What Can Be Done?
- Tuesday, March 09, 2004
To counteract media bias, Christians are fighting back by finding alternative sources for news. This has inspired the founding of Christian radio and television stations that present another kind of news, and the rise of Internet sites.
Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin says:
NPR liberals are horrified. Across the country, thousands of radio listeners are tuning out conservative-basher Nina Totenberg, and tuning in conservative heroine Phyllis Schlafly ... For years, National Public Radio has gotten away with the smearing of religious groups and individuals, as it did earlier this year when NPR reporter David Kestenbaum falsely suggested that the Traditional Values Coalition, a Christian political action group, was responsible for the anthrax letters sent to Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., and Patrick Leahy, D-VT. Now religious groups are fighting back by taking over NPR's turf. American Family Radio, based in Tupelo, MS, now operates more than 200 stations nationwide and has applications pending with the Federal Communications Commission for hundreds more noncommercial radio outlets."36
Stay tuned, the best may be yet to come.
