The evil and ignorant media continues to do their part to insure a high number of low information voters. From Laurie Higgins at IFI:
Yesterday, there was a rally in support of natural marriage at the Capitol Rotunda in Springfield.
Estimates of the numbers of attendees are between 3,000 and 5,000 — and this on a bitter cold winter day.
Last night, WGN News and FOX News Chicago at 9:00 p.m. had no stories about the rally.
ABC, NBC, and CBS at 10:00 p.m.—nothing.
But while no station covered the story of 3,000-5,000 Illinoisans descending on Springfield in opposition to the legalization of “same-sex marriage,” CBS had a story about coyotes surrounding a golden retriever in an affluent North Shore suburb, NBC had a story about Michelle Obama’s new portrait, and ABC had a story about Robin Roberts’ return to Good Morning America.
I awaited my morning Trib with bated breath…What, no story about a huge rally in support of natural marriage?
Was this story not newsworthy? Was it not at least as newsworthy as Michelle’s new portrait?
