[See NewsBusters for more.] As pro-abortion radicals rioted and attacked pro-lifers in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade, the network newscasts mostly looked the other way. They offered scant coverage and repeatedly insisted that the last several days have been “mostly” or “largely” peaceful. On Monday’s CBS Evening News, Jan Crawford insisted, “Largely peaceful, there were scattered acts of vandalism and another attack on an anti-abortion pregnancy center like this one in Virginia.” On the same day’s CBS Mornings, she echoed, “Now, over the weekend the protests remained largely peaceful.”
