  1. Is it just me or are Edward Terry's articles on rather balanced and free of the "scare quotes" and other rhetorical devices that TLC typically uses when talking about 'the other side'? I was impressed and thought they were a fairly good account of who said what (although I experienced Deb Peevey's talk quite a bit less militaristically than one might gather based on her choice of readings and metaphors).

    I had hoped to talk more with Edward while he was there since it was kind of an interesting dynamic having a "reporter" at the conference. I suppose I'm wondering if this is a sign of some shift in TLC, just a personal style of this particular reporter, or is there the proverbial Other Shoe that will drop?

  2. He has just posted two more articles since I posted this. We have become so used to the mixing of reporting with editorializing over there that a balanced article is a surprise.

    Agreed on Deb Peevey's talk. The title of the article (placed by the editors) made it sound more military-like than the article as well.

    Of your three options, I tend to think this guy is a good reporter.

  3. Heh. I agree with Brian. I was quite surprised that the first Layman headline wasn't, "Apostates and Heretics Gather at Sodomite Conference." lol

    They must be losing their touch.
