A New Pope and “The Most Corrupt Vatican Since the Borgias”

The Catholic Church has a new pope. Seventy-six-year-old Jorge Mario Bergoglio has called himself Pope Francis. He’s the 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. He’s also the first non-European leader of the Church in more than 1,000 years.

Matthew Fox (former Catholic priest) discusses, with TRNN senior editor Paul Jay, the Vatican’s work with the CIA and it’s alliance with far right political forces and Pope Francis’ opposition to liberation theology in Latin America.
