ABC on Monday eagerly touted an "exclusive" interview with Elian Gonzalez. Jim Avila, appearing on Good Morning America and World News with his scoop, never mentioned that the now-21-year-old might have been brainwashed with Cuban communist propaganda. Instead, he parroted, "Elian still supports Fidel Castro, who has routinely visited him since his return, with his classmates, at his birthday and national events."

In her May 19 piece, "Maxim Just Became Your New Feminist Bible," Daily Beast writer Emily Shire hailed the men's magazine for selecting musician Taylor Swift as the cover girl for its latest edition, containing a "Hot List" of female celebrities. Shire was delighted at the choice of Swift and of the photo itself which "emphasizes Swift’s piercing, brooding eyes" and hold her forth as "a woman rather than a set of breasts—and a successful woman, at that."

But all the same, Shire wishes Maxim might be a little bit, well, bolder and make say actress Lena Dunham or presidential candidate Hillary Clinton the cover girl.

Following Hillary Clinton’s first time engaging with the press in nearly a month, MSNBC predictably cheered her performance. Evidently 28 days is not enough of an opportunity to prepare for questions, because afternoon host Thomas Roberts lauded her brief few minutes with the press: “She was pretty great on the fly answering these questions. She didn't hedge on much of anything. And she buckled to the pressure of the fact that she has hasn't answered questions in a month.”

The journalists on MSNBC, Tuesday, appeared baffled at Hillary Clinton's struggling presidential campaign, deeming it a "mystery" why the candidate doesn't answer more questions. Alex Seitz-Wald talked up the Democrat's meager five minute press conference: "I certainly don't think it will satisfy the cries [for more journalistic access], but it might sate them for a while at least." USA Today's Susan Page insisted "it's a mystery to me why she doesn't want to take a couple questions every day" since "she does it very well."

A prominent American businessman said the media have unfairly “pounced” on recent data to slam Gov. Scott Walker’s employment policies in Wisconsin.

CKE Restaurants CEO Andrew Puzder, whose company owns Hardee’s, Carl’s Jr. and other restaurants, defended Walker’s jobs record on CNBC’s Squawk Box May 19. According to Puzder, Walker’s critics in the media took data “completely out of context” from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN's Michaela Pereira and Alisyn Camerota heralded the first Twitter conversation between President Obama and former President Bill Clinton.

How does liberal Hollywood spin a scandal which disgraced a veteran journalist and an award-winning producer?  Use a discredited liberal journalist’s take on it, of course. 

The Wrap reported this morning that Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the U.S. right to the film Truth, an adaption of the memoir of ex-Dan Rather producer Mary Mapes defending “Rathergate.” Mapes and Rather’s 60 Minutes report based on forged memos about President Bush’s military record got both her and Rather dismissed from CBS.

Good Morning America on Tuesday covered the latest details of Hillary Clinton's scandals and her refusal to talk to the media. However, George Stephanopoulos, the man who gave $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation and who "loves" the Democrat, did not anchor the segment. Instead, co-host Robin Roberts explained, "The State Department announcing it may not release her private e-mails from when she was Secretary of State until early next year."

Last time around, liberals saw their incessantly touted "war on women" as a premise to embarrass Republican and gain advantage with voters. This time around, they're harping on an actual war, the one fought in Iraq, and yet again liberals are relying on a dishonest premise.

After Jeb Bush's meandering journey last week in answering questions about the start of the conflict, and Marco Rubio's combative interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday on the same subject, Rush Limbaugh is suggesting a better way for GOP candidates to respond -- reject the premise.

Despite Hillary Clinton surging past 40,000 minutes without answering a single question from the press, the media have continued to attack Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio for their answers about the wisdom of invading Iraq. This time, former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather joined the chorus on MSNBC, going as far as to tell Rachel Maddow that Bush and Rubio would “score in the high 90s on a dumb test, because no one would give these kinds of answers.”

On Tuesday, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today continued to promote President Obama officially joining Twitter and featured numerous fawning segments highlighting the “Breaking News.” After CBS and NBC both touted Obama’s new Twitter handle on their Monday night broadcasts, their respective morning shows provided 4 minutes and 35 seconds of free promotion for the new @POTUS account.

Too big to fall? Yeah, like $105 million too big.

The New York Post reports that ABC News renewed their contract with George Stephanopoulos for $105 million last year. And now it is simply too expensive to dump the face of ABC News for the huge ethical lapse of failing to disclose his $75,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation in addition to not revealing the time he spent hosting events for that organization while interviewing "Clinton Cash" author Peter Schweizer.
