How ridiculous are things getting in the wake of The Francis Effect™?
Here is a headline from Reuters. I really hope that the otherwise bright Phil Pullella didn’t impose this:
Pope, in nod to conservatives, calls abortion ‘horrific’
What a shocker! The Pope is against abortion!
But wait. There’s more. Someone at Reuters figured out that this was absurd. They revised the headline to:
“Pope, after conservatives’ criticism, calls abortion “horrific”
Hang on. Isn’t this worse?
