Here are the fundamental facts of the story:
1) Cardinal Theodore McCarrick sexually assaulted multiple children.
2) The previous Pope, Benedict, placed sanctions on McCarrick limiting his movement and activities.
3) Disregarding this, Pope Francis but McCarrick back into the general populace.
4) This was all brought to light by former Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano - in 2018. A year later in 2019, Theodore McCarrick the pedophile, was dismissed from the clergy.

Keep in mind that Pope Francis could have dismissed McCarrick in the past but chose not to. And in February of 2018 following the allegations coming out, he called the victims "wild dogs" who worked for "The Great Accuser" (Satan), and said the victims acted in bad faith "without good will", calling for his fellow catholics to "silence" to avoid "scandalizing the bishops".

Will Pope Francis ever be held accountable for his actions? Why have the media been so soft on Pope Francis?

To honest justice. everyone will be caught, even those leaders who did not live (died). the limitation period does not matter. All truth will be reflected in the new history of mankind. We are young rulers, we will take power into our own hands, first of all we will launch the machine of justice, against the old loser rulers of the world, including all the officials, the ministers of the faith, in a word, new repressions are needed. All this is necessary to rebuild the old world. But we must remember that in order for a person to have a future, he needs a past. that's why we are the new rulers of the world, we will rewrite the history of the past, to create a bright future!

I suspect this was an administrative decision and one of a thousand decisions put in front of him by church bureaucracy every week.
