Proving he’s a liberal first and a comedian second, Stephen Colbert, who had a very friendly session last Friday with socialist Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, was more hostile on Monday night to the political positions of Republican presidential contender Senator Ted Cruz, whom he described as “far right.” Colbert pushed him to match Ronald Reagan by agreeing to raise taxes and offer amnesty before challenging him on gay marriage.

On Monday, ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News failed to devote a full story to Republican Governor Scott Walker (Wisc.) dropping out of the 2016 presidential campaign with the latter only giving Walker a combined 57 seconds at the beginning and end of a report on Ben Carson’s comments about a hypothetical president who was Muslim.

Whatever evil exists in the world, America must ultimately be at fault. That’s the tone of NBC’s series opener for “Blindspot.” The episode’s antagonist, a Chinese immigrant, blames America for being too free and too indifferent to the struggles in his homeland.

The media never misses a chance to portray law enforcement as trigger-happy and itching to use excessive force. In a scene plucked straight from the rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement, Officer Gordon draws his service weapon on a group of unarmed, hoodie-wearing looters as they attempt to abscond with a street vendor’s trinkets.

It’s not every night a viewer can tune into the pilot of a new series and watch a new dad placing a frozen medical glove into his wife’s hooha. But that is exactly what happened in the premiere of “Life in Pieces.”

Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of HLN’s Dr. Drew, is often seen on television as a calm and mild-mannered person, but that wasn’t the case on last Thursday’s show when he nearly had to cut his show short when a rude Black Lives Matter protester tried to hijack the program to push her agenda.

Hannibal’s gone, but there’s still plenty of horrifying content on television. Cox hinted in a Monday column that some of it’s on C-SPAN, courtesy of congressional Republicans.

Regarding a possible government shutdown over funding for Planned Parenthood, Cox asserted, “Forget shrinking government to the size it can be drowned in a bathtub, the politicians clamoring for another shutdown want government done away with in the most gruesome manner possible—perhaps those Planned Parenthood videos are the inspiration for their actions in more ways than one.”

It is a devastating, indisputable fact of history -- George W. Bush was president when jihadists murdered 3,000 people in the United States on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

For the liberals who loathed Bush during the 2000 campaign, and who then succumbed during the Florida recount to a chronic condition later diagnosed as Bush Derangement Syndrome, Bush's presence at the helm that horrific day is not damning enough. They vilify him by embellishing the truth of what came before it.

Appearing as a guest on Monday's New Day on CNN for a discussion of GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson's reluctance to elect a Muslim President, as well as Donald Trump's response to an anti-Muslim question, Haroon Moghul of Religion Dispatches seemed to make a tortured comparison between Muslim extremists inflaming anti-Muslim sentiment through committing terrorism and Israel inflaming anti-Jew sentiment by undertaking legitimate acts of self-defense.

Being an anchor on the Cable News Network has sent Anderson Cooper into many unusual situations -- including conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia and Rwanda -- but none of those experiences could have prepared him for what happened during a concert by popular singer Madonna Louise Ciccone in Brooklyn on Saturday night during her “Rebel Heart Tour.”

While singing a vulgarity-laced tune called “Unapologetic Bitch,” the pop star noticed Cooper in the audience at the Barclays Center and brought him onstage to take part in the routine with other male dancers.

Less than 36 hours ahead of his return to MSNBC after being dethroned as NBC Nightly News anchor for lying about stories he’s covered, The New York Post reported on Sunday night that Brian Williams is “already been causing trouble” at the ratings-deprived MSNBC. Writing for the paper’s Page Six section, Ian Mohr cited sources within the network that the disgraced Williams is “going to town at MSNBC” and “dictating personnel changes.”

On Monday, Catherine Lucey of the Associated Press played up how Bernie Sanders's supporters find his "grouchy persona" to be "one of his charms." Lucey touted how "Democratic imaginations and hearts are fired up by a white-haired 74-year-old socialist who is riding a populist surge." She also underlined how Sanders's backers "believe him when he bellows his unvarnished liberal message, pledging to work for single-payer health care, paid maternity leave and a higher minimum wage."

When analyzing news content on the nation’s Hispanic news media, it is helpful to remember that what is not covered is as important as what is covered, if not more so. This week’s papal visit to the United States provides us with another such instance.

Washington Post columnist Lonnae O’Neal wrote a column for the front of Monday’s Style section with the headline “A teen’s rant over Obama takes us to an ugly place.” Online, the headline was "Teen’s viral rant takes us deeper into 'The Twilight Zone.'" 

Her target was conservative teen YouTube sensation C.J. Pearson, now heading up Teens for Ted (Cruz). His latest video attacked Obama for saying nothing to Kate Steinle’s family after she was killed, or the families of soldiers shot dead at a Chattanooga recruiting station. It’s “ugly” to point this out, apparently.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota badgered and lectured Armstrong Williams, Ben Carson's business manager, on Monday's New Day over the Republican presidential candidate's Sunday statement that he "would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation." Camerota quoted Article VI of the U.S. Constitution regarding religious tests for public office, and contended that "Dr. Carson's belief system violates that part of the Constitution." She later accused the neurosurgeon of having a double standard regarding religion's role in public life.
