Maybe we should start having mandatory Sunday School lessons for mainstream media reporters.
CBS, clearly embarrassed to be No. 2 in Christian faith ignorance, ran a segment on CBS Sunday Morning in which Martha Teichner stated confidently that John THE BAPTIST stood at the foot of the cross with Mary. That should get some kind of honorable mention here.
After getting schooled by its commenters, CBS posted a correction.
EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this story mis-identified the possible “beloved disciple” as John the Baptist.
