I’m not Catholic, but I’m also not particularly hostile to modern Catholicism, so I’m not very invested either way in the question of who is ultimately responsible for the Catholic church’s molestation scandal. However, I am very invested in the idea that the media ought to tell the truth.
But the MSNBC headline “Pope Describes Touching Boys: I Went Too Far” is an outright lie. (NBC has apologized.) I guess that’s MSNBC’s job: making other dishonest media look good by comparison.
