Head, Meet Desk: Fox Nation Illustrates Transgender Healthcare Story With Photo From “Mrs. Doubtfire”

Who’s Been Called In As “Experts” To Talk Birth Control On Cable News?

Who’s been called in as “experts” on cable news to discuss the current debate over birth control? More men than women, that’s who.
