Trey Jackson notes that CNN’s blog roundup yesterday highlighted several pro-Pope blogs, but also included a few that were critical, either of the Pope or the news coverage. Amy Welborn was prominently featured. Interestingly, Fr. David Connell, president of Catholic University of America, had some harsh words for blogs, in general, not just on the topic of the Pope’s death. He thinks they’re uncivil. I wonder what blogs he’s been reading.
Looks like the Catholic blogs are finally getting in gear on this (I was wondering where everybody was over the weekend), and getting good solid information out there to counter misinformation, heterodox punditry, and downright anti-Catholicism both online and on TV.
