But one of the recommendations sticks out:
The committee also recommended that the paper "increase our coverage of religion in America."The implicit criticism of the paper's religion coverage is valid--and not just about The Times. Knowledgeable, careful coverage of religion is rare across the entire elite media.

The issue's worth picking up if you come across it.
