The media's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week

Shares of the U.S. media company rose to an intraday high of .16 on Monday, up more than 11 percent, propelled by a rumor that Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim was seeking to buy the New York Times, where he became a minority stakeholder in 2008. Slim's spokesman has, however, said there is no change in the stake holding. | (Photo: REUTERS/Lucas Jackson)

No one at Twitter, Buzzfeed, or the Washington Post got gum stuck in their hair, or fell into a mud puddle or got stuck with lima beans for dinner –at least as far as I know. But, still, last week wasn’t great for the American news media.

First, there was that breathless meltdown over Second Lady Karen Pence, or as The New York Times put it, “Karen Pence Is Teaching at Christian School That Bars L.G.B.T. Students and Teachers.” One CNN commentator wrote that even if the school has “a right to its brand of hate,” her teaching there is “deplorable” and the school’s conviction about sex and marriage is “disgusting.”

What they should’ve called it was “Christian.” Either these journalists don’t know, or don’t care to know, that thousands of Christian schools expect their students and employees to behave in a way that complies with biblical morality, not to mention most Christians cling, still, to a biblical vision of male and female.
