NBC’s Maria Shriver Offers Fawning Profile of “Overnight Sensation” Wendy Davis
Life News ^ | 1-16-14 | Kyle Drennan

Posted on 01/18/2014 1:10:05 PM PST by smokingfrog

In a glowing profile of Texas state senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis that amounted to a campaign commercial on Wednesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Maria Shriver proclaimed:

“Wendy Davis became a familiar name last year when she stood in her pink tennis shoes for eleven hours to defeat a Texas abortion bill. Even though the bill eventually passed, Davis became a star. And her story, her personal story, resonated across this country.” [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Following footage of cheering Davis supports, Shriver lobbed this ridiculous softball to the Texas abortion heroine: “Everybody says Wendy Davis is an overnight sensation. Does it irritate you that people call you an overnight sensation?” Davis replied: “I’m not an overnight sensation. I’m a Texan. And I’m a Texas success story. I am the epitome of hard work and optimism.”

While teasing Shriver’s upcoming interview with Davis as part of Today’s series on women “doing it all,” co-host Savannah Guthrie described Davis as “a mom who rose from nothing to become a rising political star. ”

Beyond vaguely describing how Davis tried to “defeat a Texas abortion bill,” Shriver failed to ask a single question about the would-be governor’s staunch support for abortion in such a pro-life state.

She is older than Governor Palin, she was a nobody a year ago, and her claim to fame is a publicity stunt for abortion, and the national media is fawning over her and trying to make her a national political power.

You can add baby killers to the list of inmates at the asylums that need to be built to incarcerate leftist politicians conspiring to commit criminally insane behavior.

This is no longer civilized political discourse

When an American Marxist engages in passing legislation like amnesty and in state tuition for criminal aliens, nationalizing the medical industry
Overturning state bans on homosexual marriage, seizing property by eminent domain just to increase tax revenue, banning guns etc, the time for talk is over

These people need to be locked up before they can cause further harm

They are actively breaking laws and suppressing constitutional rights

Did Shriver talk about how Wendy sued the Fort Worth Star Telegram for defamation after she lost a race in 1996? Took it to supreme court and was laughed at by intelligent (or even thinking ) people along the way.

All the newspaper did was endorse one of the candidates and pointed out why.

All we have to do is force to witness to what she claims to believe in. We need to challenge her to witness a third trimester abortion. I think she’ll balk at the challenge -all hat, no cowgirl!

NBC Silent on $7.3 Million from Soros for Special Anchor’s Liberal Report

The Center for American Progress partnered with Maria Shriver on lib,NBC promoted report.

Not only did NBC allow their special anchor Maria Shriver to promote her own report on “Nightly News,” they did it without disclosing that it was made in partnership with a group that liberal billionaire George Soros gave $7.3 million to.

In “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink,” which was published on Jan. 11,an outspokenly liberal nun,Sister Joan Chittister,took aim at religious attitudes in America that “devalue” and marginalize women

Every time I see a picture of Maria Shriver, she looks more and more like the guy who drank from the wrong chalice at the end of "Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade".

Next thing there should be a voice-over announcing that "she chose poorly..."
