It's only taken seven years, but a member of the mainstream media is finally asking "what are they thinking?"That would be the formerly "respectable" Howard Kurtz, the Columbia J-school grad who wrote for the Washington Post and worked for CNN and the Daily Beast, before he fell from grace and landed at Fox News, where he writes: What on earth is the FCC thinking?The last thing we need is the government mucking around with news content.The title of this Big Brother-ish effort by the … [Read more...]

The Post Takes a Page at Patheos

jesuit post on patheos

That would be The Jesuit Post, the rambunctious, thoughtful, fun and enlightening site staffed by about 50 young Jesuits, three of whom I am very pleased to announce, have taken up residence here at Patheos.Some of you may be asking why a growing, jumping site like TJP would offshoot over here, or why Patheos would take them on -- it seems to fly in the face of the notion of competitive markets, doesn't it?Well, that's kind of the point. If the goal of Catholic blogging is to serve … [Read more...]

Unless you're deeply reading into the Catholic blogosphere, it's unlikely you've ever come across Tod Worner before, but I'm pretty sure that once you begin, you'll be quick to bookmark his blog, A Catholic Thinker, which I am very happy to be bringing into the mix, over here.Why am I so happy?

Rome-bound, against all odds…

Lots of excited talk this weekend about the Blogger-meetup scheduled in Rome scheduled for May 2 -- the day after the beatification of Pope John Paul II -- and instigated by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications. We might call this gathering of international bloggers a "baby step" toward helping disparate voices to get to know each other less as "contingents" and more as hale-fellows-well-met. It will also, hopefully, help to coalesce blogdom's diverse, multi-focused alternative … [Read more...]

A Golden Voice with a Word in Season

Every time I talk to Pat Gohn speak, I find myself marveling at the resonance of her lovely alto. She has one of those voices that belongs behind a microphone or a podium, and that -- coupled with her ability to reason smoothly and articulately -- makes her podcasts at Among Women such soothing, thoughtful programs.She's got a voice like rich honey.This week's podcast is not quite so soothing, however. Pat is mellifluous as ever but her guest is a bit on the hyper side and she can't shut … [Read more...]
