Quick media bias note by Marc Aupiais
"But on Monday, the newspaper reversed itself with an article by the Vatican's top art historian shooting down the claim. Under the front-page headline "A New Caravaggio? Not really", Vatican Museums chief Antonio Paolucci wrote that the work was not of Caravaggio's quality"
- The Independent adds. Really that little paragraph says it all, the title hardly says it all.
L'Osservatore Romano is the Vatican newspaper as much as the Telegraph is the Tory newspaper. It may be sold in the Vatican, but isn't an official Vatican vetted paper, really the editor, has the say, a very controversial man to say the least, who has raised many eyebrows. Official Vatican institutions include Vatican Information Service: a text service which would be there for official announcements to any such art if it were so. ANy credible service looks there for the Vatican's real stances.
The Independent admits that the article itself does not claim it is definitively a new Caravaggio. Perhaps their alleged historic and present day secularist anti-Catholic bias makes them as likely to use a misleading headline as any other paper. As it is, unlike The Catholic Civilization paper, the L'Osservatore Romano, no more represents the Vatican, than the Telegraph represents Great Britain or England! Try again Independent. Actually, don't!
