— Ace A reporter says it was the under-the-chin va fan cul gesture; Scalia says it was more of chin-stroking "I don't care guesture."
Does anyone care either way, besides our liberal suddenly-very-decorous media?

I media hate's it when someone
like Scalia can make mincemeat
out of them, verbally and non-verbally.

Unlike most of his colleagues, Scalia is not shy about taking on the media, and has a penchant for doing so in a way that has caused some critics to question his decorum, if not his maturity.
Translation? Scalia's very occasional media criticism hits home with thin skinned liberal reporters.

The ones most bothered by this gesture were fellow Catholics. It wasn't what he did, it was where he did it.
As if you care about the truth here.

There are many times- when people bother me with trifling nonsense- that I wished I could use it.
Its not an obscene gesture- it means 'no' or 'I could care less' or 'don't bother me.' Basically, a dismissal.
But people think its obscene, because Americans only have a few universal gestures, and they're all obscene.

So the media perception is not that a member of an organized religion cannot be impartial, it is rather that people who are not impartial (i.e. those who disagree with the media) are frequently members of organized religion.
