Why Bother with Balance? I'm a Reporter!

Imagine you are a teacher of journalism and you want to show your students an apalling example of bias, disinformation and selective editorializing masquerading as news coverage. You would be hard pressed to find a better example than this tripe published by The Nation and then featured on the CBS web site. Not only is the reporting shameslessly slanted, the piece actually ends in a spirited call for readers to support the pro-abortion activities it highlights. Good grief.
