On the heels of President Barack Obama’s announcement on Wednesday that the United States and Cuba will soon open respective embassies in Havana and Washington, the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC covered the story on their evening newscasts with ABC and NBC expressing particular enthusiasm at the move and little to no criticism of the President’s Cuba policy. In addition, the networks failed to label Cuba’s government as communist with ABC and NBC further declining to bring up the authoritarian nature of the Cuban government.

New York Times Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak weighed in on the front page on two Supreme Court decisions, both favorable to conservatives. Yet in both cases Liptak led his coverage off by detailing the losing liberal arguments: "The move, which supporters of race-conscious admissions programs called baffling and ominous, signaled that the court may limit or even end such affirmative action." Liptak often leads off with the losing liberal viewpoint in his Supreme Court coverage

Bernie Sanders has a branding problem -- and Rachel Maddow is doing what she can to help.

If the Vermont senator is known for any one thing, it's this -- the man is unabashedly socialist, unlike so many on the left who claim to be liberal only to reveal their actual collectivist ardor when they get to gushing over Sanders.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer trumpeted the resumption of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba on his Wednesday program. He asked colleague Andres Oppenheimer, "When you think about what's gone on...over these past 54 years, it's almost breathtaking to see what's happened over the past six months or so. Don't you agree?"

Katie Couric conducted a condescending interview with Ted Cruz, asking the Republican if he has "any empathy" for immigrants as he opposes Barack Obama. The presidential candidate also zinged the liberal journalist, reminding her that it was Hillary Clinton who first started the birther campaign.

On Wednesday, the hosts of The Cycle on MSNBC mocked Republican alternatives to ObamaCare. When Toure read a quote from Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) saying he wants to replace the ACA with a more patient-centric plan, Josh Barro of The New York Times wondered, “what does that mean,” and added that “it can mean whatever the listener wants it to mean.” 

Later in the discussion, Toure and Kystal Ball sarcastically threw out words to dismiss Republican arguments against ObamaCare. Ball shouted, “patient centric!...cheaper!...flexible!” Taking a cue from his fellow host, Toure cried, “yay!...freedom!...no more tyranny!” Barro rejected other conservative ideas like selling insurance across state lines and tort reform as insignificant solutions.

On Wednesday's New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo again carried water for the left's social agenda as he interviewed Republican Congressman Steve King. When Rep. King contended that "no one who voted to ratify that Fourteenth Amendment gave...a thought" to the Supreme Court writing "same-sex marriage rights into that," Cuomo retorted that "you could say the same thing about race and anti-miscegenation laws." He later wondered, "How does this [decision] hurt you that it's fueling this outrage among conservatives and Christians?"

Keeping people poor and unable to buy new cars, new homes or much of anything sure is nifty for the environment.

The New York Times sure thinks so. The Grey Lady (new name, the Green Lady) warned of an environmental “tsunami” approaching Cuba as relations normalize with the United States. In a tweet July 1, NYT Science claimed that the “embargo and socialism helped protect Cuba's environment,” but that this was about to change.

MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts took special time out of his news broadcast Tuesday afternoon to give Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards free rein to promote her abortion conglomerate and slam the Texas legislature for their efforts to increase the health standards of abortion clinics across the state.

Happy Independence Day, or, as the left might call it this year, “Original Sin Saturday.” July 4th is when we celebrate the birth of The United States. But, whereas you commemorate the inception of what Lincoln called “the last best hope of earth,” liberals lament that flawed people had the audacity to create a flawed nation. Then, that flawed nation had the bad taste to prosper!

It’s that left-wing understanding of America that’s behind the push to erase or blur our history. The purge of the Confederate flag is currently the noisiest, but by no means the only, prong of the attack from activists and academics and the media who love them.

On Tuesday’s Charlie Rose show the host and his panel were not shy with the superlatives as they celebrated Barack Obama’s “best week.”

On the June 30 edition of America, Jorge Ramos and Ted Cruz engaged in a testy back and forth over the Texas senator’s views on gay marriage. Ramos asked Cruz: “But aren’t you discriminating? Are you putting gays and the LGBT community as second class citizen[s]?” Cruz replied by citing his belief that “following the Constitution isn’t discriminating against anyone.” 

Toward the end of the segment, Ramos continued to pester the Republican senator on the issue, wondering why Cruz “would be discriminating” if gay people are born that way. Cruz hit back at Ramos and the media in general with a fiery response: “Look, we did this interview to talk about my new book, A Time For Truth. And one of the things I’m amazed at, is the media, with all respect, is obsessed with sex. It’s the only thing you want to talk about.”

According to liberal actor and anti-vaccine activist Jim Carrey, mandating vaccines for children in order to prevent deadly infectious diseases is fascism.

In a June 30 twitter tirade, Carrey attacked California Gov. Jerry Brown as a “corporate fascist” for signing SB--277 into law. The bill will eliminate individual religious vaccine exemptions. The recent Disneyland Measles outbreak provided some of the momentum for the bill, but it still faced strong opposition from anti-vaccination alarmists who claim they are dangerous to children and can cause autism.

Third Eye Blind’s singer songwriter Stephan Jenkins found out this week what happens when you get drunk with a bunch of political reporters in Washington, D.C.

The Daily Beast reported July 1 that the journalists were at an album-release party for Dopamine, "for the bar food and the hard liquor." Rather than being a discussion on the 90s rock band’s latest music, the drunk group debated politics and Jenkins insulted conservatives, libertarians, Republicans and George W. Bush, presidential candidate Marco Rubio and others.

Perhaps Conan O'Brien and his writers should be a little less sloppy. On Monday, the comedian mocked Jeb Bush for his recent attack on the Confederate flag, describing it as a new opinion. Except, it isn't at all.
