Comparison chopping

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 05, 2003

A quick review:

* Howell Raines supervises the reporters of the New York Times. One reporter misbehaves, Raines is charged with inadequate supervision, a public furor arises, and Raines is forced to resign.

" Bishop O'Brien supervises the clergy of the Phoenix diocese. Many clerics misbehave, O'Brien is charged with inadequate supervision if not active complicity, a public furor arises, and O'Brien is informed that the Vatican will not accept his resignation.

The Vatican allegedly fear that a bishop's resignation could raise the perception that the Church can be influenced by public opinion. Funny: the Times didn't seem much worried by that possibility.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
