Instead of a story about the overreach of big government and violation of constitutionally protected religious rights, the mainstream television networks continue to spin the administration’s mandate that all employers (including religious organizations) must provide contraceptives and drugs that can cause an abortion—free of charge through their insurance premiums—as a story about out-of-control conservatives and out-of-step religious leaders.
They ignore Roman Catholic bishops who say that even President Obama’s revised policy “continues to involve needless government intrusion on the internal governance of religious institutions.”
The media’s myopia also ignores broad and continuing opposition — including a lawsuit by seven state attorneys general—to the Government’s power grab.
It seems these jaundiced journalists stand ready to always defend the latest liberal policy decision. At the same time, they seem collectively committed to punish social conservatives for having personal religious beliefs that the reporters deem incorrect.
