TFTD: Was Emily Litella in Charge of the Media Coverage?

Emily Litella

So now it seems there are updates from the Vatican and the Bishops participating in the extraordinary synod. There was a mistranslation of a word in the unofficial translation of a draft document. Solidly orthodox bishops are giving their take, showing that the synod fathers do not intend the confusion in the rough draft spill over into the final draft.  

So it begins to look like media reports causing such horror among conservative bloggers may have been a little bit of an overreaction. Hopefully everyone’s learned their lessons, from the bishops being more aware of media incompetence (or possibly bad will) to the rush to judgment from the blogs.

It does make me ponder though . . . why did the whole uproar end up sounding like the ranting of a certain Gilda Radner character?
