“There are not two sides.”

As the nation’s media openly joined in the celebrations of the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage, some are saying, as we blogged about, that they will not cover opposition to the issue anymore.  Ben Smith, editor-in-chief of Buzzfeed, said this:

“We firmly believe that for a number of issues, including civil rights, women’s rights, anti-racism, and LGBT equality, there are not two sides.”

Newspaper won’t allow opinions against gay marriage

Where we are already, after the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling:  A Harrisburg, PA, newspaper has announced that since  the gay marriage issue is now “settled,” it will not print op-ed pieces or letters to the editor that oppose gay marriage or say that homosexual acts are immoral or unnatural.  We won’t print racist, sexist, or anti-semitic letters, the editor explained.  “To that we add homophobic ones.” [Read more...]

New York Times exposes Marco Rubio

The New York Times has published a series of articles (linked at the source, after the jump) uncovering scandalous details about Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio:  He has had 4 traffic tickets over 17 years!  He has a boat!  He has oversized windows in his house!  He has a nice car–OK, he just leases it, but still!  How could anyone vote for a man like that?

This kind of stretching shows that liberals are indeed afraid of Rubio.  It also shows the extreme-to-the-point-of-comical political bias of the New York Times.  Satirist Jon Stewart tends to be on the liberal side, but this coverage is so outlandish that it makes the Times a juicy target.  See the clip of what he does to the nation’s so-called paper of record, as well as an article about it, after the jump.

Making dismemberment abortion sound better

Kansas has banned late-term abortions that dismember the child.  Other states are considering passing the same law.  You have got to read the news story in the Washington Post, excerpted after the jump.  You might notice some bias in the story.  But notice to what extent the journalist has to twist her language–to the point of outlandish euphemism–to make this barbaric procedure palatable.

Do kids raised by same-sex couples really fare better?

The media has been trumpeting an Australian study that purported to show that children raised by same-sex parents actually fare better than those raised in traditional families.  That’s quite a claim.  Until you look more closely at the study. [Read more...]

Media finally covering abortionist’s murder trial

In Philadelphia, the abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell is on trial for capital murder, having killed a patient through his ineptitude and babies born alive through his cruelty.  The major media has up-to-now pretty much ignored this trial, but is now giving it some attention, thanks in part to a twitter campaign started by Lutheran journalist Mollie Hemingway.
