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

For one New York Times columnist, democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hasn’t been revolutionary enough in her economic policies. Times columnist Eduardo Porter complained that Clinton’s economic plan, which included “only $1.1 trillion” in new tax hikes and $275 million in infrastructure spending, was just a “careful collection of tweaks and prods.”

Looking for some good news this Father’s Day? Try this heartening video of kids saying what makes their dads special. To Americans, they’re NFL players. But to their kids, they’re just the best dads ever.

Stephen Colbert stooped to a new low on Tuesday night when he connected Donald Trump to Naziism and used a swastika to represent the businessman’s beliefs. In a so-called comedy bit, the Late Show host used a chalkboard to mock Trump’s attacks on Barack Obama. As he began to draw the Nazi insignia, Colbert yelled, “Trump is saying Obama is not smart because he won't say radical Islam.”

Shortly after a radical Jihadist targeted a gay nightclub and murdered 49 people in Orlando, Dan Savage has announced the LGBT community’s enemy #1: Donald Trump. In an interview with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, gay-activist Dan Savage said that “Trump is the enemy of the LGBT community” and “is beating up on…a vulnerable minority group.”

Nearly two days after Donald Trump revoked press credentials of The Washington Post for his campaign events, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports was still wallowing over it on Wednesday afternoon as the eponymous host and her panel slammed the idea that a candidate would attack the liberal media as both “petulant and childish” plus bashed the Reagan administration’s press record.

It’s a new push by numerous companies: showing families with two dads. Hallmark has done it. Campbell’s soup has done it. Now, Dove is doing it.
