Watching it on FNC...it looks pretty white to me. Sky Italia & RAI are both reporting a new pope elected.

No bells though.... You know, this tradition is nice, but with better technology now, we don't have to make the announcement this hard.

The radio news department just broke in with an announcment that there was smoke, but it was unclear if it was white or black. Thanks for that breaking news guys.

KFI radio in Los Angles is talking about it. They say that it is not clear if the smoke is white or black due to the cloudy sky over Rome today. They also say that the bells have not yet begun to ring.

Smoke continues to flow out, so it may be that the election is over and a new Pope has been selected.

I'm watching CNN--I can't really hear any bells, but the crowd is cheering and maybe they're drowned out?

Is anyone else hearing bells?

Breaking news on CNN - Al Gore has announced that he's going to appeal the election and demand a recount, saying that he has enough votes to become the next Pope.
