The current issue of The Public Interest headlines a piece that just may be the best article on press bias I’ve ever read. In “Our Secularist Democratic Party,” Louis Bolce and Gerald DeMaio show that the real story of religion and politics in the past few decades has not been the takeover of the Republican party by religious conservatives. On the contrary, the real change since the sixties has been the takeover of the Democratic party by militant secularists. The rise of ideological secularists within the Democratic party–and particularly the party leadership–is an historically unprecedented and hugely significant development. Yet it has been entirely ignored by the media–chiefly because the media elite is also secular, and would rather skewer the Republicans than accurately report a secularism that tends to separate the Democrats from mainstream America.
