MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts took special time out of his news broadcast Tuesday afternoon to give Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards free rein to promote her abortion conglomerate and slam the Texas legislature for their efforts to increase the health standards of abortion clinics across the state.

Happy Independence Day, or, as the left might call it this year, “Original Sin Saturday.” July 4th is when we celebrate the birth of The United States. But, whereas you commemorate the inception of what Lincoln called “the last best hope of earth,” liberals lament that flawed people had the audacity to create a flawed nation. Then, that flawed nation had the bad taste to prosper!
It’s that left-wing understanding of America that’s behind the push to erase or blur our history. The purge of the Confederate flag is currently the noisiest, but by no means the only, prong of the attack from activists and academics and the media who love them.

On the June 30 edition of America, Jorge Ramos and Ted Cruz engaged in a testy back and forth over the Texas senator’s views on gay marriage. Ramos asked Cruz: “But aren’t you discriminating? Are you putting gays and the LGBT community as second class citizen[s]?” Cruz replied by citing his belief that “following the Constitution isn’t discriminating against anyone.”
Toward the end of the segment, Ramos continued to pester the Republican senator on the issue, wondering why Cruz “would be discriminating” if gay people are born that way. Cruz hit back at Ramos and the media in general with a fiery response: “Look, we did this interview to talk about my new book, A Time For Truth. And one of the things I’m amazed at, is the media, with all respect, is obsessed with sex. It’s the only thing you want to talk about.”

According to liberal actor and anti-vaccine activist Jim Carrey, mandating vaccines for children in order to prevent deadly infectious diseases is fascism.
In a June 30 twitter tirade, Carrey attacked California Gov. Jerry Brown as a “corporate fascist” for signing SB--277 into law. The bill will eliminate individual religious vaccine exemptions. The recent Disneyland Measles outbreak provided some of the momentum for the bill, but it still faced strong opposition from anti-vaccination alarmists who claim they are dangerous to children and can cause autism.

Third Eye Blind’s singer songwriter Stephan Jenkins found out this week what happens when you get drunk with a bunch of political reporters in Washington, D.C.
The Daily Beast reported July 1 that the journalists were at an album-release party for Dopamine, "for the bar food and the hard liquor." Rather than being a discussion on the 90s rock band’s latest music, the drunk group debated politics and Jenkins insulted conservatives, libertarians, Republicans and George W. Bush, presidential candidate Marco Rubio and others.

Perhaps Conan O'Brien and his writers should be a little less sloppy. On Monday, the comedian mocked Jeb Bush for his recent attack on the Confederate flag, describing it as a new opinion. Except, it isn't at all.

In an exclusive interview with newly announced Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie aired on Wednesday’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer used attacks from left-wing detractors to grill the New Jersey governor: “For all your talk about compromise, though, you have a mixed bag of reaction in this state. You know, I drove into your event today and I drove past a pretty hefty group of protesters. I think a lot of them were teachers, and they were holding up signs that said ‘Liar’ and ‘Bully.’”

If there's one thing the Supreme Court accomplished last Friday (besides unleashing cultural chaos on America), it was ending the liberal media's charade. Whatever scrap of journalistic impartiality existed flew out the courtroom window Friday when the press decided these five justices not only invented a right to same-sex marriage but to censorship too.
Less than a week after the Court trampled the Constitution, one of the biggest stories of the ruling is the industry tasked with relaying it -- the mainstream press.

Though both Jonathan Chait and Amanda Marcotte approve of same-sex marriage, they differed on Monday in their assessment of the case against it. Chait, of New York magazine, claimed that anti-gay-marriage arguments have been pitiful and consequently were doomed from the get-go. He declared that “preventing gay people from marrying each other serves no coherent purpose. Allowing them to marry harms nobody.”
Meanwhile, Marcotte argued in a Talking Points Memo column that same-sex marriage helps to “redefine…marriage as an institution of love instead of oppression,” and that the anti-gay-marriage forces are clinging to the idea that marriage is “about dutiful procreation and female submission.”

On Wednesday, CBS This Morning acted as the unofficial press shop for Barack and Michelle Obama as the network devoted 3 segments totaling 2 minutes and 47 seconds as an opportunity to promote the family’s recent activities in the White House.

George Stephanopoulos and the crew at Good Morning America on Wednesday did their best to dismiss the latest batch of Hillary Clinton's e-mails to be released, insisting that there are "no bombshells." Stephanopoulos in May apologized after it was revealed that he secretly donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, hiding it from his bosses and viewers.

T. Becket Adams at The Washington Examiner reports newly released e-mails demonstrate the pliant press Hillary Clinton counted on while she was Secretary of State. The most embarrassing e-mail concerned Leslie Gelb, one of those revolving-door liberals – former appointee of Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter, and former New York Times correspondent and columnist.
Gelb wrote a fluffy profile of Hillary for the Sunday newspaper supplement Parade Magazine in 2009, after a friend e-mailed her: "He said he would give you a veto over content and looked me in the eye and said, 'she will like it.'

MSNBC host Chris Hayes devoted a segment during Monday’s All In to commenting on the financial crisis in Greece and chose not to attack the left-wing government or any of the previous governments for their spending habits, but rather laid blame at the feet of “morally monstrous” European banks and others in the Eurozone for grinding “Greece into misery” in “a sadistic exercise in sheer will to power.”

On Tuesday night, the major broadcast networks refused to cover the latest news regarding the fight for religious liberty as Oklahoma’s Supreme Court ruled hours earlier that a Ten Commandments monument at the State Captiol grounds in Oklahoma City must be removed due to it being “obviously religious in nature” and “an integral part of the Jewish and Christian faiths.” While the networks ignored this story, the Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File dedicated a full segment to the decision with host Megyn Kelly explaining that it’s “what some are calling a new blow to the faithful” and possibly the start of “religiously based divisiveness.”
