During an interview with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose gleefully held up a copy of the Daily News and read the mock obituary on the cover of the left-wing tabloid: “...it says, ‘Republican Party 1854-2016; Dearly beloved, we're gathered here today to mourn the GOP. A once great political party killed by epidemic of Trump.’”

The establishment press seemingly never misses an opportunity to smear a conservative's or businessperson's reputation upon their death. For those who need reminders, see how the Associated Press went after Tony Snow in 2008 and how the New York Times treated Cracker Barrel founder Danny Evins in 2012. Today, the AP took matters a step further, using the occasion of a soldier's death to smear his late grandfather.

Charles Keating IV is the Navy SEAL who died in Iraq on Tuesday. His grandfather was the late Charles Keating Jr. Given the elder Keating's historical prominence, the wire service would have been remiss if it had failed to note the family lineage. But in both its early breaking story, and in a later more detailed writeup, the AP treated what Charles Keating did decades ago as more important than a soldier who died yesterday.

Leon Wolf at RedState notes that CNN is touting that it has beaten Fox News in the primetime ratings in the key age demographic of 25 to 54 in five of the last eight months. In all-day ratings in that demographic, CNN used to have less than half of Fox's overall viewership, but they now are behind Fox News by nine percent.

Wolf says Trump-boosting is eating into Fox's numbers:

A federal appeals court ruling upholding Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s authority to enforce Arizona state law that makes it a felony for unauthorized immigrants to use stolen identities to obtain work has been bitterly denounced by the hosts of Telemundo’s morning show, Un Nuevo Día.

Politico’s bi-monthly magazine published their third annual “Media Issue,” complete with polls of reporters – who are perhaps the most resistant to being polled, fearing how they might reveal which viewpoint is ideologically dominant in the press.

But the media’s true tilt might be implied from the question “Knowing what you know now, who do think will be the next president?” It wasn’t close. Among campaign reporters, 86 percent said Hillary, and 10 percent Trump (three percent said Sanders). Among the White House reporters, 88 percent picked Hillary, and 11 percent said Trump.

Michelle Obama made a special appearance on NCIS Tuesday night. The episode, titled ‘Homefront,’ centered on a military family that was being stalked, and had their house broken into. In her scene, Obama hosted a discussion at the White House about how much the Administration cares about veterans and their families.

Lacking any self-examination whatsoever, failed McCain campaign head and MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt lashed out late Wednesday evening on Mark Levin as the embodiment of “narcissism” and “self-aggrandizers” who have created a “cancer” that’s led “the demise of the conservative movement in the Republican Party.”

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D opened tonight’s episode by attacking the American natural gas industry. Just minutes into “Failed Experiments,” S.H.I.E.L.D. agents zero in on a south Wyoming ghost town that was deserted after oil companies responding to the natural gas boom supposedly contaminated the local population’s groundwater.

Senator Bernie Sanders scored a major victory in his fight against the Clinton political machine Tuesday night in the Indiana primary. Even with that victory the Hillary Clinton friendly media is still calling for Sanders to suspend his campaign and drop out of the race. “Staying in this race, aren't you effectively making it harder for the Democrats to beat the man who you say would be so bad?” inquired CNN’s Dana Bash to Sanders over the phone.

In two separate NBC News updates on the Indiana primary, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd gushed over Donald Trump’s “breathtaking” win in the Hoosier State that offered a “knockout blow” to Ted Cruz’s campaign. Holt led off the first update at 8:43 p.m. Eastern and informed viewers that there was “a major development in the race for president...as Donald Trump scores a big win in Indiana, Ted Cruz is suspending his campaign.”

Ted Cruz dropped out the race for president Tuesday night and CNN’s America’s Choice panel could barely believe their ears. After weeks of saying that Donald Trump was inevitable and his opponents should just give up, now they question the decision to drop out at this point. “Would you have dropped out tonight?” Van Jones asked of Paul Begala.

After losing the Indiana primary to Donald Trump Tuesday evening, Ted Cruz announced he was officially suspending his campaign for president. The somber news brought out the worst in the media who have long hated the Texas Senator for his anti-establishment, conservative values. Several journalists took to Twitter to throw in their final punches at Cruz, who, let’s be honest, will probably continue to get beat up by the media even after leaving the race.

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield, far-left CNN political commentator Sally Kohn oddly brought up the Indiana Ku Klux Klan from the 1920s as evidence of the state being "socially conservative" and "racially divisive," and therefore a place where GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is likely to win by a landslide.

Her analysis was so bizarre that even the left-leaning Ashleigh Banfield stepped in to "stick up for" Indiana residents who "would absolutely disavow that."

Just as the liberal media gleefully did with Marco Rubio, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Nicolle Wallace blasted Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) early Tuesday night for simply standing up to Donald Trump and denouncing his promotion of an unsubstantiated National Enquirer story alleging Cruz’s father Rafael may have been a part of the plot to kill then-President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
