Discussing rumors of a possible Hillary Clinton campaign shakeup in an attempt to right the ship after a close race in Iowa and what looks to be like a Sanders blowout in New Hampshire, CNN’s Anderson Cooper on his eponymous program tonight made a humorous comparison to how struggling cable TV executives handle programs that just aren’t cutting it in the ratings.

If the eventual Republican presidential nominee takes the advice of The Washington Monthly’s D.R. Tucker, he’ll choose Michigan governor Rick Snyder as his running mate, not in spite of what happened to Flint’s water supply, but because of it.

“Snyder never gave a damn about the residents of Flint, and still doesn’t,” claimed Tucker in a Saturday post. “The Snyder vision—the Republican vision—is that if you don’t have money, you’re not really a citizen…Think about what animates the right today: Contempt for the mainstream media. Contempt for racial minorities. Contempt for government. Contempt for those outside of the right-wing tribe. Snyder would appeal to all of the right’s darkest impulses.”

In the latest example of double standards in the world of liberal media bias, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt used his one-on-one interview on Monday with Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio to boast of the “broad criticism of that Saturday debate performance” and calls that he’s “MarcoRobot” despite expressing concern to Hillary Clinton on January 29 about any critiques leveled her way.

While players on the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos National Football League teams took a break in the middle of Super Bowl 50, the performers who took the stage in the center of the field at Levi's Stadium in the San Francisco Bay Area in Santa Clara, California, and their songs "subtly" promoted left-wing causes such as gay love and Black Lives Matter.

The singer whose full name is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter made “a powerful statement on both racism and police brutality.” And as if that wasn't liberal enough, the British rock band Coldplay put on what was later called “a 12-minute tribute to LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) love.”

Looks like it might be time for Harvard to mandate remedial geography instruction for its students.

Following a grueling week of campaign coverage in Iowa, along with taking part in a friend's wedding, National Public Radio reporter Sam Sanders was told by his editors to take a day off -- and then get back to work by covering a Donald Trump rally in New Hampshire.

New on February 8: Chris Jansing, senior White House correspondent for NBC News, saying on MSNBC that it’s “crazy” for young women to not support Hillary Clinton as the first female president.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews is enjoying beating the dead horse that is Marco Rubio's repetitive answers on Saturday night's debate. But in doing so, Matthews himself is continually trotting out the same talking points about "short-term memory loss" and sounding like a character from the 1982 movie Blade Runner.

While all three network morning shows touted Hillary Clinton’s campaign attacking Bernie Sanders supporters for “sexism,” only NBC’s Today mentioned prominent Clinton surrogate and “feminist icon” Gloria Steinem employing sexist language to attack young women supporting Sanders.

A testy Chris Christie reminded George Stephanopoulos of his political “operative” past on Monday, hitting the Good Morning America co-host for bringing up the New Jersey governor’s low poll ratings. The former aide to Bill Clinton quizzed, “You have invested so much time and money in New Hampshire, though...still in sixth place, if you can't win there, where can you win?”

Chris Matthews was on Morning Joe Monday to share his precious insight into the New Hampshire primary coming up on Tuesday. As part of his segment he was asked about how he would historically categorize Marco Rubio’s seemingly embarrassing debate performance the Saturday prior. “I put it with Blade Runner.” Matthews said.

During Super Bowl 50, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) wasn’t about to let biology get in the way of their propaganda.

While live-tweeting its reactions to Super Bowl commercials, NARAL threw science out the window to bemoan “humanizing” a fully-developed fetus.

Debate night started a bit rough for ABC. Ben Carson missed his cue, and was left awkwardly waiting in the wings. After his name was called, Trump chose to wait offstage next to Carson. Then, moderator David Muir’s announcement of John Kasich’s name was drowned out by applause, leaving only four candidates on stage when moderator Martha Raddatz announced “ladies and gentlemen, the Republican candidates.”

But, ironically enough, the edition of World News Tonight directly before the debate had hyped the preparation that went into that very portion of the night.

Note to NARAL: It’s bad when even the liberal media stop seeing eye-to-eye with you on abortion.

During their Monday broadcast morning news shows, ABC, CBS and NBC reviewed the Super Bowl 50 commercials from the night before. While a pro-choice group erupted over a Doritos “Ultrasound” ad that “humanized fetuses,” the networks heralded it as a “favorite” and online stories found it “hilarious.”

The politically correct, pearl-clutching, metrosexual hot-take machine went full supernova in the aftermath of Sunday’s Super Bowl game as Peyton Manning, deluged with the inevitable questions about whether or not he was going to retire after winning the game, responded with a to-do list that pretty much any normal, red-blooded American male would endorse.

When CBS News assigned Gayle King, a donor, supporter and friend of the Obama family, to interview the President and his wife before the Super Bowl, the network guaranteed one of the softest interviews in the history of this administration. Asking not one serious question on Sunday, the journalist instead highlighted her favorite photo of the President and his wife. King also brought up dance moves, relationship issues and Super Bowl predictions.
