Liberals who habitually decry all the money in politics may want to turn their attention to Dallas today. That’s where a secretive meeting of millionaires and billionaires is convening and planning how to deploy $100 million over the next decade to influence American politics.

Closed to the press and public, the exclusive, invitation-only event includes the famous and not-so-famous, just so long as an attendee has at least $25,000 a year to give to causes “philanthropic” and political.

A new poll from Harvard University’s Institute of Politics has some alarming findings about the trustworthiness of the American media. Among adults aged 18-29, the poll found that just 12 percent believe the media "do the right thing."

How did Howard Dean go from vivid voice of the New Left to political hack defending Hillary Clinton at all costs? Joe Scarborough called Dean on it today, telling Howard he had become the "New England version of James Carville."

Dean, on today's Morning Joe, dismissed the latest Washington Post story suggesting possible financial improprieties at the Clinton Foundation as "a breathless piece of hot air" and, incredibly, Dean said he'd advise Hillary not to address the rising tide of questions.

It may be the “fourth quarter” of the Obama presidency, but the flower-petal patrol around First Lady Michelle Obama isn’t slowing down. Wednesday’s USA Today carried a flashy photo montage titled “SPRING FORWARD WITH MICHELLE.”

“On the heels of a stunning turn by the first lady at the celeb-laden White House Correspondents’ Dinner, USA Today’s Andrea Mandell takes a look at the effortlessly chic spring style of Michelle Obama.”

Late Wednesday on CNN Tonight, CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill verbally attacked police officers once again as he decried the notion that there are only a few “bad apples” in law enforcement and that the police instead serve as “an occupying force in the hood.” Two nights earlier he hailed the violence on the streets of Baltimore as “uprisings” against “police terrorism” instead of riots.

While covering the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall hosted GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis and Josh Schiller, one of the lawyers responsible for overturning voter-approved homosexual marriage bans in California and Virginia.

Hall sat silently as Schiller compared his gay plaintiffs as "targeted minorities" that somehow resemble Japanese-Americans rounded up and placed in internment camps during World War II. That happened.

"Hillary Clinton recently said all her grandparents were immigrants, but records show only one came to America as a child.  Sadly, none of Hillary’s grandparents lived to see what a magnificent liar she has become." -- Jodi Miller, NewsBusted.

In the Wednesday edition of bias by omission, five of the English and Spanish network evening newscasts again refused to report on a troubling sign for the U.S. economy while all six omitted any mention of a new development in the IRS scandal. After completely ignoring the story all together Wednesday morning, the CBS Evening News stepped up to mention that the U.S. economy has screeched to a grinding halt with a measly 0.2 percent growth in gross domestic product (GDP) for the first quarter of 2015.

Add the following to the "you will be made to care" stories Erick Erickson at RedState began to recognize several years ago.

Those who think that legalizing same-sex "marriage" won't affect them should have received a wake-up call on Tuesday during arguments at the Supreme Court over inventing a constitutional right for two people of the same sex to have such an arrangement. Most of them didn't get it, because, with only one exception I could find, the establishment press covering the proceedings perfectly understood the gravity of the discussion and its implications — and refused to report it, because doing so would give away the Obama administration's, and the left's, ultimate game plan.

Fortune magazine would have you know that the Baltimore Orioles monetary hit from the unrest in Baltimore is "likely to be relative chump change considering the big money it make over the entire season, including from television."

Well, this is awkward — or rather, it would be if the press cared about the federally-driven tyranny which is in the process of capturing the nation's public and private K-12 schools.

Common Core's proponents have insisted and still insist that "it was and will remain a state-led effort" (italics is theirs). Yet when faced with the "problem" of too many parents opting out of its intrusive testing regime — something they are supposedly free to do without penalty or reprisal — guess who steps in with threats and smears? You guessed it: Federal Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

At the top of Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, correspondent Ron Allen reported from the streets of Baltimore with the crowd protesting the death of Freddie Gray and gushed that the crowd was “so loudly and eloquently” chanting “no justice, no peace” like those had done in Ferguson, Missouri a few months ago.

Univision’s long-standing campaign to otherize and disqualify Hispanic conservatives and those who dissent with the network’s immigration agenda has only increased in vitriol and intensity since the presidential campaign announcements of Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio.

The network, whose executive chairman is Lincoln Bedroom-occupying Clintonista Haim Saban and whose news division is run by Isaac “Our Opponents Are Like Nazis” Lee, is lately focusing its rage on Rubio.

Alex Wagner and her two left-wing panelists on the Wednesday edition of her MSNBC program – Salon's Brittney Cooper and The Nation's Ari Berman – likened the use of the word "thug" to describe the rioters and looters in Baltimore, Maryland on Monday to a notorious racial slur against blacks. Wagner played up how "there are folks, like CNN's Erin Burnett, who don't understand why it's offensive; and why some people are saying the 'T' word is the new 'N' word."

This year’s Pulitzer Prizes didn’t seem to be rewarding an obvious liberal tilt, but Baptist Press is taking exception to how the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier won for a series on domestic violence, and alluded heavily to Bible-thumpers being wife-thumpers:
