Edit: John Allen will never report the real etiologies, goals and malignant personalities behind the sexual abuse scandal.
BOSTON — The Boston Globe has said it will no longer be running its Catholic news site CruxNow.com as of April 1. Vatican analyst and associate Crux editor John L. Allen Jr. says he hopes to continue the site with other partners.
The announcement comes after less than two years of operation for the Catholic site. The Boston Globe cited financial reasons for the decision. It said that Allen is “exploring the possibility of continuing it in some modified form, absent any contribution from the Globe.”
Allen, a longtime Vatican reporter who is widely respected in his field, told CNA that he and Crux Vatican correspondent Ines San Martin will continue the site.
