Coverage of religion among losses of current ills

Interesting story on a Boston Globe blog from a meeting of religion reporters about how their numbers are dwindling fast, and how that is opening the door for organized religion to push its messages without filtering. Unfortunately, that's seemingly true about almost all areas of news coverage. The losers are not just news consumers, but our society itself. Journalism, and, yes, it can be objective, is needed in a democracy.
