Earlier today, Geoffrey Dickens at NewsBusters noted how the Big Three morning network news shows on NBC, ABC, and CBS failed to cover President Barack Obama's denial that the Internal Revenue Service ever went after Tea Party and other conservative groups in his appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Specifically Obama said that "it turned out no ... the truth of the matter is there was not some big conspiracy there ... the real scandal around the I.R.S. right now is that it has been so poorly funded."

Following the lead of the Associated Press, whose Josh Lederman completely ignored Obama load of IRS-related horse manure, the same crowd which spent years screaming about how "Bush Lied" about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq — he didn't lie, period; even the left has to agree, thanks to the New York Times, that it's no longer arguable — has remained notoriously silent about Obama's claim.

What you know you want to see, but didn’t want to spend two hours to catch: Ann Coulter’s scenes in Wednesday night’s SyFy channel debut of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! She’s the Vice President serving with the President played by Mark Cuban. A tour de force.

It’s been a little over two months since Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz sat down with Bloomberg Politics co-host Mark Halperin in what became known as one of the most cringe-worthy interviews of Halperin’s career.  During the interview, Halperin audaciously asked Cruz his favorite Cuban dish, music, and even commented on the fact that his last name “Cruz” should be enough for Hispanic appeal.

New York Times reporter Jackie Calmes managed to write a 1,500-word story on David Daleiden, who runs the pro-life group that conducted damning undercover interviews with Planned Parenthood executives about harvesting baby organs, without once mentioning the actual contents of the vide.Calmes warned: "Democrats said they were counting on Republicans to overreach with their attacks -- inciting a backlash from women, younger voters and political independents who support Planned Parenthood -- and then retreat, as has happened before."

On Wednesday night, major broadcast networks CBS and NBC showed no interest in shedding light on the findings of new Quinnipiac poll that found Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s honest and trustworthy ratings are continuing to fall and she trails three possible GOP opponents in three battleground states. While the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News focused exclusively on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, ABC’s World News Tonight made time to report on both Trump and Clinton.

After all these years, Chris Matthews still hasn't lost that lovin' feeling. The MSNBC host spent a total of two minutes and 12 seconds on Wednesday night hitting Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) for a line comparing Donald Trump to Barack Obama. "Look how he's lived his life. He's done everything right," Matthews began, going on to explain how Obama is "perfect" and "immaculate."

The New York Times editorial board has been called in to conduct damage control after the newest development in Planned Parenthood’s scandal concerning the haggling over and selling of organs from aborted babies. Over the past week, the Center for Medical Progress has released two videos from undercover investigations they’ve conducted with top personnel within the nation’s leading abortion provider. This has led to increased scrutiny of their practices, and calls for defunding since they receive approximately half a billion dollars in taxpayer money every year.

Whether it was due to sheer panic or simple irony, during Wednesday's edition of New Day -- the early-morning program on the Cable News Network -- co-hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota expressed great concern regarding Hillary Clinton's front-runner status in the early primary states of Iowa, Colorado and Virginia, according to a new survey conducted by Quinnipiac University.

“Hot off the presses,” Camerota began the segment discussing a poll that revealed “some very interesting findings,” including results that indicate “Hillary Clinton facing major challenges against her Republican opponents in some very key primary states.”

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's New Day on CNN, Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte disputed anchor Chris Cuomo's assertion that "there have been more deportations under the Obama administration than ever,"  as the Virginia Republican charged that the administration has inflated its deportation numbers by counting illegals caught at the border, in contrast with the Bush administration which did not count those numbers as deportations. Rep. Goodlatte began his criticism of the Obama record:

Liberal NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio recently called for a regulatory attack on ride-sharing company Uber. This set off actor Ashton Kutcher who criticized the mayor’s proposals on Twitter and Facebook calling this an example of “corrupt shortsighted politics” “destroying innovation.”

The taxpayer-funded abortion giant has “patriarchy” to thank for exposing its dealings, according to CNN’s Sally Kohn.

On Twitter Wednesday, the CNN political commentator and Daily Beast writer blamed the recent videos showing Planned Parenthood executives trafficking aborted babies’ parts on the “patriarchy” and “white supremacy.” She claimed the videos had to be “edited” because “facts alone not on their side [sic].”

The Planned Parenthood sting videos are "house of horrors stuff" and yet the liberal media outlets barely reported the first one and all but ignored the second, Media Research Center founder and For America chairman Brent Bozell told Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney today on his eponymous Varney & Co. program.

ABC's Nightline, a once serious news show, has ignored the scandal involving Planned Parenthood allegedly profiting from selling body parts of aborted babies. However, the same program has eagerly covered such irrelevant topics as "cat poo coffee" and the Bachlorette being "unapologetic about her sexuality." On July 17, Juju Chang opened the show with this breaking news: "You might be surprised where the world's most expensive coffee come from. If we told you it was a delicacy people pay hundred for, would you sip on some cat poo coffee? Inside the exotic new business."

As of Wednesday morning, NPR's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the second undercover video of a Planned Parenthood executive revealing how the organization varies its abortion procedures in order to preserve the organs of unborn babies for medical research. Instead, Tuesday's All Things Considered spotlighted a March 2014 incident where the adult son of a pro-life activist vandalized an abortionist's office in rural Montana.

During a live press conference in the 12:00 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday about the Chattanooga shooting, CNN reporter Aaron Cooper asked FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold: “There's been reports that there were some personal or privately owned weapons used in responding to the shooter....Did anybody hit anyone else? Was there any friendly fire incident?”
