The conservative website The Federalist on Wednesday corrected a massive reading comprehension fail by liberal, gun-grabbing celebrity Seth MacFarlane. Federalist senior contributor Daniel Payne noted that the Family Guy creator “tweeted out two charts to seemingly make the case for gun confiscation.” Yet, they prove exactly the opposite of MacFarlane's point.

On Wednesday night, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper spent almost 14 minutes defending himself against Florida attorney general Pam Bondi’s complaints about how he “grilled” her (a word CNN even used) about being an anti-gay politician in the wake of the Orlando mass shooting. Cooper lamely claimed he was “respectful” before, during and after the interview and denied he was showing anger....and in the denial showed all the same disrespect and anger (and disingenousness) he brought to the original interview.

Bondi told WOR radio (as CNN replayed) “I've been getting horrible hatred, e-mails and texts now based on Anderson's story. So that was just sad because he had a real opportunity to bring our country together yesterday and talk about what's right and what's good instead of a story filled with anger.”

Roughly 24 hours after attacking Christianity as contributing to the Orlando terror attack on the gay night club, Wednesday’s CBS Evening News did their due diligence in devoting a full segment to how a slew of Islamic countries punish anyone who is or suspected of being gay with death.

Not only did NBC champion Democratic Senators for filibustering for gun control during Wednesday’s Nightly News, they also praise the late-night comedy shows for helping viewers. But what were the hosts really saying? “They're the funny men and women we turn to when we need to laugh, but there's been little to laugh about in the last few days,” stated host Lester Holt, “And now late-night hosts have once again found themselves straddling the lines between comedians and consolers.

The New York Times despises Donald Trump's use of the issue of Islamic terrorism during his run for president. Patrick Healy and Thomas Kaplan's front-page story accused Trump of "a classic tactic of demagogy" in “Old Political Tactic Is Revived: Exploiting Fear, Not Easing It," while new writer Max Fisher went to amazing lengths to suggest there's some doubt as to the killer's motive in “Trying to Know The Unknowable: Why Attackers Strike.”

During their evening news coverage Wednesday NBC and CBS championed Senate Democrat Chris Murphy’s (Ct.) filibuster for movement on gun control legislation. Reporter Peter Alexander praised Murphy’s actions as, “a filibuster fueled by frustration,” on NBC’s Nightly News. “Democrats commandeering the Senate floor, trying to force a vote to toughen up gun laws,” Alexander continued.

The “All-Star Panel” during FNC’s Special Report always can be counted on to contribute outstanding opinions and Wednesday was no different as they slammed a New York Times editorial blaming not radical Islam but Republicans for Orlando that National Review’s Jonah Goldberg dubbed perhaps “the single dumbest editorial in the history of The New York Times.”

While America’s longest-lasting ideological adversary of the 20th century, Communism, was obviously leftist, most observers find the new main enemy, jihadism, much harder to place on the usual left-right spectrum. Not Joshua Holland, though. In a Wednesday article pegged to last weekend’s mass murder at a gay-oriented nightclub in Orlando, Holland declared that “Islamic terrorism is right-wing terrorism…All conservative religious traditions…want to return to an idealized vision of an earlier, simpler time. When you get down to brass tacks, they’re all right-wingers.”

Holland congratulated himself and his fellow lefties for “reject[ing] the religious supremacy, hostility toward LGBT people, and insistence on traditional gender norms that’s embraced by virtually all conservative people of faith, whether they express it with violence or discrimination or strange laws governing where people pee.”

Those early wake-up calls for NBC foreign correspondent Richard Engel on the other side of the world can lead to refreshing candor.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow interviewed Engel from Instanbul, 4:40 a.m. local time, on her show Monday night about the terrorist massacre in Orlando and breaking news of the murder of a French police officer and his wife by another ISIS-inspired jihadist.

Anderson Cooper was sharply criticized on Wednesday about an interview he did the afternoon before with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. She stated that instead of discussing ways people can help victims of the Sunday massacre in Orlando, the Cable News Network anchor spent most of the time challenging her status as “a champion” for gay people.

The host repeatedly charged that in court, Bondi claimed that same-sex marriage could “impose significant public harm” on citizens of the state. The official responded that she was sworn to defend the state constitution, which she did in that case.

On CNBC's Squawk Box on Wednesday, Dan Rather somehow thought it was wise to offer criticism of the way the media has covered the 2016 presidential campaign so far. The former CBS anchor, whose career was crippled after the MemoGate scandal in 2004, asserted that there's "too much on the horse race, not enough on the substance of the race."

The American transgender community is actively recruiting the next LGBT athlete. Except this time, unlike Michael Sam, they would like said athlete to actually be good.

The New York Times lead editorial Wednesday on the Orlando massacre, “The Threat to Gay Americans,” was notable both for the words it did contain – names of Republicans who the Times repugnantly held responsible for fostering the hatred that led to the mass murder – and for the words it didn’t contain: “Radical Islam.” That’s despite Omar Mateen, the actual mass murderer, calling a local TV reporter and stating “I did it for ISIS. I did it for the Islamic State." Meanwhile, Andrew Rosenthal accuses Trump of fomenting Stalinist genocide, and Jim Rutenberg and Frank Bruni indulge in some bias by omission.

As Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King appeared as a guest on Tuesday's New Day to discuss the Orlando night club terror attack, CNN host Chris Cuomo pressed him over the issue of gun laws and also over whether Republicans should be making a point of specifying that it was a gay club that was targeted when speaking of the attack.

The two also got into a debate over whether political correctness has made it more difficult to head off Islamic terrorism by pressuring people into keeping silent about suspicions toward Muslim acquaintances.

Tuesday night marked the premiere of ABC’s new comedy Uncle Buck. Pretty much the only even remotely interesting part of this very non-funny comedy is that Uncle Buck, instead of being a delinquent ne'er-do-well white guy (John Candy) like in the original movie, is instead a ne'er-do-well black guy (Mike Epps). Until the 55 minute mark of the episode, when something truly awful that I did not know existed, and now cannot unsee, appeared on my screen
