Waldman says the Fox audience believes the world “is going [to] hell,” and that the channel’s frequent airing of sexually oriented stories and images helps to reinforce that belief. "Fox is a channel for the conservative id, where you can have your darkest thoughts and worst fears nurtured and validated. And of course, there's nothing the id likes better than looking at half-naked girls."

Controversial  MIT professor Jonathan Gruber - in the headlines for repeated videotaped admissions of lying to the “stupid” American people in writing the ACA law has been tied to the hotly controversial issue of amnesty for illegal immigrants. An amnesty that would get around the prohibitions of the ACA that deny Obamacare to illegal immigrants by simply and directly removing the status of “undocumented” from “undocumented immigrants” - thereby making them eligible for Obamacare.

Take-no-prisoners radio host Mark Levin is congenitally incapable of mincing words, and his visceral reaction to top Obamacare consultant Jonathan Gruber's jaw-dropping admission of the law's inherent deceit is wholly in character.

How much longer, Levin asks, are Americans willing to tolerate a thuggish government "growing more tyrannical every day"?

Kyle Drennen noted that EPA chief Gina McCarthy appeared on MSNBC on Thursday so Andrea Mitchell could ask how she was going to deal with "climate deniers" as Team Obama pushes for rigid limits on carbon emissions. At least Mitchell read a statement from GOP Sen. Jim Inhofe calling the Obama deal with China a "non-binding charade."

On Thursday morning's New Day on CNN, host Chris Cuomo opened with a wiffle ball, mocking Senator Inhofe's 2012 interview with a Christian radio station (acting like a DNC-Think Progress publicist).

During her Fox Business Network (FBN) show on Friday afternoon, Melissa Francis told viewers that she “was silenced” by executives at CNBC when worked there after she criticized ObamaCare on-air and told viewers that the “math of ObamaCare simply didn’t work.”

Speaking in regards to what ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber said about relying on the “stupidity” of voter and the need for lying to get the law passed, Francis opined that while: “It is shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of ObamaCare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way, just the basic math and when I did that, I was silenced.”

During Thursday evening's edition of The Colbert Report, Comedy Central's faux conservative turned his attention to the latest problems confronting the Affordable Care Act, including comments made by Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist Jonathan Gruber that ObamaCare only passed due to a “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter.”

Of course, Stephen Colbert was only joking when he said that “Professor Gruber just delivered a death blow to ObamaCare,” which the host claimed he never liked because it “put a bureaucrat between you and your doctor,” and “the next thing you know, the doctor and the bureaucrat are hanging out all the time. … Thanks, Obama.”

Early Friday morning, published an exclusive article that unearthed a secret email listserv maintained by two of Hillary Clinton’s possible 2016 presidential campaign advisers that, among other things, allowed them to express their desires to “smite Republicans mafia-style” and “punish those voters.”

With these emails now public, the question will be: Will any of ABC’s newscasts or Sunday morning political talk show This Week even mention this story? If a secret email listerv were discovered involving political operatives for a or future 2016 GOP Presidential candidates, let alone a Republican elected official, it’s a safe bet the liberal media would have multiple helpings of coverage.

Is [it] TIME to ban the word “feminism”? 

In her Nov. 12 piece unveiling TIME’s “fourth annual word banishment poll,” correspondent Katy Steinmetz asked, “Which Word Should Be Banned in 2015?” The poll listed words including “bae,” “bossy,” “kale,” “om nom nom nom” – and, most noted by the media, “feminism.” Forgetting abou tbanning “bossy,” the feminist media went berserk, calling the move “sexist,” “unfathomable” and a “silly proposal.”

Appearing on TBS's Conan Thursday night, NBC's Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd downplayed the big Republican wave in the midterm election: "...they didn't win because people said, 'We want to hire the Republicans.' Essentially this was an election of 'Well, alright, we're firing the Democrats'....I think the leadership knows that they have to prove that they can govern, that they're just not the anti-Obama party."

CNN's Carol Costello surprisingly acted as a supporter of the Keystone XL pipeline on Friday's CNN Newsroom, as she interviewed left-wing Senator Bernie Sanders. The Vermont politician decried the project, since climate change is "already causing devastating problems in our country," and that it would "transport 800,000 barrels a day of some of the dirtiest oil on Earth."

The blackout of Jonathan Gruber and his ObamaCare deception continued on ABC and NBC, Friday. CBS allowed a scant 13 seconds to the highly embarrassing videos of the health care law architect's mockery of the "stupidity of the American voter." CBS This Morning anchor Charlie Rose relegated the latest on Gruber to the "Eye Opener" segment, a 90 second round-up of what's happening in the world.

First Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, compared net neutrality to “Obamacare for the Internet,” and now outspoken businessman Mark Cuban has tweeted that President Barack Obama’s proposed policy is something “straight out of Ayn Rand.”

Cuban, owner of the NBA's Dallas Maverick and numerous entertainment outlets, tweeted a series of comments about net neutrality on November 13. (Tweets are below.) The tweets centered on comparing net neutrality to the extreme overreaches of government authority depicted by pro-capitalist author and philosopher Ayn Rand in such novels as “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead.”

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame Thursday night and received an introduction from rock star Bruce Springsteen, who proclaimed: "To paraphrase a friend of mine, if Walter Cronkite and Jon Stewart had had a baby, and if due to the ongoing controversy over same-sex marriage they had to abandon that baby on the New Jersey Turnpike, and it grew up to be a news anchor, its name would be Brian Douglas Williams."

When it comes to political prognosticating, Chuck Todd in 2014 erred repeatedly as he imagined Democratic victories and Republican missteps with conservative legislation. On August 1, the Meet the Press host appeared on the Daily Rundown and speculated, "If November comes and goes and Democrats hold the Senate and break even in the House, I think we’re going to look back at the month of July as the month Republicans lost their shot at the Senate."

Dana Bash is not one to put aside her biases in the name of journalism. As Matthew Balan reported just last week, the CNN Capitol Hill correspondent appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 to blame Senate Republicans for the “dysfunction” in the federal government. This week proved no different. She snarkily tweeted on GOP sexism, noting the Senate leadership walked by and it was "half a dozen white men."
