1. Outrageous: NBC Blames ‘Current Political Climate’ for Human Trafficking Deaths

 

On Monday, NBC’s Today shamefully exploited the deaths of illegal immigrants smuggled into the U.S. to attack the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress. After reporting on how 39 people were found in the back of tractor trailer in San Antonio, Texas, nine of whom died due to the extreme 100-degree heat, correspondent Gabe Gutierrez declared: “Some blame the current political climate.”

2. CBS to Abortion Provider: Can We ‘Believe’ Pro-Life Group Isn’t Violent?

 

CBS This Morning on Monday highlighted an abortion battle in Kentucky and the efforts to close the last remaining clinic. Journalist Anna Werner talked to the clinic’s director and pressed her on whether she really “believes” the assertion by a pro-life group that they are non-violent.

3. CNN: Reporters Obsess Over Russia Because ‘Journalists Love America’

 

According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, the reason journalists cover Russia non-stop is because they “love America.” The liberal Reliable Sources anchor battled with Kellyanne Conway about the cable network’s priorities on Sunday.

6. UK Guardian: Charlie Gard Case Justified As ‘Children Do Not Belong To Their Parents’

 

On Monday July 24, the parents of the terminally ill baby Charlie Gard released a statement that they would be withdrawing their petition to have their son treated. Citing the deterioration of Charlie’s condition and the loss of a “window of opportunity” they have instead opted to spend what little time they have left with their son. While many in the UK and across the world mourned the travesty and injustice of the court’s decision, others sought to justify the reasoning behind it. In a piece for The Guardian entitled “Despite Charlie Gard’s Tragic Story, We Must Respect The Process Of Our Courts,” UCL health professor, Ian Kennedy, expressed sympathy for the plight of Charlie, but ultimately justified it on the basis that “children do not belong to their parents.”
