Blame the Whistleblower

Apparently, the Boston Archdiocese fired the freelance photographer (who worked for their newspaper, the Pilot, for a decade) who took the picture of Antonin Scalia making a extremely rude gesture in response to a question on how he handles his critics. The photographer, Smith, sold the picture to the Boston Herald. Scalia said that the incident was being spun by his critics and it wasn't what he actually did. Yeah, it was, as other witnesses have supported.
Scalia said, “To my critics, I say, ‘Vaffanculo,’ ” while making the gesture. That’s Italian for (expletive) you
Not quite -- it actually means 'up your a--', but we get the idea.

Why am I not surprised?
