By Calvin Freiburger December 9, 2018 – In a serious, formal debate setting, there’s generally a bare minimum threshold of factual proficiency. Even on abortion, the pro-aborts willing to actually face pro-life apologists on a stage may make various horrifying philosophical arguments, but they generally won’t be the ones to simply pretend a preborn child …Continue reading "WaPo insults readers’ intelligence with illiterate pro-abortion screed about sperm funerals"
By Tim Graham The nation’s leading newspapers have asserted their role as the most important “independent fact-checkers” in politics. So why do they fail to fact-check their own interviewees? On Twitter, Jeryl Bier noted The New York Times had to add an embarrassing correction to a two-month old story on Friday. Reporter Trip Gabriel did …Continue reading "New York Times Flunks Fact Checking 101: Their Star ‘Trump Voter’ who supposedly had changed his mind never voted in 2016"
By Tim Graham Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan has offered a perfect example of how the pompous Post sees itself. It exists to provide enlightenment to the masses, and the masses are supposed to respond and give liberals victory at the polls, both at election time and when the media pollsters work the phones. …Continue reading "WashPost Media Columnist: Journalists MUST ‘Reach the Undecided’ to Impeach Trump"
By Dave Andrusko National Review Online’s Alexandra DeSanctis wrote an interesting post today [“2020 Democrats Expose Extreme Abortion Policies in New Survey”], covering in much greater detail something we’d addressed earlier: an abortion survey the New York Times took of the Democrats running for President. Her fine story prompted me to take a second look. …Continue reading "NYTimes survey shows Democrats toe the Planned Parenthood line with enthusiasm"
By Corinne Weaver Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a post at Newsbusters. Google makes many claims about its search engine. The results are not curated, they are not manipulated, and there is no blacklist of sites, says the company. However, none of these statements are true, according to an extensive investigation from The Wall …Continue reading "Investigation Finds Google ‘Blacklists’ Sites from Results"
By Dave Andrusko Many, if not most, NRL News Today readers know of Snopes.com. It’s one of those self-important “fact-checking sites” which just happen to unwaveringly come to the politically correct conclusion which includes virtually always giving a thumbs-up to pro-abortion charges and a thumbs-down to pro-life contentions. The Babylon Bee, by contrast, is lesser …Continue reading "Classic faceoff: Snopes meets The Babylon Bee"
By Katie Yoder Many in the media are expressing excitement over the upcoming Democratic debate that will be moderated solely by women. That’s because, they predict, an all-female panel means a focus on “women’s issues,” and, more specifically, abortion. On October 23, news reports revealed that the next presidential candidate debate will be moderated by …Continue reading "Media Predict Next Female-Moderated Debate’s Focus: Abortion"
By Dave Andrusko Kudos to the indispensable Katie Yoder whose post today alerted me to the composition of the moderators for the November 20 Democrat presidential debate: they are all women, the “second time a major televised political debate has been led by moderators who are all women,” as Huffington Post’s Lydia O’Connor reported. Ms. …Continue reading "What difference on the abortion issue will it make to have four female moderators for next Democratic debate?"
By Dave Andrusko Just for fun and enlightenment, let’s add a few recent stories together and see what our reading of the tea leaves might suggest. First, it is impossible to exaggerate how sharp the media’s knives have become. They are obsessed (no lesser word will do) to, at a minimum, defeat President Trump in …Continue reading "Media desperation fuels attacks on President Trump, longing for a new Democrat to enter the race"
By Dave Andrusko A sidebar/quick addition to the post written earlier about tonight’s Democratic presidential debate. I didn’t bother to make this particular point because it’s so redundant—that is, even when reporters were talking about tonight’s 4th debate and found something problematic in a Democrat’s current posture, they would turn that into a criticism of …Continue reading "Enough to give Fake News a bad name"
By Dave Andrusko I’m sure it’s happened before, but this is the first time I can remember seeing Linda Greenhouse, the reporter for the New York Times who covered the Supreme Court from 1978-2008, describe herself as “an abortion-rights advocate.” In her new role as a “Contributing Opinion Writer,” I guess Greenhouse believes there is …Continue reading "Pro-abortion Linda Greenhouse’s latest attempt to browbeat newest Supreme Court Justices"
By Nicholas Fondacaro As an apparent follow up to their Wednesday morning hype for the new “ginormous” “mega” Planned Parenthood clinic in Illinois, the CBS Evening News revisited hours later the Planned Parenthood clinic in Missouri and followed a woman seeking to have an abortion. The report itself vilified pro-lifers and it was obvious that …Continue reading "CBS Sets Out to Vilify Pro-Lifers, Exploit Woman Seeking Abortion"
