Nets Pout Over Pro-Life NC Law as ABC Subs ‘Pregnant Person’ for Woman

May 17th, 2023 3:23 PM

The pro-baby killing “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC were on the case Wednesday morning as they bemoaned the North Carolina legislature overriding Democratic Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of a 12-week limit on abortions.

The North Carolina media have been predictably out of control since the state passed and signed the transgender bathroom law, but their behavior sunk even further following the Orlando terror attack when WRAL chief political correspondent Laura Leslie suggested backers of the law were to blame for the shooting because of their “rhetoric” “in the wake of this horrific anti-gay crime.”

Politifact Hounds N.C. Gov. McCrory for Hitting Human Rights Campaign

May 31st, 2016 4:46 PM
Like a tried and true liberal lapdog, the North Carolina media have applied a full-court press (pun intended) to attack Republican Governor Pat McCrory over the transgender bathroom law to the point that the leftist site Politifact hounded McCrory over a general statement that the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is both powerful and full of secret donors.
