The amazing invisible Shroud of Turin

Count on Bill Donahue for a snappy quote about NBC's obedience to Thou Shalt Not Sully Thy Olympics Coverage With Any Mention of the Shroud of Turin:

"If you asked the average American to name something about Turin, Italy, they'd name the Shroud," Donohue said. "It's like having the Olympics in Fort Knox and not mentioning gold."

I agree. And part of me suspects we have our peaceful, cartoon-loving Islamo-brethren to blame as they've made the MSM totally paranoid about any references to religion.

Can't risk a fatwa from the Vatican, eh.

Bill Donohue may be right about the "average American" connecting Turin with the Shroud. But when discussing the MSM, we are not speaking of average anything...these are the folks who come out of journalism schools that rank right ahead of schools and departments of education.

As we already know, many graduates of the latter have trouble passing the very tests that they are giving to their own students. We mistake the faux sophistication of reporters, be they journalism or law school graduates, for common intelligence.
