Did the NYT soft peddle Palin's faith?September 6, 2008 10:05 AM EDT ››› ERIC BOEHLERT
In A1 Saturday article, the Times addressed the question of Palin's faith and wondered what impact it would have on her governing style if she became VP. Here are three phrases the Times did not include in its article, even though all three pertain to her chosen faith: "End days," "Armageddon," and "Second Coming."
Why did the Times not address any of those in an article about Palin's religious beliefs?
By contrast, the Chicago Tribune is much more factual in its handling of the same issue today:
"The churches she has attended also embrace dispensation, a theological system that emphasizes man's dominion over the earth and the end times-theology that could potentially shape a believer's environmental and foreign policies."
