Assuming all you said is true, I don't see how either. The part that bothers me about this whole thing is that NO priests weren't afforded the same treatment by some of the very people that are coming to the rescue for the SSPX. I recall seeing callings of public hangings (who knows how literal they meant that) without even having all the information and names were most certainly used in those situations. 

I do agree that trads have had a sorta "gotcha" mentality about the bad priests outside of their circles. That's also not a catholic attitude.

I don't think that's ever been my approach, and if I ever gave that impression, I would happily call myself terribly wrong and a sinner for such an attitude.

That said, there certainly are very different situation where the corruption of clergymen permitted evils, and here I can understand a degree of publicity to solve these, since there is no other process that would prevent the continued corruption and abuse, but publicity must be the absolute last solution, because it is then a question of double effect.

There is the good effect of stopping severe corruption and abuse which is destroying many lives, with the unintended bad effect of destroying a few reputation. If there is no other way and the good effect significantly outweighs the evil there could be a moral argument for publicizing evil details.

The problem today, however, is that we think we have a right to all of this information, as if as soon as the parish priest is accused, credible or not, we are owed all of the allegations and get to judge him ourselves, rather than that the police, religious superiors, or other authority are informed and conduct an investigation and trial to determine guilt or innocence.

That attitude is wrong whether it's NO folks or traddies.
