IN American journalism, the articulation of almost any idea is followed automatically by the articulation of its opposite. This formulaic objectivity isn’t especially helpful, but it beats letting the Bishop of Durham take potshots at people, as The Sunday Telegraph, The Times, and The Guardian did on the same weekend late last month. (For those who missed the articles, Dr Wright said that the Lambeth Conference was a mess, and that the consecration of Gene Robinson was an example of American unilateralism, just like the war in Iraq.)

Full article is worth reading. The British press, because of the Internet and because it was reporting more on Lambeth than the American press, was very influential among Americans who followed Lambeth in cyberspace. Church Times – Press: What I ‘learnt’ at Lambeth
