“We expect it to be a very powerful and moving morning,” the CNN “reporter” gushes. Yes, well, there’s going to be a lot of that today, as the mainstream media focuses on the March for Life nationwide Children’s Crusade. “It’s an extraordinary sight,” CNN anchor Fred Whitfield enthuses. Well, no. Not really. In fact . . .
The March for Our Lives coverage is just another example of the mainstream media’s long history of promoting civilian disarmament. The scope and scale of this wall-to-wall love fest may be unprecedented, but the tone and content is the same. With one exception . . .
The usual media suspects feel little to no need to balance the gun grabbers’ open mic day with a pro-gun rights perspective.
While the NRA’s been uploading anti-March videos on their NRA TV channel, there’s no official spokesperson appearing on CNN and the major news nets or within the pages of The New York Times.
The nation’s oldest civil rights organization is staying stum. Hoping this “movement” turns out to be a damp squib, as the kids’ anti-gun animus fades into history.
Meanwhile, the “highlight” of this coverage will come when teenagers address a huge crowd gathered in Washington, D.C. Expect much petulance, anger, bloody shirt waving and self-righteous high-fiving. And that’s just from the media.
