The Media and Abortion: Worse than You Think

So, I’m eavesdropping on the staff of a largish mainstream-media outlet next door (the press working spaces at the DNC are separated by curtains) and got a good earful of liberal asininity. 

The pro-lifers are out in force in Charlotte, displaying very graphic images of small human beings cut up in the name of sexual convenience. I find the images difficult to look at, and I am not the only one. 

So the geniuses in the tent next door were declaring that these images are somehow fake or exaggerated (what do you think a baby a few months away from birth looks like chopped up), and were complaining that the pro-lifer protesters should not be allowed to bring their children along. Specifically, one lady said, “That’s child abuse!” 

It takes a special kind of moral illiteracy to look at that poster of a small person butchered and then to conclude that bringing your kids along to protest that state-sanctioned violence is the child abuse.

The Year of Resentment

Political journalists, commentators, pundits, and flacks often engage in their work in a year like this with a world-weary, if not depressed, attitude. And given the oddly low metabolism of our presidential campaign, who could blame them? Donald Trump isn’t able to do the rallies that energized him and his ... Read More
