Letter: Media must admit it has bias problem

Editorial: Cramer should back off 'media bias' case

LETTER: Media's pro-abortion bias repeatedly shines through
More than 400,000 Americans braved a huge blizzard for this year's March for Life in Washington—news that once again was ignored by major American news media. NBC and CBS had no coverage of the march, while ABC news devoted 14 seconds. The motivations for these large marches...
