Because, as Jon Stewart wisely said, "conservative victimization" is the "true genius" of Fox News, the "fair & balanced" network is always ready to throw a pity party for these "victims." The party is really rocking if Fox can combine whatever grievance is being peddled with popular Fox memes relating to groups not popular in Foxworld - such as the evil, librul mainstream media. Every year, after the annual pro-life Washington DC march, those who seek to put American women in the express lane back to the dark ages support "life" whine about how the mainstream press doesn't give them the proper respect. Every year, Brent Bozell's anti-choice crusaders against librul media bias do an article about this travesty on Newsbusters. This year, alleged news anchor Bret Baier, sourced from this partisan site in a "news" item about how the marchers were ignored by the evil, librul press. It's been several months since the march but, whoops, Baier might have done it again!
On Monday night's "Grapevine," a segment in which Baier is able to present the agitrop in short, punchy soundbites, Baier had a little snippet titled "equal time." He reported that that the Washington Post gave almost the same amount of coverage to Sunday's earth day activities as it did for the "March for Life." He noted that the crowd at the Earth Day rally was much smaller, despite predictions, than that of the "Life" march and that both occured on rainy, cold days. And according to Baier, despite "several" reporters claim that there were tens of thousands of anti-choice march participants, the evil, librul Washington Post reported that there were only 17,000 participants for the March for Life.
While Baier didn't mention Newsbusters, it seems like more than coincidence that occasional Fox guest and uber conservative Tim Graham, put up a post, on Newsbusters, earlier in the day about this very topic. His description of the Earth Day gathering was sourced from the Washington Examiner which Baier also alluded to in citing predictions for turnout. While he didn't mention the March for Life, Graham attached a photo of the masses at this event. The connection with the March for Life was made, later in the day, by Newsbusters Matt Hadro who chastised CNN for having given the Earth Day thing far more coverage than the March for Life. The "tens of thousands" at the anti-choice march was cited by Vatican Radio, many Catholic news sources (Baier is one of many conservative Catholics in Ailes' stable), and Fox News' Shannon Bream.
So there you have it. A nice triple propaganda play. In addition to providing a shout out to its pro-life, GOP base, Fox "News" reinforced the meme that the evil, librul media disses those who are pro-life. And to put the icing on the cake (or the cheese with the whine), the environmental movement was portrayed as a bunch of sissies. But while Fox "News" does have a sweet (but strictly heterosexual, chaste, and very Christian) connection to Newsbusters, I can't say for sure if Baier's writers sourced them. But if they did, as the "Church Lady" would say "isn't that special."
