THANK YOU: Salena Zito uses the ‘e’-word (extreme) to describe Beto’s stance on abortion

Wow, what a day. There’s a movie in theaters (“Unplanned”) showing how the horrors of what Planned Parenthood does turned a former director into a pro-life activist, and a journalist actually dared to call Beto O’Rourke’s position on abortion “extreme.”
You might remember that O’Rourke slyly changed the subject when asked specifically about his stance on third-trimester abortions during one of his famous countertop sermons. Then he was confronted by journalist Salena Zito, who asked him specifically about his stance on third-trimester abortions, and once again he deflected to the worn-out talking point, “I know better than to assume anything about a woman’s decision … when it comes her to reproductive rights.”
So it’s refreshing to read Zito in the Washington Examiner call O’Rourke’s abortion stance “extreme,” a word rarely applied to progressives. They’re just “passionate.”
In the largest mainstream, corporate news organizations it's rare to find journalists who are pro-life, sit in a pew once a week, went to a state school, or go hunting. Those cultural & geographic experiences make a difference in the way a story is covered https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/beto-takes-extreme-abortion-stance-media-doesnt-bat-an-eye

Imagine the reaction if a Republican took a position opposed by 87 % of the country.
The press would immediately report how “extreme” that position & then pundits would spend a week reinforcing that extremist label with a variety of different modifiers. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/beto-takes-extreme-abortion-stance-media-doesnt-bat-an-eye

Exactly. Journalists and pundits would never think to call third-trimester abortions “extreme” because Planned Parenthood has assured them that it’s all a question of women’s reproductive health. What they would consider extreme is Sen. Ben Sasse’s Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act — what kind of nut would introduce legislation like that? And yet there were crickets when Democrats voted en masse against it.
MSM won't do it so GOP campaigners need to precede "candidate" with "extreme pro-abortion" whenever they talk about Beto and others in the race who share his stance. @parscale @GOPChairwoman @hughhewitt

Liberals sanctify their candidates first and then rationalize the positions they take.

Conservatives sanctify the positions their candidates take and then rationalize their behavior

None of those news rooms could ever understand me or how me and my family live. Even when I was in Iraq when CNN showed up we were surprised by them. It was like they were from another planet. One ever tried to get a prisoner to say we beat him when she knew it was a lie

"Journalists" are entirely out-of-touch with "flyover country." They couldn't possibly care less about the lives of people in this region. They couldn't possibly know less about them, either.

We’ve all seen it: Democrats are leaning more and more leftward and taking more “extreme” positions, like supporting infanticide, entertaining socialist garbage like the Green New Deal, eliminating the private health insurance industry, etc. It would be nice if the news media didn’t keep moving the bar so they always seem like the centrists.
