Every day, all across America, people of faith do great things in their communities. They do these works because they love their God, family, community, church, and nation. Seldom, if ever, do these activities get attention from the local media, let alone from the national press.

The answer has nothing to do with the preacher and everything to do with the aims and goals of the legacy media. If you've followed their lead you've fallen for their game.
