CNN coverage hypes Earth Day, ignores March for Life
Catholic World News - April 24, 2012
The Media Research Center notes that CNN television broadcasts gave enormous coverage to Earth Day observations in Washington, after having virtually ignored the March for Life.
Tens of thousands of pro-lifers participated in the March for Life in January, but drew only two short on-air mentions from CNN. But Earth Day—which found only a few hundred people surrounding to the National Mall—was given extensive coverage, with a cheerleading reporter on the scene and an anchor telling viewers that “we want you to know all about this."
