Catholic Church fixer tells of his role in covering up clerical sex abuse

Why on earth is this not getting more press coverage? This man is speaking from the inside of the catholic church about his role, quite actually his job, of systematically covering up the abuse of young children. His former job is what is known as a "fixer".
From the Freethinker:

Describing himself as a “company man” – a “soldier” who had to protect the institution of the Church above all else – the Minnesota monk said he would be parachuted into a parish in the aftermath of allegations of sexual abuse. His job was to right the situation. And quickly, he became adept at making scandals go away.
 Audio of the interview is available here.
