TV Guide Plops Justin Bieber's Pro-life Remarks on a 'Timeline of Bad Behavior'

TV Guide posted an article headlined “Justin Bieber's Downward Spiral: A Timeline of Bad Behavior.” Sadie Gennis began: “Bieber has become the poster child for paparazzi attacks, partying and reckless driving — a far cry from the innocent, devoutly Christian singer he was six years ago.  So what happened?”

She added, “Check out our timeline of The Biebs' downward spiral and figure out what went wrong.” Bizarrely, TV Guide listed Bieber’s pro-life remarks to Rolling Stone magazine on its “timeline of bad behavior”:

Feb. 16, 2011: In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bieber shares his opinion on abortion. "It's like killing a baby," he says. When asked if the pregnancy was the result of rape changes anything, Bieber adds: "Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don't know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."

It was also odd that being wrongly accused of paternity was on a "bad behavior" timeline:

Nov. 1, 2011: Bieber is named in a paternity suit as the father of a Mariah Yeater's 3-month-old son. Bieber denies the claim and is proven right by a DNA test a few weeks later.
