Don’t have a cow over Chick-fil-A, man!

My post on the unlikely friendship between Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy and Campus Pride executive director Shane Windmeyer prompted GetReligion reader Joel to comment: I’ve seen it pointed out that these days, the real story is to be found in the comments on a story. The comments on the HuffPo piece seem to bear that [Read More...]

MSM’s upside-down Chick-fil-A sandwich

Remember when pickles, buttered buns and fried chicken filets were all we could talk about over the summer? I’m referring, of course, to the big brouhaha over Chick-fil-A (catch up here, here, here, here and here if you happened to be stranded on a deserted island during that time). Now comes an update from USA [Read More...]

Remember Chick-fil-A? Still making news!

Even as we head into beautiful fall color changes, we’re still talking about Chick-fil-A apparently. No news becomes news apparently, if you read this Associated Press report that spends most of the story rehashing what happened earlier this summer. Chick-fil-A is once again in the public relations fryer. The controversy flared up this week when [Read More...]

LATimes on Chick-fil-A: Where’s the journalism?

A long, long, time ago — almost a decade, in fact — there was a Los Angeles Times editor who wrote a letter to his section editors in which he defended solid, old-fashioned American journalism.

No, I am not going there. To put it bluntly, I am [Read More...]

Pod people: Boy Scout leak and grassroots sourcing

I’ve done a couple of posts (here and here) on the Boy Scouts of America’s consideration of lifting its ban on openly gay members and adult leaders. The New York Times reported today on a new development: A leak from inside the Boy Scouts of America last month about discussions on possibly ending the group’s national ban [Read More...]

SPLC to get Sarah Palin treatment any day now

I want to talk about media coverage of the man who was convicted today of shooting up the Family Research Council. But let’s first go back to the horrible story about the murderous rampage that one disturbed individual went on in Arizona. The mainstream media narrative, initially, was that a right wing Tea Party supporter [Read More...]

Symbolic defeat for a Christian business in Maryland

After spending more than a week on the road, I returned home — as always — to find a large stack of ink-stained dead tree pulp that needed to be sorted a read. I refer, of course, to all the back issues of the newspaper that lands in my front yard. As you would expect, [Read More...]
