Planned Parenthood tells media to stay silent on the latest undercover video

Silence, Free Speech, 1st Amendment

According to LiveActionNews, Planned Parenthood’s latest tactic is an attempt to silence the media.

Politico is reporting that Planned Parenthood hired SKDKnickerbocker to help manage blowback from the videos, which were produced by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress.

According to Politico, SKDKnickerbocker sent the memo to unnamed “reporters and producers,” asking them to blackball the videos — the third of which was released on Tuesday.

Predictably, some media outlets are more cooperative than others:

The Huffington Post has not published anything about the third video, despite the fact that the scandal continues to trend on both Facebook and Twitter. Neither has Vox, Buzzfeed, Salon, Slate, or MSNBC.

Given the Liberal narrative of the mainstream media, it isn’t shocking… or is it? Is there ever a line that once crossed negates your political allegiance? You know… like dissecting aborted babies for profit? I guess the answer to that one, for now, is, the Liberal media hasn’t found that “line” yet.

Journalistic ethics have apparently been replaced with political bias. The days of a free press holding politicians accountable seems to be gone, for now. I’m hopeful it will return. In the meantime, it will be new media’s responsibility to keep important issues like this in the forefront of the discussion through online avenues such as social media. So far so good.
