Strange, that

It seems that there were nation-wide protests with thousands at locations like Detroit, all protesting the Obama Administration's decision to force churches to pay for abortions.  Some how, I don't recall this being reported very widely.

Instead, this was:
Protesting the Vatican’s criticism of the United States’ largest organization of Roman Catholic nuns, a group of people gathered outside the annual spring meeting of U.S. bishops in Atlanta on Wednesday and delivered a petition asking the bishops to intervene on the nuns’ behalf.

The Nun Justice Project, made up of several Catholic groups, began coordinating nationwide vigils for nuns after the Vatican reprimanded the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in April for “serious doctrinal problems” that included promoting “radical feminist themes.”
See, that's how you do it.  Some news is more equal than other news.  It's almost like you can predict what will and won't be reported, based on a presumption of liberal media bias.

Nah, that's crazy talk.

I'm getting most of my news tips from blogs now. Even CNN has gone dont the rabbit hole to much.

The mainstream media are on the other side. Everything they do is agitprop for the Democrat (liberal, progressive, you get what I mean) party.

If you never lose sight of that fact, nothing they do — or don't do — will come as a surprise.

Just view their product as noise or disinformation, and you'll be much better informed.

Anon, that's a very interesting way to phrase it.

I had a bumper sticker that read "I don't believe The Post" back in the '80s.
