Thank you very much guys I don't get to the ball last batch of the day now which a -- subject the biased bash the Pope.
Pope Benedict made his final speech to the masses in the Vatican -- and today saying goodbye and saying he is retiring.
Not for his own good before what he says.
Is that good of the Catholic Church Judy Miller joining us.
Via Skype for this by -- what where is the bias here Judy I'm not quite getting this form.
A lot of people I after agreeing to not -- that there was just an awful lot of coverage.
Which -- -- by the way supported by eight pew poll which said -- between 2007.
Apollo was at the center opera house 13 of all religion stories and I don't think -- once the the first open 600 years announced he's stepping down.
You aren't going to have what Frank Bruni -- New York Times called the all -- all the time economic so -- the press.
Are focused on how much -- coverage they don't want.
And to a lot of conservative or Catholic reporters we're very.
With the tone of confidence or at least some of the profits.
And -- is.
Something and I just must agree from the -- paint and free press.
He was quoting now that stand out -- -- -- the telegraph he -- The media stories and bring home -- or if they should be entitled.
Older only -- Ferraro quits misogynist institution.
Because he can't -- it.
I mean there was a lot of criticism.
Of the pope's unwillingness.
To kind of be tougher on the -- predator problem.
On -- Financial mismanagement.
Of the Vatican all the stories that have come out.
Because at the pope's talk more about T wasteful spending.
A lot of the focus was really on those stories rather than on what Melinda -- -- -- in the Washington Post called.
She wants and their -- it's not you know -- ways and very brave and reaching out to eastern and Arab Christians.
Eastern Catholics and also to Islamic.
Our various Islamic speakers and Islamic figures he was also a -- important it was an important -- her hair was the highlighting of what they he called the co existence and reason and -- And didn't make some effort to kind of get a handle on.
Priest predator problem or so.
You know most people felt most Tony critics who worked springs cents -- should've been more balanced that being said given the outrage in Ireland and -- this country is given what's going on in the archdiocese.
In our Los Angeles it's hard not to concentrate on the priest predator problem and -- Why was the Vatican's cleaning rooms are tolerant or indifferent.
Indifference to this terrible problem has -- Catholic Church.
Gotten hot -- hot to suggest that there was a a bigger issue.
Within the Catholic Church over -- last a couple of decades I guess really Judy but -- do you think we will see.
A more rigorous.
Covering the hole less rigorous covering.
-- all of the Vatican.
Is this a new era for everybody does -- give everybody a new chance.
I'm not sure because one in terms of the American Media out most American outlets no longer how -- euros in Ronald -- country back.
Much less of the New York Times used to have not only her bra and you're rushing but have Vatican are cheap that's simply not on anybody's priority -- today and religion coverage in general is -- have a lot of priority for institutions that's.
The first thing but second -- I think that you know religious figures in general tend to get a -- they are are usually not subjected to the same kind work.
Scrutiny unless you have a -- charging bulls aren't what sexual her aunt in predilection nor.
The -- -- problem or some kind of financial scandal.
I I just think -- that in general.
At Frank Bruni made -- very good why Rich's most American Catholics no longer look at the Vatican.
As a source of leadership.
He pointed out that 80%.
Under American Catholics say they don't agree with all our church's position on birth control or at least had not been guided by it.
Said that they don't current high stock in the Vatican as a source of leadership authority more than 60%.
They said that they support the ordination of women priests.
Which of course the Vatican has opposed so what he argues is that -- -- increasingly have an institution in -- the -- disconnect.
From the views of most American Catholics that would not.
I suggest there's going to be an awful lot of focus on what the Vatican isn't it's not saying on the other -- not -- From what I had it -- about I -- your -- for.
-- -- and ask yourself can you even I presented -- much about thought hierarchy.
Presbyterian Church is I mean the -- still occupies.
Me in place in -- Both a religious hierarchy and also our media our spirit is that has no equal.
All right Judy Miller thought she's considered -- thank you very much Judy Judy -- others of course can be seen.
Told him at all these sorts of subjects some FOX News Watch posted by Jones got to -- and 11:30 eastern Saturdays thank you Judy I want --
