In the only coverage of the upcoming midterm election on Thursday's network morning shows, CBS This Morning offered a surprisingly positive profile of Mitt Romney's popularity on the campaign trail contrasted with President Obama's absence amid sinking poll numbers. Correspondent Nancy Cordes opened the report by proclaiming: "You could almost call it the Romney redemption tour. Two years after his crushing loss, he is now the most sought after Republican on the campaign trail."

Cordes announced: "In all, Romney has headlined 44 fundraisers and campaign events this year, in 21 states....clearly the center of attention. Posing for pictures, signing books. The crowd at this diner in Atlanta applauded when he sat down to have a hot dog."

Is the U.S. government doing enough to screen travelers potentially carrying Ebola into the country?

That question was ignored by the vast majority of stories on the three broadcast network’s news programming, even after Thomas Eric Duncan was diagnosed with Ebola after coming to the U.S. from Liberia. Duncan died from the disease in a Dallas hospital on Oct. 8.

On Thursday morning, the Washington Post reported that senior White House officials knew that an Obama volunteer hired a prostitute during the infamous Colombia prostitution scandal of 2012 but Team Obama tried to cover up such information during the official investigation. Despite the Post report, CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to acknowledge the story during its Thursday morning broadcast. ABC's Good Morning America and NBC’s Today predictably ignored the report altogether.

At a time where TV series and sit-coms are full of the liberal leftist’s agenda, ranging from “Hillary for President” propaganda to trying to find humor and justification in abortion, Tim Allen’s show “Last Man Standing” is a breath of fresh air.

Unlike his counterparts and competition which are trying to stay edgy, politically correct and loyal to Obama and Hillary, Tim Allen isn’t afraid to say it like it is.

At the Daily Beast, former Rachel Maddow Show guest host Ana Marie Cox reported about her participation in a Minnesota panel organized by Bill Maher to discuss the “worst Congressman in America,” conservative congressman Jon Kline. Cox claimed the event exposed “The no-contest divorce between Republican talking points and reality.”

In addition to the usual liberal list of “antis” applied to conservatives, they’re now anti-breather?

Elite Dems across America might be scuttling away from Barack Obama.  But the president can count on at least one man to stand by him: MSNBC's Thomas Roberts.  On today's Morning Joe, Roberts accused Leon Panetta of criticizing President Obama for base motives: "getting paid" off his book, and currying close ties with Hillary Clinton.

Roberts' lame attempt to undermine Panetta came after Joe Scarborough and Mark Halperin [citing Ron Fournier] said Panetta's criticism of Obama echoes what elite Dems from Washington to Hollywood are saying in private—but are afraid to express in public.

Graham pointed out that when the former Secretary of Defense gave his first interview to CBS’s 60 Minutes, neither one of the other two major broadcast networks (ABC or NBC) covered it and the result was the same with O’Reilly’s interview.

Speaking on how “especially upsetting again” it was that none of the networks joined O’Reilly in asking Panetta about the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 attack in Benghazi. On what Panetta said about Benghazi, Graham thought that “Panetta's answers on that were really weak.”

The New York magazine blogger says that Rush not only “cannot stop talking about” slavery but “believes that, rather than a blight on white America, it should be seen, in a world-historical context, as a point in its favor.”

On Wednesday night, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley made no mention of the results from the latest CBS News poll that gave President Obama and Democrats poor marks ahead of the November 4 midterm elections on issues ranging from the economy to ISIS to terrorism to who voters are most likely to vote for. 

Regarding the midterm elections, Republicans find themselves ahead of Democrats on both a generic ballot and specific issues. Republicans have a six point lead against Democrats overall (49 percent to 43 percent with those leaning left or right, 46 percent to 40 percent without) and a five point lead who voters would like most to see takeover the Senate (47 percent to 42 percent). Independents sided with the GOP by a full 30 points over Democrats (57 percent to 27 percent).

Heard the latest outrageous remark by Rush Limbaugh? No?! That's OK, neither has anyone else.

Liberal radio host Alan Colmes has become the latest in a long line of left wingers to vilify Limbaugh by claiming he said something that only they somehow managed to hear.

MSNBC's Joy Reid set aside nearly six minutes of air time on Wednesday's The Reid Report to letting homosexual activists Larry Kramer and Dan Savage boast about their longtime involvement in the far-left LGBT movement. Reid gave Kramer a platform to wax ecstatic about his founding of the radical group ACT-UP, as well as boost his play/movie The Normal Heart. Savage hyped his It Gets Better Project, and sang the praises of Kramer during the segment

"The new HealthCare.gov is set to open for broad testing by insurers on Tuesday, but they’re not going to be publicly talking—or tweeting—about it," a Wall Street Journal reporter noted in a story filed October 7, citing a "new confidentiality agreement" that includes "any information describing... the performance or functionality" of the federal ObamaCare Web portal. Naturally the broadcast news programs for Wednesday, October 8, failed to cover the development.

On Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-anchor Gayle King was charmed by Democratic Senate candidate Mark Pryor’s selfie with Bill Clinton as she effused: “Everybody likes a selfie.” 

However King, nor anyone else at CBS has yet to report on the Arkansas Senator’s response to a basic question about ebola that was so bad it went viral and even caused MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski to shout: “Stop it!” four times before she ridiculed: “A sweet, little, nice, gentle question, and the guy just collapsed!”
