A while back Pope Francis spoke with the superannuated non-note-taking atheist Communist Eugenio Scalfari, editor of La Repubblica (his name is pronounced with the accent on the 1st syllable “SCALfari”).
One of the writers at La Repubblica, Piergiorgio Odifreddi, took on Scalfari and the “fake news” that was spread over the last few years through his sloppy and biased accounts of his conversations with the Pope (including the recent confusion about Hell). HERE
Today I read that La Repubblica fired Odifreddi. HERE
They say that its not about his critique of Scalfari. Uh huh.
