Did the pope do something wrong?
Did they cover it up so the masses wouldn't lose their faith?

Did the pope do something wrong? no - it wasn't the pope who did something "wrong"
Did they cover it up so the masses wouldn't lose their faith? no !!!

the rule that they broke was something very simple and NOTHING to do with religion. It was to do with an item that is very mainstream !!!

Does it have to do with a rule in a particular time or place when TVs are to be turned off (Catholic school or church perhaps)?
Time/place where something particular is to be watched? But there was an exception made to watch news footage on the pope?

Does the rule govern broadcasters/airers of television? General watchers of television? A specific group of watchers of television?

"Does it have to do with a rule in a particular time or place when TVs are to be turned off (Catholic school or church perhaps)? yes Time/place where something particular is to be watched? yes"

A little confused - did this rule state that TVs were to be turned off? That something particular was to be watched?

Did this happen in a church? A school? A government building? A store? A workplace? A public building (library etc.)?

I'm bored with this so I'm going to spoil !!!

******************SPOILER**********

Basically a group of monks had a rule never to watch TV except on a Sunday afternoon. However, the Pope's funeral was on a Friday.

So, in order to pay homage to the Pope, they chose to break their TV rule and watch the funeral live.
