"On Point with Tom Ashbrook"
Prof. Scott Appleby, a critic of the New York Times' clergy abuse coverage, asks Bill Keller: Could you run a story on the profound demoralization of the clergy and religious? The executive editor responds: "My wife returned from mass last Sunday moved by the pastor's Easter sermon, in which he described how shaken he has been by the latest round of scandal. The next day I asked our national desk to look into the impact of the crisis on the morale of priests."
