Well, This is Interesting

Episcopal Church fires two top executives for workplace misconduct

and another:

Episcopal leader cleans house, while reporters ignore that whole 'bugging' thing

The second article contained this quotation, which reminded me of something an editor of mine once said:

"I guess there is a larger question now: Is the Episcopal Church still front-page worthy, other than when it makes pronouncements that, well, echo the doctrines of The New York Times editorial page?"

What did my editor say?  He was responding to my question as to why a bishop's announcement wasn't newsworthy, so he said, "What's the headline?  'Liberal bishop from liberal church says something liberal?' That isn't news."
