CNS' Jeffrey Makes Irrelevent, Misleading Comparison

Terry Jeffrey forwards one of the dumber comparisons we've seen in a Jan. 8 article, best summed up by the headline: "Stephanopoulos Questioning Pelosi on Gov't Role in Contraception: 100 Words; Questioning GOP Candidates: 1,000 Words."

In fact, the discussions in question were of two completely different subjects. The Pelosi discussion involved money from the stimulus bill used for family planning; the questioning of Republican presidential candidates involved whether contraception should even be legal, focusing on the constitutionality of the 1965 Supereme Court decision Griswold v. Connecticut, which prevented states from banning contraceptives.

Further, ABC's George Stephanopoulos was questioning several GOP candidates, compared with a single person in Pelosi, so Jeffrey's comparison is even more misleading.
