Jonah Goldberg v. Piers Morgan and Why Christians Don’t Do Bad Journalism

Jonah Goldberg v. Piers Morgan and Why Christians Don’t Do Bad Journalism May 1, 2012

This is an example of bad journalism.  Agree with him or not, Jonah Goldberg barely had a chance to share his views on CNN’s Piers Morgan show.

Here is another example of bad journalism: Martin Bashir ambushing Rob Bell last year.  Not good, though I agreed with the stern critique of Bell.

Christians stand for better journalism than these examples.  We don’t ambush people; we don’t steamroll them to make our points; we listen respectfully and disagree respectfully.  We stand up for truth, but we do it as those filled with grace.

(The CNN site and WordPress are not working symbiotically on this issue–Wordpress often seems to struggle handling embeds.)
