Unfortunately for McBride, a real journalist reported in today's MSJ:
On March 25, 2002, Hjalmer Heikkinen's car was struck by a car driven by Margaret Morse, a member of Christ King Parish in Wauwatosa. She was transporting a statue of the Virgin Mary to a family in a different parish as part of a program conducted by the Christ King Legion of Mary, the parish's branch of a service organization. (emphasis mine)
In other words, the driver that caused the accident was a volunteer for the church's social organization, not someone that just happened to be at the church for an unrelated program.
One would think that McBride, being the world-renowned journalist, would have understood the importance of getting the facts to a story. Again, the question needs to be asked: She teaches journalism? Why?
