Yep, the media was right on it!  They were bloodhounds sniffing out his Twitter account!  Too bad it wasn’t real. 

 

David Freddoso @freddoso

This is a fake account run by some sick person, not genuine —> @jmbergoglio

 

It’s weird, they almost never apologize for the crap they get wrong on a daily basis, but for this one, they do…….  Oops, oops, oops……

Robert Mackey @RobertMackey

Apologies, we’ve corrected earlier @thelede update: @Pontifex is active again but Cardinal’s personal Twitter account is reportedly a hoax.

 

NBCWashington @nbcwashington

Correction: We’re now hearing that this account is a fake: http://bit.ly/Znhe8H

 

Boston.com News @BostonDotCom

CORRECTION: @JMBergoglio is not the account of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Our apologies.

These are the people who want you to believe they’re trustworthy and bring you accurate information.  They can’t even look at past comments to confirm a Twitter account presumed to be the Pope’s.

    Real journalism is slightly harder than editing Greenpeace press releases into shocking exposés.

    Why do bloggers check their source material more and better than the MSM does? Is it because they are poor penniless church-mice? (/sarc)

    Well if NYT and NBC continue long enough like this maybe they too will be staffed by poor penniless church-mice like the unpaid writers for Huffpo (/sarc^2).

    While I do not know, I suspect that Pope Francis had no twitter accounts. And it did not take me making a fool of myself to realize his lifestyle is not conducive to it.

    But then I am not a worm of the MSM either.
