Analyzing Justice Roberts' Supreme Court

Talking about the Supreme Court, today is the 37th March for Life in Washington, D.C. Last year there were over 300,000 people at the March, but the media didn't mention it. The Million Man March a few years ago had 400,000 marchers, and it was a one-time event. If it was a Klu Klux Klan rally, the media would cover it. Will the news mention the pro-life march this year?
