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!"

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. At the top of the show, co-host Savannah Guthrie wondered: “Is there something to hide? And what does it mean for the Clinton campaign?”

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 has fiercely defended the abortion provider Planned Parenthood ever since undercover videos revealing disturbing scenes of organization staffers discussing selling the organs of aborted babies. 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.

In a heated yet entertaining battle of the minds, the Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly faced off on Wednesday night against Fusion/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos for a seven-minute-plus bout over the proposed Kate’s Law, illegal immigration, and Ramos’ decidedly liberal tilt toward advocacy that had O’Reilly telling Ramos that “you’re not a newsman anymore.”

On the episode “Gender” of The Carmichael Show, main character Jerrod Carmichael is paired up with a kid through the Big Brother program who confesses to him that he is gay. Jerrod is freaked out at first by the responsibility of guiding a teen who is coming out, so he consults with his parents because “the world's a tough, judgmental place, and you two are the toughest, most judgmental people I know.”

After talking with his family, Jerrod feels confident that he can handle it. But that’s when the boy drops a bomb – he isn’t gay (that's so passé!), he’s transgender (all the rage on TV right now!)

RT, a media outlet funded by the Russian government, desperately needed a fact checker for its Wednesday article about the launch of a Russian Soyuz rocket to the International Space Station earlier in the day. The unsigned item reported that "the 500th Soyuz rocket has successfully lifted off from the Gagarin's Start launchpad marking a historic milestone for Baikonur Cosmodrome." In reality, it was the 500th overall launch from the launch site in Kazakhstan, which has hosted several different types of rockets

On the heels of President Obama and Senate Democrats achieving the minimum threshold on Wednesday to preserve the Iran nuclear deal, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC applauded during their evening newscasts the “unstoppable” “done deal” that had Secretary of State John Kerry taking “a victory lap.”

In his standup-comedy days, Steve Martin did a joke about imposing the death penalty for parking violations. Michael Tomasky suggests that the House Benghazi committee has a similarly disproportionate penalty in mind for Hillary Clinton over Emailgate: wrecking her presidential campaign.

Tomasky acknowledged in a Wednesday column that Hillary “screwed up this email business,” but asserted that the committee “isn’t even pretending to be about the Benghazi attacks anymore. It’s a taxpayer-funded get Clinton operation, and it’s now all about finding a smoking gun in these emails.”

With the battle over the Iran deal heating up, Hillary Clinton’s e-mail troubles growing more severe, and more footage of Planned Parenthood’s callous harvesting of the organs of dead children coming to light, you would think the liberal print media would have their hands full. Rather than dwell on these stories, however, James Hohmann of the Washington Post decided that a much more important question demands our attention: is Ted Cruz eligible to run president?
