Conservative actor Jon Voight is used to making waves in the media for standing in direct opposition to their radical liberal viewpoints.

Voight appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio program Monday and shared how and when he saw Hollywood drift from its traditional American values and how that influenced culture.



It’s newsworthy when people of faith are killed by a gunman -- except when they are Christian. The broadcast networks made that clear by the difference between the massive coverage of the shooting of three Muslims in February and the little coverage of how the Oregon shooter reportedly targeted Christians.


“Many have already judged this as a hate crime,” CBS’s Scott Pelley asserted on the Feb. 14 evening news broadcast covering the Chapel Hill shooting. When three Muslim students were killed by an angry neighbor last spring, the broadcast networks jumped to allege this was an anti-Muslim “hate crime” -- bringing that phrase up a whopping 30 times in eight broadcasts.  



Thursday evening, news broke that the Oregon school shooter had questioned students about their faith before he shot them. Later Thursday, The New York Post reported an incredible detail: Christian students were specifically singled out by the shooter. By Friday morning, all three networks had told viewers of that nightmare scenario on their morning shows. The Washington Post and The LA Times followed up with the story shortly after.

But, for some reason, one notable media outlet was silent for the majority of Friday -- The New York Times.



Reporters who dare to ask pro-abortion politicians if an unborn baby is a human being are now being called “abortion protesters” -- by the liberal media, that is.

At a press conference Thursday morning, journalist Sam Dorman from MRC’s news division, CNS News, asked Rep. Nancy Pelosi a question about abortion. For daring to challenge the abortion-supporting House Minority Leader, reporter Kelsey Snell of The Washington Post misrepresented the CNS reporter as “an abortion protester” in her headline and story of the event.



Early Thursday, a gunman opened fire on campus at an Oregon community college, killing 13 people and injuring at least 20. Every time a mass shooting happens, society is understandably shocked, saddened and outraged at the lives lost due to unneeded violence. But the liberal media took this a step further, from using the tragic situation to blame the NRA and the Constitution to trying to take away a right that many Americans hold so dear.

Take a look below at some of the actual demands made by the liberal media immediately after the shooting on Twitter.



What started as a rumor was confirmed by the Vatican mid-morning Wednesday: Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who went to jail for refusing to give same-sex marriage licenses, met with Pope Francis secretly last Thursday.



If you’re a certain Democratic presidential frontrunner and desperate for good press, look no further than Hollywood to meet those needs.

Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview (and took some “we”fies) with “hardline journalist” Lena Dunham (Girls) recently and the gushing that ensued would make even the biggest fangirl blush.



What a coincidence -- or not. The moment GOP candidate Mike Huckabee began slamming Planned Parenthood at the podium at this year’s Values Voters Summit, an NBC journalist interrupted. So loudly that some in the crowd began whistling and shouting at her to quiet down.

We know because we were there.



At the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. Friday, GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson slammed the media as elitists who “just don’t get it.” He explained how the media use their position of power to mislead the public by sharing a recent anecdote where a reporter took his words out of context.



The media, school officials and Black Lives Matter activists took to Twitter last night to hype a supposed racist decoration found on the University of Delaware, after a conservative pundit had spoken at the campus.

While Townhall editor and Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich was speaking at the Univ. of Delaware Monday night, students disrupted her speech with a “Black Lives Matter” protest.



Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina each appeared this week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, attempting to market themselves as likeable presidential candidates. (After all, that strategy worked well for Obama!) The Daily Beast noted both of the candidates’ television interviews to “soften their images,” but had completely different responses to each candidate’s appearance.



Forget Ashley Madison; if you’re a scumbag looking for someone to validate your cheating behavior, look no further than The Huffington Post.

Sex therapists Dr. Danielle Harel and Celeste Hirschman make the case for openly cheating in relationships calling it hilariously, “honest outsourcing,” in their article for HuffPo, Sept. 16, “Non-Monogamy Realness: The Pros and Cons of Honest Outsourcing.”



We expect ill-informed and ridiculous things to come out of celebrities' mouths, but even journalists say some really crazy things sometimes. When it comes to talking about the GOP in particular, left-wing media can't help but express their disdain and reveal their bias.

 Here are fifteen of the stupidest tweets from journalists that came out of last night's debate. 



Hollywood proved last night on Twitter that it's not famous for its brains. Here are ten of the stupidest responses from actors and comedians on what they thought about CNN's GOP Debate. 



Editor's Note: See Update Below

Sincerely-held religious beliefs are now the butt of a joke for one major brand.

Tide laundry detergent recently released a commercial poking fun at Christians who still hold to that “old-fashioned” belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman. You know, those “silly” families who have lost their businesses, fought long legal battles or resigned from their jobs for refusing to endorse a same-sex wedding.



There’s nothing worse than when a fun site takes itself too seriously.

That’s what happens when Buzzfeed, the site aimed at millennials for it’s nostalgia-inducing gifs and listicles, ‘weighs in’ on divisive social issues.The results are as groan-worthy as you’d expect by a site ran by 20-something hipsters. 



For the past 13 days, comedian and writer for Vice, Josh Androsky has riled up liberals on social media to donate to Planned Parenthood. He’s done it by mocking GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

 


This past Friday, a Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington state was set on fire. Fortunately no one was hurt. Unfortunately, these few and far between acts of violence committed by lone wolves give the left ammo to make their case that the pro-life side is really pro-death. That’s exactly what Ana Kasparian, one of the hosts of the Young Turks, a popular left-wing talk show on Youtube, did in her September 7 article for Raw Story, “The deadly hypocrisy of the ‘pro-life’ movement.”

In her article, Kasparian used arguments sophisticated enough for a 9th grade debate class to contend that the pro-life movement is filled with “[r]eligious zealots” who’d rather save “non-viable zygotes” than “living, breathing human beings.” Below are her more absurd conclusions.



Academy-Award winning British actress Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks, Sense and Sensibility) doesn’t get why younger women are rejecting the label of feminist.

During a Sept. 2 interview with Variety about her new film A Walk in the Woods, the self-described “radical feminist” complained that she found the reluctance for young actressesto embrace the title of “feminist” simply, “bizarre.”

Thompson then astutely surmised the reason must be because these women don’t want to be treated equally.



Well this certainly falls into the weird news section. Longtime Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner is suing Hasbro toy company for making and selling a toy hamster with her exact name -- after Hasbro was warned earlier this year to discontinue selling it.

Six-time Emmy Award winning journalist Harris Faulkner (Outnumbered, Fox Report Weekend)  wasn’t too happy to find out her unique name was used for a plastic rodent (albeit a cute one) for Hasbro’s popular “Littlest Pet Shop” toy line. Faulkner alleges that her likeness was also used in designing the toy in terms of its complexion, eye shape and eye makeup, according to the suit.
