Vatican to become 'Fair and Balanced'



Some breaking news from the Vatican today, via Reuters:


The Vatican has hired an American journalist from the Fox News Network and member of the conservative Catholic group Opus Dei to help improve its relations with the media, a senior Church source said on Saturday.


Greg Burke, Fox's Rome-based roving correspondent for Europe and the Middle East, will become a "senior communications adviser" to the Secretariat of State, the key department in the Vatican's central bureaucracy.


Burke, 52, a native of St Louis Missouri, has been working for Fox for 10 years. Before that he worked for Time magazine in Rome. He has also written several books, one about an Italian soccer team.


The source said the Vatican was expected to announce the appointment soon.

I've suspected for some time that the Fox News channel may be part of the EWTN network.

All this talk is foreign to me...do you care to explain all the slang to a simple woman who doesn't understand this type of talk?


What is a reuter and what is an onion.  I do sense that you are being sarcastic?  but this language again, is foreign and I feel really ignorant.

Yes, I was being sarcastic with the rhetorical question - related to the story headline about the Vatican becoming "Fair and Balanced".  Many believe that it is an oxymoron to link the Vatican with "fair and balanced". Given that, the thread topic implies perhaps the story wasn't real, but one of the parodies The Onion is well known for.  I'm sorry the names confused you though.


Reuters is a major international news service. You can read about it by clicking on this link.


The Onion is a satirical online 'newspaper" - it is not real. You can read about it by clicking on this second link.


You can link to The Onion itself, by clicking on this third link.


However, the story is real and was reported by Reuters and many other news agencies.

We are all on a journey and for some of us it has led here.
