Promoting a new movie on Thursday’s CNN Tonight, View co-host Whoopie Goldberg gushed that Pope Francis has made her “reinterested and reinvigorated” in the Catholic Church because she believes that he’s told parishioners they “don’t...need to be obsessed with gay people” and should “quit hurting women’s feeling about having gotten an abortion.”

Here’s another sign of reporters trying way too hard to make President Obama and Pope Francis some kind of political twins.

Brian Williams, now demoted to breaking news anchor for MSNBC, on Friday lamented that John Boehner had to “put up” with the Tea Party as Speaker of the House. His colleague Chris Matthews cheered, “Everybody likes John Boehner. I can tell you the media like him.” Talking to NBC political editor Mark Murray, Williams blurted, “Talk about what John Boehner has had to put up that is unique to his Speakership. I guess I'm mostly thinking of the Tea Party revolution.”

The 12th season of Grey's Anatomy has begun and my, how it is showing its age! Apparently the episode was titled “Sledgehammer” to indicate that they are going to beat us over the head with the same liberal themes all season long.

In the litany of network news coverage Thursday night on Pope Francis’s address to Congress, ABC’s World News Tonight largely stayed away from the Pope’s comments about abortion and traditional marriage by relegating them to vague references while CBS and NBC did their due diligence and mentioned them amidst their continued obsession over the Pope’s liberal positions.

"Not a single network news outlet caught the visual and the words of Pope Francis turning and rebuking Barack Obama on religious liberty," Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell told Fox News's Neil Cavuto this afternoon.
