Isn’t it funny how anti-religion liberal elitists are so quick to blame Christianity when a Christian messes up, as if the failure to live up to an ideal is the ideal’s fault.

Yesterday HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps and guest, entertainment journalist Dayvee Sutton, commented on the continuing Duggar drama. According to a statement released by the Duggar family, the married man and father of four children recently decided to check himself into a long-term treatment center after being the subject of two major scandals this year.

During an article posted Tuesday by Jim Romenesko on his website, the retired newsman relayed what happened when David Sze -- a member of Arianna Huffington's research staff -- got more than he bargained for last week when he contacted professional journalist Laurel Lipton, asking to use information she had reported in a book the co-founder of the liberal Huffington Post is in the process of writing, with the promise of citing that research.

Lipton responded angrily, stating: “The rapacious Ms. Huffington seems to believe that journalism skills are worth nothing, and that my beleaguered colleagues and I should be thrilled to help her make hundreds of millions of dollars in return for 'exposure.'”

Did Rush Limbaugh force Fox News, in the wake of the Donald Trump/Megyn Kelly dust-up, to back down and welcome Trump back on its network?  That's what New York Times reporter Nick Confessore suggested on today's Morning Joe.

Asked by Mika Brzezinski who was the most powerful person in the media today, Confessore responded: "I think Fox or Rush Limbaugh [whose last name Confessore pronounced "Lim-bow], right? In this primary, right? There were two institutions that could have put a stop to Trump, talk radio and Fox. And talk radio likes him and Fox backed down."

Sometimes, imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery.

“Once again, cultural appropriation is igniting a flurry of controversy,” wrote The Huffington Post’s Julee Wilson. The writer referred to a hair tutorial featured in the August issue of Allure: “You (Yes, You) Can Have An Afro*.” The asterisk beneath read: “*even if you have straight hair.”  

“It’s no surprise that the article, presumably aimed toward white women, is causing quite the commotion,” continued Wilson. “The Afro style in particular would have been an amazing opportunity to use a black actress, and yet there were no actresses of color used in the feature.”

Jeff Schweitzer heralded the discovery of an apparent Earth-like planet as a nail in the coffin for religion in a Thursday item on Huffington Post. Schweitzer, a scientist, "rationalist," and former Clinton administration senior policy analyst contended that "with this discovery, we come ever closer to the idea that life is common in the universe," and added that religions would "all will come out and say such a discovery is completely consistent with religious teachings. My goal here is to declare this as nonsense before it happens."

Arianna Huffington is no pachyderm, politically speaking, but like the elephant, she apparently never forgets--or forgives.  Three years ago, Donald Trump called Huffington "unattractive both inside and out."  Arianna has now returned the favor, relegating HuffPo's coverage of Trump to its entertainment section.

On today's Morning Joe, HuffPo's Sam Stein was put in the unenviable position of defending his boss's decision, arguing that Trump is a mere "lounge act" whose position in the polls is simply "sustained by the media."  Joe Scarborough blasted the decision as "absolutely absurd," and Mika Brzezinski, in the unkindest-but-truest cut of all, said that many would argue that one Barack Obama was similarly sustained by the media in 2008.

In June, Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley unveiled a "climate change plan." The press loved it. Glowing articles appeared in many place, including the Washington Post, USA Today, The Hill and the Huffington Post, whose Kate Sheppard wrote that the former Maryland Governor had "Just Set An Extremely High Bar ... For 2016 Democratic Contenders."

Well, if they're so wired into climate change, why are they ignoring O'Malley's claim yesterday, in an interview with Bloomberg News, that climate change, aka the sanitized term for global warming, is largely responsibe for the rise of ISIS? Answer: Embarrassing comments by leftists are ignored until a Republican or conservative criticizes them. Then the story can be admitted into the news as a "so-and-so attacks" item.

Careful, Huffington Post. Your bias is showing. Actually your bias is screaming out loud with the announcement by HuffPo Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim and their Editorial Director Danny Shea that they would no longer report on the Donald Trump campaign in their political coverage. Instead their coverage of Trump will take place in their Entertainment section. Think I'm kidding? Well, read the announcement that basically says that the Huffington Post is chock full of bias as you can see from the very snarky title, A Note About Our Coverage Of Donald Trump's 'Campaign':

Talk about the irony – a Latina actress named America blasting presidential candidate Donald Trump on recent comments he made describing illegal immigrants.

America Ferrera is best known for her television role on “Ugly Betty” and has been an outspoken supporter for Democrats and immigration issues. In an an open letter to Trump on The Huffington Post, Ferrera actually thanking him for his comments because it would be a catalyst for driving more Latin/Hispanic voters to the polls:

Look at the data. That’s what former Gov. John Sununu of New Hampshire recently told Huffington Post Live about climate change.

Sununu’s June 15 appearance with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski was to discuss his new book “The Quiet Man,” which offers an insider’s perspective of George H.W. Bush’s presidency. Sununu served as White House Chief of Staff during that time.

On Friday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a discussion of revelations that Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal is a white woman who has spent years pretending to be black, liberal CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill oddly asserted that her actions constitute "the ultimate exercise in white privilege."

Ironically, after enumerating several reasons why blacks may want to pretend to be white for gain instead of the reverse, Hill ended up fretting that Dolzal may have deprived the university that hired her of being able to discriminate against her for being white if they wanted to hire an actual African-American to teach African-American studies.
