Once again, as if by magic, the liberal media has decided that instead of reporting events, they are going to politicize and spin them to their own agenda.
Back on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, as happens EVERY SINGLE YEAR (in the bitter cold of January) since its passage, the pro life community held a gigantic protest in Washington DC. This year, there were more than 300,000 people in attendance. There were also pro choice protesters there, but most reports say it was less than 100 people.
Well, guess what was in New York newspapers?
An archive photo of PRO CHOICE protesters… Read this: “In an article dated January 23, Gannett’s Democrat and Chronicle ran a report on a pro-life advocates attending the March for Life rally with the headline, “Rally Supports Roe v. Wade.” In addition to the slanted headline, the newspaper report began with a focus on pro-abortion demonstrators, who were far outnumbered by the pro-life supporters taking part in the March for Life. The article made mention of less than a dozen people who lined a Rochester street, holding signs supporting abortion.”
And the Washington Post, another biased rag not suitable for use as toilet paper did the same thing – a photo of 5 feminists holding pro-choice signs and an article that only mentions “thousands of abortion opponents” instead of using the actual numbers estimated by the police department.
This rally has occurred every year for 34 years, and I’ll bet you’ve never heard of it before you read my post here.
The media does more than slant stories, they show their bias by what they choose to report and what they choose not to report. My hope is that you’ll all remember that there’s never a single source of news that tells the entire story – they all have their agendas. Make sure you read widely and draw your own conclusions.
Even if you’re a liberal (Andria), you should read Drudge and O’Reilly as counterbalance to what MSNBC and ABC report. You can believe I read the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and even watch MSNBC. My primary source of news is CNN, not Fox as some of you might have thought. However, I always cross check my facts and make sure I have as much of a complete picture as possible.
It’s really stunning how overt the media bias is against conservative Christians in America.
Here’s a good article that goes into more detail about this specific event: Newsbusters Reports on March for Life Media Bias.
