Schiavo & The Media

Getting a lot of e-mails like this one:

Based on my personal experience, I’m confident that had the respondants

in that Fox poll gotten all the facts they would NOT have voted to remove

Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube. My wife, my brother and three co-workers were

all in favor of it, until I gave them more of the story than the media did.

The truly unfortunate thing is that the media has been very successful in

framing this story as “poor suffering soul just wants to die with dignity”,

and far too many people have been content to leave it at that.
