It’s not everyday that CNN tells a story with a pro-life message, but the media outlet just did – by reporting on a woman who was tragically raped and failed an attempted an abortion, but then fell in love with her baby. On Aug. 27, CNN Newsroom covered the sexual violence suffered by the Rohingya at the hands of the Myanmar government. The exact number of rape victims is unknown, but CNN international correspondent Alexandra Field only needed to focus on one to exemplify the horror that some women refugees say they face.
From the endless mockery of Christianity and Christian beliefs, to the promotion of all kinds of sexual and gender identity exploration among minors and adults alike, to liberal issues like abortion, Netflix’s newest teen dramedy Insatiable is definitely not anything I would have let my kids watch when they were impressionable, teens. The series is rated TV-MA, but it's clear they're aiming for a much younger audience.
On Thursday's Fox and Friends, the show devoted more than six minutes to the case of a couple who refused advice to have an abortion after two different doctors claimed their baby had a terminal brain development condition. It turned out that, after the mother, Ariann Corpstein, gave birth, they discovered that it was, in fact, a misdiagnosis, and the baby's condition is treatable.
Bristol Palin has been a media target for years, due to her mother Sarah’s political profile. One vicious attacker even suggested she should abort one of her unborn children. However, that isn’t stopping her from talking to MTV about what it was like to be a young mom.
Comedian David Cross insists that his stand-up routine is not political or anti-Donald Trump in any way. But during his most recent show for a bunch of Trump supporters in Utah, local news reported that he joked about beating the president into a “bloody pulp and then urinating and defecating on him.”
On Tuesday's MSNBC Live, fill-in host Chris Jansing displayed the latest example of liberal journalists picking up on misleading polling on how much Americans support abortion, as she spoke with a group of pro-life activists who are lobbying Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Last Friday’s cancellation of Netflix’s new late-night series, The Break with Michelle Wolf, should be a clear indicator that the left’s outrage and anger towards conservatives isn’t doing much for cultural enrichment, much less carving out a compelling comedic platform.
The new Pennsylvania grand jury report detailing reports of Catholic Church sex abuse is horrific. And the twisted coverage by some in the media isn’t making it better. On Thursday, Salon published a piece by politics writer Amanda Marcotte with the headline, “Behind the latest Catholic sex abuse scandal: The church’s problem is male dominance.” According to Marcotte, hiding abusers is consistent with the Catholic push for abortion restrictions. But, as even the grand jury report suggests, abortion aids abusers.
The new trailer for Gosnell teases the horror story of a murderous abortionist and his trial – including scenes of empty media seats in the courtroom. It’s right. I know because I was there. The trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, in which witnesses described baby abortion survivors “swimming" in toilets “to get out,” attracted a mere 12 – 15 reporters (many of whom, I noticed, were local). Only after 56 days did all three broadcast networks report on Gosnell. But the story is about to garner a new wave of attention with GVN Releasing opening the film, Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer, to as many as 750 theaters October 12.
This year, two countries held significant votes on elective abortion. But the networks only covered the aftermath of one of them – the country that voted for abortion. On Aug. 9, Argentina’s Senate voted against a bill that would have permitted elective abortions up to 14 weeks. Nearly three months earlier, on May 25, Irish citizens voted to repeal their country’s ban on elective abortion to clear the pathway for abortion up to 12 weeks.
New York Times stringer Daniel Politi teamed with the paper’s Brazil bureau chief Ernesto Londono to cover a failed attempt in Argentina to legalize abortion in the first 14 weeks of a pregenancy: “Though Abortion Bill Failed in Argentina, a Movement Took Hold -- A Narrow Loss Inspires Women.” The text box to Friday’s story assured the paper’s pro-choice readership: “‘Abortion will be legal soon. Very soon,’ one woman said.” The online version carried a Reuters photo of “An abortion-rights supporter in Buenos Aires on Thursday after a bill to legalize abortion was defeated.” Who, by the way, was in the act of throwing a colored smoke bomb. The text ignored the eruptions of violence in the aftermath of the defeat of the abortion bill, which it usually does when it comes to left-wing protest violence
In light of new conservative Supreme Court nominations, the left has been in abject fear over any possible restriction on abortion, and has been lashing out. Their new target is the Hollywood production of Roe v. Wade. And although director Nick Loeb has remained adamant that things are going smoothly and that he has been maintaining the cast and production levels he had originally planned to have, the scathing “fake news” reports have been circling his project.
