AP’s biased descriptions allow pro-abortion assumptions and psychology to worm their way into countless publications

By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation When I began working as a secular journalist, the Associated Press stylebook became my Bible.  Although the AP stylebook has many competitors, it remains enormously influential. The AP stylebook prescribes the language that is approved for usage for news stories. I quickly learned that, in my …

MSNBC Regular Mystal: Pro-Lifers Treat Women ‘Like Incubators With Mouthparts’

By Mark Finkelstein On a recent Tiffany Cross’s MSNBC show, in a segment on abortion and Mississippi’s effort to overturn Roe v. Wade, MSNBC regular Elie Mystal twice portrayed pro-life people as treating women like “incubators with mouthparts.” Pro-life people would reject Mystal’s foul metaphor.

Abortion advocate calls for a “radical reconception” so that parents of children can see that “It can be a serious act of love to have an abortion”

By Dave Andrusko It’s a common pro-abortion lament/call to action, so let’s fill in the blank. In order to “normalize” abortion, we (meaning  both everyday women and men but especially the entertainment media) must “Shout Your Abortion,” or announce “No Mother’s Day For Me Just Yet. Thank you!” or “See More Parents Having Abortions in …

Kate Smith, “Planned Parenthood’s ambassador to CBS News,” quits

News Pages, Editorial Pages — Who Can Tell the Difference Any More?

By Tim Graham  Editor’s note. The situation this repost of a story we ran a year ago courtesy of Newsbusters describes has grown even worse. To use a current term, reporters have weaponized their stories, barely even pretending to be non-partisan or to hint there is another side. Pro-lifers, of course, are a particularly disfavored …

Pro-abortion NYTimes opinion writer calls on corporations to blackmail states that pass protective abortion laws

By Dave Andrusko Before we dissect the latest pro-abortion harangue by the New York Times’ Linda Greenhouse [“The Sound of Silence on Abortion”], it’s instructive to read what follows her plea/threat for corporate pro-abortion activism– or else.  It reads, “The Times is committed to publishing a diversity of letters to the editor.” Of course, any “diverse” letters against …

NewsBusters Explainer Video: How Fact Checkers Abuse Their Role To Boost Democrat Causes

By Bill D’Agostino  Fact checkers are just as susceptible to bias and narrative-pushing as any other class of journalist. Despite this, major media organizations treat them as a source of reliably unbiased information — as do social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, who have granted them the power to flag and remove anything they …

CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s latest incoherence pro-abortion diatribe

By Dave Andrusko We’ve written (or reposted) a number of items on CNN’s insufferably smug, colossally self-important Chris Cuomo which brings to mind the old saw about breaking a butterfly on a wheel.  Isn’t it overkill times ten to parse the statements of a pro-abortion ideologue who is to vanity what Planned Parenthood is to …
