This is original work from Verum Serum. They contrast the mainstream media’s reporting of the Georger Tiller killing with the killing of pro-life activist Jim Pouillon.
Of course there has been real right-wing extremism, most notably the murder of abortionist George Tiller last Summer. That shouldn’t be ignored or minimized. On the other hand, there was another killing not long after which received a lot less attention. Jim Pouillon, a long time pro-life advocate, was shot three times through the pro-life sign he was holding by a stranger who was irritated by his message.
How bad is the media bias in the reporting of the two killings?
|News Outlet||Tiller’s murder (stories/words)||Pouillon’s murder (stories/words)||Ratio|
|LA Times||At least 10 stories totaling 8,286 words.||Three stories totaling 423 words.||19.5:1|
|NY Times||At least 17 stories and three editorials totaling 21,430 words.||Five full stories and one partial story totaling 3935 words.||5.4:1|
|Time||At least 9 stories totaling 4,838 words.||No mention of Jim Pouillon at all.||5,000:0|
|Washington Post||At least 15 stories and one editorial plus 5 AP dispatches totaling 12,002 words.||Three AP stories totaling 981 words. Original reporting = 0.||12.2:1|
Newsweek didn’t mention the Pouillon killing at all, just like Time.
There’s a lot more to their post, and you can read the rest here. This is a very original and informative post.
I recommend that people exercise caution when buying magazines like Time and Newsweek. They’re hard left, so you aren’t getting all the news. You are just getting all the news that fits their narrative.
