Reporter or activist?

Reporter or activist?

Diogenes reports on the case of Chuck Colbert, a reporter for the National Catholic Reporter, who in March 2004 attended Mass at the parish I grew up in precisely to disrupt it to protest a video on gay marriage that was to be shown.

Colbert was disavowed by NCR’s editor, who said Colbert was a freelancer who was no longer going to write for NCR because “he made the decision to cross the line between reporter and activist.” Huh. Then why is Colbert reporting for NCR on Fr. Walter Cuenin?
