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

Prodi­gal Press (Revised and Updated) Con­fronting the Anti-Christian Bias of the Amer­i­can News Media, Revised and Updated

by Mar­vin Olasky and War­ren Cole Smith

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.

This book was orig­i­nally pub­lished in 1988 — now, 25 years later, it has been revised and updated by Mar­vin Olasky and War­ren Cole Smith.

The most impor­tant book about jour­nal­ism I have ever read. Prodi­gal Press is must read­ing for all Chris­tians, and all reporters, edi­tors, jour­nal­ism pro­fes­sors and students.”

—Dr. Clif­ford Kelly, Pro­fes­sor of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Stud­ies at Lib­erty Uni­ver­sity. Found­ing Direc­tor of the Insti­tute of Pub­lic Affairs Journalism
