With news of the motu proprio being in the hands of 30 bishops from around the world, and a general public release date of July 7th (just like a jackpot 7/7/7), we can now sit back and watch how the media treat this.
I can't refer you to a better analysis of news articles than Fr. Z. He enters the article, then enters his own comments and emphases throughout.
I'm going to be editing this post - perhaps up until the day the motu proprio is released, then start another. So, follow the links accordingly. I'll keep the most recent on top.
I'm going to include general motu proprio news here too so keep checking this post.

Fr. Z: Motu proprio to offer ALL sacraments (21 points summarize an Italian article in Il Giornale)
This next one I could take you directly to the blog of Cardinal Sean O'Malley, but Fr. Z's comments interwoven into that are well worth reading. You can pick up a link there to the Cardinal's post. Remember, he was there for that meeting, which he says included 25 bishops.
