NBC Apologizes for MSNBC’s Hit on Pope

NBC apologized today for an article on MSNBC’s website entitled, “Pope Describes Touching Boys: I Went Too Far.” The article that readers accessed after clicking on it actually had nothing to do with the pope.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue accepted the apology today:

NBC says the attributed quote was erroneous and they have corrected the error. An apology was also extended. The apology is accepted. We hope that whoever was responsible for this outrageous post is questioned about it and that appropriate measures are taken. We look forward to hearing the outcome.

    We have to pray and pray and pray for Our Holy Father and for Christ’s Church…surely Pope Benedict is holding in his body in a special and profound way this Holy Week the sufferings and humiliations of Christ Himself…beware, though, those who have done this to the Vicar of Christ and to His Church.
