Media manipulation--Women's March, January 21

I don't know how many minutes the media gave to the women's march yesterday--but it was a lot. I only saw what was on Fox and they certainly provided a lot of coverage.  Like they'd never heard of such an event. And yet it has happened every year since 1974 to memorialize those babies who have died and the women who have suffered grief, suicide and higher rates of cancer in the name of "health care for women" or "women's rights." The 2011 and 2012 marches drew an estimated 400,000 each, whereas the 2013 march drew an estimated 650,000. It is also held in multiple cities, just like the copy cat event yesterday. 

I started watching this about 5 years ago on EWTN, the only channel that actually covers the speakers and prayer vigils. But I'd never heard of it before then. Huge turn out from young people of all Christian groups, not just Catholics. And they are polite, they don't shout vulgarities, burn trash and cars in the street and smash Starbucks windows.

The media manipulate you. Demand better. They are on the air to produce wealth for their owners and advertisers. If you don't know it is happening, then it isn't. Unfortunately, many churches are just as silent as the media.

perhaps in time and sooner than we fear-there will be no media only what our govt says we can watch. Then you will be glad to n only watch Fox and no other point of view. Dictators are not much for religious TV I would think. Best of luck with managed news.All signs for a hurry get us there Celebrate that

If media manipulation was ever your concern, did you speak out about the fawning, sycophant behavior of the media as they drooled over Obama? Fox is one network.
