File this under the 'no crap' column.

"In the United States, our battles over abortion, family life, same-sex marriage, and other sensitive issues have led to ferocious public smears and legal threats not only against Catholics, but also against Mormons, evangelicals, and other religious believers…the mass media tend to cover these disputed issues with a combination of ignorance, laziness, and bias against traditional Christian belief…We make a very serious mistake if we rely on media like the New York Times, Newsweek, CNN, or MSNBC for reliable news about religion. These news media simply don’t provide trustworthy information about religious faith …These are secular operations focused on making a profit…They have very little sympathy for the Catholic faith, and quite a lot of aggressive skepticism toward any religious community that claims to preach and teach God’s truth."

Which media forced the Bishops to meet in Dallas and do something about sex abuse....the Globe and the NY Times....or the Catholic press? Rhetorical question. We all know the answer.

Nice of you to notice all those years I spent in Zen but since you have not studied Zen techniques to develop intuitive thinking I will try to make it simple for you. Yes, the MSM is good at reporting on the crimes and misdemeanors of the Church and as such the MSM approaches everything the Church says and does as a crime.
