George Washington once said he was retiring from public life because he no longer wished to be attacked in the news "by a set of infamous scribblers."
Fabricating a false news story, the media "scribblers" of today ignited a feeding frenzy to demonize pro-life students of Covington Catholic High School who attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on January 18, 2019.

Fact 1: Leftists and professional indigenous activist protesters provoked the boys. The same activists attempted to disrupt the Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine on Jan. 19, Catholic News Agency reports.
Fact 2: The boys did not respond with insults, but only shouted school chants to avoid listening to the vulgar insults.
Fact 3: While the same leftist media that refuses to cover the massive March for Life with fairness, a twisted story against a group of pro-life boys is "national news."
Fact 4: Student Nick Sandmann, 16, was singled out by the media and threatened. "I have received physical and death threats," he said. "My parents are receiving death and professional threats because of the social media mob that has formed over this issue."
Fact 5: Nick's response is honorable: "I am a faithful Christian and practicing Catholic, and I always try to live up to the ideals my faith teaches me -- to remain respectful of others, and to take no action that would lead to conflict or violence."
"Perhaps the media are beyond a sense of shame now, wallowing in destructive polemics," observes Fr. George W. Rutler, "but fair-minded people may be moved by this Covington incident to recognize the indecency of political correctness. Such correctness is most demeaning when it cloaks itself in an affected moralism which agnostic subjectivism has otherwise displaced from social discourse."
