On October 1, Republican gubernatorial candidate for Arizona, Kari Lake was presented with an admittedly biased question regarding her pro-life views. Lake squashed the targeted question and pointed out not only the bias in the “reporting” but the radical abortion views of her opponent, Democrat Katie Hobbs.

The reporter asked: “Abortion is effectively banned in the state right now. Tell me, is that something that you support?”
Her cadence in the question was evidence enough to tell that she supported abortion. Her tone insenuated that it would be crazy to consider supporting abortion bans which Lake does (and should).
Lake completely scorched the question by showing how pro-life she unashamedly is.
I support saving as many lives as possible and what I really wanna know, and I’ve been waiting, I tune into you guys all the time, I wanna know where Katie Hobbs stands. I never hear you guys ask her that. I’m pro-life. My plan would be [that] every woman who walks into an abortion clinic know that there are options out there, they don’t have to choose that [abortion]. There’s families who would love to adopt a baby and right now, the way it’s been going, they [pregnant mothers] go in and they only have one option. Nobody tells them that there’s other options. We wanna help our women. If they’re afraid, we wanna help them. We wanna give women healthcare. We wanna help people.
To take it a step further, Lake pointed out the extreme views of her opponent, Hobbs.
But I really challenge you, I’m happy to get back to you on this, when you find out where Katie Hopps stands. Because let me tell you where she stands. She supports abortion right up until birth and after birth. She supports if a baby survives a botched abortion, that that baby die on a cold metal tray.
Lake, unfortunately, is right. Her opponent, Hobbs, presently serves as Arizona’s Secretary of State. She called AZ’s present pro-life laws that criminalize abortion “draconian.” She also wholeheartedly supports abortion and on her site, does not indicate any restrictions on abortion.
Furthermore, Lake showed the undeniable bias of the reporter and reporters like her.
“None of you ever try to get her to talk about her stance. So get back to me after you do. And tell her that I wanna debate this topic on October 12th but she really needs to show up for that debate,” she said.
Unfortunately, this is the reality of modern day “reporting/journalism.” Leftist media focuses entirely on painting conservatives in a negative light while propping up leftist views.
As a matter of fact, journalists often hide and cover for radical democrats who support abortion up until birth. The Media Research Center’s Newsbusters division conducted a study on morning and evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC regarding extreme abortion views of Democratic candidates. The study found that from January 1, 2022 to August 31, 2022, there was NO coverage of the radical nature of numerous anti-life candidates.
While it’s a shame that reporting is no longer just reporting, it’s great to see people like Lake point out the bias of the left, especially regarding their pro-abortion narrative.
