Someone really should come up with a typesetter’s font for when our liberal betters to use when forced to write about things they disdain. We could call it “Helvetica Sneer,” and it would save busy cosmopolitan authors a lot of time and trouble.

Megyn Kelly may be keeping her options open about moving to a different network at some point in the future, but there is a point where obnoxious liberal questions still move her to defend the fort at Fox News. Time writer Phillip Elliott, a former Associated Press reporter, recently discovered that when he quoted Bill Maher to Kelly, suggesting she's the "sane one" when everyone else at Fox is “a zombie or a dwarf or sleeping with their sister.”
Elliott asked: "Last summer Bill Maher made a joke about you. 'We think Megyn Kelly is the sane one over there at Fox News. That's because she's surrounded by Hannity and O'Reilly. She's the blonde girl on Game of Thrones. Everyone else is a zombie or a dwarf or sleeping with their sister,' a paraphrase there, 'so she looks normal.' Do you ever get nervous when you look around your network?"

Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes took a really lame swipe at Republicans tonight. I realize I could say that every week, but tonight's episode "That's My Girl" was especially pathetic. She had former RNC head and campaign manager Elizabeth North ramble to Attorney General David Rosen that because she's a Republican, she doesn't believe in college and that education is worthless.

MSNBC’s always tolerant Lawrence O’Donnell trotted out the tired liberal narrative that all Republicans are idiots on the issues and governance on Thursday afternoon. Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan met Thursday to discuss how the Republican Party can unify and move forward following a contentious primary.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi instructed them to follow the lead of late night comedians (in the mold of The Daily Show or The Nightly Show) to take down Donald Trump and the Republicans to the point that she offered to “encourage” them to broadcast such exposes as the general election intensifies.

Thursday evening saw the failure of all three of the network news outlets to report on the massive legal blow to ObamaCare. In her decision, U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that the Obama administration’s unilateral funding of $175 billion to insurance subsidies was unconstitutional. The ruling was a major win for House Republicans, a victory that was a long time coming. With a lack of funding through the subsidies, and large insurance companies fleeing the exchanges, ObamaCare might be on its last leg.

Given MSNBC's reputation as a liberal cable channel, it's rare for a program anchor to press a Democratic official on an issue that could embarrass the guest, but that's what happened on Wednesday afternoon.
Meet the Press Daily Host Steve Kornacki asked Debbie Wasserman Schultz -- a representative from Florida and chair of the Democratic National Committee -- several times regarding a call for her to debate her primary opponent and Bernie Sanders supporter, Tim Canova, who has raised “a surprising $1 million” while taking on an incumbent party official.

On Thursday, TVNewser reported on CNN host Carol Costello telling SiriusXM radio host Dean Obeidallah how she really felt about former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his routine mocking of her network: “I’ll just be honest with you – it did bug me....It’s easy to cherry-pick, and then you slam somebody. Sometimes we deserve it, and sometimes we don’t..."

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews has offered NewsBusters readers perhaps the largest library of ridiculous statements over the years but his segment topics took a bizarre turn on Wednesday when he devoted an entire block to Hillary Clinton’s interest in releasing documents pertaining to Area 51 and the chances that aliens exist inside the U.S.

Eleven days after a raging forest fire forced the entire town of Fort McMurray to evacuate, there is still no timeline for the displaced families to return home. The media, however, have been busy using the tragedy as yet another opportunity to promote climate change rhetoric.

The global warming alarmists in the liberal media always latch on to events and blame them on climate change. It’s their regular M.O. But recent reports claiming climate change was responsible for drowning five Pacific Islands misrepresented the science.
This irritated Dr. Simon Albert, a researcher at the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Queensland, one of the scientists whose paper was “misrepresented by alarmists,” according to Breitbart London.
ABCNews.com claimed on May 9, “Five Solomon Islands Disappear Into the Pacific Ocean as a Result of Climate Change.”
