Why The News Media Hype The Pope And The Papal Election
Frank Bruni: "We in the media love the clear-cut drama of transitions. They're easy to grasp and frame. And in the case of the Vatican, they come with majestic visual backdrops, colorfully costumed characters: a pageant extraordinaire. It looks splendid on the front page and even better on the nightly news."
