Dan Levin, a New York Times reporter, put out a blast on Twitter asking for personal stories for a piece he’s writing about a campaign to “#ExposeChristianSchools,” a new social media tirade that's taken off in the wake of recent “news” that for the past 12 years, Second Lady Karen Pence has been teaching art at a private D.C. school that doesn't accept homosexual behavior in keeping with their Christian faith.

Levin posted on Twitter Thursday:


And it's pretty safe to say, people weren't having it.


As of Friday morning, Levin’s tweet had garnered more than 8,500 responses compared with only 1,700 “likes,” a phenomenon commonly referred to on Twitter as a “ratio” that indicates a tweet isn’t being very well received.

Now, to be fair, Levin didn’t necessarily say flat-out that he's planning to write negatively about the social media campaign or Christian schools in general. However, given the New York Times’ less-than-flattering coverage of Ms. Pence’s volunteer activities -- and Levin's suggestively-worded request for personal accounts -- it’s fair to assume a heavily biased approach is forthcoming.
