On today’s session of The View , supposed “conservative voice” Nicole Wallace again showed her true liberal colors. In a discussion surrounding Cecil the Lion, co-host Raven-Symoné declared that “people for hashtag #BlackLivesMatter are outlash – are backlashing too, because they said ‘it’s a lion, but when we tried to start a movement, it didn’t get as much hoopla.’ And I don’t believe that’s true.” Wallace then responded that “it goes both ways. Conservatives are making the same point about Planned Parenthood, but I think that’s a disgrace to Cecil the Lion.” So lamenting the media’s light coverage of the... continue reading
The latest video exposing the trafficking of aborted babies by Planned Parenthood showed workers casually laughing over and probing at pieces of a “baby” and “another boy.” The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a fourth investigative video July 30 showing Planned Parenthood executive, Dr. Savita Ginde, bartering over baby part pricing while admitting that the chances of providing intact organs are better if a woman “delivers before we get to see them.” The video showed Planned Parenthood workers laughing over “five-star” baby parts while trying not to “smush” them. Ginde is the Vice President and Medical Director of the... continue reading
Atheist, Democrat, professor and social critic—that’s Camille Paglia. But in a recent interview with Salon, she had some choice words for the liberal media . In a discussion about Jon Stewart and his influence on the media, Paglia declared, “At what point will liberals wake up to realize the stranglehold that they had on the media for so long?” “Liberals think of themselves as very open-minded, but that’s simply not true!” she said. “Liberalism has sadly become a knee-jerk ideology, with people barricaded in their comfortable little cells. They think that their views are the only rational ones, and everyone... continue reading
(Editor’s Note: Sarah Stites contributed to this report) America’s anchors have spoken: the shooting of one lion vastly outweighs the trafficking of baby parts by a taxpayer-funded abortion giant. In other words, the broadcast news shows spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks . The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts -- censored it at Planned Parenthood’s urging . But the news shows... continue reading
Piers Morgan, a British journalist who has excoriated the “appalling gun culture that now pervades every aspect of American life,” wouldn’t mind owning a bow and arrow … so he can start “Big Human Hunting.” In a July 28 piece for the Daily Mail , Morgan attacked dentist and hunter Dr. Walter Palmer for killing Cecil, a renowned Zimbabwean lion being tracked for an Oxford study. Although Palmer claimed that he was not aware of Cecil’s special status, Morgan wrote that the lion’s “popularity cut no ice with Dr. Palmer.” He then went on to describe Palmer as “a smirking,... continue reading
Fear often trumps facts in media coverage. The past several years of worries about dying colonies of bees was certainly no exception, but The Washington Post recently supplied some much-needed sting to the honeybee situation. News media scare stories about bee deaths and the label that came to describe the occurrence -- Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) -- have dominated the news. Magazines, broadcast networks and left-wing websites blamed bee deaths on a host of factors, including cell phones, pesticides, mites and fungi. Oh, and global warming , of course. Hype was rampant. Time magazine warned of “ Beepocalypse ” in... continue reading
On July 27, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) voted to change their policy regarding gay leaders. Slate’s Mike DeSocio called the change “a huge step forward.” In an effort to satisfy both conservatives and progressives with a stake in the BSA, the organization will no longer ban gay leaders at the national level, but will allow local troops to choose their own leaders. In this way, churches that sponsor troops can have a say in the moral integrity of the leaders selected. Earlier this year, BSA president and former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates had declared that the... continue reading
It can only be described as both ludicrous and insensitive. Just days after a Muslim terrorist shot up two military recruitment centers , killing five servicemen in Chattanooga, TN, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson told the media and high-ranking government officials to not mention the word “Islam” when talking about ISIS or terrorism. Johnson made these comments at a national security conference July 23. Ryan Lizza, Washington correspondent for The New Yorker , moderated the event centering on the U.S.’s strategy for Al-Qaeda and ISIS. Lizza asked Johnson, “Why do you, and the Obama Administration, describe this as violent extremism and... continue reading
A horrifying new video shows exactly what Planned Parenthood does with the parts from aborted babies. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a third investigative video July 28 showing a former “procurement technician,” Holly O’Donnell, explain how Planned Parenthood would “get a certain percentage” of compensation from her former employer, StemExpress, for harvesting aborted baby parts. From her very first day at a Planned Parenthood clinic, a trainer instructed O’Donnell to pick apart an aborted baby and identify parts, including “a leg” with tweezers. The video also caught another Planned Parenthood executive saying she wanted payment per baby specimen... continue reading
Climate alarmist James Hansen recently dropped a “bombshell” study about rising seas, at least according to the media hyping his claims. The former NASA lead climate scientist claimed sea levels could rise 10 feet in 50 years, which is far more than even the alarmist forecasts of the United Nations. Hansen and 16 co-authors published the study on July 23 in the open-source journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics . It has not been peer-reviewed. CBS, NBCNews.com, MSNBC and Slate all hyped Hansen’s prediction and credentials, while downplaying or ignoring scientists who disagreed with Hansen’s findings. NBCNews.com labeled him and his... continue reading
