    As the new year began, The New York Times offered a 780-word article to a protest for illegal immigrants – with four marchers walking from Miami to Washington. But on Saturday, tens of thousands of Americans gathering in Washington for Friday's annual March for Life received – part of a sentence. In the Saturday paper on January 23, an article on the trial facing the killer of late-term abortionist George Tiller on page A-11 featured this note in paragraph 9 of a 12-paragraph dispatch by Monica Davey: Testimony began the same day that abortion rights groups celebrated, and abortion opponents...

    Marching orders The press reveals its convictions in coverage of war and abortion ralliesBy Tim GrahamIt's not often that the nation's capital witnesses two major rallies within four days of each other. On Jan. 18, opponents of a U.S. war against Iraq drew tens of thousands to the national mall to protest. Four days later, another crowd of tens of thousands congregated for the annual March for Life to mourn the 30th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion on demand. The "peace" rally was mostly angry, with podium speakers lamenting the supposedly destructive impact of the...

    Every year on January 22 citizens across the nation March for Life in Washington D.C. to protest the 1973 decision of the US Supreme Court that legalized abortion on demand. And every year the media treats the story as insignificant. Just imagine if 300,000 people coalesced in Washington D.C. to protest so-called global warming, the amount of exposure they would have received. Even the much acclaimed “fair & balanced” FOX news channel could barely muster the word “thousands” when reporting on the volume of the March (the reality is hundreds of thousands of people attended). The only cable television channel...

    How The Media Spun The March CRISIS Magazine - e-Letter January 24, 2003 ********************************************** Where were you 30 years ago? You may not remember. In fact, you might not have even been born. But whether you recall January 22, 1973 or not, you and I are living in its dark shadow. As you may have seen on the news, things here in DC were hopping over the past few days as people geared up for the event. Both pro-life and pro-death (oops, "pro-choice") forces were hoping to get their voices heard. If you read about the events in any of...

    The video you are about to see is a commentary on a documentary by the ministry "Thine Eyes." See for yourself the witness of tens of thousands of young people who participate in the March for Life every year and promise that a tidal wave of life is coming to the voters' booth soon. Respect for life is the primary moral issue of our age and those who fail to defend it must answer to God. Plan now to attend the annual March for Life in January and check out an abortion mill near you. No doubt the sidewalk warriors will...

    Washingtonians opened their top newspaper on Sunday, Jan. 19 to see what could have been predicted down to the letter. "Thousands Oppose a Rush to War," the headline announced, resting under a large color picture of a sea of protesters. Not one, not two, but three articles on the front page cast doubt on the Bush preparations for war on Iraq. Inside, the anti-Bush rally was awarded two entire pages of articles and pictures, and then, as if that weren't enough, the Post tacked on another half a page for the protests in San Francisco. "Chill Doesn't Cool Fury...
  • ABC News Accused of Biased Coverage of Abortion, Pro-Life March

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A media watchdog group is accusing ABC News of biased coverage about abortion and the March for Life, where more than 100,000 people gathered to mourn the Roe v. Wade decision allowing abortion. While ABC on Thursday night gave a few seconds of air time to Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark's clarification of his position in favor of abortion, it blacked out any coverage of the March for Life. Instead, ABC's web site featured two articles with a decidedly pro-abortion viewpoint, notes Jessica Anderson of the Media Research Center.

    It is well-known that the left-wing mainstream media slants its coverage of the annual March for Life. At least 100,000 people take part in the pro-life demonstration every year. However, the press accounts of the March always describes the crowd size in the "tens of thousands." This year, two crowd size estimations are given in the article Protesters See Mood Shift Against 'Roe', by Michelle Boorstein of the Washington Post. It cites, "Stephen G. Peroutka, chairman of the National Pro-Life Action Center, one of the event's sponsors, estimated the crowd size at 225,000 to 250,000 people, while D.C. police gave...

    Today marks the annual March for Life in Washington, DC. It’s bitter cold in the nation’s capital today, but the marchers are undeterred. They’re accustomed to being frozen out. They don’t get much media coverage, no matter how impressive their numbers. Their speakers don’t wind up on many evening news broadcasts, no matter how powerful their words. To the mainstream media, pro-lifers are pointlessly fighting a battle that ended in 1973. They might as well be re-enacting the Battle of Gettysburg in period costume. Their story is not newsworthy because it cannot end with a grand political climax that settles...
  • ABC, CBS, NBC Skip Pro-Life March; NPR Airs Abortionist Calling Pro-Lifers Terrorists

    As usual, ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored Friday’s March for Life protest. (Even the Associated Press skipped over the tens of thousands marching.) But the PBS NewsHour at least offered a brief from news anchor Hari Sreenivasan: Thousands rallied in Washington in the annual March For Life. It was the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion. The anti-abortion crowd rallied at the White House, and then moved on to the Supreme Court. A handful of abortion rights supporters were also present. NPR covered the trial on the murder of late-term abortionist George...
  • Why no coverage of the March for Life?

    NRO - The Corner ^ | 1/26/04 | Tim Graham
    Why no coverage of the March for Life? 1. Reporters are dramatically “pro-abortion rights.” One 1995 survey by Stanley Rothman and Amy Black found the number at 97 percent. 2. A corollary: the March is (appropriately) held on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, but liberal reporters probably see this interloping holiday protest as the civil rights equivalent of David Duke hosting a march on Martin Luther King’s birthday. How dare they wave their baby signs on Kate Michelman Day! 3. Unlike highly promoted anti-war rallies, pro-life marches show an embarrassingly huge mass of people marching for the wrong side....

    Thousands of Pro-Lifers Storm D.C. By Julia Duin Hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers protested the 37th anniversary of legalized abortion Friday, buoyed by polls and a recent Republican victory in Massachusetts that they said show public opinion may be finally swinging in their favor. "Do you realize you live in a majority pro-life country?" Sen. Sam Brownback, Kansas Republican, shouted to a crowd that filled four blocks of the National Mall from Seventh to 12th Street Northwest. "We are going to win this fight." Organizers estimated the crowd at the March for Life to number at least 200,000. A "virtual"...

    WASHINGTON – Organizers say some 300,000 people, mostly young, walked under overcast skies Friday to stand up for the preborn at the annual March for Life. They were joined by another 78,000 virtual pro-lifers, including former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who marched with them online in the first-ever Virtual March for Life. "Affirming the dignity and worth of every innocent human life and defending the defenseless are fundamental American values," Palin wrote Thursday in her Facebook page. "With that in mind, this peaceful, hopeful grassroots crowd of individuals, families and students comes to...

    In January 2009 we brought a six-man camera crew to Washington to create a documentary on the subject of the annual March for Life called Thine Eyes. What motivated Steve Sanborn, the organizer of the project and a March veteran, was the media's historic failure to capture the numbers, the demographics or the spirit of the marchers. With the advantage of rooftop cameras, we estimated there were about 350,000 participants, about 75 percent of whom were under 25, with more females than males among the young people. I also assigned our six cameramen to find as many pro-abortion protestors as...

    Hilarious Media Bias on March for Life Shhhh. 300,000+ people chanted, yelled and sung their way into Washington D.C. but somehow snuck past the mainstream media without their notice. Congratulations to the ordinary ministers of the media! Now, I could've missed it but after searching it seems to me that The New York Times completely ignored the throngs of people walking with signs towards the Capitol. I'm sure they would've been noticed if their signs mentioned Gitmo. MSNBC, according to their website, had no stories on the march. CBS News had nothing. And even when some of the ordinary ministers...
