L'Osservatore editor sees a 'media campaign' against the Pope

Catholic World News - April 13, 2010

In an exchange with reporters at the Foreign Press Club in Rome, Gian Maria Vian, the editor of L'Osservatore Romano, defended the Vatican response to the sex-abuse crisis. “Honestly, the Holy See is doing everything possible to resolve this horrible scandal,” Vian argued. The editor of the Vatican's official newspaper said that the Pope has the full support of the Roman Curia. "There aren't any unfaithful servants," he said.

Vian dismissed as "ridiculous" any idea that the current worldwide storm of criticism directed at Pope Benedict XVI is a conspiracy. But he did see a "media campaign" against the Pontiff.
