Need a Laugh? Check out "Gloria TV"

If you were doing a spoof of rightwing Catholics in the media, a Catholic, television-based version of the Onion, you could not do any better than the work, undertaken in earnest, found at GloriaTV. Who is behind this program? The production values are not very high, but still, somebody is paying for this. Here is a segment of their news show in which they begin with the dismissal of the Paraguayan Bishop Livieres Plano. I especially like the way the hostess prefaces this segment with the segment title "Evil." Later in the short broadcast, she takes a swipe at Bishop Cupich too. This would be funny if it was not so sad.
