Typical mega media outlets sometimes do not understand religion, especially catholics. It’s getting better, or at the very least it is changing. For example, media outlets are bringing in and relying more and more on guest commentators to give them an accurate reading.
For example, Fr. Thomas Rosica (CEO of Sailt+Light Television Network has been brought in on discussions on CNN, CBC, NBC, etc). There are a growing number of really well run, and well done, Catholic News sites out there.
