The New York Times has always hated Catholics. From long before the New York Draft Riots, and heaped coal on Pope Pius IX by creating a Jewish antipathy for Catholics by inflating the Mortara Incident* ( A Jewish boy taken from his parents by the Papal States in the 1860's, raised as a Catholic to become an Augustinian Priest for Life). The radical New York Times competed with the Catholic Freeman's Journal of Orestes Brownson and Bishop Dagger John Hughes.
Now, Catholics are hitting back. It has been a hell of long time!
Archbishop Dolan of New York is filling the shoes of Dagger John Hughes and taking some swings at the radical Times and its salaried professional renegade Catholic who really needs a date - Mo Dowd. Crazy Aunt Mo!
"Mom! Crazy Aunt Mo just got off the bus and she's walking funny!"
Crazy Aunt Mo Dowd is a professional Catholic whiner - so oppressed and so embarrassed to have been baptized. Every family has one. Crazy Aunt Mo is all for Abortion and tells eveyone and usually gets Fully Kruezened** at family dinners and tells everyone how much she ( Yes, there's Crazy Uncles Too) resents us all, we have all made her life a misery, throws up at the Kids Table, borrows cab Fare and heads back to her apartment for a Mr. Boston swill with HBO. Unhappiness sells papers!
Nice job Bishop! Crazy Aunt Mo will cocktail it up and tell us all about it.
You put it very well, Bishop Dolan -
"She ( Crazy Aunt Mo - my editorial) digs deep into the nativist handbook to use every anti-Catholic caricature possible, from the Inquisition to the Holocaust, condoms, obsession with sex, pedophile priests, and oppression of women, all the while slashing Pope Benedict XVI for his shoes, his forced conscription -- along with every other German teenage boy -- into the German army, his outreach to former Catholics, and his recent welcome to Anglicans."
Dowd's column, which zinged the Vatican for "two inquisitions" into nuns who eschew "old-fashioned habits and convents," was only the latest Times piece to spin Dolan's skullcap.
"It is not hyperbole to call prejudice against the Catholic Church a national pastime," Dolan wrote. " 'The anti-Semitism of the left' is how [poet Peter] Viereck reads it."
Dolan noted that an Oct. 14 Times piece about child sex abuse in Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish community failed to demand what the paper had previously demanded of the Catholic Church: to release the abusers' names, roll back the state statute of limitations
Here is some stuff on the Motara Incident played out by the New York Times. The New York Times has had a great career of attempting to manufacture tension between Catholics and Jews and yet always seems to cozy up to Crown Heights Al Sharpton when he gets up an Old Timey Pogrom.
Protests were lodged by both Jewish organizations and prominent political and intellectual figures in Britain, the United States, Germany, Austria, and France. Soon the governments of these countries added to calls for Edgardo to be returned to his parents. The French Emperor Napoleon III, whose troops garrisoned Rome to protect the Pope against the Italian anti-clerical unificationists, also protested.
When a delegation of prominent Jews saw the Pope in 1859, he told them, "I couldn't care less what the world thinks." At another meeting, he brought Edgardo with him to show that the boy was happy in his care. In 1865 he said: "I had the right and the duty to do what I did for this boy, and if I had to, I would do it again." In a speech in 1871 defending his decision against his detractors, Pius said: "Of these dogs, there are too many of them at present in Rome, and we hear them howling in the streets, and they are disturbing us in all places."  
The Mortara case served to harden the already prevalent opinion among liberals and nationalists in both Italy and abroad that the rule of the Pope over a large area of central Italy was an anachronism and an affront to human rights in an "enlightened" age of liberalism and rationalism. It helped persuade opinion in both Britain and France to allow Piedmont to go to war with the Papal States in 1859 and annex most of the Pope's territories, effectively leaving him with only the city of Rome in the end. When the French garrison was withdrawn in 1870, and the Italian army assaulted the city, Rome too was annexed by the new, unified, liberal Kingdom of Italy.
