Nice guys may not always finish first. However, after being away from the game for two years and fighting it out with 89 other players at the peak of their profession to try and crack a 53 man roster, sometimes all that matters is being the nice guy that finishes.

According to head coach Chip Kelly, finishing the offseason as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles is a goal very much within reach for football’s greatest nice guy, Tim Tebow.

Donald Trump is not only front and center on the cover of this weeks’ Time magazine, but he is also featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter where he gave an extensive interview with Janice Min, Chief Creative Officer of THR.

On Brian Williams, Trump said he wasn't a fan: "he should have left with dignity and shouldn't have gone back to work for the same company. For him to go from the parent to the poor sister [network] — and that's not even the poor sister, that's the poor baby. He has never treated me well, so I'm not a fan."

The churning of market forces in television are once again forcing the question of why Americans are spending hundreds of millions of tax dollars a year on public broadcasting. On August 13, HBO announced it was buying all-new episodes of the iconic PBS show Sesame Street, delaying their debut on PBS for nine months.

Decades of liberal mockery of Republicans for wanting to “kill Big Bird” just collapsed in an ugly pile. The show that was supposedly dedicated to poor kids in “underserved” communities was just sold to the highest-bidding paywall in Yuppie Land. Before that they were negotiating with Amazon and Netflix as well.

Tonight's report at the Associated Press in the wake of Wall Street's disastrous day isn't quite an Animal House moment — "Remain Calm! All Is Well!" — but it's more than fair to say that the wire service's Matthew Craft and Bernard Condon allowed quite a bit of wishful thinking into their writeup.

In late June, I noted that the AP's Ken Sweet asked a very important question about China ("IS THERE A POINT WHERE I SHOULD GET WORRIED?"), and failed to answer it. He also claimed that "The biggest concern is whether the drop in China's stock market will cause the country's economy to slow." The headline and opening sentence in tonight's AP dispatch attempted to maintain that false appearance (bolds are mine):

There’s one word to describe the upcoming video exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted babies: demonic.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a trailer on August 21 advertising its eighth investigative video. In the two-minute clip, StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admitted that her company receives “intact” (whole) aborted baby bodies from the abortion clinics they work with – and laughed at the thought of shipping baby heads.

The media won’t cover videos showing the horrific damage abortion does to babies – but they’re only too happy to promote a movie showing a young woman choosing abortion.

Opening in theaters August 21, Grandma stars Lily Tomlin as Elle Reid, a misanthrope lesbian poet who helps her 18-year-old granddaughter get an abortion. With ABC calling the film “funny” and “brilliant” and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon deeming the film “great,” the abortion-centered film promises to win only more media hype.

Obama-helping Washington Post reporter Krissah Thompson was at it again Friday, nudging the nation’s capital to the news that the Obamas will not be returning to Chicago in their post-presidential lives.

“They’ve probably outgrown Chicago socially and professionally,” said Slevin, who interviewed many of the family’s associates. “Chicago can’t hold them.”

One day, someone will have to write a book about the topical dexterity of one Donald John Trump.

Fresh off beating the drum for possible constitutional amendments and shouting at reporters over the term “anchor babies,” Donald Trump has seen fit to ally himself with another wealthy and successful achiever in the public eye who is currently in a fight with his own version of “the establishment.”

During Thursday night's edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC comedian helped first lady Michelle Obama make a public service announcement “encouraging kids to make healthier choices about foods” in a new campaign called “FNV,” which stands for “Fruits 'N' Veggies.”

However, Kimmel pretended to be baffled by the effort's name, which he claimed stands for “Eat Your Effin' Vees” since he knows what the “F” really stands for because “I have HBO.”

Tales of people awakening in hotel bathtubs to find their kidneys had been removed were an Internet staple in the 1990s. Taub, who's expecting her first child, argues that those bogus stories have something in common with unwanted pregnancies, given that pregnancy is a “category of living organ donation.”

“The idea of forcing someone into an organ transplant is indeed so appalling that it is the subject of several horror films, not to mention urban myths the world over,” commented Taub in a Friday article. “But the idea of forcing someone, by law and against their will, to endure the physical tolls and dangers of pregnancy is somehow considered a mainstream political position.”

The time stamp on an Associated Press report on Hillary Clinton's email "worries" ("CLINTON FACING FRESH WORRIES IN CONGRESS OVER EMAILS") by Ken Thomas and Julie Bykowicz this morning is 11:21 a.m. Eastern Time.

Despite that time stamp, the report fails to mention a bombshell report from Reuters ("Dozens of Clinton emails were classified from the start, U.S. rules suggest") originally posted at 5:17 a.m. (time stamp has since been updated). Going even further back, the AP story fails to mention a Thursday afternoon story about how "A federal judge has ordered the State Department to cooperate with the investigation into the Hillary Clinton private email scandal." The decision to ignore these developments is in all likelihood deliberate.

On Friday’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski confronted Danny Shea, Huffington Post Editorial Director, over his liberal website’s decision to cover Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in its entertainment section rather than in politics. After Brzezinski told Shea that his website “made a mistake,” the Huffington Post editor attempted to justify why they cover the GOP frontrunner as entertainment: [O]ur big statement is that Donald Trump is not a serious candidate, he's an entertainer.”

ABCNews.com this afternoon hyped an exchange between liberal actress Ellen Page, who is a lesbian, and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on the issue of protecting the religious liberties of wedding-service providers who won't take same-sex wedding jobs due to religious convictions.

Fortunately for readers, they included the full video of the exchange which shows Cruz capably and politely schooling Ms. Page on the issue.

Athlete endorsements are tricky.

Sometimes you want them, such as when Michael Jordan hosted a celebrity fundraiser for President Obama in 2012 which netted the Prez a million dollars. Sometimes you don’t want them, like yesterday when Charles Barkley said he would vote for John Kasich. Barkley, a liberal Democrat, noted he’d prefer ultra-lefties Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro. But, barring their entrance, Kasich looks like his guy.

Playboy isn’t the type of publication you would expect to write about age discrimination – given the fact that most of the women they feature are what would be considered  “young,” not to mention their physical attributes and the fact they are exploiting women could be labeled sexism, but that’s another story.
