On Wednesday, thousands of people — black and white — turned out in droves at Chick-fil-A restaurants in response to public criticism of CEO Dan Cathy who voiced his opinion on traditional marriage.
Chick-fil-A announced a record-breaking day for sales. The turnout on Wednesday smashed all records for foot traffic at any fast food restaurant chain in history.
But you wouldn’t know about the biggest story of the week just by picking up a newspaper in any major city, or by watching CNN.
Atlanta-based CNN — which gave major coverage to giant snapping turtles last month — devoted scant coverage to the Chick-fil-A story.
It will be interesting to see how much coverage the biased media will devote to the planned gay “kiss-in” at Chick-fil-A restaurants today.
From The Weekly Standard:
There’s no mention of Chick-fil-A on the front pages of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and the Boston Globe. The front pages of USA Today, the Dallas Morning News, and the Houston Chronicle have small headlines about the restaurant, while Chick-fil-A’s hometown paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, fits in a story below the fold under the heading, “Chick-fil-A Controversy.” And the front pages of major news websites are quiet in their coverage as well.
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who made the call for Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, said the rally was in response to what he described as “economic bullying” by people trying to put Cathy “out of business.”
