Guess What's Missing from this Week's Catholic Standard?

Well, the Catholic Standard came out this week and I was unable to get it on Friday's like normal (bad, Melvin, bad).

And after looking through it there was not one, but two things missing:

Yep, you guessed it, there was still no story on the investigation of Msgr. Rossi at the Basilica.  

Not a peep, not a word. Silence.  

It has been over 2.5 months since the investigation was announced by the Diocese of Scranton.  However, not a word from the Archdiocese of Washington.

Wonder if they have interviewed George Neumayr.  Probably not!

It will be a whitewash and at most, just a slap on the wrist.

Now, there is something else missing from the Catholic Standard:  No mention of Fr. James Martin, SJ, speaking at Holy Trinity in DC on Oct. 20th.   There was no mention of it in the story (Oct. 17th edition) on the 225th anniversary of Holy Trinity.   Nor is there any mention of it in this week's edition.  (Got a screen shot of the bulletin, just in case.)

I mean, I though everyone loved Fr. James!  +Gregory has welcomed him when he was in Atlanta.  +Francis has a one-on-one convo with him.  

But, this is typical of the Catholic Standard.  Do I think that the editor, Mark Zimmerman, is behind this.  Nope, this comes from the top.
