I talk a lot about media partisanship here. Let me give you the latest reason why, courtesy of Katie Yoder\’s blog at

The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood\’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts — censored it at Planned Parenthood’s urging. But the news shows did find more than 14 minutes for a more important story: the “outrage” over the shooting of Cecil, a famed African lion, by an American dentist.

Tuesday, the networks spent 5 minutes, 44 seconds during their evening news shows on Cecil — and that\’s not even counting the teasers. Wednesday morning, ABC, NBC and CBS lamented over the lion for 8 minutes, 17 seconds.

But they couldn\’t do the same for a story of babies “picked” apart by tweezers.

Regardless of your position on abortion, this should tell you everything you need to know about how today\’s mainstream media puts partisanship – its preference for one side of an issue – over journalism.

And it\’s not the only one today. Stay tuned for the next blog.
