Planned Parenthood signA media watchdog group believes it knows why the Planned Parenthood video scandal received so little coverage from mainstream media.

The Media Research Center says Planned Parenthood has been awarding the media for pushing its agenda since 1978 by handing out 257 "Maggie Awards" - named after Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger - to media outlets and journalists for "media excellence." 

MRC's Katie Yoder says this award-based friendship has helped to create a pro-abortion culture in the media. For example, she notes that the Washington Post recently did a story on the front page of the Style section on #ShoutYourAbortion.

"#ShoutYourAbortion encourages women to tell positive experiences about their abortion, and the Washington Post has received some of these Maggie Awards,” she points out. “In contrast, the major media outlets aren't covering stories of women who regret their abortions."

She says if reporters want to be known for journalistic integrity, they need to give back their Maggie Awards and cut ties with Planned Parenthood.

"This isn't journalism – accepting awards from special interests, especially a taxpayer-funded organization that performs abortions and kills little babies," she tells OneNewsNow.

Yoder contends the media has been acting more as if it was Planned Parenthood's public relations firm.
