The Advertiser has been accused of protecting the Catholic Church during molestation charges brought against priests in the mid-1980s.[4] Later, in 2014, it gave a prominent op-ed to William Donahue of the Catholic League defending the protection of accused priests by the Church,[5] a piece that has been criticized as containing substantial inaccuracies by one of the lawyers who had defended the Church in the 1980s.[6]
