A Tale of Two Marches

Friday there was a women led march that had 6 figures in attendance. The Fox News estimate was 650,000, all media estimates acknowledge 6 figures for the March for Life. Saturday another smaller march occurred, but with satellite marches including a huge march with an estimated 300,000 in Chicago for the Women’s March. The satellite marches were ignored for the March for Life.

The coverage difference says all you need to know about media bias. ABC, Fox News, CSPAN covered both reasonably not just a mention about one speaker. That gives me a hint who is real. Both were newsworthy events.

Americans exercising their first amendment freedoms of speech, assembly, and right to petition their government is beautiful to me. It would be even better if the press would live up to their job of facilitating the sharing and debate of ideas instead of being a gatekeeper of the ideas worthy if sharing.
