Yesterday I attended “One Life LA,” the first Los Angeles, California, Walk for Life. The event started at Olvera Street, the famous Downtown Pueblo de Los Angeles historic monument dating back to Spanish California. About 15,000 people attended. The purpose of the walk was to show Los Angeles that life is precious and should be protected from conception to natural death as Archbishop Jose Gomez, and many other speakers mentioned in their talks. As I predicted, the main stream media completely ignored it. EWTN, a Catholic Television Network, televised the talks live, but no other media showed up.
Later that evening, as I was heading to church, I was listening to KNX News Radio in my car. Among the things of the day that they reported was that about two dozen marched in honor of Martin Luther King Holiday in Long Beach, No mention of the 15,000 people in Downtown Los Angeles marching for life. This morning, the Los Angeles Times failed to even mention the event. Now, compare this to when a couple of dozen anarchists, bent on violence and destruction, showed up in Downtown Los Angeles, not long ago, demonstrating against the Police killings of two black men in New York and Ferguson, Missouri. For a month the nightly news was filled with marauding hoodlums and news reporters interviewing people on the street about why they were there. But, when an event that the leftist media (all media except Fox News Channel), disapproves of or does not comport with their world view, then they just ignore it. Whenever a few hundred people gather for an immigration rally, something the leftist media loves, they’re all over it, but when 15,000 pro-life people have and event, they just look the other way. They have eyes to see, but they don’t see; they have ears to hear, but they don’t hear.
