What does yogurt have to do with gay sex? I don’t know but Chobani wants you to make the association. With the mania over all things LGBT in the media, advertisers have begun making more commercials portraying same-sex couples and families. Chobani Yogurt just put out a new ad that some would say pushes the envelope in appropriateness.

Peter denied Jesus three times but Hillary Clinton appears to have a much more difficult task; she is going to have to deny herself at least 45 times.

Last Friday, Hillary Clinton's spokesperson, Karen Finney, appeared on CNN's The Lead and exasperated Jake Tapper by continuing to avoid avoid answering the important question as to whether her boss still supports or opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade bill in Congress. Not a good move in the long run because yesterday Tapper struck back by listing in detail with her own quotes 45 times that Hillary pushed the trade bill over the years. First Tapper writes about Hillary's current reluctance to back the trade bill in stark contrast to the many times she strongly supported it in the past:

James Jordan is a former contestant on the BBC show “Strictly Come Dancing.” And, after criticizing show judge Craig Horwood’s intentions to open up the competition to same-sex couples, Jordan can probably count on remaining former. 

In May, Horwood declared that “There are competitions throughout the world that have same sex couples – you just have to decide who goes backwards darling!” He continued to say that the change will occur “this year, or next year, but most certainly it will happen.”

Look at the data. That’s what former Gov. John Sununu of New Hampshire recently told Huffington Post Live about climate change.

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN's Michaela Pereira criticized former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal for her false narrative about her race: "To a lot of people, it's as though she's just appropriating a lifestyle, a culture, a racial identity. And the fact is, she's told a lot of lies about other things."

View co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday demanded to know if Carly Fiorina will base a presidential bid on her "Christian beliefs." The Republican contender appeared on the show and rebutted such attacks on her conservative stances. Goldberg bluntly quizzed, "I assume you're a person who is very, sort of, pro-life. Are you going to run as a person going to govern for everyone or are you running on your Christian beliefs?"

In February of last year, Gap Inc., which operates Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic and Athleta stores, announced that it would raise its minimum hourly rate of pay for all U.S. employees to $9 in June 2014 and $10 in June 2015. As a result, it won "praise from President Obama who is pushing to raise the nation's minimum wage by a similar amount." The company said that the move would affect 65,000 employees who were making less.

The linked CNN Money report quoted an apparently confident Lynn Albright, a vice president at Old Navy, as follows: "We're coming from place where we can afford to make this investment." Maybe the company could afford it then, but based on today's store closure announcement, that's not so much the case now:

Yet again, MSNBC has revived the narrative that Hillary Clinton is good at dealing with the press and answering questions. Making an appearance on Monday's Rachel Maddow Show, Andrea Mitchell talked up Hillary as being “so good and adept” at handling the press. At least Mitchell added that Clinton had struggled to respond to questions “about the emails and at some points during her book tour.”

At a time when the conventional liberal-media wisdom insists that social conservatism is a loser for the Republican Party, it’s worth remembering that on abortion, the electoral momentum has been on the pro-life side. 

Sunday’s Washington Post put feminist Cosmopolitan writer Jill Filipovic on the front of the Outlook section under the headline "Reclaiming Abortion: A new generation of activists wants you to know there's nothing wrong with ending an unwanted pregnancy." But she told a tale of Democrats being totally frank in loving abortion....and losing, badly.

According to CBS on Tuesday, Republicans such as Rick Santorum and Ben Carson are "long shot" candidates running for president to make money or score a television deal on Fox. Reporter Julianna Goldman included clips of six GOP contenders, but not a single "long shot" Democratic candidate. Instead, she ripped 'Don Quixote' conservatives.

Justin Gillis, the most avowedly activist environmental reporter at The New York Times, made the front page of the Science Times with a feature on climate scientist heroine Naomi Oreskes, author of "Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming." Gillis called Oreskes a subject of "far right" attacks from "people pushing climate denial."

On Monday’s The Ed Show, Michael Eric Dyson, MSNBC political analyst and frequent guest host on the "Lean Forward" network, used the ongoing controversy surrounding Rachel Dolezal claiming to be African American to deride Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Dyson asserted: “I bet a lot more black people would support Rachel Dolezal than would support say Clarence Thomas.”

On Tuesday, Sidney Blumenthal, longtime friend and confidant to Bill and Hillary Clinton, is scheduled to testify before the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks but ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today ignored it altogether. CBS This Morning devoted a mere 20 second news brief to the story during its Tuesday broadcast.

Think of Hillary Clinton.  I know, I know, but work with me. Now think of the first 100 things that come to mind.  Is "change" one of them?  It is for Howard Dean, and Bill Kristol found that hilarious. On today's Morning Joe, explaining his early endorsement of Hillary, Dean claimed that "Hillary Clinton is change." That was enough to provoke hearty laughter in the normally-composed Kristol.  

Manifestly in a jocular mood, Kristol later turned the PC tables on Mika Brzezinski. When she claimed that young people are very enthusiastic about Hillary, Kristol told Mika that she needed to hang out with a more "diverse" group of them.
