An organization that kills unborn babies and picks apart their limbs in a dish with tweezers still saves lives, according to its president. As the media heavily covered speeches from First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey delivered at the White House’s The United State of Women Summit this week, they lost focus on another big name speaker: Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. During the event, Richards not only talked abortion but also agreed that her taxpayer-funded organization “absolutely” saves lives.

CBS News, in an anti-Second Amendment story warning about how easy it is to get dangerous weapons, broke federal law with an undercover sting. That’s the claim from a gun store in Alexandria, Virginia. The Washington Free Beacon on Friday reported that SpecDive Tactical “has filed a report with the Virginia State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives over concerns the purchase was unlawful.”

The Washington Post’s sensitivity toward Hillary Clinton – and their liberal-Democratic belief that the women’s vote will put her over the top – came together on the front page Friday with a whole story devoted to a T-shirt vendor on the trail that sells a T-shirt that says “Trump That B*tch.” [Asterisk is mine.]
Obviously, Post reporter Jenna Johnson and her editors in the politics section thinks this represents a larger hatred of the Clintons, and of women. The Post had no comment on Wonkette T-shirts that show Trump being beheaded by Hillary or a punk-band T-shirt of Trump blowing his own brains out.

New York Times reporter Jennifer Steinhauer gloated a little too obviously over the sight of GOP senators avoiding talking about Trump in Thursday’s “In G.O.P., Many Shades of Sentiment on Trump – ‘Never,’ ‘No Comment’ and a Fast Getaway.” Steinhauer dwelled lovingly on the issue, devoting no less than five categories of Republican responses to Trump. One can hardly imagine the Times making such a concentrated effort to personally embarrass Democratic allies of Bill Clinton during the years of his scandal-stocked presidency.

Talk show host Howard Stern may be socially liberal, but he’s a staunch defender of the Second Amendment, something that liberals in the media won’t be pleased with. Discussing the Orlando attack on his show, Wednesday, Stern bemoaned, “I’m so upset about Orlando and what went down, but I can’t believe these people who come out afterwards and their answer to Orlando is to take away guns from the public.”

In the course of presenting what is apparently one story in a series of several on a "Divided America," David Bauder at the Associated Press portrayed two Americans with largely different news consumption habits. Though the theme of Bauder's Thursday morning report was about how Americans are "retreat(ing) into tribes of like-minded people who get news filtered through particular world views," the two people he presented "don't rely exclusively on partisan media," and go elsewhere "to hear opposing viewpoints." This essentially contradicted his attempted primary point, which is that Americans are supposedly, as his story's headline reads, "Constructing our own intellectual ghettos."

President Barack Obama was in Orlando, Florida Thursday to pay his respects to victims of Sunday’s terrorist attack and push for more gun control in the process. And the liberal news networks were happy to aide with his agenda on their evening news programs. “It has become a familiar ritual of a current national tragedy,” lamented NBC’s Lester Holt starting off Nightly News, “The president of the United States traveling to embrace survivors and grieving family members after an act of mass violence.”

In the most recent episode of Chelsea on Netflix, “Ellen Page & Inspiring Role Models,” Chelsea Handler’s third grade teacher, Mrs. Schectman, and actress Florence Henderson were on the show because Chelsea fondly remembers their positive influence on her childhood. But the warm and uplifting message of two women who have made an impact on her life turned into a phony leftist anti-gun rant when actress and LGBT activist Ellen Page joined in. In the world of Chelsea Handler, guns are the problem – not the terrorists using them to kill Americans.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews stumbled upon a thing called reason on Thursday night as he expressed stiff reservations over how Bernie Sanders and the far left argue that health care should be made right alongside, say, freedom of speech.

Once again, it’s Azteca America that takes the cake for the most consistently one-sided, over-the-top anti-Trump news coverage on U.S. Spanish-language television.

You are not worthy!!!
That pretty much sums up the brutal assessment of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro by Dylan Matthews of Vox. He was listing the pros and cons of various possible running mates for Hillary Clinton. Most of them seemed weighted on the pro side but when it came to Castro, the cons screamed off the page in a most cruel way that overwhelmed whatever pros he has according to Matthews:

To apparently demonstrate how a law abiding citizen can purchase a firearm, CBS went to a gun store in Alexandria Virginia during Thursday’s Evening News. “A CBS news producer went to a gun store in Alexandria, just outside of Washington, DC,” reported Kris van Cleave in a whispered tone as if it was a secret. And what they discovered was quite shocking to behold:

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on the Fox Business Network (FBN) early Thursday evening to lambaste the latest “garbage” cover by the tabloid New York Daily News and blast CNN’s Anderson Cooper for his work of “gotcha journalism” hounding Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi on Tuesday.

On Thursday morning in Shanghai, Walt Disney Company Chairman Bob Iger and “a phalanx of Chinese Communist Party officials” cut the ribbon on the $5.5 billion Shanghai Disney Resort, the company's first theme park in mainland China.
The celebration included fireworks over the resort's castle -- Disney's "largest and most technologically advanced castle in the world” -- a dancing Mickey Mouse, dignitaries and messages of support from two presidents. "This is one of the most exciting and important moments in the history of the Walt Disney Company," Iger proclaimed.
However, according to an article by Patrick Brzeski of the Hollywood Reporter website, the Disney executive “drew gasps of surprise from the mostly Chinese crowd as he began reading a letter from U.S. President Barack Obama,” who has taken a far more lenient stand on gay rights and same-sex marriage than China's government.

On Thursday's Legal View, CNN's Ashleigh Banfield bemoaned how "nine out of ten people on terror watch lists, who want to buy a gun, get to buy a gun after passing a federal background check — nine out of ten!" Banfield questioned former Rep. Mike Rogers about this statistic: "I can't believe I actually have to state that being on a terror watch list does not put you in the category of the other bad guys who we won't sell weapons to. How is this happening?"
