Friday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took aim at the media for its extensive coverage of last week’s women’s march on Washington, while largely ignoring the March for Life that occurred earlier in the day.
Gingrich blasted the press, saying they were not reporter, but instead “propagandists.”
Partial transcript as follows:
ERIC BOLLING, FILL-IN HOST OF “THE O’REILLY FACTOR”: Despite the march is big turnout, the mainstream media appearing to do its best to downplay it today, especially compared to the nonstop coverage given to last weekend’s pro-abortion march.
Joining us now to analyze from Arlington, Virginia. Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. Look at the coverage. You look at the coverage. It’s nonstop, it’s wall-to-wall last week for the pro-abortion march, yet you hardly heard very much about this one even though Vice President Pence made an appearance.
