Liberals are "pro" and bestow rights on people. Conservatives are "anti" and negative. That's the impressions that viewers would get from watching ABC. On Tuesday, Good Morning America's Bianna Golodryga mentioned the possible presidential candidacy of George Pataki, noting the former New York governor is "pro-choice, pro-union and pro-gay rights."

Yet, on June 30, 2011, World News reporter Sharyn Afonsi highlighted Michele Bachmann's "anti-abortion view." On June 07, 2011, GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos suggested to Ann Coulter, "You seem to express some kind of understanding for anti-abortion protesters who use violence.”

Using slightly different wording, reporter Aaron Katersky provided a negative spin on the American Family Association, a group who sponsored a prayer event that Texas Governor Rick Perry spoke at.

"Worth noting. That’s all :("

I think they need to be subject to the glare of public light constantly.

Lift the rock. Watch 'em scurry.

I like:
“Pro-Life,” “Pro-Family,” and “Pro-Male/Female Marriages,”+++++ “Pro-Christ,” “Pro-Church,” “Pro-Bible,”
“Pro-Truth,” “Pro-God,” “Pro-USA.”

The pro’s have it! And they all go together: “INDIVISIBLE”
