Description
Summary:This article explores whether changes in newspaper coverage of religion reflect an array of concerns that were raised in the 1990s. It seeks to establish a baseline of what groups are portrayed in staff-written articles carried on religion pages and finds that some changes reflect critics' concerns while others might appear to amplify them. Of particular interest is the growth of instrumental "values" coverage with little or no overt connection to the religious precepts that underlie its topics.
