Just Before Canonization, NBC Hypes John Paul II Critic Saying Many Fe

April 25th, 2014 2:38 PM
The Friday before the Catholic church would celebrate the canonization of two popes, NBC's Today hyped the "controversy" of the jubilant fans of Blessed John Paul II "drowning out dissent" from those who felt "stomped on" during his papacy.

Religion Reporter Helping Leftist Nun Write Memoir Has History of Gauz

On Friday, I noted how ostensibly objective religion reporter David Gibson of Religion News Service has been tapped by Sister Simone Campbell to co-author her memoirs.

Has CNN's integrity sunk so low that it is now using works of fiction as sources to round out its own reports? While covering the story of Fox News reporter Greg Burke moving to the Vatican's own communications team, CNN mentioned his membership in Opus Dei and referenced the organization's (quite negative) portrayal in the fictional book and movie The Da Vinci Code.

CNN Hints Pope is Guilty of Mishandling Abuse Case, Leaves Out Details

September 23rd, 2010 10:01 PM
CNN played an excerpt of its upcoming documentary "What the Pope Knew" on Thursday's Newsroom (see CNN's commercial promoting the documentary at right), and if this preview and its past coverage of the Church abuse scandal is any indication, the documentary left out key information in order to paint Benedict XVI in the worst possible light. Correspondent Gary Tuchman failed to explain…
