The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera, denounced the excess of reporters who “destroy the dignity, the good name of people” with no regard for whether they are innocent or not. “They don’t kill man’s body, but they are a snake that destroys the reputation of others.”
In a Mass celebrated at a female prison facility, the cardinal referenced reporters who don’t seek the truth but rather seek to profit by creating scandals like “true prostitutes of the media” for whom “there is no other justice than that which they dictate.”
“With their sentence they judge, they condemn,” the cardinal said.
At the conclusion of his visit, Cardinal Rivera told reporters that his comments about them should not be generalized, “in the same way that when a priest is accused of illicit activities it shouldn’t be said that all are like that.”
