AmSpec Fisks Newsweek's Hit Job on the March for Life

Just a taste and then you can click over for the whole thing:

It appears -- and I cringe to write this -- that either Gesaman or Maddux (or both), does not comprehend that the annual Jan. 22 protest in Washington, DC is a pro-life protest. Her/their concern over the prospect that "feminists" will no longer march to "memorialize" Roe v. Wade is...

I don't know. Clearly, this blog post is inscrutable and it's not worth trying to figure out the author's intent. But I am still wrestling with the idea that A) it's possible that there's someone out there -- anywhere -- that does not understand that pro-choice feminists are not participating in the March for Life and B) that Newsweek chose this person to write about today's protests.

Given the way the author twists quotes to make it seem like young women are not participating, rather than young people (neither of which is true, mind you), I'd say it was a conscious decision on her part to give the impression that (1) the March for Life is an aging, dying event; and (2) to the extent it still functions it's the eeevil men doing it. That probably comports with her own beliefs and wishes.
