Methinks the media protest too much

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jan 17, 2014

If someone stands on a public sidewalk, praying quietly, and occasionally offering help to passersby, what do you call her?

A protester.

Check the 2nd photo (scroll down a bit) in this Wall Street Journal story about the McCullen v. Coakley Supreme Court case. And this is the Wall Street Journal; many other papers are far more biased in their coverage.

When a Boy Scout helps an old lady cross the street, what is he protesting?
