.- Chris Korzen, Executive Director of Catholics United, told CNA in an e-mail last Friday that his group is getting ready to launch a news organization of its own.

CNA had contacted Korzen to confirm whether or not the organization Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (CACG) had gone out of business. Korzen refused to answer any questions about the status of CACG, claiming that CNA has not made clear "what your real motivations are" in asking questions about Catholics United and CACG.

Nevertheless, in his e-mail, Korzen revealed that "Catholics United is moving into the news business."

Korzen did not say when the news business will be launched or how it will be financed, but noted that one of the tasks of the new entity will be "reporting on the activities of CNA and EWTN."

On July 16, Catholics United committed $500,000 to support Catholic Democrats who voted for the health care reform bill; in particular, John Boccieri (OH-16), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-03), Steve Driehaus (OH-01) and Tom Perriello (VA-05.) Perriello, a founder of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, is a freshman congressman whose election was highly praised by Korzen. After two years of questionable voting on the life issues, Perriello is at risk of loosing his seat to a Republican contender.

Whether the news business will be part of the effort to get key Catholic Democrats re-elected in November, has not been yet clarified. "More to follow on that front," Korzen said in his response to CNA.
