Blatant media bias seen in Komen-Planned Parenthood controversy

Catholic World News - February 06, 2012

New York Times columnist Ross Douthat has some trenchant observations on the remarkably one-sided media coverage of the furor over the Komen Foundation’s short-lived decision to stop its donations to Planned Parenthood. He notes:

Conservative complaints about media bias are sometimes overdrawn. But on the abortion issue, the press’s prejudices are often absolute, its biases blatant and its blinders impenetrable.
