This is almost as sickening as the videos themselves.
While the media stay away from the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts, they are drawn to Planned Parenthood’s annual media awards ceremony. During Planned Parenthood’s Maggie Awards for Media Excellence Tuesday night, the abortion giant recognized 16 journalists for pushing “reproductive rights.” From Buzzfeed and Yahoo! to MSNBC, MRC Culture compiled a list of several prominent media attendees – and found a picture announcing the winners.
And the list of recipients is a regular Who’s Who of media outlets that completely dismiss the gruesome videos that have been rolling out this summer, or if they even mentioned them, use the PP talking points that they were heavily edited. Here’s the list:
Buzzfeed – via Casey Gueren
Colorlines.com – via Akiba Solomon and Aura Bogado
Cosmopolitan – via Jill Filipovic
Ebony – via Jamilah Lemieux
Elle – via Laurie Abraham and Leah Chernikoff
Esquire – via John H. Richardson
Mic – via Elizabeth Plank
MSNBC – via Irin Carmon
Pearl of Africa documentary – via Cleo Kambugu and Jonny von Wallström
Salon – via Valerie Tarico
Teen Vogue – via Phillip Picardi
The Nation – via Katha Pollitt
UpWorthy – via Ariel Azoff, Wagatwe Wanjuki and Lori White
Vice – via Fazeelat Aslam
Yahoo! Health – via Jen Gerson Uffalussy
If these were actual media outlets and not propaganda mills, they might be interested in this bombshell story.
Very damaging Planned Parenthood videos released. PP hires firm to discourage media from talking about them. Media who listened get awards.

After this one we’re going to need a new hypocrisy meter:

Critical coverage? Say what? Oh, and she’s totally pro-woman, except, well…
Carly Fiorina keeps emphasizing her business record. But why, when it's so abysmal? http://t.co/bk2FqWZ0J4

Future CMP videos should splice in clips of these so-called “journalists” receiving their awards.
