Liberal media love new Jesus book 'Zealot', fail to mention author is Muslim
by John S. Dickerson
Reza Aslan, author of the new book, "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth" has been interviewed on a host of media outlets in the last week. Riding a publicity wave, the book has surged to #2 on Amazon's list.
Media reports have introduced Aslan as a "religion scholar" but have failed to mention that he is a devout Muslim.
His book is not a historian's report on Jesus. It is an educated Muslim's opinion about Jesus -- yet the book is being peddled as objective history on national TV and radio.
