Dave Pierre is one of the country’s leading observers of the media’s coverage of the Catholic Church abuse narrative. Reviewers praised his previous book, Double Standard: Abuse Scandals and the Attack on the Catholic Church, as "essential reading," "a landmark book," and "a great service to the Church." Dave is the creator and author of TheMediaReport.com and is a contributing writer to NewsBusters.org, the popular media-bias blog of the Media Research Center.
Dave lives with his wife and family in Massachusetts.
He cites specific cases of priests by name in the U.S., uncovering the truth.
It reminds me of the way journalists are supposed to be; the author has obviously done his research and carefully cites all of his sources.
