If you ever had a doubt in your mind about the mainstream media being biased, this should remove that doubt very quickly.
The broadcast news shows covered Cecil the lion more in one day than they spent on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks – and that discrepancy only continues to grow.
In two days, ABC, NBC and CBS have spent 30 minutes, 1 second on Cecil, a famed African lion shot by an American dentist. But anchors couldn’t spare nearly as much time for the videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby parts. Since the release of the Center for Medical Progress’ first video two weeks ago, the networks have spent only 11 minutes, 13 seconds on the story.
NBC’s Today host Matt Lauer commented, “Dr. Palmer is getting it from every corner. The outrage is enormous. Social media, the front page of newspapers, celebrities weighing in.”
Imagine if he could say the same about babies “picked” apart by tweezers.
Here’s the breakdown of Cecil coverage by the network news shows:
Tuesday evening: 5 minutes, 44 seconds
Wednesday morning: 8 minutes, 17 seconds.
Wednesday evening: 5 minutes, 26 seconds
Thursday morning: 10 minutes, 34 seconds
