He admits, we deny

Our Archdiocesan weekly informs subscribers
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee responded to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s article regarding the former archbishop’s shredding of copies of sex abuse reports in a Dec. 4 e-mail addressed to pastors, parish directors and diocesan priests.

The Journal Sentinel article was picked up by local TV and radio, so I wonder why there was no response directed to local media. The email says only copies were shredded, not originals. See Better shred than read
The information comes from a 1993 deposition in which Archbishop Weakland admitted destroying copies of the reports in his office.

If the Catholic Herald was convinced there's no problem, I would have suggested "disclosed" rather than "admitted".
