Papal Quote Of The Day

"I think the media have to be very clear, very transparent, and not fall into - no offence intended - the sickness of coprophilia, that is, always wanting to cover scandals, covering nasty things, even if they are true. And since people have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia, a lot of damage can be done." -- Pope Francis, in an interview with a Belgian Catholic weekly journal. Coprophilia is the psychological term for an abnormal fascination with feces; coprophagia is defined as the consumption of feces.

The Pontiff said that the media's spreading of disinformation ("fake news") was "the greatest damage that the media can do." He added that when the media pass on slanderous, false information, they are committing a sin.  Not that anyone in our profit-driven corporate political media gives a....copro.
