This is the book that the Boston Globe does not want you to read.
SINS OF THE PRESS blows the lid off the Boston Globe's 2002 Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting about sex abuse and the Catholic Church.
While the Globe would want you believe that its paper's reporting was a carefully impartial chronicle of abuse and cover-ups by Church officials, this fast-paced, eye-opening, and meticulously researched book uncovers something entirely different.
Using actual images of headlines, photos, and editorial cartoons from the Globe archives, Sins of the Press exposes:
• How the Globe has routinely celebrated child molesters in its pages over the years;
• How the Globe frequently promoted an author who supported incest between fathers and daughters;
• Extensive and undeniable proof that the Globe's reporting was the culmination of a relentless, decades-long attack against the Catholic Church;
• How the Globe has deliberately dismissed and mitigated vile abuse and cover-ups in other institutions;
• How the Globe flagrantly misled its readers about the Church's response to abuse complaints;
• How the Globe was flat-out erroneous in its reporting;
• How the Globe facilitated the foundation of the notorious pedophile group NAMBLA;
and much more.
Sins of the Press will obliterate everything you thought about the Boston Globe and its reporting about Catholic sex abuse.
