NY Times and religious profiling

October 10, 2014 --

By Catholic League for Religious & Civil Rights

Bill Donohue accuses the New York Times of religious profiling:

The New York Times has a story today about the Diocese of Harrisburg’s decision to ban high school boys from competing against girls in school wrestling. This is the second day in a row that the Times has covered this story, and there is nothing new of any substance in today’s piece.

Today’s news story on the Pennsylvania Catholic high school wrestling policy merited 978 words. By contrast, today’s New York Times ran a story on Oslo withdrawing from a bid to host the 2022 winter Olympics that totaled 406 words. A story on Derek Jeter starting his own web forum was a mere 599 words. Even the Major League Baseball playoff game between the Pirates and Giants didn’t out do the Catholic high school story—it was 897 words. If we add yesterday’s story on the wrestling policy to today’s (it was 401 words), the total figure is 1,379.
