NYT falls for Soros group’s PR stunt against pro-lifers
You’ll notice that marchers are only called “pro-life” in a scare-quotey sense to cast skepticism on their claims. You might wonder if the Times broke precedent to cover the massive march so as to be able to criticize it with this more prominent story.
It turns out that this piece is basically just a press release from the same savvy, highly funded PR firm that has been providing cover for Obama via similar stunts for the last year (I assume for more than a year, but I only really got hip to it in the last year).
The group is called Faith in Public Life. They’re the ones who came up with the highly successful “Nuns on the Bus” tour that got embarrassingly uncritical coverage for an anti-Paul Ryan campaign featuring not one, not two, but as many as three to four nuns. The media literally (in the Biden sense, not the actual sense) could not have given them more or more favorable coverage. Even while ignoring massive events such as the 5,000+ Catholics packed into a Mass to pray for religious liberty last summer.
Would it surprise you to know that this group is funded by George Soros?
