Reader reaction to Reuters news
An angle that didn’t belong
Pope’s Berlin mass moved to Nazi Olympic site
I was really disappointed when I was reading this article.
What is the sense or the ulterior motive of the first part? That it will be a nazi-like event with red flags and torches and so on?
Next news on Reuters: The pope will use a nazi-built airport in Berlin!? And was it wrong, when I was driving on a nazi-bulit highway last time when i was in Germany?
Sadly Leni Riefenstahl is dead, that would have been a great documentary about the pope’s visit.
Several readers complained about this story, and they were right.
The Nazi angle frequently is mentioned in stories involving that stadium, but it didn’t belong in the headline or lede.
