Vatican blasts 'false' pre-conclave reporting, including allegations of gay plot within Catholic Church

From an Associated Press article by Nicole Winfield about Pope Benedict XVI's resignation:

VATICAN CITY -- The Vatican lashed out Saturday at the media for what it said has been a run of defamatory and false reports before the conclave to elect Pope Benedict XVI's successor, saying they were an attempt to influence the election.

Buried deep in this very confusing article, probably past the point anyone will read:

The divisions ... were exposed by the documents taken from the pope's study by his butler and then leaked by a journalist. The documents revealed the petty wrangling, corruption and cronyism and even allegations of a gay plot at the highest levels of the Catholic Church.
