During an NBC News Special Report on Wednesday, Nightly News anchor Brian Williams could barely contain his excitement over President Obama announcing the reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba: "A momentous day, especially for those Americans old enough to remember the Cold War. The curtain came down between Cuba and the United States in January of 1961 and in just a moment diplomatic relations, at least the first steps to which, will be reestablished....It is a day of momentous change, fast-moving change..."

A class action suit filed by families of Sandy Hook shooting victims could “go nowhere” because of a 2005 law protecting gun makers, but that crucial point was ignored in most network stories about the lawsuit.

A lawyer representing the families of ten victims of the horrible school shooting that took place in Newtown, Conn., two years ago announced a lawsuit on December 15 against Bushmaster. Bushmaster was the company that produced a gun Adam Lanza used in the shooting.

On Wednesday morning, American Alan Gross was released from a five year imprisonment in Cuba in exchange for the release of 3 Cuban spies convicted in the United States. In response to the release, Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) spoke out strongly against the prisoner swap. Despite the bipartisan disapproval surrounding President Obama’s actions, during her NewsNation program MSNBC host Tamron Hall repeatedly brought on liberal guests to slam Republican Senator Marco Rubio’s comments without acknowledging the Democratic opposition to the prisoner exchange.

Appearing on Wednesday's NBC Today, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd spun former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announcing that he was "exploring" the possibility of running for president in 2016 as a boost for the candidacy of Hillary Clinton: "By the way, the big Jeb Bush announcement helps Hillary because it'll scare Democrats and rally them around Hillary even more."

“What the average person is seeing right now,” declares the American Prospect’s Paul Waldman, “is an entire party mobilizing to defend the use of torture, whether they will call it by that name or not. And that looks to be having an effect on public opinion.”

On Tuesday, former Republican Governor of Florida Jeb Bush announced that he is considering running for president in 2016 and that night liberal Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne predictably had a field day with the announcement. Appearing on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell on Tuesday night, Dionne proclaimed “the irony here is, it`s almost a delicious irony, is that Jeb Bush, if he runs, maybe a change agent in the Republican Party.”

Although 2014 was an election year, venomous attacks weren’t just in the campaign commercials. Most recently, anti-business attacks came from protesters across the country in the form of #ShutItDown. And there were many other anti-business views presented by the liberal news media, TV programming and left-wing extremists this year.

Attacks on businesses, executives and certain products were abundant this year. They included a propagandist “McMocumentary” that portrayed McDonald’s as heartless, which depicted Ronald McDonald driving over his own sister after she demanded a raise. Industries including agriculture, coal and retail were also under fire.

MRC Business compiled a list of the 10 worst left-wing and media attacks on business from the past year:

In their latest softball interview with People magazine, President Obama and Michelle Obama explained all the racism they’ve experienced and the “impact of stereotypes.” No one at People will fact-check anything the Obamas claim about their personal indignities...including Mrs. Obama's strange tale of being treated like an employee during her weird Target run as First Lady.

Joe Scarborough has a warning for conservatives: going after Jeb Bush will make him more likely to run for president.

According to Scarborough, speaking on today's Morning JoeJeb is "his mother's son," "kind of "cranky" and "rough around the edges." If conservatives think they will drive Jeb out of the race by attacking him, "they've got him played exactly backwards." To the contrary, conservative attacks will make Jeb more likely to run "to prove them wrong."

On Tuesday, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announced that he was exploring the possibility of running for president in 2016 and predictably CBS Late Show host David Letterman had a field day with the Republican’s announcement. During his Tuesday evening show, the CBS comedian announced the “questions Jeb Bush is asking himself while actively exploring a run for president.” Unsurprisingly, Letterman’s 10 “questions” were merely liberal attacks on Bush such as “Am I sure I won’t embarrass the family?” and “If I run who will rig the election in Florida?”
