Lisa Wangsness is a poor journalist and an embarrassment to a great newspaper: The Boston Globe!

Reader comment on item: America's Desultory Religious Reporting

Dr. Pipes

I could not believe when I first read the story in the Boston Globe some two weeks ago and as a student of history one must examine the source behind the source and it did not take much to realize that the so called doctor Cader is not really a doctor (thank you St. Google!) as he lost his medical license which means that the clueless Ms Wangsness either did not check the background of her source Mr Cader or she was hoping that we readers will not check and in either case this makes her a real poor journalist as how could you trust the reliability of a doctor whose professional organization does not trust and this is why he lost his medical license?

And shame on her editor for not checking either. And to add insult to injury she became what this story is all about: a horrible biased journalist that is not a reporter any longer but she is now the center of the story which a reporter is not supposed to be

I say to Robert Spencer: Good you got some good publicity and now more Bostonians know about what happened

The woman Ms Wangsness is clueless
