Amazon and Apple made a promise to purge their websites of any materials with Confederate flags in order to shun the ‘racism’ that inheres in the image. Well, however true or false this may be, it appears that neither company bothered to follow through completely on their respective promises, leaving online some of their best-selling items that show the Confederate flag.

Gawker is certainly attracting the gawkers today. The media outlet suggested Bristol Palin abort her unborn baby in the name of “choice” – dismissing Palin’s actual choice for life. 

In response to Bristol Palin announcing her second pregnancy, Gawker’s Allie Jones wrote a piece entitled, “Bristol Palin Makes Great Argument for Abortion in Baby Announcement.” Jones translated Palin’s blog about “trying my hardest to keep my chin up” into “extreme dread” and bashed her inability to recognize “choice.”

After the first broadcast network special reports on Friday morning about the Supreme Court’s decision to approve gay marriage, they returned hours later to gush after President Obama’s remarks how “eloquently” he spoke and pronounce him to be “the America of tomorrow” as an “angry” Antonin Scalia comes to grips with the news that “his side” of “the culture battle” “has lost.” ABC News correspondent Terry Moran hyped after the President’s speech how “Scalia is angry again” by having “cast scorn” on the majority ruling in his dissenting opinion.

For years, New York Times movie critic Manohla Dargis has ruined the summer movie season from her self-righteous, overly liberal movie review perch at the New York Times, and her pan of the raunchy, race-saturated comedy Ted 2 solemnly, self-righteously instructs her readership on what is funny and what is not: "It all depends on context, which is why some pokes in the eye are funny and others aren’t. And maybe this movie might have been funny (or at least tolerably wince-worthy) before dead black bodies again became an emblem of our national trauma."

The left routinely ridicules "slippery slope" arguments from sensible people who recognize that when you establish a dangerous principle or precedent in one area, the fallout will spread to others. The long since sadly vindicated prolife argument made 40 years ago warning that legalizing abortion would lead to wider acceptance of euthanasia is one such example.

Most advocates for same-sex "marriage" have (at least in public) consistently argued that their attempts to legalize it would not in any way, shape or form open up the possiblity of legalizing polygamy. Well, the ink isn't even dry on today's Supreme Court ruling imposing the legal recognizion of same-sex "marriages" in all 50 states, and, lo and behold, we have Fredrik deBoer at Politico Magazine telling us that "It’s Time to Legalize Polygamy."

Perez Hilton, popular foul-mothed celebrity commentator, has an acting gig – Danny Tanner – otherwise known as the father from Full House. Thankfully, it won’t be on a revived version of the TV show, but a musical, set for an August premiere in Toronto.

The plot will follow Tanner as he “loses his super power of solving any problem with his sensible Dad Speeches (complete with soft piano accompaniment). Follow Danny's wacky and hilarious descent into madness as he slowly turns from wholesome Danny Tanner to foul-mouthed and dark Bob Saget.” (Saget’s stand-up comedy is infamously not family friendly.) Hilton describes the affair as “super silly, ridiculous, naughty fun.”

Following President Obama’s statement on Supreme Court’s ruling Friday morning to legalize gay marriage in all 50 states, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer couldn’t help but marvel at how “years from now, historians will write about this week – amazing week here in the United States” as President Obama saw favorable rulings on ObamaCare and gay marriage in addition to Congress passing “his free trade authority legislation.” As the President left the podium at the White House Rose Garden, Blitzer reminded viewers that Obama was speaking “[f]or the second day in a row” so he could “applaud a major historic United States Supreme Court decision.”

On Thursday night, Fox News host Megyn Kelly led with a “vicious” stunt pulled on Instagram by an official with the Spanish-language network Univision – a network that plans to host a presidential debate next year. Alberto Ciurana, the network’s president of programming and content posted an image of Donald Trump next to Charleston racist mass murderer Dylann Roof.

Univision has vowed to cancel its airing of the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant over his recent comments on criminal elements among Mexico’s illegal immigrants. Kelly wanted the media as a whole to denounce this stunt, asking how it would be greeted if a Fox News programming executive did something like this with Hillary Clinton:
