A Fox News reporter has changed bosses, though only slightly. He’s leaving the network to become a communications adviser to the Vatican. AP reports:
The Vatican has brought in the Fox News correspondent in Rome to help improve its communications strategy as it tries to cope with years of communications blunders and one of its most serious scandals in decades, The Associated Press learned Saturday.
Greg Burke, 52, will leave Fox to become a senior communications adviser in the Vatican’s secretariat of state, the Vatican and Burke told the AP.
“I’m a bit nervous but very excited. Let’s just say it’s a challenge,” Burke said in a phone interview.
And this part is entirely unsurprising:
Burke, a native of St. Louis, Missouri, is a member of the conservative Opus Dei movement. Pope John Paul II’s longtime spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, was also a member of Opus Dei.
I think this is a lateral move.
