Does Pope Francis deserve the media attention he’s received? William Newton of Blog of the Courtier examined whether the pope is rightfully praised by the media, especially compared to past popes who have done very similar things as Francis has in the past, Newton wrote.
“For example, even though as is now well-known, Pope Francis paid his own hotel bill and thanked all the staff after his election, no one talked about how Pope Benedict went back to his apartment, alone, after he was elected, packed his own bag, and went around thanking the neighbors for their service,” Newton wrote.
