In a recent interview with Tertio, the Pope weighed in on the so-called “fake news” scandal by calling disinformation a sin and saying that the media should not fall victim to “coprophilia” — that’s right, being aroused by poop.
A thing that can do great damage to the information media is disinformation: that is, faced with any situation, saying only a part of the truth, and not the rest. This is disinformation. Because you, to the listener or the observer, give only half the truth, and therefore it is not possible to make a serious judgement. Disinformation is probably the greatest damage that the media can do, as opinion is guided in one direction, neglecting the other part of the truth.
See, all of that is true… but he’s not specifying where this disinformation is coming from, leading the whole of the mainstream media to use the Pope’s statements to point fingers at the alternative media.
The Pope continued:
And then, I believe that the media should be very clear, very transparent, and not fall prey – without offence, please – to the sickness of coprophilia, which is always wanting to communicate scandal, to communicate ugly things, even though they may be true. And since people have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia, it can do great harm. Thus, I would say that there are these four temptations. But they are builders of opinion and can construct, and do immense good, immense.
That’s right, the Pope also says that people who consume fake news are sick and tend toward coprophagia… eating poop.
He’s not talking about governments who spend billions on war propaganda or the mainstream media who parrots and tows the establishment line, even when its a blatant lie…
He’s getting on board with the same censorship agenda as the rest of the system… in a really sick way.
