Kudos to Jesuit Father Tom Reese and Catholic League president Bill Donohue for their civil discussion of the Notre Dame controversy last night on Anderson Cooper's show. Their discussion was informative (especially for those who haven't been following every step of this increasingly tiresome debate) and provocative without resorting to gotcha soundbites. A model, perhaps, of how to engage intrachurch issues in the broader media. After the mandatory ad, the clip runs about six minutes.
