Michael Voris of the Vortex nails this right on the head with L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican's own newspaper. Not only did it deliberately disobey Vatican instructions by releasing snippets from the Pope's new book, but it has made brainless claims such as the Simpsons (that's a cartoon, folks!) being Catholic and praising Michael Jackson and the Beatles.
Actually, there's quite a list of Catholic mainstream media that needs some cleaning up. Certainly the Catholic News Service and the National Catholic Reporter have some progressives spewing forth nonsense. Sadly, many of the archdiocesan newspapers suffer the same maladies. To the extent that they are directly controlled by their respective chanceries, the staff of those newspapers may have reduced culpability - but not completely eliminated. I speak of those publications that insist on praising pro-abortion Catholic bigwigs and being utterly silent about doctrinal matters such as contraception, etc. Yes, the Catholic Standard is included in that mix!
The statements above, and this Vortex video, make achingly plain why alternative sources for Catholic news are needed - such as this blog and those listed on the right tool bar and the Vortex itself. Click here if you can't see embedded video.
