The media’s strangely subdued reporting on Family Research Council shooter

I was camping yesterday morning when a friend alerted me via Twitter on my iPhone there had been a shooting at Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Frightened for my friends, I began scanning Google for news reports. Ten minutes later the first story popped up, stating an FRC security guard had been shot in the arm, and the shooter had been arrested.

A bit relieved, I went ahead with a planned day trip, tuning in to news radio in the truck to keep up with the latest. Nada.

Pro-abortion extremist faces 4 years in prison for threats; found with cyanide

UPDATE 9:50a: Douglas Johnson, Legislative Director of National Right to Life, adds this thought:

Theodore Shulman entered a guilty plea in a federal court in Manhattan yesterday. But the only press coverage seen, so far, is a short story in the New York Daily News, and an even shorter Associated Press piece.

Neither the Daily News nor the AP mentioned that Shulman is the son of famed feminist author and activist Alix Kates Shulman, whose works include Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen. I think that if a pro-life activist had entered a guilty plea to making death threats against prominent pro-abortion leaders, that story would be covered much more widely – and if the offender also were the son of a famous pro-life author and activist, that association would be highlighted. Maybe the “mainstream media” should also enter a guilty plea – guilty to bias by grossly selective perception regarding what constitutes “news.”

I should also highlight the fact that Alix has spoken of aborting four of Shulman’s siblings, “and not one was the result of carelessness.” Theodore has commented on those abortions, saying two came before him and two after. Shulman has one living sister, Polly. One doesn’t have to be a psychiatrist to figure out why Shulman is messed up. He needs our prayers.

6a: From the New York Daily News, last night:

Central character of new HBO drama, “Wichita,” will be a Kansas late-term abortionist

Hollywood Reporter reported October 21: Alan Ball [pictured right] is switching genres. The True Blood showrunner is developing Wichita, an hourlong drama about a Kansas surgeon who inadvertently becomes the focal point of a contemporary political, cultural and ethical war. Ball is set to executive produce the HBO project with writer Devin Friedman, the author […]

Abortions in Kansas plunge post-Tiller; update on Scott Roeder

Although I believe it was just as wrong for Scott Roeder to murder late-term abortionist George Tiller (pictured right) as it was wrong for Tiller to murder preborn babies, the fact is that abortions have plunged in Kansas in the wake of Tiller’s death. According to the Wichita Eagle on March 31: Mid- to late-term […]

Abortion proponents disappointed in Maddow documentary on Tiller

Read backstory here. If you didn’t see pro-abort Rachel Maddow’s documentary, The Assassination of Dr. Tiller, it’s worth watching. Click to view Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, and Part VI. I came away from watching the special thinking it was nothing special. So I was surprised to read of pro-abort […]

Maddow airing 1-hr special on Tiller tonight

Liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is airing a one-hr special tonight at 9p EST about the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller entitled, “The Assassination of Dr. Tiller.” The subtitle provides Maddow’s angle: “New documentary looks into whether there were larger forces behind abortion doctor’s murder.” Here’s a clip, featuring a couple pro-lifers we know…

Weekend question: Should pro-lifers buy Tiller’s abortion mill?

Normally I’m all for pro-lifers buying abandoned abortion mills and converting them into pregnancy care centers, right to life offices, or abortion holocaust memorials. But this time I’m not so sure, since the owner of this particular infamous mill was murdered by a misguided person calling himself pro-life. Thoughts? Interesting info in this Associated Press […]
