Say What?

One of my all time favorite sites is Get Religion, a site that critiques how the press reports on or draws religion into news stories. And they don’t disappoint with this article about a headline a couple of weeks ago condemning churches as essentially Coronavirus hotbeds. I remember seeing the headline and thinking it was excessive, to say the least. This article does a good job at breaking down the bias, the lack of any kind of support and the false contextualization, all in an effort to malign churches (probably) and Trump (definitely).

Be careful what you read, folks. Or more importantly, be careful how you read. Think about what’s being said in a context larger than the sentence or paragraph or article it’s embedded in.
