On Thursday's The Situation Room, after live coverage of President Barack Obama's speech on the day's shootings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, CNN was true to form in promoting more gun control as CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Tom Fuentes urged President Obama to "lead" in proposing gun legislation and not just be the "mourner-in-chief."

Notably, moments earlier, when Fuentes described the students sitting in their class rooms as "sitting ducks" for the gunman to attack, anchor Wolf Blitzer noted that "there's no guns supposedly allowed on this campus," but this relevant observation did not develop into anyone suggesting that gun laws in the state be relaxed so professors and students could have a chance of defending themselves.

As part of CNN’s live coverage Thursday night of the deadly community college shooting in Oregon, fill-in AC360 host Wolf Blitzer declared that President Barack Obama “was embarrassed of the United States in front of the world” when he commented on the tragedy and urged Americans to “politicize” mass shootings. Prior to Blitzer’s observation, Zeleny fretted the presidential campaigns like that of Hillary Clinton will be unable “to bring any sense to this” shooting with the President encountering “not a bipartisan spirit to do anything.”

Asked to name something that stands alone, a lot of people would say, “The cheese.” To New York magazine's Jonathan Chait, another reasonable answer is “the Republican party,” at least in regard to global warming specifically and hatred of government in general.

Chait’s main point is that the GOP is extremist not only in an American context but also by international standards: “Of all the major conservative parties in the democratic world, the Republican Party stands alone in its denial of the legitimacy of climate science…The fervent commitment to supply-side economics is also an almost uniquely American idea. The GOP is the only major democratic party in the world that opposes the principle of universal health insurance. The virulence of anti-government ideology in the United States has no parallel anywhere in the world.”

Following President Barack Obama’s angry reaction Thursday night to the deadly community college shooting in Oregon and pleas to “politicize” mass shootings, the CBS Evening News did just that with a full story lamenting the lack of gun control by laying blame at the feet of the GOP-led Senate and the National Rifle Association (NRA) for their support of candidates in favor of gun rights.

David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon discovered The Washington Post scrambled to change a blog post gushing over NBC late-night host Seth Meyers, and how his attempt to ape Jon Stewart “explains everything you need to know about the Planned Parenthood controversy....grab your headphones and be confused no more."

Aaron Blake, managing editor of the Post political blog “The Fix,” told the Free Beacon, “We updated the post to more accurately reflect Meyers’s clear point of view on this issue.”

Left-wing radio talker Thom Hartmann is hobbled with a decidedly short memory. He condemns Republicans for wasting no time in their plans to thwart President Obama, literally from the first day of his presidency.

Hartmann has apparently forgotten that one has to go way, way back to the second Bush presidency to see the opposition party so determined in its efforts to undermine the chief executive.

Hurricane Joaquin hasn’t hit ground in the U.S. yet, and might not, but already a climate alarmist public relations shop is pushing “Journalists” to blame climate change for the storm’s strength.

Late in the afternoon, Oct. 1, Climate Nexus sent out a press release to the media claiming the storm was gaining strength “over [a] record-hot ocean.” That’s how the group promoted its “hurricane backgrounder,” designed to link the storm to global warming.

Reporters who dare to ask pro-abortion politicians if an unborn baby is a human being are now being called “abortion protesters” -- by the liberal media, that is.

At a press conference Thursday morning, journalist Sam Dorman from MRC’s news division, CNS News, asked Rep. Nancy Pelosi a question about abortion. For daring to challenge the abortion-supporting House Minority Leader, reporter Kelsey Snell of The Washington Post misrepresented the CNS reporter as “an abortion protester” in her headline and story of the event.

Chris Matthews on Thursday, filling in for Andrea Mitchell on Andrea Mitchell Reports, interviewed Congressman Jason Chaffetz. Rather than discussing the current investigation, which the Congressman leads, into Planned Parenthood's finances, Matthews grilled Chaffetz on his opinion of the stillborn footage included in a Center for Medical Progress video. He also lectured Chaffetz to watch more Hardball

On Thursday, Brian Williams predictably raised the gun control issue as he anchored MSNBC's breaking news coverage of a mass shooting in Oregon. Williams asked Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, "Can I ask you about your gun laws – concealed carry, that kind of thing?" The Democrat pushed back in explaining the state laws: "It's a complicated area. But that's my understanding – not that it's particularly relevant right at the moment."

Early Thursday, a gunman opened fire on campus at an Oregon community college, killing 13 people and injuring at least 20. Every time a mass shooting happens, society is understandably shocked, saddened and outraged at the lives lost due to unneeded violence. But the liberal media took this a step further, from using the tragic situation to blame the NRA and the Constitution to trying to take away a right that many Americans hold so dear.

Take a look below at some of the actual demands made by the liberal media immediately after the shooting on Twitter.

A few Hillary supporters just learned an important lesson about paying attention to your candidate’s policies.

Following the announcement of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s  tax plan, late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel set out to find whether voters paid any attention to details.

The old journalism adage of “If it bleeds, it leads,” is a well-known one. A modern innovation of that saying, to suit the race-obsessed liberal sports media hell-bent on stoking the flames of racial hatred, might be: “If it’s not bleeding, poke it, and see what happens.” Such a mentality was clearly in use when USA Today writer Jorge Ortiz penned an article titled “Baseball’s culture clash: Vast majority of brawls involve players of different ethnicities.”

"Pope Francis also visited the White House last week.  But his Holiness was confused by Vice President Biden, who congratulated the Pope on the Cardinals having the best record in the league."

Since the September 16 GOP debate, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts have significantly ramped up their coverage of businesswoman Carly Fiorina, giving her more than 15 percent of the GOP candidates’ airtime over the past two weeks. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush attracted just three percent of TV news coverage; in the first six months of 2015, Bush dominated the coverage with 36 percent of all GOP airtime.
