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.
Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler broke out the swagger on Wednesday, beginning his latest article: "President Trump wrote an opinion article for USA Today on Oct. 10 regarding proposals to expand Medicare to all Americans — known as Medicare-for-All — in which almost every sentence contained a misleading statement or a falsehood." But some of these are predictions, not facts. Does Kessler have a crystal ball in his office? This is just crystal bull.
An absolute classic out of the Dem/MSM playbook. Take a huge, expensive, inefficient, government program. Find someone with a heartwrenching story who is helped by it. Highlight that story as if it represents the essence of the program in question. Bonus points if you can get someone to get choked up on camera. And thus it was that today's Morning Joe featured a segment in which NBC reporter Morgan Radford traveled to Ohio ahead of President Trump's rally there. She found Colleen, a mother whose daughter had developed cancer at age seven, who said that "it was life-changing, what the ACA [Obamacare] did for us."
In the season three premiere of Bull on CBS, Dr. Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) returns to work following a heart attack, and brings along a not-so-fun case for his team. A young mother will die within a few weeks if she doesn’t get a new liver, which her health insurance company has denied the claim for. And, to the team’s shock and chagrin, they’re representing the insurance company!
On September 14th, the Twitter followers of University of Virginia professor William Bradford Wilcox woke up to something dismaying. In a tweet, Dr. Wilcox drew attention to two advertisements put out by the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS). The advertisements implore young teenagers and young adults to use protection during sexual intercourse. Hardly tweet-worthy, you say? Never doubt how frivolous government agencies can get when it comes to family issues.
On Friday's Real Time show, HBO host Bill Maher not only complained about what he called "patriotic bulls***" at national sporting events, but he also lauded former Secretary of State John Kerry as someone who "told the truth" about the Vietnam War, and gave him a forum to take credit for the program that fights AIDS in Africa without noting that it was President George W. Bush who pushed for its creation.
On the eve of New Hampshire’s primary day, CNN’s New Day co-host John Berman interviewed Granite State congressional candidate Levi Sanders and, in addition to inquiring about why his socialist father Bernie hasn’t endorsed him, but he asked him to state what the President has done well and Sanders struggled to answer.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher and actor Jim Carrey celebrated recent Democratic candidates running on far-left platforms and identifying themselves as "socialists," leading Carrey to proclaim: "We have to say yes to socialism -- to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing."
During a 10-minute break Wednesday afternoon in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, CNN’s assembled panelists and supposed journalists boasted of Rhode Island Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse decrying money in politics to Judge Kavanaugh and bemoaning the nominee refusing to commit to saving portions of ObamaCare.
On Wednesday, CBS This Morning joined CNN in highlighting the case of an illegal immigrant who is suing the government because her one-year-old child tragically died after leaving an ICE detention center where she allegedly contracted an infection. After a complete report ran, co-host John Dickerson incorrectly hinted that the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy was to blame for the death, suggesting that the government agency was not ready for the additional number of detainees, prompting agreement from co-host Gayle King. However, not only were the pair detained and released under the old policy before zero tolerance took effect, but the total number of detainee deaths in FY2018 so far appears to be on track to be no greater than FY2016 which included most of President Barack Obama's final year in office.
The Immigration and Nationality Act mandates that all immigrants and refugees undergo a medical screening examination to determine whether they have an inadmissible health condition. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has technical instructions for medical examination of prospective immigrants in their home countries before they are permitted to enter the U.S. They are screened for communicable and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis, polio, measles, mumps and HIV.
If you are frustrated by wait times to see your doctor, the cost of health insurance and prescription drugs, just wait until there may be no doctor to see. NBC News recently broadcast a story about how fewer young people are entering the medical profession. The network cited a report from the Association of American Medical Colleges that “projected a shortage of 42,600 to 121,300 physicians by 2030, up from its 2017 projected shortage of 40,800 to 104,900 doctors.”
