NewsBusters Won't Admit Biden Has Catholic 'Faith'
Topic: NewsBusters

A Feb. 18 NewsBusters post on "befuddled reactions from the mainstream media" over the ashes on Vice President Joe Biden's forehead on Ash Wednesday carried the curious headline, "Media Confused By Biden's Ashes, Omits His Catholic Heterodoxy."

Balan seems to not want to grant the fact that Biden is, in fact, a Catholic. Indeed, he's offended that "ABC News's Karen Travers omitted the past controversy over his support for legalized abortion, and portrayed him as a devout Catholic."

While Balan referenced Ted Turner's long-ago statement on the subject -- which Balan delcared "the most egregious statements made on the topic of Ash Wednesday" -- he was silent about Dennis Miller's equally egregious, if not more so, statement on Fox News that the ashes on Biden's forehead show where President Obama "puts his smokes out."
