In a near 180-degree reversal to his interview the previous evening with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Democratic presidential candidate and socialist Bernie Sanders found himself on Friday’s CBS This Morning being repeatedly slammed from the right by co-host Norah O’Donnell on his far-left tax plans and hope for a universal health care system.

ESPN’s Jemele Hill and Michael Smith used a significant portion of their program “His & Hers” on Thursday to further solidify the fact that the only viewpoint supported by ESPN is one that supports the radical activism of the Black Lives Matter movement.

In an interview with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Friday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie pressed the Republican presidential candidate on whether Donald Trump was hurting the GOP: “Is Trump doing long-term damage to the Republican brand if he's insulting Muslims, Latinos, women, veterans, prisoners of war? I mean, do you worry about the effect this is having for the long-term prospects of the Republican Party?”

One of America’s favorite corn-chip snacks just got in touch with its gender sexuality side.

According to NBC, “Doritos unveiled bags of rainbow-colored corn chips on Thursday in support of the It Gets Better Project, an organization started to encourage gay and lesbian teenagers who've been bullied.”

The cool-ranch flavored chip will now sport an edible version of the Gay Pride flag. For a limited time, the bold and better triangles will feature the colors green, blue, purple, red, and orange.

Appearing exclusively on Thursday night’s edition of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Democratic presidential candidate and socialist Bernie Sanders was lobbed one softball question after another that included Maddow gushing that “[y]ou’ve been preparing for this whole life” and wondering if the success he’s had thus far was “energizing” or “tiring and overwhelming.”

This NewsBuster is a paid subscriber and regular listener to Hugh Hewitt's podcasts, and believes that Hugh is the ablest conservative interviewer on radio. So it was surprising to see him serve as such a loyal CNN soldier on today's Morning Joe.

Hewitt, a member of the CNN panel at Wednesday's GOP debate, refused to complain about the paltry opportunities he was given to question the candidates. And defending the fact that Donald Trump had been given twice Scott Walker and Mike Huckabee's airtime, Hewitt said that while "unfortunate," Jake Tapper had done a "marvelous" job of allocating time. That was too much for Mika Brzezinski, who bluntly told Hewitt: "I guess you're probably uncomfortable being honest about this."  Mika's skepticism is on vivid display in the screengrab.

Among the insights: Fiorina "has a notable facility for delivering answers that thrill conservatives but fall apart under close examination"; a discussion of childhood vaccines showed that the party is "fervid, claustrophobic, recklessly insinuating, and, at the same time, utterly timid when it comes to extremism in its own ranks”; and the GOP as a whole is "wedded to the tenets of [George W.] Bushism — rabid, debt-financed, regressive tax-cutting, reflexive hostility to regulation, and a pervasive anti-intellectualism."

All three Thursday network evening newscasts led off with their respective recaps and analysis of the second Republican presidential debate, but NBC Nightly News stood out in proclaiming that the event “expos[ed] disconnects within the Republican Party” on issues such as Iraq in addition to defending Hillary Clinton from Fiorina’s “fierce attack” against her and Planned Parenthood.

NPR generously donated an hour-long interview on Wednesday on The Diane Rehm Show to former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. (Rehm also gave an hour to former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb in July.) Both Democrats are in Pataki territory in the polls for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The strangest part came when Rehm turned to the Republican desire to discontinue federal funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider. Rehm bizarrely made it sound like there was just one Center for Medical Progress video, and one “individual” recorded discussing selling baby body parts. O’Malley denied ever seeing “that video.”

Carly Fiorina is "either a liar, or she's delusional" regarding the Planned Parenthood sting videos, Salon editor-at-large Joan Walsh snarled on tonight's edition of Hardball.

It is among the most durable of left-wing delusions, one that refuses to die a worthy death nearly a half-century after liberal propagandists dumped it on the public.

The bogus claim made its most recent appearance on -- go figure -- MSNBC during yet another earnestly deceptive broadcast of The Rachel Maddow Show.

As part of Phil Griffin's ongoing effort to boost the ratings of MSNBC, the cable channel's president announced on Thursday that Chuck Todd -- the 12th moderator of the Meet the Press Sunday morning series and political director for NBC News -- and Kate Snow -- a national correspondent for a number of the network's news programs  – are joining the weekday afternoon slate as part of the cable channel's attempt to move from liberal commentary to hard news.

In his memo, Griffin stated: “This is an exciting time. Thanks as always for all your hard work. We’re making great strides every day.”

In her first live interview of the 2016 campaign via satellite, Hillary Clinton spoke with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during Thursday's The Situation Room and received a free pass from Blitzer in allowing her to dodge a question about whether she’s viewed the horrifying Planned Parenthood videos. He asked only two questions, in a 14-and-a-half-minute interview, about her e-mail scandal.

Leave it to CNN to go to the streets of Tehran for commentary on the Republican presidential primary.
