DC Mayor Arrested in Abortion Funding Protest: Alternate Headlines the Media Refuses to Use

The story is entitled “D.C. Mayor Vince Gray arrested and released.” Abortion cuts are one reason cited for the protest:

Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other top city officials were arrested on Capitol Hill on Monday during a protest of the budget deal House Republicans cut with President Barack Obama.
A crowd of about 200 to 300 gathered near the Hart Senate Office Building in opposition to a budget bill passed last week because it places new limits on the city. One measure prevents Washington from spending government funds, even local money, on abortion services.

If Gray was a conservative I’m sure the media could find a different angle to the story. I can see the headlines now:

–“Leader angry it’s now harder for poor minorities to kill their babies”

–“Mayor protests cut in funding to lower number of blacks in DC”

Go ahead and choose one of those and feel free to use it, MSM. I dare ya.
