Giving Scandal

It is sad to see a Catholic newspaper go down the drain. To quote from Stream:
One can grant that, for all their vitriol against conservatives, Fisher and Shea have also criticized the far Left.

What cannot be denied, however, is that Shea and Fisher use vulgar and insulting language online, often directed toward pro-life conservative Catholics, which at some point must prove embarrassing to the National Catholic Register. As Fisher once publicly stated in her own style — almost as if daring those who publish her work to try and stop her disrespectful behavior:
