ABC, NBC, CBS covered the baby pandas more than the Planned Parenthood videos

NBC correspondent Hallie Jackson hyped, “It’s a lot of work raising twins, but falling in love with them? That’s as simple as black and white” and CBS, co-anchor Norah O’Donnell similarly hyped the “panda-monium” and “cubs double-header.” Coverage of the new baby pandas at the National Zoo exceeds the coverage of the Planned Parenthood videos since mid-July.

According to Newsbusters: “From Aug. 12 to Sept. 2, the networks spent 28 minutes and 59 seconds on the baby panda story. Meanwhile, from July 14 to Sept. 2, ABC, NBC and CBS have spent less than 24 minutes on the story of human babies torn apart in the Planned Parenthood videos.”

The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS not only don’t cover the Planned Parenthood videos (CBS was the only network to spend more time — six seconds more — on the videos than the panda story), the language used is quite telling as well.

Speaking of panda twins, the networks haven’t spared a second to the aborted human baby twin in the fifth video exposing Planned Parenthood. In fact, the networks haven’t covered the last five videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. While anchors refused to utter the word “baby” while reporting on the videos (opting for “fetal tissue”), they called the panda a “baby” – even before the first one was born. One of those mentions came from NBC’s Dylan Dreyer, when she noted the “signs that a baby could be on the way” during Today on Aug. 14.

Analysis on the boycott of the word “baby” during the coverage: “The only time the word “baby” was heard on NBC and CBS broadcasts covering the videos, was when a politician or representative from The Center For Medical Progress used the word.” (Source)
