Unpacking the pagan rosary
I was pleased to see that myself.  In terms of reportage, the article was pretty good (I winced a bit, but that was about "Catholic" Persephone-worhippers - well, one - and no fault of the reporter's) but not really remarkable; I think GR was on the lookout for some Pagan reportage after Jason Pitzl-Waters of The Wild Hunt called them on the lack of it the other day.

I don't expect to see much critiquing of Paganism-related journalism there, since the amount of reporting done on Paganism is a wee drop in the bucket as compared to the total amount of religious journalism (not just that we're a minority, but also that we're not engaged in acrimonious schism, or running for President - quiet folks, we, minding out own business  Cheesy ).  But I'd like to see a bit more, because a lot of the low-quality reporting of Pagan-related subjects we see isn't just because the press doesn't get our religions, they're classic examples of how the press doesn't get religion, period - which, of course, is GR's raison d'etre.
