The star of “Inside Amy Schumer” and last summer’s “Trainwreck” made sure of that. Since rising to “It Comic” status, Schumer has used her platform to speak out on a number of causes. She wants to be taken seriously. Even if she turns serious issues into yuk-yuk satires (that flunk the fact-check test).

On Friday's CBS Evening News, Steve Hartman hinted that the Bible Belt — and specifically, Alabama — was a dangerous place for homosexuals. Hartman pointed out that "a lot of people came out after Orlando" terrorist attack, but touted how "few took as big a risk as Jesse Johnson. Jesse's family lives in Jemison, Alabama, in the heart of the Bible Belt. Fly a flag here, and it better have just red, white, and blue."

Given the dominant media fervor in favor of more gun control, plus the favorable coverage the House Democratic sit-in stunt has received, it would certainly not be a shock to find a CNN anchor asking a question or two to a Democratic congressman pressing that the protest should have lasted longer or that they should go back to protesting again later. But when CNN's Brianna Keilar repeatedly pressed a Democratic congressman -- posing 10 questions in just six minutes along the lines that the protest did not last long enough, or that it should be resumed in the near future -- this was at the MSNBC level of liberal advocacy and bordering on a liberal media bias caricature.

Reacting to the shocking news of Great Britain’s decision to exit the European Union, UK-born Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney responded to “fearmongering” and offered an explanation of the voters’ discontent.

“The British have become increasingly frustrated by being ruled, essentially, in many aspects of their lives by an alien, foreign bureaucracy. Notably the bureaucrats in Brussels, Belgium,” Varney said in a simulcast with “Fox Business Network” and “Fox News Channel” on June 24.

During a press briefing on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi openly thanked people in the news media for creating an “echo chamber” that provided extensive coverage of the Democrats' “sit-in” seeking legislation to promote stricter gun control even though the Senate didn't approve a similar measure. “Thank you all,” the California Democrat said. “I never saw the gallery so full,” she stated before noting that her staff “gave me six pages today. Six small-print, full pages listing of newspapers around the country where the sit-in was on the front page. I thank you for that. Thank you all.”

On Friday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer observed that Britain’s vote to leave the European Union “would appear in the short term...[to be] a victory for Donald Trump and his political world view over Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and their political world view.” He turned to Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd and wondered: “Does Donald Trump get a bump out of this?”

During an interview with the cast of CBS This Morning, Bernie Sanders got a fiery reaction from the cast as they pestered him for not dropping out and endorsing presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

All three morning shows on Friday led with the “stunning” vote by Britain to exit the European Union, a move that is “rocking” the world. Yet, only ABC’s Good Morning America ignored the inconvenient fact that Barack Obama tried and failed to influence the vote this past spring. On CBS This Morning, Charlie Rose reminded, “President Obama visited in April and urged voters to stay in Europe.”

On Thursday's CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, host Baldwin and CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter took time to celebrate the House Democrats' ability to use social media to promote their sit-in protest over gun legislation in the U.S. Capitol in spite of the Republican leadership turning off the cameras. Baldwin gushed: "I think some of these members of Congress are more hip than I am on Snapchats. I mean, I was impressed. I mean, the Periscoping. How did they pull this off?" Stelter declared that it was "unprecedented and historic" for Democrats to utilize non-traditional media to draw attention to their protest: "But this was an unprecedented and historic moment because, you know, those television cameras controlled by the government. They always have been ever since the '80s, as Susan said. And yet, now, for the first time, there's an alternative."

Appearing on NBC’s Today, analyst and Daily Beast editor Christopher Dickey launched into a tirade against Britain’s vote to leave the European Union: “...they claim it says, right off the bat, is that they were tired of all the bureaucracy of the European Union, they didn’t want all the constraints, they want their sovereignty. But what this was really about is fear, xenophobia, in some cases, certainly racism.”
