Media yawns at pro-lifers, fawns over feminists

March for Life crowd 2Women poured into the streets over the weekend by the hundreds of thousands – some to support the unborn and others to protest the Trump administration and sexual assault – but the media mostly ignored one of those movements. 

ABC News was typical of the coverage, giving just 17 seconds to the annual March for Life that marked its 45th year vowing to overturn Roe v. Wade.

CBS News, meanwhile, ignored the Jan. 19 March for Life completely.

By stark contrast, the big three of CBS, NBC and ABC hailed the Jan. 20 Women's March as an outpouring of hatred for the President Donald Trump and his policies.

"Hundreds of thousands lined up side by side across the country," declared ABC News in one report.

'White Women' sign at Women's MarchMedia Research Center was recording and analyzing the predictable left-wing bias, and MRC spokesman Dan Gainor says the media almost completely missed a pretty big story that occurred at March for Life.

"Based on previous years it looked pretty darn big this time," he says of the crowd size. "And also - let's see - the President of the United States spoke at one and not at the other."

President Trump spoke from the Rose Garden (pictured below) to the March for Life, the first sitting president to address the crowd live, which makes the non-coverage from CBS News even more surprising.

Pres. Donald Trump (650 x 322)Gainor says the media's biased oversight is coloring American's views of the issues.

"What they're getting is that women's issues are only liberal issues," he complains. "You saw that with the march as well. Conservatives are not allowed there. If you're carrying pro-life signs they heckle you, they block you so that you're not appearing on camera."

The lunacy of the Left was on display, too, such as the decision by some feminists to stop wearing their pink hats because they discriminate against transgender men – men who think they are women.

TV cameras were rolling at the Women's March to record the vulgar and left-wing views of participants, including a purple-haired woman who stated that Trump should be killed and Vice President Mike Pence, too.

"Because I don't want him in office, either," she explained.  

In Los Angeles, a Palestinian Women's Group boycotted Saturday's march because organizers were allowing actress Scarlett Johansson to speak. Her crime? She plugged Soda Stream, an Israeli company, in TV commercials.

Although she is reliably liberal with many of her positions, the actor is Jewish and a strong supporter of Israel.
