Two GOP presidential candidates compared media coverage over Cecil the Lion and Planned Parenthood

Both said outrage over the dead lion outpaced that of the recent release of a series of heavily-edited undercover videos

Washington CNN —  

Two Republican presidential candidates tied separate controversies over Cecil the Lion and Planned Parenthood together in one tweet in recent days.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted Tuesday that the lion was getting more attention than the Planned Parenthood story.

“That many in the national media are more concerned with #CecilTheLion than @PPact killing babies to harvest their organs is unconscionable,” he tweeted.
