I’m not sure if this is in the right forum, so please feel free to move it if necessary.
I stumbled across some articles on the National Catholic Reporter and was shocked by the articles and then even more by the reader comments.
While trying to look up information on the NC Reporter I came across a list of awards that it received from the Catholic Press Association in June 2010. Apparently the Reporter has been “honored with the Catholic Press Association’s award for ‘general excellence’” for 11 straight years. Based on the few articles that I saw on the Reporter’s site I could not believe that anybody would honor the stuff they write.
So what is the deal with the Catholic Press Association (www.catholicpress.org)? I tried finding other threads on the forums before posting this one but couldn’t find anything. Are they to be trusted at all? They have a link to the USCCB on their website, but their granting awards to the NC Reporter just puts a bad taste in my mouth.
