In covering President Obama’s refusal to refer to terrorism as Islamic extremism, CBS and NBC devoted portions of their reports on Thursday night to comments Rudy Giuliani made the day before with NBC reserving a majority of their airtime to attacking the former New York City Mayor for having “set off a war of words” and taking presidential criticism “to another level.” Andrea Mitchell declared he set off “a firestorm” over telling an audience that “I do not believe that the President loves America” and suggested that Giuliani went too far.

If you are persecuted in America for living your Christian faith, it's all your fault. At least that's what an expert at the Huffington Post Religion section claims in an odd piece that simultaneously acknowledges and denies the existence of concentrated anti-Christian sentiment in the United States.

The headline was “Christians to Blame for the 'War on Christianity'”. The author was Dale Hansen, a political blogger for the Detroit News.

It hasn't exactly been unexpected. In fact the probability it would happen has been reported on for weeks but today it's official. MSNBC has dumped the shows of Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid due to horrible ratings.

During Wednesday evening's edition of All In on MSNBC, host Chris Hayes attacked Bill O'Reilly and other anchors on the Fox News Channel for calling the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria a “holy war,” which is “exactly what ISIS wants.”

Hayes began the segment by stating: “The self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic state, Abu Baghdadi, and Fox News host Bill O'Reilly -- two very different men -- are in agreement on one very crucial point: There is a holy war being waged in the Middle East.”

In 2009, the satirical newspaper The Onion published a compilation entitled "Our Front Pages: 21 Years of Greatness, Virtue, and Moral Rectitude From America's Finest News Source." Editors chose, of all people, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams for the task of writing a foreward.

Time magazine editor-at-large and global-warming alarmist Jeffrey Kluger called on Facebook today to censor users who promote criticisms of vaccines, commonly known as anti-vaxxers. While Kluger is absolutely right to note that Facebook would be well within its rights to do so and that private-party censorship is not a First Amendment free-speech issue, Kluger's paternalistic lecturing and the logic undergirding it is quite telling.

Even the reliably liberal Time magazine is admitting the obvious: Joe Biden wouldn't get a pass for his creepy habit of putting his hands on women if he wasn't a Democrat. Writer  Karol Markowicz conceded, "The only reason Joe Biden gets away with getting handsy with women is because he has a (D) after his name."

Anderson Cooper spotlighted The Atlantic's Graeme Wood's thorough article on ISIS on his Wednesday program. Cooper wondered, "President Obama...said we're at war with people who have perverted Islam. The question, though, is: is that really true?" The anchor asked Wood about Mr. Obama's statement, and he gave a blunt reply: "Well, you know, he doesn't really have the authority to say that. I don't think any non-Muslim, really, has the authority to say that, or to convince others that that's the case."

The New York Times Magazine for Sunday carries an article by acclaimed novelist (and Columbia University professor) Gary Shteyngart. The Russian-born writer was hired by the Times for a media-watching stunt: “For the next week, I will subsist almost entirely on a diet of state-controlled Russian television, piped in from three Apple laptops onto three 55-inch Samsung monitors in a room at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan.” A sardonic caption describes the writer's "captivity" in the luxury hotel.

He mocked former Rep. Michelle Bachmann by describing her as "roughly equivalent" to clownish Russian "ultranationalist" politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

During an appearance on ABC’s The View Thursday morning, Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore hilariously mocked NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams following his suspension over lies he made about his reporting in Iraq. Asked if he would rather replace Jon Stewart or Brian Williams, Wilmore responded that while he would rather replace Stewart, “apparently fake news happens in both chairs nowadays.”

While all three network morning shows on Thursday covered President Obama defending his refusal to label terrorism as Islamic extremism during a Wednesday speech, only CBS This Morning actually pushed back on the President's argument.

Hardly a week passes that we don't learn of another mass execution committed in the Mideast by the medieval Islamist thugs in ISIS.

But did you know that Muslims children are being executed in the United States? It must be true because I heard it last night on "The Rachel Maddow Show" and, no, it didn't come from defrocked anchor Brian Williams.

George Stephanopoulos won an award for journalism? The former Democratic operative turned host of a show known for cat videos hyped his award for "excellence in broadcast journalism." Good Morning America's Amy Robach touted, "We can't help but give a big congratulations to one of our own. George took home the top award at last night's National Press Foundation Dinner."

On Wednesday, the Washington Post revealed that “[s]ince its creation in 2001, the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has raised close to $2 billion from a vast global network that includes corporate titans, political donors, foreign governments and other wealthy interests.” Despite the potential conflict of interest facing Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president in 2016, CBS This Morning gave the story a mere 20 seconds on its Thursday broadcast. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today ignored the story altogether.

Don’t worry liberals! Jon Stewart may be going, but a new “fake news” program is stepping in to tell you what to think, courtesy of the far-left Huffington Post.
