Working on commission and omission

David DiCerto reviewed Mea Maxima Culpa, directed by Alex Gibney, at Christianity Today.
"Noticeably missing is Father Thomas Brundage, the former judicial vicar for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee who presided over the Murphy case and who, according to an article in The Catholic World Report, was not contacted by the filmmaker. In a response [Comment November 12, 2012 9:40 pm] to that article, Gibney dismisses Brundage as 'forgetful, mendacious or irresponsibly inaccurate' for a misstatement the priest made about a 1998 draft memo involving Murphy—but that hardly excuses the omission. (CWR writer David Pierre later addressed Gibney's response.)"
Among comments to DiCerto's post is his own, "the truth, however painful, cannot be served, ultimately, by misrepresenting it in part.
