VIDEO: President Trump calls out mainstream media for failing to cover March for Life
January 26, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – During a Wednesday night interview with ABC, President Trump called out the media for covering a pro-abortion march but ignoring the March for Life.
ABC's David Muir asked Trump if he "could hear the voices from the women’s march here in Washington?"
"I couldn’t hear them, but the crowds were large," Trump responded. "You’re gonna have a large crowd on Friday, too, which is mostly pro-life people. You’re gonna have a lot of people coming on Friday, and I will say this, and I didn’t realize this, but I was told, you will have a very large crowd of people. I don’t know – as large or larger – some people say it’s gonna be larger. Pro-life people. And they say the press doesn’t cover them."
Muir quickly said he didn't want to compare crowd sizes.
"What they do say is that the press doesn’t cover them," said Trump.
Friday's March for Life is the 44th annual gathering demanding human rights for the pre-born. It is the largest annual American civil rights demonstration.
A recent study by Katie Yoder of NewsBusters revealed that the networks covered the 2017 pro-abortion women's march 129 times more than the 2016 March for Life.
