Jan. 22 — Verizon FIOS News — Lower Hudson Valley sent out a crew to cover the gathering of prolife supporters in Spring Valley, who gathered outside Planned Parenthood on Perlman Drive to pray. It was on Jan. 22, the true anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in 1973 to legalize abortion in America. (The March for Life this year was on Friday, Jan. 19).
Good for FIOS! Unlike the Journal News/USA Today who didn’t print a word about any March for Life events, but had plenty to say about the Women’s March that took place the next day. And, as usual, the three major TV networks combined — CBS, ABC, and NBC– had less than three minutes of coverage of the March. CBS had nothing at all.
Well, it’s nice to know that balanced journalism is still alive somewhere around here — at local FIOS news.
(update 1/28/18) The Journal News (Lo-Hud) has since published an article with extensive remarks from five marchers, March for Life 2018: 5 People Share Their Vision of the Future. Print story appeared 1/27/18; online 1/26/18.
