Good Morning America reporter Claire Shipman on Friday offered a one-sided, misleading segment on Susan G. Komen's "political" decision to defund Planned Parenthood. (Later on Friday, the Komen Foundation backed down and restored funding, according to media reports .) Shipman inaccurately described a women who got a breast screening "through a Planned Parenthood screening." The organization doesn't do such procedures.
Yet, an ABC graphic misrepresented that Monique Benoit "received a mammogram through Planned Parenthood." Benoit is featured on Planned Parenthood's YouTube account . There, a more accurate explanation was given: The group "gave me a referral slip to somewhere for a mammogram." [See MP3 audio here .]
