Friday on MBSNC’s NewsNation, Tamron Hall addressed Ben Carson’s statements on gun control and how he would have dealt with the gunman at Umpqua. Tamron would entertain the attacks on Carson by Matt K. Lewis and Joan Walsh. Lewis accused Carson of opining where he shouldn't and should know better. While adding her own allegation that Carson would have tried to have the children assault a gunman, Hall appeared to confuse the status of college students at Umpqua with those of elementary school children at Newtown. Finally, Walsh attacked Carson supporters, claiming they have an appetite for cruel and delusional comments.

Previewing President Obama’s latest interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes with Steve Kroft, the 60 Minutes correspondent and the co-hosts of Friday’s CBS This Morning fawned over the President’s performance as “feisty” and proof that he finds his final years in office “liberating” as he does not have to go before voters again.

Just because the government says it, doesn’t mean it is true and that especially applies to dietary advice and nutrition.
For years, the U.S. government and the liberal news media dissuaded people from consuming saturated fats including dairy fat that can be found in whole milk. But new science shows “certain foods that are high in fat seem to be beneficial.”

Oh Salon, is there any group, no matter how small, insignificant or just plain silly, that you won’t offer up as a misunderstood minority?
On Wednesday, Salon readers learned of Alanna Weissman. She hates your kids, and she’s not sorry. You hear that, your first reaction is to shrug bemusedly and walk away. Kids aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. But stop right there! Weissman’s a marginalized minority, damn it. And she will be heard.

On Friday, all three broadcast networks read from the same liberal script as hosts and correspondents predicted doom for the Republican Party following Kevin McCarthy’s withdrawal from the race for Speaker of the House. Leading off NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie breathlessly proclaimed: “Congress in chaos. House Republicans racing to find a new speaker this morning. Bitterly divided Republicans now scrambling for a replacement.”

The morning after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy shocked Congress by announcing he was dropping out of the race to become the next Speaker of the House, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today sprinted over to their analysts to tear into the “really pathetic” conservatives for creating a “chaotic” situation for the House that shows they’re “impossible to run.”

What happens if you are a candidate for governor and you lose badly? Not just a mere bad loss but one of historically bad proportions following an absolutely horrible campaign marked by the cowardice of shying from previously well known positions. Well, if you are a liberal it could mean you can score a TV show based on the aftermath of your loss. Such is the case with Wendy Davis. The "Abortion Barbie" of Texas who mostly avoided that for which she was best known is the inspiration of a "dramedy" show based on life after going down to complete defeat after refusing to stand up for what she really believed during her gubernatorial campaign. Deadline Hollywood describes the NBC show based on the cowardly campaigner:

Drew Magary is a regular columnist at GQ.com.
Apparently Magary, his editors and the publication's management have forgotten or don't care about what the "G" in GQ is supposed to stand for. Both the headline and the content of the writer's latest column flunk the "gentlemen's" test.

Who is taking more glee from the current Republican turmoil over the selection of the next Speaker: Democrats or the MSM—or do I repeat myself?
Today's Morning Joe featured a clip from Andrea Mitchell's interview of Ben Carson in which she asked: "what does this just say about the Republican brand and the Republican party. Can it survive after this kind of chaos?" Wishful thinking, Andrea?

Despite the implied nudity in the show’s opening scene, this episode, "I Choose You," of Grey's Anatomy actually earns a pat on the back for proving that Hollywood writers get it right every now and then. What caught my attention is that this episode explains true feminism quite well. Instead of victimhood being promoted as Meredith realizes she is being offered less money for her new position as Chief of General than she rightfully should expect, Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) teaches that women, as well as men, have to stand up and ask for what is wanted. “She needs to fight for herself.”

How to Get Away with Murder is back at it again, going over the top with sex stuff. The whole episode was dedicated to sex, even the title of the episode is a reference to a sex act – “It’s Called The Octopus.” As the show creator Pete Nowalk said, “Sex is part of the framework of the show.” The client of the week for defense attorney Annalise (Viola Davis) and her law students is a woman charged with murder because a man had a heart attack and died while having sex with her at a sex club she owns.
