During an article posted Tuesday by Jim Romenesko on his website, the retired newsman relayed what happened when David Sze -- a member of Arianna Huffington's research staff -- got more than he bargained for last week when he contacted professional journalist Laurel Lipton, asking to use information she had reported in a book the co-founder of the liberal Huffington Post is in the process of writing, with the promise of citing that research.

Lipton responded angrily, stating: “The rapacious Ms. Huffington seems to believe that journalism skills are worth nothing, and that my beleaguered colleagues and I should be thrilled to help her make hundreds of millions of dollars in return for 'exposure.'”

On Monday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon spotlighted the online "rant" of a grandmother who attacked the "Black Lives Matter" movement. In her video, Peggy Hubbard criticized the lack of outrage in her community over Jamyla Bolden, a nine year old child who was killed near Ferguson, Missouri: "Her life mattered; her dreams mattered; her vision mattered. She could have been the next secretary of state. She could have been the next attorney general. She never got a chance." Lemon interviewed Hubbard, who later later blasted the left-wing concept of "white privilege."

Open mouth, insert bloody sock.

Curt Schilling never held back on the mound, and apparently will not do so at the keyboard either. Though, this time Schilling’s daring will hurt his career instead of helping it.

According to a new Media Research Center report, the three networks are minimizing every Republican presidential candidate not named Donald Trump. In addition to ignoring policy proposals from Republicans such as Scott Walker, ABC, NBC and CBS are avoiding raising any questions about extremely harsh attacks. Congresswoman Gwen Moore of Wisconsin said this of Walker: "[Walker was] literally campaigning around the state, saying you don't want to be like Milwaukee, while at the same time really tightening the noose, literally, around African-Americans."

From inside the bubble of Team Maddow at MSNBC.com, blogger Steve Benen offered a piece of audacious spin headlined “Planned Parenthood faring far better than its critics.” Some state investigations aren’t turning up wrongdoing, like in Pennsylvania – not the strongest state at policing abortion clinics (Gosnell ahem) – but Benen declared “At this point, the group keeps facing investigations, and its critics keep turning up nothing.”

At the bottom of the blog post, Benen admitted a financial tie in all this spin: His wife Eve works for Planned Parenthood.

On Tuesday, Hussein Sheikholeslam, a senior foreign affairs adviser to the Iranian parliament claimed that Israel “should be annihilated.” The condemnation came after the United Kingdom reopened their shuttered embassy in Tehran on Monday. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond lauded the move by the British government, citing the current Iranian administration's “more nuanced” attitude toward Israel’s place in the Middle East. This comment resulted in the incendiary correction by the senior official according to Iranian news agency FARS:

The Canadian government is souring maple syrup production in Quebec, according to The New York Times.

Through the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, an agency, the Times referred to as a “cartel,” the Canadian government has seized control of 70 percent of the world’s maple syrup supply and turned the lives of Canadian farmers upside down.

Journalists, take note: the media may stay forever silent on the videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s demonic trafficking of aborted baby parts, but everyday Americans won’t.

ProtestPP, a coalition of pro-life groups, organized a National Day of Protest challenging Planned Parenthood on Saturday, August 22. While the 353 rallies held across the nation attracted a total of 68,764 attendees, they didn’t capture the attention of the broadcast networks. During their morning and evening news shows, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the crowds.

Apparently, Iran’s mullahs aren’t the only ones swindling Barack Obama.

Admittedly, the guy declares victory after allowing Iran to police its own nuke program isn’t the toughest mark you could choose, but it doesn’t make this story any less awesome.

It doesn't seem likely that an oil company CEO would get the benefit of the doubt Apple CEO Tim Cook received from the press yesterday after he emailed well-known financial commentator and investment adviser Jim Cramer about his company's performance in China.

In an email read over the air on CNBC, Cook reported that "we have continued to experience strong growth for our business in China through July and August." The question is whether, by providing this private disclosure, Cook violated U.S. "fair disclosure" regulations requiring that "materal information" be disclosed to the public.

In a fawning softball interview with New Republic editor Jamil Smith on NBC’s web-based Meet the Press feature Press Pass, moderator Chuck Todd urged the liberal journalist to justify racially divisive reporting: “So let me start with this idea of why we should, in the media, report on identity politics essentially. Why does it matter?”

Sean Hannity is sick of Chris Matthews's "hypocritical" pandering on issues of race, calling out the Hardball anchor, Monday, for smearing Republicans even as he protects MSNBC colleagues. Unloading, Hannity attacked, "...If that hypocrite, that phony, Chris Matthews, is so concerned about race issues, he has a colleague at his own network."

First it was a destroyed hard drive, then it was a busted BlackBerry and now we find out Lois Lerner used another personal e-mail account to conduct government business that utilized the alias “Toby Miles.” This IRS targeting scandal has more twists than an old episode of Law and Order, but it’s still not enticing the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) to go back to covering it.

As with the trailer, there’s one word to describe the new video exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted babies: demonic.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released an eighth investigative video on August 25 featuring StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admitting that her company receives “intact” aborted baby “cases” from clinics and laughing over the thought of shipping baby heads. She also confirmed her company’s once-strong relationship with Planned Parenthood, an abortion giant that only works with abortion “champions.”
