An unborn baby’s value depends on whether he or she is wanted, according to recent media reports on two cases of brain-dead pregnant women. 

Doctors delivered 32-week-old Angel in April after keeping his brain-dead mother, 22-year-old Karla Perez, on life support for 54 days. Last November, 33-year-old Marlise Muñoz became brain-dead while 14 weeks pregnant and was taken off life support at the urging of her family while still pregnant – at 23 weeks. Pro-abortion media like Cosmo, that had supported Muñoz, celebrated Perez. AP and NBC reflected whether the baby was wanted or not in language – referring to Perez’s unborn child as a “baby” and Muñoz’s as a “fetus.”

Oh-so-sensitive CNN journalist Chris Cuomo went on his Facebook page to address the recent anti-cop quotes that he says were taken out of context. He got in some hot water for saying police officers, “you know how they are.”

Cuomo misquoted himself, saying "that's how they are." He didn't want anyone to think he had an anti-police "animus."

On Tuesday's At This Hour, CNN's John Berman wondered if American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), which organized the Muhammad cartoon conference that was attacked by two Islamists on Sunday, was only provoking more terrorist violence by planning to hold similar events in the future. Berman asked AFDI vice president Robert Spencer, "By holding more events, then, I suppose you could continue to say, are you looking for more violence to keep on making this point?"

Hillary's campaign didn't outright hurl Bill under the bus. Even so, the former prez might be feeling a bit too close for comfort to the grimy side of a Greyhound.

Asked by Andrea Mitchell today to comment on footage of poor ol' Bill saying he would continue to give paid speeches because he's "gotta pay our bills," senior Hillary campaign official Amanda Renteria said "that's President Clinton. We are focused on her." Whatever happened to "two for the price of one?"

Leading off a report on Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign for Tuesday's CBS This Morning, correspondent Julianna Goldman proclaimed: "Secretary Clinton has been trying to frame her campaign around issues like immigration reform....But her message has been muddled by a series of recent distractions, including questions about donations to the Clinton Foundation. And this morning her campaign is once again trying to break through the noise."

Remember “#BringBackOurGirls?” It was the relentlessly hyped and utterly silly Twitter campaign aimed at the African Islamist terror group Boko Haram. It’s hard to know if anyone actually thought tweets would get radical Islamists to release the nearly 300 Christian girls abducted from their school in Chibok, Nigeria. But it did allow Western liberals to advertise their sympathy. And ineffectualness.

First Lady Michelle Obama was one of the most prominent liberals involved. She was photographed holding a card bearing #BringBackOutGirls, underscored by her sad face – which became the face of “hashtag activism.”

White House press secretary Josh Earnest held a “gaggle” for reporters on Air Force One on Monday around noon. The questioning on the Islamist shooting outside Dallas came up, but Earnest’s answer – no act of expression deserves violence – but the questions.

Since the “gaggle” is an untelevised briefing and the White House transcripts traditionally avoid the identity of the reporter, we can only guess which “objective” journalist really, really wanted the cartoon contest denounced by the president:

Jeremy Peters, the New York Times' designated critic of Republican presidential hopefuls, played the money card on Monday's front page, over a headline that reached back to the 2012 campaign: "G.O.P. Hopefuls Now Try to Woo the 47 Percent." In Peters' previous front-page stories on the GOP field, he has variously accused them of being ignorantly anti-science (in a misleading report on the vaccination controversy) and anti-immigrant.

The kneejerk response from MSNBC's Chris Matthews was boilerplate liberal apologia for the jihad -- yes, Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller and her American Freedom Defense Initiative have the right to organize a Draw Muhammad contest, but doing so was deliberately provocative and "caused" two fanatical Islamists to open fire outside the event.

Both gunmen were killed by a police officer, who was armed, this because the event was held in Texas and not France.

On Monday, neurosurgeon and Tea Party favorite Ben Carson officially threw his hat into the 2016 presidential race and after his announcement, Conan O’Brien mercilessly attacked his conservative ideology on his late night TBS program.

While covering the attempted murder of the attendees at the American Freedom Defense Initiative’s (AFDI) draw the Prophet Muhammad contest, MSNBC host José Díaz-Balart made sure on Monday that his audience was familiar the group’s "controversial" character.
 
In fact, the word "controversial" appeared no less than five times while the story was featured. Controversial NBC reporter Ayman Mohyeldin, the former al-Jazeera staffer who implied that American Sniper hero Chris Kyle was a racist who conducted killing sprees, called the assembly a "very highly controversial event" which was organized by "highly controversial figures."

Journalists help promote Hollywood celebrities while condemning average Americans for causing climate change. The same media go out of their way to ignore or excuse the hypocrisy of celebrity “environmentalists” who fly their private jets around the world, rent mega-yachts and live in massive mansions.

Avatar Director James Cameron warned of a future “world that’s in shambles” because of climate change, and said he believes “in ecoterrorism” yet, he owns an impressive private collection of motorcycles, cars, dirt bikes, a yacht, a helicopter, a Humvee fire truck and a $32-million submarine. ABC and CBS even praised Cameron for his submarine purchase, with CBS’s Gayle King saying she loved his “passion and curiosity.”

Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee’s entry into the GOP 2016 presidential field is sure to bring attacks on his social conservatism by liberal elites if recent history is any guide. Despite his background as a former pastor, liberal journalists seem confounded by his sticking to religious tradition when it comes to issues like same-sex marriage, federally-funded birth control or even Christmas.

On Tuesday, CBS This Morning swooned over President Obama’s final appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night, with the hosts heaping praise on the liberal comedian’s tenure at CBS.

In covering the failed terrorist attack at a Prophet Mohammad cartoon event in Texas, NBC neglected to describe the two gunmen on Monday evening as “Islamic extremists” or “terrorists,” while ABC, CBS, and NBC prominently touted the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) description of AFDI as an “anti-Muslim” or “anti-Islamic” “hate group.”
