The annual March for Life was held in Washington on Friday, only a week after several major protests surrounding President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
On Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Friday night, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went on a tear against the media over the difference in their coverage of the anti-Trump demonstrations and coverage of the March for Life, which protests the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision that legalized abortion.
“Left-wing, pro-abortion, anti-conservative news media are going to do everything they can to hide from the reality that there are vastly more Americans who care about life than there are who care about weird people wearing strange hats … and talking about bombing the White House,” Gingrich told guest host Eric Bolling.
Gingrich also commented on how the media almost completely ignored the fact that Vice President Mike Pence became the first sitting vice president to attend the March for Life — and he got a massive round of applause when he showed up.
“The media is … 80 percent or 90 percent of the media is the opposition party. These aren’t reporters, these are propagandists!” Gingrich said.
Time and time again, liberal media outlets have gone out of their way to attack Trump, or Republicans in general, and time and time again their attacks have backfired.

You would think the media would have deduced over the past year that their tactics don’t work anymore because everyone can see right through them.
Clearly they haven’t learned anything.
Fox News has been one of the only “mainstream” media networks to give Trump a fair shake or to cover both the anti-Trump and pro-life protests with anything resembling fairness.
Maybe the next four years will teach the media that if they are going to treat the president of the United States with open hostility, they are going to be shocked at the response.
Journalists should cover both sides of the aisle fairly. We’re not asking the media to side with Republicans all the time — we’re just asking that they be treated equally.
That’s really not such an unreasonable request.
