In an article posted on Monday, The Guardian attacked what the liberal Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the “Slate of Hate”-- a set of bills designed to protect religious liberty in Tennessee. The headline asserted that the state is “set to ‘legalize hate.’”
Kate Bennett, a White House reporter for CNN, was one of the first people to break the news on Tuesday that Second Lady Karen Pence would teach art part-time at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia, where students may be refused admission or have their enrollment discontinued if a “parent or guardian” violates a “biblical lifestyle.” Then on Wednesday, the reporter tried to defuse criticism that she was too negative regarding the private Catholic school by tweeting: “I am not partisan.”
We just got girl Boy Scouts, and now J. Crew is flipping the switch to give us boy feminists.
NBC’s pro-LGBT propaganda arm, “NBC OUT,” recently published a piece about proposed “anti-LGBT bills” that will supposedly undermine “civil rights.” The article began with the story of “married” homosexual men who “became foster parents to two children, both under the age of 2.”
Andrew Breiner carried water for socially-liberal activists and their congressional allies in a Monday item for Roll Call. Breiner, who previously worked for the left-wing website Think Progress, hyped how "House Democrats are criticizing congressional Republicans for...their refusal to call the [Orlando] massacre an anti-LGBT hate crime." The writer then spotlighted Twitter posts from 16 Republicans politicians and included the score that each received from "leading LGBT equality group," the Human Rights Campaign.
CNN's Don Lemon acted more like a socially-left activist than a journalist on Friday's New Day, as he moderated a panel discussion on a proposed religious liberty law in Mississippi. Lemon twice misrepresented what the law actually says, and asked a LGBT activist, "Religious liberty — is that just a code for discrimination — I don't want to provide services to certain people? Isn't that just a code?" He was more explicit later in the segment: "People in certain professions...wouldn't have to serve certain people — which, at its base, is discrimination."
Last November, Terrence Bean was taken into custody in Portland, Oregon following an indictment by a jury that charged him with multiple sex crimes against minors. Now additional child sexual abuse charges have been made against him. Why isn't the media covering this? Because he's a prominent gay leader, that's why.
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN's Michaela Pereira broke out the kid-glove treatment for one of the plaintiffs in the same-sex "marriage" cases being heard by the Supreme Court. Pereira touted how Jim Obergefell has "become the poster child" for such partnerships, and gushingly complimented her guest: "And you do it very well, I must add."
CNN stood out on Sunday and Monday for actually covering the sex abuse charges against Terry Bean, a "major fundraiser for President Obama," as correspondent Erin McPike labeled him. The cable network devoted three full segments and two news briefs to the criminal charges against Bean, who is also the co-founder of the left-wing homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign. As of Monday morning, the Big Three networks have yet to cover the story on their morning and evening newscasts.
It’s open season. Since the media attacked former NFL coach and NBC sports analyst Tony Dungy for saying he wouldn’t have picked openly gay player Michael Sam during the draft, the sports media now has its pitchforks and torches out for anyone in the NFL guilty of thought crimes. ESPN and CBS are going after David Tyree, a former New York Giants wide receiver (who’s miraculous “helmet catch” gave the team victory in Super Bowl XLII), who was just hired as Giants Director of Player Development.
Tyree’s sin: he’s an open Christian and supporter of traditional marriage.
