    **SNIP** Biden “has not at this point changed his position on the Hyde Amendment,” his campaign told HuffPost, and contended that “the Hyde Amendment does not prevent organizations in the U.S. that provide lifesaving health care services for women from receiving the federal funding they need.” Because the provision bans Medicaid, Medicare and other federal health insurance programs from covering the vast majority of abortions, low-income women and women of color are disproportionately affected by it. Democrats and other 2020 candidates quickly slammed Biden for standing by such a policy. “It’s been the law for a while, and it’s been...

    February 14, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – With abortion advocates currently on the defensive over multiple state proposals shining a national spotlight on late-term abortions, the left-wing HuffPost has taken the dramatic step of publishing an editorial by a mother wishing she had aborted her baby to avoid having to watch the child die from a severe abnormality. Dina Zirlott, a 31-year-old Alabama mother of three girls, opens the article by revealing she was raped at age 17 and had a resulting daughter a year later, who died a year after that. After discussing her rape and the ensuing mental trauma, she...

    Feminist Calls for Sex Strike in Texas By Lauren Enk Created 07/01/2013 - 3:50pm By Lauren Enk | July 01, 2013 | 15:50 A A Misanthropic feminists are at it again. HuffPo’s Vivian Norris just suggested a sex strike in Texas to pressure male voters into giving in to the feminist agenda (aka abortion on demand – er, “women’s healthcare.”) Deeply disgruntled that Texas might pass a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, Norris urged Texas women to force men to vote for pro-choice agendas in the future by refusing to have intercourse with them this summer. “Don't give in...

    The president went on yet another retweet rampage as he re-shared 60 posts in around 45 minutes that praised him, defended him or echoed his main talking points. Themes included immigration, his national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border, special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report, the economy, his trade war with China and his 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton. Posts from ultra-conservative website Breitbart News, Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Huckabee, the former Republican governor of Arkansas, all figured in the avalanche of retweets. Trump also...

    Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is nearing his retirement from the NBA, but he just made an all-star move as a dad. The guard voiced solidarity with his 11-year-old son Zion, who attended the Miami Beach Pride parade on Sunday. “We support each other with Pride!” Wade wrote in an Instagram story, accompanied by a photo of the lad and his stepmom, actress Gabrielle Union. Wade noted in another image that Zion, posing with family and friends, had his own cheering section. “Wish I was there to see you smile kid!” he wrote with a rainbow flag emoji.

    A report in Huffington Post recently revealed the case of Wikipedia editor Ed Sussman, who was paid by media clients such as NBC and Axios to help diminish critical material. Paid editors operating in a similar manner to Sussman have worked on behalf of CNN contributor Hilary Rosen and the CEOs of Reddit and Intel, among other clients. Other conduct by Sussman not covered by the Huffington Post shows him authoring fluff pieces for NBC executives and getting his proposed changes approved by another paid Wikipedia editor.

    Establishment media journalists and pundits uncritically accepted and promoted Jussie Smollett’s elaborate “hate crime” story, just one week after the mainstream media fostered the false narrative surrounding the Covington Catholic students, resulting in a laundry list of impending defamation lawsuits. Here’s 12 establishment media commentators and journalists who fueled the Jussie Smollett flames with impassioned and uncritical reactions to the Empire actor’s imaginative account of his supposed run-in with Trump supporters in “MAGA country” Chicago. 1. Eugene Scott – Washington Post‘s The Fix reporter 2. Don Lemon – CNN journalist 3. Yamiche Alcindor – PBS NewsHour White House correspondent 4....

    President Donald Trump is known for boasting about having “the best words,” but Kellyanne Conway’s husband, attorney George Conway, is having none of it. On Friday, George Conway, who has been critical of the Trump administration even though his wife is a senior White House adviser, upped the ante by ripping the president’s oratorical skills. Conway’s post on Twitter linked to a Washington Post column by Henry Olsen that lambasted what he called Trump’s ”rambling and disjointed explanation” for why he is declaring a national emergency to fund a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. For Conway, the key quote...

    “Oh, God, another Asian girl/white boy couple,” I groan, dropping my fiancé’s hand. He hates it when I do this. So do I, really. I know it’s unkind and self-loathing, but every time I see another couple of our racial makeup, a little part of me sinks. We live in San Francisco, so this dip is as common as the hills. In these moments, I wish we were anything else ― that he were my gay best friend or we were startup co-founders, that he were Asian and I were white, that we were exquisitely ambiguous races, or that I...

    I spent the first half of 2015 pregnant and then I had a “late-term abortion.” My husband and I decided early that year to try to start a family. I succeeded almost immediately in getting pregnant. There was obviously a healthy mix of excitement and terror. While it happened a little quicker than we anticipated, we wanted our baby.
  • Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro Rails Against Green New Deal In Wild ‘Cows Farting’ Rant

    Judge Jeanine Pirro used her Saturday night Fox News show to launch a mockery-loaded rant against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y) Green New Deal, fixating primarily on cow farts. Reviewing the economic and environmental plan in her opening monologue, Pirro noted that it aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030. The reason for the use of the term “net” rather than just “zero,” she insisted, was that the plan’s advocated are “not sure they’ll be able to get rid of bovine flatulence, a.k.a. cows farting.” The talking point was accompanied by a dramatic graphic involving Earth being busted into pieces...

    Actress and activist Ellen Page is calling out fellow celebrity Chris Pratt for attending an “infamously” anti-LGBTQ church Page pointed out that Pratt, who spoke about his church on the “Late Show” Thursday night, didn’t mention that it doesn’t appear to be affirming of queer relationships. Pratt and a number of other Christian celebrities ― Justin and Hailey Bieber, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez ― have become closely associated with hip, youth-oriented evangelical churches like Hillsong, a megachurch with locations around the world, and Zoe Church, a newer Los Angeles-based church that was modeled after Hillsong.
  • As Many As 2,100 People Have Lost Media Jobs in the Past Two Weeks

    The start of 2019 has been brutal to the media industry, with as many as 2,100 writers, editors, and other workers losing their jobs in the past two weeks. On February 1, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Vice Media would be laying off 10 percent of its staff, or approximately 250 workers, as part of a reorganization effort; just hours later, the Miami New Times reported that McClatchy, which operates newspapers across the country, had offered voluntary buyouts to 450 workers. These reports come just one week after Verizon (which owns HuffPost, Yahoo, and AOL) laid off 7 percent of...

    Matt House, who served as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's communications director, was asked to leave the position last year after "inappropriate encounters" made staff members uncomfortable. "Upon learning that he had inappropriate encounters within the office and that it was making some staff uncomfortable, he was asked to leave," a Schumer spokesperson confirmed to CBS News on Friday. House's nearly six-year tenure working as a top aide for the New York senator had been praised as an effective one, though many were surprised in November when he left Schumer's staff without jumping to a new high-profile job. His reason...

    After news came out about mass layoffs at HuffPost, Buzzfeed and Gannett -- in the midst of the media's relentless smear-job against the Covington Catholic students -- right-wing Twitter had a field day. Tons of leftist journalists announced they were laid off on Twitter and the top meme was telling them to "learn to code" -- which is the same advice the media gave middle Americans whose jobs are being taken in traditional industries. Talia Levin, who was hired by Media Matters last year after being fired by the New Yorker for smearing an ICE agent as a Nazi because...

    It's time now to play a new political game: Who's the Liar? In one corner we have the Huffington Post Washington bureau chief, Ryan Grim, who must be feeling very grim today because his "scoop" about the Bain Capital source of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's claim about Mitt Romney not paying taxes for 10 years has blown up on him. Grim Grim quoted Reid's spokesman, Jose Parra, as stating that Reid's Bain Capital source is a Republican. Unfortunately for grim Grim this assertion was countered by Parra's parry that he said no such thing. Since grim Grim placed Parra's...

    Instead, Democrats are sticking to their original plan, and channeled Exxon Mobil in an announcement refusing to bar members who take fossil fuel money. Democratic leaders on Thursday tapped Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) to head a revived U.S. House panel on climate change, all but ending a dramatic monthlong effort to establish a select committee on a Green New Deal. Castor’s appointment came as a surprise to proponents of a Green New Deal. Despite weeks of protests demanding House Democrats focus efforts next year on drafting a Green New Deal, the sort of sweeping economic policy that scientists say matches...

    If you had told me as recently as a month ago that I'd ever be backing up Kevin Hart, I would've thought you were crazy. I've endured several of his movies because of social obligations, and the only one I really liked was Jumanji, mostly because it was an ensemble comedy and contained a smaller percentage of Kevin Hart than usual. He's one of the reasons I'm eternally grateful for the Mute button. I don't begrudge the man his success, but so far I've been content with aiding his career by staying out of the way. Not everybody is so...

    A couple of weeks ago, the Washington Post published a report detailing how Bain Capital, under Mitt Romney’s leadership, invested in companies that specialize in outsourcing American jobs, creating a surge of media and public interest in his relationship to the private equity firm. Since then, the Romney campaign has offered one lame comeback after another — from splitting hairs over the terms “outsourcing” and “offshoring” and trying to drum up VP speculation, to flat out “whining” as Karl Rove put it — in an attempt to distract voters from the real issue: Mitt Romney has personally made, and continues...
