snapped at journalists during a Monday press conference recapping the World Meeting of Families conference that culminated with the papal visit. The attendance at the events was smaller than had been anticipated by city officials.
“In some instances, you all scared the shit out of people,” Nutter said, referring to why some people avoided the city during the visit by Pope Francis.
Most news organizations reported what Nutter said but they either printed the word as s____ or they broadcast the sound bite with a bleep. Are those the best way to handle that?
Many news organizations continue to call the Pope's visit "historic" and they said the Sunday mass was "blessed."
Was history made? Was the event blessed? What do those words mean? And is it the role of the journalists to make such proclamations?
