The Pope's U.S. Visit According to GetReligion

I think GetReligion has some helpful insights for everyone in interpreting any type of "religious event" in the news, and they recently wrote a summary of their coverage of Pope Francis's first visit to the United States.

The pope has come. The pope has gone. Now it is time for mainstream journalists to tell us what it all meant, to show readers the big picture and to reveal larger truths about what Pope Francis said and, maybe, even about what he should have said.
There's more to this process than news, of course.
