Only ABC assigned a reporter to cover the pilgrim who jumped over a Vatican railing as the Popemobile passed. CBS and NBC showed the video of him being restrained by Swiss Guards in plain clothes as Benedict XVI, obliviously, continued waving to worshippers.

Wright noted that the Popemobile has a bulletproof bubble when the pontiff goes traveling but at home in the Vatican he rides in the open air.
