It is amazing how bad the reporting in larger liberal secular newspapers and services can be when it comes to Catholic issues. Consider this abysmally deficient blurb from WaPo by someone whose name suggests he ought to be better informed, one Francis X. Rocca.
My emphases and comments.
Schismatics discuss Vatican demands, but future unclear
By Francis X. Rocca| Religion News Service, Published: October 10
VATICAN CITY — Leaders of an ultra-traditionalist group [What makes them “ultra-traditionalist”. Will he go on to explain the why of the “ultra” or will he merely leave it steaming on the floor of his article?] that’s in schism with the Roman Catholic Church [Five minutes of research on the SSPX and schism would perhaps have modified this sentence. Or does he have an agenda of his own?] met to consider the Vatican’s conditions for reconciliation, but failed to announce a decision or say when they would do so. [“Failed”? Why the word “failed”? They didn’t promise to release anything definitive. So, what’s the writer’s game?]
In my opinion, this goes beyond reporting into editorializing under the guise of reporting.
In any event, you can read the rest there.
