The ninth episode of HBO’s The Young Pope, which aired February 12, featured an anti-Catholic view of abortion, a conversation about orgasms, and (surprise!) another corrupt, lecherous clergy member.
A new report released by Live Action shows that many media outlets have been caught up in Planned Parenthood’s web of lies. The documented evidence shows that Planned Parenthood repeatedly lied to media outlets after they were exposed in undercover video footage offering assistance to investigators, posing as pimps prostituting minor girls.
All that was missing from Hillary Clinton's video address to a left-wing women's group this week was a pink pussyhat and a “BOYS SUCK” T-shirt. Feminists at the MAKERS conference in Southern California gushed over the twice-failed presidential candidate's remarks, which exhorted her ideological sisters-in-arms to “be bold,” “step up and speak out,” and “set an example for every woman and girl out there who's worried about what the future holds and wonders whether our rights, opportunities and values will endure.”
The liberal media boast close ties with Planned Parenthood, so it'll be interesting to see how they cover the abortion giant’s “quotas,” if at all. On Tuesday, Live Action, a pro-life nonprofit, released a video in which a former Planned Parenthood employee admitted that clinics used incentives, such as pizza parties, as a “motivator” to meet abortion quotas. Yes, that’s right, abortion quotas.
According to the liberal media and Hollywood, the president’s new Supreme Court pick can be defined as “anti-choice” and “mentally unbalanced.”
Thanks to the press's obsession with cooperating with and promoting those who object to President Donald Trump's opening week actions, Live Action's exposure of Planned Parenthood as hardly more than a collection of grisly abortion chambers has gone relatively unnoticed. This heroic work deserves much wider exposure, and much more press attention. A week ago, covered by Tim Graham at NewsBusters, a Live Action video demonstrated that the vast majority of PP's facilities contacted provide no prenatal care services. Yesterday, in two new videos, Live Action revealed that Planned Parenthood has plenty of ultrasound machines, but that almost all of them are used solely "to determine a baby’s age and position in the womb" before performing an abortion. Leftist politicians and media members need to abandon their knee-jerk defense of PP as a provider of a variety of "reproductive health services," because that is not what it is.
Republican members of Congress met in Philadelphia last weekend for what was called a retreat. It might have been more accurately labeled an advance. Perhaps not since the days of Franklin Roosevelt's first term has so much been done by so few that will potentially impact so many (to paraphrase Winston Churchill in a completely different context).
Media coverage of protests is so ideologically biased as to deceive the public. Tea Party protests were law-abiding, and so orderly that they usually left no trash behind (unlike the recent Women’s March in Washington, or attendees of the 2009 Obama inauguration, who left behind lots of trash).
All that "non-partisan" posturing, and they couldn't even get CNN to buy it. On Friday, CNN presented a segment on the 44th annual March for Life before it began. The press usually ignores the march's existence until after it has taken place, typically barely recognizes it afterwards, and almost invariably insists on describing crowd sizes which have often been in the hundreds of thousands as mere "thousands." The network's Brianna Keilar's acknowledged that the previous week's Women's March was really "the liberal Women's March."
Wednesday night on CNN, Van Jones had The View’s Whoopi Goldberg on his special townhall style series The Messy Truth as his guest. The show, which admirably attempts to get people from both sides of the political aisle talking to eachother, unfortunately only made the truth messier with Whoopi, who made a number of dubious and patently false claims.
One of the more revealing side effects of the 2016 presidential campaign, and especially the November election, is how old-line liberal publications which once had at least a veneer of respectability have completely gone off the deep end. Readers have come to expect completely unhinged, error-ridden material to routinely appear at places like Salon.com. But at the Atlantic? Beyond occasional shorter blog posts at its web site, we didn't used to see much of it. But there's no other way to describe a deeply flawed January 24 op-ed appearing there which sharply criticized ultrasound images of unborn children as an example of "how effectively politicians have used visual technology to redefine what counts as 'life.'"
On Thursday afternoon, our friends at RedState flagged this peculiar development that ABC News refused an exchange from the David Muir-President Trump interview where Trump scolded Muir for the media’s lack of coverage of the March for Life versus the Women’s March on Washington.
