Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon may mock Hillary Clinton, but don’t be confused: She “loves” the Democratic politician. The comedienne appeared on Thursday’s Live! With Kelly and Michael to gush over how Clinton cares so much. After co-host Michael Strahan asked about her impression, McKinnon fawned, “Whenever I do an impression of someone, I have to love them. So everyone I've ever done, I personally love. And for her, what I love is how badly she wants to fix the country, and I genuinely know that.”

Appearing on Monday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to discuss the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College, CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Harry Houck asserted that he had a "big problem" with the Oregon college being a "gun-free zone," as he complained that such locations "lead lambs to the slaughter."

He went on to declare that, "If my kid went to that school, I'd be talking to that administration" about why they do not allow any guns at the school. After praising the local police for an unusually fast response time, he began his commentary:

Poor Gary Legum at How dare supporters of the right to keep and bear arms as clearly defined in the Constitution's Second Amendment push back against the gun control movement's cynical exploitation of Thursday's Roseburg, Oregon massacre?

Legum is outraged that "The right tells us (again) to ignore the elephant in the room." He must mean the fact that the area in question at Umpqua Community College was a "posted" gun-free zone with only unarmed security guards, right? Of course not. Legum is upset over Americans' "irrational attachment ... to weaponry" — so upset that he descended into profanity and name-calling that would likely end his career forever if he were a right-wing commentator.

Today is the first Monday in October and with it the beginning of the Supreme Court's new term. For the occasion, Politico's Josh Gerstein gave readers "5 cases to watch as Supreme Court term begins," using rather loaded language in the story to give a heavy liberal spin to the docket preview.

Monday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough discussed Bernie Sanders and how strange it is the crowds he draws, and young people in particular. Brzezinski would highlight the numbers Sanders' campaign has brought in compared to President Obama. Brzezinski and Scarborough would address the rise of Sanders and the strong young voter base he has. The discussion would lack at the desire for non-mainstream ideas and how outsider candidates like Trump and Sanders have articulated themselves in the primaries.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota touted Hillary Clinton's new gun control proposals during an interview of former Governor Mike Huckabee on Monday's New Day. Camerota pointed out Mrs. Clinton's "tighten the gun show Internet sales loophole" idea, and asserted, "Isn't that one a no-brainer?" She then asked, "Shouldn't there be universal background checks, and people not be able to buy guns online? Are you comfortable with that suggestion of hers?"

Last night Show Time aired the season premiere of The Affair, a show about extramarital relations that somehow managed to make it into a second season. That’s not the only thing that got some air time though. Within the first half of the show, viewers got a taste of blatant Hillary Clinton campaign propaganda.

MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall displayed her disgust at GOP strategist Matt Schlapp on her show Monday when she pounded away at Carly Fiorina over a hard-charging Washington Post story today hitting Carly Fiorina for failing to pay bills from her “quixotic” 2010 Senate campaign. Schlapp brought up Hillary Clinton stealing furniture from the White House in 2000 (an old scandal that was broken by....that same Washington Post).

Hall told Schlapp “We’re done” and said he  would regret “going there” and that he ruined a “legitimate conversation about a news report.”

Damsel in distress no longer describes female pop artists in music videos. With the release of the music video ‘Disclosure’ by the Magnets featuring Lorde, there is an undeniable gruesome violent trend coming from female singers and it is sweeping across the music video industry.

The “Disclosure” music video portrays Lorde tying a man, presumed to be a cheating guy, to a chair and then pushing him into a pool as he begs for her to stop. She then opens a lighter and throws it into the pool, setting it ablaze. Sounds like something straight out of a horror film.

Both Media Matters and U.S. News have supported Planned Parenthood – through the same employee.

U.S. News & World Report editor Emily Arrowood recently defended Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards after she testified last Tuesday before the House Oversight Committee in regards to the videos exposing the abortion giant’s harvesting of aborted baby parts. Arrowood’s had plenty of practice defending Planned Parenthood. Before working at U.S. News, Arrowood once did the same at Media Matters.

Throughout a live townhall event on Monday’s Today, Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton was treated to one softball after another from her adoring supporters at NBC. One sycophantic fan set the tone: “Secretary Clinton, you've had a lot of tough questions this morning. This may be the toughest one you get all day. But many years ago we saw another Clinton at his inauguration play an instrument and have a song. What song or instrument would you play at yours?"

ABC and NBC on Sunday and Monday fawned over the “hilarious,” "spontaneous” Hillary Clinton appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. As though she were blurbing a movie, Good Morning America’s Cecilia Vega on Monday cheered, “It is the new, spontaneous Hillary Clinton who hopes to be laughing all the way to the White House.”

During appearances on NPR’s All Things Considered and PBS NewsHour on Friday, the Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne and the New York Times’ David Brooks eagerly touted President Obama’s blatant decision to “politicize” the Oregon school shooting to push gun control.

Parents: Have an athletic son or daughter? Do you encourage him to play to his highest level of excellence? Do you spend time and money making sure she can reach her potential? Well according to The Washington Post, you’re being really unfair to my slow fat kid.

Yes, to its horror the Post has once again discovered that life isn’t fair. It seems participation in youth sports is down and writer Michael S. Rosenwald knows the culprit: parents. Specifically, parents “in the suburbs, where the shift to elite competition over the past two decades has taken a growing toll: Children are playing fewer sports, and the less talented are left behind in recreational leagues with poor coaching, uneven play and the message that they aren’t good enough.”

A new fact-checking organization is set to launch in October 2015, but it turns out a liberal billionaire is behind it and footing most of the bill.

Poynter Institute, a journalism education organization, announced in July that it would be creating a new International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) this year, headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida. On Sept. 21, Poynter announced its appointment of Alexios Mantzarlis as director and editor for IFCN. Mantzarlis is the former managing editor of Italy’s leading fact-checking website Pagella Politica.
