Here is an interesting column about the role of religion in every day life but especially how it is covered by news media groups.
For full disclosure, the author was one of my professors in college. He is also one of the most interesting people I know, especially in the news industry.
What do you think, does religion get enough actual news coverage, outside of the opinion page? If not, is it ignorance, prejudice or fear that keeps media from covering religion like it is its own beat?
Let me know what you think!
