Rosie O'Donnell appeared shocked by the suggestion that Barack Obama "doesn't love people." The View co-host and 9/11 truther sparred with Republican Nicolle Wallace over the President and demonstrated that she's still obsessed with George W. Bush. After Wallace suggested that Joe Biden has an easier time because " Joe Biden genuinely loves people," O'Donnell sputtered, "So, are you implying that Obama doesn't?...He doesn't love people? Oh, wow."

What is it with high-placed liberal women and crude talk? First we learn that Obama National Security advisor Susan Rice throws around the charming “motherf*****” in meetings with allies. Then Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) makes a joke about testicles on national TV. Now a senator casually deploys biologically impossible suggestions. 

Appearing on HuffPost Live to hawk her new book Sept. 15, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was discussing sexism she said she’s encountered in her career. After the host of the interview praised her restraint after receiving a particularly egregious comment, Gillibrand explained that her respectable response was only because she “wasn’t in a place to tell him to go f*** himself,” but in a later setting she did “unleash on him.”

NBC, ABC, and CBS completely ignored the latest setback for ObamaCare after news broke Monday that around 115,000 people were expected to lose health insurance coverage at the end of September due to their failure to verify their legal status as United States citizens.

Not only did CBS skip any mention of the bad news for President Obama's signature legislation, but on Tuesday's CBS This Morning, co-host Norah O'Donnell actually touted a good news story about the law in the New York Times: "Federal researchers say the number of uninsured Americans dropped by about 4 million to 41 million during the first quarter of this year. It's the first time the government has counted uninsured Americans since President Obama's Affordable Care Act kicked in last January." [Listen to the audio]

Legal battles against state governor’s with higher political aspirations keep cropping up. But looking deeper into attacks on Republican governors from Texas, Wisconsin and Louisiana reveals George Soros’ checkbook was behind it all – but the news media aren’t about to point that out.

The group that first filed an indictment charge against Texas Gov. Rick Perry was funded by Soros, the liberal billionaire, but the trail of his money didn’t end there. Both the recall election for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and an even less successful recall attempt for Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal were rooted in Soros-funded groups. Between them, these three potential Republican presidential candidates were targeted by groups receiving more than $6.3 million from Soros.

What's next, Mika?  Giant alligators in the sewers of New York City?  On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski perpetuated the hoary urban legend that domestic violence spikes on Super Bowl Sunday.

Brzezinski's blunder came in the context of the panel's discussion of the NFL's domestic violence mess. Arguing that football is a violent game and that "there's a connection" with what happens at home, Mika continued, "domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday. We've seen the numbers. Why is that?" Actually, Brzezinski has apparently not seen the numbers, since that myth has been thoroughly debunked, often by organizations fighting domestic violence, as here, here and here.

In a conversation on Twitter with Fox News Channel (FNC) contributor Richard Grenell, Boston Globe reporter Bryan Bender continued the media’s double standard of slamming then-President George W. Bush’s international coalition for the Iraq War and President Obama’s current coalition for fighting the Islamic terrorist group ISIS. 

Writing in a tweet addressed to Grenell, Bender stated that “Bush had no coalition” when going into Iraq. To that claim, Grenell cited how 48 countries were actually part of Bush’s “coalition of the willing” compared to the nine for President Obama’s ISIS coalition (as of Sunday morning).

Yet again MSNBC's Chris Matthews has blamed Islamist terrorism on the stationing of U.S. troops in "the holy land" of Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War, echoing a talking point of the late terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.

CBS and NBC continued to provide positive coverage of Hillary Clinton’s visit to Democratic Senator Tom Harkin’s steak fry event in Iowa on Monday night after both networks gushed over her appearance in their morning shows and NBC’s Meet the Press wondered on Sunday if she might not be liberal enough for Iowa Democrats in 2016. The nearly three minutes of coverage between the two networks was in comparison to their zero coverage of news from investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson that aides to Clinton when she was Secretary of State engaged in a weekend meeting that included the removal of documents related to the Benghazi attacks that portrayed her in a negative light.

"Christians in China are facing the most brutal crackdown in decades from their own government," CNN's Erin Burnett informed viewers of her Monday, September 15 program Erin Burnett OutFront. "Tonight we have exclusive video out front that shows police beating church members," the CNN anchor noted as she introduced a report from Beijing-based correspondent David McKenzie.

At the end of his taped story, Burnett noted that the Chinese Communists have blacked out McKenzie's story in China every time it's supposed to air.

U. of Chicago professor Jerry Coyne thinks that whether you’re talking about ISIS or the Vatican, “there is no ‘true’ religion in the factual sense, for there is no good evidence supporting their claims to truth.” He also says that you can cherry-pick the Qur’an as easily as you can the Bible, for both are filled with calls for violence and genocide.”

Given the host's well-known loathing of Republicans, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi probably thought she was on friendly turf during her weekend appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."

What she clearly had not anticipated was that she was dealing with a comedian who's as much loose cannon as he is left winger.

Can Touré Neblett not see the incandescent irony of his statement?  His show-ending rant on The Cycle today condemned the censorship of the shocking images of war. Railed Touré: "we're blocked from seeing so much of the cost of war, of the evil of war as if we are too sensitive or squeamish or unable to handle the graphic truth."

Touré focused on one particular photo, taken by photo-journalist Kenneth Jarecke during the first Gulf War, deploring the fact that AP refused to publish it. Incredibly, Touré  then proceeded to . . . censor the photo himself, declaring that it's "so graphic I can't show it to you now."  Hello?

Insisting that "crush[ing]" or destroying ISIS is simply impossible to achieve, liberal Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky devoted an 11-paragraph piece entitled "Please—Let's Not Destroy ISIS" to explaining why he "wish[es] Obama had the conviction to stand up and say" that "contain[ing] [ISIS] is what we should do."

Charlie Rose has repeatedly fawned over his "friend" Hillary Clinton, even reading a poem to her. But when Rand Paul appeared on CBS This Morning, Monday, Rose and his co-hosts grilled the possible 2016 presidential contender. Citing the Washington Post, Gayle King derided, " You were described yourself as an isolationist..."

Try this quiz on your conservative friends. Which so-called Republican offered a gooey blurb on the cover of the biography of liberal pro-abortion Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis?

A certain morning host on MSNBC thinks she has an "inspirational" story to tell.
