Pro-lifers are used to media blackouts of their events. The under reporting of Washington DC’s March for Life (which draws hundreds of thousands every year) or San Francisco’s Walk for Life West Coast which draws over 50,000 people. But the negligence of the mainstream media in refusing to cover the January 17 OneLife LA event in downtown Los Angeles sets a new low.
As of noon on January 19, a Google news search for OneLife LA articles over the previous 24 hours returned exactly two responses: an article from Catholic News Agency, and an article in the Rock Hill Herald, a publication based in, Rock Hill, South Carolina. That article was a reprint of the OneLife LA press release which followed the event. A similar search with the term “Archbishop Jose Gomez” (who presided over the event) over the same time frame only returned one reponse, the Catholic News Agency article.
