 Spreading disinformation is “probably the greatest damage that the media can do”, the Pope told the Belgian Catholic weekly Tertio. It is a sin to defame people, he added.

Fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda are willing to see his idol telling the story of Alexander Hamilton totally drunk in the next episode of Drunk History. But for Public Health expert Marylin Aguirre-Molina, it can set a bad example for Latinos, who are becoming increasingly vulnerable to alcoholism.
