By Wesley J. Smith I’ve seen it again and again in my more than twenty years of opposing assisted suicide: the media promote suicide in the guise of reporting the news. Indeed, these days, it is almost a universal rule. Here’s the biased–both by what is reported and what isn’t–usual pattern: 1. Make sure the …Continue reading "How media helps push us off suicide cliff"
By Dave Andrusko Depending on who’s counting (or has the time to do an exhaustive search), between 200 and 300 newspapers sharpened their already razor-sharp knives today to slice and dice President Trump. As a near First Amendment absolutist, my response (for what it’s worth) is bully for them. From the New York Times to …Continue reading "Lots to say about today’s avalanche of anti-Trump newspaper editorials"
By Dave Andrusko This is the last post of the day and, as per custom, is (hopefully) brief. Yesterday, under the headline “Boston Globe calls for August 16 uniform editorial attack on President Trump,” I wrote about the forthcoming coordinated media assault on President Trump. From my vantage point, the battle was less between the …Continue reading "Have 100+ newspapers really thought through how it looks to collectively bash President Trump?"
By Katie Yoder This year, two countries held significant votes on elective abortion. But the networks only covered the aftermath of one of them – the country that voted for abortion. On Aug. 9, Argentina’s Senate voted against a bill that would have permitted elective abortions up to 14 weeks. Nearly three months earlier, on …Continue reading "Abortion Vote Coverage: Networks Praised Ireland, Ignored Argentina"
By Dave Andrusko The instant response—and the perfect response—came from Karen Townsend of Hot Air: “In other words, just a normal day in Trump’s America. ” She is referring to The Boston Globe which had “named itself America’s protector of the free press and is coordinating a day designated for newspapers across the country to …Continue reading "Boston Globe calls for August 16 uniform editorial attack on President Trump"
By Dave Andrusko What a coincidence. I was just about to write a post in which I had begun by thanking people for their kind responses to “The deceitful three-pronged pro-abortion attack on Judge Brett Kavanaugh” that I wrote yesterday when I ran across a story that reinforced my argument many times over. You may recall …Continue reading "Media loathing for President Trump leads them astray just as it did in 2016"
By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a Newsbusters post and is reposted with permission. Supreme Court retirements under Donald Trump cause an extra measure of heartburn to Democrats. They nominated Hillary Clinton and her seven-mile train of scandalous baggage for president, and that’s jake [okay]. They elected Bill Clinton …Continue reading "The Media vs. Brett Kavanaugh"
By Dave Andrusko About 90 seconds after President Trump announced his nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next justice of the Supreme Court, I switched to CNN just to see what the usual (as in blatantly hostile) suspects would say. This is one of those situations where if you repeat what Chris Cuomo …Continue reading "Expect “overhyped, inconclusive, misleading, half-true, or flat-out false” statements about Judge Kavanaugh"
By Dave Andrusko Before deconstructing a pro-abortion Talking Points Memo disguised as an Associated Press story, just a quick thought about pro-life President Donald Trump’s continuing improvement in public opinion polls. If you go to Real Clear Politics’ average of major polls taken since May 21, you see two results which are constants over time …Continue reading "AP story on Trump no different than pro-abortion Talking Points Memo"
By Dave Andrusko We’ve reposted a great Newsbusters story written by P.J. Gladnick. He pokes gentle fun at Chris Cillizza, formerly of the Washington Post, now of CNN, whose loathing for President Trump is so all-consuming that facts mean nothing to him. (His displeasure with Republicans in general runs a close second.) Gladnick was talking …Continue reading "Why you should never believe the “legacy media” when they talk about pro-life office holders or election prospects"
By Dave Andrusko We don’t need to rehash at length what we’ve documented time and time again. The Irish media is pro-abortion from its collective head to the bottom of its soles. It is not a debatable proposition. In the category “it would be funny if it weren’t so malevolent” is the constant drumbeat that …Continue reading "The pro-abortion, truth-shaving Irish media"
By Tim Graham Executives at America’s top liberal newspapers firmly expressed the sentiment that they report on Donald Trump without bias or partisanship. This should launch a national wave of spit takes. To underline the chumminess between The New York Times and The Washington Post in this Trump era, the Times published a story on …Continue reading "Washington Post, New York Times Compete for Most Ludicrous Claim of Nonpartisanship"
