Catholic Archbishop of Philly Hammers American Liberal Media Elite

Speaking before 10,000 young people at the Madrid-hosted Catholic World Youth Day gathering, the Archbishop of Philadelphia H.E. Charles Chaput stated that CNN, MSNBC, Newsweek, and the New York Times, do not "provide trustworthy information about religious faith".

In defense of all Believers, Chaput stated that "In the United States, our battles over abortion, family life, same-sex 'marriage,' and other sensitive issues have led to ferocious public smears and legal threats not only against Catholics, but also against Mormons, evangelicals, and other religious believers."

What if Chaput had been more nuanced. What if he thanked the Boston Globe and the NY Times for forcing the hierarchy to actually act on sexual abuse in Dallas while the Catholic press did little to protect children. Then he could have gone on to state that the Catholic press was better in reporting dogmatic and canonical procedural nuances than the NY Times. In other words what if he sought to tell young people the whole truth instead of a black and white version about reporting....Catholic and secular.

bill bannon, those questions you raised are fair enough. Here's another one: What if The New York Times hadn't descended into almost-total depravity???
