The Media’s Unconscionable Planned Parenthood Whitewash

The thick, black, ill-omened plumes of smoke belching out of the Planned Parenthood videos have for over a month been virtually impossible to ignore. For some of the country’s self-described watchdog organizations, however, an ideological commitment to the taxpayer-subsidized abortion provider and prolific Democratic donor has clouded their vision. This week, smoke finally gave way to flames. They lap ominously not only at the feet of Planned Parenthood administrators and their defenders in the political class, but they also threaten to engulf a political press that has lashed itself unapologetically to the scandal-plagued institution in solidarity.
