The papers are printed, come off the presses, are transported around the city by trucks. The headline on the front page Church Allowed Abuse by Priest for Years. Matt takes a copy of the paper and drops it on the doorstep of the house where the molesting priest lives. Through Jack Dunn, Mike is able to make an offer to Law to defend himself in the Globe in a full page, unedited response. But later, he visits Marty and Ben to tell them that Law turned the offer down and the Archdiocese spokeswoman says they don’t even want to know what the questions are. This gives them enough of a quote for their story The church had no interest in knowing what the Globes questions would be. Ben wants to hire extra staff to man the phones at reception, remembering the protests from the last story about a molesting priest. Robby mentions Jim confirming all the priests they suspected as being involved. He has been rattled by Tim’s comment that the Globe should have caught it sooner.
In Florida, Mike gets a call from Robby who tells him that Garabedian refiled the docs. He is then told Marty has been put back on the story because of this; Mike flies back to Boston that afternoon. Mike is in court watching the case the Globe is filing against the church to unseal documents. The church’s lawyer accuses them of just wanting to sell papers and Mr. Garabedian just wants to help his cases. Outside, Garabedian tells Mike that a priest discovered Geoghan was molesting boys in 1962 but when he told the Bishop, he was threatened into silence. Then, 30 years later, when he read about Geoghan molesting hundreds of boys, he felt guilty and called Garabedian, who asked the priest to come in and sit for a deposition on having given the church a heads up. But when he showed up, he was with the same lawyer attacking the Globe in court that day. Now the priest states he has a foggy memory and negates his claim that he told his superiors. A year earlier, Garabedian found an article from a local paper, revealing the priest finally went to the press to tell them about being silenced by officials in the 1960’s.
Meanwhile, Mike meets with one of Garabedian’s clients at his office, Patrick. He is a handsome, masculine father who explains that his dad killed himself and his mom was schizophrenic. Joe was sent to a group for kids from troubled families by a nun, led by the priest who raped him. Patrick was taken in by the priest after he lost his father. The priest took him to go get ice cream, which excited him. But on the drive home, he started touching Patrick through his pants which scared him but he couldn’t do anything because it was a priest. He mentions that he never even touched his ice cream; it just melted down his arm. Joe told him his priest knew he was gay and showed him a mobile over a baby’s crib with different words like homosexual, transsexual, and bisexual on it. Being attracted to men and being forced into sex at an early age really affected him. His mother found out about it years later and complained about the incident to the cardinal who responded by moving the priest to another parish.
Holed up in a cluttered basement office, the Spotlight team exhibit the behavior of people who spend more time with one another than they do with their own families. Sacha goes to church every Sunday with her grandmother, a ritual she finds increasingly painful. Matty has a couple of kids, and a big magnet on his refrigerator emblazoned with an American flag and “Remember 9/11” on it. At the Spotlight office the next day, Robby is told that Sweeney ruled in favor of the Globe to unseal the documents. The church has filed an appeal but the trial court is almost always upheld in manners like this. The documents will probably be released in mid-January, around the time Geoghan’s trial begins. Ben and the Globes editor want to make their success against the Catholic Church a big story, focusing on a first amendment victory, but Robby doesn’t want to alert the Herald of the story. Mike and Robby now tell Marty and Ben how some of the documents have already become public due to Garabedian slipping them into a public motion; these documents prove Law knew about the molestations in the 80s. Ben is upset that they didn’t release the story but Robby tells him that the church covering up molestation has been going on for decades, even before Law, and the court covered it up.
The directories show where every priest is in a given year — in one directory, Geoghan is listed as being on sick leave. They check the ’91 directory for the year another priest was accused of molestation. They realize it’s an official designation by the church when someone is being moved after being caught molesting kids. Upstairs, they look through the directories and see “emergency response” and “sick leave” listed for all the molesting priests they know about. Robby and Sacha meet with Saviano and wonder about his credibility. He points out that he’s being smeared for speaking out against the Catholic Church and complains that they never took him seriously before. They mention they have a new editor taking the story seriously and that Robby himself is now involved and he wasn’t before. Saviano is convinced and decides to connect them with some of the survivors. Robby and Mike join Ben at a baseball game with Ben Bradlee and a reporter.
They learn through Richard Sipe, a former priest who worked to rehabilitate pedophile priests, that his findings suggest that there are approximately 90 abusive priests in Boston (6% of priests). Through their research, the team develops a list of 87 names and begin to find victims to back up their suspicions. In fact, The Globe’s investigation came at the dawn of the Internet era and Rezendes said the team embraced the new medium, putting the church documents online in 2002, which wasn’t standard procedure at the time. But no one can dispute the Web’s effect on journalism, especially stories that take time to organize and publish. Pfeiffer has the key, literally, to the old office, one floor below the newsroom, where the team researched and wrote the stories that rocked Boston and beyond, starting on Jan. 6, 2002. “Church allowed abuse by priest for years,” the headline on the front page of The Globe reads. It was one of the first stories to “go viral.” In fact, Robinson said his team got calls from victims in Australia the same day that story came out, at a time when the Internet hadn’t yet completely changed media. Tune created a series of video employee spotlights from several individuals on a specific team to provide a wider scope of who the candidate would be working with.
The news article turned the spotlight on the city’s financial problems. Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1979. With his wife’s disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent. Held captive for 7 years in an enclosed space, a woman and her young son finally gain their freedom, allowing the boy to experience the outside world for the first time. The story of King George VI, his impromptu ascension to the throne of the British Empire in 1936, and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch overcome his stammer. The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.

Later, Cardinal Law is on TV, giving a speech about praying for the nation. Ben orders the Spotlight team to stop their story so they can focus on 9/11 — the only story that could derail them from their larger investigation. Mike is sent away to Florida to investigate the flight school that trained the pilot of the first plane that crashed into the World Trade Center. He calls Garabedian and begs him not to refile the documents until he returns. Once he does, they’ll be public record and another newspaper can break the story without all of the information they’ve uncovered. The entire group begins to investigate policemen who were involved in the arresting of the priests and how the church covered it up with bribes and/or intimidation (including the cop on duty in the film’s opener). Back at the office, Matt asks Robby if he knows of a Father Talbot at BC High.
Luckily, the boat spotlight products reviewed in this post all come with warranty offers. It is crucial to think through the battery lifespan of your searchlight as well, and how instantly the distinct settings drain the battery. The conventional incandescent bulbs flashlights that are set on high settings drain more rapidly as compared to LED lights that are set on low setting. Most spotlights for boats specifically those manufactured by prominent brands or manufacturers are designed to be waterproof. However, there are some claims that other versions are not fully waterproof but more of weather resistant. Thus, it is a must to ensure if the spotlight you’re purchasing is completely waterproof or not.
