John Avlon unsurprisingly bashed conservatives on Monday's New Day on CNN during a panel discussion on potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates. Avlon labeled the recent Iowa Freedom Summit "the dean of the crazy caucus, Steve King's, cattle call," and asserted that the media covered the conference because "it's the place most likely for a Republican aspirant to say something incredibly crazy in an attempt to pander to the base out in Iowa. So, we're all hoping for the car crash – and there were a lot of them."

Leading off an interview with Bobby Jindal on ABC's This Week on Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos played a clip of the Louisiana governor and potential Republican 2016 contender speaking about his faith during a religious event on Saturday: "We can't just elect a candidate and fix what ails our country. We can't just pass a law and fix what ails our country. We need a spiritual revival to fix what ails our country. It is like God has given us the book of life....And on the last page, our God wins."

Nineteen leading pro-life organizations joined the Media Research Center to chastise the networks for their near blackout of the 2015 March for Life.

Entertainment Weekly is trying a new method of writing: Oscar obituaries.

In a Jan. 26 piece for Entertainment Weekly (EW), writer Emily Blake lamented that “abortion comedy” “Obvious Child” was “nominated for nothing” for the upcoming Oscars. Laying out the reasons for the Oscar-censorship, she bashed the Academy Awards for refusing to recognize the “warm and vulnerable” film full of “humor.”

Just days after Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, Alaska, introduced a bill to permit oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), President Barack Obama announced his plan to designate millions of acres of ANWR in a way that bans drilling.

Obama announced on January 25 that his administration would seek wilderness status for parts of the ANWR including coastal plains, according to Reuters. Congress would have to approve the designation, which would prohibit oil and gas drilling. Several Alaska legislators, including Murkowski, were upset by the announcement.

There History Channel's 'Sons of Liberty' veered so far off real history as to be laughable starting with its presentation of middle-aged portly Sam Adams as some sort of urban ninja as played by a modern day hunk.

To the hypocritical Hollywood elite, rape is deplorable and condemnable on college campuses but pedophilia on the big screen and during after-hour parties, is perfectly OK.

Just look at this year’s Sundance favorite- “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” features a 15-year-old girl losing her virginity to her mother’s boyfriend. The media couldn’t be more in love with the film, with outlets like Variety, Hollywood Reporter and The Guardian heaping praise on it.

Following President Obama’s State of the Union address on January 20, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sat down with Scott Pelley, CBS Evening News anchor, for an exclusive interview that aired on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. Throughout the interview, the CBS anchor peppered his GOP guests with several liberal questions and even questioned Speaker Boehner’s facial expressions during the State of the Union. Pelley asked the Speaker “it must be a hell of a thing to sit behind the president knowing that 30 million Americans are watching you for an hour. Do you practice that scowl?”

It would seem that the conversation at Politico went something like this: "Hey, we need to hit the Obama administration for the havoc its policies have wreaked on the middle class. But we can't go after them too hard, because that might burn some bridges, and we'll lose our stenographer — er, journalistic — access. So we need to use someone sympathetic to Democrats who will know how not to go over the line."

They chose contributing editor Zachary Karabell, who during most of his writeup did a presentable job of being not too critical while posing as an objective observer — that is, until his final four paragraphs.

While badgering Mike Huckabee on Sunday, Meet the Press anchor Chuck Todd inaccurately claimed that overturning Roe V. Wade would make abortion "illegal."

Are members of the media “post-abortive?” 

A day before the 2015 March for Life, prolife leaders staged a “Million to One Memorial Die-In” in front of the White House. For the event, youth lay on the pavement in a fetal position to “demonstrate unity with the preborn” by representing the 57 million lives lost to abortion since 1973. While there, Urban Cure's Star Parker slammed the media for their coverage of abortion and mused, “I'm just wondering how many of them are post-abortive themselves.”

On today's Morning Joe, Nicolle Wallace was asked to comment on conservative columnist Byron York's panning of Palin's speech as "long, rambling, and at times barely coherent." York's column also passed along criticism of the speech by a number of Iowa Republicans.  Wallace said that it was interesting to see York come "full circle," since back in 2008 he had been a Palin defender, blaming the campaign for the way she was packaged.  Wallace then doubled down with this dig: "This is who she is. This to me is evidence that she has finally shed every last one of those annoying handlers." Reeoorw!
