Olasky preaches journalism through the lens of scripture, faith
Publication chart
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Marvin Olasky sits at a table on the screened-in porch of his modest home here, speaking calmly, but with conviction, about topics close to his heart: faith, freedom, and the role of journalism in America. The editor-in-chief of the evangelical Christian newsmagazine World doesn’t buy into one of American journalism’s most valued traditions -- studied objectivity in which arguments from “Side A” and “Side B” are presented as equally valid. He believes that on matters such as abortion and marriage, “the Bible is very clear, so we are not going to be even-handed in the sense of balancing of subjectivities, which is what ‘objectivity’ often came down to.”
