The ink on the SCOTUS ruling is barely dry, but Hollywood is already set to start celebrating the gay victory with more propaganda films. First up? HBO’s new documentary about the lawyers and gay couples who brought down Prop 8.

According to the New York Times, HBO announced this week that it is mere months away from finishing up a special documentary that will “chronicle the court battle to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage.” But the film won’t just showcase the legal battle; it will focus in on the gays involved – the “story of the couples behind the case.”

GOP strategist Ana Navarro is a CNN regular for good reason – she's the type of Republican the liberal media welcomes in their studios.

Now she's ripped a pro-life group for being "incomprehensible" in opposing Sen. Rob Portman's (R-Ohio) support of gay marriage. Navarro is so much a "big tent Republican," she lectured opponents of same-sex marriage back in March to "get into the 21st century."

It’s really been amazing this past week watching liberal media members that for years have been complaining about Republican filibusters almost universally celebrate Texas state Senator Wendy Davis’s (D) filibuster of an abortion bill that clearly would have passed if she hadn’t.

Count Bill Maher amongst the hypocrites, for having just two months ago called the filibuster a “quiet coup” that is a Constitutional problem, the HBO Real Time host Friday referred to Davis as a “new political star” and her actions as “heroic” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

As NewsBusters reported almost ad nauseum, Anthony Bourdain on his 9PM Sunday CNN program Parts Unknown regularly uttered profanities including varieties of the S-word without being censored.

Bill Maher may have said one of the dumbest – and therefore funniest! – things ever to come out of his mouth Friday.

As HBO’s preachy leftist drama “The Newsroom” about an Olbermann-type “news” show heads into its second season, Lacey Rose at The Hollywood Reporter revealed a raft of MSNBC personalities were part of 13 paid consultants series creator Aaron Sorkin hired to provide “realism” to the program.

Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Alex Wagner, and S.E. Cupp were all brought on board, as well as “MSNBC Republicans” Susan del Percio and Mark McKinnon.

HBO’s Bill Maher once again made a fool of himself on national television Friday.

Outgoing NBA commissioner David Stern granted an interview to Lee Hawkins of the Wall Street Journal on June 7, and Hawkins asked him about Bryant Gumbel’s characterization of Stern as a “plantation overseer” during the most recent contract negotiations with the NBA players union in 2011. He actually said Stern "always seemed eager to be viewed as some kind of modern plantation overseer treating NBA men as if they were his boys."

Stern slammed back, saying his works for the NBA "dwarf any contribution Bryant Gumbel has made" in bringing diversity in ownership and wealth for black players:
