Networks, Liberal Cable News Ignore Virginia Governor’s Endorsement of Aborting Delivered Babies

Networks, Liberal Cable News Ignore Virginia Governor’s Endorsement of Aborting Delivered Babies

Gee, I wonder why

Monday, in a nauseating interview with WTOP, Virginia’s Governor Northam endorsed late and post-term abortion (aka infanticide). Northam was responding a bill introduced by state Delegate Tran which would further loosen restrictions on late-term abortions up to birth. Stacey covered the story here.

In the interview, Northam spoke of situations “where there may be severe deformities [or] a fetus that’s nonviable” saying:

“The infant would be delivered; the infant would be kept comfortable; the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desire, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Watch here:

Tran’s bill, which was defeated by Republicans (thank you, Jesus), would’ve expanded late-term abortions to broadly include situations in which the mother believed delivering a baby could pose a mental health issue. As Stacey pointed out in her post, “Tran’s proposal states that only one physician (the abortion provider) needs to be consulted (the abortion provider). There are no second or third medical opinions required. It’s one of the proposed changes that makes this bill so radical.”

The whole ordeal is a major lurch leftward for Democrats and a candid shot of their actual beliefs on abortion. Nevertheless, the story was blacked out of primetime coverage, not just on network news, but on CNN and MSNBC too.

Newsbusters reported:

There were crickets in large swaths of the liberal media on Wednesday as the left’s attempt to advance late-term abortion measures took an even more gruesome turn as pediatric neurologist and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) articulated on WTOP-FM support for infanticide if parents decide with physicians to not provide care to a delivered child if deemed unviable.

Just as the broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC did earlier in the evening, a NewsBusters analysis found that liberal cable networks CNN and MSNBC ignored Northam’s comments during their primetime programming. For this analysis, CNN and MSNBC shows from 7:00 p.m. Eastern to midnight Eastern were examined.

In contrast, a look at the Fox News Channel programs in that span (The Story, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox News @ Night) yielded 67 minutes and 23 seconds of coverage on Northam’s comments, unsuccessful attempts by Virginia Democrats to pass a late-term abortion bill, and how New York was able to push through such a law last week.

Within those numbers, Fox News @ Night had the most coverage with 17 minutes and 32 seconds. Tucker Carlson Tonight was 61 seconds back at 16 minutes and 31 seconds.

Despite what FNC critics may try to argue, three pro-abortion officials were present on to defend the proposals (plus soundbites from both Northam and Virginia Democratic Delegate Kathy Tran), including Planned Parenthood’s Erica Sackin in Fox News @ Night’s A-block debating Concerned Women for America’s Penny Nance.

Not to mention the dingbat Carlson had on who kept repeating the same talking points over and over. She was so “good” as an example of what Socialist-Democrat abortion mongers are that Limbaugh covered that segment on today’s show.

And you are surprised why?

Besides, anyone with 2 or more brain cells already knows about this train crash delivered by Democrats as those people are still capable of thinking for themselves.

As a Conservative who has lived in VA for over 20 years, it is shocking to me what has happened to this state (a commonwealth, actually).

In this short time, VA has gone from a very solid Red state to a dependably Blue state, with extreme policies and bills like this one becoming acceptable to many who call VA home. Most who live in the densely populated areas are transplants (most to work for the fed gov’t and CTRs or Beltway Bandits. Full disclosure: I am also a transplant, moving to VA from MD after I married a VA man). After the left targeted (successfully) Gov. McDonnell, the left has been able to take over more and more. Terry McCauliffe (the lying CROOK, and Hillary’s CRONY) took us over the brink and so now, here we are.

Northam should have lost, but the Republican Party in VA is weak, made up of RINOs and Good Old Boys (and their spouses) who cannot come up with a descent candidate that they will VOCALLY, UNDIVIDEDLY support. The Attorney General, who also disgraced VA by his statements, is CROOKED, yet he also got elected, easily – both because the Republicans would NOT support the R opponent AND because too many in Northern VA, Norfolk/Hampton Roads, and Richmond areas (i.e. most densely populated areas) will vote for anything with a D next to his/her name.

Thank the Lord this is being stopped – for now. Praying that it will get enough negative attention that people here will WAKE UP and fight against this hijacking of this once great commonwealth.

    Hampton roads, where I live, is still pretty red, especially Virginia Beach and the nearby counties of York and Gloucester. The jackasses from Northern Virginia and a purple Richmond have completely taken over this state, though.

    I share your dismay. I too am a transplant to VA fleeing the Peoples Republic of Maryland. Unfortunately, the VA Republican party shares the same faults or virtues (depending on your viewpoint) as the national Republican Party i.e. they tolerate diverse views within their ranks. The Democrats do not. If you do not toe the party line the Democrats cut you off at the knees. Unfortunately for conservatives we have no hope in Virginia with the continual expansion of the Federal Government (Trump has only managed to slow it) and it’s spill over into NoVA and the Hampton Roads area coupled with the soon to be Amazon Headquarters in NoVA with its liberal workforce Virginia will be forever Blue. While Northam is a result of the dysfunction of the Republican Party in the last election it will not matter in the future how less dysfunctional the Republican Party becomes.
    As Va governors cannot serve consecutive terms and the Senate seats are in the hands of two rather youngish pols (for senators) I expect that you might begin to see Democratic governors leapfrogging one another. A disaster waiting to happen.

Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Order matters.

We’re living in the Age Of Monsters.

Seems like va elected dr mengele gov. Would have thought he was still living in quarryville pa.

I’ve heard this question often asked, but haven’t heard a good explanation yet. Why is bacteria considered life on Mars but a heartbeat is not considered life on earth?

    Milhouse in reply to steakaneggs. | February 1, 2019 at 1:22 am

    It is considered life. The question is whether it’s a person. There’s nothing wrong with killing life, we do it all the time. It’s people who must not be killed except in defense of self or others, or in execution of a lawful sentence for crime. So the debate is over when someone becomes a person. The extreme left position is two years after birth.

      Once again you’ve strayed too far from your territory and tried to remain your same know-it-all self. A fetus is not considered life by most biologists (who are quite leftist)…no more than a collection of stem cells or tissue cultures are considered life.

      The commenter above is right that there is a discrepancy, but it comes from the characteristics of life, some of which are applied a bit arbitrarily across the domains of life. There are certain bacteria that can’t survive outside of an animal GI tract (not terribly different from a womb)…however, the bacteria are considered alive.

        Milhouse in reply to healthguyfsu. | February 3, 2019 at 10:29 am

        You are wrong. There is nobody, on the right or the left, who does not consider a fetus to be alive. There is no debate on that. The debate is about when personhood begins, because other than extreme vegans nobody has a problem with killing a living thing that is not a person. And since personhood is not a scientific property, the range of views on when it starts runs from the moment of fertilization until the baby’s second birthday.

BREAKING: Washington Post has rewritten their entire report on Democrat Kathy Tran introducing a bill to allow full term abortions

Side-by-side screenshots:

Right = original
Left = rewritten

Article contains *0* updates showing it’s been updated despite still using same URL

Wapo is still considered a trusted news source by NewsGuard.

“By licensing the NewsGuard ratings, advertisers limit their advertising, including programmatic advertising, to sites that meet the NewsGuard criteria” explains the neocon extension’s official website “Advertisers use this data and related information about sites to craft efficient—and safe—ad campaigns.” Programmatic advertising is essentially the use of automation to purchase ads, as opposed to manual selection and placement of ads by humans. Adweek calls programmatic advertising “the most important trend in advertising,” and estimates that 82 percent of ads will be programmatic by 2020.

“Ad tech companies have software to keep brands safe from hate speech and pornography. But artificial intelligence cannot root out false news because false news is designed to look like real news. NewsGuard adds an extra layer of protection as the only process that involves human beings—trained journalists—reviewing every website.”

Capitol Hill reporter Henry Rogers went out and couldn’t find a single Democrat Senator who had heard anything about this.

So they said….

And yet, a rube like me from the cornfields of flyover saw probably 40-50 different articles on this in the first 24 hours, including statements from Republican Senators

I will open with a statement that I am not a nice person, and I do not believe in mercy to the enemy.

This is going to happen. Abortion and infanticide/child sacrifice are Democrat sacraments. If it is going to happen anyway, I hope that its operation ends any hope that Governor Northam has of grandchildren or any other extensions of his line. Let him die along, unloved, despised, and the only vain hope he has of succor being . . . Democrats who realize that he is of no further use to them.

I recently posted about progressives in Texas chanting “Hail Satan” while protesting a pro-life rally in Austin Texas. I was assured by the resident expert on everything, that they didn’t really mean it. So, Millhouse, exactly what sort of progressives do you think are pushing for the killing of baby’s outside the womb?

    Milhouse in reply to Max17. | February 1, 2019 at 1:29 am

    They very obviously didn’t mean it. Satan doesn’t exist. The only people who believe in him are Christians and Moslems. Those people don’t believe in him, therefore they cannot possibly have been worshiping him. If this is really not obvious to you then you must be a complete idiot. The reason they were chanting it was equally obvious to every normal person — they did it to taunt and upset their Christian opponents, and for no other reason.

    Now, how does this story change anything? Exactly what sort of progressives do you think are pushing for the killing of baby’s outside the womb? “Progressives” who don’t think there’s anything wrong with murdering babies, that’s who. Where on earth could you have got the idea that this means they worship your fictional anti-god?

    Milhouse in reply to Max17. | February 1, 2019 at 1:36 am

    Question: Do you think people who loudly hail the Flying Spaghetti Monster really believe in it?! Do you think there exists even one person who actually believes in the FSM? Of course not. The whole point of Pastafarianism is that the FSM is obviously not real, and in the Pastafarians’ opinion neither is God.

    The Texas provocateurs hailing Satan was exactly the same.

Northam is scum. Period. Full stop.

And George F. Will and Bill Kristol supported him because he’s a No Trumper.

It’s time We The People ABORT the demonCraps ,,, to quote Mad Maxine Waters ,,, What Ever It Takes !!!
