An Indicator

On June 23, StarNewsOnline published Romney sparks interest in Mormon religion. And you know what? They did a pretty good job. The factual inaccuracies reported as a quote from someone against Mormonism were corrected. None of the facts reported were incorrect (as often happens). They included the core belief of those belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is to follow Jesus Christ.

Great work, guys! I hope the rest of media follows your example. On the whole, I've not seen egregious reporting errors on the subject in the last few weeks, which tells me that the LDS Department of Public Affairs is on the ball, responding to and correcting flawed coverage, leading to greater accuracy overall as more time passes. Way to do your homework, reporters!
