I read this on Newsday, buried at the bottom of an article about how the media gets to ask questions of the Pope. It's got me wondering what exactly was said.
After the news conference ended, journalists huddled to help translate the pope's answers for those who didn't speak Spanish or Italian, the languages he used. Then debates ensued about what was the biggest news of the conference. Many thought it was his comment that he isn't left-leaning -- he's just following the social doctrine of the church.
