News media all but ignored religion in election


From a new Pew Research study:

[J]ust 1% of the campaign coverage by major news outlets (including broadcast and cable television, radio, newspaper front pages and the most popular news websites) focused on the religion of the candidates or the role of religion in the presidential election. Only 6% of the election-related stories in major news outlets contained any reference to religion.

Newsworthy given the obsession some of the talking heads had with President Obama's non-existent Muslim faith and Mitt Romney's belonging to the Mormon church.
