Actor Dean Cain calls himself “pro-choice,” but that didn’t stop him starring in an upcoming film revealing the horror story of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Cain stars as Detective James “Woody” Wood in Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer, which opens in as many as 750 theaters October 12. MRC Culture interviewed Cain Sept. 21 at Family Research Council’s 2018 Values Voter Summit.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Tucker Carlson Tonight on FNC to promote his film on the trial of infamous abortion doctor and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell, actor Dean Cain not only recounted the challenges he faced in producing and advertising the film, but he also called out the double standard employed by liberals on issues of sexual assault.
The New York Times’ co-lead story naturally dealt with the Kavanaugh controversy: “Nominee’s Fate Is Pivotal Point In U.S. Politics – An Apex in the Struggle Over Women’s Status.” Reporters portrayed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, and last-minute sexual-assault accusations, through the prism of Kavanaugh taking away women’s rights through gutting Roe v. Wade as a future member of the Supreme Court, and sexist male Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee failing to believe a wronged woman.
National Public Radio wouldn't accept the word "abortionist" in a proposed underwriting announcement for a movie on Kermit Gosnell. They insisted on "doctor." The Gosnell movie-makers said "abortion doctor"? NPR said no....even though NPR has used the term "abortion doctor" routinely in stories.
Streaming giant Netflix released the documentary Reversing Roe on Sept. 13, with its directors touting it as an impartial investigation into both sides of the contentious abortion debate in America. As reported by MRC Culture on Sept. 18, the film did not live up to its lofty expectations as hours of interview footage with pro-life women were excluded from the film.
Hulu’s latest original series The First, which debuted on September 14, is an interesting, non-partisan science-fiction series set in the 2030s surrounding the trials of NASA astronauts on the first mission to Mars …most of the time. Starring raving lefty lunatic Sean Penn, you might be surprised to learn the series manages to keep politics out of the main plot. Sadly, it fails to leave its liberal agenda completely behind.
Netflix is celebrating after winning big at the Emmys. But the streaming giant can’t claim a win on its new documentary concerning abortion: while Netflix says it tells the “whole story,” women abortion advocates showed up 13 times more than their pro-life counterparts. And it isn’t that producers couldn’t find knowledgeable women against abortion. They did, but literally “days” of footage featuring them ended up on the cutting room floor.
There’s finally a ray of hope for the liberals that have been demanding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s head on a silver platter. One paltry accusation of sexual assault has been levied at the SCOTUS candidate and the progressive world is having a field day. Hollywood liberals have taken to social media to blast Kavanaugh for his alleged abusive past (if one unsubstantiated allegation can be called a past), because it’s the only thing they’ve got to delay his confirmation.
The New York Times again provided favorable, euphemistic coverage to the nation’s largest abortion provider (er, "health care" provider), while finding ideology only among its enemies. Reporter Kate Zernike introduced Planned Parenthood’s new leader Dr. Leana Wen, while avoiding the word "abortion" as long as she could: "Planned Parenthood, under fire from conservatives in Washington and state capitols..."
Planned Parenthood’s new president calls her organization “transparent,” even as she insists abortion consists of only 3% of its services. That’s a number even The Washington Post has debunked. But, according to her, this isn’t “political.” On Sept. 12, the nation’s largest abortion provider announced its incoming president: Dr. Lena Wen. In response, ABC’s The View invited Wen on as a guest the next day.
Wednesday's The Beat on MSNBC displayed the latest example of the liberal media's tendency to trumpet polls that seem to confirm their liberal views while ignoring other polling which undermines those views. During a discussion about the possibility that the U.S. Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade if Judge Brett Kavanaugh were confirmed, host Ari Melber turned to pro-abortion activist Ricki Stern and cited a recent Axios poll as he posed:
The left is determined to try to normalize abortion as much as possible in today’s world. The most recent episode of the CW’s Burden of Truth gets downright flippant with its dialogue between female characters discussing abortion.
