CNN Barely Covered March for Life, But Hypes Much Smaller Earth Day Rally

Over the last few decades, the liberal media have celebrated Earth Day and used it to spread the gospel of green liberalism. CNN’s Sunday reporting was no exception as the network touted public figures headlining an Earth Day rally in Washington, D.C., like the city’s Democratic Mayor Vincent Gray and the rock band Cheap Trick.

However, for the March for Life rally in January that was attended by at least tens of thousands of pro-lifers, CNN gave it two brief mentions on-air. In contrast, while reportedly only hundreds showed up to celebrate Earth Day on the National Mall, CNN touted it as a “big rally” and covered it in-depth on Sunday afternoon, telling its viewers “we want you to know all about this.”

CNN prides itself on being a serious news network, but it submitted itself to being a simple megaphone for the Earth Day organizers. Correspondent Josh Levs admitted as much after airing a YouTube video that laid out the goals for the Earth Day movement.

    They don’t report news, they report the way they think things should be, and would be if only we conservative morons would let them do all our thinking for us the way the leftards do.

    BTW, I’ll believe they’re serious about “being kind to the planet” when they don’t leave their gathering sites looking like a toxic dumpsite. They’re giant children who were never taught to pick up after themselves.
