Influential Jesuit journal: Times, other major newspapers biased against Pope
May 01, 2009
An article in the May 2 edition of the influential Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica has denounced major Western newspapers for propagating anti-Catholic hostility. “Catholics in Italy and Europe know very well that a preconceived hostility exists against Church doctrine, especially in the field of ethics,” writes Father Giandomenico Mucci. The media, “which is the voice of powerful forces and interests, is an excellent propagator of this hostility.” There is a widespread campaign, he adds, “which, at a universal level, tends to discredit the Catholic Church: from the (London) Times to The New York Times and The Washington Post, from Le Monde... to the Italian press.”
