Media bias has been documented in a variety of ways but it is always worth pointing to one more rather egregious way that the media deliberate misstates the truth (what we ordinarily call a lie). In nearly every year since the March for Life began, the count of those who marched for the cause has been minimized in order to promote their own bias for the pro-choice movement and to discourage support for the pro-life cause. When the media is in support of something, they routinely exaggerate the size of those gathered in favor of the issue or cause and when the media does not support something they routinely diminish the numbers of the supporters of that issue or cause. We all know that and yet nothing could be so obvious than to state the numbers of anti-abortion activists as more than a thousand when by every other estimate the numbers were more than 100,000!!! In some years, when weather is kinder to a January march in Washington, DC, the numbers of well exceeded 500,000. But that would give the whole pro-life movement more credibility and USA Today, among other media organizations fully in bed, so to speak, with the pro-choice movement, could hardly contribute to something which might give more legitimacy to the pro-life cause. No, it could not.
Watch this video and see if there were more than a thousand or more than one hundred thousand!!!
