co-edited BLIND SPOT: When Journalists Dont Get Religion. Ahmanson argues that our most trusted journalists and most prestigious media outlets have missed or misconstrued some of the major stories about world affairs, public policy and culture.

Invite this expert to reveal:

  • What are some of the most egregious examples of mis-reporting hard news stories in the last few years?
  • How does religion affect so many world events?
  • Why are the media so dismissive of religion in the news?
  • Why are religious nuances relegated to the religion page?
  • What are the prospects for improved news coverage?
