RealClearReligion - John Allen: The RealClearReligion Interview

When the National Catholic Reporter’s senior correspondent John L. Allen, Jr. was called upon to put a question to Pope Benedict XVI in 2008, the Vatican press officer said: “Holy Father, this man needs no introduction.”

So very true, and the interview gives a model of what sober reporting should look like.

"There is occasions and causes why and wherefore in all things."
