CNN's Wolf Blitzer trumpeted the resumption of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba on his Wednesday program. He asked colleague Andres Oppenheimer, "When you think about what's gone on...over these past 54 years, it's almost breathtaking to see what's happened over the past six months or so. Don't you agree?"

Katie Couric conducted a condescending interview with Ted Cruz, asking the Republican if he has "any empathy" for immigrants as he opposes Barack Obama. The presidential candidate also zinged the liberal journalist, reminding her that it was Hillary Clinton who first started the birther campaign.

On Wednesday, the hosts of The Cycle on MSNBC mocked Republican alternatives to ObamaCare. When Toure read a quote from Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) saying he wants to replace the ACA with a more patient-centric plan, Josh Barro of The New York Times wondered, “what does that mean,” and added that “it can mean whatever the listener wants it to mean.” 

Later in the discussion, Toure and Kystal Ball sarcastically threw out words to dismiss Republican arguments against ObamaCare. Ball shouted, “patient centric!...cheaper!...flexible!” Taking a cue from his fellow host, Toure cried, “yay!...freedom!...no more tyranny!” Barro rejected other conservative ideas like selling insurance across state lines and tort reform as insignificant solutions.

On Wednesday's New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo again carried water for the left's social agenda as he interviewed Republican Congressman Steve King. When Rep. King contended that "no one who voted to ratify that Fourteenth Amendment gave...a thought" to the Supreme Court writing "same-sex marriage rights into that," Cuomo retorted that "you could say the same thing about race and anti-miscegenation laws." He later wondered, "How does this [decision] hurt you that it's fueling this outrage among conservatives and Christians?"

Keeping people poor and unable to buy new cars, new homes or much of anything sure is nifty for the environment.

The New York Times sure thinks so. The Grey Lady (new name, the Green Lady) warned of an environmental “tsunami” approaching Cuba as relations normalize with the United States. In a tweet July 1, NYT Science claimed that the “embargo and socialism helped protect Cuba's environment,” but that this was about to change.

MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts took special time out of his news broadcast Tuesday afternoon to give Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards free rein to promote her abortion conglomerate and slam the Texas legislature for their efforts to increase the health standards of abortion clinics across the state.

Happy Independence Day, or, as the left might call it this year, “Original Sin Saturday.” July 4th is when we celebrate the birth of The United States. But, whereas you commemorate the inception of what Lincoln called “the last best hope of earth,” liberals lament that flawed people had the audacity to create a flawed nation. Then, that flawed nation had the bad taste to prosper!

It’s that left-wing understanding of America that’s behind the push to erase or blur our history. The purge of the Confederate flag is currently the noisiest, but by no means the only, prong of the attack from activists and academics and the media who love them.

On Tuesday’s Charlie Rose show the host and his panel were not shy with the superlatives as they celebrated Barack Obama’s “best week.”

On the June 30 edition of America, Jorge Ramos and Ted Cruz engaged in a testy back and forth over the Texas senator’s views on gay marriage. Ramos asked Cruz: “But aren’t you discriminating? Are you putting gays and the LGBT community as second class citizen[s]?” Cruz replied by citing his belief that “following the Constitution isn’t discriminating against anyone.” 

Toward the end of the segment, Ramos continued to pester the Republican senator on the issue, wondering why Cruz “would be discriminating” if gay people are born that way. Cruz hit back at Ramos and the media in general with a fiery response: “Look, we did this interview to talk about my new book, A Time For Truth. And one of the things I’m amazed at, is the media, with all respect, is obsessed with sex. It’s the only thing you want to talk about.”

According to liberal actor and anti-vaccine activist Jim Carrey, mandating vaccines for children in order to prevent deadly infectious diseases is fascism.

In a June 30 twitter tirade, Carrey attacked California Gov. Jerry Brown as a “corporate fascist” for signing SB--277 into law. The bill will eliminate individual religious vaccine exemptions. The recent Disneyland Measles outbreak provided some of the momentum for the bill, but it still faced strong opposition from anti-vaccination alarmists who claim they are dangerous to children and can cause autism.

Third Eye Blind’s singer songwriter Stephan Jenkins found out this week what happens when you get drunk with a bunch of political reporters in Washington, D.C.

The Daily Beast reported July 1 that the journalists were at an album-release party for Dopamine, "for the bar food and the hard liquor." Rather than being a discussion on the 90s rock band’s latest music, the drunk group debated politics and Jenkins insulted conservatives, libertarians, Republicans and George W. Bush, presidential candidate Marco Rubio and others.

Perhaps Conan O'Brien and his writers should be a little less sloppy. On Monday, the comedian mocked Jeb Bush for his recent attack on the Confederate flag, describing it as a new opinion. Except, it isn't at all.

In an exclusive interview with newly announced Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie aired on Wednesday’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer used attacks from left-wing detractors to grill the New Jersey governor: “For all your talk about compromise, though, you have a mixed bag of reaction in this state. You know, I drove into your event today and I drove past a pretty hefty group of protesters. I think a lot of them were teachers, and they were holding up signs that said ‘Liar’ and ‘Bully.’”

If there's one thing the Supreme Court accomplished last Friday (besides unleashing cultural chaos on America), it was ending the liberal media's charade. Whatever scrap of journalistic impartiality existed flew out the courtroom window Friday when the press decided these five justices not only invented a right to same-sex marriage but to censorship too.

Less than a week after the Court trampled the Constitution, one of the biggest stories of the ruling is the industry tasked with relaying it -- the mainstream press.

Though both Jonathan Chait and Amanda Marcotte approve of same-sex marriage, they differed on Monday in their assessment of the case against it. Chait, of New York magazine, claimed that anti-gay-marriage arguments have been pitiful and consequently were doomed from the get-go. He declared that “preventing gay people from marrying each other serves no coherent purpose. Allowing them to marry harms nobody.”

Meanwhile, Marcotte argued in a Talking Points Memo column that same-sex marriage helps to “redefine…marriage as an institution of love instead of oppression,” and that the anti-gay-marriage forces are clinging to the idea that marriage is “about dutiful procreation and female submission.”
