POPE WATCH

Can the Pope Google?

Does Pope Benedict face a mutiny? Since his installment four years ago, the Pope has un-excommunicated a Holocaust denier, made inflammatory remarks on Islam and homosexuality and, most recently, announced that condoms are a "problem" for AIDS in Africa. Now, his own people are turning on him. One Vatican insider tells The Telegraph the Pope is isolated and fails to consult his advisers, while another calls his papacy "a disaster," and adds, "he's out of touch with the real world." Part of the problem may be that the Vatican's method of slowly releasing information via a PR office that closes every day at 3 pm is obsolete in a new media world. Critics have pointed out that the pontiff needs someone who knows how to Google--a simple search, for example, would have revealed that bishop Richard Williamson had denied the Holocaust.
