ABC "news" - Hope? Not so much

There was much discussion about who prayed at the Inauguration and of course Bp. Gene Robinson was ignored... But ABC fixed all that by bring attention to him:

The piece purports to be about religion and the inauguration and is introduced as being about hope. And then it turns to a conservative church that talks about the "avowed homosexual." Of course they covered the fact that this gave great hope to many others... NOT. And closed with a Psalm quote that was apparently chosen by the "reporter."

It reminded me of when I went to GC in 2003 and talked with Kyle about the news coverage he was seeing at home. It bore very little resemblance to what was actually going on.

News doesn't really seem to care much about hope, unless they can spin it to have a down side.
