How so?
Catholic television merely teaches its false doctrines to a wider populace. NO benefit there, at all.

Pope ought to just be honest and declare himself the idiot he is.

..... Any club or association or sport or belief system may honor any of its members for whatever they like and give them any title they like not breaching trade-mark and copyright laws. Also medals have been provided. But are all recipients "GOOD" people?
..... Compare what the many belief systems like and dislike of their members to do or not do, with what Jesus liked and disliked of his followers.

The Bible God gave us. If it doesn't fall in line with the Bible, IT'S FALSE teaching.

I remember Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's TV show in the 1950s. I was just a kid back then, but Bishop Sheen was a great TV personality for his time. His show was much better that some of the other religious programs.

How can you be assured that your interpretation of Scripture is correct? As opposed to the next house of worship down the street.

We thank God for giving us Fulton Sheen, a truly holy man sent from God to us. Detractors we do not need to argue with for we do not give dogs what is sacred, and we do not throw our pearls to pigs.

So why do you pay so much homage to mere human beings instead of God alone, like you're supposed to?

justa, I once asked a priest to whom "truth" is revealed - he answered "to the pope and the magisterium" I wonder how this differs from "truth" being revealed to the JW's Watchtower Society and the Mormon elders?

Fulton Sheen certainly conveyed truth and morals more completely than some of the more recent televangelists - and dare I say even ewtn.
