Last Friday, a Democrat-led investigation failed to find evidence linking Chris Christie to the 2013 traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge. After initially ignoring the report, ABC allowed 16 seconds on Friday's World News. Anchor David Muir briefly deemed this "welcome news" for the New Jersey Governor and 2016 contender.

On Monday night, President Obama appeared on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report for a friendly interview with the liberal comedian, and Tuesday morning the “big three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) networks predictably promoted the president’s late night stop. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King hyped how Obama “was a guest on Comedy Central Colbert Report last night. It was his first visit to the show as Stephen Colbert gets ready to end that program. At one point it appeared the president may have been auditioning for his next job.”

The Pledge of Allegiance has been under attack by liberals in classrooms and courtroom for years. We wouldn’t want to offend anyone with the word “God” in our pledge now would we?

But rather than quibble with a line here or there, a professor at the Metropolitan State University of Denver, Charles Angeletti, has rewritten the entire pledge and highlights the new “Pledge” as part of his American Civilization Class. The story appeared on “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday, but since the “pledge” is so offensive they only read the first two lines. The rest of it was posted on FoxNews.Com. The new pledge reads:

Dylan Scott writes that “Gruber-mania has gripped the conservative mediasphere in a way that few stories have, becoming another brand-name controversy like Benghazi and the IRS,” and that “the larger meaning was baked into Gruber-gate -- there is a hashtag and Gruber can now be used as a verb -- almost immediately.”

Former CNN host Piers Morgan sat down with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Monday night's The Kelly File to discuss him lobbying Time magazine to name the Ferguson protestors to be their “Person of the Year” for 2014. The interview began with the two jokingly burrying the hatchet regarding their former ratings battle during the 9:00 p.m. timeslot. Speaking to Kelly, Morgan joked that in 2013 “I tweeted you saying, ‘Bring it, Megyn Kelly’...And the mere fact I’m now a guest on the show indicates that you brought it. So congratulations.” The Fox News host said of Morgan’s failed run at CNN :"Thank you very much for being such a gracious loser. We appreciate it."

It’s been a month since video surfaced of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber mocking the “stupidity” of voters and boasting about the duplicitous ways liberals pushed through the far-reaching health care law in 2010, and NBC Nightly News remains the only network evening news broadcast to have completely ignored the story. Here are ten stories — some goofy, some self-promotional, but all of which, unlike the Gruber videos, were deemed worthy of coverage by NBC Nightly News during the past 30 days.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Howard.  The former Dem prez candidate is predictably all good with NBA players wearing "I Can't Breathe" t-shirts.

But what, posited Joe Scarborough on today's Morning Joe, if other players wore "Abortion is Murder" shirts?  Dean claimed that's "not exactly the same" and is "a different kind of debate." Why? Because, according to Dean, "the survival of our country depends" on resolving the police/black men issue. You really want to talk about "survival," Dr. Dean, when tens of millions have not survived since Roe v. Wade?

Yahoo shared the latest unfunny “Borowitz Report” by “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” creator Andy Borowitz. The headline was “Fox: Obama Seeks Advice On Establishing Monarchy” over a picture of the president meeting with Prince William.

Get it? Fox News is crazy and thinks the president wants to go around Congress and make all the laws unilaterally. Wait, where’s the funny part?

On Monday night, ABC News continued to report on the impending release of a report on the CIA’s post-9/11 interrogation methods as though partisanship had no role when, in fact, Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee are the very reason it was compiled and will be released.
                                        
Following a morning in which ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today made no mention of the political reasoning, ABC kept the streak going on World News Tonight with David Muir with another report from ABC News chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz.

Fox News “Mediabuzz” host Howard Kurtz reports yet another tilted article by disgraced Rolling Stone writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely is getting scrutinized, an article obnoxiously titled “One Town's War on Gay Teens: In Michele Bachmann's home district, evangelicals have created an extreme anti-gay climate. After a rash of suicides, the kids are fighting back.” A local conservative activist recalled Erdely asked her for a counterpoint, then never used it.

Has John Heilemann ever gotten this riled up over the commies ruling Cuba? If so, I missed it. But on his Bloomberg TV show tonight, Heilemann got on his populist high horse to blast the British monarchy on the occasion of the visit to the US of Prince William and Princess Kate, mocking them as "undereducated" and calling for the British monarchy to be "done away with tomorrow."

In Heilemann's view, the real "royalty" on view at the Brooklyn Nets game tonight will be Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Lebron James.

Well, we know Chris Rock has a movie coming out next week.  He’s been making the rounds on different media outlets, talking about the issues of the day – recently talking race relations, the Ferguson verdict, even sharing his views about race in Hollywood in an article for the December 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

In what The Hollywood Reporter calls a “Blistering Essay on Hollywood's Race Problem", Rock doesn’t hold anything back when talking about race relations in Hollywood, even comparing Hollywood industry to that of the NBA: “Just as the NBA is a black industry. I'm not even saying it's a bad thing. It just is,” he wrote.

On Monday's CNN Newsroom, Jeanne Moos zeroed in on the largely-negative response to a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC's music video-style ad, which features a country music song about the former First Lady. Moos wasted little time before reporting that "at least one website warns, 'This pro-Hillary cowboy anthem will make your ears bleed.'"

The campaign's worst-kept secret was uncovered when the Kansas City Star, on Sunday, reported that Democrats had financially backed so-called independent candidate Greg Orman in his race to unseat Republican incumbent Senator Pat Roberts. The facade that Orman was an independent was kept up, throughout the campaign, by supposedly skeptical political reporters at ABC, CBS and NBC, even after Democratic candidate Chad Taylor had dropped out in early September.

During an interview airing Monday evening on the Black Entertainment Television cable channel, president Barack Obama attempted to contradict remarks on race relations made by radio icon Rush Limbaugh during a rare appearance on Fox News Sunday, which is hosted by Chris Wallace.

“There’s no acknowledgement of any of the progress,” the conservative host said while discussing the results in America following grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y., in which police officers were not indicted following the deaths of two African-American men.
