Synopsis

Unsecular Media MAKING NEWS OF RELIGION IN AMERICA by Mark Silk

Writing in the New York Times Magazine, Max Frankel characterized Unsecular Media as a book that leaves you thinking about the saintly role that religion has acquired in our allegedly irreligious media.Mark Silk's book is the first to offer a comprehensive description and analysis of how American news media cover religion.

Reviews

A fresh interpretation of religious news coverage... Religion ordinarily gets an easy ride, says Silk, because the American public by and large favors religiousness. The press either reflects that favorable view or, with an eye to the market, caters to it... Silk is onto something. He is even likely to have a long-term if subtle effect on religious coverage in the secular press. -- Martin Marty, Christian Century
