LISTEN NOW! WATCH FULL PROGRAM! It is so important to not only know what is going on around the world, and in the nation, it is also vitally important to receive an accurate perspective about today’s current events. It’s not enough just to know the news; we have to know God’s news behind the news. We have begun a new season and it’s important that we change our language to walk in agreement with what God is doing. By listening solely to secular media, we are not going to get the full story, or receive a Biblical perspective about what is happening. This couldn’t be more applicable than considering how the mainstream media covered the events of the 2010 March for Life.
Steve Sanborn did an outstanding job when he revealed how the biased media portrayed the 2010 March for Life in such a jaded, and slanted point-of-view. Looking back at the 2009, March, Sanborn points out how their 6-person camera crew looked for any Pro-Choice demonstrators they could find. At the end of the events, they found none. Yet, as Sanborn revealed, “USA Today managed to find a handful”, and it was an image of these “handful” that made the front page image of the events. To accurately report how the events unfolded, March for Life used rooftop cameras to capture the massive crowds snaking through the streets. “Our rooftop cameras captured counted nearly 350,000.” But, that’s not all.
Sanborn continues to point out how the biased media covered the event when he looks at how CNN reported the 2010 March. “CNN gave that same pathetic, handful of pro-aborts, top billing.” The picture that CNN used captured five different pro-abortion demonstrators. Sanborn sarcastically repeats the words of CNN’s response; “As I look at these signs”, asked CNN’s Rick Sanchez, on air, “which side is represented the most? Do we know?” Sanborn brings attention to Newsweek’s reporting that went above and above CNN’s reporting. CNN’s headline? “Who’s Missing at the ‘Roe v. Wade’ Anniversary Demonstrations? Young Women.”
As Sanborn accurately reveals what took place, he allows the crowd to speak freely into the mic and share their own thoughts. When one young woman was asked how many people she perceived to be at the 2010 March for Life, she stated, “I’m not good at estimating, but there are a lot of people.” Her response paints an image that would far outnumber a circle of “five people”. Another young woman shares her response as to why she is part of the March. “I’m marching, because, as a teacher in this generation, we bring our kids every year to be an example, to try and change the world and change the nation.” One young woman expresses her support of life as she holds an adorable toddler in her arms. ‘I was forced to face this choice to decide to choose life and I just want to say that, it’s just very important to value life because it’s the most important thing.’
When we look at how mainstream media covers these events we have to ask why so many people are adamant about killing the population of our nation? When Donald Trump was running for President, he boldly declared how he supported life and did not support abortion. If we don’t honor life in the womb, people will not honor any life, regardless of what age it is. God values ALL life, including the life of the unborn that is still inside the wombs of pregnant mothers at this very moment. Make sure to see the overwhelming crowds of those supporting life, hear the many interviews, and so much more.
