A Call to Action
Citing a dire need for honest reporting, Live Action has organized a “March on the Media” campaign to call out the “big three” American news networks: ABC, CBS, and NBC.
“Like it or not, the major news networks have huge influence in our country,” said Lila Rose, President of Live Action. “Millions of Americans get a sense of the world through national filters like ABC, CBS, and NBC. So it’s inexcusable when these networks, in whom so much public trust is invested, refuse to report the facts on one of the most pressing human rights issues of our time.”
Rose’s organization is showcasing a slew of reports by the Media Research Center on selective and biased reporting of the abortion issue, from the Kermit Gosnell trial to Wendy Davis’s filibuster against the recently passed House Bill 2, which regulates abortion in Texas.
“The media has flinched from the reality of abortion for decades,” Rose said, “but the degree to which they mischaracterize and whitewash this issue has become egregious lately. How can you go on about a senator’s sneakers and completely ignore the reason you’re talking about those shoes in the first place: because she’s championing a procedure that literally tears helpless children to pieces and puts women’s lives and health in extreme danger?”
Rose says she wants to point the media in a new direction. “A change is long overdue for our big news distributors,” she said. “It’s time for these networks to end their blackout of the truth on abortion – how it irreparably harms women, babies, and society.
ABC, CBS, NBC:
It’s time to tell the truth.
Time to stop flinching from the facts of abortion.
Time to end the censorship,
and the bias.
To this end, the pro-life advocacy group is launching a multifaceted initiative to call attention to how the media reports on the abortion issue, including a petition drive, and open letters to the networks. The “March on the Media” campaign will also include rallies outside major media outlet headquarters – scheduled for the near future.
