CNN’s Rick Sanchez Not Sure Who’s Protesting At Annual Pro-Life March in D.C.
Sanchez directed that question to his executive producer Angie Massie as he went to a commercial break. Of course, the March for Life, as it’s name implies, is an annual gathering of pro-life activists in the nation’s capital to voice their opposition to abortion on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. As Rick puzzled over which side was more represented, live footage appeared on screen showing a seemingly equal number of pro-abortion and pro-life protestors.
Returning from the commercial break, Sanchez clarified that most of the protestors “seem to be” pro-life, but still seemed completely unfamiliar with the annual event: “As far as we can tell, following this protest on this day, the bulk of the protesters that we have seen here – that doesn’t mean there aren’t others, because we haven’t gone out and counted them individually – seem to be anti-abortion activists. We’ve seen more pro-life signs than we have the others.”
Before moving on to another story, Sanchez did read a tweet from Sarah Palin on the march: “She tweets at this moment, and I will share it to with you: ‘Affirming dignity & worth of every innocent human life & defending the defenseless are fundamental American values, so march peacefully & hopefully.’ That’s from Sarah Palin’s camp.”
