they “don’t get religion”?
How long is it going to take for them to get it? Christians have only been around for a couple thousand years.
Talk about out of touch. Clearly, there are a lot of things the New York Times “doesn’t get” and maybe Trump’s victory can finally be the catalyst for change the paper has desperately needed for years.
