As mentioned in the article, "As an institution, the Church has the responsibility to publicly and clearly articulate its official teachings. In turn, reporters can help inform the public by accurately reporting on these doctrines. But in doing so journalists should be aware of some common pitfalls.

Unfortunately, as many members attest, this kind of journalism paints a distorted picture of the Church and continues to confuse the public."
