Al Sharpton’s weekday program PoliticsNation will move to Sunday mornings starting in September, and the folks on Morning Joe gushed at the new opportunities this would give the MSNBC host. Joe Scarborough called Sharpton’s move “happy news” and eagerly told Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd “It's a perfect tee up for chuck Todd...You have a strong lead in now. You’ve got a strong number three hitter for your cleanup fourth.”

Rowan Blanchard is a 13 year old girl who also happens to be a Disney star – oh, and she also just penned an essay on “intersectional feminism” that has Harry Potter actress and fellow feminist Emma Watson fawning over.

"Issues that are commonly thought of as feminist issues include sexual assault, rape, abortion, Planned Parenthood, domestic violence, equal education, and the wage gap," she wrote. "Feminists have also adopted marriage equality and gay/lesbian rights as their issue which is wonderful."

On the Friday morning network newscasts, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today showed no interest in picking up on an ABC News report that former President Bill Clinton sought approval from his wife’s State Department for speeches that involved African dictators and North Korea with the speaking fee for the former engagement worth $650,000.

Isn’t it funny how anti-religion liberal elitists are so quick to blame Christianity when a Christian messes up, as if the failure to live up to an ideal is the ideal’s fault.

Yesterday HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps and guest, entertainment journalist Dayvee Sutton, commented on the continuing Duggar drama. According to a statement released by the Duggar family, the married man and father of four children recently decided to check himself into a long-term treatment center after being the subject of two major scandals this year.

On Friday’s Morning Joe, Bloomberg Politics managing editor Mark Halperin strongly condemned Hillary Clinton’s decision to compare Republican politicians to terrorists over the issue of abortion. Halperin did not mince words when he repudiated the Democratic frontrunner's language and argued that “[i]f a Republican did this the world would come to a halt.”

So who's Hillary's enforcer? Last week we asked "who got to Donny Deutsch?" when he suddenly became supportive of Hillary whereas just the week before he had been very critical of her.

The same thing has happened with Ed Rendell.  Just yesterday, the former DNC Chairman and Pennsylvania governor was quoted in the New York Times saying Hillary has handled the email scandal "poorly, maybe atrociously, certainly horribly." But on today's Morning Joe, Ed was suddenly singing a different tune, claiming Hillary is doing everything right and plaintively suggesting that there is no problem. That led Mark Halperin to observe "I'm not saying he woke up with a horse head in bed with him," but "he was contacted . . . by what we like to call Clinton associates."

After eight videos exposing Planned Parenthood from the pro-lifers at the Center for Medical Progress, NPR’s Diane Rehm Show devoted an hour Thursday morning to.....”New Tactics In the Anti-Abortion Movement.” Not the tactics of Planned Parenthood, those aren’t going to be the subject.

The guest panel was stacked with two “objective” journalists both questioning these tactics, along with Terry O’Neill of NOW and Carol Tobias of the National Right to Life Committee. Then the show is further tilted by....the callers. Diane Rehm’s producers couldn’t find one pro-life caller in the entire hour.

On Thursday, the CBS Evening News seized on the deadly shooting of two local news reporters in Roanoke, Virginia to promote the idea that gun control should be treated like “a public health issue” akin to seat belts, airbags, and anti-smoking campaigns. In a tease early on in the program, fill-in anchor Maurice DuBois explained that “[s]ome public health officials say gun violence, just like car accidents and smoking-related illnesses can be prevented or at least reduced.”

The liberal Atlanta Journal-Constitution's PolitiFact website recently dismissed as "half-true" a completely factual charge by a conservative group regarding Planned Parenthood's lack of mammography screenings.

Two weeks ago, cable and broadcast giant Comcast announced that its NBCUniversal unit would invest $200 million in Vox Communications, thereby "creating a partnership to help the television giant better connect with younger audiences."

Based on what follows and far more examples than one could hope to cite in a single post, Comcast should consider asking for their money back. Apparently trying to capitalize on the anti-Second Amendment hysteria the Obama administration and the left have attempted to foster after Vester Lee Flanagan II shot and killed Alison Parker and Adam Ward in Virginia, Vox posted the following breathtakingly ignorant tweet (since taken down; HT Twitchy):

New York Times reporter Jackie Calmes has been playing aggressive defense for Planned Parenthood. So when the organization commissioned its own report accusing the Center for Medical Progress of manipulating its videos via selective editing, Calmes treated the stunt as news. But she left out vital information from Planned Parenthood's supposed exoneration -- that it came courtesy of a firm that engaged in pro-Obama opposition research against conservatives.

While it may be a shock that the major broadcast networks on Thursday night reported that Hillary Clinton compared Republicans to “terrorists” on women’s health, it was far from a surprise that ABC and NBC openly cheered her for “coming out swinging” “on the offensive” with some “tough talk.” In addition, ABC, CBS, and NBC all refused to denounce Clinton’s comparison even though they chastised the use of the term “anchor baby” by Donald Trump and Jeb Bush.

Wow. This is quite telling. On his Hardball program tonight, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, a native of the City of Brotherly Love, compared Hillary Clinton's campaign to the NL East cellar-dwelling Philadelphia Phillies -- 50-77 record, 20.5 games behind division-leading New York Mets.

Black pastors and pro-life leaders held a press conference today protesting an exhibit some called “outrageous” at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The exhibit contains a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, an outspoken leader of the eugenics movement, ironically placed in the “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, right between iconic civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks.

On Thursday's CNN Newsroom, during coverage of the shooting deaths of two journalists in Virginia by a disgruntled former co-worker, CNN anchor Carol Costello declared that "it just makes me angry" that, in the aftermath of such high-profile shootings, "nothing is ever done" to try to prevent future shootings because of people who "hide behind their old, tired arguments."

About an hour later, after CNN's Chris Cuomo brought up her expression of anger, he lamented the failure for politicians to enact more gun laws as he declared that "any fool would know" that "there's a better way to deal with guns in this society than we are," before soon adding, "Of course the gun policy doesn't make sense right now .Of course it doesn't. And that's why you're angry."
