From their usual lack of coverage on the annual March for Life to treating pro-lifers as wholesale crazies, it’s clear that the media doesn’t want to face the intimate realities of legal baby killing. The recent film about the trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, not only tells his story, but shows how reluctant the media is to touch abortion, even if events surrounding it involve first degree murder.

 


The leftist British newspaper found "Broadway legend" Patti LuPone at the end of her rope in London.

“I want the quiet life,” she sighs longingly, then immediately goes into a furious rant about how “the Christian right in America is no different from al-Qaida. Print that, because someone needs to say it out loud!”



NewsBusters has ranked Young Sheldon one of television’s worst shows towards Christians, and October 11’s episode “A Financial Secret and Fish Sauce” provided viewers with a reminder of why. Sheldon (Iain Armitage) has been so troubled by the need to keep a secret from his mother at the behest of his father that he can’t even go to the bathroom. To distract himself, he stays at his best friend’s house for his very first sleep-over. His friend, Tam (Ryan Phuong), is a Vietnamese Catholic and the family practices their heritage and religion at their home, which does not go unnoticed by Sheldon.

 



The New York Times is still leading the cheers for Democrat Beto O’Rourke in his quest to unseat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in November. In Wednesday’s lead story for the National section, Elizabeth Dias devoted 1,900 words to sudden respect for Christian evangelicals: “In Deep-Red Texas, Evangelical Women Trickle Toward O’Rourke -- Citing moral imperative to fight Trump’s agenda.”



A new HBO documentary is striving to shed light on the untold stories of Christian schoolgirls captured and held hostage by Islamic terrorists. On Oct. 2, HBO released a trailer for its upcoming documentary “Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped by Boko Haram,” which tells the horrific story of Christian schoolgirls or “The Chibok Girls” kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014. The film, set for release on Oct. 22, aims to make their voices heard.



The Catholic Church was the target for South Park on the second episode of the Comedy Central show’s 22nd season titled “A Boy and a Priest” which aired on October 3. The show’s angle was to mock them mercilessly with priest pedophilia jokes.



It’s become surprising when a network show portrays Christianity and religion in a somewhat positive light. The pilot episode of CBS’s new show, God Friended Me, does this and actually encourages some productive conversation between Christians and atheists.



I want to tell you about my upcoming book, “Jesus Is Risen, Paul and the Early Church,” for release Oct. 2. This is my fourth Christian-themed book and I am more enthused with each one. Ever since I became a believer, I've been eager to share my experiences. Ever since I began to study the Bible, I've been anxious to share what I've learned with people who may be skeptics or unsure, like I used to be.



Tuesday afternoon, Politico ran the headline “Pompeo raises eyebrows with appearance at politically charged event.” Yes, you guessed it — that event is this weekend's Values Voter Summit, which Politico reports is sponsored by the “deeply conservative Family Research Council.” The 1,257 word article goes on to cite various past State Department officials who express concern about Secretary Mike Pompeo addressing a “partisan affair.”



Just 45 words into a 9000 word, 18 page profile of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the obsession of The New Yorker becomes clear: The White House Press Secretary is a “conservative Christian.” In the story, the faith of Sanders is dissected and mentioned over and over again by writer Page Williams in the September 24, 2018 issue. If that wasn’t creepy enough, Williams repeatedly felt the need to call out just who happens to be a Christian within the Trump administration.  



The opening monologue of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing September 17 on NBC, included a little of the usual political slams worked into Hollywood entertainment award shows. The ceremony hosts, Saturday Night Live’s "Weekend Update" hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, took swipes at Christian conservatives and Roseanne fans.



On paper, the new Amazon Prime original series Forever should be great. It stars Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph as June and Oscar, a middle-class married couple in California. Those two actors together should have made it a hilarious comedy. Instead, Forever was a rambling and pointless slog and, in the second episode, unnecessarily insulting towards Christians.
