As a parent, one of the most heart wrenching things you can go through in life is the loss of a child, and no less traumatizing for the parent is when this loss is by suicide. However, there are some in the media that feel no compunction in using a situation like this to take political shots at a person if he holds different views politically, especially if the parent is a politician. This callousness was exemplified recently by Indy Week reporter Jane Porter.

The April 27 issue of People magazine includes two goopy mentions of Hillary Clinton. On the “Passages” page, the headline is “Hillary Clinton: It’s On!” The caption under Hillary’s picture read: “Clinton, 67, would be America’s first woman president.”

They quoted the first tweet: “Everyday Americans need a chamipon, and I want to be that champion. –H”. They quoted superfans: “’I didn’t know in my lifetime a woman president would be so possible,’ marveled Carol Conklin-Spillane, 56, a high school principal with a cameo in Clinton’s video.”

On Friday's NBC Nightly News, Peter Alexander hinted that the Republican Party's internal battles over conservative principles caused its losses in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. Alexander asked former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, "How are you going to help the party overcome the ideological problems that, sort of, torpedoed it in 2008 and 2012?"

Hillary Clinton is not a weatherman, but she knows, or at least believes, that the wind is blowing in favor of liberalism, according to The Atlantic’s Beinart.

“I watched Hillary Clinton’s presidential announcement video alongside the one she issued in 2007, and the speech she gave declaring her senate candidacy in New York in 2000,” wrote Beinart in a Monday post. “The upshot: America, as seen by Hillary and the people advising her, is a lot further left than it was a decade or two ago.”

As of Friday morning, ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover Hillary Clinton's false claim that all four of her grandparents emigrated to the United States. In reality, only one – Hugh Rodham, Sr. – was born abroad in England. By contrast, all three main cable news channels – CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC – covered Mrs. Clinton's tall tale about her family between Wednesday evening and Thursday evening.

On his Thursday night show, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly observed that Hillary Clinton was not very well liked by the liberal base of the Democratic Party or the media: "I'm not sure that liberal Americans really like Hillary Clinton, alright? And I know that even though most of the liberal national press wants her to win because they hate Republicans, they don't much like her either. Am I wrong?"

It wasn’t just children who were running fevers after the recent measles outbreak at Disneyland. California parents' and lawmakers’ temperatures were also rising over the subject of vaccination legislation.

On April 16, CBS This Morning reported that vaccination opponents lashed out at California State Senator Richard Pan, a Democrat, for sponsoring SB–277; a bill which would eliminate individual religious vaccine exemptions. Pan, who is also a pediatrician, and his staff confirmed to CBS that vaccination opponents sent him threatening emails. Someone on Facebook even made a Holocaust comparison.

Rand Paul has started his run for President in 2016, challenging the Democrats false “war on women” mantra that followed the GOP during the 2012 election.

At the Susan B. Anthony List Summit April 16, Paul called out the media for not questioning Clinton and other Democrats on their abortion views, like they do with GOP candidates. In particular, he called out the media for not reporting on Hillary Clinton’s financial ties with countries with anti-women policies.

Rachel Maddow on Thursday earned a rare interview with Harry Reid, offering the Senate Minority Leader softball questions on the need for more women in Congress. Yet, the same woman who, in the past, has railed against "McCarthyism," failed to challenge the high profile Democrat on his baseless, guilty-until-proven-innocent smear against Mitt Romney. In 2012, with zero evidence, Reid accused the presidential candidate of not paying taxes and demanded that Romney debunk the accusation.

Appearing on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, National Organization for Women (NOW) President Terry O’Neill ripped critics of Hillary Clinton from the 1990s to the present for leveling “silly” attacks on the Democratic presidential candidate as she’s looking to “bring another sea change to our politics.”

In a Wednesday interview with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – aired in full on Thursday morning – NBC's Today co-host Matt Lauer grilled the potential 2016 contender on the year-old Bridgegate controversy: "...we could be talking during a week where indictments could be handed down in what has now become known as Bridgegate....How much, in real terms, has Bridgegate tarnished you Governor?"

NPR Morning Edition anchor Steve Inskeep interviewed presidential candidate Marco Rubio for Tuesday’s program,and like Jake Tapper on his CNN show Tuesday, threw hardballs at Rubio for being in the wrong side of the polls on gay marriage. (Recent polls are showing about 60 percent in favor, 35 percent opposed).

But Inskeep demonstrated a liberal swagger by suggesting social conservatives no longer had a leg to stand on:

For Americans just learning of feminist comic Sarah Silverman, start with this: she’s not very smart. On Equal Pay Day, April 14, she issued an apology on Salon.com for lying in an equal-pay anecdote about a comedy club. Where were the liberal media on this embarrassing gaffe?

She claimed she was only paid ten dollars for a comedy set while her friend Todd Barry received $60. This was in a pre-recorded video, not in an off-the-cuff live interview:

Howard Dean can't handle the truth.  Rather than discussing the implications of Hillary Clinton kicking off her campaign by handpicking the "everyday Americans" she spoke with at her first event in Iowa, Dean dissed the Daily Mail, the source of the story.

On today's Morning Joethe volatile former Vermont governor scoffed "it's the Daily Mail. Why would you believe this?" Why, Howard? Well, for starters, the Mail quotes one of the participants by name and at length about the vetting process he underwent prior to being ushered into Hillary's presence. And if the story were inaccurate, don't you think Hillary's minions would be screaming bloody murder and trotting the attendees to refute the claims?  Crickets, anyone?
