The Most Significant StoryTopics: Commentary
Rob Hood writes the following for the American Daily:
I nominated the Terri Schiavo case as the most unforgettable story of the year. While talk radio hosts like Bill Bennett, Sean Hannity, and others gave this story full coverage for almost two weeks, the mainstream media took very little notice at all. Sure they reported on it but only for about five to ten minutes at the end of the regularly scheduled newscast. They treated it like it was nothing.He continues to explain some of the reasons why the story was significant, keying off of the conduct of the the judge who preceeded over the case.
The story is significant if for no other reason than it emphasizes the necessity of alternate communication vehicles and news sources to cover issues and events that affect our lives. The battle for Terri Schiavo's life unmasked the hidden agenda and remarkable foothold of the culture of death, a worldview that judges the dignity of human life as a product of capability and function. It also showed us the potential of the blogosphere.
The battle lines are now drawn and it is time to continue the fight the led to the establishement of BlogsforTerri nearly a year ago. A good place to start is the Blogs4Life conference scheduled for Jan. 23 in Washington DC. Continue to visit Terrisfight.org and look for updates at BlogsforTerri.com in the near future.
