Damage Control

Evidently James Dobson felt the sting of his comments and the arrogant clarification of his spokesman. Today, the damage control party was summoned. Read this article to see what I mean.

I find their choice of blaming the media interesting. Not that the media doesn't deserve it, but it is hard to mess up the quote that Dobson's first clarifier gave. Let me share that beauty with you again.

"In a follow-up phone conversation, Focus on the Family spokesman Gary Schneeberger stood by Dobson's claim. He said that, while Dobson didn't believe Thompson to be a member of a non-Christian faith, Dobson nevertheless "has never known Thompson to be a committed Christian—someone who talks openly about his faith."

"We use that word—Christian—to refer to people who are evangelical Christians," Schneeberger added. "Dr. Dobson wasn't expressing a personal opinion about his reaction to a Thompson candidacy; he was trying to 'read the tea leaves' about such a possibility.""

Yeah. I can see hot the media got that one wrong.
