Christian Century Parrots the New York Times, Word for Word
clear

The Christian Century, the house organ for mainline Protestantism in the U.S., published a whitewash of the Muslim Brotherhood that borrows heavily from The New York Times. And we're not just talking tone and substance, but in one instance, Christian Century's writer borrows language directly from the Gray Lady's coverage of Yusuf Qaradawi's recent appearence in Tahrir Square.

See for yourself.

In its coverage of Qaradawi's triumphant return to Egypt, The New York Times reported "On Friday, he struck themes of democracy and pluralism, long hallmarks of his writing and preaching."

In its coverage of Qaradawi's triumphant return to Egypt, Christian Century's correspondent writes, "In his sermon al-Qaradawi struck themes of democracy and pluralism, long hallmarks of his writing and preaching."

Readers who study the Christian Century article closely will find other echoes of The New York Times article.

Just another example of how the Gray Lady is able to determine how other publications in the U.S. cover stories.

Qaradawi on Muslims and Jews ...

and the writers at the Christian Century are more likely to find this of interest, and a little less easy to suppress - but they will: Qaradawi on the conquest of Rome & Christendom

And they might be a tad concerned about this - but only for a few seconds; in their subconscious racism  they don't expect  a higher level of humanity or morality  from an arab muslim: Qaradawi on stoning of homosexuals.
