OUT OF TOUCH:
One of the several reasons why the mainstream media have consistently underestimated the significance of the Trinity/Wright/Pfleger story is that, to a considerable degree, conventional reporters and editors tend to agree with Rev. Wright's critique of America. When Wright said, "God damn America," reporters thought he'd gone a little too far but didn't necessarily disagree with the underlying sentiment.
Could this contribute, in any part, to shrinking circulations, ratings, and payrolls in the industry?
