LOPSIDED: Pro-Aborts Swamp Pro-Lifers (153-57) in Network Supreme Court Leak Stories

The leaking of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion, suggesting the Supreme Court will overturn Roe V. Wade, sent the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network anchors, reporters and producers into a frenzy.

They showcased the most ardent pro-abortion voices on their evening and morning news programs, while pro-life advocates were barely heard from, often set-up as oppressors out to “deny women their rights.”

These viewers were three times more likely than pro-life supporters like Senator Mitch McConnell or Live Action founder Lila Rose to view these pro-abortion advocates, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson.

CBS featured most pro-abortion advocates (61)There were only 17 pro-life voices. NBC aired 53Pro-abortion supporters 27 pro-life advocates. ABC aired 39 Abortion supporters to just 13 pro-lifers. 



Viewers were far more likely to see pro-abortion voices like Hillary Clinton criticize  conservatives. The May 5 CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell let the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee rail as she “warned about” overturning Roe “in the campaign” as she “could see that the man I was running against would literally do anything to getThe votes cast by the extremist faction of Republican Party who were willing to totally upend precedent and deny women their rights.” Clinton added “This [Alito]The dark side of opinion. It’s extremely dangerous.” 

It is amazing that both the pro-life movement as well as conservative Republicans managed to nominate justices such Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, given the obstruction and injustice that were faced by abortion opponents from the leftist media.
