The “March for Life” on the Mall Ignored by Media

Fox News’ Religion Contributor Father Jonathan Morris, has reported on the Fox News Blog that “an estimated 200,000 people marched on the Mall in Washington last week on Jan. 22nd in protest on the 36th anniversary of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling.”  

(Roe vs. Wade as you know is the ruling that has provided legal cover for the termination of more than 50,000,000 pregnancies in the United States over the past thirty-six years.) 

Well, what the good Father is also reporting is that the event received no media coverage and that his readers are plenty mad about it.  His readers on the blog have been e-mailing him with bitter complaints that basically go like this:

“Why has the liberal mainstream media once again refused to cover this event? After all, every year this march draws a huge crowd. And besides, aren’t the more than a million abortions every year a disgrace for our nation, by anyone’s standards?” — isn’t that news worthy.
