Never one to shy from controversy, Rush Limbaugh pointed out what many others consider impolitic to state aloud -- that the racist chant led by University of Oklahoma frat brothers and captured on a video that went viral could be mistaken for a rap tune.

University officials quickly expelled the students, shuttered their fraternity and continue their investigation while the incident has triggered wide debate as much about free speech as racism.

If Hardball's Chris Matthews cares so much about 47 Republican senators supposedly violating the Logan Act of 1799, why did he bring on federal law-breaker Sandy Berger on his program to speak as an authority on the matter?

On Thursday's New Day on CNN, left-wing Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal wildly accused fellow guest Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police Officer Association of being a racist. Chapelle-Nadal asserted that she, as well as the far-left protesters she supports, were "trying to...ensure that racism does not continue by people like you." Roorda replied, "Are you calling me a racist, Senator?" The Democratic politician replied, "Yes, absolutely!"

NBC News chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman announced her abrupt departure from the network on Thursday afternoon, stating that her violation of Ebola protocol in October 2014 has “contributed to my decision that now is the time to return to academic medicine.” After “becoming part of the story upon my return to the U.S.” from covering the Ebola epidemic in Liberia, Snyderman revealed that “it is now time for me to return to my roots” with “a faculty position at a major U.S. medical school.”

On her MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell kept pushing the blatant falsehood that the open letter by Senate Republicans to Iran regarding nuclear negotiations was an "unprecedented" move: "Let's talk about this letter now, because this is unprecedented." Mitchell's guest, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd, launched into a rant about how politically damaging the letter was for Republicans.

Right on the heels of the New York Times piece on Pope Francis being “strikingly tone-deaf toward the sensitivities and needs of women” in the Catholic Church, The Daily Beast ran a story on Monday that wrongfully suggests Pope Francis has permitted a priest to speak out about the supposed confession of former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro.

Before Moro was killed by a terrorist group called the Red Brigades in 1978, a priest by the name of Antonio Mennini allegedly heard Moro’s confession, then was said to have performed the sacrament of extreme unction – similar to the last rites given to danger of dying.

In a writeup which shows that the wire service obviously hasn't studied the hateful examples of liberal-left hate collected by the Twitter curators at Twitchy.com, a Thursday afternoon Associated Press writeup claims that conservative "say" they're happy (with an implication that they don't really mean it), while liberals "show it" (supposedly meaning that they're genuine).

The reporter assigned to this pathetic piece of pablum somehow deemed worthy of "Big Story" status is Seth Borenstein, whose normal beat is twisting his reportage to convince America in light of mountains of contrary evidence and 18 years of flat worldwide temperatures that global warming-climate change-climate disruption is real. Excerpts follow the jump (bolds are mine):

Well, an issue doesn’t get much clearer than this; according to pro-life group Students for Life of America, the Senate is debating “Taxpayer Funded Abortion vs. Victims of Sex Trafficking.” 

The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, a bipartisan-supported anti-human trafficking bill authored by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), faced backlash on March 10 from Democrats because of a provision prohibiting abortion funding. Picking sides, the media claimed the “anti-abortion” language was a “snag” the GOP “sneaked” in. In response, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, challenged the media and argued that the issue is sex trafficking victims being sacrificed by the abortion absolutists.

On Thursday, rapper Method Man spoke to MSNBC’s Tamron Hall about the shooting of two Ferguson police officers, and argued that the DOJ report “kind of played into this and these things shouldn't be happening, but you reap what you sow in a sense.”

Less than five hours after its release, the government's news that retail sales fell by 0.6 percent in February — compared to a 0.3 percent increase expected by economists and analysts — is buried way down (about 6-8 screens, depending on your computer) on the home page of Bloomberg News, where the focus is supposed to be on developments in business and the economy.

Instead, the web site's main top-of-page story on its home page at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time was about how "you" are getting richer. No, really:

After two police officers in Ferguson, Mo. were shot by protesters in the early hours March 12 following the announced resignation of Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson, the media has been complicit in continuing to spread false information on the Michael Brown case. 

Ferguson protesters’ “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” chant was officially debunked as false by the DOJ March 5, yet the networks have continued used it several times without noting, as CNN did, that it’s not true.

Now that Hillary Clinton has finally revealed that she broke e-mail protocol for the sake of convenience, CNN can now direct the nation’s fury toward the evil Republicans who sent a letter to the world’s foremost sponsor of terrorism, explaining that President Obama’s deal is as constitutionally strong as Iran’s sincerity in cultivating nuclear energy.

Enter CNN’s David Gergen, who, despite working for the Nixon, Ford, and Reagan Administrations, announced on Tuesday night's Erin Burnett OutFront that he “can't remember an instance in which such a letter has been sent. This much of an interference has been launched from the halls of Congress with the President in the midst of negotiations.”

Time magazine decided to tweak the most devoted Hillary Clinton fans again (remember the "provocative" high heel cover?), but this time it looks like they're playing Satanic games with the Democratic frontrunner:

Time knows very well what they're doing when the juxtapose people under their iconic M. In 2013, they posted a piece titled "33 Time Magazine Covers That Appeared To Give People Horns."

Climate skeptics or realists are so often ignored or taken out of context by the news media it’s no longer shocking, but that doesn’t make it any less egregious.

On March 6, HBO’s Vice focused its entire program on melting ice in Antarctica. Marc Morano was quoted in the episode, but says his interview was mishandled. Vice is the same media group that embedded a reporter with ISIS and sponsored basketball player Dennis Rodman’s February 2013 trip to North Korea, according to The Washington Post.
