Some video from Australia.
I find in this piece from World News Australia to be a bit polemical.
More of the same. This video has the Pope answering a question on the airplane about the sexual abuse situation in Australia. Again, this is a hostile new piece.
Commentor "theologian" Paul Collins is an ex-priest who oganized a petition for women’s ordination.
The guy who asked the question on the airplane.
Coverage from SKY TG24 – a good piece, in Italian.
Meanwhile, our intrepid Andrea Tornielli of Il Giornale is travelling in the papal bubble in Australia. He and the other jounrliasts, as I mentioned yesterday, had technical problems on the plane… curiously timed problems. (My translation and emphases):
Papal Flight, Alitalia debacle
It is 2 in the morning in Italy and we have just landed in Darwin for a techincal stop over of an hour and a half. It is full day here. I am writing you two lines to let you know why you won’t find in Il Giornale and the other daily news outlets articles signed by their correspondents on the Papal Flight. The telephones on board, in fact, after having worked for the first two hours, went completely dead. So, the Pope’s press conference, during which he spoke at 11, was transmitted in bits and pieces by some agenices, while we journalists of the dailies and TV, who attempted to transmit our articles a little while later, have passed the entire day glued to the telephones that weren’t working, saying that the satellite connection was down. Our journalists have paid the [Alitalia] for a super-expensive ticket, and in the end we would have done better had we stayed on the ground. I’ll end this now, wishing you a good night. Tomorrow during the day I will pass on the words of Benedict XVI.
