Is "Commonweal" orthodox?

Is Commonweal magazine considered a legitimate magazine by the Catholic Church or is it unorthodox in its views of the Catholic faith? :confused:

I have not read Commonweal, so I am unable to offer an opinion. All I can say is that with, the exception of the Vatican’s own newspaper (L’Osservatore Romano), the Church does not take responsibility for the orthodoxy or heterodoxy of any publication. All one can do is to read it for oneself and assess the publication’s editorial slant.
