WORSHIPPING BA'AL WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT:

Pew Study Finds Less Than One Percent of Election Coverage Included Abortion (Steven Ertelt, November 21, 2008, LifeNews.com)

If some Americans voted for Barack Obama for president without knowing his strong pro-abortion views, a new Pew study finds the media is partly to blame. The new Pew Forum study found less than 1 percent of campaign news coverage related to abortion issues.

The Pew study examined 7,592 campaign stories from 48 news outlets during the general election.

They covered from June 1, the week that the primaries ended and Hillary Clinton suspended her campaign, to October 15, the day of the last presidential debate.

Pew found only 283 stories in which religion or religious issues played a significant role and only 9 percent of these stories covered the issues of abortion or stem cell research, with abortion getting the most attention of the two.
