Matt Bevin’s Pro-Life Credentials are Scaring the Left

Published

Leftist outlet Mother Jones acknowledges that Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin’s pro-life legislation may be a winning issue come election time.

Bevin tweeted on October 23, 2019, “4 Legislative Sessions > > > 10 #ProLife Bills”, alongside a video holding babies. He added, “The sanctity of human life should NOT be controversial, and our administration is committed to protecting it.”

Later on during that afternoon, Bevin tweeted a video of an appearance he made in 2018 on Fox News, with a message stating,“we will ALWAYS fight against the barbaric and gruesome practice of live dismemberment abortion, which seeks to undermine and devalue the sanctity of human life.”

Bevin is currently locked in a tight race with the current Attorney General Andy Beshear. The Kentucky Governor is counting on his pro-life bona fides to take him to victory at the polls.

The Kentucky Governor took charge by passing a pro-life heartbeat bill earlier this year which would ban most abortions after six weeks.

This naturally generated much controversy, which Bevin takes pride in embracing.

He said, “When you are the governor, you are accused of many things. But one of the things that I take great pride [in] is being accused of being the most pro-life governor in America. I love it.”

Now that the American Civil Liberties Union is going to court against some of Bevin’s pro-life policies, the Kentucky Governor is ready for these cases go all the way up to the Supreme Court.

During the Kentucky State of the Commonwealth address earlier this year where the Governor talked about his pro-life legislation, Bevin said, “Some of these will go all the way to the…US Supreme Court, but at the end of the day we will prevail because we stand on the side of right and we stand on the side of life.”

Bevin is among the most conservative governors in America. He has set a new standard for other Republican Governors to follow by bolstering Kentucky’s Second Amendment credentials through his signing of Constitutional Carry into law earlier this year. In 2017, he also signed pro-worker, Right to Work legislation into law.

For principled conservatives, Bevin is among the best governors in America.

Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years

A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.

Published

Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.

This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.

Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.

MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.

This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:

  • The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
  • Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
  • Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
  • An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
  • A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
  • Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)

Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.

As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
