Pope Francis has criticized journalists who “dramatize the old scandals and make news from sensationalism,” saying that it is “a very serious sin.” About it reports The Guardian.
Francis, who plans to devote its forthcoming annual circulation of “fake news,” said Catholic media in Saturday that journalists have a mission which is one of the most fundamental to democratic societies. But he reminded them of the need to provide accurate and complete information, and not “unilateral reports”.
“You should not indulge in “sins of communication”: misinformation or a view of only one hand, sensation is based on slander, digging in old news a long time all know,” said Francis.
He called these actions “a serious sin that hurts a journalist and hurts others.”
Yesterday, the Vatican has updated the rules governing the use of the relics of the saints. Now forbidden to sell body parts of saints and harnessed them to the “blasphemous rituals”.
