The Obama Administration is now the defendant in the biggest religious-freedom lawsuit in U.S. history -- and the media are almost entirely ignoring it. Why is that?

Biggest Religious Lawsuit in U.S. History Launched, Liberal Evening News Shows Ignore It



By Brent Bozell | May 22, 2012 | 12:13



The evening news broadcasts all but spiked the largest legal action in history to defend our constitutionally protected religious freedom.

The May 21 editions of ABC’s World News and NBC’s Nightly News refused
to report the fact that 43 Catholic dioceses and organizations filed a
lawsuit on Monday against the Obama administration. CBS Evening News gave this historic news a mere 19 seconds of air time.



This is the worst bias by omission I have seen in the quarter century
history of the Media Research Center.

Every American knows about the
Chinese communists withholding for 20 years the news that the US had
landed on the moon, because it reflected poorly on the government. Our
US media today are no different.

They are now withholding news from the
American people if it is harmful to the re-election of Barack Obama.





This is not a mistake, nor is it an editorial oversight by the
broadcast networks. This is a deliberate and insidious withholding of
national news to protect the ‘Chosen One’ who ABC, CBS and NBC have
worked so hard to elect and are now abusing their journalistic influence
to reelect Obama.

And when a network like CBS mentions the suit
ever-so-briefly, they deliberately distort the issue by framing it as a
contraception lawsuit instead of what they know it to be: a religious
freedom issue. It’s bogus, dishonest – a flat out lie.



The fact is that the Catholic Church has unleashed legal Armageddon on
the administration, promising ‘we will not comply’ with a health law
that strips Catholics of their religious liberty.

If this isn't 'news,'
then there's no such thing as news. This should be leading newscasts and
the subject of special, in-depth reports.

Instead, these networks are
sending a clear message to all Americans that the networks will go to
any lengths – even censoring from the public an event of this historic
magnitude – to prevent the release of any information that will hurt
Obama’s chances of re-election.



The so-called 'news' media have sunk to a new low. This is despicable.

    While liberals whine about a nonexistent "Republican war on women," the Obama Administration is waging a REAL war on the Catholic Church -- and indeed on the very concept of religious freedom and government non-interference in religious' institutions affairs.

    And the liberal media are all but ignoring it.

    There is more evidence to support a war on Religion than a war on women

    And if these Obama propaganda networks believe that they are hiding this story from Catholics for fear of turning those 41% of Catholics away from Obama, they have another thing coming.

    Ever since Obama started the war on the freedom of religion, our Church along with every Catholic Church has been keeping the congregation well informed of this unconstitutional act.

    These fliers are being passed out at the end of every Mass, eventually ripping into the Obama administration for their total disregard of the First Amendment.

    fliers

    BTW, my Neighbors are Southern Baptist and Pentecostal, and their Pastors are just as up in arms as the Catholics..
