The Washington Post announces it’s a liberal newspaper by highlighting right-wing extremism and coddling left-wing extremism. Both of these happened in Sunday’s paper. The front page carries a story on the threat of “patriot” groups in Oregon – the only times the Post wants to present people defending liberty and the Constitution is when they’re 9-11 truthers who conduct paramilitary exercises on weekends.

But The Washington Post Magazine carried an article that made a platform for “The New Language of Protest,” asking campus leftists to explain “safe spaces,” “trigger warnings,” and “microaggressions.” Shutting down speech is somehow described as “a new civil rights movement.”

No matter how hard she tries Hillary Clinton cannot seem to be able to put Bernie Sanders away once and for all, and the liberal media is not happy about it. On his Sunday show This Week, Clinton Foundation donor and former aide to President Bill Clinton, George Stephanopoulos badgered Senator Sanders about his steep chances of winning and how he’s hurting the Democratic Party’s ability to win in November. “Can you lay out a credible path to stopping her,” the host asked of Sanders.

Univision’s May 19, 2016 edition of its late-night national news show Edición Nocturna featured a completely favorable story about drug legalization activist Jerónimo Saldaña, the creator and vendor of baseball caps that are stamped with the slogan “Make America Mexico Again.” Saldaña says he was inspired to start making and selling the hats after first seeing one on the Latino Rebels Facebook page and because, as he puts it, he just flat-out doesn’t like Trump. Surprising nobody, in its report Univision included no critical or opposing views against the hat.

BuzzFeed’s Chris Geidner got a sit-down with President Obama at the White House this past Monday afternoon and, as NBC’s Jimmy Fallon noticed, in waiting for Obama to arrive for the live session he became a bit obsessed with the door to the room.

Truth Revolt reports that Sean Penn is not the toast of the Cannes Film Festival. He’s just toast. His new film The Last Face flopped badly. One critic said "There were several lines so wincingly written and embarrassingly delivered that they caused the audience at the press screening to burst into sarcastic applause."

“Clueless for $400.” This past week Jeopardy! aired its “Power Players” shows recorded in Washington, DC back on Saturday, April 9. Viewers were treated to some embarrassing moments for several prominent journalists, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Kate Bolduan, who were seemingly ill-informed about relatively recent events in the news. The video below shows five of the biggest flubs, focused just on current events/recent history questions.

Retired USA Today White House reporter Richard Benedetto penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Friday titled “How Obama Gets Away With It.” He suggested “Usually when an incumbent president is leaving office and a slew of candidates are battling for his job, that departing chief executive’s record is a major campaign issue.”

But Obama’s record in office is not an issue. Obviously, one reason is the Republican establishment didn’t want Obama to be an issue, which is why they moved to take any budget fight with Obama off the table for the rest of his presidency. He also argued the media is putty in Obama's hands.

On Friday's The View on ABC, during a discussion of trust issues surrounding presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, co-host Sunny Hostin cluelessly wondered "what makes Hillary so untrustworthy" as co-host Paula Faris asserted that both candidates are "untrustworthy." Hostin then demanded to know, "Why is she untrustworthy? How many lies has she told?" and, when co-host and FNC contributor Jedediah Bila began recalling Benghazi, Hostin deflected by demanding to know what else other than Benghazi.

Appearing on Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg Show on Thursday, NewsBusters’ executive editor Tim Graham commended Facebook for meeting with conservative leaders – including Media Research Center president Brent Bozell – over accusations of liberal bias, but warned: “...these are...the kind of questions that say even in the social media now...there’s just going to be that temptation to say, ‘Let’s do something for the good guys’...usually those are the liberals....And that’s where you get this kind of suppress-the-conservatives business.”

Since the concept of political correctness became well-known in the late 1980s, it’s typically been thought of as a left-wing phenomenon, but some liberals claim that conservatives have their own version of it. In a Thursday article, Steve Almond alleged that right-wing PC is “a relentless blaring Persecution Complex” which manifests as “a mindset that reframes its paranoid aggressions as legitimate and necessary forms of self-defense.”

“The conservative PC movement is what allows gun-toting madmen to see themselves as religious martyrs when they gun down human beings whose ‘crime’ is that they provide reproductive health services to poor women,” declared Almond. “At its extreme, it’s what prompts men like Timothy McVeigh to perpetrate acts of mass murder in response to the ‘tyranny’ of the U.S. Government.”

Lena Dunham's cameo in "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" got cut from the film's final version. That hardly matters. Her pungent progressive streak infects every frame. The sequel to the surprisingly rich “Neighbors” plays out like a Salon.com article brought to life. You won’t find a liberal talking point untapped before the end credits roll.

It was 1952. The GOP, out of the White House for twenty full years, had finished a rollicking national convention with a bang. After a dramatic showdown between the forces of D-Day hero General Dwight D. Eisenhower and the conservative Ohio Senator Robert Taft, Ike had won the day. Taft, always the gentleman, conceded, and the two rivals posed for pictures smiling together.

On Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, following a meeting the previous day between some of the nation's top conservative leaders and company officials at Facebook, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, "told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto ... that he 'left encouraged' that the site wants to fix the 'erosion of trust' set forth by allegations of censoring conservative news topics."

An incident the previous week confirmed that Zuckerberg and Facebook have a genuine and serious credibility problem on their hands, as the site's "Trending Topics" monitors characterized a well-known actress's shout-out for the wonderful work done by a DC-area pregnancy and parenthood center as an "anti-abortion message."

Despite the fact that an overwhelming amount of Native Americans do not find the Washington Redskins team name offensive, Bob Costas thinks he knows better. The liberal sportscaster on Friday talked to the Washington Post and ignored the impact of a new poll finding 90 percent support for the moniker.

The Left used to congratulate itself on being the "Free Speech Movement" and celebrate the rebellious anarchists who used obscene words and forced sexually graphic images and conversations into the public square. Conservatives were the ones who insisted on decency in the public discourse, and demanded regulation, both within the private sector as well as from the federal government, to protect the public from that obscenity.

But now, as the world turns upside down on sexuality and gender, leftists are becoming the ones who censor and fine. Instead of a Hays Code for decency, there's a Gays Code. Breaking the new language rules of the LGBT lobby can now cost you very dearly. And literally.
