The taxpayer-funded abortion giant has “patriarchy” to thank for exposing its dealings, according to CNN’s Sally Kohn.

On Twitter Wednesday, the CNN political commentator and Daily Beast writer blamed the recent videos showing Planned Parenthood executives trafficking aborted babies’ parts on the “patriarchy” and “white supremacy.” She claimed the videos had to be “edited” because “facts alone not on their side [sic].”

The Planned Parenthood sting videos are "house of horrors stuff" and yet the liberal media outlets barely reported the first one and all but ignored the second, Media Research Center founder and For America chairman Brent Bozell told Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney today on his eponymous Varney & Co. program.

ABC's Nightline, a once serious news show, has ignored the scandal involving Planned Parenthood allegedly profiting from selling body parts of aborted babies. However, the same program has eagerly covered such irrelevant topics as "cat poo coffee" and the Bachlorette being "unapologetic about her sexuality." On July 17, Juju Chang opened the show with this breaking news: "You might be surprised where the world's most expensive coffee come from. If we told you it was a delicacy people pay hundred for, would you sip on some cat poo coffee? Inside the exotic new business."

As of Wednesday morning, NPR's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the second undercover video of a Planned Parenthood executive revealing how the organization varies its abortion procedures in order to preserve the organs of unborn babies for medical research. Instead, Tuesday's All Things Considered spotlighted a March 2014 incident where the adult son of a pro-life activist vandalized an abortionist's office in rural Montana.

During a live press conference in the 12:00 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday about the Chattanooga shooting, CNN reporter Aaron Cooper asked FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold: “There's been reports that there were some personal or privately owned weapons used in responding to the shooter....Did anybody hit anyone else? Was there any friendly fire incident?”

Barack Obama outrageously denied there was anything scandalous about the IRS-Tea Party controversy in his Tuesday interview on The Daily Show as he lectured Jon Stewart that: “When there was that problem with the I.R.S. everybody jumped, including you...you got this back office and they’re going after the Tea Party. Well it turned out no.” Obama went on to assert “the truth of the matter is there was not some big conspiracy there.”

All three networks on Wednesday hyped Barack Obama's final appearance on The Daily Show, but it was CBS that offered the most nostalgic coverage. This Morning's Vladimir Duthiers reminisced: "Like two old friends just enjoying each other's company, Tuesday night, Jon Stewart and President Obama both reflected on the approaching conclusion of their careers." He hyped a clip of Obama gushing: "I'm issuing a new executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show." Co-host Gayle King was amused: "This morning President Obama has a plan to make Jon Stewart stay put."

So sad. A Canadian arctic research expedition to study "climate change" (always meaning global warming) has been derailed. Why? Heavy ice. However, readers of the CBC News account of the story are left in the dark as to the exact nature of the expedition that is not to be this year. Fortunately, a quick search has turned up a Daily Kos Kossack who is a member of that attempted expedition who was happily chirping out what it is all about last Thursday.

Here is the CBC report that tells what happened to the Canadian Coast guard cutter without telling us what the expedition was about:

On Wednesday, all three network morning shows proclaimed that Donald Trump was making it “nearly impossible” for any other 2016 Republican candidates to get any media attention. On NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer declared: “Donald Trump remains the talk of the presidential race with some new antics on the campaign trail. And it's making it hard for any of the fifteen other Republicans to get any attention...”

NewsBusters readers likely are familiar with the saying “It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.” Conor Friedersdorf thinks Republicans have a propensity for certitude about false beliefs, and that as a result they’re susceptible to “demagogues” such as Donald Trump.

As for why GOPers are frequently mistaken in the first place, Friedersdorf blames, among others, “huckster entertainers like [Rush] Limbaugh.” He also notes that speaking truth to the party base “would be an unpleasant ordeal for most figures in the conservative movement.”

Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday scoffed at a claim by John Kasich that he would care about the interests of African Americans. The new presidential candidate appeared on GMA and asserted, "...If you're black, if you're brown, if you're struggling, we care about you and we're going to work to make sure you're included in the American dream." A suspicious Stephanopoulos responded: "You think your party is ready to accept that message?"

On Tuesday, CBS Evening News promoted a new study by global warming alarmist and NASA’s former climate chief James Hansen that predicts a “dire forecast about the climate in the years ahead.” Fill-in host Charlie Rose introduced the broadcast by fretting “[a]n ominous forecast for more scenes likes this, surging floodwaters and rising sea levels.”

Acts of terror marked the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Terrorists cut a bloody path from Tennessee to Tunisia -- one that commanded much of the broadcast network’s attention. Only newscasts often ignored the religious timing of the threats by Muslim terrorists.

The Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which declared a Middle East “caliphate” a year ago on June 29, 2014, strongly encouraged violence during the Muslim holy month. Reuters and The Telegraph (UK) reported on June 23, that an ISIS spokesman called for Muslims to make Ramadan “a month of calamity for the infidels.” The “infidels” include non-Muslims and westerners, but also Shiite Muslims and those ISIS called “apostate Muslims.” Al-Shabaab, another Islamic extremist group, threatened Kenya’s non-Muslims even before Ramadan began, All Africa reported.
