Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh had some harsh words Wednesday for the media's coverage of the George Zimmerman murder trial.

As it becomes clearer and clearer the prosecution really didn't have any case, Limbaugh told his audience, "The media is totally invested in George Zimmerman being convicted as a racist 'white Hispanic'...and, as such, there's panic now. So much so, ladies and gentlemen, so much so that there is now talk and agitating for race riots" (video follows courtesy DailyRushbo with fuller transcript courtesy

In 2010, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said that he didn’t think Democrats wanted to stop illegal immigration.

On Tuesday’s Hardball, the host went even further saying that Democrats “believe in illegal immigration” and this is why they “don’t really believe in border enforcement” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

On CNN's Monday night special "The N Word," guest Tim Wise claimed that the Supreme Court used that racial slur against all black Americans through its rulings on the Voting Rights Act and affirmative action.

"I mean, the reality is, we have a Supreme Court that in the last ten days has just basically called 40 million black folks that word without saying it by restricting or limiting the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and basically ending for all intent and purpose or, at least, limiting in many ways, affirmative action," Wise insisted.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz) fired a gun Monday for the first time since she was shot in January 2011.

As odd as it might seem, she did this as she and her husband Mark Kelly set off on their "Rights and Responsibilities" bus tour pushing for stricter gun control laws.

The Big Three networks still can't get enough of Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, nearly a week after her extended filibuster against pro-life legislation on June 25, 2013. All three brought on Davis during their Sunday morning talk programs, and continued hyping the supportive response on social media that Davis received in response to her "epic eleven-hour filibuster", as NBC' s Janet Shamlian sympathetically labeled it on Monday's Today.

ABC's Jeff Zeleny conducted a beyond softball interview of the liberal politician on This Week, and was awed when the liberal politician showed off the pink running shoes that she wore during the filibuster [audio available here; video below the jump]. Bob Schieffer touted Davis' "wonderful biography" on Face the Nation, and added that "few outside Texas knew of her until last week when she became an overnight sensation." NBC and CBS each devoted another full report to Davis on their Monday morning newscasts.

In the latest episode of CNN's Inside Man, new host Morgan Spurlock attacked those who bought guns in the wake of the Newtown shootings, and told Americans they don't "need" AR-15 rifles or high-capacity magazines. The episode "Guns" featured Spurlock working at a Virginia gun store.

"I'm completely blown away by the response that people have had to Newtown. That on the heels of a tragedy like this, that they feel that they have to arm themselves," Spurlock arrogantly lectured the gun customers. He also accused the NRA of lying to the public and cast some NRA members as gullible and paranoid.

As NewsBusters routinely reports, one of the tricks the liberal media employs to discredit conservatives is to seek opinions from supposedly right-leaning commentators who are really nothing more than Republicans In Name Only often sharing much the same views espoused by the left.

One such "conservative" media darling is ABC political contributor Matthew Dowd who on Sunday's This Week said, "If I were people, I wouldn't be taking political advice from Bill Kristol who selected Sarah Palin as one of his leading figures in the national Republican Party, which was obviously a disaster in 2008" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

What is it about the folks at NBC News who seem to think that they can routinely selectively and deceptively edit what people say in order to misconstrue their words and meaning?

A few weeks ago, a web-only Rock Center video was published at that deceptively edited an Hasidic Rabbi to give the appearance that he was trying to cover up or hide sexual abuse within his community (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Andrew Sullivan had a very interesting discussion with CNN's Fareed Zakaria Sunday about last week's Supreme Court decisions involving same-sex marriage.

In light of the media's almost universal support for the rulings and the way opponents have been routinely eviscerated, the most compelling thing Sullivan said was, "I'm very concerned, actually, that we may become intolerant of people who believe homosexuality is still sinful" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Readers are advised to prepare themselves for a rare dose of sanity and reality on television.

On CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday, journalism professor Steve Roberts actually said, "What's missing often in TV newsrooms: there are plenty of gays, there are very few people of faith and very  few evangelical Christians who in their own beliefs would be against gay marriage. And this has always bothered me" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
