The Info List - Catholic News Service

Catholic News Service (CNS) is an American news agency covering the Roman Catholic
Roman Catholic
Church. CNS was established in 1920 as the National Catholic Welfare Council (NCWC) Press Department.[1] In the 1960s it became the National Catholic News Service, and dropped "National" from its name in 1986 to indicate its intention to provide worldwide coverage.[2][3] The news agency labels itself as the primary source of national and world news that appears in the U.S. Catholic press. It is editorially independent and a financially self-sustaining division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. CNS is based in Washington, D.C.[4][5] It has a documentary service called Origins, which "publishes texts from the Vatican, pope, bishops, Congress, Senate, Supreme Court and church leaders around the world".[6][7] From 2004 to 2016 the Catholic News Service was headed by its director and editor-in-chief, Tony Spence. Spence was removed in April 2016 after receiving criticism from some conservative Catholics about posts he made on Twitter
in support of LGBT
rights.[8][9] See also[edit]
