He had stiff competition at Thursday night's MRC DisHonors Awards in Rachel Maddow and Charlie Rose, but MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell richly deserved his 2015 Puppy Love Award for gushing over President Obama as having written "the most honest and open book... ever written by a president" with his memoir Dreams of My Father.
Friday on MBSNC’s NewsNation, Tamron Hall addressed Ben Carson’s statements on gun control and how he would have dealt with the gunman at Umpqua. Tamron would entertain the attacks on Carson by Matt K. Lewis and Joan Walsh. Lewis accused Carson of opining where he shouldn't and should know better. While adding her own allegation that Carson would have tried to have the children assault a gunman, Hall appeared to confuse the status of college students at Umpqua with those of elementary school children at Newtown. Finally, Walsh attacked Carson supporters, claiming they have an appetite for cruel and delusional comments.
Previewing President Obama’s latest interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes with Steve Kroft, the 60 Minutes correspondent and the co-hosts of Friday’s CBS This Morning fawned over the President’s performance as “feisty” and proof that he finds his final years in office “liberating” as he does not have to go before voters again.
On Friday, all three broadcast networks read from the same liberal script as hosts and correspondents predicted doom for the Republican Party following Kevin McCarthy’s withdrawal from the race for Speaker of the House. Leading off NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie breathlessly proclaimed: “Congress in chaos. House Republicans racing to find a new speaker this morning. Bitterly divided Republicans now scrambling for a replacement.”
Former U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill, a member of the SEAL team which killed Osama bin Laden, honored us at the Media Research Center by being our surprise guest at the 2015 Gala and DisHonors Awards.

The morning after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy shocked Congress by announcing he was dropping out of the race to become the next Speaker of the House, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today sprinted over to their analysts to tear into the “really pathetic” conservatives for creating a “chaotic” situation for the House that shows they’re “impossible to run.”
Who is taking more glee from the current Republican turmoil over the selection of the next Speaker: Democrats or the MSM—or do I repeat myself?
Today's Morning Joe featured a clip from Andrea Mitchell's interview of Ben Carson in which she asked: "what does this just say about the Republican brand and the Republican party. Can it survive after this kind of chaos?" Wishful thinking, Andrea?
Conservative comedian and talk show host Joe Piscopo brought the laughter to Thursday night’s 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards. While the rest of the dinner hammered the liberal media, “The Funnies” were a compilation of the year’s most humorous clips, as complied by the MRC.
To the surprise of no one, MSNBC ran to find the nearest token Republicans it could after shocking news that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) dropped out of Speaker of the House race and once such person was MSNBC political analyst and former 2008 McCain campaign adviser Steve Schmidt, who railed against the GOP for “hunting heretics” and not “converts.”
The Daily Beast's John Avlon, a supposed "No Labels" moderate, revealed his true liberal colors on Thursday's New Day on CNN during a discussion of Ben Carson's response to the mass shooting in Oregon. Alisyn Camerota pointed out how competitor Lindsey Graham rebuked Dr. Carson, and wondered why the "rational" senator wasn't getting more traction. Avlon replied, "Responsible is a net negative for Republicans right now. Instead of trying to be more responsible, you try to be more irresponsible, more inflammatory, get more attention, and play to the base, which already deeply polarized and inflamed."
During a fascinating and wide-ranging interview on the Wednesday edition of Charlie Rose’s PBS show, Fox News Channel (FNC) host Megyn Kelly pushed back at liberal feminists and the very label for their complete double standard in the treatment of conservative and pro-life women (and specifically Sarah Palin). The issue came up when Rose asked Kelly if she was an advocate like many of his personal friends in that they’re “constantly making us and helping us remember how much we need to do with respect to women and equal pay.”
