Accuracy in Media

Just as Mother Teresa will be canonized as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, CNN ran a piece that included quotes of a critic of the prominent Catholic nun who did humanitarian work in India.

But saintly is not a word everyone uses for Mother Teresa. Her critics say she was anything but.
Disillusioned former volunteer Hemley Gonzalez didn’t meet her in person, but what he calls the “horrific remnants of her legacy” have left him deeply uncomfortable. After visiting the facilities she’s responsible for starting, he feels only a “troubled individual” could have set them up.
But the critic, Hemley Gonzalez, was unhappy about the lack of transparency surrounding the financial decisions of the nun’s organization called the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkatta (India).
