Will the Press cover #MarchForLife?

The MRC found that the big three broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) gave last year’s March for Life a grand total of 35 seconds of coverage on their evening and morning news programs. Despite a major winter storm bearing down on the nation’s capital (which would dump two feet of snow), tens of thousands came to show their support for the lives of the unborn....

ABC News was the only broadcast network to cover the event, with Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos taking 13 seconds to say the event to “protest abortion” would take place despite the winter storm warnings. The network later briefly referenced a high school group having trouble getting back to Kentucky following the march due to the severe winter weather.
