How the news is distorted

Filed under: The past that is still with us,The world today — John Maass @ 8:10 am

Here is a great example of how the news is distorted by the press in order to advance their own polemical politics.

The Pope has recently decreed that priests are allowed to say the Latin Mass without first getting special permission from their bishops.  Bear in mind that the pre-Vatican II Latin Mass was very popular and still is, for its beauty, tradition and continuity. It is also known as the Tridentine Mass. 

But how does the Washington Post report on this so-called “conservative” development?  Here are the headlines of two stories they ran, and you can see for yourself:

Bishop Mourns Latin Decree, Jews Want Clarity

and

Latin Mass Headache for Catholic Parishes.

The model of objectivity!
