The Pope Declared Dead By Mistake in TV Blunder
The Pope has died while discussing Covid-19 — at least that’s what one broadcaster almost had her viewers thinking … when she mistakenly said the guy had croaked.
Francis’ Christmas day remarks were being recapped Saturday by ITV broadcaster Kylie Pentelow, who was plugging along nicely … until a little slip at the end when she said, “His death was announced …”
Pentelow caught herself before she said anything more, and then apologized briefly before doing a hard pause and moving on to the next story.
There didn’t seem to be any explanation as to why she said that — but the obvious answer seems to be that she was reading off of a teleprompter, which must’ve said something to that effect. Indeed, a true Ron Burgundy moment in real-time.
Of course, the Pope isn’t dead — he’s alive and kicking. And as for what he had to say about ‘rona during his speech at the Vatican … it was all about praying the pandemic away, and lamenting those who’ve suffered through the era of Covid.
He spoke from a balcony looking down onto St. Peter’s Square … which was filled with just a fraction of the crowd it might normally draw.
