We know the mainstream media is biased against us.
But sometimes, they get things right! Here are a couple very recent examples:
Example 1. Last Thursday I was interviewed by Channel 7, the ABC affiliate in Chicago, outside the Will County Sheriff’s Office. This was right after a press conference about the fetal remains discovered at the home of deceased abortionist Ulrich Klopfer.
I talked to reporter Will Jones for several minutes, and they used a great clip for the end of the story — with the focus right where it belongs: on our solidarity with the unborn victims of Ulrich Klopfer. Check it out:
Example 2. Last Tuesday I did an interview with Reuters about some new abortion statistics from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. Reporter Ellen Wulfhorst gave me the last word in her article. I couldn’t have been more pleased!
Example 3. I’ve saved the best for last: a front page story in the Chicago Tribune about September 14th’s National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children.
I’m not quoted in the story, but my good friend Monica Miller is, and the Pro-Life Action League’s leadership in this national event was highlighted — along with some of the history behind the burials of aborted babies.
Yes, the media often twist our words or, worse, completely ignore us. And that causes some pro-lifers to give up on them.
But that’s a mistake. With a good story to tell, a diligent effort to tell that story, and a willingness to always be available for interviews, sometimes we can earn great media coverage.
The Pro-Life Action League reached hundreds of thousands, possibly even millions, of our fellow Americans last week thanks to these mainstream media stories.
How about that for some “great news”?
