Here’s one easy way to demonstrate a newspaper is liberal and has no intention of treating Tea Party conservatism seriously. The Washington Post has skipped doing any book review of the last three best-sellers over the last five years by radio host and constitutional law expert Mark Levin: Ameritopia, The Liberty Amendments, and Plunder and Deceit.

But they made space on Sunday for a 1710-word book review of a radical leftist book by David Daley, the editor in chief of hard-left, entitled Ratf**cked: The True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy. In summation: horrible Republicans “stole democracy” and impede the leftist agenda through corrupt gerrymandering schemes.

On Friday's CNN Tonight, while going on a rant lecturing a Republican guest about "politicizing" the Orlando nightclub terrorist attack, host Don Lemon inserted what sounded like his own political push for more gun control while he was still lecturing his guest about being political.

After the worst terror attack on U.S. soil since 9-11, New York Times reporter Liz Robbins found time to pity some Muslim high school students who had their feelings hurt, on the front of Saturday’s edition: “Young New York Muslims, Robbed of a Respite.” Another article left no mistaking which political party was on the right side of the issue: "President Obama called it both 'an act of terror and an act of hate.' But some Republican officials have refused to acknowledge that it could be considered a hate crime."

The big question the Meet the Press panel tackled on Sunday was, as moderator Chuck Todd put it, “Is the gun debate changed this week?” Todd believed it had, explaining how Democrats have read the GOP’s play book on getting legislation passed, “And Democrats, for the first time, decided to merge terrorism and guns together and run with it. And it did change the rhetoric of the Republicans.”

A few days ago, Vanity Fair reported that Donald Trump is “considering creating his own media business, built on the audience that has supported him thus far in his bid to become the next president of the United States.” Jonathan Chait thinks such a venture “makes sense” since there’d be a “numerically large” ready-made audience for its fare. “Perhaps [Trump] grasps a truth the official Republican Party has refused to acknowledge: The conservative base is a subculture,” wrote Chait in a Thursday post. “It is a numerically large subculture, but a subculture nonetheless. It rejects the moral values of the larger society and wallows within its own imaginary world."

In a shocking development in the push for gun-control Sunday, Senator Chris Murphy, who filibustered for 15 hours regarding the issue, admitted on ABC’s This Week that his proposals would not have stopped any recent mass shooting. “Your proposal would have done nothing in the case of Orlando, it would have done nothing to stop the killing in San Bernardino,” stated ABC’s Jon Karl, calling out Murphy,And in fact, it was unrelated to the killing in Newtown.”

Omar Mateen claimed at various times to be aligned with terrorist groups including ISIS, Hezbollah, and the al-Nusra Front. Tim Dickinson does not consider any of those bloodthirsty outfits “the greatest threat to our homeland security today.” That description, Dickinson argues, best fits the National Rifle Association. “The NRA's unhinged gun advocacy,” he wrote in a Wednesday article, “has created a soft underbelly to our homeland security that radicals are exploiting to inflict mass murder...Make no mistake: The NRA paved the way for the Orlando attack.”

Rejoicing in Hillary Clinton becoming the “presumptive” Democratic presidential nominee, Gayle King, co-host of CBS This Morning, came up with a new name for a demographic group – to which she belongs – who are excited about Hillary Clinton.

Just when you thought Hall of Fame Dodgers announcer Vin Scully couldn’t possibly be any more awesome…he goes ahead and delivers this gem during the Dodgers game against the Brewers on Friday night.

The Catholic Church is always good for a laugh on Catholic-subsidized National Public Radio....not so much your local mosque. On their game show Wait! Wait! Don’t Tell Me, host Peter Sagal inaccurately presented as breaking news a “bold scheme to make money” in Oakland. That’s not quite right. But you can see the punchline potential in putting a vineyard next to a graveyard:

After the murder of a British Parliament member while she was on the street meeting with her constituency, New York Times reporter Steven Erlanger used the front page to smear conservative supporters of Britain leaving the European Union (known as the “Brexit” movement) as anti-immigrant paranoids and “Islamophobic,” in “Growing Dread Over Ugly Tone of ‘Brexit’ Vote.” The online headline to the Saturday edition story really pointed fingers: “Britain Asks if Tone of ‘Brexit’ Campaign Made Violence Inevitable.”

Well this was a disaster of a week. Another Islamic radical attack on America leaves 49 dead and 53 wounded. And like clockwork there go the bitter clingers of the media - bitterly clinging to myths about guns and Christians. The “bitter clinger” phrase, of course, originated with candidate and Senator Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign when he was captured on audio tape at a San Francisco fundraiser.

Just a day after declaring presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump would be banned from his show, NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers is now offering Trump his own show if he drops out of the race for the White House.

The website Deadline on Tuesday reported that Steven Spielberg is considering making a biography of famous CBS journalist Walter Cronkite. Deadline writer Ali Jaafar explained, “The project will focus on Cronkite’s relationship with the Vietnam War and the role that America’s most trusted newsman played in turning public opinion against the increasingly un-winnable conflict.”

On May 1, the Washington Post's Jackson Diehl warned: "We ignore Venezuela’s imminent implosion at our peril," noting that the South American nation of 30 million "has descended into a dystopia where food, medicine, water and electric power are critically scarce." Given the dire humanitarian crisis which has enveloped that country, broadcast media coverage during the ensuing seven weeks, particularly on the Big Three networks, has been sparse to non-existent.

Yesterday, as Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers faced the Milwaukee Brewers in LA, legendary Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, in a 20-second monologue between pitches, did more to substantively educate his audience about the tragic reality in Venezuela than most of the U.S. press has done in months (HT Twitchy):
