Since the end of 2015, Chuck Colson has written five bylined op-eds for CNSNews.com, the most recent being on Aug. 5. CNS' bio for Colson tells us that he "founded BreakPoint in 1991, a daily radio broadcast that provides a Christian perspective on today’s news and trends via radio, interactive media, and print"; it doesn't mention that he's a convicted felon from the Watergate scandal.
Another thing neither the bio nor the columns mention: Colson died in 2012.
While the columns do note that they are reprints, and one shares a byline with Eric Metaxas, who does the foiceover for the Breakpoint daily radio show, they do not note why they are reprints: Colson isn't around to offer original material.
CNS regularly publishes Breakpoint-affiliated writers like Metaxas and John Stonestreet, so it's not surprising that it would dig into the Colson archives. But let's not pretend the guy is still alive and cranking out the content -- dead men should get no bylines.
Just an odd bit of dishonesty that raises questions about CNS' actual commitment to journalism.
