Supposed Journalists Accept Awards From Planned Parenthood
The media has largely ignored or downplayed the horrific Planned Parenthood videos which came to light this summer so it’s rather ironic that they’re accepting awards from the organization.
The message being sent here is clear: Protect Planned Parenthood, get rewarded by Planned Parenthood. Remember when journalists used to investigate and report on things?
Katie Yoder of NewsBusters has the story:
16 Journalists Accept Planned Parenthood Awards – Despite Horrifying Abortion Videos!
While the media stay away from the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts, they are drawn to Planned Parenthood’s annual media awards ceremony.
During Planned Parenthood’s Maggie Awards for Media Excellence Tuesday night, the abortion giant recognized 16 journalists for pushing “reproductive rights.” From Buzzfeed and Yahoo! to MSNBC, MRC Culture compiled a list of several prominent media attendees – and found a picture announcing the winners.
