RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 854848048 LA English T1 Prodigal press : confronting the anti-Christian bias of the American news media A1 Olasky, Marvin N., Smith, Warren Cole., YR 2013 SN 9781596385979 1596385979 AB In the nineteenth century, leading newspapers reported from a Christian perspective. Today, however, print and TV journalists increasingly take an anti-Christian stance while claiming to be neutral. Prodigal Press uncovers the shift to secular humanism that has radically altered what the media cover and how they report it. Issuing a clarion call for Christians to reclaim American journalism, Olasky and Smith examine the influence of worldviews on reporting, objectivity, sensationalism, and crusading; the impact of legal, ethical, and technological changes; and the changes brought about by the 24/7 news cycle, the Internet, and social media. - Back cover.
