Bruce Japsen, a Forbes contributor who writes about health care, defended the continued federal funding of Planned Parenthood’s 700 health centers. He said that people calling for defunding were essentially saying if patients “like their [Planned Parenthood] health center, they can’t keep it.” Japsen made that defense during a debate over Planned Parenthood defunding on “Forbes on FOX” on Aug. 8. His position was in the minority, with several others guests saying the group should lose federal funding. Later in the broadcast he also refused to address the “picking apart of human bodies” by arguing there is a health care... continue reading
Businessmen often get a bad rep in the news media, but that wasn’t the case in a Barron’s profile of a former CEO who now works to help former prisoners because of his Christian faith. “Answering God’s Call,” was the cover story of the Barron’s weekly business newspaper on Aug. 3. The paper profiled former Wells Fargo CEO Danny Ludeman, who stepped down from his position of 15 years in order to focus on his faith. “That was very much my retirement plan,” Ludeman told Barron’s. “Learn to love God with all my heart and soul, and learn to love... continue reading
Gracing the cover of August’s Bloomberg Businessweek was a smiling, daisy-garlanded head of a billionaire tycoon and a headline that suggested he is a “feminist icon.” That tycoon was the “Oracle of Omaha” and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway himself: Warren Buffett, a huge donor to birth control, and the abortion industry through his Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation. The magazine devoted a four-page spread to the story of “how the billionaire’s family secretly funded a revolution in birth control.” But that isn’t all he has funded. Buffett has given more than $1 billion to abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood which is... continue reading
The man called America’s “Boss of the Year,” at least, by ABC News, is facing problems, including the loss of top talent after giving a massive boost to many of his employees’ salaries. Seattle-based Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price announced in April 2015 that he would implement a minimum $70,000 salary for all his employees. Back then, ABC, NBC and CBS pounced on the story and praised Price. Together, they spent 18 minutes, 44 seconds praising Price, but almost entirely ignored the possibility of negative repercussions. Now that “backlash” is here, according to The New York Times. But the broadcast... continue reading
Lefty billionaires Warren Buffett and George Soros, who have used their fortunes to influence the media, could learn from the example of the late media mogul Roy H. Park Sr. In the 2015 revised edition of Sons in the Shadow , Roy H. Park Jr. described how his father founded Park Communications and built his nearly $1-billion fortune. His company owned “seven TV stations, 21 radio stations and 144 newspaper publications in 24 states” when he passed away in 1993, but the younger Park says his father steered clear of allowing his political opinions to influence the content these outlets... continue reading
Is political activism included in your phone plan? T-Mobile seems to have no problem selling it to their current and potential customers. On Sunday, the wireless phone company added a political post on its Instagram and Twitter accounts, that seemed to advocate for illegal immigration. The post was only up for a short time before it was taken down. Early comments were critical of the post. The same post was tweeted out by T-Mobile’s Twitter account, but has also been taken down. It’s surprising that T-Mobile took down the posts since it seems to enjoy crossing the line with ads... continue reading
Cosmo loves to highlight women like The Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead: sex-obsessed, profane, offensive and unabashedly pro-abortion. In an article published July 30 , the women’s magazine lauded Winstead for potentially sacrificing her career in order to be a “USO of reproductive rights, visiting clinics and boosting the morale of the ‘troops.’” After all, her “vocal advocacy for reproductive rights can make it more difficult to get mainstream work.” Yes, you read that correctly. Winstead—who grew up in a conservative, Catholic family—has been an avid abortion advocate ever since she had her own teenage pregnancy terminated. But just last... continue reading
Infamous ambush documentary filmmaker and left-wing political hack Michael Moore has been secretly producing a film for the past six years. Filled with anti-American, anti-military propaganda, “Where to Invade Next” is scheduled to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September. Though most of the details are being kept secret, Moore took to Periscope (a live-streaming Twitter subsidiary) to give fans a flavor of the movie’s content. He explained, “The issue of the United States at infinite war is something that has concerned me for quite some time, and provides the necessary satire for this film.” To Moore, the US’s... continue reading
In response to a series of incriminating under-cover videos from The Center for Medical Progress about the major abortion provider, organizations have been cutting ties -- or denying ties -- to Planned Parenthood. But where nonprofits are concerned, tax records keep the story straight. Between 2010 and 2013, no fewer than 966 individual organizations donated to Planned Parenthood. Of those, 31 gave more than $1 million each during those four years, totaling $374,199,059. The seven highest donors made up $324.8 million of that. These largest Planned Parenthood donors include Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others. A summary of... continue reading
The broadcast news shows covered Cecil the lion more in one day than they spent on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks – and that discrepancy only continues to grow. In two days, ABC, NBC and CBS have spent 30 minutes, 1 second on Cecil, a famed African lion shot by an American dentist. But anchors couldn’t spare nearly as much time for the videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby parts. Since the release of the Center for Medical Progress’ first video two weeks ago, the networks have spent only 11 minutes, 13 seconds on the story... continue reading
