The Suppository's Cheek A Little Hard To Swallow...
...sorry, couldn't resist the play on words.
At the risk of giving more free publicity to the dreadful rag, I'd just like to point out that they have had the gall to cry foul over Fr. Tim's fisk of their nasty little piece.
Apparently, it infringes copyright.
And then, they have the nerve to refuse to publish a letter condemning their article, a letter, moreover, from James MacMillan, a composer who has previously contributed several articles, but considers their latest piece possibly to be actionable.
So, not much chance of Fr. Tim being allowed a right of reply in the paper itself... not that he needs it. He just put up a legally compliant version...
As Fr. Z has pointed out, WDTPRS has a daily readership greater than the circulation of The Bitter Pill.
