Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re hitting a few big stories going around social media and debunking some major myths in the process. First, we tackle the “Right to Contraception” bill, which just passed the House with eight Republicans in support. The media has used this as a chance to smear the GOP and conservatives as backward, fundamentalist Christians, but we take a look at what’s actually in the bill and how its language regarding contraception could also be used to protect abortion, which is the actual reason that most Republicans voted against the bill. Then, we discuss what’s going on with monkeypox and how the media is once again misinforming the public. This time, it’s in the name of political correctness, as the left-leaning media companies are loathe to tell you that this disease is primarily being transmitted between gay men and is largely not a threat to everyone else. Lastly, we talk about the very weird push from “elites” like those at the World Economic Forum for people to eat … bugs. Gross.
