Banfield moments later took aim at those who oppose more gun laws:

CNN wasn't interested in balance on Tuesday, as three straight programs brought on pro-euthanasia activists to tout California's new "End of Life Option Act," which was signed into law on Monday. All three also left out opponents of the legislation. CNN Newsroom featured a man whose wife was the subject of a HBO documentary titled How to Die in Oregon. On At This Hour, Kate Bolduan hyped the "groundbreaking move," and interviewed a "right to die advocate" with terminal cancer. Legal View turned to the widower of pro-euthanasia activist Brittany Maynard, who took her life in November 2014.

"Tonight for the interview ..." -- or The Interview as this species of schmooze is known on The Rachel Maddow Show -- "we've got a sitting Supreme Court justice," trumpeted Maddow on her program Friday night. "What?! Yes! ... It is very rare for Justice Breyer to do an interview but we have got that here tonight."

Halfway through the show, Maddow made another plug for The Interview -- "There are nine justices on the Supreme Court. Contrary to popular impression, the nine life-tenured members of the United States Supreme Court  -- they are human. They are people. That said, that doesn't mean you can talk to them. Except tonight we can. Tonight an interview with sitting Supreme Court justice Stephen Breyer. Seriously."

Pointing out inconvenient truths that liberals dislike is a sight rarely seen on the network news. But Tuesday’s CBS This Morning featured a nearly-five minute segment on just how wasteful and pointless certain types of recycling can be. New York Times science writer John Tierney appeared and explained, “We have this weird obsession with recycling everything....
