Since 2012, according to the New York Times, 138 people have been killed by guns at school in the United States.
Since 2012, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 6 MILLION babies were killed by abortion in the United States. In 2012 alone there were roughly 690,000 abortions. And those are only the abortions that have been reported as per the CDC’s lax guidelines. In other words, there are about 2,000 abortions a day in the US alone.
The mainstream media has long crafted an apathy toward non-leftist ideas.
And the imbalance is quantifiable. Take for instance the media coverage of the recent “March For Our Lives” protest in comparison to coverage of the annual “March for Life” protest --- an anti-abortion protest that has taken place for 45 years in multiple cities. According to a quantitative content analysis by the Media Research Center, "the broadcast networks covered the March for Our Lives 13 times more than the pro-life march, the night of each event."
The mainstream media won’t mention these numbers.
The study found that ABC, CBS and NBC averaged nearly half an hour --- 28 minutes, 23 seconds --- covering the March For Our Lives event. The same networks averaged 2 minutes, 6 seconds covering March for Life.
The mainstream media won’t mention these numbers. Instead, they’ll hand over the microphone to rage-driven teenagers acting like prophets, and pretend like they aren’t behind the narrative.
At this point, it’s not even a matter of balancing the tables so that conservative voices have equal opportunity to speak. They have made it clear. They’ve said, “We don’t care about conservative voices at all.”
