When it comes to gun control, Univision has typically been right in sync with the rest of the nation’s major broadcast networks, which is to say, it has consistently advocated for expanded restrictions on legal gun ownership.Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, in fact, has consistently argued against the individual right to keep and bear arms.

CNN's Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and Alisyn Camerota stuck to the left's spin about the results of the 2014 midterm elections on Thursday's CNN Tonight, as they discussed President Obama's Wednesday press conference. Lemon wondered, "Why do people vote against their own interests? Because if you look at West Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas...they put mostly Republicans in office...But they are the states that are benefiting the most from the Affordable Care Act."

Climate deniers apparently have a simple, albeit crass, message for the world: “We don’t know what the f*** we’re talking about.”

At least, that’s what Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” and soon-to-be host of CBS’s “Late Show,” said during his show Nov. 6, 2014. Colbert was mocking Senator Jim Inhofe, R-Okla, who will soon become chairman of the Senate U.S. Environment and Public Works Committee.

On Friday CNBC’s Ron Insana and Fox Business News’s Charles Gasparino engaged in a Twitter fight that included cheap shots like “you will always be a fat slob i’d smack u silly but it wld be considered child abuse” from Gasparino and comebacks from Insana like: “you shall remain a single-source shill for whomever whispers in your ear. As for the smack down, not worried.”

Over at Politico, Kevin Robillard devoted a story on November 7 to the matter of "How Larry Hogan won in Maryland." But throughout the story, Robillard weaved a narrative that almost if not completely pooh-poohed the idea that the Anne Arundel County businessman had anything to do with his Tuesday night victory. Instead,he noted, the credit goes in large part to Hogan luckily running in a Republican wave year and the Democrats making key tactical blunders on the campaign trail.

Oscar Wilde famously wrote about a Dickens character: “One must have a heart of stone to read the death of little Nell without laughing.” And you’d have to have a heart of stone not to read the post-election tweets of liberal celebrities without at least a schadenfreude-tastic giggle.

 Really, Hollywood’s election reaction has rarely been more entertaining. Daily Show writer Lizz Winstead moaned, “Republicans win control of your body.” Bette Midler tweeted bitterly, “We can look forward to unregulated banks, no health care, filthy air and oceans, and WAR, WAR, AND MORE WAR. Thanks, folks!” 

 Now here comes Lucas Neff, star of Fox’s “Raising Hope,” whose post-election tweets prove he’s second to none in the Celebrity Chicken Little Sweepstakes.

"Md. looks for clues to what Hogan will do," blared the Metro section front-page headline in Friday's Washington Post. But rather than examine what the average Joe or Jane Marylander thinks about the Republican governor-elect, the Post's Jenna Johnson and John Wagner turned to reliably left-wing interest groups for their thoughts and fears about an administration that is likely to be considerably more conservative than the Democratic one on the way out the door.

The delusion is strong with this one.

On Friday's Morning Joe program on what remains of MSNBC, Al Sharpton, completely ignoring how late appearances in Maryland and Illinois by President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle coincided with significant deterioration in the situations of Democratic Party gubernatorial candidates in Maryland and Illinois, blamed Bill and Hillary Clinton, and not the Obamas, for Tuesday's Democratic debacle.

At the conclusion of her MSNBC show on Thursday night, Rachel Maddow was absolutely beside herself over the fact that Republicans made massive gains in state legislatures across the country and excoriated Democrats for appearing to have no such strategy or interest in winning seats on the state level.

Following Tuesday’s midterm elections, Republicans gained a total of 310 seats in states from coast to coast and, by Wednesday, the GOP completely controlled 30 of the 50 state legislatures in the country (by early next year) with Democrats having less than ten now to their credit.

Using a spin no one in the liberal chattering class would imagine, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat compared Wendy Davis to Delaware’s Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell. Both were ideologically mismatched with the states they were running in, but O’Donnell’s victory was a political shocker.

Douthat said the media's bias on culture-war issues can lead to "fond delusions" like Wendy Davis could win in a red state on a pro-abortion platform.

In a report for Friday's NBC Today, White House correspondent Kristen Welker continued the network's effort to preemptively blame Republicans for any gridlock that may occur in Washington following the GOP's landslide win in Tuesday's midterm election: "Republicans have drawn their own battle lines, doubling down on their pledge to repeal the President's signature piece of legislation, ObamaCare, and vowing to approve the Keystone Pipeline, which the President has resisted."

On November 5, Judicial Watch announced that the IRS admitted “that it failed to search any of the IRS standard computer systems for the ‘missing’ emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials.” The admission comes after the government watchdog group made a “request that a federal court judge allow discovery into how ‘lost and/or destroyed’ IRS records relating to the targeting of conservative groups may be retrieved.” So how many networks stories have been dedicated to this latest revelation in the IRS scandal? 0.

Clay Aiken lost in a landslide in his campaign for a congressional seat from North Carolina yet he is overjoyed. Why? Because it is now apparent that winning was besides the point for Aiken. His real goal now appears to be a TV reality show as announced in Poltico. Unfortunately for reality show wannabee Clay his celebrity donors in Los Angeles feel as if they have been duped by the former "American Idol" contestant and are demanding that footage of their September 30 fundraiser not be used in the reality show.

For years, liberal journalists have been predicting Republican doom with Hispanics, declaring that rage from the growing ethnic population would result in a permanent GOP minority. NBC's Matt Lauer, for instance, wondered if the severe "damage" could be repaired. Yet, the Republican landslide on Tuesday was powered, in part, by a strong showing with Latinos. So far, this has been met with disinterest from the three networks.

This is the real “War on Women.” 

Iraqi News reported Nov. 3 on an ISIS document that listed the prices at which to sell Yazidi and Christian women and children abducted by the terrorist group. Citing economic reasons, ISIS listed the worth of a young woman at $85, of girl at $128, of a child – as young as a year old – at $171. Only a few media outlets covered the story. The feminist media didn’t , maybe because free contraceptives weren’t at issue.
