This young man might have a bright future in comedy, providing he doesn't mind that people laugh only when he's not kidding.

You might remember Cenk Uygur -- pronounced "Jenk U-Gur" -- hosting an evening show on MSNBC for several months in 2011 after the network booted Keith Olbermann within weeks of the Tucson massacre, when liberals like Olbermann blamed Sarah Palin for creating a sulfuric "climate of hate" that led to the rampage. Turns out Olbermann wasn't entirely wrong, he was simply looking in the wrong direction.

Ever since former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani stated on Thursday that “I do not believe that the president loves America,” the people in the “mainstream media” have produced more than 8,000 articles on the comment -- which was made at a private Manhattan dinner for 60 or so political donors -- in just a few days.

That led Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee, to release a statement on Tuesday in which he noted: “Coverage has been fueled by reporters grasping for new angles or asking any Republican in range of a microphone to respond to his comments and other unrelated questions.”

After careful consideration, Mike Barnicle has figured out why Giuliani questioned President Obama’s patriotism. In an article for the Daily Beast, Barnicle says Giuliani questioned Obama’s love for the nation, not for the reasons he clearly outlined, but because he is a “nut boy” full of “bitterness and a contempt that borders on hate” who engaged in an “off-the-cliff assault” against the President as part of a “loud, please notice me, clown act.”

And he might be racist. Barnicle went to former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs for the usual race-baiting.

Jonathan Chait, Paul Waldman, and Amanda Marcotte each discuss how the Wisconsin governor and probable presidential candidate has responded to recent questions about issues including evolution, Obama’s religious beliefs, and Obama’s patriotism, as well as how his answers might play with the “paranoid” Republican base that thinks, in Waldman’s words, that “Obama is The Other, an alien presence occupying an office he doesn't deserve.”

Even the Wall Street Journal news pages can get caught in the politically correct labeling games that mar so much of today's reporting -- especially when it comes to Islam. Case in point: Friday's story about Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, complete with big headline and large photo, occupying the whole top third of the back page of the front section. The article explored Western governments’ reluctance to fully back Al Sisi's call for military action against Islamic State's terrorists in Libya. According to the article, Western diplomats object to Al Sisi's "crackdown at home on moderate Islamists."

Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican blasted conservatives on Monday's CNN Tonight for criticizing actress Patricia Arquette for her politicized acceptance speech at the Oscars. Breznican actually went after Don Lemon for stating that "winners and presenters bring their often-liberal-leaning political and social issues to the ceremony." Breznican asserted: "I can't really think of anything last night that was actually liberal."

The torture and persecution of Christians by Islamic terrorists is terribly boring for the networks. ABC's Good Morning America offered a scant 33 seconds to the kidnapping on Monday of 90 Christians from Syria by ISIS. Despite a four hour run-time, NBC's Today didn't even cover the story. What's important for the hosts of GMA? On Tuesday, they deluged viewers with almost 21 minutes of coverage devoted to the new season of Dancing With the Stars.

The public-relations time bomb that is Keith Olbermann went off this week, pushing ESPN to suspend the left-wing sports journalist from the air.

Stay classy, Keith.

On Monday, Katie Couric, former CBS Evening News anchor and current Yahoo Global News anchor, sat down with David Axelrod, former senior advisor to President Obama, to discuss his memoir Believer: My Forty Years in Politics.

New on February 23: A rant from MSNBC’s Chris Matthews upset by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s charge that President Obama doesn’t love America: “It really does no good at all, except score political points with those who hate.”

CNN is clearly desperate for higher ratings when they go out of their way to appear balanced and accurate.

The network's website, CNN.com, ran an astonishing headline last night -- "Dems block DHS funding bill." Yes, you read that correctly. It was caught by Jason Howerton, a reporter at TheBlaze, who posted a story titled "The Headline for the Lead Story on CNN Website Leaves Some Wondering if 'Hell Has Frozen Over.'

Apparently the celebrity suck-ups at Access Hollywood and E! are not fans of those few celebrities who actually think for themselves. After Patricia Arquette’s speech at the Academy Awards condemning the supposed “wage gap” and inequality of women in the U.S., she was met with a standing ovation from the crowd and fawning support from the liberal media for her on-stage comments. But not everyone in Hollywood agreed with Arquette's sentiments. 

Fox News contributor and conservative actress Stacey Dash, of “Clueless” fame, refuted Arquette’s take, saying on Fox & Friends, Feb. 23, “I was appalled, I could not believe it. First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history.” She continued, "In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights."

Continuing to hype a possible "shutdown" of the Homeland Security Department if Congress did not approve funding by Friday, Tuesday's network morning shows all seized on White House talking points that any delay in funding would threaten national security and placed blame for the budget impasse squarely on Republicans.

In an article chock full of "could" and computer model projections, the San Jose Mercury News speculates in its headline, "Climate change may flatten Santa Cruz's famed surfing waves." Key word is "may" since it also may not. However, this doesn't prevent reporter James Urton from engaging in extreme conjecture about surf conditions in a century while computer model projections are often unable to correctly project the weather for the next day.

In case he's been too subtle in the past, an unhinged Chris Matthews made himself clear on Monday: He thinks the Republicans "hate" Barack Obama. The Hardball anchor fumed over insufficient outrage at Rudy Giuliani's assertion that Obama doesn't "love America." In the span of one show, he hit Republicans as "haters" seven times.
