    The media can say whatever they want to say. A media that has practically ignored Obama and his failures to no end, has no credibility to say anything bad about a saint. Shame on the descendants of the rabble who once stood at the foot of the cross and shouted "Crucify Him!" How quickly the media forgets that 3 million people were present at the funeral of one of the greatest popes in the history of the Church!
