Choosing the wrong word, Mark Twain once observed, can mean the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

Sunday night's airing of Killing Jesus -- the three-hour event based on the book of the same name by Fox News Channel anchor Bill O'Reilly and co-writer Martin Dugard -- was watched by more than 3.7 million people, a new record for the National Geographic Channel.

Of course, this isn't the first cable television adaptation of one of O'Reilly's books. Two others -- Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln – were also produced for the cable channel and drew high ratings as well.

The Heritage Foundation's Ryan Anderson defended Indiana's religious freedom law on Monday's All In program on MSNBC, and blasted far-left LGBT activist Dan Savage for likening the new statute to Jim Crow: "It's interesting that Dan says that it's discrimination. It strikes me that all of the businesses that are currently boycotting Indiana are saying that they want to run their businesses in accordance with their values....Why is it the 70-year-old grandmother can't be free to run her business, in accordance with her values?"

All three networks on Tuesday morning continued to pile on Governor Mike Pence and his state's religious freedom law. ABC, NBC and CBS focused almost exclusively on the critics of the law and pushed the idea that the legislation was bigoted. On Good Morning America, Gio Benitez acted as a prosecutor against the law. Talking to Indiana legislators, he demanded, "You're going to directly add into that law that it cannot be used to discriminate against anyone."

If Chris Matthews thought he could trip up and embarrass Russell Moore, the head of the South Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, he was most certainly disappointed.

In an exclusive interview with new Defense Secretary Ashton Carter on Tuesday's NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie grilled the Pentagon chief on the Bowe Bergdahl exchange: "Do you think that the White House made a mistake in wrapping its arms around Bowe Bergdahl and saying, for example, that he served with honor and distinction, when the administration knew there were at least questions about the circumstances of him walking off the base?"

Hear that? It's the sighs of disappointment in Hollywood, mixed with the howls of rage on the sex-obsessed left. It turns out, young adults aren’t nearly as immoral as they were supposed to be by now.

Millennials are often lauded as the left’s great hope for a liberal society. After all, this is the generation that has loved “inclusive” TV hits like Glee and Modern Family; overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns; and been able to spread its ideas through social media far faster than any preceding generation.

But when actually questioned about their beliefs, millennials are neither as cavalier about sex nor as enthusiastic about abortion as the media would have you believe, according to a new study from the nonprofit, nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute.

Actress Kerry Washington got snaps from the media for her pro-LGBT speech after she received GLAAD’s Vanguard Award at the group’s 26th annual ceremony.

“Kerry Washington Rouses in Speech on LGBT Rights” was The Wrap’s headline, while E! News gushed with “Kerry Washington Gives Powerful, Moving Speech at 2015 GLAAD Media Awards” and CNN reported, “Kerry Washington brings cheering crowd to its feet in GLAAD speech.”

More often than not, it seems as though Univision cannot complete the day’s newscast without mention of at least one immigration-related story. This persistent fixation on the heated topic of immigration blatantly ignores the fact that though the Latino community is affected by it, it is not defined by it.

In view of the upcoming 2016 presidential elections, once again immigration is being portrayed as the sole determinant of a candidate’s ability to woo the Latino voter.

So Harry Reid knew he was lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes for ten years when he made the claim in 2012 from the lawsuit-free zone known as the floor of the U.S. Senate, but didn't care.

That's what one must conclude from Reid's response to CNN's Dana Bash about that statement. Asked on the network's New Day program if he regrets what he said, Reid responded: "Romney didn't win, did he?" Rather than question Reid's outrageously cynical "end justifies the means" mentality, Bash's edited interview moved on to another topic.

From the morning of March 27 through March 30 evening the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks spent only 10 minutes and 15 seconds to the admission by Clinton’s own attorney that her State Department e-mails were wiped from the server that had been subpoenaed by Congress, but they devoted a whopping 35 minutes and 1 seconds to coverage of the Indiana religious freedom law.

Jeffrey Toobin likened social conservative Christian business owners who refuse to participate in same-sex "marriages" to advocates of racial segregation during a Monday special on CNN: "This is...precisely parallel to the people in the '50s and '60s, who thought there was a religious obligation to keep the races separate – and they really believed that." Toobin continued by underlining that "we made a decision, as a society, that...we are not going to allow that...even if you actually believe it. And the question now is, are we going to do the same thing for homosexuality?"

New on March 30: On MSNBC, after Ted Cruz announced his presidential bid, Jonathan Alter declared “the Ted Cruz message” is “extremism is good.”

The liberal journalists at MSNBC and the co-creator of The Daily Show were taken aback by the perceived anti-Israel, anti-Jewish comments of the newly crowned host. Cable anchor Tamron Hall on Tuesday declared that comedian Trevor Noah is "already generating some controversy."

Appearing on Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs Tonight on Monday to discuss Indiana's new religious freedom law, Democratic Strategist Doug Schoen revealed that President Clinton only signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1993 because of “electoral practicality.”
