I’m a big fan of This American Life, so it was gratifying to see host Ira Glass, an atheist, say that Christians get a bad deal from the media. What’s interesting about the clip above is his saying that he noticed a big discrepancy between the way Christians are portrayed in the media, and the actual Christians he knew personally. And not just mainline Protestants, he says, but even a fundamentalist colleague.
Speaking of media distortion, did you see this funny satire of the American media? It asks the question, “What if the foreign press covered America the way the American media covers overseas?”
