Those poor, naive folks who have been expecting a mea culpa from Katie Couric for the deceptive insertion into her Under the Gun documentary of a long silence following a question directed at Virginia gun-rights supporters will be disappointed at what has transpired since the controversy arose.

As of Thursday afternoon, no one was genuinely apologizing for anything. Stephanie Soechtig, the film’s producer, employed a tired "I apologize if anyone was offended, but I didn't mean any harm" excuse — garbage which the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, as Tim Graham at NewsBusters noted, should cause anyone using it to lose "their standing as professionals." For her part, Couric issued a statement saying “I support Stephanie’s statement and am very proud of the film.” Early Thursday evening, however, Couric appeared to move into damage-control mode, but in a way that should forever earn her the nickname "Katie Coward."

During a fawning interview with former Vice President Al Gore aired on Monday’s NBC Today, correspondent Anne Thompson teed up the global warming activist to bash Republicans: “Do you see a Trump presidency undoing all the progress that the U.S. has made in the last ten years in the fight against climate change?” Thompson fretted: “This is a man who’s called climate change a ‘hoax’ and other words that we cannot use on network TV....So where's the hope?"

Left-wing bias; it’s not just for the news pages. The New York Times Weekend Arts roundup demonstrates how it saturates the paper, even -- perhaps especially -- in the paper’s Manhattan-centric cultural coverage, with rants about racist voter suppression in 2016 and how high-end art buyers "control the inequitable economy in America today."

During an interview with the stars of the Hollywood’s latest anti-capitalist screed, Money Monster, on Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Keir Simmons summed up the plot of the film: “In the movie, [George] Clooney is forced to wear an explosive vest by British rising star Jack O'Connell. Who lost his dead mother's money on stocks.” Simmons noted: “This guy is a terrorist, who you end up feeling sympathy for.”

Someone really should come up with a typesetter’s font for when our liberal betters to use when forced to write about things they disdain. We could call it “Helvetica Sneer,” and it would save busy cosmopolitan authors a lot of time and trouble.

According to GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), Disney has a big fat “F” for LGBT representation in their movies – meaning, there haven’t been any gay characters in children’s movies in 2015.  However, since Disney announced there will be a Frozen 2 in the works for 2018, a few frustrated Frozen lesbian fans are trying to use the movie to feature an alternative romance for Queen Elsa, a gay character – or in this case – a different kind of “queen.”

When a movie includes a song about how "love is an open door," the LGBT lobbyists will start writing, as USA Today reported. Alexis Isabel, a 17 year old “Feminist Culture” founder, the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend went viral last weekend, which made Isabel write a post for MTV as to why she started the movement.

Movie night! Tickets for the family to see grown men flying around in spandex: $50. Popcorn and soda: $20. Watching a movie GLAAD says doesn’t include enough gays: Priceless.

Gays and Lesbians Allied Against Defamation is the media speech police for all things LGBT (etc.). When GLAAD isn’t giving awards to CNN hosts, it’s counting how many gay characters appear in TV and movies, and demanding they be out of all proportion to the actual numbers of LGBT folks living in cities not named West Hollywood.

The MRC has spent many years documenting the liberal media’s bias towards climate alarmism, from warnings of an “inevitable” ice age, to misreporting 2014 as the “hottest year” on record.

As an expert on the media’s record of promoting fear of climate change, MRC President and Founder L. Brent Bozell moderated an invitation-only panel discussion on the subject featuring former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, climatologist Dr. David Legates and Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, host of a new documentary from CFACT: Climate Hustle.

Question to John Heilemann: what's your proof? On his With All Due Respect show this evening, interviewing Ice Cube of NWA, Heilemann flatly stated that the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Freddie Gray in Baltimore were instances of "police brutality." In the Brown case, the grand jury, which included three African-Americans, declined to bring an indictment against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot Brown. And President Obama's Justice Department under then AG Eric Holder cleared Wilson of civil rights violations in the shooting. 

In Baltimore, the the only result to date has been a mistrial. So what does Heilemann know that the judicial system doesn't about "police brutality" in those cases? Or was this just a case of Heilemann trying to prove to Ice Cube--who by the way displayed more equanimity than Heileman in his comments on this and other issues--that he was down with the struggle?

Call it Harry Potter & the Goblet of Grievance. 

J.K. Rowling has run afoul of the Indian indignation industry. According to Huffington Post, the author is in heap-big trouble for not being sufficiently sensitive to the diversity within the “Native American wizarding community.”
