Will Fox News Report That Catholic Bishops Support Union Protesters???

Reported by Priscilla - February 28, 2011 -

When it comes to reporting on issues near and dear to conservative Catholics, such as school vouchers and the evils of abortion, Fox "News" is always available. Their only clergy person, whose task is to discuss religious issues, is a Catholic priest, Father Jonathan Morris. Roger Ailes is cozy with the arch conservative Catholic Ave Maria University. Although not a Catholic, Ailes attends weekly Mass with his Catholic wife. He says he has a good relationship with the priest and bishop and supports the Church. At times, Fox News seems to be the Vatican's Newsroom rather than "America's." So inquiring minds want to know if Fox News will report that "The U.S. Catholic bishops on Thursday (Feb. 24) threw their moral weight behind the pro-union protesters in Wisconsin, saying the rights of workers do not abate in difficult economic times." Will Bishop Steven Blaire, of Stockton CA, be invited on to Fox to say that "The debates over worker representation and collective bargaining are not simply matters of ideology or power but involve principles of justice, participation and how workers can have a voice in the workplace and economy?" Will the good Fox Catholics,(Doocy, Kilmeade, Hannity, O'Reilly) who are denegrating the unions at every turn, tell their Catholic fans that Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki said "hard times do not nullify the moral obligation each of us has to respect the legitimate rights of workers?" Will Fr. Morris tell his Fox flock that the present pope is and his predecessor, on the road to sainthood, was a supporter of labor unions? If Fox were truly "fair & balanced," this would be mentioned. I'm not holding my breath...
