Jerome Socolovsky knows a thing or two about good reporting. But it is his knowledge and appreciation of religion that makes him an asset at his role as the Editor-in-Chief of Religion News Service (RNS). In speaking to members of the Washington chapter of the Religion Communicators Council on May 18, Socolovsky stressed the continued challenge and importance of reporting religious news in the “misinformed marketplace of religions” that is America. A lack of context and depth, says Socolovsky, has led to widespread ignorance of matters of faith. RNS works to shed light on these reporting gaps by supplying unbiased reports on religious issues from around the country, and world.
