>Benedict Gets the Quick Mainstream Media Spin


The returns are already in on Benedict XVI as far as the mainstream media is concerned.

The politically correct spin is that Benedict XVI is “conservative,” “ultra-conservative,” “arch conservative,” “known to be quite conservative,” “an unswerving hardliner,” an “enforcer” dedicated “to keeping the Church in the Middle Ages,” and “God’s rottweiler.”

Read “conservative” here as someone who doesn’t think the truth is whatever anyone fancies.

However, in using the epithet “God’s rottweiler,” the mainstream anchors, who probably never read Francis Thompson’s famous poem “The Hound of Heaven,” may ironically be on to something.
