The Left's Response to the Planned Parenthood Videos

With each new damning video showing the moral depravity of Planned Parenthood, two very interesting things are happening in the Left media and in chatrooms:

  1. The Left leaning media are flat ignoring the topic.  It is not being covered one iota, and there appears to be a concerted effort to sweep the entire subject under the rug
  2. The talk-off in chatrooms is that the videos are lies, and are the creation of Fox News.  They're highly edited, and flat fiction.  
The latter is the one that is most concerning to me.  American literacy on what is happening in our world are arguably the worst it's been since the dawn of mass media.  Folks cocoon themselves in a world where their "news" comes to them in easily digestible sound bites, and comes to them via a source which reflects messages that the recipient wants to hear.

Thus, a campaign designed to discredit a substantive, factual, fair, and astonishing story can be summarily discounted by just calling it names.  

This is a purely political tactic, and is straight out of Saul Alinski's playbook:  "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."

It is scary to me to see the abject manipulation of truth.  This is just profoundly evil.
