CBS NEWS REPORTS ON ABORTION

The Washington Post on Thursday carried a front page story featuring predictable criticism of Catholic hospitals for prohibiting abortion—or “reproductive care,” as the Orwellian liberal paper called it. Inside the paper, on page 3, was a short story from Associated Press with a curious headline: “Murder charges for abortion provider.” The placement of these stories is a concrete example of pro-abortion media bias in action.
Of course, abortion IS murder to the hundreds of thousands who will be gathering in Washington, D.C. on Monday for the annual “March for Life.” GE’s ultrasound machine showing life in the womb has proven beyond doubt that the “product of conception” is indeed a human being. Still, many in the liberal media do not want to face up to the facts.
If history is any guide, the Post can be expected to bury a story about the March for Life rally in the Metro section of the paper.
