Accuracy in Media

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly criticized the liberal media for showing their pro-choice bias in their coverage of the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado by calling pro-lifers’ comments on the tragedy “angry rhetoric.”

Kelly played a montage of members of the liberal media repeatedly referring to the “angry rhetoric” coming from the right on the issue, and asked MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz, “Is this not evidence of the bias in some of these reporters who see––who are on the pro-choice side and think any expression of the anti-abortion, the pro-life stance, is angry rhetoric?” Kelly was referring to the use of the term “baby killer,” which, she pointed out, is what pro-lifers believe abortion is.

Kurtz responded by saying that the media need to be careful about giving an uncritical megaphone to people who make this bogus link and cited the “disturbing” rhetoric from the left, adding that the guilt-by-association types incorrectly blame the anti-abortion, defund Planned Parenthood backers for the actions of a madman with a gun.

Kelly ended the segment by calling out the liberal media for dismissing what “half of the country genuinely believes and what science is providing a lot of evidence for.” She said it is detrimental to the dialogue between both sides, adding that it seems like a “no brainer” to classify the shooting as an act of domestic terrorism.

That may be true, but the liberal media are so focused on their pro-choice, anti-gun narrative that they couldn’t care less about the effect their bias has on the overall debate.
