Nicholas Kristof examines bias against evangelical or born-again Christians in the news media. I think the bias he identifies is certainly real. In fact, I’d say it’s similar or related to the bias academia has against evangelical thinking (or most faith-based thinking/reasoning for that matter).
I have maintained that the biases of journalism are mostly structural. That is not to say there are no ideological biases. Does the attitude Kristof identifies qualify as an ideological bias? I’m not sure how to answer that question. But I’ll be thinking about it. If you have thoughts about it, please leave a comment.
