This isn’t the first time.
Seems to me this issue is not that dissimilar to the priest abuse scandals, since bishops have been raked over the coals for what they allegedly knew about but didn’t do anything. But where the latter was front page news for months on end, this story is studiously ignored by most press. The other day I even emailed the Wikipedia entry to a TV news station in Spokane while they were discussing controversy over parental notification in California. They apparently didn’t pursue it.
