While reading an interesting article by John Allen over at the National Catholic Reporter, I noticed a large banner at the top asking for donations to keep independent Catholic journalism alive.
As an extra trust boost, they quote some quality Catholic sources praising their site. These include the New York Times, the Huffington Post, the Nation and Salon.
If I was an orthodox Catholic publication soliciting funds from like-minded Catholics I would have endorsements from orthodox Catholic publications and people. Obviously, the NCR thinks its readers put their trust in something else.
