Liberal Fox News analyst Juan Williams wrote for FoxNews.com on Saturday that while white conservatives “are always on defense against charges of hating President Obama because he is black...This week white conservatives can take a break, step out of the dock and make way for white liberals”

Williams was referring to hacked e-mails from a Sony executive writing about Obama’s taste in movies.

Saturday's front-page report on Jeb Bush, "Looking to ’16, Another Bush Stakes Out the Middle Ground," marks the latest New York Times profile to flatter the moderate Republican, at least in comparison to those "hard-line" right-wing conservatives. But such reportorial flattery from the Times would end the day Jeb Bush won the Republican primary, as John McCain found out in 2008.

On Thursday, The New York Times reported Pope Francis was endorsing the thesis of the cartoon All Dogs Go To Heaven. On Friday, they were pressed to run a correction, suggesting the media are eager to promote the notion that the Pope is frustrating conservatives and breaking with longstanding Catholic teaching.

In the original article, Times reporter Rick Gladstone began with an ooze: "Pope Francis has given hope to gays, unmarried couples and advocates of the Big Bang theory. Now, he has endeared himself to dog lovers, animal rights activists and vegans."

NBC’s Jimmy Fallon looked at “how long it takes for Biden to do something weird and steal the spotlight.” The specific event: When he stood beside Barack Obama on December 5 as the President announced Ashton Carter as his nominee for Secretary of Defense. Bret Baier ended his FNC show this past Tuesday with the clip of what the Tonight Show staff timed to the hundredth of a second.

In his "Critic's Notebook" on the front of Thursday's Style section, Washington Post art critic Philip Kennicott descended into another rant suggesting the United States is barely more moral than Islamic State beheaders. Americans are not a good people; we are a horrible people, ruthless and then cluelessly patriotic.

The headline was "Senate report's real question: Who are we? Gauzy view of American goodness can't survive revelations of torture."

At Deadline Hollywood, Anthony D’Alessandro insists “The question remains whether faith-based audiences — the prime crowd for Exodus [Gods and Kings] – will show up in numbers to spur word-of-mouth given some of the pic’s creative liberties.” Or as the Drudge Report tweaks, will there be an exodus from Exodus.

What liberties? Washington Post film critic Stephanie Merry was brutal on Friday

The Esquire blogger argues that anti-Obamacare lawsuits and an effort to weaken Dodd-Frank derivatives regulation are examples of how “the slow, steady and inexorable campaign to render this president a non-person in the long sweep of history continues apace.”

Lena Dunham tries to shame conservative bloggers with their "meat hands" for their callous writing on sexual assault. But Dunham's collapsing story about her own campus rape isn't the only outrage. There's also her hypocrisy over the accused rapist who became president.

Former CBS News journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who publicly clashed with her bosses over opposition to covering Obama administration scandals, told Rush Limbaugh that some at the network seemed to blame her for a hacking attack

Dictionary.com defines "glib" as "readily fluent, often thoughtlessly, superficially, or insincerely so."

Jonathan Gruber's apology at his Tuesday congressional hearing included that word. The word, especially the "superficial" element of its definition, applies to how the establishment press covered the hearing. With only rare exceptions, it excluded any mention of what has accurately been called "the most moving moment of the Gruber hearing": Wyoming Republican Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis's emotional recounting of how her husband died while the status of his coverage under Obamacare was in dispute.

If you were on Capitol Hill midday Thursday you probably saw something unusual; a donkey, two camels and a procession of people dressed in Biblical attire. The religious liberty advocacy group Faith and Action hosted their annual Christmas event in D.C. and N.Y.C. where actors and animals portray the Biblical figures of the original Christmas story. The N.Y.C. nativity scene was reported on by Fox and Friends but the rest of the media overlooked the familiar scene.

Reverend Patrick Mahoney of Faith and Action and president of the Christian Defense Coalition admitted to MRC Culture, that the media in particular were “trying to scrub faith away from the public square” and “compress” displays like this, but the general public always responds positively to their annual event and appreciates the heartwarming reminder at this very commercialized time of the year.

So who's crazy now?  In 2011, the MSM mercilessly mocked Michele Bachmann for saying that if she became president, gas prices would fall to under $2/gallon.  Typical was Time magazine, which called her prediction "fantasy." Time mocked Bachmann's drill, baby, drill policy, sniffing that if implemented, "prices at the pump might drop a whole 3 cents a gallon."

But on CBS This Morning, there was top oil analyst Tom Kloza, saying that by Christmas, gas prices would be in the range of . . . $1.99-2.29 [I saw $2.18 here in Texas yesterday].  So who's crazy now, and where does Bachmann go to get her apology from the MSM that so mercilessly mocked her?

The year is winding down with some good TV news: the amoral biker-gang drama “Sons of Anarchy” has ended its seven-year run on the cable channel FX, after a final season drenched in pointless sex and violence. Jax, the leader of the gang, shot a bunch of his enemies dead and then drove his motorcycle straight into the oncoming grill of a semi truck.

The show wound down into a relentless deathfest. Jax shot his mother dead, because she stabbed his wife in the neck with a barbecue fork. Most of the cast was slaughtered. And for what? It all seemed like a long slog of sensationalism for its own sake.
