ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER GETS THE MESSAGE
Yesterday, the Catholic League protested the blog site of the Orange County Register which showed the silhouette of a priest in a Q & A section on sexual abuse. Bill Donohue, the league’s president, is pleased with the outcome:
Thanks to our members who pounded the newspaper with e-mails, the president and publisher of the Orange County Register, Terry Horne, released a letter of apology to complainants. “Singling out one group, especially in such a recognizable way, was unfair and inappropriate.” He ended his letter by saying, “We hope you will forgive the lapse in judgment. And I hope you will accept my personal apology.”
On the blog site, yesterday’s news release of the Catholic League is posted. The logo of the Catholic League is placed at the top.
We accept the apology. Case closed.
