New York Mag Goes Hogg Wild for Vulgar, NRA-Reviling Student Activist

August 21st, 2018 5:13 PM
Lisa Miller wrote an embarrassingly obsequious profile of the incredibly vulgar and aggressive anti-gun student activist David Hogg for the August 20 New York Magazine, as Hogg's 15 minutes of fame continues after the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla.: "Like so many young men in so many foxholes before him, Hogg discovered in himself a powerful drive not to leave this Earth…

New York Mag Flunks ‘Zealot’ and ‘Bully' Education Secretary DeVos

August 1st, 2017 11:09 AM
Journalist Lisa Miller has a hostile 5,500-word profile of "bully" Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in the July 24 edition of New York magazine, complete with cloying, cutesy “portraits” of DeVos (none particularly gentle-looking) “commissioned” from schoolchildren. The headline selection serves as a reliable CliffsNotes summary of the text: “Who Is Betsy…

Daily Beast Asks: 'Can We Please Get God Out of Religion?'

May 24th, 2015 8:53 AM
In a competition for Dumbest Headline Ever, we might consider the Daily Beast asking, “Can We Please Get God Out of Religion?” The subheadline was “We all need a spiritual side. But not because of some make-believe afterlife. Because it makes us better in this life.” Barrett Holmes Pitner wrote this as one of those godless “millennials” now showing up in Pew…

Rewriting the Bible: The Gospel According to Liberals

March 13th, 2013 1:45 PM
When liberals and their media allies have an agenda to push, they’ll use any tool at hand. The left often rails against the presence of religion in civic life, mocking conservative Christians as “Taliban” agitating for theocracy. But other times, they find faith to be a handy weapon to bludgeon conservatives. And they’ll go so far as to reinterpret and rewrite the Bible…

WashPost On Faith Page Celebrates Muslim Modesty But Trashes Catholic

February 9th, 2013 7:08 PM
Today's "On Faith" page in the Washington Post featured a puzzling contrast that shows the left-wing media's schizophrenia when it comes to traditional religious faith. The paper's religion section editors ran these two items side-by-side: a Religion News Service (RNS) article that was thoroughly positive about Muslim women who want to design and/or model fashionable yet…

WashPost Religion Reporter Miller Lectures Christians to be Anti-Gun R

January 28th, 2013 1:10 PM
The Washington Post's religion writers have been hard at work of late to boost the religious left's push for more stringent gun control legislation. On Thursday, for example, Post religion writer Michelle Boorstein treated readers of the paper's Metro section with a puffy front-page item celebrating the pulpit-pounding for gun control from the likes of the dean of the Episcopal…

Special Report: Taking ‘Christ’ Out of Christmas

December 11th, 2012 11:41 AM
Christmas: a season of generosity, good cheer, preparation for Christ’s birth – and a swarm of lawyers seeking to purge any mention of Christianity from the public square. Every Christmas, the so-called secular community starts shrieking whenever any mention of religion is brought into the public eye. Lawyers successfully targeted a school’s performance of ‘A Charlie…

Anti-Catholic Media Claim Paul Ryan is Not Catholic Enough

September 3rd, 2012 11:04 AM
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is a Catholic – but not a good enough Catholic in the eyes of the media. Writers, bloggers, and talking heads have hammered Ryan for his supposed “dissent” from Catholic teaching. Journalists have falsely claimed that the bishops “rebuked” Ryan and called his budget “un-Christian.” Writers who…

WashPost's Miller: Media Should Ignore 'Astroturf' Black Pastors Oppos

August 4th, 2012 1:49 PM
On the Saturday Washington Post “On Faith” page, columnist and Newsweek religion editor Lisa Miller insisted it was not a news story that black ministers came to the National Press Club and insisted Obama’s support for gay marriage “might cost him the election.” It’s not a story, Miller insisted, because Rev William Owens is “enough to make a cynic…

WashPost's Lisa Miller Unglued: Vatican Wants Leftist Nuns to Be Seen

June 10th, 2012 6:26 AM
You don’t have to be Catholic to find the liberal media often sounds intentionally clueless when it writes about the Catholic Church publicly identifying for people both inside and outside the church what its teaching is. When the church makes an announcement that perhaps someone who supports abortion, homosexuality, and masturbation isn’t really anywhere on the planet of…

Bill Donohue Column: It's the First Amendment, Stupid

May 29th, 2012 6:11 PM
The central issue in the fight between the Obama administration and the Catholic Church is the right of the federal government to redefine religious institutions as entities that hire and serve mostly people of their own faith. Secondarily, the fight is over forcing Catholics to pay for abortion-inducing drugs. But one looks in vain for the Church’s critics to even acknowledge this…

WashPost Columnist Sees Catholic Church As Very Conservative 'Authorit

May 27th, 2012 2:00 PM
Don’t look for sophistication in The Washington Post’s coverage of the Catholic lawsuits against ObamaCare. Religion columnist Lisa Miller began on Saturday: “Mommy and daddy are fighting, and the anguished children don’t know where to turn.” “A small group of very conservative bishops has hijacked the church, or at least the public voice of the church,…

WashPost's Miller Sad That Nuns No Longer Escape the 'Oppression of Ma

April 30th, 2012 8:33 AM
In Saturday’s Washington Post, religion columnist Lisa Miller brought her usual radical feminism to the table insisting Mary be “heard” as the Vatican insisted that American nuns and sisters actually act like they belong to the Catholic Church. But this line stood out: “For more than a thousand years, women like Mary have entered religious life hoping to find a safe…

Bobby Rush: 'Lynched' on the House Floor by Mississippi Republican

April 2nd, 2012 8:02 AM
When Rep. Bobby Rush donned a hoodie and sunglasses on the House floor as a stunt to publicize his opposition to the handling of Trayvon Martin's death in Florida, McClatchy News Service cooed, "For the 65-year-old former 1960s Black Panther Party activist, an act of civil disobedience never felt so good." But Washington Post columnist Lisa Miller inflated the stunt way beyond…
