Today, it is almost heartbreaking to turn on the news. It seems that everything I was taught as a child is flipped upside down. To be a Christian is labeled as bigoted and hateful.

Love all the historical stuff. It's fascinating to see how journalists have seen themselves and their craft over the years.

Olasky covers the history of Christian and secular journalism while adding his thoughts on how Christians should view the media and interact with it. Although he makes some good points and interesting suggestions, he is far too inclined to go off on rants about silly issues such as public schools. His points of view were very strong and he left no room for anyone doubting him. Everyone was against him or must agree completely. Still, this book was educational and though-provoking.
