Good God Episode 49: Peggy Wehmeyer

Fake news. A biased media. It seems this is all we hear about when discussing the role of media these days. 

Today’s guest on Good God was America’s first religion reporter, Peggy Wehmeyer. She and George talk about the role of the media, how to keep objectivity, and the importance of reporting on religion to help us understand one another better. 

George sums it up when he says to Peggy: “What you were trying to do in the mainstream media is to drive us toward the center, when so many forces are pushing us toward the edges.”
