With November 6 looming in the future, the presidential election is heating up a bit. Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his newly-minted running mate Paul Ryan are taking on Barack Obama and Joe Biden for the White House. Skewed opinions are coming from everywhere, with the conservatives brewing up a fear-storm over at Fox News and liberals puffing up indignant outrage over at MSNBC. It's during all this nonstop partisan media coverage that you just have to ask, What would Jesus do?
Well, I wouldn't presume to mix religion and politics. But some people would, and one of those people is David Brody. Starting on August 24, the Emmy-winning journalist will be bringing ABC Family audiences 'The Brody File' a look at the presidential election through a Christian filter (here's a hint: it's gonna favor the Republicans).
For his part, Brody has "crossed the ideological spectrum" throughout his journalism career, according to ABC, with interviews with Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Hillary Clinton, and Mitt Romney. But, as the resident CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network) reporter, you can bet he skews sharply to the right. You want to know how I know that? He's a political contributor to Glenn Beck's GBTV Network. And you can tell simply by the tone of his articles that he's backing the Republican team.
The Brody File will replace The 700 Club Interactive on Friday mornings at 9:30/8:30c (though 700 Club Interactive will continue to air Monday through Thursday). The Brody File will continue airing through the presidential election in November. According to the press release, Brody's "unique political perspetive will offer viewers a birds eye view of the 2012 presidential race as well as the important issues facing faith and politics."
Will you be tuning in?
