NEW YORK, December 13, 2012, (LSN) – Last week the New York Archdiocese scored a significant victory against the Obama administration’s HHS birth control mandate—but you wouldn’t know that if you read or watch the mainstream media, according to New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan.
“Did you hear about the decision last week?” asks Cardinal Dolan in a column released today. “You probably did not, as there seems to have been virtually no mention of the decision – in favor of the archdiocese, by the way – in any local newspaper or on television.”
Dolan singled out the New York Times, pointing out that while the Grey Lady had nothing to say about the archdiocese’s victory, it “couldn’t wait to publish an editorial this past October, admonishing the bishops, when a federal judge in Missouri found for the administration and dismissed a similar case brought by a private, for-profit, mining company.”
“The Times also didn’t have much to say last week, when the appeals court temporarily blocked the bad Missouri decision the Times had gushed over,” Dolan added.
In a strongly worded judgment last week, U.S. District Court Judge Brian M. Cogan had ruled that the Archdiocese of New York’s lawsuit against the HHS mandate may proceed.
