The liberal media flocked to elevate the some 400-plus pro-abortion protests held Tuesday as they continued to rail against the wave of pro-life legislation designed to protect unborn life. ABC, CBS, NBC, and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision took time out of their evening newscasts to praise the protesters and 2020 Democrats who attended. CBS was the lone network to cover the rallies ahead of the severe and dangerous storms sweeping the Midwest.
In response to pro-life legislation being passed through various state legislatures, Planned Parenthood and other activists launched what they call their nationwide "Day of Action" on Tuesday in protest to these laws. Not surprisingly, that included Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen being treated to a friendly interview on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports.
Liberals -- like Joe Lockhart on CNN on Monday -- claim Fox News isn't "journalism" because it was created "to promote conservative Republican political ideas." For the contrast, see MSNBC's most popular host Rachel Maddow on Monday promoting the passionate liberal/Democrat boilerplate of Dr. Leana Wen, the new leader of Planned Parenthood, and the pro-abortion protests planned for Tuesday. It's like the abortion-rights version of a Larry King infomercial on arthritis medication.
Both The New York Times and Washington Post blasted the free speech position taken by President Donald Trump last week. World leaders, led by New Zealand, united around the Christchurch Call to demand stronger internet censorship. This followed the deadly Christchurch terror attack that killed 51 Muslims. President Trump not only refused to sign on, but established a censorship reporting hotline.
During the Third Hour Today show on Tuesday, the network broadcast seized on left-wing outrage over Alabama Public Television deciding not to air an episode of the PBS children’s cartoon Arthur that included a gay wedding. Hosts accused the state of “homophobia and intolerance” for objecting to the controversial program.
Tuesday afternoon on CNN, Inside Politics and CNN Right Now compared conservatives and Republicans nationwide seeking to advance pro-life legislation to the scandal-ridden Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) after he made his comments endorsing infanticide. Their rationale? Well, in both cases, those two sides found themselves “on the defensive.” Yes, really.
The academic elite behind the prevalent philosophy in tech censorship is ready to blame the GOP for pretty much everything. A study produced by three Iowa State University and University of Kansas professors has studied the link between political rhetoric and white nationalist hate crimes.
Oh, Alabama. Tsk, tsk. You already provoked the attention of Perpetual Outrage, Inc.(™) by trying to make your state safe for the unborn. But your willingness allow parents to raise the kids they do have without the guidance of federally funded gay propaganda is really too much. This disdain for progressive pieties will not stand.
Tuesday The View co-hosts melted down over former White House counsel Don Mcgahn defying a Democrat subpoena to testify over the Mueller investigation. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin compared President Trump to Richard Nixon, fuming that he should be impeached, while Whoopi Goldberg worried that Trump and his supporters wanted to bring back segregation and take away voting rights from blacks.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show seized on a highly questionable survey claiming that many college students across the U.S. were being forced to choose between “tuition or food.” Correspondent Jacob Soboroff even went so far as to claim that “The strong U.S. economy is a myth to many American college students.”
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday laughed at a new trend by militant leftists: Dumping milkshakes on politicians they don’t like. Co-host Tony Dokoupil began with a whimsical recounting: “In the latest of a series of attacks on right-wing politicians, Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage was doused with a milkshake yesterday. That was actually salted caramel if anyone is wondering.”
Officials of the 100% Raw Powerlifting Federation said they were duped when a biological male registered for the recent women's competition in Charlottesville. The federation eventually stripped "Mary" Gregory of the world records he set that night, and now, according to a one-sided story by the Washington Post's sympathetic reporter Rick Maese, he is mystified that the governing organization insists on recognizing athletes by their birth gender.
Many people in Hollywood think they know better than the rest of us when it comes to politics and who should occupy the White House. One of those individuals -- Robert De Niro -- has been profanely disparaging President Trump every time the actor gets near a microphone. That behavior was in full display on Sunday evening, when De Niro was supposed to announce recipients of lifelong accomplishment trophies at the American Icon Awards gala in Los Angeles. Of course, he saw that as an opportunity to slam the President by claiming that putting the GOP official in prison as the way to “Make America Great Again.”
Actress Julianna Margulies (ER, The Good Wife) was on The Late Show Monday evening to promote her new television show, The Hot Zone, when liberal host Stephen Colbert sharply turned to politics. Margulies admitted that she had “gone insane” when Donald Trump was elected and started having nightmares of herself screaming at him in the Oval Office.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's Kasie DC on MSNBC, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg predicted that a circuit court panel would have to be made up of "whack jobs" to side in favor of recently passed laws banning abortion. She also joined with Jeremy Peters of the New York Times to repeat misleading polling claiming that a solid majority of Americans support Roe v. Wade and therefore abortion.
