The First Amendment Center sponsored the 2005 survey of religion news coverage in United States newspapers, undertaken by Pam Parry, APR, public relations program director at Belmont University, and 40 students in Parry’s junior cornerstone class titled “God in the News.”
Parry and the student researches revised a survey first conducted in 1999. The revised survey was mailed to newspaper editors, who were asked to complete the written survey and return it by mail. The Belmont students are listed by name in the acknowledgments of the study on the First Amendment Center Web site.
