Dissing Pope Benedict XVI

I shouldn't be surprised but, well... The media reporting of the election of Pope Benedict XVi is pitiful. CNN is unwatchable. Instead of say, reports of Ratzinger's volumonous writings we get Paula Zahn prattling on about how 'disappointed' some American Catholics are. Nevermind that some Catholics may be excited or intrigued or neutral or indifferent to the new Pope.

Johnathan Last over at the Daily Standard compiled a list of media hand-wringing quotes. Warning: high volume of Andrew Sullivan hysteria included.

Meanwhile Sploid, the liberal version of Drudge, has two headlines: 'Angry Welcome for Pope Rat' and 'Nazi Pope: Ratzinger Is Benedict XVI'.

Wizbang has several other lovely comments from our friends over at the Democratic Underground.

It's only a matter of time until the Islamists start bitching. Watch for it.
