Has a person who did something undeniably brave and dangerous in an effort to save the lives of others earned the right to henceforth act like a crackpot? Watching the bizarre saga of nurse Kaci Hickox, I have my doubts.

Hickox, you've surely heard by now, is the Doctors Without Borders nurse placed in mandatory quarantine in New Jersey after spending a month in West Africa treating victims of the Ebola outbreak. She tested negative in a preliminary test for the disease but a forehead scan showed a temperature of 101, which Hickox attributed to her anger over her confinement. Other readings found her temperature to be normal.

Appearing on Fox News's O'Reilly Factor Tuesday night, media analyst Bernard Goldberg praised reporter Sharyl Attkisson for calling out the liberal bias of her former employer, CBS News, in her upcoming book. He then lamented the difficultly in ending such bias: "But here's why the problem is not going to go away. Even if top management wants to eliminate this liberal bias, there are too many producers and reporters in important positions at all the networks who are liberal, and who let their liberalism affect their journalism."

Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner reported that “Sarah Palin on Tuesday shot back at CNN anchor Carol Costello’s gleeful mocking over the assault of Palin’s daughter Bristol, charging that liberal media want to destroy those who don’t agree with them.”

Palin told Stuart Varney on the Fox Business Network, “They do want to destroy personally those they disagree with. They’re very, very intolerant of those who maybe hold opposing views to their liberal failed agenda views. So, you know, they want to crush us.”

For a “women’s health” organization, Planned Parenthood doesn’t think too highly of women. We can’t be trusted to take responsibility for our sex lives, or even to get ourselves to the polls Nov. 4. The abortion giant wants to know our plan for voting — and isn’t above using children to make sure we go out vote for the destruction of children.

Bill Donahue of the Catholic League ripped NBC host Seth Meyers for his mocking of the Catholic sacrament of the Eucharist on the early Tuesday edition of Late Night. During his monologue, Meyers spotlighted a church in Seattle filing a lawsuit against a neighboring facility that sells legal marijuana, and pretended to be a priest who was high on the drug and started snacking on communion wafers.

On Monday night, Daily Show host Jon Stewart hilariously mocked Democratic politicians for dodging questions about their support for President Obama heading into the midterm elections. During the opening segment, the Comedy Central host poked fun at Senator Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) for failing to say if the Obama administration had handled the Ebola crisis appropriately. Stewart claimed Pryor was “acting like she [Kasie Hunt] found your porn. Is this your Penthouse magazine? Uhhh…I would say. Are you asleep yet?”

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday weighed in on the Pope's comments about the Big Bang theory and evolution, spinning them as a battle between science and "conservatives. Reporter Allen Pizzey opened the segment by cheering, "Fresh from having taken on conservatives" at a meeting with Bishops, "Pope Francis sided with science over dogma."

Steyer, the left's "green hero," is a walking contradiction and an opportunist. On the one hand, he regularly campaigned against fossil fuels and spent millions of dollars backing politicians who agree with him. With the other, he stacked up piles of cash he made off those fossil fuels -- sometimes at the same time.

Intent on getting his people elected, Steyer has spent an incredible $74 million on the election just in 2014, more than anyone else. His campaign tactics have ranged from aggressive to obnoxious to simply inaccurate. According to the Oct. 2, 2014, Washington Post, his operation “has paid for 7,050 ads in Senate races in Colorado, Iowa, Michigan and New Hampshire and in the Florida governor’s race.” The newspaper gave one of those ads four out of four “Pinocchios” for being factually inaccurate.

Despite a plethora of Democratic candidates this year who have embarrassed their party – from  Wendy Davis attacking her opponent’s disability to Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes refusing to say if she voted for the President to Nikki Haley’s Democratic male opponent calling her a whore – the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks have been almost silent in airing these stories on their evening and morning shows.

Liberals are horrified that on paper, NPR now only has one reporter on the "climate change" beat. Katherine Bagley at InsideClimate News reports there used to be three full-time reporters and an editor on the Earth-on-fire watch. But NPR insists that it knows this is a deeply important issue, and never one in need of balance.

NBC Nightly News showered praise on President Obama regarding his Ebola response on Tuesday night, declaring that Obama was “hitting back” and “[came] out swinging in this fight over quarantines” against those who demanded and then implemented quarantines for aid workers returning from West Africa.

The rhetoric followed NBC’s Today from Tuesday morning in which Matt Lauer slammed Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for quarantining health care workers that return to the United States through his state after treating those stricken with Ebola in Africa.

Liberals have this terrible and annoying habit of congratulating themselves for their intellectual heft merely because they hold liberal views. Once this arrogant notion reigns, it’s tough for liberals to acknowledge when one of their own says something so remarkably unfactual and stupid that it makes you wonder just how ignorant the liberal really is.

At an event for Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley in Boston on October 24, Hillary Clinton told the assembled Democratic faithful: “Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”

HBO Real Time host Bill Maher, a self-proclaimed atheist, is often viewed as controversial among conservatives. Recently, however, it’s not conservatives who are up in arms over Maher’s latest comments. Instead, it's one of the most liberal colleges in the country – the University of California, Berkeley.

Maher is expected to speak at a graduation ceremony at Berkeley in December.  It is this speaking engagement that has many students protesting Maher’s planned speech because of his “racist and bigoted” views on the Muslim faith.

With the midterm elections one week away from Tuesday, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley profiled the race in Wisconsin for governor as incumbent Governor and Republican Scott Walker faces off against Democratic candidate Mary Burke. 

While it’s certainly worth covering governor’s races across the country, CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds chose to use the occasion to go after Walker and his policies by asking Burke if a victory over Walker would “send a message to the rest of the country about the kind of policies and politics that he practices.”

A blogger tells DKos readers that even if they’re disappointed that Democrats aren’t farther to the left, it’s vital for them to vote in the midterms against racist ultra-right-wing GOPers.
