Last year, more than 16 million viewers tuned into ABC to watch Peter Jenning's "Reporting: The Search for Jesus." Jennings and his network have long claimed that audiences like these emphasize the importance of religion in its reporting and specials. But in ABC's latest round of money saving moves, network television's only dedicated religion reporter, Peggy Wehmeyer didn't make the cut. Filling the void, or trying to at least, is Beliefnet.com - a website that bills itself as a "multi-media company for religion and spirituality."
