The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks were so excited by Democratic
Texas state senator Wendy Davis’s filibuster they failed to notice she
is on the losing side of the abortion debate.</p>
<p>
Anchors like NBC’s Brian Williams and ABC’s Diane Sawyer were so busy hailing Davis’s <strong>“epic” </strong>filibuster and her rise to<strong> “folk hero” </strong>status that they failed to report the findings of a <em>National Journal</em> poll showing her extremist pro-abortion stance is an unpopular one.</p>
<p>
According to the latest United Technologies/<em>National Journal </em><a href="http://www.nationaljournal.com/congressional-connection/coverage/americ…;,
Americans favor a bill banning all abortions after 20 weeks by a 48 to
44 percent. The poll also found that younger respondents are even less
accepting of the Davis stance, as it found those between the ages of 18
and 29 were in favor of a post-20 week abortion ban by a margin of 52 to
39 percent.<br />
<br />
Not one of the Big Three networks mentioned the National Journal poll findings.<br />
<br />
However they did find the time to celebrate Davis as they filled their
shows with a total of 12 stories in since the Texas State Senator left
the floor on Tuesday. CBS led the pack with six stories, including an
interview segment with Davis. ABC and NBC had three stories a piece.</p><p><br />Crossposted at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/geoffrey-dickens/2013/06/28/abc-cbs-nbc-to…;
