Meet the Press excludes atheist viewpoints

Susan Jacoby laments that "both atheism and secularism are still largely excluded from public dialogue about the proper role of religion in American politics." She points out that NBC's Tim Russert Meet the Press appears to have a "No Atheists (Still) Need Apply" policy when selecting people to discuss issues concerning the relationship between religion and politics.
