Well, the liberal mainstream media once again downplays their coverage for this year’s March for Life in Washington D.C. This is also despite the fact that 200,000 pro-lifers marched last Thursday.
Media Research Center conducted data and found the following.
Of the three broadcast networks, only CBS mentioned the 2015 March for Life, allotting it just 15 seconds. That’s one second for every 13,000 people who put work and school aside and traveled from as far away as the West Coast. It’s one second for every 3.8 million babies aborted in the last 42 years.
Instead, CBS found other stories more important – spending 21 seconds on a prehistoric shark, 2 minutes, 49 seconds on the New England Patriots allegedly cheating their way to the Super Bowl, and 3 minutes and 2 seconds on a measles outbreak.
And as a reminder for the 2013 March for Life coverage, 17 seconds of coverage took place for the big 3 media stations, and on the other hand giving 521 times more coverage to the Manti Te’o girlfriend scandal.
The march coverage in 2014 was not much better, in which the ‘big 3’ networks only spent 46 seconds on it. They spent over 4 times more coverage on last year’s People’s Climate March, that same March where rich, liberal hypocrites used their private jets and limos to travel to. It is also no surprise that the left thinks tackling climate change is more important than abortion.
In fact, National Catholic Reporter, a liberal source that claims to be ‘independent’, wrote an article last year titled “Editorial: Climate change is church’s No. 1 pro-life issue.” I almost fell out of my seat when they posted this. As a Catholic myself, I guarantee if you polled Catholic bishops and priest around the world, including the Pope, about what they think the number 1 pro-life issue is, a majority of them would not contemplate ‘climate change.’ NCR’s article is not anything unique. There are many on the left who would consider combating ‘climate change’ is more vital than abortion.
As absurd as I thought NCR’s article was, Salon is giving them good competition for absurdity. Katie McDonough wrote an article on January 13 of this year titled “The March for Life is a march against birth control. Will the GOP get behind it?”
This is ridiculous. Does McDonough not realize there are many conservative Christians who are pro-life but don’t oppose birth control? There are many pro-lifers who also use them, so the author knows she’s lying when she says anyone who supports the March is also against birth control. However, this is the type of rhetoric liberal outlets have been using every year for the March for Life.
These stories are just a few of the many used by the left to distort and downplay the March for Life, and that is because they’re scared. They’re scared knowing that we are winning this debate. More people are now pro-life than those who claim to be ‘pro-choice’, and that number of pro-lifers is continuing to grow. The bottom line is despite abortion supporters trying to silence pro-lifers, they cannot silence God’s creation. Good always prevail against evil in the end, and our current youth generation is pro-life now more than ever. The question is no longer ‘if’ but it is ‘when’ we will become a fully pro-life nation again and overturn Roe v. Wade.
