The Women's March on Washington dominated news cycles, but in the pursuit of a story that seemed most important to big media, they neglected some major news. In his last hours of his presidency, Barack Obama transferred $221 million to the Palestinian Authority. Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Trans Pacific Partnership. A policy that prohibits federal funds for groups involved with abortions in other countries was reinstated. Yet, the Women's March dominated the news cycles. But it represented an agenda that Big Media favored—which is left-leaning policies. Consider that pro-life women were excluded. It also excluded the 53 percent of white women and 32 percent of Latinas who voted for Trump.—Making clear that it wasn't so much a commitment to women's issues as it was to an ideological commitment to left-wing policies.
