hostility towards religion

So when I got up this morning and started reading the local news paper (The Charlotte Observer), the following article kind of jumped out at me:

“Network television in America is moderately tolerant of spirituality and openly hostile to organized religion, according to a new study by a conservative media watchdog group.”

Okay just for giggles, I want to see if you notice how the writer immediately and very subtly dismisses the idea that network television is hostile to organized religion. How we use words is everything. Words are thoughts, and we can’t think without them.

Obviously, no study undertaken by a “conservative media watchdog group” can be taken seriously. Because we all know that those stupid conservative Christians see assaults on their faith everywhere…

Don’t they?
