Could Pope Francis have died, Popular TV station announced on Live TV.

Could Pope Francis have died? It was just announced on live TV on a British channel called ITV News that Pope Francis was dead.

The newscaster appeared to be reading off notecards or a teleprompter and caught herself after making the announcement, correcting herself to say it wasn’t true.

But it begs the question: how did it get in the teleprompter?

Loaded prematurely?

This next Tweet it not necessarily something I believe because I haven’t seen the evidence for it yet, but can you imagine?

Papal Hall at the Vatican, which is closed, as is Buckingham Palace, as is the Capitol, as is the White House.

Francis’ Christmas day remarks were being recapped Saturday by ITV broadcaster Kylie Pentelow, who was plugging along nicely … until a little slip at the end when she said, “His death was announced …”

Pentelow caught herself before she said anything more, and then apologized briefly before doing a hard pause and moving on to the next story.

There didn’t seem to be any explanation as to why she said that — but the obvious answer seems to be that she was reading off of a teleprompter, which must’ve said something to that effect. Indeed, a true Ron Burgundy moment in real-time.

Of course, the Pope isn’t dead — he’s alive and kicking. And as for what he had to say about ‘rona during his speech at the Vatican … it was all about praying the pandemic away, and lamenting those who’ve suffered through the era of Covid.

He spoke from a balcony looking down onto St. Peter’s Square … which was filled with just a fraction of the crowd it might normally draw.

I suppose we will find out in the near future if it was a “mistake” or if it was just mistakenly announced prematurely….
