MRC has kept a major spotlight on the Clinton cronyism and donations of George Stephanopoulos, the oh-so-"objective" host of Good Morning America and This Week. Now MRCTV's Dan Joseph has created a song parody to mock how the ABC anchor can get away with all this mangling of media ethics. Enjoy.

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN gave attention to recent surges in violent crime in American cities, including Milwaukee, as it brought aboard Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke as a guest to give his take on why the spike has occurred.
 
Sheriff Clarke, an elected Democrat, began by making a conservative argument against "failed social engineering projects," as he advocated longer prison sentences, before complaining about "slime" being thrown at American police officers by the "political class."
 
After co-host Alisyn Camerota brought up a Justice Department investigation into the Milwaukee police from 2011, Clarke let loose on the Justice Department for making his job more difficult.

Just when you find yourself doubting the legitimacy of capital punishment, a liberal comes along and erodes that doubt.

On his HBO program Sunday night, former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver mocked the efforts of Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts to acquire the drugs needed for the lethal-injection execution of an inmate after the solidly Republican state legislature voted to end capital punishment in Nebraska.

After actor Vince Vaughn declared himself to be an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment in a recent interview with British GQ, only Tuesday’s NBC Today took notice of the celebrity’s conservative stance – and only for a brief 30 seconds. ABC and CBS completely ignored the story. Even ABC’s Good Morning America, usually obsessed with pop culture, skipped the news.

On Tuesday's CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello surprisingly interviewed a man who "transitioned" to being a woman, but reversed the cosmetic process after eight years.

This morning's April factory orders report from the Census Bureau showed yet another seasonally adjusted decline. This time, they fell 0.4 percent, seriously underperforming expectations that they would come in flat.

This naturally brought forth another sighting of the U-word ("unexpectedly"), this time at Reuters. Both Reuters and the Associated Press failed to note how steep the year-over-year declines in orders — and for that matter, shipments — have become:

The liberal website Huffington Post, that once advised readers on how to avoid talking about Obamacare during Thanksgiving dinner, surprisingly confronted a serious problem for the Affordable Care Act recently.

On June 1, HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps and Huffington Posts’ senior national correspondent Jonathan Cohn about the unaffordability of Obamacare. In the segment, "What If The Affordable Care Act Isn't Affordable?" Cohn admitted that "rate increases look higher" for 2016 than in previous years, based on proposals that insurers were required to submit to the government by June 1. Companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico reportedly want to increase their premiums by as much as 50 percent.

“Who wouldn’t want to be part of the tradition of misogyny and homophobia?” – the sarcastic question that Netflix’s new comedy 'Grace and Frankie' poses at the idea of traditional wedding vows. 

Starring Sam Waterston, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and Martin Sheen – all liberals of impeccable credentials – the show focuses on the divorce of two married couples, and the subsequent “marriage” of the two ex-husbands. Yes, you read that correctly.
