Preview

Once relegated to the private sphere, or confined to its own section of the newspaper, religion is now a major part of daily news coverage. Every journalist needs a basic knowledge of religion to cover everything from presidential elections to the war in Iraq to the ethical issues raised by latest developments in medical research. The first section of this book examines how the history of the mass media and the role religion played in its growth. The second looks at how the major media formats—print, broadcast, and online—deal with religion. The next two sections focuses on how journalists cover major religious traditions and particular issues that have religion angles. The fifth deals with the religious press, from the Christian Broadcasting Network to The Forward. The final section discusses how the American press covers the rest of the world.
