The Drudge Report leads with this story by Reuters, which says that new statistics from the Vatican indicate that for the first time in recorded history, there are more Muslims than Roman Catholics. (There are still more Christians overall, though. Thank Goodness!)
The important thing here is how Drudge chooses to present the story. He writes, “MUSLIMS MORE NUMEROUS THAN CATHOLICS” along with this frightening picture of what is presumably a would-be suicide bomber:
Is this fair journalism? Am I being some kind of over-sensitive pansy? Or is this really alrmist, racist, propaganda that perpetuates a dangerous myth about a Crusade-like clash of civilizations? Or maybe it’s somewhere in between. Maybe this is just another good example of the biases that are unfortunately, unproductively common in mainstream media.
