Disgusting. Memphis Reporter Mocks Mitt Romney’s Mormonism (Video)

It begins. A Memphis reporter mocked Mitt Romney’s Mormonism in a recent man on the street segment.
Nice.

Contentions reported:

Even with polls showing there’s an anti-Mormon bias among voters — especially Democrats, more than a quarter of whom say they wouldn’t vote for a Mormon — I hadn’t given the issue much thought. But this video of a Memphis Fox affiliate ridiculing Mitt Romney about his religion is a real wake-up call (h/t Ben Smith). The whole news segment appears to be about Mormonism and the 2012 election, but skip ahead to the 3:20 mark for the worst of it.

Poking fun at religion is one thing, but skewering peoples’ religious beliefs during a news analysis segment is pretty outrageous. Imagine if a reporter had instead been mocking some of the stranger aspects of Judaism, Christianity or Islam?
