CBS Offers Press Release to 'Devout Catholic' Biden Pushing Abortion

January 18th, 2024 6:04 PM

On Thursday’s CBS Mornings, they turned to reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns in New Hampshire for a story recounting the Republican presidential candidates raucously attacking either other – as globalist RINOS or tantrum-throwers, take your pick. But then they turned to the Other Party, and there were no attacks, as if there were no Biden challengers.

Instead, they reported what amounted to a campaign press release. They couldn’t mention Biden was skipping New Hampshire (like Iowa, too white), or that Democrat challengers like Congressman Dean Phillips of Minnesota attack Biden as hostile to democracy.

Co-host Gayle King touted “On the Democratic side, CBS news has exclusive, new details about how President Biden plans to galvanize voters by focusing on the issue of abortion rights.” There wasn’t one word about how Biden’s ardent advocacy of abortion badly clashes with Team Biden’s “devout Catholic with a rosary in his pocket” spin.

King said to reporter Nancy Cordes: “You know the feelings are intense on both sides of this topic.” Cordes agreed:

CORDES: They sure are, but they do drive Democrats to the polls. That's why as the Republicans duke it out in New Hampshire, the Biden campaign is switching things up. It had been keeping a pretty low profile, but that is about to change. CBS News has learned the president is going to hold his first joint campaign rally with the vice president and their spouses since announcing his bid for re-election. It's taking place on Tuesday in northern Virginia, and the focus of that rally will be, as you mentioned, Gayle, reproductive rights.

The Biden campaign is also going to launch a new ad this weekend in seven battleground states and we're told the ad will focus on the role that the Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump, played in eliminating the federal right to an abortion. Now, the timing of all this is no accident. This coming Monday would have been the 51st anniversary of the Roe v Wade supreme court decision. Since it was struck down in 2022, new abortion restrictions have been imposed in 21 states.

Cordes also touted the Democrat position as popular, according to a CBS poll from October:

A recent CBS News poll shows 57% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases. That's why Democratic strategists have been banging the drum. They've been urging the Biden campaign to go big on this issue. It is proven to drive Democratic voters to the polls again and again over the last couple of years, and that could be crucial as the campaign looks for ways to boost voter enthusiasm in the lead up to November, Gayle.

All in all, it sounds like a rah-rah call to kill more babies.
