Terrorists target America's shopping malls, but the nation is defenseless thanks to partisan Republicans shutting down the Department of Homeland Security. That's the ominous picture the three major networks painted this week. Instead of offering balanced coverage of a fight that tied DHS funding and Republican opposition to Barack Obama's executive order amnesty, ABC, NBC and CBS hyped the threat of an endangered United States. Out of 11 segments, network news viewers never heard a single word of criticism of President Obama's executive amnesty order that precipitated the conflict.

In the midst of freezing weather and record snowstorms in the eastern United States, NBC's Al Roker wishes the term "Global Warming" had never been used. Too bad, Al. As the Great Lakes are mostly frozen over due to the extreme cold, you are stuck with a term devised by liberals about twenty years ago to describe what they confidently predicted would happen at the time. Now that Global Warming laughably did not pan out, suddenly liberals and Al Roker are regretting that terminology and are now using the all-inclusive "Climate Change" instead.

On Thursday, both NBC's Today and CBS This Morning were eager to promote MSNBC's town hall infomercial that allowed President Obama to push his executive overreach on illegal immigration and slam his opponents. On Today, news anchor Natalie Morales proclaimed: "The President is urging millions of undocumented immigrants to keep planning for eventual relief....he pledged to do everything in his power to overhaul the immigration system." She then touted his attacks on Republicans: "He challenged voters to hold Republicans accountable for killing reform efforts."

Appearing on the Fox Business Network’s (FBN) Varney & Company on Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell reacted to the lack of media coverage following two Washington Post articles that revealed the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments, including more than $500,000 from the Algerian government while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

Wednesday night, Fox News's Greta Van Susteren sharply criticized Susan Rice for her Tuesday comment about Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's impending March 3 speech to Congress, namely that "On both sides, there has now been injected a degree of partisanship, which is not only unfortunate, but I think it's destructive of the fabric of the relationship." To be clear, Rice is not freelancing. Wednesday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters that "what she said was entirely consistent with what the President said publicly before."

This was too much for Van Susteren, who needed only 45 seconds of the 90-second clip which follows to rattle off a half-dozen examples of how the Obama administration's conduct has been "destructive" to the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Elizabeth Jensen, hired by NPR as their new Ombudsman, picked up a question from NewsBusters on how NPR host Diane Rehm can do fundraisers for assisted-suicide lobbying group “Compassion & Choices.”

Jensen says she shouldn’t do this, that it’s a “step too far,” noting that NewsBusters picked up on the ethical issue.

The New York Times' left-wing obsession over "income inequality" reached a pathetic nadir in Wednesday's print edition, in Randal Archibold's report on the Communist country injecting some feeble moves toward free enterprise to prop up its rotting economy: "As Cuba opens the door wider to private enterprise, the gap between the haves and have-nots, and between whites and blacks, that the revolution sought to diminish is growing more evident."

Following a morning in which CBS and NBC gleefully promoted Hillary Clinton’s latest public appearance, Wednesday’s CBS Evening News built on that with another shameless promotion of Clinton and her “new strategy for winning” ahead of a likely presidential bid in 2016. Anchor Scott Pelley began the pro-Clinton segment by remarking how “[i]f Hillary Clinton has a shot at becoming the first woman president, she'll need women voters and we're beginning to see how she hopes to do it” with her speech before a group of women involved in the technology field in Silicon Valley.

During an exclusive townhall meeting with President Obama, MSNBC and Telemundo host and townhall moderator José Díaz-Balart twice pressed President Obama to further expand his administration’s controversial new policy to exempt millions of unauthorized immigrants from the application of the nation’s immigration laws.

On Wednesday night, liberal networks MSNBC and Telemundo teamed up to present a town hall on illegal immigration that featured President Barack Obama before a friendly auditorium of supporters and taking questions that ranged from softballs to ones from the far left that implored him to further expand his amnesty. The event was moderated by Jose Diaz-Balart, who serves as the anchor of both MSNBC’s The Rundown and Telemundo’s Noticiero Telemundo. From the start, it was clear that he was also on stage to play the role of advocate.

John Cassidy calls the Wisconsin governor “an odious politician whose ascension to the Presidency would be a disaster” but admits, “For all his awfulness, Walker is a serious contender. We’d better get used to it.”

And liberals wonder why they're so often seen as sympathetic to Islamists.

Fox News analyst Juan Williams contributed mightily to that perception with comments he made today on Fox's late afternoon show The Five.

Hardball host Chris Matthews devoted the first 11 minutes of his February 25 program to rehashing tired, discredited talking points about the upcoming March 3 speech to a joint session of Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
