Sen. Mike Lee is using the Senate floor to tell the story the media refuse to: Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby parts.

Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday night, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) slammed the “pro-abortion news media” as they “suppress” the videos exposing Planned Parenthood. Referencing an MRC Culture story, Sen. Lee argued that the network news shows “have gone dark” in their coverage of the videos released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP).

In a fawning “interview” with Hillary Clinton aired on Thursday that amounted to a campaign rally, liberal talk show host Ellen DeGeneres assured the Democrat she doesn't need to address her e-mail scandal: “I actually don't think you need to. It's just that people keep bringing it up. They have not found a thing.” She soon endorsed Clinton for president: “You are the smartest, most qualified person for this job. If I'm looking for someone who’s qualified – if I want to hire a plumber, I want someone who has snaked the drain before, you know what I’m saying.”

NPR's Jennifer Ludden's liberal bias was clear on Wednesday's All Things Considered, as she covered a congressional hearing on abortion from earlier in the day. The House Judiciary Committee scheduled the hearing in the wake of the Center for Medical Progress's release of hidden camera videos on the sale of organs and tissues from abortion babies. Ludden pointed out how "Planned Parenthood denies any wrongdoing," and asserted that "the videos show no evidence of it."

On Megyn Kelly's Fox News show on Wednesday, Andrew Napolitano sharply criticized the city of Baltimore's agreement to pay $6.4 million to the family of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died in police custody there in April.

The Associated Press and most of the rest of the establishment press are describing the city's payout, which was approved on Thursday, as a "settlement" — an odd and inappropriate term, given that Gray's family had not yet filed a lawsuit, i.e., there was not yet a court case to "settle."

Liberal View co-host Joy Behar admitted she was attracted to some of Donald Trump’s policy prescriptions. Talking to the presidential candidate on Thursday, Behar gushed, “A lot of people, Donald, think that you're still a Democrat and I'm very interested in that part of you, because a lot of what you say I think is correct.” The left-wing host praised, “You want to tax hedge funders.” She added, “I think you have a heart.” Behar wondered, “Are you a Democrat, really, at heart?”

As part of its HighTaxHillary campaign, Americans for Tax Reform has rediscovered video of Hillary Clinton supporting a 25-percent tax on gun sales. She lent her support for the gun tax during a Senate Finance Committee hearing back in 1993, while she was First Lady.

ATR released a story and accompanying video on Sept. 8, but the major media have yet to cover the story in the two days since.

The aftermath of Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos’ expulsion from (and prompt return to) Donald Trump’s Iowa press conference played out exactly as I predicted. Aided and abetted by his mainstream media comrades, Ramos has sought to cast himself as a brave resistor to injustice á la Rosa Parks, and his post-Trump defenses seek to portray him as a tough truth-teller willing to stand up to tyrants. His actions, however, betray the lofty intent of his words.

A few days ago the global warming alarmist comedy act was that rising sea levels would flood NASA launch sites. It would be tough to top that inadvertent humor but the Washington Post science blogger, Rachel Feltman, gives it a good challenge. She warns that melting arctic ice could release a giant deadly virus. If it sounds like cheesy horror movie, you could be right as we shall see but first, take it away Rachel!

Two weeks after offering a mere 21-second news brief on allegations that the Pentagon altered intelligence data on ISIS “to provide a more optimistic account of progress” against the terror group, Thursday’s CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to report on 50 intelligence officials confirming that their analyses were changed.

You know there’s a problem when a former CEO of a major American company says American CEOs are probably closer to the Chinese premier than they are to President Obama.

This morning on CNBC’s Squawk Box, the hosts and guest were discussing the upcoming visit by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to meet with President Obama and a number of American CEOs. They were explaining how there may be mixed messages and difficulties with the premier meeting with the president, and then business executives.

The Los Angeles Times apparently doesn't think "women who were born during botched abortions in the 1970s" are abortion "survivors," as a Wednesday article about two such women featured a title that put the term in scare quotes: "Abortion 'survivors' criticize Planned Parenthood on Capitol Hill." Marcus E. Howard led the item by hyping that "House Republicans on Wednesday fueled an already emotional and partisan debate by hearing testimony" from Gianna Jessen and Melissa Ohden, who "survived failed saline-infusion abortion attempts."

The journalists at Good Morning America made sure to hype the newest nasty comments by Donald Trump, but allowed a scant 32 seconds on the latest Hillary Clinton woes. It wasn’t until the very end of a story on Trump attacking Carly Fiorina’s looks that reporter Jon Karl remembered, “There's also news on the Democratic side.”

Say this for ABC, CBS and NBC: they’re nothing if not tenacious. The networks have been diligent, even relentless, in their efforts to ignore the Planned Parenthood scandal, proving that when they circle the wagons around an ideological comrade, they stay circled.

The networks have maintained their blackout of news about the hidden camera videos from the Center for Medical Progress showing that America’s largest government subsidized abortion mill trades in a robust aftermarket of aborted baby parts – and does so with all the sensitivity and humanity of an automotive chop-shop. Last night, the nets upped their game; ignoring U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearings on the videos.

In his zeal to smear the NYPD, ESPN writer JA Adande made an analogy on Twitter comparing the football players in San Antonio who assaulted a referee on the field to a case of mistaken identity involving the NYPD and a former tennis star named James Blake.

New York Times arts reporter Jennifer Schuessler wrote about an odd controversy in the poetry world -- a white poet, discouraged by multiple rejections, found success when he submitted under a Chinese-sounding pseudonym, even gaining a place in a "Best American Poetry" anthology and causing embarrassment to the editor and rancor among other poets for his "reactionary" use of "yellowface." Schuessler's account assumed the inherent righteousness of the angry liberal, multi-cultural position of hostility toward poet Michael Derrick Hudson.
