A reporter decides to attack another for saying VP Mike Pence is a sexist pig because he refuses to dine alone with any woman who is not his wife. Why, is for you to decide. I don’t care, nor should you.
However, aside from the idiocy that all media indulges themselves in, if a reporter is going to offer any credibility for themselves in what they write, beginning a news story with an exaggeration simply sets the stage for readers with a brain to only conclude, the rest of the story is an exaggeration. (Logic tells us there are few readers with a brain.)
The article begins this way: “Vice President Mike Pence is a man of deeply held Christian convictions.”
We are instructed by the Scriptures to not stand in judgement over any man, however, I assure you, in all confidence, that great men like Noah and Moses, Paul, John, etc. were men of “deeply held Christian convictions,” that is those convictions set forth by Yehwah, the Almighty. It is therefore safe to say that calling Mike Pence, who is some kind of self-proclaimed reformed/deformed Catholic, a “man of deeply held Christian conviction” is a stretch and an exaggeration.
Stick to the truth of the story please. If you need to embellish the story with false claims, it isn’t worth the ink it’s written with.
