Washington Post ombudsman defends coverage of March for Life
January 31, 2012
Responding to complaints from pro-life activists, the ombudsman for the Washington Post has examined the paper’s coverage of the March for Life, and found it generally good:
It was evenhanded, unbiased and informative — exactly what Postcoverage of this difficult issue should be.
The ombudsman does allow that the Post coverage should have included photos that showed the enormous crowd of participants at the March. And he faults one reporter for using the term “antiabortion ideology.” But it is the term “ideology,” not the pejorative “antiabortion,” that bothers him.
