Media aversion



Peter Akinola is afraid of Julia Duin of The Washington Times.

Since his disastrous interview with The NewYork Times last year, in which he described recoiling the only time he knowingly shook a gay person’s hand, Akinola has not spoken to the Western media. The only exception is a conversation he had with Ruth Gledhill of the Times of London, whose assistant is the daughter of Chris Sugden, leader of the conservative lobbying group Anglican Mainstream.

Duin asks:

What is it about us journalists that Archbishop Akinola is so afraid of? Does he not trust himself with us? Or don’t his subordinates trust him?
