Media's selective coverage pushes abortion

The leftist media is hypocritically ramping up coverage of fake news while avoiding certain clarifications for the purpose of pushing abortion.

The pro-death media has been clearly working with pro-abortion politicians on the Senate Judiciary Committee to block the confirmation of pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court as far back as 1987. That was the year Judge Robert Bork got savaged by Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) for being too pro-life. Bork's failed confirmation was a turning point in the judicial confirmation process whereby liberal senators and big media could destroy a judge's reputation seemingly at will.

This process continued with wall-to-wall media coverage of Anita Hill's testimony in 1991 against then-Judge Clarence Thomas. Hill's unsubstantiated assertions that Thomas had made inappropriate comments to her at work did not derail his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

These cases are not as egregious, however, as the media's refusal to cover the glaring holes in Christine Blasey Ford's testimony against then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh. These were highlighted by President Donald Trump at an October rally in Mississippi.

After non-stop coverage of Ford's accusations against Kavanaugh, liberal media all but ignored the fact that a panel of judges in December dismissed all 83 ethics complaints against Kavanaugh. One of those accusations was from Judy Munro-Leighton, who alleged that Kavanaugh had raped her in the back seat of a car. This false accusation, like many others, got splashed all over the news.

When Munro-Leighton recanted her story in November, however, there was nothing but crickets from left-leaning media. She admitted that the accusation "was a tactic" that she employed to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court. The one thing Bork, Thomas and Kavanaugh all had in common was their personal opposition to abortion.
