The headline at Sandhya Somashekhar's Washington Post column on Pamela Geller, whose Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest was the target of a failed terrorist attack, acts as if that attack is her fault: "Event organizer offers no apology after thwarted attack in Texas."

Somashekhar's work reeks of contempt for Geller and her efforts, even going beyond the media malfeasance cited in the Brent Bozell-Tim Graham column posted at NewsBusters Tuesday evening.

The pro-abortion crowd is getting desperate. With public opinion slowly shifting away from their favor and the  number of abortion mills closing, it seems their days are numbered. According to Salon,com there is only one thing left to do about the pro-life movement: "more people, media and academics in public discourse, need to talk about this as terrorism — because that’s what it is."

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley sat down with CBS This Morning’s Norah O’Donnell for an exclusive interview that aired on Wednesday and the CBS anchor made sure to push the liberal line about whether or not the GOP has a “problem with women voters?”

Timer ready? Go!: foreign countries and rich people gave millions to the Clinton Foundation and/or paid Bill big bucks to give speeches. In return, Hillary's State Department pushed policies favorable to them.  And, stop!  I timed that at exactly eleven seconds.

On today's Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle made the absurd claim that the shady dealings described in Clinton Cash, officially out today, won't hurt Hillary much because they're too hard for Americans to understand.  "I challenge you to explain in one or two minutes to, you know, anyone, what is going on here with the Clintons and all this foundation money."

Even The Washington Post is picking up juicy gossip from The Daily Caller. A long-running lawsuit against Ed Schultz from NBC producer Michael Queen revealed e-mails from Schultz “in which he’s less than complimentary about his now-MSNBC brother, Chris Matthews.”

During the opening monologue of Tuesday’s Late Show on CBS, David Letterman channeled his inner Chris Matthews in professing his admiration for President Barack Obama following his appearance on Monday’s program by declaring that “you can feel the electricity in the room” whenever he’s on the program.

After Tuesday’s CBS This Morning fretted about the “distractions” facing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, CBS and NBC continued parroting the Clinton campaign’s rhetoric on Tuesday and touted their “counteroffensive” that was launched to thwart “the litany of distractions” ranging from the Clinton Foundation to Benghazi.

Liberals claim to be the world's boldest defenders of freedom of expression, which is, of course, nonsense. Here's another canard: Liberals also claim to be the most offended against anyone "blaming the victim." What liberals possess is an ideological system which identifies favored groups as victims, and supports squelching the free speech of anyone challenging them.

One of those favored groups are Muslims. Over the weekend, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) held the Muhammad cartoon contest in Dallas, obviously a provocative event. But it wasn't meant to result in two Islamic extremists showing up with assault rifles, and shot to death by police after they opened fire.

When it came time to cover the news from Tuesday that Mike Huckabee had announced his entry into the 2016 Republican presidential field, ABC and NBC largely yawned at this story by devoting a combined 48 seconds of airtime to Huckabee on their Tuesday evening newscasts.

It appears that someone might need to schedule an intervention with the Associated Press's economics writers.

In his dispatch published a half-hour after the government's March release on international trade at 8:30 this morning, the wire service's Martin Crutsinger quoted a normally upbeat economist who was singing the blues about the result's effect on previously reported first-quarter economic growth. Now, he said, the economy "undoubtedly contracted slightly in the first quarter" by an estimated 0.3 percent. But about an hour later, the AP's Christopher Rugaber ignored this assessment — and that of many others — in his writeup covering the 10 a.m. release of the Institute for Supply Management's Non-Manufacuring Index. Don't these guys talk to each other?

In a shockingly candid moment betraying his sexist view of Republican female politicians, Hardball host Chris Matthews tonight mused that Carly Fiorina may lob "scurrilous" attacks at Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton while banking on her gender to shield her from scrutiny. He also envisioned Republican suburban housewives sneaking out of the house to vote for Hillary without "telling hubby."

Seldom does a liberal mention the prophetic document released 50 years ago known as the Moynihan Report. Rarer still is the liberal who praises it.

Officially titled The Negro Family: The Case for National Action, the report was largely written by a bureaucrat in the Department of Labor, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a future American ambassador to India and the United Nations and US Senator for New York from the mid-70s to 2000.

For all the good their Ivy League degrees did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton—when you consider the smoking ruin that is their foreign policy record—you'd think John Heilemann would have the good sense not to make an Ancient Eight sheepskin the sine qua non for a presidential candidate.

But with his MSM elitism on full display,, on today's With All Due Respect Heilemann had the chutzpah to suggest that Mike Huckabee doesn't clear the Commander-in-Chief bar because he lacks a degree from Harvard's Kennedy School or Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School.  Huck has simply picked up some foreign policy talking points from Fox News, huffed Heilemann.

The intersection of multimillion-dollar donations to the Clinton Foundation and the business interests in Colombia of one of the Foundation’s top donors, Frank Giustra, has become the subject of fresh reporting on Univision’s principal national evening newscast, while Spanish-language competitors Telemundo and MundoFox continue to be silent about the matter.

Following up on the network’s previous coverage of the financial and ethical controversies surrounding the Clinton Foundation, Noticiero Univision anchor Jorge Ramos introduced a report by correspondent Lourdes Meluzá that focused specifically on the Latin American angle of the story.

In an effort to shame protesters who believe true marriage is between one man and one woman, Jessica Williams of Comedy Central's The Daily Show mingled with people she believes are on the “Wrong Side of History” while pretending to be crying since this might be her last chance to say goodbye to the “Hate Class of 2015.”

The segment was introduced by outgoing host Jon Stewart.
