Over the past 9 days, ABC News has spent a grand total of 46 seconds on Planned Parenthood executives trying to sell pieces of aborted babies for a profit. Yet, ABC’s Good Morning America on July 23, found 2 minutes to discuss how a beauty pageant contestant might be posing a threat to sharks.

The press's favorite abortion questions usually have nothing to do with the 700,000-plus terminations of preborn babies' lives which take place each year in the U.S. (Note: The real figure is likely quite higher, because reporting is voluntary.) Especially when the person interviewed is a Republican or conservative, abortion questions focus heavily on the fewer than 1% of all abortions which are performed because of rape and incest. This is the equivalent of a news organization focusing all of its attention on a single house fire while an entire city a few miles away burns out of control.

2016 GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina had no interest in playing this game with Jake Tapper on Tuesday. In the process, she put on a clinic which should be mandatory viewing for any Republican or conservative who is in or wants to have a career in politics.

Liberal Hollywood might try to silence Christian and conservative voices but it doesn’t always succeed. To be heard, Christian and conservative actors and athletes have used their platforms on Facebook and Twitter to “come out,” so to speak, on hot-button topics.  

After the release of two damning videos showcasing the casual bartering of aborted baby parts by Planned Parenthood representatives, actress Stacey Dash, actor Kevin Sorbo and NFL player Benjamin Watson lambasted the taxpayer-funded abortion giant on Twitter.

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s stand in favor of the American worker has earned him a direct attack on MundoFox. Following Santorum’s campaign announcement, MundoFox dedicated a full segment of its national newscast to an analysis of Santorum’s position on the relation between U.S. immigration policy, jobs and salaries in the labor market.

According to multiple sources, MSNBC will soon announce the cancellation of The Cycle, its 3pm EDT show. A look back on the extremely low-rated program finds a mix of 9/11 truther conspiracy theories and confused/angry liberalism. Toure famously questioned whether the 9/11 terror attacks could have been an inside job. One entry on Twitter: "How could a plane crash into the Pentagon? And not appear on video cameras?? And leave little wreckage??? #Don'tbuyitfiremenow."

Despite the revelation on Wednesday that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) made secret side deals with Iran over nuclear weapons inspections and refused to disclose the details to the U.S. Congress, NBC, ABC, and CBS all ignored the story. By contrast, FNC’s Special Report led with the news as anchor Bret Baier informed viewers “there is word tonight of a separate covert deal between the Islamic Republic and the U.N.’s nuclear team. Two of them, in fact, that are not going to be shared with members of Congress nor with you.”

Last night on The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly slammed the Obama Administration for refusing to “take seriously” those who have raised concerns about illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. The Fox News personality explained: “That’s the message 24 hours after a half dozen witnesses went before Congress to testify about this issue. Many were families who lost loved ones at the hands of illegal immigrants. All of them begging Washington for some help.”

After playing a clip from Jim Steinle, father of murdered San Francisco native Kate Steinle, Kelly declared: “Well, that last person was Mr. Steinle, the father of Kate Steinle, whose daughter was allegedly shot by an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record who should have been deported and was repeatedly, but instead, he had been put back on the street because of sanctuary cities policies in the city of San Francisco.”

In a Huffington Post article, Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) executive director Janson Wu preached, “One of the fundamental reasons why people are prejudiced against gay people is because they are uncomfortable with the idea of two people of the same sex having sex.” How do we reform this? By normalizing gay sex and sharing it with children, of course.

Liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio sat down for a friendly interview on Thursday’s CBS This Morning and the three hosts repeatedly pushed him from the left on a variety of issues ranging from his fight with Uber to his relationship with Pope Francis on climate change and income inequality. Charlie Rose complained: ”It seems like Uber whenever it's challenged simply gets its way in the end.”

In a July 20 Fox News Special Report, Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume “laid bare the essentially brutal nature of abortion.” And he did it well. 

His commanding denouncement of the industry followed the July 14 release of “stomach-turning” Planned Parenthood videos, which showed officials coolly discussing the traffic of fetal body parts while eating lunch.   

“Those revelations … have parted the veil of antiseptic tidiness behind which the abortion industry has for so long operated,” Hume declared.

Ouch: this one's going to leave a mark.  Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton has said that "John Kerry acted like Pontius Pilate, he washed his hands" on crucial issues in the Iran deal and left it to the IAEA to negotiate secret side deals with Iran on them.

Cotton made his remarks on today's Morning Joe.  It might be a mark of the regard, or lack thereof, in which Kerry is held that no one on the panel rose to his defense.  Harold Ford, Jr. was given the floor immediately after Cotton spoke, and blithely inquired only if Kerry would be asked about these issues in his Senate testimony. A bit later in the show, Dem Sen. Tim Kaine appeared.  Kaine presumably either watched or was briefed on Cotton's statement, but made not a peep to push back on the Pontius Pilate analogy.

Earlier today, Geoffrey Dickens at NewsBusters noted how the Big Three morning network news shows on NBC, ABC, and CBS failed to cover President Barack Obama's denial that the Internal Revenue Service ever went after Tea Party and other conservative groups in his appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Specifically Obama said that "it turned out no ... the truth of the matter is there was not some big conspiracy there ... the real scandal around the I.R.S. right now is that it has been so poorly funded."

Following the lead of the Associated Press, whose Josh Lederman completely ignored Obama load of IRS-related horse manure, the same crowd which spent years screaming about how "Bush Lied" about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq — he didn't lie, period; even the left has to agree, thanks to the New York Times, that it's no longer arguable — has remained notoriously silent about Obama's claim.

What you know you want to see, but didn’t want to spend two hours to catch: Ann Coulter’s scenes in Wednesday night’s SyFy channel debut of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! She’s the Vice President serving with the President played by Mark Cuban. A tour de force.

It’s been a little over two months since Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz sat down with Bloomberg Politics co-host Mark Halperin in what became known as one of the most cringe-worthy interviews of Halperin’s career.  During the interview, Halperin audaciously asked Cruz his favorite Cuban dish, music, and even commented on the fact that his last name “Cruz” should be enough for Hispanic appeal.

New York Times reporter Jackie Calmes managed to write a 1,500-word story on David Daleiden, who runs the pro-life group that conducted damning undercover interviews with Planned Parenthood executives about harvesting baby organs, without once mentioning the actual contents of the vide.Calmes warned: "Democrats said they were counting on Republicans to overreach with their attacks -- inciting a backlash from women, younger voters and political independents who support Planned Parenthood -- and then retreat, as has happened before."
