ANOTHER FABRICATED PHOBIA FROM FAKE-NEWS MEDIA

THE FURIOUS FAKE NEWS OF FEMINIST NOVELISTS

Commentary by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham

Since 1973, liberal feminists have celebrated the “right to choose abortion” without admitting the horror - over 60 million lives have violently and prematurely ended since the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade. The liberals who champion abortion are far more comfortable panicking that abortion “rights” are always in danger, especially when Republicans control Washington.

ALL AMERICANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO CRITICIZE THE PRESS

Commentary by David Limbaugh

At the risk of sending the left into a state of apoplexy, a monolithic, biased, renegade, politicized press is a far greater threat to liberty than a president criticizing the media.
