For the second time in a week, Fox News Channel (FNC) host Bill O’Reilly turned to statistics from the “very accurate” Media Research Center to form the basis of a segment of The O’Reilly Factor concerning the major broadcast network coverage of the Planned Parenthood scandal with Thursday’s mention comparing it with the droves of coverage given to the shooting death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe.

Ohio's newspapers have reported that two state legislators, one Democrat and one Republican, are cosponsoring a bill to defund Planned Parenthood in the Buckeye State. But they have mostly failed to note the key points made by Cleveland Democrat Bill Patmon in his inspiring, passionate speech at an Ohio Right to Life rally announcing his cosponsorship.

You see, Mr. Patmon is black, and he has had it up to here with the hypocrisy of the "Black Lives Matter" movement, especially in their failure to denounce the disproportionate slaughter in the U.S. of black babies through abortion.

After almost nine day of silence on the Planned Parenthood baby parts video scandal, major broadcast networks CBS and NBC ended their coverage blackout with full stories following the release of a fourth horrifying video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) while fellow network ABC and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision ignored it. However, the stories on the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News were anything but impressive as the duo largely played defense for the abortion providers in bemoaning the defunding “attack in Congress” on Planned Parenthood with CMP having “inflam[ed] a controversy over how Planned Parenthood donates fetal tissue for medical research.”

The Washington Post’s ongoing series of articles aggressively promoting the acceptance of the science-deniers who practice transgenderism continued with a sprawling 3,133-word article on the front of Thursday’s Style section. The headline was “LIFE AS SARA: What it’s like to be a transgender woman when you’re not Caitlyn Jenner.” In other words, when you’re black and almost homeless. 

The Post had a massive color photo of “Sara” Simone that took up the entire half of the paper above the fold. The story (and five additional photos, two of them almost a half-page each) took up all of pages C-6 and C-7. There is no space in this article for a critic, as usual.

Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal company is close to a deal in which the “media giant” will invest a staggering $250 million to increase its holdings in several liberal websites -- including BuzzFeed and Vox Media -- as the corporation searches for ways to reach younger audiences, according to an article written by Shalini Ramachandran and Lukas Alpert for the Wall Street Journal's website on Thursday.

The reporters call BuzzFeed “a hot new media property that has built a huge audience of young users over the past several years.” The deal would increase the website's value to about $1.5 billion.

Wolf Blitzer grilled Rand Paul on Thursday, demanding to know why the Republican presidential candidate would dare advocate the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Quoting liberal talking points, he complained, "Why do you want to defund Planned Parenthood? Because, as you know, according to Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, the president of the organization, they serve 2.5 million people, a lot of poor people, a lot of poor women out there." Blitzer chided, "Tell us why you would defund, if you had your way, the entire organization." Paul shot back: "I know pro- choice people who are upset about [the selling of baby organs]. Even Hillary Clinton, who is not sure when life begins, she's even disturbed by this. You have to realize, this is really disturbing a lot of people from all spectrums of life."

CNN's Alisyn Camerota regurgitated common liberal talking points in defense of federal funding for Planned Parenthood on Thursday's New Day as she interviewed Senator Joni Ernst. Camerota noted that Senator Ernst "sponsored a bill to defund them," and spotlighted that "the argument against that is that Planned Parenthood provides a whole host of services beyond abortion services. They provide birth control; they provide cancer screenings that...tens of thousands of women and men rely upon."
