MSNBC hosts on Friday jumped at the chance to bash former President George W. Bush over his handling of Hurricane Katrina on the 10th anniversary of the storm that ravaged the gulf coast. On NewsNation, host Tamron Hall proclaimed: “Many have said, including writer Douglas Brinkley and others, that this was the stain on his presidency that he could never recover from.”

During a discussion on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s The Last Word, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof briefly admitted that gun control would not have stopped the shooter who shot dead two local news reporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Wednesday, but continued to nonetheless argue that more gun restrictions are needed. He let slip that “you know, it may well be that no measure could have prevented the killer in this case from actually acquiring that gun.”

Not even in the wake of the sickening Planned Parenthood videos will the broadcast networks dare to criticize Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

During their news shows, ABC, NBC and CBS ignored a press conference against Margaret Sanger held in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. During the event, black pastors and other pro-life leaders demanded the removal of a Margaret Sanger bust – a bust they called “revisionist propaganda” – from a Struggle for Justice exhibit inside the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.

The Washington Post is celebrating the gender-blurring agenda again. Friday’s positive transgender freakout came on the front of the Style section, simply titled “BARF BABES.” Music writer Chris Richards profiled Barf Troop, an “outsider ‘gender-fluid’ hop-hop group that formed on Tumblr” and its leader, “Babeo Baggins.”

Richards oozed that their music can be "exponentially affirming" when people like it.

Sarah Palin let fly with a near dissertation-length slamming of ESPN Friday morning for their suspension of Curt Schilling earlier in the week.

Schilling had tweeted a graphic comparing the number of Muslim extremists in the world today to the number of Nazi extremists in Germany in 1940. Though, the tweet was distorted by the MSM to make it appear as though Schilling was comparing all Muslims to Nazis, resulting in Schilling’s suspension.

After Thursday’s network morning shows chose to ignore a finding in the latest Quinnipiac poll that voters most associate the word “liar” with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, ABC’s World News Tonight that evening and Friday’s NBC Today finally mentioned the survey. CBS continued to avoid the topic.

Emily Smith of the New York Post’s Page Six reports that MSNBC scaled back its coverage of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina because Brian Williams “misremembered” that he saw a dead body float past his hotel while he was there.

Since MSNBC ended up with Williams as a breaking news anchor with no assigned program as a fall-back after his wild exaggerations cost him his Nightly News anchor job, decided not to send any key anchors to New Orleans, enabling them to avoid awkward references to the Williams scandal

Al Sharpton’s weekday program PoliticsNation will move to Sunday mornings starting in September, and the folks on Morning Joe gushed at the new opportunities this would give the MSNBC host. Joe Scarborough called Sharpton’s move “happy news” and eagerly told Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd “It's a perfect tee up for chuck Todd...You have a strong lead in now. You’ve got a strong number three hitter for your cleanup fourth.”

Rowan Blanchard is a 13 year old girl who also happens to be a Disney star – oh, and she also just penned an essay on “intersectional feminism” that has Harry Potter actress and fellow feminist Emma Watson fawning over.

"Issues that are commonly thought of as feminist issues include sexual assault, rape, abortion, Planned Parenthood, domestic violence, equal education, and the wage gap," she wrote. "Feminists have also adopted marriage equality and gay/lesbian rights as their issue which is wonderful."

On the Friday morning network newscasts, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today showed no interest in picking up on an ABC News report that former President Bill Clinton sought approval from his wife’s State Department for speeches that involved African dictators and North Korea with the speaking fee for the former engagement worth $650,000.

Isn’t it funny how anti-religion liberal elitists are so quick to blame Christianity when a Christian messes up, as if the failure to live up to an ideal is the ideal’s fault.

Yesterday HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps and guest, entertainment journalist Dayvee Sutton, commented on the continuing Duggar drama. According to a statement released by the Duggar family, the married man and father of four children recently decided to check himself into a long-term treatment center after being the subject of two major scandals this year.

On Friday’s Morning Joe, Bloomberg Politics managing editor Mark Halperin strongly condemned Hillary Clinton’s decision to compare Republican politicians to terrorists over the issue of abortion. Halperin did not mince words when he repudiated the Democratic frontrunner's language and argued that “[i]f a Republican did this the world would come to a halt.”

So who's Hillary's enforcer? Last week we asked "who got to Donny Deutsch?" when he suddenly became supportive of Hillary whereas just the week before he had been very critical of her.

The same thing has happened with Ed Rendell.  Just yesterday, the former DNC Chairman and Pennsylvania governor was quoted in the New York Times saying Hillary has handled the email scandal "poorly, maybe atrociously, certainly horribly." But on today's Morning Joe, Ed was suddenly singing a different tune, claiming Hillary is doing everything right and plaintively suggesting that there is no problem. That led Mark Halperin to observe "I'm not saying he woke up with a horse head in bed with him," but "he was contacted . . . by what we like to call Clinton associates."

After eight videos exposing Planned Parenthood from the pro-lifers at the Center for Medical Progress, NPR’s Diane Rehm Show devoted an hour Thursday morning to.....”New Tactics In the Anti-Abortion Movement.” Not the tactics of Planned Parenthood, those aren’t going to be the subject.

The guest panel was stacked with two “objective” journalists both questioning these tactics, along with Terry O’Neill of NOW and Carol Tobias of the National Right to Life Committee. Then the show is further tilted by....the callers. Diane Rehm’s producers couldn’t find one pro-life caller in the entire hour.

On Thursday, the CBS Evening News seized on the deadly shooting of two local news reporters in Roanoke, Virginia to promote the idea that gun control should be treated like “a public health issue” akin to seat belts, airbags, and anti-smoking campaigns. In a tease early on in the program, fill-in anchor Maurice DuBois explained that “[s]ome public health officials say gun violence, just like car accidents and smoking-related illnesses can be prevented or at least reduced.”
