Graham Complains of 'Liberal Media' Terms on Abortion
Topic: NewsBusters

So Tim Graham is annoyed, in a June 7 NewsBusters post, that the New York Daily News uses what he calls "a very typical liberal-media template" for abortion related terms, avoiding the use of "pro-life" and "pro-abortion." Nowhere does Graham explain that it is inaccurate to do so, or even how it is a "typical liberal-media template."

Perhaps Graham could share with his readers the style guide from that MRC's on the subject. As we've detailed, CNS regularly uses "pro-life" and "pro-abortion" (as well as overall biased coverage of the abortion issue). Is that not a "typical conservative-media template"? Aren't those terms more skewed and less accurate than, say, "abortion foes" or "pro-abortion rights" (the Daily News' preferred terms)?

Or is this yet another of those instances where only the "liberal media" is biased and, as the MRC often suggests, there is no such thing as conservative media bias?
