On Wednesday's Hardball, Daily Beast columnist Jonathan Alter insisted that President Obama's executive amnesty would lead to Latinos being squarely in the Democratic column for decades and even revering the president with portraits in the living rooms, much like white Appalachians in years gone by had hung portraits of FDR in theirs.Tonight on Twitter, Alter rehashed that lame and frankly insulting talking point shortly after President Obama's speech.

Wildly spinning a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showing just 38 percent support President Obama's planned executive amnesty while 48 percent oppose it, Huffington Post's Howard Fineman offered that it's possible "some" of those opposed are against it from Obama's left, thinking it doesn't go far enough.

During Wednesday evening's edition of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable network, comedian Lewis Black devoted his “Back in Black” segment to slamming the tradition of Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and a time when stores open early and shoppers arrive before the sun comes up to buy items at huge discounts.

Black claimed that even worse than the rush to get tremendous bargains is the practice of “taxing” stores in malls that stay closed so their employees can spend the time with their families. “That’s the most anti-American thing I’ve ever heard!” Black exclaimed. “It’s like Sharia law for capitalism!”

On Wednesday's AC360, CNN's Dana Bash was hesitant to address President Obama's past remarks on immigration reform, where he repeatedly denied that he couldn't act alone – to the point that she first touted the Democrat's supposed academic credentials. After host Anderson Cooper played five clips of Mr. Obama making this point, Bash replied that "we should also remind people that he's not just the President. He also...was a constitutional professor...so, he speaks...with academic knowledge.

Next time she's looking for work, Ashleigh Banfield might consider public relations for Hamas. Then again, she's already doing it.

In the wake of Tuesday's horrific attack by Palestinians against four men during morning prayer at a synagogue in Jerusalem, Banfield earnestly sought to find someway, anyway to explain how the massacre might be justified.

Although many journalistic outlets have conducted a blackout of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber's comments about duping "stupid" Americans, CNN's Jake Tapper has delivered consistent coverage and on CNN.com offered an elaborate explanation of what Gruber's impolitic comments really mean.

During the Republican Governor's Association conference on Wednesday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd spent more than half of an hour-long panel discussion grilling several GOP governors on illegal immigration and President Obama's upcoming executive order to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. The Republicans pushed back hard against the NBC host.

Some of the nation's most influential newspapers sympathetically broke out the euphemisms for Obama as he prepares for unilateral executive action to "shield" some illegal immigrants from the rule of law, which they call "deportation relief." He's "cheered by reform advocates."

Left-wing website AlterNet declared pets “Public Enemy Number Two,” just days after one of its writers shamed moms as “environmental villains” for having children.

AlterNet, which is known for its kooky posts, has stirred liberal guilt and promoted climate alarmism many times. But many animals lovers would be outraged by the article that went after pets because of their “surprising negative impact” on temperatures and for pushing the world toward “climate catastrophe.”

It would seem that not everyone on the left side of the political spectrum has a tolerant attitude towards Hispanics, if a segment on Wednesday's The Last Word on MSNBC is any indication. Hours before President Obama is expected to take executive action to legalize millions of Latin American illegal immigrants, guest Anita Freeman blamed the "very high Latino population" for California's failure to legalize euthanasia, as they "seem to go with [the] Catholic religion."

In their latest snowstorm coverage, the broadcast networks forgot to mention one detail bringing survivors together: prayer.

During their Nov. 19 evening news shows, ABC, NBC and CBS reported on the story of the Niagara University women’s basketball team stranded on New York’s Interstate 90 after their bus hit a blizzard. While correspondents noted how the team melted snow for water, they didn’t mention the team’s positivity – and prayer – during the ordeal lasting approximately 30 hours.

The debate over Barack Obama's planned executive order on illegal immigration has continued to grow, but CBS is ignoring the President's glaring flip-flop, his repeated claims that he doesn't have the "legal" power to take such action. ABC and NBC have both covered Obama's past admissions, but only briefly. In 2014, NBC allowed 12 seconds and ABC a meager 91 seconds

On Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News — a broadcast that has yet to mention the infamous comments of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber — anchor Brian Williams conceded his profession “might be guilty” of bias in its coverage, but his admission had nothing to do with liberals and conservatives. Instead, Nightly News devoted nearly two minutes (1 minute, 56 seconds) to a study showing media bias in favor of — wait for it — dog stories. “On this one we just might be guilty,” Williams confessed.

On Thursday's NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie framed President Obama's upcoming executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants as him simply keeping his word: "President Obama will address the nation tonight on the hot-button issue of immigration reform, planning to make good on a progress – a promise to sidestep Congress and take executive action."

On Wednesday, the White House announced that President Obama is scheduled to issue an executive action on Thursday night that could potentially prevent up to 5 million illegal immigrants from being deported. While the “big three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) networks have all reported on the president’s immigration proposals, CBS is the only network to not mention that President Obamaa has flip-flopped on having the power to issue such an executive order.
