December 13th, 2013 6:43 AM
The Washington Post's habit of promoting Muslim author Reza Aslan and his lame book about how Jesus was a political messiah resurfaced on Thursday.

December 1st, 2013 9:13 AM
The Washington Post's "On Faith" section is a forum for trashing conservatives again. After seeing their reaction to the latest critique of "trickle-down" capitalism by Pope Francis, leftist Muslim author Reza Aslan argued Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh would probably call Jesus a Marxist.

CNN Belief Blog Attacks O'Reilly's Jesus Book 'Flubs,' But Came to Mus
October 8th, 2013 1:18 PM
CNN's routine marketing lie is that they're the centrist network that doesn't take sides. In July, CNN's Belief Blog promoted Muslim creative-writing professor Reza Aslan's book about Jesus.

Guardian Reviewer Skewers Aslan's 'Zealot': It's Largely 'Vociferous A
August 8th, 2013 5:29 PM
The Guardian is unapologetically left-of-center editorially, but being a British publication, its geographical and cultural separation from the journalistic elite on this side of the pond helps inoculate it from venerating the sacred cows and cozying up to the favored pundits of the liberal media here in the States.
A prime example of that is Stuart Kelly's review of UC Riverside…
Argument of Reza Aslan's 'Zealot' So Absurd, Even Liberal Scholar Prot
August 5th, 2013 3:09 PM

Bozell Column: Fox vs. The Islam-Boosting 'Mainstream
August 3rd, 2013 8:05 AM
They may find it scandalous for someone to say so, but our secular liberal media are playing favorites with religion. They have a spoiled child, Islam. Journalists see Islam as a bullied, minority faith for brown people. Draw a cartoon of Mohammed with dynamite on his head, and you are the worst kind of trouble-making hater.
But write a book declaring that Jesus isn’t God? That…
