The news blackout on the March for Life this year is truly astounding. So far, looking online with Google searches I have found one article that reports that 4,500 people were involved in the protest. 4500!!??!!?? Meanwhile this report from the Associated Press and this report from AFP and this report from the BBC simply report that there were ‘thousands’. What??!! Come now ye accurate and professional journalists, tell us how many thousands. The Washington Post is better, reporting ‘tens of thousands’ and reporting that there were over 20,000 young people at the Verizon Center.
I was there, and there were actually over 25,000 in the Verizon center youth rally all went on the march, and the crowd of young people was so large they had overflow in the Constitution Hall, and when that crowd of 25,000 arrived at the Mall they were joined by many many more.
When I stood on a platform at the front of the Mall to see how far back the crowd went I couldn’t see the back of the crowd. 4,500???!! ‘thousands’??!! How many were really there?
I realize that an annual protest loses somewhat of it’s news interest, but the total non interest makes you wonder just what is reported, and what is not reported in the news. The larger issue is one of trust in our media sources. If an event like this is so widely and profoundly ignored, if there is such obvious bias and under reporting of a genuine phenomenon you have to ask just what the media is about. Without being too paranoid-conspiracy-theorist it causes me to worry very deeply about the subtle and insidious nature of our media control centers.
Soviet Russian and Communist China and Nazi Germany were known for their propaganda campaigns. They went in for five story high billboards, blatant propaganda and obvious inyerface lies. Our own atheist, secular genocidal media people are far more effective, far more subtle, far more professional in their manipulation of the media. They simply ignore or promote whatever they wish us to know, and so the mind control of the unsuspecting citizen is neat, tidy and complete.
