The Media Style Book on “Rights”
The Providence Journal reprint of this article has the headline “Gay rights: The backlash” and the following lead:
Some who oppose gay rights say their views are targets of discrimination.
I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such an excellent example of the way in which media bias begins even at the level of the style book. With one exception, every example of the “rights” in question is same-sex marriage. The one exception isn’t even about any kind of rights, but about a group encouraging gays to change their orientation.
In other words, an objective media would have characterized it as same-sex marriage opponents who are the targets of discrimination. That doesn’t quite have the same propagandistic ring, though.
