If they didn't do this on purpose, they are completely incompetent as reporters. 3.) They quoted Sutton and didn't give any other perspective or context except for his words, which are obviously not true. 4.) I'll concede that they technically only directly attributed Sutton's opinions instead of "a bunch of people" (I was thinking of a number of others who weighed in on this story in other articles that I read while I was looking up the link to this BP article). However, the article itself, in the first paragraph, falsely portrayed Sizemore's statements as the crux of the controversy that had plagued the convention: "For conservatives, it was a moment of truth. The 20-year battle for the spiritual heart of the Southern Baptist Convention had just been exposed in six words." Quote: Sizemore clearly revealed his agenda in his phone interview with Baptist Press: Since Baptist Press does not know how to fairly, accurately and honestly present something that was witnessed by tens of thousands of people, how can I trust them to accurately report what Sizemore said in a private phone interview? Furthermore, Sizemore did NOT assert that the "Bible is just a book" even in the Baptist Press version of things. Quote: You are just wrong. Yet I somehow have the facts on my side. Will you join me in condemning Sutton's remarks as being defamatory? Quote: However I believe if you would like to carry this any further a thread in the General Baptist section is more appropriate. Why should I? You don't seem interested or concerned that Baptist Press is printing propaganda, distortions and falsehoods. I'll let this thread be about Obama since I have already made the case that Baptist Press has a record of not being trustworthy.
