The AP reads Mah Rabu!

After an Associated Press article about the Conservative movement (but touching on all the movements) got held up for ridicule on this blog (as well as a workshop at the NHC Summer Institute and one at the NHC Chesapeake Retreat), the AP finally appears to have done its homework (as did the Times before it) about issues of framing:

Conservative Judaism positions itself as a middle path between Orthodoxy's strict traditionalism and Reform's liberal approach to religious law. [emphasis added]

They've figured out that there's a difference between reporting the Conservative movement's founding myth as an important piece of its self-identity (like saying that Christians believe that Jesus was resurrected) and reporting it as objective fact. Yasher koach!
