Deaf, Dumb, and Blind Media
As the year draws to a close and a new one begins, we reprint a commentary from September to remind us that we must continue to fight the atrocities of Planned Parenthood. In this coming year, let us resolve to never let up, to never lose sight of our goal, and to pray fervently for all preborn babies.
Planned Parenthood is worried about the media finding out that it is actually marketing the body parts and cells of preborn babies once those children are aborted.
Yet, according to one professional news monitoring organization, the media are staunchest allies Planned Parenthood has in this public relations struggle to bury the truth exposed in these videos. Media Research Center’s president, Brent Bozell, recently made this statement:
A Planned Parenthood official repeatedly refers to the aborted fetus as a “cadaver.” Webster’s defines “cadaver” as a “dead body.” Are the news media so pro-abortion that they will refuse to report that this Planned Parenthood official is admitting unequivocally that this baby was alive before he or she was killed?
“The failure of the network news media to cover the latest grisly video of Planned Parenthood is outrageous. . . . Everything from babies being stuffed into containers inside freezers to lab techs picking through a dish of baby body parts like they would a salad, is a taxpayer funded monstrosity and the so-called “news” media have a responsibility to cover it. Possible illegal acts are described and perpetrated on video and no one in the network media is curious enough to report on it? They are gutless wonders who are helping to cover up abominable, diabolical, Nazi-like medical procedures on the tiniest members of the human family.
And that’s not even half of it. Investigative journalism is at the heart of David Daleiden’s work, as evidenced in the Center for Medical Progress’ video series that currently numbers 10 episodes. The mainstream media has been brutal toward Daleiden. One writer defines his work as mere “anti-abortion propaganda,” telling his audience: “One of the underreported aspects of the current smear campaign against Planned Parenthood is the coarsening and polarizing of our civil discourse that usually accompanies discussions of the culture wars. This has been especially glaring because the ongoing barrage of false and inflammatory language directed at Planned Parenthood and its staff by anti-abortion groups.”
Note the buzzwords he uses to reject the truth as if it were a disease. Arguing with language like “smear campaign,” “false and inflammatory language,” and so on, the writer reveals something as plain as the nose on his face. He dislikes Daleiden’s work because he is threatened by it, yet he cannot find factual reasons to support his negative attitude so he resorts to name calling—an activity as old as the serpent himself who deceived Eve in Garden of Eden.
Having said that, I am grateful to at least one fair-minded writer who reminded us that Daleiden needs our prayers. In fact, his column’s title shared that very sentiment: “Pope Francis, Please Pray for the Gutsy David Daleiden.”
Maybe the media cannot bring itself to honestly report the facts because so many members of the elite press know that telling the truth would bring Planned Parenthood down in a heartbeat.
While the deaf, dumb, and blind media bury their heads in the sands of moral bankruptcy, the good guys will persist.
Truth offers no apology and is never cowed by the evil it confronts.
Support David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress by praying for them and by spreading the truth that those videos have shown.
Planned Parenthood will end. Its war on women and babies is doomed.
