PALM BEACH, FL — While most attention has been focused on immigrants trying to enter the United States over America's southern border, there is legal migration taking place that has been largely ignored, though it may have at least as much economic and political impact as the other. People are moving out of high-tax states to Florida and other states with lower tax burdens.
The abortion über alles crowd seems to be making a full-court press at the moment. The governors of New York and Virginia are vying to see which can boast the most bloodthirsty “women’s health” regime in the nation. As the competition currently stands, Virginia’s Ralph Northam has proposed legal abortion until the child’s first Tooth Fairy visit, citing the financial burden to mothers and the strain of staying awake long enough to complete the furtive dental transaction. However, Cuomo is expected to counter by arguing the wellbeing of the mother can be seriously impacted the moment the child is required to take up a band instrument.
On Wednesday morning, Fox News Channel gave attention to another state where Democrats are pushing for an extreme plan to legalize abortion up until birth, this time in Virginia. Over the past week, FNC has also given attention to the recently passed legalization law in New York that has so far been ignored by CNN, MSNBC, and the broadcast networks. Hours later, Democratic Governor Ralph Northam would go further on WTOP-FM by endorsing the killing of children outside the womb after having been “kept comfortable” and “a discussion” that “would ensue between the physicians and mother.”
It’s been a full week since the state of New York legalized late-term abortions, yet none of the major national TV networks has bothered to mention the story. This deafening silence is in stark contrast to the alarmist coverage seen when a state passes legislation that the media see as curtailing “abortion rights.”
The weekend editions of Fox and Friends on Fox News Channel spent a substantial amount of time highlighting the "outcry" over an "extreme' new law recently signed by New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo that would allow abortions to be performed all the way up until right before birth. The weekend anchors even hosted an OB/GYN who argued that an abortion to save a woman's life would never be necessary in the third trimester as he also recalled receiving threats since he spoke out on the issue.
CNN opens its 6 AM New Day hour with Alisyn Camerota highlighting this Washington Post headline: "Amid Incendiary Rhetoric, Targets of Trump's Words Become Targets of Bombs." Then, under a Breaking News banner, CNN runs a clip of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo [brother of CNN's Chris Cuomo] saying: "This is political terrorism. This is American terrorism. This is red versus blue terrorism."
At this unique moment in American history, liberals and conservatives have something in common: an abhorrence of government prosecutors run amok. Republicans are livid at the federal fishing expedition known as the Mueller investigation. Bit players have been dragooned into an endlessly politicized probe. The media has taken sides; nonstop leaks have tainted the process.
Now that Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo tried to backtrack Friday on remarks from Wednesday that America “was never that great,” the CBS Evening News broke the silence by the network’s news operation with a 26-second news brief. The move followed CBS’s The Late Show from Thursday when even liberal host Stephen Colbert and former Obama staffers-turned-Pod Save America hosts blasted Cuomo’s gaffe.
While the journalists at CBS News have still refused to cover New York Governor Andrew Cuomo telling a crowd of supporters on Wednesday that America “was never that great,” Late Show host Stephen Colbert pressed a trio of former Obama White House staffers about gaffe on Thursday night’s program, aired early Friday morning.
One would think a major gaffe by a prominent governor and potential 2020 presidential candidate would garner significant attention from the broadcast networks. However, since Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told a crowd on Wednesday that America “was never that great,” NBC has only provided 37 seconds of coverage to the controversy, while ABC and CBS have ignored the story altogether.
Now-former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's serial and often violent mistreatment of women chronicled on Monday at The New Yorker is yet another example of scandalous behavior which was widely known among leaders in both the Democratic Party and the media elites that somehow never surfaced in public for years (a few of many additional examples would include former Today Show host Matt Lauer, former PBS/CBS newsman Charlie Rose, and retired NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw). The Empire State's chief law enforcement officer's abuse of women was so widely known that an associate editor at the center-right Manhattan-based City Journal predicted Schneiderman's ultimate demise six months ago.
Of course, following the resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) for allegations of beating his various girlfriends over the years, a key concern for the liberal media has been ensuring his litany of litigation against President Trump would continue onward. It was a major point of discussion during CNN Newsroom Tuesday afternoon as host Brianna Keilar questioned CNN political commentator and New York City journalist Errol Louis about the future of the numerous lawsuits.
