Boston Globe reporter talks about media bias

This is from an old article, but media bias is still a problem for the pro-life movement.

Ethan Bronner, then a reporter for the Boston Globe, said:

“I think that when abortion opponents complain about a bias in the newsroom against their cause, they’re absolutely right.”

Bronner cited a story of his own on late-term abortions in which he had to fight a copy editor to retain such language as “destroying” the unborn by “crushing forming skulls and bones.”

Bronner said the editor told him, “As far as I’m concerned, until that thing is born, it is really no different from a kidney, it is part of the woman’s body.”
