Animus Against the Catholic Faith

The Polish Bishops have criticized the media for it's involvement airing "incomplete historical records" in their accusations against Archbishop Stanislaw Wielgus which forced him to resign his post. Now I dont know all the facts about the incident and frankly I'm not interested in defending him per se. I just wonder how fair the media is really being in the situation.

I think the Polish Bishops were probably right in saying:

"public attacks on Church leaders were motivated by an animus against the Catholic faith"
That is not to say the accusations couldnt have been true or at least partly true, but it seems like an example, to me of the growing animosity towards Christianity in general but specifically Catholicism.

One thing that must be galling for those who have to endure the inquisition of the Polish press is that the media themselves have to date avoided the kind of scrutiny on their collective history that they are dishing on others. And one has to believe that there are a few skeletons in their closets that they probably don't want to have see the light of day.
