Planned Parenthood handed out their annual Media Excellence Awards last week. They used to be called "Maggie Awards," after their founder Margaret Sanger. They proclaimed "We are so thankful for their fearless and honest reporting about what is at risk when people are denied one of their most fundamental human rights — their access to health care." But some of these don't award "excellence" -- they award fake news in defense of Planned Parenthood.
The passage of abortion laws in Georgia and Alabama have caused a flurry of media reactions, including many misleading ones. At least 16 articles claimed or suggested women would be jailed for having abortions, even though the laws’ text is available for all to read, and specifies women will not face prosecution.
Not content to just drag Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s name through the mud in that ridiculous witch hunt during his confirmation hearing in the fall, liberals are still determined to sully his name at every possible opportunity. The latest example is comparing the Supreme Court Justice to R. Kelly, a Grammy Award winning singer who was arrested for sexually abusing multiple underage girls and women.
While all but ignoring the liberal media’s massive screw-up with the smearing of the Covington Kids, CNN media reporter and “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter took time out of the show to tout how Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez utilized social media to spread her falsehoods and socialist propaganda. And, of course, the all-female liberal panel was happy to oblige by singing her praises and suggesting that fact-checks against her were somehow sexist.
Liberal cable news outlets were outraged over the weekend when Republicans condemned the thuggish behavior of leftwing protesters and political groups repeatedly attempting to disrupt the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh. CNN and MSNBC hosts urgently rushed to defend the throngs of activists, in a melodramatic panic over the newest addition to the GOP leadership’s lexicon: “mob.”
Tensions were high on Thursday’s Deadline: White House as host Nicolle Wallace and her outraged panel fumed over Rudy Giuliani’s recent remarks about porn star Stormy Daniels. As the MSNBC host's frustration boiled over, she speculated whether the women in the Trump family were, “numb,” “dead inside,” or “paid off.”
Over the past week, CNN has aired more than two dozen stories inviting speculation and gossip about the supposedly mysterious "disappearance" of First Lady Melania Trump, who has been recuperating from kidney surgery.
To start off his first week in office, Donald Trump spent the morning signing executive orders, one of which was reversing a pro-abortion policy from the Obama Administration. The “Mexico City” policy, more commonly called the “Global Gag” policy by the left, bans federal funds from being given to organizations who pay for or promote abortions overseas. It was originally enacted by Ronald Reagan in 1984 and was rescinded in 2009 by President Obama. Now eight years later, President Trump has reinstated the policy, and some liberal journalists’ displeasure with the news came across in their reporting and their tweets.
Reacting to Huffington Post reporter Laura Bassett highlighting during Tuesday’s Hardball that a Donald Trump advisor recently “called for Hillary to face a firing squad” for her handling of Benghazi in light of Trump’s new gun comments, MSNBC host Chris Matthews used the occasion to bloviate about how he “keep[s] wondering what she did in Benghazi” that has people so upset.
Ever since Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton started her campaign to be elected president in the 2016 election, the former senator and secretary of state has been criticized for not being available to answer questions from members of the press.
In an apparent attempt to diminish that complaint, Clinton took part in an online discussion on Monday, when she responded to many participants on the Facebook social website, including reporters Laura Bassett of the Huffington Post, Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post and Dan Merica of the Cable News Network.
The Washington Post met the Huffington Post on Sunday -- in the "Date Lab" feature in The Washington Post Magazine. Huff-Po political reporter Laura Bassett went on a blind date with lawyer Eli Savit.
In a post-article interview with the blog Fishbowl DC, Bassett suggested that her date’s unsuitably non-feminist view of ObamaCare’s birth control mandate fizzled any sexual attraction that may have come about:
Women oppose abortion.
Pro-abortion forces in the Democratic party, unable to face the facts, have instead engaged in a head-spinning, mind-numbing campaign to portray political victories for abortion as motivated by anti-woman animus.
