It's like Catholic QAnon.
Fake news — it's the bane of the culture right now and was first called out by Donald Trump in the 2016 campaign. It has obviously since become a staple of the American lexicon. Of course, since Trump took that label from the Marxist media and turned it around on them, those same media types have developed a new label, much more formal sounding: "misinformation."
Misinformation became the watchword for the wave of censorship that followed on social media accounts everywhere. Had it not been for Elon Musk's Twitter purchase, that would likely still rule the day across the board. That said, misinformation has become a problem and it is not limited to the secular realm. There is a wave of Catholic misinformation flooding social media almost daily. And for Catholics with a microphone or a platform, this borders on the unforgivable sin.
Any Catholic claiming to be faithful and speaking routinely to an audience has a duty before Almighty God to tell the truth fully to the best of his ability — period. Making an honest mistake is one thing, although even those should be far apart and few in between — and then acknowledged when they happen. But the stream of clickbait headlines and show names and talking points — just to get eyeballs — is beneath the dignity of someone who calls himself or herself "Catholic," especially in faithful, orthodox circles.
Over the past few weeks, the off-the-wall claims and discussions and pure, unsupported conjecture have been alarming:
- UFOs are a precursor to the end of the world
- Biden installed a Baphomet mirror in the White House
- Cdl. Pell was murdered
- George Neumayr was murdered
The list of crazy goes on and on. There are many reasons why this is wrong and unethical, even immoral in some cases.
First, for quite some time now, the line has been blurred between actual news — meaning factual, verifiable information — and the "commentary" that inevitably follows in its wake. It's not enough for Catholic social media and internet personalities to simply grab some headline and then recklessly wax on about it, especially if it's just for clickbait. Since the line is so blurred, people who are listening oftentimes do not make the distinction between nutty commentary supported by nothing more than thoughts swirling around in a host's head and the actual data point — the piece of accurate information.

In the post-mortem (and we do mean post-mortem), not only of the election in the immediate aftermath, but of the nation, people have to face facts coldly in the face.
And if you will allow a personal anecdote here: I was on vigil duty at the house of a 10-year-old girl (here in metro Detroit) who was kidnapped and eventually found dead in a dumpster not far from her home about six weeks later.
For her memory and prayers for her soul, her name was Deanna Seifert, and she lived in the suburb of Warren — kidnapped in the dead of the night on Mother's Day while at a sleepover with her other little friends. During our coverage, we would keep vigil in the street every day, talking to neighbors and filing our reports.
One day, I was talking with a police officer in front of the house, and I said to him how hard it is to think that this kind of horrible thing could happen. His reply has never left me.
