Capturing the Language to Assure Liberal DominanceTopics: Political News and commentaries
In Michael Medved's piece at TownHall yesterday he poses some interesting questions and takes some very valid shots at the liberal media, asking questions such as:
"Have you noticed that nearly all major press outlets have stopped using the phrases "pro life" or "pro choice" to describe the opposing positions on the abortion issue. The most common phraseology now centers on "abortion rights" --- as in, "Rudy Giuliani offends GOP orthodoxy with his support for abortion rights" or "Mitt Romney once supported, but now opposes, abortion rights." Such outrageously unfair language ignores the fact that no pro life candidate or advocate would ever say "I oppose abortion rights" - since they don't believe that abortion constitutes a genuine "right" in any sense."Read more on the way that the left abuses the language to cement its continued control of our public discourse here...
