On Monday, a Philadelphia jury found pro-life activist Mark Houck not guilty on trumped-up charges filed by the Biden regime which alleged Houck was blocking access to an abortion clinic while protesting outside the clinic, which they said was a crime under the FACE Act and would’ve subjected Houck to over a decade in prison.
Since this is another black eye for the Biden Justice Department and a big victory for Houck, the three evening news broadcasts ignored the jury verdict.
Instead of reporting on the big win for the pro-life side, ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News spent air time on stories like local weather reports, a Tesla catching fire off the side of a highway, and an incident where a man was saved from an oncoming train by a police officer.
Unsurprisingly, Fox News covered the Houck jury verdict right as it broke with correspondent Mark Meredith reporting that Houck was acquitted and his “legal team told Fox News that they were thrilled with the outcome upon learning that he had been acquitted of both charges. He was potentially facing up to 11 years behind bars.”
Giving viewers background on the legal case, Meredith recalled that “this all stems from an incident that dated back to October of 2021 in which Houck was accused of physically assaulting an abortion clinic volunteer escort in Philadelphia.” Adding that, “the feds had basically claimed that Houck was preventing people from getting into these clinics.”
You can be sure that if the verdict went the other way, the three networks would’ve covered it and gloated over the outcome.
