Skip to comments.DC News Ignores March for Life
Posted on 01/23/2014 6:56:19 AM PST by crusher
Last night after watching CSI, itself an interesting episode spun off from the recent car-crash death of the investigative reporter, I left the t.v. on and tuned to WUSA 9, the CBS flagship station in Washington, District of Corruption. I wanted to catch the weather news and see the coverage of the March for Life. Well, there was plenty of the former and none of the latter. Zero.
In the city where the event took place, and tens of thousands of folks marched downtown, it was ignored as though it never happened.
They did, however, had enough time to dedicate five minutes to a segment about the construction of a piece of ice furniture!
As local talkmeister Chris Plante says, news bias is not just in the multitude of lies they tell, it is more importantly in the multitude of stories they ignore. If it isn't on the news, it never happened.
Actually, I have looked EVERYWHERE and can find nothing on it anywhere. I mean, I can find info on those announcing it, but I’ve seen zero coverage on ANY of the news sites.
(I refuse to watch any “news entertainment”)
It was on the 6:30 p.m. news. It was reported don’t worry.
Well, it had ceased to exist by 11PM.
News about Chris Christie and blocking traffic is ominpresent. Yet there wasn’t much reported on the March for Life. Clearly news directors are making decisions about what stories to push and which to downplay.
This omission is deliberate. They know what they are doing.
During the afternoon rush hour, WTOP (103.5 FM) reported traffic congestion on the streets around the Supreme Court, and the reporter specifically credited it to the Right to Life marchers. No editorializing; just the facts. I was pleasantly surprised. (I didn’t catch the top-of-the-hour news digest, so I don’t know if they reported on the event or not.)
Assuming it's still available, you can see all 5+ hours on youtube:
