CBS and WaPo Omit Chen Guangcheng’s Crime in China: He’s Pro-Life!!!
I guess they don’t want to accidentally imply any sort of disapproval with Communist China’s forced abortion and mass sterilization laws. After all, we wouldn’t want Americans to find out what really goes on in communist countries, now would we? Nor, would we want to expose the United Nations’ Agenda 21…
Sheesh! Even a blind Chinaman can see as plain as day that abortions and forced sterilizations are wrong! As the saying goes, “There are none so blind as those who will not see.”
Kudos to Timothy P. Carney of the Washington Examiner who isn’t taking this lying down and calls the Lame Stream Media to task:
Post ignores forced abortion on Chen case
by Timothy P. Carney- Washington Examiner
Is Chen Guangcheng a rebel without a cause?
Chen Guangcheng is a Chinese “dissident” and a “lawyer” who was jailed by the Chinese government and held in house arrest after his sentence, until he escaped over the weekend, presumably to U.S. custody.
You’ll learn all that from this 1300-word Washington Post story today, but you’ll never learn why the Communist Chinese regime wanted to silence him — that he has exposed the horrors of China’s one-child policy, including forced abortions and forced sterilizations.
Honestly. Search the article. “Abortion” never appears. Nor does “one-child” “family-planning,” or “sterilization.”
Of the five Post news articles I found discussing Chen, only one of them has the word “abortion.”
The Post wasn’t the only one to make this weird omission. CBS News’s Norah O’Donnell doesn’t mention abortion, sterilization, or the one-child policy at all.
Others simply buried this detail, making sure to describe Chen generically as a “legal activist”
Reuters, in the 13th paragraph, mentions that Chen “campaigned against abortions forced under China’s ‘one child’ policy.”
I think pretty early this week, the media will begin to feel more comfortable discussing the substantive matters at hand – forced abortions and forced sterilizations. But for now, those ugly issues are too hot for our media handle, it appears.Explore posts in the same categories: Abortion, Media Bias, politics
