Et tu, MSNBC?

Seriously, do major new outlets have NO ONE on their staffs who can even be bothered to learn the terminology of fields on which they report? I mean, they do get paid for it, right?

Do they hire sports guys to write about "the pointy ended leather thingies" got kicked past "those two high wooden sticks"?


They do not.

So why would they let someone say  that a celebrity "opens [sic] Mass for Pope Francis"?

Or that he "delivered the first, or Lector, reading at the Mass"?

I know it's just a little added indignity, to their main purposes in reporting that, as a way of sticking it to orthodox Catholics, but still.

Do they have to be so amateurish while they are insulting us?
