Barack Obama’s political appointees are not only celebrated by the media as the best and brightest America has to offer. They are promoted as so bright they are allowed to boast about how they masterfully manipulate the press, like sculpting a smelly can of journalistic Play-Doh.

The New York Times Magazine wrote a long profile of Obama’s foreign-policy communications whiz Ben Rhodes, lauded as “the master shaper and retailer of Obama's foreign-policy narratives, at a time when the killer wave of social media has washed away the sand castles of the traditional press.”

Early in Tuesday’s live coverage of the Nebraska and West Virginia primaries, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews perpetuated the notion that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “is a safe, sort of centrist Democrat” just like Walter Mondale and “not much different from Obama” aside from a more “hawkish” foreign policy.

Former ABC, CBS and NBC anchor Katie Couric takes on the National Rifle Association and other Second Amendment supporters in a new film entitled Under the Gun, which will debut at 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 15, on the Epix pay cable channel.

Currently an anchor for Yahoo! Google News, Couric is an executive producer and narrator of the documentary, which -- according to the movie's website -- “examines the events and people who have kept the gun debate fierce and the progress slow, even as gun deaths and mass shootings continue to increase.”

Many abortion supporters are in favor of one choice: abortion. Or at least that's what comedian Samantha Bee’s show seems to claim.

On Monday night, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee dedicated a segment to bashing crisis pregnancy centers. Together with comedian Patton Oswalt, Bee tried to label the centers as “bullsh*t,” “dickheads” and “assholes.” Instead of dutifully exploring both sides, the show churned out abortion propaganda while poking fun at both Christians and the pro-life movement.

Please, dear Guccifer. Please save us from the Evil Overlord Hillary with your revelations about hacking her email server. 

That is not a prayer from a conservative Republican hoping that the testimony of Romanian hacker "Guccifer" whose real name is Marcel-Lehel Lazar will discredit Hillary Clinton to such an extent that she would no longer be a viable candidate. Instead this fervid hope comes from a Bernie Sanders supporter, H.A. Goodman, who writes perhaps a bit too optimistically about this possibility in the Huffington Post as you can tell from this article title, "Romanian Hacker ‘Guccifer’ Just Gave Bernie Sanders the Democratic Nomination."

On Tuesday, all three network morning shows expressed shock and dismay at allegations that Facebook censored conservative political news from its supposed trending news feed. At the top of NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie declared: “Censored by Facebook? The popular social network being accused of routinely suppressing conservative stories from its trending feed. The claim coming from former workers.”

A sneering Jon Stewart on Monday wondered, “When was America great?” The former Daily Show host appeared with David Axelrod at the University of Chicago and mocked conservatives. Connecting Donald Trump to the right, the comedian lectured, “He makes sense if you view it through the prism of talk radio.... Republicans, conservatives love America. They just hate, like, 50 percent of the people living in it.”

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski gushed over Hillary Clinton on Tuesday's Morning Joe, and lamented how her campaign staff and the press are distracting her from showing her true self: "My gut is Hillary Clinton needs to be Hillary Clinton — the one that you meet one on one....She's going to have to just be herself — because herself has always been the best thing for her." Brzezinski later contended that "if she gets everybody out of her own way and just, kind of, speaks from the heart, I bet you it would be incredibly moving."

Spoiler Alert: Captain America has a “flaw.” It may be hard to believe with his impeccable morals, charming personality and his, well, perfectly formed biceps, but yes, Cap has a fatal flaw - he’s not gay.

Most women will celebrate that. But not Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson, because in Marvel’s latest installment, Captain America: Civil War, Disney squashed any possibility of a romance between Steve Rogers and his longtime pal, Bucky. And she has bone to pick with Disney about that.

In a column that showcases the leftist belief that the ends justify the means, the Charlotte Observer and its parent company McClatchy have expressed nothing short of support for the economic boycotts of North Carolina in light of Republicans remaining defiant after Governor Pat McCrory signed a bathroom bill to ensure that people use the bathroom according to the gender they were born with.

Ever since the first Muslim Miss USA, former darling of the major news networks converted to Christianity last month, the liberal media cannot care less about her.

Rima Fakih made waves in 2010 when she was crowned Miss America -- the first Muslim to win. At the time CBS, NBC, and ABC all expressed their delight over the pageant results.

On Sunday's This Week show on ABC, during a panel discussion of Paul Ryan's reluctance to endorse GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, The Nation editor Katrina Vanden Heuvel was the latest liberal in the dominant media to repeat the discredited claim that former President Ronald Reagan began his 1980 presidential campaign at the site of a racist murder in Philadelphia, Mississippi. More surprisingly, no one on the panel pushed back against her, even though there were three participants with right-leaning histories present.

At the top of NBC’s Today on Tuesday, co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed that Hillary Clinton was “not taking the bait” after Donald Trump “once again brings up her husband's past infidelities.” In the report that followed, correspondent Andrea Mitchell spun hard for the Democratic candidate: “Donald Trump surprising many observers in both political parties by launching deeply personal attacks on both Hillary and Bill Clinton. The opening round of what is likely to be a vicious campaign.”

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may argue that he’s a conservative, but his latest appointee comes from the ranks of former Soros employees. While that move might be a sticking point on the right, ABC, CBS and NBC have censored all information about Trump’s appointee.
