Friday's The Situation Room on CNN ran a report by correspondent Tom Foreman fretting over the Confederate flag's presence in a part of the South Carolina capitol grounds that is reserved as a tribute to the state's history. Even though the report acknowledged that the flag is padlocked into place so that it cannot be flown at half staff in times of tragedy, Foreman still worried over the fact that the flag has not been lowered after the Charleston church massacre as he began the report:

More liberal media double standards: The New York Times, which would move, ahem, heaven and earth to get religion out of politics when it comes to companies that refuse on religious grounds to pay for birth control, eagerly embraces the perceived moral authority of Christianity when it comes to its leftist issues like global warming. Exhibit A: Avowedly activist environmental reporter Justin Gillis praising environmentalist Christians on the front page of Sunday's edition: "For Faithful, Social Justice Goals Demand Action on Environment."

David Remnick, the former Washington Post correspondent who now runs The New Yorker, is one of the most unctuous Obama boosters still going in the liberal media. The Charleston shooting, for Remnick, was another occasion to attach mass shooter Dylann Roof to people who hurled “epithets” at Obama on Twitter.

While the climate change content in Pope Francis’s new encyclical has been heavily covered by Univision, Telemundo and MundoFox, other core teachings in the encyclical, on such bedrock issues as abortion and gender, continue to be entirely ignored by these networks.

Michael O’Donnell is eager to push back against the belief that Reagan ranks with Franklin Roosevelt as a great 20th-century president. In his review of H.W. Brands’ Reagan: The Life in the Washington Monthly’s June/July/August issue, O’Donnell wrote that “Roosevelt saved the nation from an existential threat (the Great Depression), while Reagan merely steered it out of a funk (the 1970s). Roosevelt enacted structural reforms to protect the most vulnerable members of society, [whereas] Reagan systematically set about dismantling those reforms.”

Moreover, argued O’Donnell, Reagan influenced today’s politics for the worse. O’Donnell calls him “the author of many of our current predicaments as a nation and a society…The government-is-the-enemy mind-set that pervades the right today comes to us from Barry Goldwater via Ronald Reagan. As our roads, bridges, and schools fall apart around us, we have them to thank.”

The Cardinal couldn't have been more polite, but it didn't take much reading between the lines to get what he was asserting: that when it comes to the encyclical on the environment, Rush Limbaugh doesn't understand what the Pope was saying.

On today's Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace played a clip of Rush saying that the encyclical "is suggesting is that everyone should vote for the Democrat party. How in the hell else do you interpret it when the Pope sounds like Al Gore on global warming and climate change?" Responded Cardinal Donald Wuerl: "one of the great blessings of America" is that "we're all allowed to speak our mind even if we don't have all the facts. Even if we don't have a clear view of what the other person is saying."

On Thursday's edition of The View on ABC, co-host Rosie Perez took offense at Jeb Bush for suggesting Hillary Clinton had no accomplishments in the Senate or as Secretary of State in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News.

She fell back on a weird list claiming Hillary unveiled a food-security program and saved a Turkish-Armenian accord, and prevailed over Joe Biden to "send an additional 21 troops" to Afghanistan.

In an interview with director Judd Apatow excerpted in the women's magazine Elle, actress and comedienne Sarah Silverman shocked few by suggesting she didn't learn any manners until she dated Jimmy Kimmel.

She said "a lot of the human etiquette I learned in life I learned from, like, thank-you notes and dating Jimmy Kimmel. I have great parents, and they both taught me great things, but my formative years were boundaryless."

From Tuesday’s Special Report on FNC, Jimmy Fallon’s take on where CNN placed the state of New York on a map the cable network displayed the week before.

While CBS News released a report by outsiders on Dan Rather's 2004 debacle, NBC News used insiders to report on the wild exaggerations of Brian Williams. CBS released its resulted to the public, and NBC is clamming up.

Former ABC and CNN reporter Mark Feldstein lamented: "They have kept their report secret. They have not revealed it to the public. The investigation was held in secret by internal employees who once answered to Brian Williams. The fact that they`re not releasing this report, frankly, is suspect, and it raises suspicions that NBC would never accept from a politician or corporation it were investigating.”

Watched Fox News today? Taken a look at what's posted on Drudge Report or The Daily Caller? Doing any of this makes you a thought criminal and potentially violent, at least according to liberal comic Bill Maher.

Wasting no time politicizing the mass murder of nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., Maher on his show last night literally pointed a finger at one of his guests, Daily Caller columnist Matt Lewis, and suggested that Lewis's website, along with Drudge and Fox News, are complicit in the massacre at the historic house of worship.
