Dionne and Brian Healy, senior producer for CBS News in Washington who also is Catholic, said while there is anti- Catholicism in the media, it's not generally intentional or a matter of pol- icy, so much as individual bi- since 1940. Boundaries between dioce- ses are established by county lines in the United States, and county lines are general- ly used as a basis for forming deaneries or other regional divisions within dioceses. James Youniss, one of three Catholic University re- searchers coordinating the database project, said the re- searchers will provide a de- mographic profile free to each ases creeping into someone's work. Many reporters have a problem with covering reli- gion in general because they're uncomfortable with it, Healy said. Also, the church is depict- ed differently depending upon the topic. "The church's image in America is determined by the current 'hot' issues," Healy said.

At the same time, he said, it will help historians and other scholars at the universi- ty studying Catholicism in the United States. One of the weaknesses in research on the U.S. church, he said, has been lack of good "quantita- tive data."

But attempting to have the church's position represented fairly isn't always easy, par- ticularly on issues related to abortion, said Mercy Sister Joy Clough, director of public information for the Archdio- cese of Chicago, and Father Kenneth J. Doyle, director of media relations for the U.S. Catholic Conference. "It's like swimming up- stream," according to Father Doyle.
