Bill Maher on Friday attacked the media – particularly MSNBC’s Chris Matthews – for hypocrisy concerning how they handle sex scandals based on whether or not they like the politician involved.

The HBO Real Time host correctly pointed out that the Anthony Weiner-bashing Matthews absolutely adored John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton who were both involved in far worse sexcapades than the New York City mayoral candidate (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Bill Maher has said some disgusting things about religion before.

Possibly the most disgusting came on HBO’s Real Time Friday when the host actually said, “God in the Old Testament is a psychotic mass murderer” (video follows with transcript and commentary, file photo):

With Grover Norquist’s help, Bill Maher once again made a fool of himself Friday evening.

In the middle of an HBO Real Time discussion about ObamaCare, the host seemed shocked to hear that Bob Dole isn’t a real conservative leading Norquist to derisively comment to former Congressman Connie Mack (R-Fl.), “He doesn’t understand the difference between Reagan and Dole” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

HBO's Bill Maher wrote a check Friday evening that his body clearly can't cash.

During his "New Rules" segment, the Real Time host called Dr. Ben Carson a "drooling idiot" who's "half brilliant brain surgeon, half Tea Party dumbass" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

It seems even the CBS Late Show audience is tiring of Bill Maher.

On Tuesday, the HBO Real Time host was booed twice for tasteless jokes about the George Zimmerman verdict (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Professor and activist Cornel West made a comment Friday evening guaranteed to anger people on the left.

In an HBO Real Time discussion about the use of drones, after calling the current President a “war criminal” for killing innocent civilians, West observed that most liberals are “morally bankrupt” because they’d condemn George W. Bush for doing this but refuse to voice opposition to Barack Obama (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Like so many in the liberal media, Bill Maher is deeply concerned that George Zimmerman might end up being acquitted for killing Trayvon Martin.

On HBO’s Real Time Friday, the host joked, “If you are a Korean who owns a grocery store in Compton, you might want to get the fire extinguishers ready now” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

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.

Yet on Friday’s Stroumboulopoulos which airs at 11PM, Bill Maher was censored when he said “bulls—t” (video follows with commentary):

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

Appearing on CNN’s Stroumboulopoulos, Maher said, “You have to really be smart” to get on his HBO Real Time show (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Bill Maher just can't pass up an opportunity to attack George W. Bush,

Late Monday evening, he told his Twitter followers, "That Snowden don't quit!Personally, I'd rather be spied on by Bush than Obama. If someone had to read your e mails, wldn't U pick the idiot?"
