If you need evidence that the media is biased toward the liberal agenda, you can find it in the AP manual. Here's the usage guideline under "abortion":
Use "anti-abortion" instead of "pro-life" and "abortion rights" instead of "pro-abortion" or "pro-choice." Avoid "abortionist," which connotes a person who performs clandestine abortions; use a term such as "abortion doctor" or "abortion practitioner."
Hmmm. Abortion doctor. Sounds like a bit of a oxymoron, no? Or abortion practitioner. They practice doing abortions. Some day they'll get them right.
Orwell demonstrated just how powerful the word is, how selectively eliminating those terms with a pejorative connotation or banning those with a positive connotation can shape people's impressions. Derrida knew this. The government knows this. The media knows this. When will the rest of us wake up and resist?
