Catholic Answers' misadvised attack on 'Radical Traditionalism'

Peter Crenshaw, "Open Season on ‘Radical Traditionalism’" (The Remnant, June 10, 2013): Using a term coined by the anti-Catholic Southern Poverty Law Center, why do Catholic Answers radio personalities excoriate their fellow Catholics and become water carriers for the Left?

The attack was on a two-hour radio show on May 31st featuring Patrick Coffin and Tim Staples. From Crenshaw's account, the whole thing was a tapestry of misinformation, though I doubt most listeners would have had the wherewithal to judge that.
