Cardinal raps media coverage of 'Vatileaks' scandal

Catholic World News - October 19, 2012

Cardinal Camillo Ruini criticized press coverage of the “Vatileaks” scandal during an October 18 interview on Italy’s RAI radio network.

“Very little happened in the way that newspapers presented it,” said that cardinal, the former head of the Italian bishops’ conference and vicar of Rome. He said that the impact of leaked documents was badly exaggerated.

Cardinal Ruini noted that the Vatican allowed media coverage of the trial of Paolo Gabriele in order “to give a more realistic idea” of what was actually involved in the leaks of papal documents. He said that Vatican officials have “no need to fear” legitimate press inquiries into their work.
