Kudos to the Daily Beast for taking issue with a recent court decision that ruled sex trafficking is not a crime of violence.

It's such a damn shame the U.S. is so religious. Otherwise, who knows, maybe mandatory sex ed would be a nationwide reality. 

That's the sentiment conveyed by Daily Beast writer Samantha Allen in her September 3 story "Should Sex Ed Be Mandatory?"

In an interview with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar on Thursday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal would continue to damage the Democratic front-runner unless it was suddenly shut down: “...now that the FBI is involved and now that these e-mails will trickle out between now and January....unless they close this down quickly and completely exonerate everyone, this is a shadow hanging over her campaign.”

The death of 3-year-old Syrian refugee Aylan is heart-wrenching. The deaths of more than 40 million unborn babies worldwide per year is also heart-wrenching. But broadcast networks will only show one of those stories.

ABC, NBC and CBS can no longer argue that they censor graphic pictures from their news shows. Since the story broke, every evening and morning news show has shared the “heartbreaking” imagery of Aylan, a 3-year-old who drowned while fleeing Syria with his family.

You know the liberal media have nothing of value to talk about when they decide to turn on their precious Hollywood allies —for no reason!

Last Sunday, Taylor Swift premiered her new music video “Wildest Dreams” at the VMAs. The surprisingly good video sets 1920’s old Hollywood glam against spectacular African scenery. But according to Jezebel’s highly unsatisfied Madeleine Davies there is a huge problem with the video having “… nary a black person in sight.”

Leave it to the Washington Post to spoil good news with climate alarmism.

Science and environment reporter Chris Mooney reported that a new study of trees concluded the world’s tree population was 7.6 times greater than previously estimated. The researchers calculate that there are more than 3 trillion trees on the planet, 2.64 trillion more than they’d thought there were.

On Wednesday night, Sarah Isgur Flores, Carly Fiorina’s Deputy Campaign Manager, hit back at MSNBC’s Chris Hayes over whether climate change was to blame for the California drought. Hayes seemed shocked that Fiorina would oppose spending trillions to fight climate change as a “remarkable thing for a Republican, a believer in American exceptionalism to say, that there is this huge pressing challenge, it’s a really big thing that the world has to come together in. And it is not going to happen.”

Academy-Award winning British actress Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks, Sense and Sensibility) doesn’t get why younger women are rejecting the label of feminist.

During a Sept. 2 interview with Variety about her new film A Walk in the Woods, the self-described “radical feminist” complained that she found the reluctance for young actressesto embrace the title of “feminist” simply, “bizarre.”

Thompson then astutely surmised the reason must be because these women don’t want to be treated equally.

Montel Williams targeted 'Black Lives Matter' activists on Wednesday's CNN Tonight, especially in the wake of the anti-police "pigs in a blanket; fry like bacon!" chant that its protesters recently used in Minnesota: "The rhetoric is being ratcheted up way too high in 'Black Lives Matter.' And we ought to ratchet it back down, and come up with solutions." Williams later criticized the left-leaning movement for not paying enough attention to black-on-black murders: "I would love to see this whole movement turn to 'Black Lives Matter' – hell, yeah! – in my neighborhood to me!"

The ombudsman for PBS on Thursday chastised anchor Gwen Ifill for mocking Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Twitter. After it became clear that the Senate could not override a presidential veto of the Iran deal, Ifill tweeted, "Take that, Bibi." PBS Ombudsman Michael Gelter derided the comments by the NewsHour host as "inexcusable."

On Thursday, NBC’s Today led with breaking news that Hillary Clinton staffer Bryan Pagliano would invoke the Fifth Amendment and not testify to the House Benghazi Committee about setting up the former Secretary of State’s private e-mail server. Savannah Guthrie wondered: “Is there something to hide? And what does it mean for the Clinton campaign?” Today devoted 6 minutes, 20 seconds to Clinton’s e-mail scandal. By contrast, ABC and CBS could each only muster less than a minute of coverage to the story.

For the second day in a row, Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos on Thursday interviewed a Republican presidential candidate, grilling Jeb Bush on his floundering campaign: "You've had a pretty tough summer. Polling averages show you in single digits nationally, single digits in Iowa, single digits in New Hampshire. What happened and how do you turn it around?"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was known as “Cap” in his playing days. A somewhat understated 3-letter word to describe the league’s all-time leading scorer and one of the largest men to ever roam the NBA hardwood.

However, in a Donald Trump administration --should there be a Donald Trump administration-- Kareem will probably be referred to with four-letter words only.

New York Times reporter Jackie Calmes reported from New Orleans to help Planned Parenthood propagate its latest defense -- that poor women would somehow be deprived of vital medical procedures in Louisiana if the state's two (?) Planned Parenthood clinics were deprived of federal funding, under the histrionic headline "Fears About Push to Cut Planned Parenthood – In Louisiana, Medical Workers Say Many Patients Have No Other Options."

After Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland became just the 34th supporter in the Senate of the Iran deal, the “Big Three” networks all cheered the impeding vote as a major “victory” for the president while offering up zero soundbites from the majority of Congress and public who oppose the deal.
