The double standard our media impose on child sexual abuse is garishly obvious. On August 14, The Washington Post set the stage for the coming American visit of Pope Francis with another splashy front-page story on a man still berating the Catholic Church after being abused by a priest from 1969 to 1976.    

But on August 21, after a court sentenced former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck, 48, for sexually abusing a 15-year old boy merely a year ago, the Post ignored it completely. Apparently there was no room. That boy’s family had no media advocate there.

Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell and MRC Latino Director Ken Oliver-Mendez issued the following statements in the wake of Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos’ crass abandonment last night of professional journalism standards and protocol.

The fascination of the news media with Donald Trump is ironic, to say the least. For people who have long lamented the domination of Big Money in politics, these reporters are presenting Mr. Big Money himself with a ticker tape parade of free media.

It could be considered hypocritical, too. Big Money is a bad thing – unless they’re the ones making it. Fox’s 24 million viewers for their debate proved Trump’s market value; ever since that debate, it’s been all media, all the time for him.

The churning of market forces in television are once again forcing the question of why Americans are spending hundreds of millions of tax dollars a year on public broadcasting. On August 13, HBO announced it was buying all-new episodes of the iconic PBS show Sesame Street, delaying their debut on PBS for nine months.

Decades of liberal mockery of Republicans for wanting to “kill Big Bird” just collapsed in an ugly pile. The show that was supposedly dedicated to poor kids in “underserved” communities was just sold to the highest-bidding paywall in Yuppie Land. Before that they were negotiating with Amazon and Netflix as well.

After six devastating hidden-camera interviews, the best Planned Parenthood and its top-dollar crisis managers can muster in their defense is to protest that they were “heavily edited.” Of course they were. All video is edited. It's why they call it "produced." Without offering evidence of exculpatory evidence withheld, the charge is as meaningless as Planned Parenthood is evil.

But have you seen any of this Planned Parenthood video on the news? It's been so completely edited that virtually nothing remains.

It’s been six years since a Michael Moore mockumentary struggled at the box office. Capitalism: A Love Story grossed a paltry $14.3 million, less than an eighth the take of his hit Fahrenheit 911. The long wait for the next Moore spectacle is almost over. The day before the next 9/11 anniversary, Moore’s new America-bashing film Where To Invade Next will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, where movies about America by an American make their debut.

As usual, the film’s “principal cast” is just Michael Moore, egomaniac. Moore boasted he hadn’t done a TV interview in a year. (Thank the Lord for small favors.) And succeeded wildly in keeping this film a secret (ditto).

As she runs to hold on to her base against an openly declared socialist in the Democratic primaries, Hillary Clinton is declaring she intends to go even further than President Obama and his radical executive amnesty efforts. She continues to defend Planned Parenthood even after those horrific videos documented the ghastly sale of baby body parts for profit. She is wrapping herself in a gay agenda, viciously attacking religious freedom.

But it’s the Republicans that are the extremists.

Five years ago, Katie Couric exemplified our secular media’s Islamophilia when on an online show at CBS, she proclaimed  "Maybe we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show. I know that sounds crazy, but The Cosby Show did so much to change attitudes about African-Americans in this country, and I think sometimes people are afraid of what they don't understand.”

Now online at Yahoo, Couric is still singing from the same songbook, hosting two Muslim comedians in a discussion headlined “Fighting Islamophobia, one joke at a time.” Couric asked, “What ultimately do you think will have to be done to make people more educated, more tolerant, more accepting?” One of them, Maysoon Zayid, quipped, “I think we need a Muslim Bachelor or Bachelorette. I think that’s what would be the great equalizer, and that would change everything.”

"When a lion’s death receives more than four times the coverage in one week than five shocking Planned Parenthood videos showing potentially criminal acts do over three weeks, the media’s moral compass isn’t just broken, it's dead and soulless." -- Media Research Center President Brent Bozell

Arrogant liberal journalists naturally assume that conservative talk radio only succeeds in making Americans dumber. They reach this conclusion by avoiding conservative talk radio entirely. But the overwhelming majority would never dare appear on one of these shows and debate the conservative host. If one of them ever entered the ring with Mark Levin, they'd invoke the "mercy rule" before the first commercial break.

In recent years, Levin has matched a brainy talk show with a series of brilliant political books. The latest is called Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People and the Future. It’s a good bet that no liberal journalist will read it, no liberal newspaper will review it, and that no liberal network would imagine calling up Levin for an interview. They are too busy advocating tolerance and diversity.

In 2002, it was considered scandalous when Bob Woodward revealed Fox News boss Roger Ailes had sent a "back-channel message" to President Bush urging tough talk on terrorism shortly after 9/11.

In the Obama administration, journalists have sauntered in and out of White House meetings with (not notes sent to) President Obama, with no brow-furrowing and harrumphs from their peers. Still, it came as a surprise when Politico reported that liberal comedian and “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart made two secret visits to the White House. Controversial? Not on your life. Politico gushed it “speaks volumes about Stewart and his reach.”

The Center for Medical Progress has now issued a third recording of Planned Parenthood officials explaining their grotesque trafficking in baby body parts. It is even more devastating than the first two.

The “news” media barely covered the second installment.  They will probably pass over this one altogether. Trump World is apparently far more important than the extermination of babies for profit.

The end of the Supreme Court term was depressing for conservatives. The double-whammy of a 50-state mandate for gay marriage and the upholding of Obamacare sounded the alarms for religious freedom. All that unease is measurable. 

Credit The Washington Post for doing precisely that. The polling team has just reported, “Liberals have won a string of victories on gay marriage and health care reform this year, but a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds a large majority of Americans are unhappy with where the nation is headed on social issues.”

When the hardcore Left met in Phoenix for the Netroots Nation conference, the networks didn't see a problem when socialist Barnie Sanders gets bum-rushed off the stage early for not being leftist enough.

The Left assaulted Martin O'Malley as "tone deaf" for insisting that all lives matter, but they are the ones who don't realize most voters see "all lives matter" as the most reasonable and most humanitarian slogan.

Once again, a courageous group of pro-life activists has produced a damning sting video of Planned Parenthood, and this one has exposed the most outrageous behavior yet. This isn’t the abortion conglomerate protecting pimps or statutory rapists as they seek abortions. This is the selling of the  organs of babies after they’ve been killed.

The video will chill you to the bone. It cannot be described as anything but what it is: evil.

On the day Scott Walker would announce in Wisconsin that he was running for president, The New York Times offered a typical takedown on the front page. “Admiring voters” found him to be authentic and approachable, but there were two words these fans apparently did not use: “Smart” and “sophisticated.”

That might be because liberal snobs at the Times think that those words are defined by how liberal you are. Those are qualities you get from reading the Times. Their own ads have touted them for giving the customer “depth” and “breadth” and “insights.” Conservatives are dumb...but they have hope if they put enough of The New York Times into their brain every day.

For decades now, the liberal “news” media have demonstrated a dramatic tilt toward the gay agenda, beginning with their notion that there is no such thing as a “gay agenda.” But now as the Supreme Court mandated gay “marriage” on all 50 states the liberal world is celebrating the agenda it has been pushing for decades.

Television coverage has been the usual appalling agitprop, but in this case it was also a victory lap. News segments have been either unanimous in their "analysis" or, if "balance" is presented, stacked by about five to one. Simply put, a debate is not allowed, just as it is not allowed on global warming, gun rights, abortion and a host of other liberal imperatives. So much for free speech.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign again signaled its contempt for the press during a July 4 parade in New Hampshire. Aides brought out ropes to cordon off the media covering her. It was the perfect metaphor for a “news” media so cowed by their candidate that they would allow such a humiliating action.

The images lit up Twitter on the holiday, but their reaction – or lack thereof – tells you all you need to know about their journalistic pride.

To look at virtually anything produced by Hollywood is to register confirmation that the libertine Left cherishes clogging our popular culture with vulgarities. The messaging in movies, television and particularly music is punctuated deliberately and unnecessarily with all manner of language designed to offend.

But when it comes to perfectly decent speech -- spoken innocently with no bad intention -- those same liberals need smelling salts.  Welcome to the wacky world of “micro-aggressions,” where conversation becomes a minefield of political correctness.

Friday’s gay-marriage mandate from the Supreme Court is merely the latest “landmark” decision on the slippery slope toward obliterating any definition of consensual deviancy. We haven’t defined deviancy down. We’ve shredded it.

Now, it’s social conservatives who have become the focus of fear, violence, and discrimination for maintaining their deeply held religious views that homosexuality is a sin and that “gay marriage” is an act of cultural deconstruction.
