The current issue of the Columbia Journalism Review has a revealing story about the alternative universe of faith-based news that evangelical Christians have created.
This alternative universe has not grown up over night. It has been growing for more than thirty years. It is one of the biggest reasons why so many evangelical Christians have no grasp of reality on matters related to church/state issues, WMD's, and other political issues. FOX news directly competes for the attention of these viewers and the rest of the mainstream media have followed suit. That is one of the reasons why newscasting has slanted so far to the right.
Fortunately, the internet provides a lot of unfiltered and uncensored information. If you know where to look, it is possible to learn a lot more about what is happening in the real world than ever before. Most evangelicals, however, are blind to these sources. Even when they see them on the internet, the information doesn't fit their frame of reference and they refuse to accept its veracity. As Lakoff says, "Frames trump facts."
Some day, I trust, the faith-based scales will fall from their eyes and facts will begin to inform frames.
