MEATY STORY 1. Fox controlling the abortion dialogue https://www.mediamatters.org/fox-news/other-networks-are-letting-fox-news-poison-abortion-related-coverage-dangerous-lies -Fox leads the conversation in the media. They talk about abortion significantly more and their perspectives and talking points inform talking points on other networks, even networks with a less biased perspective. Consequently, when other networks talk about abortion ther are often spreading the same kind of misinformation, or references to Fox-lead talking points. For example: In discussions about abortion funding rules across the three networks [Fox News, MSNBC and CNN], 67% of statements were inaccurate. Once again, Fox News discussed the topic the most, with 124 statements — 87 of which were inaccurate (70%). There were two total statements about abortion funding rules made on MSNBC, one of which was inaccurate (50%). CNN aired nine statements about abortion funding rules and seven were accurate (78% accurate, 22% inaccurate). MEATY STORY 2.

Created in 2004 in College Station, TX, it now has a global presence in over 50 countries. This is a super vitriolic Christian Catholic community that charges its followers with praying, fasting, and around-the-clock harassing ‘vigils’ of specific abortion clinics. Oh and it’s not free! Per the 2015 campaign report, almost $200 is required of those APPLYING to lead efforts in their cities. And churches and communities are expected to contribute funding and services in support, and volunteers should be approached and asked for ‘financial commitments.’ We have included their 2017 public 990 above. 40 DAYS FOUNDER SHAWN CARNEY: (WHO’S WHO OF WHO WANTS TO OPPRESS WOMEN) https://www.40daysforlife.com/about-overview.aspx They are Abby Johnson endorsers, and their followers include the Pope, the Susan B.
