A Mormon official called media coverage of the church biased and sloppy in an open letter sent yesterday to reporters covering the 2002 Winter Games. While most news reports from Salt Lake City have been fair, the letter said, others are "full of arrant nonsense and prejudice" and prove that Mormons are still as persecuted as they were when they fled to Utah in 1847. Also, the church criticized a Denver Post column mocking Mormonism and the Olympics. The piece was pulled from the paper's Web site and an apologetic column was planned for today.

She's one of the transgender community's most passionate advocates. Yet New Hope plastic surgeon Christine McGinn has an equally intense suspicion of the news media even as she relies on them to get her message heard. "There is so much ignorance out there about transgendered people," says McGinn, one of half a dozen transgender men and women profiled in Trans, a documentary screening Sunday as part of Philadelphia QFest and one of an unusually large crop of transgender films at the annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender film festival.

ISSUE | DAKOTA PIPELINE Consider the impact There's been a lack of media coverage of strong opposition and rallies nationwide and internationally to the Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Yet, the Inquirer ran a commentary with a conservative point of view ("Pipeline protests put jobs, energy security at risk," Monday). The sky will not fall if this pipeline is halted; instead, there could be an important dialogue about the environmental and social impact and a consideration of an indigenous people.

Even as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has granted interviews to major media outlets in connection with his organization's release of Hillary Clinton's emails, his fugitive status has been virtually ignored. He fled Sweden for England before authorities could interview him (Swedish law does not allow charges to be filed without such an interview). He fought extradition in England's court system, and, when he lost, he ran to the Ecuadorian embassy in London and sought political asylum.

BERNARD Hopkins should have his license pulled for saying "I would never let a white boy beat me. " He thinks his excuse that he's just trying to sell tickets means something. So what if his company CEO, trainer and best friend are white? Where are the good reverends after this blatant show of racism? Why aren't they picketing and calling for his job? Why wasn't there extensive, over-the-top media coverage? I'm not a boxing fan, but why should one side be punished for this kind of talk and not the other?

MICHELLE MALKIN, in her March 4 column, counts the stories about Danny Pearl's tragic death to make a bogus argument about media hostility toward religion. Three thousand people die in the World Trade Center, the most closely covered story in decades. Millions in Africa die anonymously of AIDS every year. Is it because the African AIDS victims were devout and the Sept. 11 victims were heathens? Malkin's methods show far more obvious biases against foreigners, non-whites and the poor.

Pretrial publicity will prevent Patrick Alexi McCarthy, a suspect in a killing at a King of Prussia motel last fall, from getting a fair trial, his lawyer said yesterday. Extensive media coverage of Anna Nicole Fowler's death dictates that McCarthy, 22, of Norristown, should be tried outside Montgomery County or that a jury be brought in from another area, said McCarthy's lawyer, Frank Genovese. The body of the 19-year-old woman was found in a Motel 6 on Oct. 6, 2004. McCarthy was charged on Oct. 20 with raping and killing Fowler before taking her ATM card, credit cards and car. Video surveillance from three cash machines showed McCarthy trying to withdraw money from or walking near the machines, police said.

Launched in February 1996, Democracy Now! was born of a unique idea: an hour-long daily syndicated public radio news show focused entirely on the presidential election. Hosted by veteran journalist Amy Goodman, the show aired on five stations and was supposed to go dark after Election Day. Twenty years have passed and Democracy Now! still airs every day. Of course, it's grown a bit: Today, it's carried by 1,400 radio and TV stations around the world and is available online at www.democracynow.org . (Locally, it's available on several stations and is also carried by DirecTV, Dish Network, Verizon Fios, and Comcast.)

Australia got lucky. Cathy Freeman got lucky, too. That's the message from here-you-see-her-now-you-don't French track star Marie-Jose Perec, who resurfaced in France long enough to contend she would have stolen Freeman's thunder had she not fled Australia a few days before the 400-meter race. "I think I would have run less than 49 seconds," she said. Freeman, of Aboriginal descent, won, unchallenged down the stretch, in 49.11. "I have never been afraid of Freeman, and I'm still not afraid of Freeman," Perec told the French sports newspaper, L'Equipe.

A Superior Court judge yesterday denied a motion to move the trial of Charles E. Reddish, who is charged with the 1991 murder of Cherry Hill resident Yeda Sharon Rosenthal. The jury-selection process is scheduled to begin Sept. 17 in state Superior Court in Camden County. In denying the motion, Judge Frank M. Lario rejected arguments from defense attorney Kevin Lewis that media coverage of Reddish, who is serving a life sentence for a different murder, has made it impossible to select an impartial jury from this area.

Amal's critique of me, you Celebs tend to stick together. But not when it comes to GOP presidential contender Donald Trump . Amal Clooney , for one, doesn't back him. The British human rights lawyer tells the BBC she's very critical of all the candidates, "perhaps more than in many other elections. " She's critical of the level of discourse, the issues, and the media coverage. "I mean, when you listen to what [Trump] . . . has been saying about building walls, about excluding Mexicans, and saying there has to be a complete shutdown on all Muslims coming in," she said.

For almost six months, the Ray Rice debate had been an argument in the media, largely among men in sports circles, over domestic violence and its proper punishment. On Tuesday, his wife had a few things of her own to say, igniting a new debate. The day before, the celebrity news site TMZ released an elevator-camera video, taken the night of Feb. 15 at Revel Casino, that showed then-Baltimore Ravens running back Rice knocking his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, unconscious with a left hook.

DOZENS of demonstrators mobilized in front of the Liberty Bell yesterday afternoon in support of the anti-government protests that have erupted in Venezuela. Protests in solidarity with the people in the South American nation have been increasing steadily since 66 people were injured in riots around the country and three were shot dead in its capital, Caracas, on Wednesday. "Crime is out of proportion, there is a food shortage and there are laws implemented by the government to restrict the media," protest organizer Emilio Buitrago, who moved to Philadelphia from Venezuela 17 years ago, said yesterday.

ON THIS NIGHT, 75 years ago, nothing happened in a little slice of New Jersey no one's ever heard of, and the story's only grown ever since. It was Oct. 30, 1938, and Orson Welles and cast members of the "Mercury Theatre on the Air" put their own twist on the H.G. Wells science-fiction classic, War of the Worlds , telling CBS radio listeners that Martians had landed on the Wilmuth Farm in the Grover's Mill section of West Windsor Township, about...

MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE there have been so many rallies lately - for Trayvon Martin, for victims of urban violence. But there was a familiar attitude among those who stood vigil for a transgender woman allegedly butchered by a john in Strawberry Mansion: The media ignore us, and when they don't, they disrespect and misrepresent us. Society views us as disposable, expendable. I didn't totally disagree. But, as I stood in the crowd listening to friends and advocates mourn Diamond Woods, I wondered: If we can't even manage to care about the deaths of people we should be able to relate to - children - what chance do people often viewed as spectacles and freaks have at getting our attention, let alone our sympathy?
