ABC News responds

Jan 26, 2004  •  Post A Comment

A spokesman for ABC News provided the following response: “Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci” is a serious and balanced exploration of controversial questions raised by the best-selling novel “The Da Vinci Code.” With millions of readers asking these questions themselves, it seemed logical to investigate whether there were any facts to support the claims made in the book. In producing both “Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci” and our previous program on a religious topic, “The Search for Jesus,” ABC News reached out to experts from across the spectrum and included not only scholars who describe themselves as liberal or progressive, but also those who are deeply religious evangelical Christians. ABC News will continue to report on topics of religion and do so in a fair and responsible manner.
