Is NPR doing too many stories on Catholicism?

An NPR listener complained that “when anything is mentioned on NPR concerning religion, it seems that the only religion mentioned is the Catholic religion.” NPR ombudsman Edward Schumacher-Matos examined the coverage and, with the help of librarian Elizabeth Allin, found that Islam was most-often mentioned on the network over the last 12 months. The findings:

Islam: 148
Christianity: 63
Judaism: 55
Catholicism: 39
Buddhism: 14
Mormonism: 12
Protestant: 6
Amish: 2
Hinduism: 1
