John Edwards' Bloggers Called Anti-Catholic'

"Called" is wrong--they either are or aren't--whatever happened to letting the facts dictate a story.

From the Spokesman Review:

Two bloggers hired recently by Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards were criticized Tuesday by a Catholic group for posts they had written elsewhere on the Internet.
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, demanded that Edwards fire Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan.
"John Edwards is a decent man who has had his campaign tarnished by two anti-Catholic, vulgar, trash-talking bigots," Donohue wrote in a statement.
The Edwards campaign declined to comment. McEwan and Marcotte did not respond to e-mails requesting a response.
