An open secret


I can tell you experiences I’ve had with members of the press corps that have come up to me quietly, almost whispering in my ear, and say, “I’m a believer. Don’t tell anybody. I don’t want to be outed in this country.” It is that bad. And I’m sure you’ve had lots of folks you’ve talked to here in the press corps who’ll tell you that’s not the case, who’ll tell you that the press corps here and the media here is representative of a wide swath of different viewpoints. And that faith is important to them. It’s baloney. It’s absolute baloney. The reporting does not reflect it.
