By Tim Graham Something shocking happened on NPR on Friday. NPR Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep interviewed a pro-life activist in Texas, Rebecca Parma of Texas Right to Life. It was less shocking that it was hostile throughout. He tossed questions like “Wasn’t your strategy actually to stop abortions in a way that is unconstitutional at the moment?” And: …Continue reading "Can’t Say That? NPR Morning Host Triggered by Utterance of the Word ‘Abortionist’"
By Dave Andrusko To be fair, when it comes to abortion, the Washington Post’s “fact checker” (Glenn Kessler) does stumble across the truth on occasion. But his assessment of the assertion by Rep. Pramila Jayapal that “The Hyde amendment is something that the majority of the country does not support” only warrants a mere “Two …Continue reading "Just “Two Pinocchios” for pro-abortion assertion that the country supports federal funding of abortion?!"
By Dave Andrusko Elsewhere today, we reposted a brilliant column written for Newsbusters by Tim Graham. In a nutshell, once it was safe—after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away—suddenly a couple of media types wondered if NPR’s Nina Totenberg’s five-decade long friendship with the late Justice might have crossed some ethical boundary. …Continue reading "Suddenly a few media types develop a conscience about being buddy-buddy with their pro-abortion sources?"
By Lisa Bourne Big Tech is suppressing social media ads for the life-saving Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) protocol following a report from an activist group fixed on de-platforming entities is deems “hate groups.” Google had pulled ads for APR as of press time and Facebook was conducting a review of the ads on its platform. …Continue reading "Tech giants bow to Big Abortion, quash social media ads for life-saving abortion pill reversal"
By Dave Andrusko The “guest essay” written by Thomas B. Edsall is as perfect an example of bigotry masked as exposing bigotry as you can ever expect. Even by the standards of the abortion-loving New York Times, “Abortion Has Never Been Just About Abortion” is slimy, a broadside at pro-lifers in general, Southerners in particular, …Continue reading "A new low in guttersnipping even by the abysmal standards of the New York Times"
By Laura Echevarria, NRL Director of Communications and Press Secretary With a few exceptions, the mainstream media tends to follow the “rules” laid out for them by pro-abortion groups. NARAL, for example, routinely provides media “guides” to reporters. NARAL outlines how journalists should cover the abortion issue—stipulating everything from what kind of stories reporters should …Continue reading "When the “mainstream media” stumbles and concedes life does begin at conception"
By Sergie Daez Editor’s note. This repost of an article that appeared a year ago is a reminder that no matter how awful a pro-abortion propaganda piece is, the major media will do cartwheels. Abortion is a humorous subject, according to Rachel Lee Goldenberg’s film, Unpregnant, and you can practically hear the guffaws from the Washington Post newsroom. …Continue reading "Unfunny: WashPost Loves ‘Unpregnant,’ the ‘Zany’ Abortion Comedy"
By Dave Andrusko Covid 19 in general, vaccine mandates in particular, are not our issues. What is our issue, however, is when someone—that someone being MSNBC’s blustery Joe Scarborough—shifts from one rant about mandates to announce, out of the blue, that abortion is a “specifically enumerated constitutional right.” I get it that television personalities rift …Continue reading "“Morning Joe,” wrong as usual, this time claiming that abortion is a “specifically enumerated constitutional right”"
By Nancy Flanders A recent Business Insider piece features misleading information sourced only from abortionists and abortion-friendly organizations. In the article, writer Bethany Dawson makes the shockingly misleading claim that a preborn child’s heartbeat isn’t present at six weeks and that “the sound of the thumping is from the machine.” This sort of obfuscation and attempted dismissal of …Continue reading "MEDIA BIAS: Business Insider claims sound of preborn heartbeat is just ‘from the machine’"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. When we chose what to repost from what appeared a year ago in NRL News Today, the number one criteria is that the subject matter remains 100% relevant. Can journalists’ “curating” (that is, slicing and dicing to get a preordained result) possibly be current? This particular example is very much …Continue reading "A Communications Prof’s creative nonsense for taking down the President he hates"
By Laura Echevarria, NRL Director of Communications and Press Secretary According to the U.S. News Desert, a joint project of the University of North Carolina’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media and the Knight Foundation, over 70 daily newspapers have been lost since 2004 and over 2,000 weekly or non-daily newspapers have been lost. In …Continue reading "What is the impact of the “Fake News” Machine on Voters?"
By Dave Andrusko As all pro-lifers know, whenever there is a case headed to the Supreme Case (as is with the Mississippi Gestational Age Act) or a big pro-life victory (Texas’s SB 8 went into effect at midnight), the “media” will crank out a poll telling us how much in the minority we are. It’s …Continue reading "Another absurdly misleading abortion poll, this time from NBC News"
