Media should focus more on abortions

In response to the Aug 19, ‘Others’ Opinion: The racial divide is on display in Missouri’; note the typical media summation: “…. it is not too soon to see the death of Michael Brown as a sign that this country needs to have a deeper, more productive discussion about the racial issues that plague the Missouri suburb and too many other American cities — including some in Minnesota.”

I agree more discussion is needed. Go to You Tube and view “Black man goes on epic rant against Ferguson rioters.” He brings up the question whether it’s really about racial issues or “personal responsibility” issues, and does a dramatic job of pointing out the hypocrisy of the media and civil rights leaders, i.e. dozens of shootings in Chicago and other places, a little girl shot to death in gang crossfire, etc. and their response to it.

The ADH Aug 21 cartoon depicts Uncle Sam with the caption “The race we still struggle with….Prejudice, Discrimination, Bigotry.” There is a class of people the media has been ignoring for over 40 years; these people are subjected to extreme torture and killings, i.e. decapitation, dismemberment and poisoning. 56 million dead so far. See one of them on You Tube; “Eclipse of Reason.” When will the media stop discriminating against the defenseless children being processed through America’s abortion mills?

In the name of journalistic fairness, shouldn’t the little ones be given news coverage too?
