Krauthammer on Hobby Lobby – Media lies will help Democrats

Yup. Charles Krauthammer is right. I’m not sure that I have ever seen such wide-spread media bias in my lifetime. The 16 news headlines and ledes I documented on Monday were just the tip of the iceberg, and the faithful are swallowing the meme whole … the mean guys on the Supreme Court are taking away your birth control.

From National Review.

“Certainly it’s going help Democrats,” he said on Tuesday’s Special Report, “unless you know the case, unless you know that the stories being told about the war on women — that women are being denied access to health care — is preposterous.”

I’m reminded of the GOP debate back in January 2012 where ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos asked a question – out of left field – about contraception. The question was a set up, designed to get Republican candidates wrapped up in an issue Democrats knew would kick off a firestorm. The media and the left rekindled an attack front on the GOP that did not exist at the time.

In the absence crisis, manufacture one and then blame conservatives and Republicans for the problem that does not exist. It’s the left’s political strategy and the media is clearly in on it. That’s what you’ve seen during the last two days when it comes to the Hobby Lobby case.

    Krauthammer is losing his edge,the constant exposure to the baby-murderers has him
    almost believing them. We should voice our dismay that the vote was not 9-0 & marvel
    at the ignorance of four of those judges.

    Could it be that the Supremes for once grew a SPINE for a change Mr. Krauthammer?

    Of course the media will help the democrats by emphasizing what the influential ‘crats have to say, even though what they say are lies. Tune into any news (democrat) entertainment show and Obama and Clinton will be featured, not C.K. You have to seek out Steve, FOX or Rush to get the truth, that is, the correct interpretation of the facts.
    As stated very well above, women are not being denied anything. HL is paying for a majority of contraceptive methods, just not the ones that will kill a fetus. If HL — or similar company — employees want one of the abortifacients, they can buy it themselves. They are not being “denied” anything!
    So, why would the lefty democrats lie about the SCOTUS decision and why would the media help spread the lie? So the democrats, especially Hillary, can raise money from their base and those who believe what the lefty media tells them, thus, they have only a limited, false interpretation of the facts.
    That part is all about money and the power it brings, especially to poor Hillary.

    I just called Senator Train’s office. He is asking Hobby Looby to conform to CT law, and provide all contraceptives to it’s employees.

    The person on the phone told me that Senator Train believes that HL should not impose their religious beliefs on their emoyees. What?
    I ask for his resignation.
