Media Research Center president Brent Bozell called on NBC to formally apologize for the outrageous "killing spree" statement that network correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin made on the January 29 edition of Morning Joe. Of course, Mohyeldin's nasty anti-American comments should come as no surprise, Bozell reminded host Megyn Kelly, noting how the Palestinian journalist got his start in major-network journalism.

The U.S. Senate took the step Thursday of approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline in a bipartisan fashion by a margin of 62-to-36, with nine Democrats joining 53 Republicans to pass it for the first time after failing to do so under the previous Congress.
When the major English and Spanish language networks aired their Thursday evening newscasts, however, the news of the bill’s passage was nowhere to be found. Not a single second of coverage on Keystone appeared on English language networks ABC, CBS, and NBC in addition to Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision.

For a guy who is forever hearing "dog whistles" and racially-tinged "code words" in conservative political rhetoric, Hardball host Chris Matthews seems blissfully unaware of the arguably anti-Semitic prattle he spewed tonight in his criticism of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address the U.S. Congress on March 3.

The perpetual battle for last place in the cable “news” channels took an interesting turn on Thursday, when the Cable News Network took out a full-page advertisement in the New York Times claiming that while MSNBC's Morning Joe program was “leaning forward” -- a reference to that channel's motto -- CNN's New Day show was “moving ahead!”
“SORRY, JOE,” the title glared before the text below bragged: “In January, CNN's New Day beat MSNBC's Morning Joe for the 4th month in a row in total viewers and the 7th month in a row” among adults in the critical demographic of viewers from 25 to 54 years of age.

A furious Ed Schultz on Thursday raged over the fact that only 36 Senate Democrats opposed the Keystone pipeline in a vote. Nine defections contributed to the bill passing the Senate. Schultz sneered, “But what a sad moment for Democrats if they're concerned about climate change…The Democrats can be bought.”

Hardball host Chris Matthews used a panel discussion about President Obama's attorney-general nominee Loretta Lynch on his Wednesday program as a convenient opportunity to slander conservative Republicans as seeking to repress the vote of Democratic constituencies in major cities.

On her Thursday MSNBC show, host Andrea Mitchell was aghast at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreeing to speak before a joint session of Congress during an upcoming U.S. visit without consulting the Obama administration: "The White House is furious, furious at Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu and also a little bit angry at Speaker Boehner for inviting Netanyahu to speak before Congress, to a joint meeting of Congress without even consulting the administration – protocol would dictate that."

Before he signed up to play Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in American Sniper, Bradley Cooper put on weight, studied with a voice coach, and learned to put a bullet into a target from 800 yards away. But he told People magazine the most lasting lessons he learned were about the struggles of everyday military families.
"I had an appreciation for veterans before this, but what I definitely did not know is the toll that it takes on the family," the Best Actor Oscar nominee said. “People were willing to express themselves in a format that they would never do normally....But because they saw Chris’s story, they were willing to say, ‘Thank you for putting a guy I can relate to up there and have it be something right away that I know is accurate.'”

Mankind really has it in for polar bears, at least according to the left. Liberal media have spent years claiming mankind was killing the cute little man-eating monsters by destroying their homes with global warming.
Now, the liberal eco-blog Grist has announced the latest painful assault on the cuddly environmental icons. The Jan. 27 headline said it all in surprisingly personal detail: "We are literally breaking polar bear penises now."

While the upcoming Superbowl ads count on puppies and scantily clad women for views, Pampers is counting on something infinitely more precious: babies – both born and unborn.

Alan Colmes ran to the defense of the Obama administration on Thursday's Imus in the Morning on Fox Business over their deliberate avoidance of using the term "radical Islam." Producer Bernard McGuirk took a shot at the White House, asserting that "we should say 'Islamic extremism,' because by not saying it is not going to appease anybody." Colmes repeatedly underlined, "It's not Islam," and claimed that the administration's strategy "makes it less dangerous, because you're not going after an entire religion."

On January 9, Washington Post political writer Ben Terris profiled conservative Sen. James Inhofe and described him as “the country’s most prominent climate-change denier.” A headline announced “Senate’s top climate-change denier is flying high.”
Twenty days later, Terris is shamelessly profiling a liberal senator as terrific presidential material. The headline was “Why Isn’t He Feeling A Draft? Ohio’s Sherrod Brown was Elizabeth Warren before Warren was a Democratic rock star. But don’t bet on him being progressives’ standard-bearer in 2016.” He tweeted approvingly that Ralph Nader agreed with him.
