British Catholics blast Times' coverage of Church

Catholic World News - March 17, 2010

Citing work by Catholic World News editor Phil Lawler, British journalist Damian Thompson blasted the blatantly inaccurate London Times headline “Pope knew priest was paedophile but allowed him to continue with ministry.”

Thompson, an editor at The Telegraph, noted that hundred of Catholics, some of them prominent, have joined the new Facebook group “Catholics who condemn The Times (and other media’s) treatment of the Pope.” The reference to The Times was recently removed from the group’s name, leading Thompson to wonder, “Has some pressure been exerted?”
