Yesterday, the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine released a study on the physical health effects of abortion and the left-wing media jumped on it. While most media outlets simply reported what the publication stated, Salon decided to take the extra step of inserting their own lefty conclusions.
Once the DNC announced it would not permit Fox News to moderate any debates for the 2020 Democratic primary, it was obvious liberal media bias would be on full display during the campaign. As of recently, it was decided not only will MSNBC be hosting the first debate, but Rachel Maddow will be one of the moderators. On Tuesday, Maddow appeared on Late Night with Seth Myers, aired early Wednesday morning, to weigh in with her thoughts on the upcoming debate.
Univision has fired what amounts to its opening salvo in the 2020 U.S. presidential election: a deviously pro-Democrat promotion of the stances the candidates take on the nation’s immigration policy mess. The network that made a supreme effort to elect Hillary in 2016 is now touting the results of a immigration policy questionnaire it sent to the top 23 Democrat candidates for President (the total number of Democrats who have filed their candidacies with the Federal Election Commission is currently more than 160).
This past May, NPR released a guideline for the terminology that should be used in regards to the abortion debate. The guideline stated, “Babies are not babies until they are born” and abortion clinics are “health clinics.” And war is peace and freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength -- just like Orwell said. This morning, following NPR’s lead, The Guardian announced that it will no longer call the Georgia abortion bill “the heartbeat bill” because it is “not medically accurate.” It will now be called “ the six week abortion ban.”
The media are often referred to as the symbolic fourth branch of government, however, that does not guarantee it is committed to delivering the truth and the facts to the American people. Essentially, in what will be an obvious observation to most, the media has become an extension of the Democratic Party, filled with liberal pundits and talking heads rather than neutral journalists and unbiased reporters. As a result, the citizens of this country find themselves playing the role of journalist on a daily basis, working to debunk the lies the media has spewed and find the facts by themselves.
The liberal media are suffering once again from a severe case of cognitive dissonance. The cries and demands for the declassification of documents relating to the Mueller investigation were ubiquitous across CNN and MSNBC for weeks on end. “We need transparency” was the rallying cry across all the broadcast networks. The hypocrisy of liberal talking heads, otherwise known as “fair and balanced journalists,” was placed on full display once President Trump ordered Attorney General Barr to declassify all information and documents regarding the Muller investigation within legal limitations.
A recent edition of Univision Sunday political affairs show Al Punto proves that much of the impetus behind talk of impeachment still comes from the media and can, at times, be too much even for senior Democrats.
As sure as the Sun rises in the East, Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos will find a way to renew his all-too-frequent calls for anti-gun legislation. A recent opinion column mashes violence in Mexico with incidents in the United States in order to make the same old points.
With the outbreak of controversy over recent state abortion laws aiming to challenge the United States' currently extreme pro-abortion regime, pro-life voices have notably been able to make their case on several of the nation's top Hispanic television networks.
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.
In a rare, balanced segment on Univision's weekly public affairs show Al Punto, anchor Jorge Ramos invoked Reagan and brought abortion as an issue directly to the forefront. Check out the full post as Ramos and pro-Trump activist Paloma Zúñiga discuss a classic Reagan truism, and whether Hispanics are really culturally conservative as pertains to abortion.
We've been told in recent years that to be critical of the news is to be critical of democracy itself. So it was a bit shocking that in the newspaper that screeches on each front page that "Democracy dies in darkness" ran its own columnist asking "Do we owe it to society — and ourselves — to tune out the news?"
