Admit it. When you read the title of this story you probably thought Chris Matthews was being sarcastic in his praise of Donald Trump. However when you view the video below of Matthews speaking at the Ideas Forum in Washington, D.C. yesterday, you can see he is absolutely sincere. Of course, to maintain his liberal bonafides he quickly tosses something in about supposed Trump nonsense but the rest of the clip sounds like it could be used in a Trump campaign commercial. In fact Matthews was so effusive in his praise of Trump in contrast to the political class that you might have to play the video twice to make sure you heard what you thought you heard the first time.

On the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s All In, liberal host Chris Hayes trumpeted the need for gun control measures after the deadly community college shooting in Roseburg, Oregon by comparing the impediment to enact such policies to the “scale of the response” the world deployed during the 2014 outbreak of the Ebola virus.

Appearing Friday morning on the Fox Business Network's Varney & Co. program, MRC president Brent Bozell blasted disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams, who now covers breaking news on MSNBC, for immediately injecting a liberal gun control agenda into coverage of the Oregon college shooting on Thursday.

Bozell called it "obnoxious" and "offensive" for the media to push for liberal action without waiting for the facts, and saw a media double standard in the cheers for President Obama's choice to "politicize" the shooting, even as journalists condemned Rep. Kevin McCarthy earlier this week for allegedly politicizing the Benghazi inquiry.

The September jobs report turned out to be a disappointment with fewer than anticipated jobs gains and labor force participation at its lowest rate since October of 1977.

CNBC’s Squawk Box discussion of the disappointing report quickly turned to Federal Reserve policy and whether it vindicated the Fed’s decision not to raise rates, or just proved they missed their chance to do so.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Friday repeatedly lectured an Oregon sheriff, demanding John Hanlin rethink his support for the Second Amendment in the wake of a shooting at a community college in that state.  Citing the White House, the New Day anchor grilled, “What do you think of what President Obama just said that we are fooling ourselves and we're not caring about each other if we continue to ignore the role of guns in these crimes?” Repeatedly, the Douglas County sheriff tried to focus on the victims and the investigation. Cuomo kept reiterating, “In your mind, do you believe that we're a law away from this not having happened?”

Friday’s CBS This Morning offered extensive coverage of the deadly shooting on Thursday at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, but one of the segments took a broader, sappy look at pushing gun control through the lens of President Obama’s “evolving anger” on the inability to pass gun control measures through Congress where he’s found “little” of any “hope and change.”

The journalists on the Today show, Friday, touted how “emotional” Barack Obama became in his push for more gun control. In the wake of a mass shooting in Oregon, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie cited statistics from liberal organizations and allowed no conservative, pro-Second Amendment voices to appear on the show.

Perhaps the only anti-gun blowhard less surprising than Geraldo Rivera after a mass shooting is ex-CNN host Piers Morgan, still prattling on about how his biased journalism in Britain stopped school shootings for good in the UK.

In the London Daily Mail, Morgan emptied out a thesaurus of synonyms for evil on the National Rifle Association, claiming like Ed Schultz that they love it when people get shot to death on campus:

As part of a piece on Friday’s CBS This Morning about the opening of the first freestanding Chick-fil-a in New York City, correspondent Vladimir Duthiers couldn’t help but harp on the company’s conservative Christian values and how they had to supposedly draw customers back “in 2012 when those values ran afoul of public sentiment” after “CEO Dan Cathy affirmed his support for tradition marriage.”

Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera went on a Facebook rant within hours of the mass shooting in Oregon. America is a “gun sick nation,” and Second Amendment “BS” aside, he wrote, “the gun lobby controls the country, and allows armed maniacal lunatics to roam free and kill.”

By Friday morning, Rivera was egging on President Obama to get tougher on the National Rifle Association: “You blame the gun lobby? Why not take them on? Confront the NRA and call out every hack who ever took money from them.”

Sports Illustrated’s Peter King has handed down yet another 140 character edict in the wake of yet another shooting. Why is the person charged with writing about football, on a night when the Ravens and Steelers play, writing about mass shootings? Because shut up, that’s why.

As promised in this interview with the show’s creator, Peter Nowalk has every intention to use gay sex scenes as a battering ram on the viewers of ABC's 'How to Get Away with Murder," advancing his premise that America must be shocked awake. You are a prude, America, and Mr. Nowalk intends for you to loosen up! A new twist this year includes a lesbian relationship for Annalise (Viola Davis) with her former girlfriend. Surprise! Annalise is bisexual.

The always shameless uber-lefty blogger Charles Pierce of Esquire was a guest on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s The Last Word and in the course of discussing the deadly community college shooting in Oregon earlier in the day, admitted that he’s “politicizing the hell out of this” shooting and “I don’t care.” The former Boston Globe writer declared that the Republican Party “is completely insane” and doesn’t apparently believe in regulations for mines, fixing roads, federal assistance after natural disasters or keeping people safe.

On Thursday's The Nightly Show on Comedy Central, host Larry Wilmore skewered President Barack Obama in the aftermath of Russia undermining the President's Syria policy by bombing the Syrian rebels Obama has been supporting.

The Comedy Central host reminded viewers that Obama had mocked Mitt Romney in 2012 when the GOP presidential candidate warned that Russia would be one of America's greatest foreign policy problems, as Wilmore referred to Obama's cocky dismissal of Romney as "near-sighted snobbery," and played a clip of the exchange with Romney.

Religious double standards on the front of Thursday's New York Times: "The Pope, the Clerk and Culture Wars Revisited." During his U.S. tour, the Times celebrated Pope Francis's liberal tone on economic, environmental, and immigration issues. But when he reaffirmed his belief in religious freedom (and the Church's opposition to gay marriage) by secretly meeting with Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who went to jail instead of issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, the Times adopted a puzzled, chiding tone, fretting that the Pope was reigniting the U.S. "culture war."
