June 25 - Supposed "Emergency" Meeting of the Roman Curia

Loggats, I agree with you.  Michael Voris is like Trad Catholicisms own special Yellow Journalist.

That the priest who made the accusations appears to have been lying does not equal Voris making things up, it means the sources he had were given false information.  Its not like he went out and made up a bunch of stuff or reported some wild rumor that no one else was looking into without checking with sources to be sure that what he was hearing was in fact going on.  There are many news reports which get put out which later turn out to be inaccurate.  That does not equal malice on the part of the reporters, or incompetence for that matter.  In this case, it seems obvious that Voris' sources were well placed and accurately reflected the discussions taking place at the time.  It was not until a couple of days later that things came out suggesting that the initial reports were false. 

I agree that the report seems to be inaccurate.  What I fail to see is how a priest who lied to the police, who then shared the story with Voris, is his fault.

It is not Voris’s fault that his source lied. The fault with Voris is that Voris front paged the whole thing with full gusto and bravado.  That is not “spot-on” as you put it, but extremely sloppy.  Voris must have waited a whole whopping 3 seconds before he decided to splash this thing over the internet.  Spot-on is what every other reputable journalist did and verify the source 1st and refuse to print once they realized that the story was rubbish.  Voris was anything but “spot-on”.

Here is his initial report.  In it, I see no gusto or bravado.

Commenting on this thread was pointless, and leading to scandal on my part suggesting the Church or the Holy Father did something wrong just from looking at the article or the headline, or the media contained in the thread.

I apologize to the Pope, the Church, the Bishops, Priests, Clergy, Cardinals, the individuals mentioned in the article/media,for any sins of Gossip, Detraction, Calumny, and/or Slander caused by this post and others in the thread or Fisheaters.com as well as any other sins committed such as scandal , and any sins others fell or might fall into by reading them as a result.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
