During an appearance on FBN's Varney & Co. on Tuesday, MRC's Brent Bozell discussed the media's coverage of Donald Trump's immigration comments as well as the docile campaign media's meek acceptance of Hillary Clinton's moving rope line.
Salon Writer Tantrum: Pro-Choice Advocates Care Most About Family, Pro-Life Movement 'Downright Dangerous'By Spencer Raley | July 7, 2015 | 3:30 PM EDT
Mary Elizabeth Williams of Salon was at it again Monday, writing that if pro-lifers truly cared about mothers and babies, they would push for more abortion! In her article, the liberal extremist argues that the pro-life movement in general doesn’t care about the lives of women, simply because they promote doing everything possible to protect unborn lives.

Liberals love to define the bible the way they want. This time it was the 39th U.S. President Jimmy Carter.
About half way through the interview on Huffington Post Live, Carter was asked his opinion of gay marriage, to which he gave the obligatory, “That’s no problem with me. You know, I think everybody should have the right to get married regardless of their sex.”

Former Washington Post journalist Howard Kurtz on Monday night excoriated Hillary Clinton's attempt to literally rope off the press at a parade over the weekend. Kurtz, now with Fox and appearing on the Kelly File, derided what he saw as Clinton's contempt for reporters: "This is the most embarrassing political image since Mike Dukakis was riding around in a tank and kind of serves as a metaphor for a campaign that literally is trying to lasso reporters." The journalist added that because of the "metaphor alert," "I think it really has resonance." Fox News digital politics director Chris Stirewalt attacked his fellow journalists: "There is something masochistic about the press's relationship with the Clintons, especially with Hillary Clinton."

On Monday evening, both NBC Nightly News and ABC’s World News Tonight touted President Obama claiming success in the fight against ISIS while ignoring criticism of his strategy. On Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt proclaimed: “A warning today from President Obama, who emerged from a Pentagon briefing and called the fight against ISIS a quote, ‘generational struggle,’ saying it will take time to defeat this enemy.”

Coffee prices are falling, but liberal Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has decided to raise its prices anyway. CNBC’s Squawk Box co-host Joe Kernen called Schultz out on July 7, saying Schultz was trying “to pad his profits.”
Kernen argued it was unfair to criticize airlines for failing to pass savings along to consumers when oil prices fell, but not criticize Starbucks for raising its prices even as the cost of coffee dropped.

Is this 2008 all over again? ABC on Tuesday insisted that Bernie Sanders's campaign rallies are like "rock concerts" and that "Bernie-mentum" is sweeping the country. During Barack Obama's first campaign, the network routinely hyped the "rock star" candidate. Cecila Vega insisted that "Bernie Sanders has [Hillary] worried... She may be the Democratic front-runner, but this morning Clinton is feeling the burn." According to the reporter, the socialist senator enjoyed a "massive turnout at a campaign rally overnight in Maine, that at times felt more like a rock concert."

Last night, Lawrence O’Donnell gushed over Bernie Sanders’ authenticity and the consistently large crowds he has acquired in his speeches across the country. The July 6 edition of The Last Word featured a panel discussion which emphasized that the Vermont senator’s socialism isn't that far outside the mainstream.
O’Donnell asked former Vermont governor Howard Dean if Sanders has “managed to educate Vermonters to the essential truth that we’re all socialists now?” He prefaced that question by noting the tendency of Democrats to “run away” from calling themselves liberal. The MSNBC personality then cheered the fact that Sanders openly embraces socialism and “the fact that he is a socialist.”

During an appearance on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show on Monday night, liberal New York magazine writer Frank Rich fantasized over the ways in which lesser-known GOP presidential candidates could make their way onto the first debate stage.

Surprise! Another celeb was on Huff Post Live, sounding off in the liberal echo chamber on gay “marriage.” This time, it was Ryan Reynolds on Monday.
Interviewer Alyona Minkovski asked Reynolds, “What are your thoughts on gay marriage? Obviously you’re not opposed to it.” His response was “No, I’m not a monster. I think it’s fantastic.”

People magazine, like any good liberal media, raves over all things Obama, Hillary and LGBT. So, in July’s edition, there was bound to be a lot of celebratory rainbows.
Indeed, readers did not get further than page 6 before they encountered one. The letter from the editor — entitled “Love in America”—was completely dedicated to Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court’s recent gay marriage ruling. The editor was obviously thrilled for Obergefell, declaring that “wherever you stand on the issue, it was impossible not to feel elated” for him.

From the man who brought you malaise, now an even more depressingly negative view of America . . . On today's Morning Joe, Jimmy Carter declared that America is in "inevitable decline."
But no finger-pointing at President Obama, please: Carter declared that the decline is "not because of any defect or fault on the part of the President of the United States." Cue the Cole Porter: it's just one of those things.

While it may have been surprising that all three broadcast networks covered on Monday evening the deadly violence in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend, what wasn’t surprising was that they looked to blame guns for the violence and advanced the cause of more gun control (as opposed to gang violence or the need for better policing).
