Thanks for #conclave tweets. Trying to focus on what cards discussing rather than potential names...because media largely has no clue.—

They really do not have a clue! Ah, nothing like an inadvertent zinger. CNN’s Chris Cuomo has been covering the papal conclave.
Along with many other members of the media from across the globe.
The Mass that will precede the conclave is open to the public. Press access necessarily limited, since 5,600 journalists here so far.—

Cuomo explains his “no clue” tweet.
It’s especially tough to cover when one knows nothing about it, as prescient Twitter users already predicted.
News reports indicate Pope Benedict is Catholic and apparently quite serious about it.—

Lacking papal equivalent of Almanac of American Politics, Twitter journos forced to admit they know fuck all about most things.—

I expect the U.S. media to cover Roman Catholicism about as well as it does the American South.—

This Twitter user summed it up in her response to Mr. Cuomo.
Heh. Don’t forget the Google glasses!
