TheChristian worldview isindistinct opposition withthe widely-heldsecular,humanisticand liberalworldview ofmost members of the mainstream media. Study after study confirms this. This too oftenresults in unfairtreatment of Christians and of their ideas by the media. So whatshould Christians do? How can they get fair hearingfrom thefourth estate which purports to be objective andunbiased but inmany case isnot?  Should theyjustwrite off the media and retreat fromthediscourse of the public square? 

Ken Matthews, the afternoon talk show host atWHP 580AMradio, has some distinct and strongly held ideas about how Christian conservativesshould deal with themedia.  He will discuss howthey can bestinteract andinfluence it.  Ken will entertain questions after hispresentation.
