CNN is clearly desperate for higher ratings when they go out of their way to appear balanced and accurate.

The network's website, CNN.com, ran an astonishing headline last night -- "Dems block DHS funding bill." Yes, you read that correctly. It was caught by Jason Howerton, a reporter at TheBlaze, who posted a story titled "The Headline for the Lead Story on CNN Website Leaves Some Wondering if 'Hell Has Frozen Over.'

Apparently the celebrity suck-ups at Access Hollywood and E! are not fans of those few celebrities who actually think for themselves. After Patricia Arquette’s speech at the Academy Awards condemning the supposed “wage gap” and inequality of women in the U.S., she was met with a standing ovation from the crowd and fawning support from the liberal media for her on-stage comments. But not everyone in Hollywood agreed with Arquette's sentiments. 

Fox News contributor and conservative actress Stacey Dash, of “Clueless” fame, refuted Arquette’s take, saying on Fox & Friends, Feb. 23, “I was appalled, I could not believe it. First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history.” She continued, "In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights."

Continuing to hype a possible "shutdown" of the Homeland Security Department if Congress did not approve funding by Friday, Tuesday's network morning shows all seized on White House talking points that any delay in funding would threaten national security and placed blame for the budget impasse squarely on Republicans.

In an article chock full of "could" and computer model projections, the San Jose Mercury News speculates in its headline, "Climate change may flatten Santa Cruz's famed surfing waves." Key word is "may" since it also may not. However, this doesn't prevent reporter James Urton from engaging in extreme conjecture about surf conditions in a century while computer model projections are often unable to correctly project the weather for the next day.

In case he's been too subtle in the past, an unhinged Chris Matthews made himself clear on Monday: He thinks the Republicans "hate" Barack Obama. The Hardball anchor fumed over insufficient outrage at Rudy Giuliani's assertion that Obama doesn't "love America." In the span of one show, he hit Republicans as "haters" seven times.

On Monday night, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell devoted his nightly “rewrite” segment to challenging former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s claim that he loves America. During his lengthy diatribe, the MSNBC host not only suggested that “when Rudy Giuliani talks about love, he has, and we have, no idea what he’s talking about” and “love of country isn’t easily defined and might not even be necessary.”

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank came positively unglued in Tuesday’s newspaper. He tweeted out this attack on Scott Walker: “Can we be sure Scott Walker isn't a eunuch, Klansman, ISIS sleeper cell or IBS sufferer?”

Like other paranoid Obama-loving liberals, Milbank can’t stand that Walker would punt when liberal Washington Post reporters ask gotcha questions about whether Obama is a Christian. These people all assume this is a slam-dunk question, like asking if Obama is black.

Cosmopolitan’s role models are clear: the magazine featured Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards last December, and now, for their next pro-choice celebrity, they’ve chosen NARAL’s Ilyse Hogue. 

For Cosmopolitan, senior political writer Jill Filipovic interviewed NARAL president Ilyse Hogue for a Feb. 23 article instructing their young women readership how to “Get That Life: How I Became the President of NARAL Pro-Choice America.” In it, Hogue deemed “freedom, equality, [and] self-determination” as the “values that drive us to fight” for abortion.

Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple devoted a whole post to a fuss caused by David Corn of Mother Jones magazine claiming Bill O’Reilly exaggerated the drama of covering the Falkland Islands war for CBS in 1982. The left is trying to knock off O’Reilly after the Brian Williams scandal.

At the very bottom of the post was this: “(Disclosure: The wife of the Erik Wemple Blog works for Mother Jones).” He’s married to staff writer Stephanie Mencimer. Shouldn’t this information been at the top of the blog? Or convinced Wemple into recusing himself from this one?

In an interview with The Huffington Post published on Monday night, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald admitted to falsely claiming in a segment on January 30's CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley on January 30 that he had served in U.S. Army Special Forces during his service from mid-1970s to 1980.

McDonald retracted what he had told a homeless veteran in Los Angeles by saying, in part, that “I have no excuse,” “I was not in special forces,” and had “no intent in any way to describe my record any different than it is.”

NBC Nightly News offered up a segment on the continued debate in Congress over funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that is set to expire on February 27 in what was the only network coverage of the topic on the three Monday night newscasts. Anchor Lester Holt and senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing left out the underlying issue of the entire debate, which is whether or not to fund President Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Monday’s Washington Post carried a large piece on page A-3 by reporter Karen Tumulty and research editor Alice Crites on the jewelry-shopping habits of Jeb Bush’s wife Columba. The headline was “Documents show the expensive tastes of Jeb Bush’s wife.”

The story began: “In 1999, Columba Bush, the famously private wife of then-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, was detained and fined by federal customs officials for misrepresenting the amount of clothing and jewelry she had bought while on a solo five-day shopping spree in Paris.” This is not exactly how the Post introduced Michelle Obama to the country eight years ago.

The New York Times, having feasted for days on remarks made by former New York City Governor Rudy Giuliani at a private dinner for Scott Walker, is now switching targets to Walker himself.

All three major broadcast networks took time during their post-Oscars stories on Monday night to mention actress Patricia Arquette’s calls for “wage equality” and “equal rights for women,” but it was the CBS Evening News that went one step further by devoting a whole segment to the topic and used loaded statistics to craft a one-sided argument to prop up Arquette’s rant. Anchor Scott Pelley noted her as one example of how award winners “used the national stage as a soapbox” and gushed that “she has point” when it comes to the issue of what men and women earn.

Oh, Hollywood, you're racist and you don't even know it!

That was the undercurrent of post-Oscars analysis delivered by Chris Hayes and panelists on the Monday, February 23 edition of All In. From emcee Neil Patrick Harris's opening joke to a running bit with Octavia Spencer to Sean Penn's "green card" joke, the faculty-lounge lefties assembled on set lectured the Academy Awards for being too white and too insensitive to persons of color.
