Yet another example of the fluid, ever-evolving liberal concept of diversity.

Back in 1996, the Coalition for Civil Rights, a student group at Harvard Law School, ran a survey to determine whether law students at the school were happy with "the level of representation of women and minorities" on the faculty, according to the Harvard Crimson.

The Washington Post granted some space in their Sunday Outlook section to Jonah Goldberg of National Review, spinning off his new book The Tyranny of Cliches. He began with something familiar, how liberals pretend they aren't ideologues: "Liberals insist that they live right downtown in the “reality-based community,” and if only their Republican opponents weren’t so blinded by ideology and stupidity, then they could work with them."

That sounds a lot  like the "objective" and "mainstream" media we have to endure. But he also went straight to President Obama:

CBS's Bob Schieffer ended Sunday's Face the Nation by disgracefully connecting the 20th anniversary of the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles to Trayvon Martin.

After showing videos of the King beating as well as the aftermath of the criminal trial, Schieffer stated - with a black and white picture of the Sanford teenager on the screen - "When the Trayvon Martin case came to public attention this year, King said the screams on those tapes reminded him of his own" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Peter Bergen, CNN's national security analyst, said Sunday that President Obama was informed by CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell in December 2010 "that the circumstantial case that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was better than the circumstantial case that bin Laden was in Abbottabad."

This astonishing revelation was made on CBS's Face the Nation (video follows with transcript and commentary):

USA Today put racism front and center in Friday’s weekend edition. Beneath a banner promo touting a big story in Sports on “Racist tweets reflect poorly on hockey, Boston,” the paper highlighted the alleged similarities between the Rodney King beating in 1992 and the Trayvon Martin shooting today.

Reporters Marisol Bello, Haya el Nasser, and William M. Welch found “activists” and “scholars” to cry racism: “Both cases, 20 years apart, intensify the persistent debate over how fairly black men are treated by police and the courts. Activists, scholars and some of those involved in the cases say the incidents occurred because of a stereotype of black men as violent aggressors.”

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Sunday's Meet the Press tried to advance the bogus liberal position that women in America still only make 77 cents on the dollar compared to men.

Fortunately for viewers actually interested in the truth, Republican strategist Alex Castellanos was on the panel to correct her after marvelously teasing, "I love how passionate you are. I wish you were as right about what you're saying as you are passionate about it. I really do" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Get me outta here! I'm being forced in a most humiliating manner to reveal to all the world my profound ignorance of basic constitutional issues.

Something like that thought must have been rolling around inside the mind of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius while she completely choked under questioning about these legal issues by South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy. Even if you disagree profoundly with Sebelius you almost have to feel embarrassed by her pathetic performance last week at the House Education and Workforce Committee hearing. Fortunately for Sebelius her confessions of ignorance were completely ignored by the Mainstream Media but the video (and below the fold) lives on for all eternity to serve as a testament to liberal ignorance and arrogance.

Hillary Clinton says the expression on her face in that now iconic picture of the White House Situation Room taken the day Osama bin Laden was killed is "the way I usually look when my husband drags me to an action movie."

Such was told to NBC's Brian Williams for a Rock Center special to be aired Wednesday which was previewed on Sunday's Meet the Press (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

Parade Magazine, the nationwide Sunday newspaper supplement has a cover touting “How Top Chefs Stay Slim.” Two of the three cover subjects are gay: Art Smith, a former personal chef for Oprah Winfrey, and Cat Cora, an “Iron Chef” star.

Both are good subjects for a slimness cover: Smith lost 120 pounds after a diabetes diagnosis, and Cora lost 25 after giving birth to a son. Parade did dig into their personal lives, which might not have seemed as relevant if they chose chefs that were Republicans or Roman Catholics. They would protest it's not relevant, but then they make sure to slip the facts in:

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt gave a much-needed economics lesson to New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman on ABC's This Week Sunday.

During a lengthy discussion about liberal and conservative views on how to stimulate the currently soft recovery, Schmidt - a known Barack Obama supporter - marvelously said to his left-leaning co-panelist, "Surely you're not arguing that the government should hire all the unemployed people" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Per her bio, Gail Collins at the New York Times "joined the New York Times in 1995 as a member of the editorial board and later as an op-ed columnist. In 2001 she became the first woman ever appointed editor of the Times editorial page." So she was hanging with the Old Gray Lady in 2003.

The columnist's presence at the paper that year is quite relevant. You see, Ms. Collins has brought up the 1983 story of Seamus, the Mitt Romney family Irish setter, who the presumptive GOP presidential nominee put "into a dog carrier on the roof of his station wagon for a 12-hour trip to Ontario," on dozens of occasions in her Times column in the almost five years since the story first appeared. Yet during those five years, it seems she has never recognized (and if she has, she certainly has not been chastened by) the existence an exceptionally positive dog-related Romney story printed in her employer's own paper on July 8, 2003. It follows the jump (underlines are mine; presented in full for fair use and discussion purposes):

A truly shocking thing happened on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS Sunday.

The perilously liberal host - with journalistically corrupt ties to the current White House - came out against the millionaires' tax known as the Buffett Rule calling it "bad politics in the long run for Obama" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Jimmy Kimmel attacked conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner first calling him a slut and then jabbing him with a juvenile prescription drug joke.

The comedian also took a shot at HBO's Bill Maher while bashing Limbaugh and his "extreme" right-wing fans (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary, mild vulgarity warning):

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd would like to think her columns are full of keen and incisive thinking. But her columns on the Catholic Church have all the elegance of someone playing the piano with their head. Witness Dowd’s overwrought head-banging introduction on Sunday:

“IT is an astonishing thing that historians will look back and puzzle over, that in the 21st century, American women were such hunted creatures,” she begins. “Even as Republicans try to wrestle women into chastity belts, the Vatican is trying to muzzle American nuns.”

A year ago in March, an Investor's Business Daily editorial ("America's Enemies Don't Want U.S. Drilling") informed readers that "the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington put out a Twitter post expressing disappointment that the documentary 'Gasland' didn't win an Academy Award." Specifically: "Sadly, 'Gasland' didn't win an Oscar, because a Vzlan helped make it," Venezuela's Twitterer whined." IBD went on to note that "Gasland" had "a Venezuelan production assistant, Irene Yibirin, who ... (has) ties to the (Chavez) government's Foundation National Cinematheque. ... [O]n the site, she praised Chavez."

Why is this relevant? Well, as another IBD editorial on Thursday noted, EPA Region 6 Administrator Al Armendariz, who became deservedly infamous last week when his public articulation of his "Crucify Them" philosophy towards enforcement of environmental laws and regulations in a speech a year ago was exposed, really loves the film, which industry officials have shown is riddled with deceptions and outright falsehoods. Not only that, he was also involved in making it:
