Quick Note on Media Coverage
I kept up with the WYD events through various Catholic media outlets, and was not terribly surprised to find no mention of it when I made my daily CNN news-check. I did get curious to know just how deep into the CNN site I would have to dig to locate anything about the Pope and the youth.
One had to move from the main page to the "World" tab. From there, scroll down to the bottom of the page and locate the Europe section. Here, there is a tiny link with a brief overview about World Youth Day.
This, to me, serves as an important reminder for all of us how limiting the "powers that be" really are and how much influence these "powers" have in determining what is news/important and what isn't.
