Prodigal Press: Confronting the Anti-Christian Bias of the American News Media

Despite claiming to be neutral, print and TV journalists increasingly report news from an anti-Christian standpoint. Remarkably, however, leading nineteenth-century newspapers reported news from a Christian perspective. This book reveals how the American news media shifted from a Christian worldview to secular humanism, radically altering what the media covers and how it is reported.

The press has always been anti-Christian.

Olasky makes a very solid argument against the intrinsic bias of the owners and publishers of mainstream media. The bias is institutional. Part of the problem of the liberal elite is that they don't pretend to have neutrality, as they consider being liberal as a morally superior option. Easy to read, and recommended.

A Good Read for Troubled Times

A very wonderfull historical look into the press and how it has changed in its views as well as its abilitiy to reach a certain sence of objectivity. The author states that you can never really be totally objective, but you can strive to get as close to it as possible. I would address that the study of a few of the major members of Journalism's history was one of the best chapters of the book because it gives you a shocking prespective of what these men really were and the terrible ends they faced at the end of their tourtured journeys. I was very surprised to read exactly who Pulizer was and what exactly the Pulizer Award may insue when one obtains it. I gave it less then 5 stars because at times, the religious portions of the book get a bit too preachy for my tastes, but then, since it is a christian like peice, it is to be expected and that is fine. It may turn away some readers but I think it still is a great peice of knowledge for research.

The Press Wasn't Always Liberal

Olasky used his courage and wisdom to do the research it took to write this book. He has shown us how the print press in particular has changed in its coverage of events and society. The New York Times and Boston Globe with christian-based news reports? Yes. God fearing editorials? Yes. Its all there and more! A great read if you are into subjects ranging from Christian Press to History. Geron L - a reader
