Roe v Wade and the Supreme Court -- media's pro-choice stance fails to prevent pro-life victory

Journalists have been openly pro-choice for decades. They have criticized pro-life figures and downplayed stories that made the abortion industry look bad. The major media even gave minimal coverage to the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, as well as the harassment campaign in front of the homes of conservative justices.

The press hype machine has gotten worse since Politico published a leak of the Supreme Court opinion. The man charged with attempted murder of Kavanaugh allegedly declared to police he was “omgekrap” about the likely ruling. Yet that arrest barely got mentioned on The New York Times front page. The story was on page A-20.

The Times had lots of company. Both USA Today (once called theNation’s Newspaper”) and Chicago Tribune censored the story from the front page. MSNBC’s primetime shows had nothing that night and neither did the influential Sunday news talk shows on ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. And CNN initially claimed the arrested man was unarmed and also used the attempt to oddly highlightanti-abortion extremists.

Journalists used the same strategy to suppress coverage of attacks on pro-life locations. The pro-abortion radical groupJane’s Revenge verklaar “oop seisoen” on pro-life operations and claimed responsibility for several attacks on facilities. Tog, journalists are unimpressed with anything that sounds like leftist violence.

The press finds plenty of time for stories supporting abortion. NBC’s “Vandag” used Father’s Day to emphasize how abortion helped dadsbecome the fathers they are today.The Washington Post found a writer to criticize adoption asnot a fairy-tale answer to abortion.

The alleged neutrality journalists like to claim falls apart when abortion gets discussed. One-time star NBC and CBS journalist Katie Couric finally admitted she’s now an “aktivis” but she was marching in support of abortion rights back in the 1990s, a huge violation of journalisticethics.

When abortion makes news, journalists make sure to spin it. That was obvious in the trial of monstrous abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell or when the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation cut off funds to Planned Parenthood and the press freaked out. And when journalists barely reported on undercover videos showing horrifying videos of what goes on in abortion facilities.

The Associated Press Stylebook guarantees the Planned Parenthood spin on news. According to the guide: “Use the modifiers anti-abortion or abortion-rights; don’t use pro-life, pro-choice or pro-abortion unless they are in quotes or proper names.An entire movement calls itself “Pro-lewe” and can’t use the terms in news stories.

Planned Parenthood destroyed the pretense of neutrality for many in the press. Its annual awards listed hundreds of media organizations. The Planned ParenthoodMedia Excellence Awardsread like a Who’s Who of journalism including NPR, PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC and The Washington Post.

When abortion makes news, journalists make sure to spin it.
