The bloggers at Our Bad Media embarrassed CNN host Fareed Zakaria host again with some more obvious examples of Zakaria shamelessly, blatantly borrowing other people’s work – in this case on the airwaves of CNN. They brought 26 examples.

A cable-news blogger said CNN trying to blow this off is "unsustainable."

NBC’s Brian Williams was the only anchor on Thursday night to spend 38 seconds announcing that the Justice Department found no evidence to insist New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie knew about the Fort Lee bridge closures that the entire liberal media found fascinating.

But on Friday night, Williams tried to walk it back with an enormous “so far,” no findings against the governor.

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday's New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary.

"Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face."

Indian-American actress Mindy Kaling not only stars in her own sitcom on Fox called “The Mindy Project,” she’s in charge of it. You might think that feminists would celebrate that achievement, but that would show that you don’t know about feminists. Apparently, nothing satisfies them. Instead, they are demanding she use her program to sell feminism, and its crowning joy, abortion.

Kaling committed a gaffe among the Hollywood Left by telling a Flare magazine interviewer she had no plans to address what the magazine called “the American right’s current war on abortion.” Kaling said “It would be demeaning to the topic to talk about it in a half-hour sitcom.”

The Washington Post's Metro section on Saturday carried the headline "Redskins fans say 'Daily Show' misled them: Showdown with Native Americans Was a Surprise." Fans were set up for an ambush to be accused of racism, or loving a racist mascot.

In other words, once again, Jon Stewart's Comedy Central crew lied their faces off to an interview subject they wanted to mock. But this time, the liberal media didn't let it slide. Reporter Ian Shapira laid out just how much Team Stewart lied, and then said "No comment" when they were exposed.

On Tuesday night’s All Things Considered, NPR anchor Robert Siegel awarded a seven-and-a-half minute interview to The New Republic and its editor, Franklin Foer. The magazine is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a new book called “Insurrections of the Mind.”

Siegel found time to ask about a Hendrik Hertzberg book review trashing Ronald Reagan as a “child monarch,” which he described as a “scathing and very amusing read.” He also brought up  a Henry Fairlie piece eviscerating George Will, which Siegel called “another very amusing piece.” But he never found time to discuss the New Republic’s enormous scandal with writer Stephen Glass's slew of wildly fabricated articles in the magazine from 1995 to 1998, memorialized in the movie "Shattered Glass.”

This was spotlighted on Facebook by NARAL Pro-Choice America: The Economist "Democracy in America" blog is reporting that the site GoFundMe decided it would not allow women to use their site to fund their abortions.

Then the writer Emily Bobrow proclaimed that the women requesting money for these “valuable” operations are brave to withstand pro-lifers, and their abortion funding requests “turn the internet’s trolls into some stone-throwing barbarians out of Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Lottery.’” In that tale, a small town annually stones a member of the community to death. So who’s confusing the killer in this real-life scenario?

The pollsters at Gallup reported on Wednesday that Americans' confidence in the media's ability to report "the news fully, accurately, and fairly" has dropped to its previous all-time low of 40 percent. That number was at 55 percent in 1999, but hasn’t been above 50 percent since 2005.

The media is really struggling among Democrats, who have “traditionally expressed much higher levels of confidence in the media than Republicans have,” but their confidence (“great deal or fair amount of trust”) dropped to a 14-year low of 54 percent. Republican confidence dropped to 27 percent.

The Washington Post demonstrated a sudden interest in the political bias of local TV news on Wednesday. WJLA-TV, the ABC station in D.C., was purchased by Sinclair Broadcasting, which is now airing its conservative commentator Mark Hyman in Washington. They warned in a headline, "Under new owner, WJLA airs more conservative content."

Media reporter Paul Farhi  organized a parade of horrified liberals – except he didn’t identify any of them as liberals. In large type on the front page of the Style section was Charles Lewis of the leftist Center for Public Integrity: “They are stuck with an idiosyncratic owner with its own political views and agenda. It’s a nightmarish scenario for journalists.”

In a shocker, New York Times TV critic Alessandra Stanley panned "The View" and new "conservative" co-host Nicolle Wallace.

Stanley found she missed Elisabeth Hasselbeck – “opinionated, emotional, and easily drawn into ideological spats – and dismissed Nicolle Wallace, who “didn’t say a word when Ms. Perez joked about Mitt Romney having a vagina.”

President Obama told reporters with an "edge of resentment" that he was seen as week while Ronald Reagan is "halied as a titan striding the earth."

Obama doesn't seem to realize journalists never hailed Reagan as a titan while he was president. He was perceived as an amiable dunce.

Try this quiz on your conservative friends. Which so-called Republican offered a gooey blurb on the cover of the biography of liberal pro-abortion Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis?

A certain morning host on MSNBC thinks she has an "inspirational" story to tell.

Rapper Kanye West launched a new controversy by demanding the entire audience stand up in Sydney, Australia....including the ones with prosthetic limbs and wheelchairs.

At least when Joe Biden told a disabled man to "stand up, Chuck," he had no idea the man was disabled.

When a Washington Post-ABC News poll ends up finding the "Best News for Republicans," the Post tries to find other findings to highlight in their headlines.

"Majority of Americans find Obama presidency a failure" wasn't going to be bolded on the front page. They went with "Support widens for air strikes" instead. ABC News, their polling partner, never found it.

Megyn Kelly brought on a Florida spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on September 11. When Fox viewers slammed him on Twitter, Hassan Shibly tweeted about alleged similarities between Fox News and ISIS.

The shamelessly partisan Washington Post wants to publicize nothing that helps Republican Ed Gillespie make up ground on Democratic Sen. Mark Warner. A story on 250,000 Virginians losing their insurance coverage because it doesn't meet Obamacare standards appeared on page B-4.

So which Gillespie story has appeared on Page 1? It came on September 3: “Va. underdog Gillespie may have his eye on next race.”

James Hohmann of Politico reported on a "nearly million-dollar" ad buy by Planned Parenthood against two Republican Senate challengers who are "taking heat for their strident opposition to abortion."

It's apparently not "strident" when the Democratic incumbents they're challenging get 100-percent ratings from the "pro-choice" crowd.

David Limbaugh has written a book that departs dramatically from his recent tomes on the worst excesses of the Obama presidency. “Jesus On Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel” explores his journey of faith, from believer to non-believer and back.

There is no “Obama” in the index of this book. It’s a book with an eye on the eternal, not the ephemeral. But he does report there is a problem with Christianity and the culture.

September 12, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson took the opportunity of the second anniversary of the Benghazi fiasco to tweet away about the amazing fact that we still do not know what President Obama was doing in real time as four American public servants were killed in Benghazi.

Bill Maher begins a new season of his HBO smirkfest Real Time on Friday night, so The Washington Post splashed a Maher profile all across the front page of the Style section.

The strange article included claims that Maher was "ideology-free," that he was truly curious about religious people, and that he sounded like the "Tea Party.'
