CBS Radio affiliate ignores pro-lifers in ‘March for Life’ slideshow

Thousands and thousands of pro-life activists gathered on the National Mall Monday, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at one slideshow compiled by the CBS radio affiliates in Washington, D.C.

CBS Radio posted a slideshow after the rally, but all seven photos showed pro-choice activists, who were vastly outnumbered by their opponents. On Friday, after several days of incredulous comments on the slideshow’s Web page, seven more photos were added to the slideshow showing anti-abortion protesters.

“Huh, are you kidding: photos of the 20 defendants [sic] of Roe v Wade and nothing of the tens of thousands of people who gathered from all over the country to defend the right to life of the unborn?” asked one commenter.

“CBS, next time please send a photo journalist who wants to report the story not create it,” wrote another. “I was there in a sea of joyful youth all united to protect the unborn. But thanks for giving the handful of pro-abortion advocates their 15 minutes of fame. If it were not for your reporting, I would not have known they were there.”

The annual March for Life protested the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision 39 years ago.
