On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, co-anchor Alisyn Camerota repeatedly fretted over the possibility that cutting off federal funding of Planned Parenthood would make it difficult for women to get abortions. In one segment, she asserted that, in doing so, "obviously it does take away a woman's right to choose."

In a later segment, she suggested that defunding Planned Parenthood would lead women to have abortions "in a more desperate way," and, speaking to GOP Rep. Diane Black, demanded: "Is that what you want for American women?" As he plugged the first segment on the issue at 6:16 a.m., co-anchor Chris Cuomo tagged Planned Parenthood's activities as "lawful," as if this characterization were not in dispute: Cuomo:

How many times have we heard that Donald Trump has peaked since he declared his candidacy for president in June? A half dozen times? More? And each time Peak Trump was announced by pundits, it was inevitably followed by yet another surge in the polls. This is probably why in recent weeks, media prognosticators seem to have shied from declaring Peak Trump since it is always followed by you-know-what. However enter Ezra Klein of Vox. Throwing caution to the winds, Klein went where few now dare to go by predicting that we have indeed finally reached Peak Trump. Klein consulted charts and graphs before tuning up his horn to play taps on Trump's candidacy. Of course, the inevitable quickly happened to leave Klein's face covered with egg. But first let us join Klein's bold assertion of Peak Trump posted at 8:20 this morning:

Just when you think the liberal media is about to give a fair nod to a conservative, they follow it up with any “negative” ammunition they can find. But let’s face it, complimenting a conservative is a very small space on their wheel of tolerance

According to the Washington Post, Fiorina has been dubbed the champion of anti-abortion movement. Unfortunately, the well-deserved praise is offered with a big rock of salt. Despite the fitting title, the left still refuse to give up their “gold mine” with the statements Fiorina made at the last CNN Presidential Debates.

On Wednesday's New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo acted more like a pro-Planned Parenthood prosecutor than a journalist in his ten-minute-plus interview of David Daleiden. Cuomo repeatedly badgered Daleiden – who managed the undercover project that uncovered the abortion giant's sale of aborted babies' organs and tissues – over the summary videos of the footage his organization shot. He also touted how "Planned Parenthood – and other people who see [them] – says no; you doctored them. You're doctoring it to make it seem like what you want it to be."

Tuesday afternoon, Alan Fram laughably headlined his coverage of Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards' appearance before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at the Associated Press as follows: "FACING CONGRESS, PLANNED PARENTHOOD CHIEF REBUTS VIDEOS."

She did no such thing. Most notably, Fram quoted Richards making the following statement to the committee: "The outrageous accusations leveled against Planned Parenthood, based on heavily doctored videos, are offensive and categorically untrue." Not merely "heavily edited," but "doctored," which according to the dictionary in this context means "to tamper with; falsify." Unfortunately for Richards and her group's supporters, in a report released yesterday, forensic experts have concluded that the Center for Medical Progress videos she criticized are "authentic" (bolds are mine throughout this post):

The difference between these news networks mentioning "heavily edited" videos and the Center for Medical Progress is that CMP is far more honest and transparent in disclosing the full footage and posting it online.  These "news" networks have a responsibility to do the same.

Today, I am calling on CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS to make public all the footage they collect for all of the news segments they produce, just as the Center for Medical Progress has done. Until they do, they have no right to question CMP's professionalism.

What started as a rumor was confirmed by the Vatican mid-morning Wednesday: Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who went to jail for refusing to give same-sex marriage licenses, met with Pope Francis secretly last Thursday.

If there was a contest for who would try hardest among the networks to ignore the House hearing with Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards, the winner was the PBS NewsHour. They gave it 66 seconds, with 18 seconds of a Richards soundbite and 13 seconds of GOP Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio.

What was especially weird about it was how there was really no serious attempt to explain the subject of the hearing beyond the incredibly vague “how fetal tissue is used for research.” That’s  not even “how fetal tissue is acquired from abortion providers for research.” Not even Jordan’s soundbite specifies what’s on the Center for Medical Progress videos:

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Wednesday knocked down Whoopi Goldberg’s pro-abortion talking points. Goldberg grilled, “How will you say to your constituents who may be gay or may find themselves in a position with something like Planned Parenthood, what will you replace it with if you take it away?” Santorum: “Planned Parenthood, for example, does not provide mammograms. Now, I know people say they do, but they don’t.” Goldberg broke in, “Yeah, they do.” In fact, they don’t.

Good Morning America’s Tom Llamas, a vocal critic of Donald Trump, on Wednesday touted Bill Clinton’s defense of his wife against the candidate. Llamas narrated, “He's back. Former President Bill Clinton making the rounds and the case why his wife should be president, defending Hillary from one of her harshest critics.”

The broadcast networks showed no interest in congressional hearings of Planned Parenthood – that is, until Cecile Richards stepped in.

Tuesday morning, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards testified before the House Oversight Committee in regards to the videos exposing the abortion giant’s harvesting of aborted baby parts. During their Wednesday morning news shows, ABC, NBC and CBS painted Richards as the victim in their reports.

On Tuesday night, Daily Show host Trevor Noah surprisingly took time out of his second broadcast to mock Hillary Clinton’s recent softball interview with liberal actress Lena Dunham. The Comedy Central comedian introduced the segment by joking that “Hillary knows how to win the nation. First you have to win the butt-smotherers. And here's the thing, Lena Dunham loves Hillary, too.”

Candidate Donald Trump recently released his tax plan and the media were all over it. However, CBS seemed to suffer a case of amnesia between two broadcasts on its network.

During the morning of Sept. 28, CBS found support for the plan, but by evening (when far more people were watching), CBS seemed to have forgotten all about it.

New York Times Supreme Court correspondent Adam Liptak filed a liberal pleasing analysis Tuesday, fervently insisting Chief Justice John Roberts is a staunch conservative, despite what ridiculous right-wingers may think. His reported opinion piece, based on voting analysis by law professors, strained to show Roberts as a loyal conservative Justice, but the evidence is hardly as cut and dried as Liptak's charged tone would suggest. Liptak has always trended left, as when he faulted the "terse" old U.S. Constitution as outdated for failing to guarantee entitlements like health care.

In Congressional testimony on Monday and Tuesday, Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards twisted or failed to tell the truth in several instances.

As shown last night, one of them related to how many of its facilities are involved in the provision of fetal tissue for compensation. Her claim that it's "less than 1 percent" is only plausible if the organization has recently terminated such involvement at many facilities known to have participated in the practice in the recent past. A second more obviously untrue claim, whose falsehood has been completely ignored by the national establishment press, is her contention that "we've never stated" that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms at any of its facilities. Well, yes she has — and as will be seen later, an awful lot of people who you might think would know better still believe the lie.
