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.”

Despite a four-hour running time, NBC’s Today on Thursday skipped any mention of the latest on the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal. CBS This Morning managed 25 seconds. ABC’s Good Morning America offered 27 seconds. GMA’s Dan Harris highlighted an Associated Press report claiming, “Clinton's private e-mail server was the target of attempted cyber attacks from China, South Korea and Germany.” He added, “A contractor hired to protect Clinton's private information warned that her server was vulnerable.”

ABC, NBC and CBS on Thursday immediately pounced on a tweet by Ruper Murdoch in which the Fox News chairman suggested that Ben Carson would be America’s first “real” black president.

On Thursday, NBC’s Today joined CNN in promoting the latest issue of People magazine, which demanded congressional action on gun violence. At the top of the morning show, co-host Savannah Guthrie heralded: “People gets political. The glossy magazine known more for its celebrity scoops and red-carpet fashions wades into one of the most controversial issues in America. Is the magazine taking sides?”

For weeks now, Joe Scarborough has been expressing befuddlement over Ben Carson's appeal.  It boiled over on today's Morning Joe, as Scarborough went on an extended anti-Carson rant.

Scarborough unleashed after clips were played from town halls in Iowa and New Hampshire in which Republican voters expressed strong support for the notion of Carson as a qualified president. Calling Carson unqualified to be president, Joe railed that he'd seen people like Carson on school boards who got into trouble because they were in "over their heads."

Embattled 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down for her latest interview on Wednesday and surprisingly, the liberal media’s questioner in Judy Woodruff of the PBS NewsHour (and Clinton Foundation donor) came prepared and hit Clinton on issues ranging from her e-mail scandal to the administration’s misjudgment of Russia’s global threat to allied super PACs attacking socialist Bernie Sanders and possible candidate Joe Biden.

The major broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC all omitted from their Wednesday evening newscasts the latest noteworthy comment from Vice President Joe Biden that the Republican Party is “beating” up Hispanics but instead continued harping on Ben Carson’s response to how he’d react if he came face-to-face with a mass shooter.

Following Hillary Clinton’s latest flip-flop and move to the left in opposing the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the CBS Evening News saw no interest in informing their viewers of this announcement after she strongly backed it while secretary of state in President Barack Obama’s first term. In contrast, both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News surprisingly stepped up to the plate to cover this story with full stories along with the fact that both correspondents labeled Clinton’s decision a “flip-flop” from her time in the Obama administration.

Leave it to Chris Matthews to find a way to blast the GOP as racist and xenophobic in a softball promotional segment plugging a new book on the life and politics of the late Jack Kemp.

On Monday’s NBC Today, correspondent Peter Alexander heralded efforts to get Joe Biden to enter the 2016 presidential race: “This morning the campaign calling for a Biden campaign is now up and running. Today NBC News is getting an exclusive first look at the first pro-Biden ad to hit the air, produced in hopes of drafting the Vice President into the 2016 race.”

On Wednesday's New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo and Michaela Pereira marveled over the "huge step" and "unprecedented move" by People magazine in publishing a "call to action" on the issue of gun violence. The celebrity-centered publication printed the names and phone numbers of all 535 members of Congress, and called on "readers to contact their elected representatives to make their voices heard" on the subject. Pereira wondered, "Are we at a tipping point? Are we at a tipping point in the nation when so many of us are saying, not again – not again?!"
