Arguably it is the single most laughable thing that liberals do -- piously ooze purported concern for babies while otherwise elevating abortion on demand to a sacred right that must be defended at all costs. No leftist in media better evokes this perverted dynamic than MSNBC's clownish master of smarm, Rachel Maddow. Her most recent example might well have set a record for cringes among conservatives who comprise a sliver of her audience.
Stephanie Ruhle lost her grip on reality Tuesday morning when she attempted to draw a contrast between First Lady Melania Trump’s new “Be Best” initiative for children and President Trump’s policies. The MSNBC host’s diatribe featured the absurd claim that enforcing existing immigration laws and cutting taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood would hurt children.
For a news network that is often caricatured as right wing, Fox News Channel peppered a pro-life guest with an awful lot of questions that were skeptical of Iowa's new law that bans abortion at about six weeks pregnancy. In fact, Fox and Friends Sunday co-host Abby Huntsman even cited one poll alleging a majority of Americans want most abortions to be legal, and did not mention that other polling has claimed the opposite.
There’s a swagger in her step as Cecile Richards conducts a book tour around the media surrounding her departure from the summit of Planned Parenthood after 12 years. Call it a victory lap. Everywhere she goes, adoring liberal interviewers ask her if she’ll run for office next. After all, it’s not like she has millions of little skeletons in her closet.
While reviewing the start for Season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale on the Hulu cable television channel, Newsweek Culture Writer Anna Menta claimed that the central topic of the series is “acutely relevant” because “American abortion clinics” are “disappearing faster than you can say ‘Blessed be the fruit.’” As if that assertion wasn’t liberal enough, Menta also stated that “direct connections between right-to-life conservatives and Gilead extremists are hard to ignore.”
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale returned just last week, but it’s already promising to be an insufferable new season of social justice virtue signaling. While the first couple of episodes introduced a new #Resistance narrative, this week takes things a step further by offering a new face for the movement. Namely, it’s time to meet June’s abortion-supporting, marriage-hating, feminist mother.
It may be cliché to say, but in the case of NBC’s high-school drama Rise, it’s true: Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, Rise hits a new low.
As former Planned Parenthood president and pro-abortion activist Cecile Richards appeared as a guest on Tuesday's MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle practically begged her to do more to convince Americans that Planned Parenthood is not really "the abortion store" as she ranted about pro-lifers painting it as such.
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota gave former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards a forum to brag about the pro-abortion group's success in pushing its agenda into ObamaCare, and to complain about those who wish to end taxpayer funding of the prominent abortion provider. She also gushed over her liberal guest's "legendary" mother, former Democratic Governor Ann Richards, and asked if she planned to run for political office.
It’s not everyday the media tell stories like this, but PBS just did: Rehana, a pregnant girl refugee, is refusing abortion despite her husband abandoning her. On April 25, PBS NewsHour continued its coverage of the Rohingya “crisis,” which others say amounts to genocide.
We’re nearing the end of NBC’s ultra-liberal high school drama Rise, with just four episodes to go. But unlike Tuesday’s episode, titled “This Will God Willing Get Better,” the show just continues to get worse. Catholic student Simon (Ted Sutherland) appears to finally give in to his feelings for his male castmate in the school’s controversial play, “Spring Awakening,” abortion is pushed on pregnant teen Sasha (Erin Kommor), and the underage students perform more sexually explicit songs.
The new April 30 issue of People magazine is the "Beautiful Issue" featuring "41 pages of gorgeous, inspiring stars." One page hails 18-year-old actress Yara Shahidi, under the headline "Beautiful & Brilliant." A star of ABC's Black-ish and now Grown-ish on Freeform is a big Hillary Clinton fan, but still thinks she can proclaim her big issue is "the sanctity of life." And she endorsed Hillary for President in 2016.
