The Catholic Herald has yet another Ordinariate piece by William Oddie, this time taking a critical view of the BBC's portrayal of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham on yesterday's Sunday program (or programme, in the traditional idiom.) Here's the opening:
Well, it was only a matter of time before the BBC (or rather, the intelligentsia of Radio 4) came out against the ordinariate, following its usual tactic of maintaining a bogus appearance of impartiality while actually setting everything up to arrive at the wished-for conclusion. Hence, Edward Stourton on this week’s Sunday programme asked one Professor Tina Beattie to comment on the new body, without actually telling his listeners that Ms Beatty represents a very particular (and extreme) point of view within the Church. This is how the interview began.
