Msgr. William J. Lynn, who was convicted in kangaroo court proceedings in 2012 for "endangering the welfare of a child," is finally a free man after Pennsylvania's Supreme Court upheld the December 2015 reversal of his conviction by the state's Superior Court after Lynn had already spent nearly three years in prison.
The decision means that it will now be up to Seth Williams, the buffoonish, publicity-hungry district attorney, whether to retry Lynn.
And while the mainstream media widely and gleefully reported Lynn's historic conviction with breathless headlines and hysterics, these same outlets have now gone silent after the appeals courts have reversed Lynn's conviction for the second time! For example:
• Laurie Goodstein and the New York Times, who happily reported Lynn's original conviction on its front page, have naturally not reported a single syllable about Lynn's new victory.
• The Philadelphia's own Inquirer relegated the news to the B section.
• Google News lists (as of this post) only four news outlets reporting the big news.
Msgr. Lynn might now be asking himself the question famously posed in 1987 by former U.S. Secretary of Labor Ray Donovan, who was acquitted after a similar ideologically driven witch hunt: "Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?"
