With all the attention the personhood measure has received this election cycle, we’re surprised to see that repeated claims it is going to pass have gone unreported and unchallenged by the media. PP 67 email copy

First it was Planned Parenthood and, more recently, other groups like Progress Now have picked up the torch and run with it. The chattering class gets that this claim is nothing more than a political fundraising tool, but does the general public realize that as well?

The state’s leading political reporters have unscrupulously grilled Cory Gardner over his position on women’s issues and written feature length articles on how, “If Colorado’s U.S. Senate race were a movie, the set would be a gynecologist’s office, complete with an exam table and a set of stirrups.” Which is why we find it odd they’re ignoring the left’s claim that this highly controversial measure is allegedly passing after having failed by a 3 to 1 margin in the last three election cycles.

At the very least these groups should be asked by reporters to put up or shut up. If Amendment 67 really is passing, that is front page/top of the hour news.
