Catholic League president Bill Donohue made the following observation:
In all but one of these ten stories, readers have an opportunity to comment. Guess which one it chose to put a gag order on?
It shows that the Catholic League is getting to them at the Star when even silly stories about light snow are allowed to garner commentary, but they will not permit anyone to comment on Judy Thomas’ latest hit job on the Catholic Church. Quite frankly, they don’t want an honest debate at the Star and that is why they choose to censor its critics.
