Colluders . . . Missing . . . Anglo . . . Pedestals

I am curious about what the media knew, and when they knew it, regarding the clerical abuse scandals in this country.

Today, the media go after the Church and politicians, but where on earth were the likes of RTE and the others when these outrages were being perpetrated?

I would compare Cardinal Sean Brady and Fr Brendan Smyth to a couple of bank robbers, Smyth the bank robber and Brady the getaway driver. Brady's job is to get Smyth away safely so that he can carry out more robberies.
