    “the pontiff hosted Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders overnight at his residence last week and then met with him briefly on Saturday morning.” The pope said all attendees at the Vatican conference stayed in Martha’s House but that only Sanders was waiting for him at 6 am in the hall, and that all Sanders got was an “hello” and a handshake. Scammel read this because she quotes part of what the pope said but she deliberately misrepresented the rest of pope’s words. RNS should their reporters to a higher standard.
