Appearing on the February 10 edition of Fox Business Network's Risk & Reward, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell blasted lefty tabloid papers like the New York Daily News for insulting Republican primary voters and engaging in a "campaign of character assassination."

Less than a day after Donald Trump won a resounding victory in the New Hampshire primary, the GOP front-runner used his appearance as a guest on MSNBC's Morning Joe program to thank hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski by saying: “You guys have been supporters.”
Of course, the co-hosts -- who were obviously uncomfortable with being described as "supporters” – tried to “clarify” Trump's comments on Wednesday.

The Supreme Court dealt a “major blow” to the Obama administration and the president’s climate agenda late on Feb. 9. NBC, the “Green is Universal” network ignored it entirely. CBS and ABC gave the ruling short shrift.
The Hill reported the high court blocked the “landmark climate rule for power plants” which would have assigned states drastic carbon dioxide reduction rules based on what energy sources they utilize. Liberal Slate called the ruling “an ominous sign.”

Time ran a mostly gushy cover story on Hillary Clinton this week, quoting her as saying “I know what it’s like to be knocked down.” By whom? (How about “I know what it’s like to be gulping for air in disbelief of my husband’s behavior”?)
Someone just paging through the magazine at say, a dentist’s office – if any one of those still subscribes to Time – would catch the Hillary article with the silly headline “Do You See Her Now? After more than four decades in the spotlight, Hillary Clinton is finally coming into view.”

Youth-oriented liberal website Fusion says yay for sleeping around.
Fusion’s Molly Osberg penned a 4,000 word, profanity-laced pitch for polyamory, explaining why open relationships are more natural and better fated than monogamous ones.

Does this man even listen to himself speak? Disgraced former Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Wednesday insisted that, given Marco Rubio’s habit of repeating talking points, all of the Senator’s comments will now be “under the microscope” and must be investigated. This coming from the journalist who lost his job after being exposed for serial falsehoods.

On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, former NBC anchor David Gregory underlined the perils for the future of Hillary Clinton's campaign: "The danger for the Clintons, just like in 2008, is essentially saying...'This is a pipe dream. He can't get any of this stuff done.' A lot of people who support Sanders don't want to hear that. They want to hear what he's actually capable of doing; and they want to give voice to that aspiration." Gregory added, "The grassroots of the Democratic Party is more liberal. This nostalgia for the '90s is over. It's a different party."

On Wednesday, two network morning show hosts had the audacity to accuse a Republican presidential candidate of a lack of “depth.” In an interview with Florida Senator Marco Rubio, NBC Today co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie grilled the GOP contender on his recent debate performance and hyped it as “exposing a major flaw.”

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, liberal CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill advised that Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders needs to show a "vision to combat white supremacy" and "talk to our racial pain" if he wishes to win black voters. The Morehouse College professor also hit Hillary Clinton from the far left as he declared that "the Clintons have been terrible to black people" because of President Bill Clinton's support for the 1994 crime bill.

One might think the New York Times Book Review would never “stoop” to allowing a Bush cabinet secretary like Tom Ridge to review a book on the Bush record on terrorism. But on Sunday, they selected former Obama Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to review a new book titled United States of Jihad by CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen.
The beyond-weird headline – over courtroom drawings of Nidal Hasan, Faisal Shahzad, and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab – was “All-American Terrorists.” Deep in the middle, J-Nap started sticking up Obama as a tough guy in fighting "man-caused disasters," er, terrorism:

Republican presidential candidate John Kasich confused George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday with a story that included the line “I’m a Democrat.” In an amusing moment, the Good Morning America co-host, himself a former Democratic operative, appeared puzzled, “You’re a Democrat?”

New York Times Phoenix bureau chief Fernanda Santos gave out surprising praise to Republican Gov. Doug Ducey in Wednesday’s edition -- though it’s less surprising when you realize why. Like her newspaper, Santos has a history of trying to discredit Republicans on illegal immigration. In August 2014, Santos suggested Arizona citizens who showed up to a forum to express concerns about border security were misguided because, after all, Mexico was "at least 200 miles away” (now illegal immigration is a national concern of enormous electoral import).

On Judge Jeanine Pirro's Saturday Fox News program, Judge Andrew Napolitano succinctly summarized the implications of the latest revelations concerning Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was the Obama administration's Secretary of State.
One can't help but notice that almost no one else is making Napolitano's obviously valid points. If a Republican or conservative had done similar things on Mrs. Clinton's scale, establishment press reporters and pundits would be making them on a daily basis:

Comedian Bill Maher has a way with words.
Wednesday night, TV host Bill Maher appeared as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. While host Jimmy Kimmel announced Maher as nonpartisan critic, Maher appeared anything but – from calling Ted Cruz “evil” and diabolical” to deeming Marco Rubio a “dummy.”

Academic bias in favor of government is a real problem according to the professor who sounded the alarm on Flint, Michigan’s lead contamination crisis.
That Virginia Tech civil engineering professor, Marc Edwards, criticized academia for its reluctance to criticize government and decried what he called “perverse incentives” preventing academics from criticizing government agencies that fund their research.
