BOO TO MOST mainstream media outfits for not covering the interfaith pro-life rally at the PICC grounds yesterday.
A very conservative estimate of the rally’s attendees is 2,000. CBCP News estimates it to have been 5,000. [Photos of the event]
Attended by various groups, including Muslims, Catholics, and some Christian denominations, the rally was among the pro-life block’s largest.
What else do we have in the news today?
- 50 workers urging legislators to pass the RH bill [GMA News Online]
- Pres. Aquino’s flip-flopping attitude to the bill [GMA News Online]
- Pres. Aquino’s lack of plans on population growth [ABS-CBN News]
The last two stories are acceptable, even with their very brief mention of yesterday’s rally. But the first? GMA News Online chose to publish a 343-word story about a rally with 50 attendees instead of a rally with thousands.
–Wait, did you say “bias”?
