Only among liberals is it deemed newsworthy that spending unsolicited time in police custody doesn't resemble a weekend at Disney.

Speaking with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow last night, NBC reporter Rehema Ellis could barely contain her disgust that juveniles arrested in Baltimore on criminal charges aren't being treated with "kid gloves." After all, they're just "kids", right?

CNN's Chris Cuomo warned a protester in Baltimore about a possible police overreaction on Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360. Cuomo walked up to a line of demonstrators who were protesting the death of Freddie Gray, and underlined that the police would go after them: "You got to know: walking toward the cops in the middle of the street – they're going to come at you." When one of the protesters replied that they were going home, the journalist retorted, "Just be careful, because you know how they are."

Journalists at CBS and ABC on Thursday gently, gingerly interviewed the Democratic mayor of Baltimore. The two networks either ignored or downplayed a gaffe made by Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King cautiously questioned the woman, whose city has been the site of violent looting and rioting. King vaguely wondered, "Mayor, it's been a rough week for you personally... If you had any do-overs, what would it be?"

On Wednesday night, Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore went to great lengths to promote the idea that calling rioters in Baltimore thugs was just a socially acceptable way of using the “n-word.” The Nightly Show comedian began is commentary by playing several edited clips of different people referring to the Baltimore rioters as thugs, including President Obama, which Wilmore took great offense to.

If Rush Limbaugh told his audience that the sun rose in the east today, it seems that PunditFact, an arm of Politifact, would find a way to determine that he wasn't telling the truth.

That's pretty much what you have to conclude from the web site's laughable evaluation of Limbaugh's true assertion that "The Federalist reports only 15 percent of the money donated to the Clinton Family Foundation went to actual charitable causes." So its beef isn't really with Limbaugh anyway, but the cynical evaluators at the web site knew that they would catch more eyeballs by going after Rush.

On Thursday, all three network morning shows noted independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders entering the 2016 presidential race as a Democrat. However, NBC's Today left out any mention of the self-described socialist's radical left-wing views.

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.
