30: Fake vs. Real News from “the Vatican” with Edward Pentin

Fake vs. Real News from “the Vatican” with Edward Pentin

The mainstream media love to quote “Vatican sources,” or “the Vatican,” or “the Holy See today said…” What is “the Vatican” and who speaks for it?

I sat down with, to my mind, the best Vaticanista journalist writing today, Edward Pentin, the British-born Rome correspondent for The National Catholic Register, and author of The Rigging of a Vatican Synod: An Investigation into Alleged Manipulation at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family.

We cover a multitude of bases of interest to news junkies, especially the kind who pay attention to things papal. If you’ve ever scratched your head over the latest allegedly official Vatican pronouncement, or tried to understand what Pope Francis just said (or, more frequently, is alleged to have said), don’t miss this interview.
