CNN names LifeSite as Gates critic
CNN singled out LifeSiteNews over its criticism of Melinda Gates’ funding for contraceptives.
“Responding to simmering controversy among Catholic bloggers about her new birth control program, Melinda Gates – a practising Catholic – said she will not shrink from her role as an advocate for poor women,” CNN stated. “One blog in particular, LifeSiteNews.com, has frequently published diatribes against Gates, calling into question her faith, and calling her plan a ‘blatant attack on Catholic sexual morality’,” the news agency wrote a couple of paragraphs later.
Steve Jalsevac of LifeSiteNews.com, which is in fact a news site not a blog, responded: “If calmly pointing out that population control harms rather than helps women in the third world, and that it also happens to go against clear Catholic teaching, is a “diatribe” – then I guess we’re guilty as charged!”
