|Andrea Mitchell Advocates For Planned Parenthood|
Friday, April 06, 2012
Is it the role of a "correspondent," as opposed to a pundit, to advocate on a controversial subject?
Apparently Andrea Mitchell thinks it's just fine.
On today's Morning Joe, Mitchell, NBC's chief foreign affairs correspondent, twice spoke in defense of Planned Parenthood. She claimed to distinguish PP's role in providing abortions from the screening services it offers women, and criticized the decision of the Texas state government to prohibit Planned Parenthood from receiving federal screening funds. But funds being fungible, Mitchell was effectively advocating for all of Planned Parenthood, including its role as the nation's largest abortion provider.
