NBC and ABC on Thursday ignored the latest example of an illegal immigrant, who could have been deported, going on a crime spree. However, the networks both found time to cover the indictment of a Cincinnati cop for murder. Only CBS This Morning highlighted the disturbing rampage of Juan Emmanuel Razo. Gayle King explained, "...Another illegal from Mexico immigrant faces murder charges in the U.S. Police in Ohio say they stopped them weeks before the killing but they were told to let him go." Reporter Vladimir Duthiers noted that Razo was arrested on Monday, but "police in Ohio say they stopped him weeks earlier when immigration officials were notified of his undocumented status. There was nothing they could do."

News of a third Planned Parenthood hidden-camera video - the most gruesome to date - exploded all over the Internet earlier this week (a fourth video was released this morning). But those who depend on Univision for their news coverage wouldn’t know that, because so far the story has been entirely blacked out of both its early evening and late night national newscasts.

The latest video exposing the trafficking of aborted babies by Planned Parenthood showed workers casually laughing over and probing at pieces of a “baby” and “another boy.”
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a fourth investigative video July 30 showing Planned Parenthood executive, Dr. Savita Ginde, bartering over baby part pricing while admitting that the chances of providing intact organs are better if a woman “delivers before we get to see them.” The video showed Planned Parenthood workers laughing over “five-star” baby parts while trying not to “smush” them.

During Wednesday night’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart and liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin repeatedly slammed the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling which Goodwin called “the most poisonous thing that’s happening in our system.”

Last night on All In, Chris Hayes invited Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens to the program to discuss the videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. Seemingly not too concerned with the selling of fetal baby parts, Hayes wondered if there was “some sense” that the ‘reproductive health’ organization has “been infiltrated.”

It’s not surprising that the majority of actors and actresses in Hollywood are liberals. But the number of celebrities who go out of their way to support abortion rights and, in particular, Planned Parenthood, through PSAs, speaking engagements and finances is shocking. Here are 42 celebrities who have publicly supported the abortion giant.

On Thursday, CBS This Morning cheered Bernie Sanders’ “unconventional presidential campaign” as “evidence that a lot of little gatherings can add up to one massive crowd.”

Atheist, Democrat, professor and social critic—that’s Camille Paglia. But in a recent interview with Salon, she had some choice words for the liberal media.
In a discussion about Jon Stewart and his influence on the media, Paglia declared, “At what point will liberals wake up to realize the stranglehold that they had on the media for so long?”

This is fodder for WSJ columnist James Taranto's "everything is seemingly spinning out of control" file. Howard Dean has declared that we'll have to be "more humble" about Donald Trump's prospects and that he will "have to stop making fun" of him for now.
What's got Dean doing a 180 on Trump? Not just the latest polls, which include one showing Trump trouncing Jeb and Rubio in their home state of Florida. Above all, it was the experience of viewing, on today's Morning Joe, a stunning focus group of New Hampshire Republicans who were uniformly and enthusiastically pro-Trump, saying things like "honest; Reaganesque; one of us; we could be a proud America."
NYT's Jackie Calmes Unloads 16,000-Word Harvard Report on 'Conservative Media' Leading GOP to 'Far Right' Extremes (Part 1)By Clay Waters | July 30, 2015 | 8:59 AM EDT
New York Times national reporter Jackie Calmes spent a semester at the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University studying "conservative media," and this week issued an exhaustive 16,000-word report with the oh-so-objective title, "'They Don't Give a Damn about Governing' -- Conservative Media’s Influence on the Republican Party," blaming the "far right" for killing the moderate, pragmatic GOP, while dismissing the very idea of a liberal mainstream media.

The network media’s blackout of the IRS scandal continued on Wednesday night with zero mentions of the Senate hearing held hours before as well as a threat issued by a federal judge to hold IRS commissioner John Koskinen and Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys in contempt of court concerning Lois Lerner’s e-mails. As usual, FNC's Special Report provided coverage that the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision did not and led its Wednesday show with a full story from chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel.

On his Tuesday night show, with the help of Kelly Riddell of the Washington Times, Bill O'Reilly of Fox News described how the "Black Lives Matter" movement sustains itself. The rest of the press wants readers, listeners and viewers to presume that it is a self-sustaining, grass-roots movement. It isn't.
O'Reilly also noted that megastars Jay-Z and Beyoncé, numbers 28 and 29, respectively, on the Forbes list of top-paid celebrities, are supporting the movement, which describes itself as "grass-roots" but is really the ultimate in Astroturf. Also at the end of this post, following up on one I did on ESPN's Stephen A. Smith last week, I have posted Smith's original six-minute radio-show rant on how selective and tyrannical the movement is.

During an appearance on Wednesday’s edition of The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel (FNC), Media Research Center Brent Bozell and host Megyn Kelly eviscerated the media for their double standard in rushing to cover unsubstantiated rape allegations surrounding 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump but not, among others, the Bill Clinton-Juanita Brodderick case.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews has failed to cover all three of the Planned Parenthood fetal-parts videos that have been released this month. But tonight he found time for a segment on the latest development in Deflategate and devoted his closing Let Me Finish commentary to denouncing the Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe.
