It was a Friday hatefest against Republican Governor Bobby Jindal and other opponents of same-sex marriage as liberal comedians John Fugelsang and Dean Obeidallah joined substitute host Michael Eric Dyson on The Ed Show to spew vitriol because of the Louisiana Republican's decision to back a religious freedom bill in his home state.

Roll Call, the newspaper that covers Capitol Hill, featured a video of Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill playing the race card on the Senate floor about the vote to confirm Loretta Lynch for Attorney General. And she wasn’t alone in getting this kind of attention - attention that was manifestly filled with flat-out untruth. Reagan nominee Ed Meese was held up twice as long back in the mid-1980s.

On Friday, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski had a little outburst over how Loretta Lynch, the prosecutor with "the most amazing, outstanding career," had been delayed from her ascension to high office by a fight over abortion language in a human-trafficking bill, otherwise known as politics being played very badly, poorly, just ridiculously on the part of the Republicans."

Sounds like the folks over at CNN are upping the ante over climate change. In addition to climate change being blamed for cute and cuddly polar bears becoming endangered (which has been debunked) and giving children nightmares, they are now trying their hand at scare tactics, specifically, frightening people into believing in climate change by focusing on a mere two degrees Celsius.

By embracing the “Two Degrees Celsius” initiative, CNN has given its reporter and recipient of an award by the American Society of News Editors for public service journalism, John Sutter, the next eight months to report on the insurmountable destruction that could occur because of these two little degrees.

A great third season ending Wednesday night on FX’s The Americans, as the episode juxtaposed then-President Ronald Reagan’s “evil empire” speech with two undercover KGB agents in the U.S. distraught by the charge as their frantic teenage daughter, who just recently learned their true identity, gets on the phone to tell her pastor that her parent are Russians. Plus, a cameo of the voice of Chris Wallace.

You can usually set your watch to it.

First, you learn about a "progressive" or liberal darling who makes a controversial, over-the-top statement which would get him or her in serious trouble with the general public if widely known. About 24 hours later, you visit establishment press coverage of the event, especially at the Associated Press, and find not a hint that anything controversial occurred. Such is the case with Hillary Clinton's comments yesterday at the annual Women in the World summit in Washington. Video, a transcript, and a portion of Julie Pace's AP whitewash follow the jump.

NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd granted an interview to their affiliate station WWQC in Davenport, Iowa. He unloaded the conventional wisdom on anchor Marcia Lense when she asked if the newest uranium scandal with the Clintons would change the game with voters, or this would fade away.

Todd picked (b). Journalists think scandals never end up hurting the Clintons. They’re just “circumstantial scandals” that the Clintons always survive – in part because the liberal journalists very much want them to survive.

Of all the rotten reasons not to execute Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, we'll give the booby prize to the one offered by Paul Raushenbush, a HuffPo religion editor and ordained American Baptist minister. On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, Raushenbush imagined that in twenty years, Tsarnaev might become "a spokesperson for reconciling Islam with America. We don't know what this life is going to lead to." Anything's possible, but surely Tsarnaev's sentence should not be based on this sort of idle speculation.  

What made Raushenbush's argument particularly galling was his statement that "the idea of ending any life for any reason is for me just not something I want done in my name."  I Googled, and sure enough Raushenbush supports abortion rights. You don't want "any life" ended in your name?  You don't know what a life that is ended might lead to, Rev. Raushenbush?

Nicolle Wallace was supposed to be the "conservative" voice for The View, but on Friday she proved again why that's silly. Veteran liberal journalist Diane Sawyer appeared to promote her new profile of Bruce Jenner as he undergoes transgender surgery.
