THE MEDIA ROLE
Wonder how the White House birth control mandate mutated into an opportunity to bash those “archaic” conservatives? Blame broadcasters, says Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes.
“Instead of a story about the overreach of big government and violation of religious freedom, the networks are now spinning the birth control story as one about out-of-control conservatives,” he says.

Feeling powerful is the motivator here, the researchers found, not anger or some other dramatic feelings. The real message goes out to the also-rans.
“Losers need to watch out,” Mr. Bushman observes.
