I’ve always said that one of the characteristics of conservatism is a willingness to identify a thing by its proper name, and we know that conservative tendencies do not exactly run rampant throughout our newsrooms. So you can imagine my shock when I heard Univision’s late-night anchor properly refer to President Obama’s executive amnesty action as…President Obama’s executive amnesty. Here it is, in all its narrative-destroying glory:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a reformist conservative and Republican presidential hopeful for 2016, has become a media target, from making a stink of Walker evading an evolution question to obsessing over his college years. Next up: Ripping Walker's proposed cuts to the state university system's operating budget. New York Times reporter Julie Bosman took advantage of Tuesday's front page to portray Walker's university cuts as tarnishing the very ideal of the university in "2016 Ambitions Seen in Bid for Wisconsin Cuts."

Of all the broadcast network coverage Monday evening and Tuesday morning of ISIS terrorists beheading twenty-one Christians in Libya, only one reference was made on NBC's Today to President Obama's failed policy in Libya providing an opening to the Islamic extremists.

On Monday night, U.S. Federal Judge Andrew Hanen of Texas blocked the implementation of President Obama’s controversial executive action on immigration. Following the announcement, on Tuesday, the “big three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) morning shows all covered the setback for the Obama administration but only CBS This Morning provided a detailed account of the arguments against the administration's action.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren expressed outrage on Monday that The New York Times couldn’t put the massacre of 21 Christians in Libya on the front page of the paper. It came on A-6, under the headline “Islamic State Video Shows Beheadings of Egyptian Christians in Libya.”

On her Fox website, she wrote: “Something is seriously wrong with The New York Times... 21 Christians beheaded by ISIS in Libya and it is NOT page A1 in my New York Times edition — but buried on page A6. How could the beheading of 21 Christians not be front page?” She also took it to her TV show:

Businessman and TV host Donald Trump appeared on Access Hollywood, Monday night, to bash his old rival Brian Williams. On election night 2012, the now-disgraced anchor mocked Trump for some of his tweets. On Monday night, Trump gloated, “But I think [Williams is] finished, or he’s finished as we know him.”

On Tuesday, MSNBC host Jose Diaz-Balart featured back-to-back segments on immigration in the wake of a federal judge in Texas blocking implementation of President Obama’s executive action on immigration reform. Throughout the two segments, the Rundown host played up how the Texas judge’s ruling “reignites the debate within the GOP” and repeatedly insisted that any discussion of immigration reform was “toxic” among Republican primary voters.

The president and his acolytes in the Democratic Party and the liberal media love to rehash the trite, politically correct nonsense that ISIS is fundamentally un-Islamic because its horrendous actions are beyond the pale of what the vast majority of peaceful Muslims worldwide would ever countenance. But in a piece for the March edition of The Atlantic, hardly a right-wing publication, Graeme Wood delves deeply into the theology undergirding ISIS to prove that it's a thoroughly orthodox, hyper-puritanical brand of Islam finding much in accord with the life and teachings of Muhammad.

A liberal group funded by billionaire George Soros is accusing conservatives and the “religious right” of fear-mongering and slandering Islam. According to the Center for American Progress, the right has been coordinating to push “Sharia hysteria” which “mischaracterizes Sharia as a totalitarian ideology of hate and triumphalism committed to replacing the U.S. Constitution with a radical Islamic caliphate that will subordinate and punish all non-Muslim adherents.”

His instincts told him to be wary. Turns out that Rush Limbaugh's suspicions were well-founded.

On his radio broadcast Monday, the day after Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special on NBC, Limbaugh said SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels invited him on the show in the 1990s for a specific role -- to play Santa Claus.

According to MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes, global warming apparently trumps terror concerns such as ISIS. While much of the country is covered with snow and facing brutal cold, Hayes appeared on the February 17 edition of Last Call to warn: “The single most important thing we face globally is the fact that we are heating the planet to a level that is never before been tried, while also trying to have human civilization.”

Just a year after The New York Times Sunday Review piece warned of “The End of Snow?,” the East Coast was once again bracing for frigid temperatures and a major snowfall.

The winter storm that struck on President’s Day dumped a foot of snow in parts of Virginia, 4.1 inches near the White House, and 7 inches in Cape May, N.J. Boston braced for more snow, on top of its “snowiest February on record,” according to The Week. The city was already collapsing under the 58.5 inches of snow it got. A ski resort in Carlisle, Mass., had to close from too much snow. Ironic, given the Times’ warning that resorts “may no longer be viable in 30 years” because warming would reduce snow.

The liberal journalists at MSNBC used much of an exclusive interview with Supreme Court Justice Rather Bader Ginsburg to fixate on whether the elderly judge will retire and let Barack Obama name her replacement.  Anchor Rachel Maddow referred to it as the “awkward question that has lingered over the final two years” of Obama’s presidency.

CNN’s Brian Stelter reports “Jose Antonio Vargas, a journalist and undocumented immigrant, is joining forces with the Los Angeles Times to create a new section of the Times web site devoted to race, immigration and multiculturalism.”

In other words, the Times seems to be creating a lobbying site for illegal immigrants, headed by an illegal immigrant and amnesty lobbyist.

Mike Barnicle: proud member of the Barack Obama "terrible deeds in the name of Christ" school of moral blindness . . . 

Joe Scarborough opened today's Morning Joe with a protracted and impassioned plea for America—and in particular President Obama—to call out radical Islam by name. Mika Brzezinski was dubious, citing unspecified "difficult times" in the past when presidents used the wrong language. But taking Mika's misgivings a giant step further, Mike Barnicle flatly declared that we can't call radical Islam by name because "we're the Crusaders."
