Bill Donohue comments on the way the media have covered the story on the decision by Pastor Louie Giglio to back out of giving the benediction at the inaugural ceremonies:
A left-wing website, Think Progress, attacked Pastor Giglio for remarks he made in the 1990s affirming Christian teachings on homosexuality. It cited as proof of Giglio’s bigotry passages from the Bible that brand homosexuality as sinful. Now anyone is free to disagree with the Bible, but it is unprofessional of the media to simply adopt the Think Progress agenda. More than that, it shows an egregious bias.
To be specific, media outlets that tagged Giglio’s orthodox Christian remarks as anti-gay include: ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, MSNBC, the Washington Post, Investor’s Business Daily, the Associated Press, and UPI. Those that reported the story professionally by offering a descriptive account include CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times.
