Skip to comments.A Headline You’ll Never Hear: A Decade of Abortion Clinic Peace
Posted on 07/26/2009 9:41:32 AM PDT by wagglebee
But the doctors violent death was the latest in a string of shootings and bombings over two decades directed against abortion clinics doctors and staff.Is this accurate? The author of a blog called Political Math decided to check. Political Math uses youtube videos and graphs to demonstrate statistical points about everything from President Obamas expansion of the national debt, to the number of jobs lost after the stimulus package was enacted.
Given the actual data, the characterization of this incident as the latest in a string of shootings and bombings is deeply dishonest. It embeds into peoples minds the idea that this is a very common tragedy, like school shootings, hurricanes or gang-related violence. In fact, until I looked at the data very recently, I was under exactly that impression.So whats the cause of the discrepancy? Is it that journalists are deliberately twisting the facts to fit their viewpoint?
It would be much more accurate to say something along the lines of:
This incident has shattered an eight year lull in anti-abortion related shootings, an activity that spiked to record levels in the 90s.
Abortionists violently murder over 3500 innocent Americans EVERY DAY, that's the real violence.
Looks like the so-called "string" peaked in the Clinton admin., and became nonexistent during the Bush admin. But good luck seeing that piece of info reported by the MSM.
The right needs to continue to create and display fact-based analysis of all the phony canards of the seditiously biased media. A picture is still worth 1,000 words.
