Some of the Italian journalists "covering" the papal trip to Brazil could use a workshop on Church law and making distinctions.What are they teaching people in journalism school these days anyway?
One of the key points in the news these days rests in the distinction between excommunication and exclusion from Communion. These are not the same.
Looking at a a few stories in the Italian press we can see very different attitudes about the story and how the journalists shaped the story, for good or ill.
