SAN FRANCISCO, January 24, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) The Walk for Life West Coast is demanding to be seen and heard and in the mainstream media. This year, Walk for Life organizers are asking participants to take to the "twittersphere" to end the media blackout.
Saturday will be the tenth year pro-lifers have taken to the streets of San Francisco and, year after year, Walk organizers have noticed a reliable lack of media coverage, especially in the local media. However, they have also noticed the increasing youthfulness of the crowd, and their social media accounts.
So this year, when 50,000 smart-phone-toting pro-life activists descend upon the city, organizers will be asking them to tweet pictures of the events with the official event hashtag #WalkForLife and to include @CNN, @FoxNews, @USAToday, and local news outlets @sfchronicle, @abc7newsBayArea, @nbcbayarea, and @KTVU.
Event organizers will also be posting comments and pictures throughout Saturdays event at facebook.com/WalkforLifeWC. They are inviting people who are not in attendance to share those posts with their friends.
Whether or not mainstream news outlets are present, LifeSiteNews.com has a team of journalists at the Walk for Life West Coast this year to bring you the coverage you desire. LifeSiteNews.com was conceived due to a dearth of media coverage of pro-life and pro-family news. We are committed to integrity in bringing our readers relevant and timely news.
You can also follow our social media coverage of the event at facebook.com/LifeSiteNews.com and Twitter (@LifeSite) during the Walk on Saturday, January 25.
Two car loads of trannies waving signs would lead the evening news.
There is only one way to fix this. Call the media what it is the propaganda media. Shame them ridicule them make them examine what they do. Until then nothing will change.
Every year, the local media coverage of the Walk for Life is completely ridiculous. I participate in the Walk, and we pro-lifers typically outnumber the pro-abortion counter-protesters by at least 500-to-1. And, yet, the typical television news story this evening will devote as much (or even more) camera time to the pro-aborts.
Sadly, the media only responds to violence when it come to stuff they don’t want to cover.
I suggest a controlled burn. Turn over a few cars and burn them. The media will come and the fire department can practice their skills. Works out for everyone.
