“Go to the home page of MSNBC and click on ‘World News.’ From there click on ‘Americas.’ Next click on the article, ‘Losing Their Religion? Catholicism in Turmoil.’ Scroll down and in the ‘Click for Related Content’ section there is an article entitled, ‘Pope Describes Touching Boys: I Went Too Far.’ Clicking on this piece takes the reader to an article about a homosexual German priest who had sex with males in the 1980s. It says absolutely nothing about the pope. Yet MSNBC paints Pope Benedict XVI as a child molester in the tease to the article.
A retraction, and a sincere apology, are in order. They should also investigate how this happened and who is responsible.”
Through pressure applied by Bill Donohue and the Catholic League, NBC backed off their sneaky tactic and apologized for the misleading story:
“NBC apologized today for an article on MSNBC’s website entitled, ‘Pope Describes Touching Boys: I Went Too Far.’ The article that readers accessed after clicking on it actually had nothing to do with the pope.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue accepted the apology today:
NBC says the attributed quote was erroneous and they have corrected the error. An apology was also extended. The apology is accepted. We hope that whoever was responsible for this outrageous post is questioned about it and that all;”>appropriate measures are taken. We look forward to hearing the outcome.”
All in a day’s work for the liberal media. How typical and predictable.
The bigots are out in full force, I see.
