If somehow you need a reminder as to how scummy and vile our news media actually is, all you have to do is look at how they treat the March For Life.
The March For Life is the largest annual human rights demonstration in the history of the world. It attracts hundreds of thousands of people in the dead of winter every year. Every. Single. Year. And they are marching right through the heart of DC, literally where the media lives, speaking out about one of the most divisive and contentious issues of our time. To call that “newsworthy” is a considerable understatement.
But the media goes into almost complete blackout mode. They either ignore it entirely or report on it briefly, as an aside, while blatantly lying about the number of people in attendance. The media is so terrified of the March For Life, and harbors such utter disdain for the point of view it represents, that they cannot even bring themselves to refer to it by its name. As you can see in the example below, they will only call it “the anti-abortion march.”
This has all been put into even starker contrast in 2017 because it just so happens that the week before there will be a pro-abortion “Women’s March” on Washington. Even though this march will have a significantly smaller turnout, the media has been reporting about it ad naseum. One can only imagine how much it will dominate the coverage on the actual day. And, as you can see, the very same newspapers that refuse to refer to the March For Life by name have no problem calling the pro-abortion march by its official (and misleading) title.
These people are liars and moral cowards. They deserve all of the contempt Trump shows them, and then some. And if you ever begin to doubt that, just turn on your TV on January 27, the day of the March For Life, and notice what they’re saying about the largest political demonstration of the year: nothing.
Check out the enthusiastic applause for Chayefsky’s reprimand of Vanessa Redgrave who had used her award speech time to make a political statement.
After CNN’s Jim Acosta twice shouted over the reporter Trump had called on, Trump’s press secretary told him if he behaved inappropriately and disrespectfully again, he would lose his seat in the press pool.
Spicer also said he would “absolutely not” kick out news groups for critical coverage.
No so Barack Obama.
In 2008, three reporters lost their seats on the Obama campaign plane because they worked for papers — Washington Times, the New York Post and the Dallas Morning News — that had endorsed McCain.
The Obama campaign said it was about a shortage of seats, but non-news rags like Ebony, Jet, and Glamour got to keep their seats.

“Okay, Trump isn’t really going to be pee-boarding anyone (darn it), but just because a story isn’t true is no reason not to report it. At least, in 2017 that seems to be the prevailing journalistic philosophy after a number of news outlets, with varying degrees of enthusiasm and hyperbole, published reports that the Russians were ready to blackmail Donald Trump with secret videos …
MEDIA HYPOCRISY: Here Are All The Times Obama Blamed Fox News For His Problems – Jan 12, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — During the Attorney General confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions on Tuesday, pro-abortion Sen. Dick Blumenthal said that the pro-life group Operation Rescue advocates violence against abortionists.
Immediately, Operation Rescue called for a retraction, pointing out that the Connecticut Democrat’s statement was “completely false and slanderous,” and demanded an apology.
“Operation Rescue has a long history of peaceful activism,” an Operation Rescue press release noted. “We call on Sen. Blumenthal to retract his false and slanderous statements and issue a public apology to Operation Rescue and [President] Troy Newman.”
Blumenthal also held up a “wanted” poster of abortionist George Tiller and falsely said it came from Operation Rescue. “This organization never circulated that poster, and never called for anyone to harm Dr. Tiller,” Operation Rescue’s statement responded.
Blumenthal also falsely accused Operation Rescue of defending Tiller’s murderer as a “political prisoner.” The group said in response, “Operation Rescue never made any such statement and has always been clear that murder or other violent acts are an unacceptable means of advocacy.”
Newman said Blumenthal “thinks he can lie about us with impunity and without consequences in order to advance his political agenda.” He added, “We are considering legal action to protect our good reputation.”
