SECULAR MEDIA WATCH….Newsweek interviewed Jerry Falwell about the Liberty University debate team recently and made a wee transcription error:

Correction: In the original version of this report, NEWSWEEK misquoted Falwell as referring to “assault ministry.” In fact, Falwell was referring to “a salt ministry”?a reference to Matthew 5:13, where Jesus says “Ye are the salt of the earth.” We regret the error.

That’s some good bulletin board material for the Brent Bozell crowd. I guess Newsweek’s copy desk needs to bone up on its Bible.
