The Revealer: A new ejournal
published by New York University's Center for Religion and Media
and the Pew Charitable Trusts, with
Jeff Sharlet as its primary editor (Jeff was one of the founders
of Killing the Buddha). The
mainstay is a daily critique of press coverage of religion; the site
also features essays, reports, and
forums. The mandate is to address
the press, and, if possible, help improve the generally dismal
coverage given religion by primarily US news organizations. [Ed:
We think The Revealer is one of the best new websites in years.]
