Instead of the British Broadcasting Corporation, I’m beginning to think BBC stands for the “Barely Believable Crap” channel, after comments were made by its Home Affairs Editor, Mark Easton, comparing radical Islamist/terrorist/hate preacher Anjem Choudary to the likes of Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. They were all seen as "extremist," Easton proclaimed.

Michelangelo Signorile, the radical satellite radio host who told a professing gay man to drink arsenic because he voted for Mitt Romney, is using his post as Editor-at-Large at the Huffington Post to urge Apple boss tim Cook to do to Texas what big businesses, the media and the homosexual Left did to Indiana: smear and boycott them for protecting the First Amendment rights of its clergy.

The headline was “Why Tim Cook Should Threaten to Shut Down Apple Campus Amid Texas Anti-Gay Crusade.”

David Letterman may have grown more liberal over the years, but days before his last show this Wednesday, he aired a cute anti-Obama video imagining how mothers Obama called on Mother’s Day reacted to getting a phone call from the President. It’s just what you’d dream of doing if Obama ever called you.

“There’s three things I tell people that the Russians were afraid of: AIDS, Jewish people and Ronald Reagan.”Question: “In that order?” Reply: “I think Ronald Reagan took the top spot. They thought he would push the button.” One more reason to love Reagan.

The front of Sunday's New York Times will evidently be blessed with "Death Penalty Leaves Boston Unsure of Itself." The paper found the death sentence handed down to convicted Boston Marathon terrorist bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev a distasteful "blot" on Boston's compassionate liberal reputation, which has rendered the finish line "a place of ambivalence," with no end of self-righteous Bostonian handwringing on the matter.

Would Hillary Clinton - or any other Democrat candidate - consent to be interviewed on Fox by Karl Rove?

For years, national media stars have lined up to speak or moderate debates at the fall Clinton Global Initiative meetings in New York. Bill Clinton routinely does a round of sappy TV interviews – unless someone messes up the program with a tough question like Fox’s Chris Wallace, who drew Slick Willie’s wrath in 2006.

Media companies also line up to line the Clinton Foundation’s pockets, leading to another big corporate list of conflicts of interest, according to Politico:

During the Thursday afternoon edition of Your World With Neil Cavuto, the Fox News Channel business host responded to the accusation from Jon Stewart of Comedy Central's The Daily Show that the people at Fox “hate poor people.”

“I think he's very fast on his feet even if he sometimes gives me a few good kicks,” Cavuto said about Stewart. “That's fine. I can take it and take him. What I can't take is this: that we at Fox actually hate the poor. Now, even by Jon Stewart's Fox-bashing comedic standards, that's a little rich and more than a little unfair.”

Former Democratic operative turned journalist George Stephanopoulos was rocked this week by the revelation that he donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. But Stephanopoulos's affinity for the Clintons has never been in doubt. In 1999, the now-ABC anchor declared his "love" for Hillary Clinton and received heartfelt affection in response. On page 428 of his memoir All Too Human, Stephanopoulos recounts Bill Clinton's reelection in 1996. After embracing the then-First Lady, Mrs. Clinton allegedly blurted, "I love you, George Stephanopoulos." The political operative responded, "I love you too."

The Baltimore-based sports apparel company calls the shirt “Band of Ballers.”

The Associated Press knows when something should be on its “Big Story” page...like another celebrity who still thinks Obama is the greatest. AP’s Meksin Fesadu began: “Barack Obama supporter James Taylor doesn't just think the U.S. president is great — he believes Obama is the greatest of all-time.”

"I am just thankful for every day that he's in office. I am so proud that he represents my country and I think he represents me — I think he represents the America that I know."

On Tuesday, Associated Press reporter Martin Crutsinger celebrated the federal government's large April budget surplus, caused by "a flood of tax payments (which) pushed government receipts to an all-time high." He didn't mention that the tax payments were higher largely because of tax increases passed in 2013. It certainly didn't occur because of an improving economy — because it's not meaningfully improving.

Crutsinger also noted that the April 2015 result of $156.7 billion "was the largest surplus since April 2008," without telling us that the previous surplus was achieved despite (better argument: "because of") the Bush 43 tax cuts.

Actress and liberal activist Susan Sarandon is still blaming America’s homeless problem on Ronald Reagan. The actress, probably best known for her role in the 1988 baseball hit movie Bull Durham, was invited on the May 13 edition of PBS’s Tavis Smiley to plug her son’s 2014 documentary, Storied Streets, that is now available on AMC’s streaming service. "I think that the conversation changed around the Reagan era, where everything was your fault."

Sofia Vergara is the Spanish-accented sexpot center of attention on the ABC sitcom Modern Family. She’s also now the center of an unwanted controversy over a “modern family.” She’s fighting with an ex-fiance over two frozen embryos.

Back in 2013, Vergara granted a TV interview to Dr. Oz to discuss her baby-making plans: “I’ve been very concerned about fertility and I wanted to take advantage of science, so I froze my huevos.” She and her fiancé Nick Loeb had no success with a surrogate mother on two embryos, and made two more before the relationship soured.

With at least seven dead and hundreds more injured in Tuesday’s Amtrak crash, many in the nation have paused for a moment to lament and pray for the dead and wounded. The same cannot be said for Philip Bump of the Washington Post, who rushed on Wednesday to note “House Republicans had planned to spend Wednesday marking up a transportation spending bill that included steep cuts to the budget for Amtrak, the federally funded passenger train service.”

Bump explained why these cut-cut-cut Republicans wanted to cut Amtrak: their constituents don’t use it.
