    Posted on May 21, 2007 | by James A. Smith Sr. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (BP)--Mike Huckabee, Republican presidential candidate and former governor of Arkansas, has withdrawn from the New Baptist Covenant Celebration planned for next January in Atlanta in protest of former President Jimmy Carter's labeling of the Bush administration's foreign policy as "the worst in history."

    Huckabee, who told the Florida Baptist Witness of his decision to drop out of the Baptist gathering in an exclusive telephone interview May 21, also said the roster of speakers "does seem to tilt left," which gave him concern about participating. Huckabee called Carter's comments an "unprecedented personal attack."

    ironic that BPNews.net is ready, willing, and able to report bad things about dissenting groups but slow to report the actions of those dissenting groups which might gain them momentum.

    Notice that the SBC "news source" (I use that term loosely) never reported about the meeting between dissenting groups and Carter.

    Yellow journalism at its worst.

    edited to add: Governor Huckabee is a good man.

    yellow journalism

    Inflammatory, irresponsible reporting by newspapers. The phrase arose during the 1890s, when some American newspapers, particularly those run by William Randolph Hearst, worked to incite hatred of Spain, thereby contributing to the start of the Spanish-American War. Newspapers that practice yellow journalism are called yellow press.



    I would say that your accusation fails to met the definition. But your post is more in line with it.
