Journalists have an ethical duty to report the truth, to correct errors quickly, and to take responsibility for their work. As noted here by Kurt Eichenwald writing in Newsweek, the New York Times has not only failed in its responsibility, but has kept online a version of a story that has been completely discredited.
Republicans nationwide have urged their state attorneys general and governors to look into Planned Parenthood affiliate organizations.
Some progressives are urging pro-choice legislative leaders to more aggressively support Planned Parenthood before anti-choice narratives get too much traction.
Republican attacks on Planned Parenthood have stalled a bill that would have helped wounded and paralyzed veterans get access to fertility treatments.
Jeb Bush has bragged that Florida is “the only state, I believe, to have funded with state monies crisis pregnancy centers.” He’s wrong about that.
Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), for example, was not “chilled” enough by the video to do anything about it when he first saw it at least a month earlier than it was released to the public, as he admitted to Roll Call.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has ordered an investigation of Planned Parenthood and moved to block the organization from building a reproductive health-care facility.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s reputation took a drubbing in the aftermath of the “religious freedom restoration act.” But many progressives feel his would-be adversary, John Gregg, isn’t progressive enough to satisfy voters.
A possible Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Colorado, under fire by abortion rights advocates for waffling on her abortion stance, has apologized for telling an anti-choice radio host that she’d never called herself “pro-choice.”
Some progressives argue that Sanders’ laser-like focus on economic inequality is too narrow—not just because he doesn’t talk about other issues, but because the way he talks about his favorite issue only tells part of the story.
