Time's cover story (June 7, 2010) is just a diatribe against the Pope - an essay, devoid of newsworthy facts. It reads as if the magazine needs to, once again, smear the Church which it seems to believe is the last standing enemy of liberal progressivism.
I expected a major cover story to contain reporting of actual facts. Instead, it contains embarrassing errors, no understanding of theology and sophomoric reporting. I think this particular story is a telling example of why newsweeklies are failing - it is one more attempt to provide a salacious cover and story "Why Being Pope Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry." with no obvious purpose other than to denigrate the Vatican.
