The Daily Advocate
The Providence Journal outdoes itself with a much attenuated version of this AP filing. The Projo splashes the headline and lead:
Fighting gay marriage hurts Mormon image
Observers say the church’s heavy-handed intervention into California politics will linger and has left the faith’s image tarnished.
What observers does the article cite? The organizer of a gay “kiss-in” and the executive director of a San Francisco lesbian advocacy group, the latter of whom bases her observation on what she’s hearing “from my community and from straight progressive individuals.”
I wonder how much of the current angst in American society has its origin in the utter distrust of the news media to even attempt to offer an objective explanation of current events and policy debates.
