Eye of the Tiber was created in the winter of September 2012 with the gallant and virtuous aim of reporting Catholic news as it happens, when it happens, and before it happens. Since the launch of our hard-hitting, critically acclaimed, and world-renowned news site, we have broken and destroyed some of the biggest news stories in the Catholic world. We were the only Catholic news agency to report that Pope Francis had picked up a midnight shift at McDonald’s to help the poor. We were the first to report that a dissident Legionary was parting his hair in the middle. And readers of our distinguished site were first to learn when the civil liberties organization American Atheists sued to remove the letter’s “G,” “O,” and “D” from the alphabet.
It is our duty as a reputable Catholic news source to cover all stories that pertain to and concern the average Catholic in the pews. Striving to be both fair and balanced, we are sometimes forced to cover stories about religious orders and Catholic leaders that we may be fond of; such is the nature of our business. But in so doing, Eye of the Tiber has become a leading source for Catholic satire to the astute, and legitimate Catholic news to the obtuse. We are proud to have recently been nominated for Best Catholic News Satire, narrowly losing out to the National Catholic Reporter, proving thus that, more trusted Catholic news sources aside, Eye of the Tiber is your most trusted Catholic news source.
