Newt Gingrich on “Meet the Press”: Slams Media Bias on Joe Biden’s “Put Ya’ll Back in Chains” Remark, and on Abortion; Gets NYT “Journalist” Tom Friedman to Admit He is a “Planned Parenthood Democrat” – Video 9/2/12
Here is video of Newt Gingrich on “Meet the Press” yesterday powerfully pointing out the bias in the media against Republicans on the issue of abortion. Gingrich pointed out that it is the Democrats who have “the most extreme” position on abortion in their party platform, supporting taxpayer-funded abortions even in the eight and ninth month of pregnancy. He reminded the liberal panel that President Obama “voted three times” in Illinois to “protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of an abortion still alive.” Yet, Gingrich said the media never talks about the extreme position Democrats have taken, and instead constantly seek to demonize Republicans on the issue.
The New York Times’ Thomas Freidman then proceeded to illustrate the very bias Gingrich had just spoken of. He said flat out, “I’m a Planned Parenthood Democrat,” who supports the view on abortion adopted by Democrats, before later reminding everyone he is “a journalist.”
