MSNBC on the Pope, they wish to plead incompetence

Why do I get the feeling that if the subject of this headline was President Obama that someone would have been given his walking papers?

Go to the home page of MSNBC and click on “World News.” From there click on “Americas.” Next click on the article, “Losing Their Religion? Catholicism in Turmoil.” Scroll down and in the “Click for Related Content” section there is an article entitled, “Pope Describes Touching Boys: I Went Too Far.” Clicking on this piece takes the reader to an article about a homosexual German priest who had sex with males in the 1980s. It says absolutely nothing about the pope. Yet MSNBC paints Pope Benedict XVI as a child molester in the tease to the article.

Of course it is pure coincidence that MSNBC runs with this headline after pounding on the Pope for days. We should accept MSNBC apology.

I’m sure the explanation is simple and innocent, the person at MSNBC likely is Hungarian and was using Alexander Yalt’s phrasebook to translate

After all we have no reason to believe that MSNBC dislikes the Pope do we?
