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's reporting was only the culmination of a relentless, decades-long campaign against the Catholic Church for ideological reasons;* How the Globe flagrantly misled its readers about the Church's response to abuse complaints;* How the Globe has dismissed abuse and cover-ups in other institutions;* 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;* How the Globe was flat-out erroneous in its reporting;* How the Globe facilitated the foundation of the notorious gay pedophile group NAMBLA;* The truth about Cardinal Law and his response to cases of abusive priests;

and much more.
SINS OF THE PRESS will obliterate everything you thought about the Boston Globe and its reporting about Catholic sex abuse.

Review:

"This book is a real eye-opener. In short, punchy chapters, the author proves over and over again the bias and hypocrisy of the Boston Globe in its moral crusade against the Catholic Church ... A brave report." (full review below) - Ralph Cipriano, BigTrial.net
 
"Catholic author David F. Pierre, Jr. has written a splendid little book ... SINS OF THE PRESS is thoroughly researched, meticulously documented, well organized, hard hitting, and eminently readable. Although short (about 170 pages), it is an impressive piece of scholarship and a valuable contribution to American Catholic history." - C.J. Doyle, Catholic Action League of Massachusetts
