“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Media Bias, Again...

I think I have made the point pretty well that their is an extreme liberal bias toward Sarah Palin in the mainstream media. Here is a story I could not help but to post to show one more example.

Today, many major newspapers, here is the Boston Globe, cited a poll the dealt with how woman perceive Governor Palin.

"...59 percent of female voters say McCain picked the first-term Alaska governor "out of political considerations," while only 20 percent say he chose her based on experience on qualifications. That's the reverse of how female voters regard Obama's choice of Joe Biden, the poll found.

...And told about her position on abortion -- she opposes it even in cases of rape and incest -- 56 percent said that gave them a less favorable view of Palin."

Now, who is behind this reputable poll? Is it Rasmussen? Is it Zogby? It is Gallup? No, not quite. It is Emily's List, one of the most militant pro-abortion organizations in America. You can tell they had an agenda by the last comment above. But newspapers ran with it as if it was objectively data driven. I would ask the Boston Globe and other newspapers, would they ever cite a poll on gun control financed by the N.R.A.?

Emily's list is very valuable.

If you consult it an vote for the opponents of those that Emily's list endorses you know you are voting for the more pro-life candidate.

I would suggest you go to the NRTL website for their ratings and don't contribute any hits on Emily's list. Why wade through the sewage over there?
