It only makes sense. People looked at the Monitor as the trusted leader of ‘non-agenda’ journalism; now they’re just a lockstep follower.

Here's one example:

In their 'article' of June 1, 2009 headlined: “Concerns mount that suspect in abortion-doctor shooting had extremist ties” the writer states, “They [the extreme fringe of the anti-abortion movement] are facing a situation in which for the first time a majority of US residents consider themselves "pro-choice," according to polls.”

Yet…

Their article of May 15, 2009 headlined “Abortion debate: Gallup says more Americans pro-life” the article reads, “For the first time since 1995, most Americans say they’re pro-life. A new Gallup poll reveals that 51 percent of Americans identify themselves as such while 42 percent label themselves pro-choice.”

So the Monitor has no problem pushing their agenda even to the point of saying that the majority of Americans are “the extreme fringe of the anti-abortion movement”?
