The #Unexpectedly Chronicles: MSM finds Pope "little sisters" visit Unnewsworthy

Yes­ter­day when the Pope made remarks on Cli­mate Change the Net­works trum­peted it from the high­est heights.

How­ever this was not the only news­wor­thy thing he did:

Given the Oba­macare man­date law­suit and the President’s state­ment to the Pope con­cern­ing reli­gious free­dom, the fact that his gov­ern­ment is suing them to force them to vio­late their faith is ironic, so the Pope’s visit would seem quite newsworthy.

ABC found it much more news­wor­thy than the oth­ers. They decided it was worth two whole sentences!

NOTED: Yes­ter­day, Pope Fran­cis made an off-​the-​record visit to the Lit­tle Sis­ters of the Poor to show his sup­port for their fight against the con­tra­cep­tion man­date in the Afford­able Care Act, ABC’s MERED­ITH MCGRAW notes. In late August, the Denver-​based 10th Cir­cuit Court of Appeals granted the Lit­tle Sis­ters of the Poor a short-​term shel­ter from the mandate.

That is con­sid­er­ably less cov­er­age that Twitchy man­aged to give it by 9:51 PM last night.

Given that the idea of the Pope mak­ing the repub­li­cans uncom­fort­able has been a con­stant theme of media cov­er­age you would think that this sym­bolic move of sup­port for Nuns being sued by the US gov­ern­ment might be a tad more newsworthy.

One would almost think the MSM had an agenda when it comes to their cov­er­age of the Pope and this par­tic­u­lar Pon­tif­i­cal visit doesn’t fit it.

Update: Some­how Aleteia found time to cover it

The meet­ing, which was not on the pope’s publicly-​released sched­ule of events, was held just hours after the pon­tiff met with Pres­i­dent Obama at the White House. Father Lom­bardi did not say where, but he noted that the Lit­tle Sis­ters have a con­vent near the Basil­ica of the National Shrine of the Immac­u­late Con­cep­tion, where Pope Fran­cis cel­e­brated a late after­noon Mass. It is likely that he vis­ited the order just after cel­e­brat­ing the liturgy.

If ONLY the msm had access to the same resources as Aleteia does.

Yesterday when the Pope made remarks on Climate Change the Networks trumpeted it from the highest heights.

However this was not the only newsworthy thing he did:

Given the Obamacare mandate lawsuit and the President’s statement to the Pope concerning religious freedom, the fact that his government is suing them to force them to violate their faith is ironic, so the Pope’s visit would seem quite newsworthy.

-NOTED: Yesterday, Pope Francis made an off-the-record visit to the Little Sisters of the Poor to show his support for their fight against the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act, ABC’s MEREDITH MCGRAW notes. In late August, the Denver-based 10th Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Little Sisters of the Poor a short-term shelter from the mandate.

That is considerably less coverage that Twitchy managed to give it by 9:51 PM last night.

Given that the idea of the Pope making the republicans uncomfortable has been a constant theme of media coverage you would think that this symbolic move of support for Nuns being sued by the US government might be a tad more newsworthy.

One would almost think the MSM had an agenda when it comes to their coverage of the Pope and this particular Pontifical visit doesn’t fit it.

Update: Somehow Aleteia found time to cover it

The meeting, which was not on the pope’s publicly-released schedule of events, was held just hours after the pontiff met with President Obama at the White House. Father Lombardi did not say where, but he noted that the Little Sisters have a convent near the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, where Pope Francis celebrated a late afternoon Mass. It is likely that he visited the order just after celebrating the liturgy.

If ONLY the msm had access to the same resources as Aleteia does.
