h/t American Papist
It is quite astonishing that the media continue to ignore the March for Life, which this year drew over 300,000 people, over half of whom were under 30 years of age. Where were the young women? one reporter asked. Obviously he didn't look very far, since the photo he submitted to The Washington Post was a tiny group of five pro-choice protestors.
And Rick Sanchez of CNN wondered out loud "which side there were more of"; obviously he didn't look closely at the crowd. Because it was totally obvious that the handful of pro-choice people were simply that, a handful while the pro-life crowd filled the streets and just kept coming.
The other media story worth noting is the efforts being made by pro-choice advocates to have CBS pull the forthcoming Superbowl ad featuring Tim Tebow, a college football superstar, who shares the pro-life story of how his mother refused the medical advice to abort him when she contracted amoebic dysentery in the Phillipines. It looks as if CBS is going to stand firm and air the ad, which has been completely paid for by specific donations to Focus on the Family.

If CBS airs the ad, good for them since last year the pro-life ad "Imagine the Potential" was not aired during the Superbowl, but has received millions of views on YouTube.

Eventually, the mainline media is going to have to give due attention to what is going on in pro-life news, because they are simply getting outnumbered.
I read with interest that this past week, Fox News has surpassed CNN in the number of Americans who trust it to deliver primetime news. Fox has moved into first place, while the other outlets have dropped their ratings as people realise that their reporting is so biased, leaning always toward the left and endorsing the current Democratic government. Listen closely, you will hear the sounds of cracks breaking open the truth. Good news indeed.
