My friend Julia Duin, former religion reporter for the Houston Chronicle and the Washington Times has a great article on the Get Religion website. Check it out.
I love the title:
Shocker! Archbishop Cordileone attempts to defend Catholic catechism in his schools
It's great to see a reporter treating the archbishop fairly. Julia is not a Catholic, but she believes in what reporting used to be -- reporting not editorializing. When she covers a story she does it with integrity giving both sides of the story and not using loaded language and spin to sway the reader's opinion. If you drop by, leave a comment. I imagine blogs measure the effectiveness of their reporters by the number of hits and comments they get. Give Julia's post a boost. She deserves it!
