This morning, Glenn told his radio audience about a story on TheBlaze.com on the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Race for The Cure. Enrollment numbers are down following the Planned Parenthood controversy, and, as usual, the mainstream media has kicked their spin machine into high gear.
Glenn explained the controversy in a nutshell to listeners this morning. Basically, Susan G. Komen had been donating $600k a year to Planned Parenthood, and when someone decided to double that number to $1.2 million, someone else within the organization spoke out against it and the money to Planned Parenthood was canceled. The Susan G. Komen Foundation then fired that person, who canceled the money, and doubled the money to Planned Parenthood. Because of this, they have taken a big hit in their fundraising and their Race for The Cure Enrollment is down to about half – 77,000 people to 44,000 people.
Of course, that’s not exactly how the mainstream media is reporting it.
CBS is making it sound like there has been some hit on the numbers from the controversy – but they’re reporting that people are upset because the money going to Planned Parenthood was cut, not because they fired the person who wanted it cut and then doubled the money to Planned Parenthood.
“So they're still, they're not mad that they went back on their word and gave them the money anyway. They're not mad about that,” Pat said. “They're mad about the fact that they almost dissed Planned Parenthood in the first place. That's what they're angry about.”
Make sense? There’s more.
They’re also blaming it on people just not being as charitable as they usually are.
“Really? Really? That's what it is?” Glenn asked. “What a lie.”
