The North Korean e-mail hack of Sony continues to haunt Hollywood. The leftist group WikiLeaks recently posted a searchable set of the documents and the London Daily Mail found a new scandal subject: Ben Affleck....and PBS.

Featured on the show Finding Your Roots, Affleck demanded (and got) the censorship of a slave-holder in his family tree, creating a scandal for the public-broadcasting network. The show that aired in November only honored his mother for her Freedom Rider activism during the black civil rights movement in the Sixties.

While Hillary Clinton hates doing Sunday shows – as we remember from the weekend after Benghazi – she did allow her close friend Gov. Terry McAuliffe to appear on Meet the Press on April 19. Jaws dropped when NBC host Chuck Todd threw him a real Russert-like hardball, quoting from his 2007 memoir What A Party!

"This is Hillary Clinton," said Todd. "This is you quoting her in your book. ‘They had bankrupted us totally. We owned nothing. We didn't own a car. We didn't own a house. Here we were, 50 years old and we owned nothing. No-thing! All the money we had, which we had brought into the White House, was gone. I hadn't made any money for eight years, so it was really horrible.'"

Radical activists in the gay community have put pedal to the metal to force Gay Acceptance on Christians -- making not only their position but their tactics anti-Christian. They are deliberately targeting the Christian wedding industry – the cake-makers, the caterers, and the quaint bed-and-breakfast owners, and the like. They are head-hunting Christians who will refuse their business on moral grounds so as to slap them with lawsuits or “human rights” complaints.

In the media, Hillary's Twitter launch on April 12 was received with words like "sleek," "savvy," "trending," "electrifying," and "approachable."  She was packaged by the press exactly as she wanted it: a humble “champion of everyday Americans.”

Compare that to the Ted Cruz launch on March 23. These words framed the introduction: "scary," "dangerous," "slimy," "firebrand," "rigid," "uncompromising," "hardline," "extremist," "flamethrower."

Conservatives know what to expect when the networks create shows about lawyers. From L.A. Law to Ally McBeal, we’ve observed countless crusading liberal protagonists confront and defeat conniving corporate executives and other corrupt establishment villains.

This seemed to describe The Good Wife on CBS over the last five years. But something interesting has happened over the last few weeks. Producers have introduced a wealthy conservative character named Reese Dipple, who engages seasoned liberal lawyer Diane Lockhart on the hot-button social issues of the day.

The Old Media loathes the New Media as unreliable, and have no right to pass judgment. Increasingly they are prone to leap into news stories based on their own liberal networks of social media. Look no further than the new Indiana religious freedom law. They could not get enough of those angry tweets from Hillary Clinton and public-policy geniuses like Miley Cyrus.

Based on Twitter, they touted a "growing outrage" from coast to coast and obsessed over Indiana's "bigotry" for days. Conservative social media also reacted to the Hoosier contretemps forcefully in the opposite direction, but apparently it's too much to expect "objective" journalists to notice too much of that.

Comedy Central hosted another one of its vicious and disgusting celebrity “roasts” with Justin Bieber as the target. On the “pre-show” before the roast, unfunny comedian Jeffrey Ross arrived in a pope costume, accompanied by sexy “nuns” in black habits and fishnet stockings.

Red-carpet host Sarah Tiana introduced him as the “popemaster general” and gushed “you look amazing, you're going to be hilarious." To which Ross replied, "Bless you, Sarah, congratulations on all of your abortions."

Imagine an eighth grader, presented with a portrayal of Sen. Edward Kennedy, the late patriarch of the “royal family” of American politics. The student would learn nothing but legends about “the greatest Senator of all time,” as Sen. Ed Markey proclaimed.

On the occasion of the opening of an “Edward M. Kennedy Institute” in Boston, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley oozed, "Another New England superstar was honored today. Politics was his game, and we'll have his story next.” There was not one discouraging word...not even the word “liberal,” applied to arguably the single most left-wing senator of all time.

The latest "TED Talk" on the Interet featured the "inspired thinker" Monica Lewinsky. She should be doing something different -- in the lingo of that time, move on. But she keeps returning to the scene of her obscene behavior, and now insists we feel her pain, that she is the “Patient Zero” of “slut shaming.”

Lewinsky wishes to reinvent herself as an evangelist and a guru, but how to do it? Call it shame-shaming.

It's as if they were waiting, breathlessly. The moment Ted Cruz announced his presidential campaign, the national media proclaimed their horror. He was “brash,” a “hardliner,” an “uncompromising conservative,” they warned. ABC anchor David Muir announced his agenda was the usual No list: “Promising no abortion, no gay marriage, no gun control, no IRS.”

Apparently there's no room for hope and change -- if you're a conservative.

Sound the trumpets. The New York Times announced on March 18 that it is bringing in 20 new online-focused writers as contributors for its op-ed and Sunday Review sections. In an interview, Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal claimed “We were looking for a broad range of viewpoints and subjects and backgrounds and geographical locations and every kind of form of diversity that you can think of.”

Lower the trumpets. Bring in the fact-checker. It seems the viewpoint-diverse Times can’t seem to locate a conservative acceptable to executives prowling the halls in the snooty Times offices in midtown Manhattan.

On March 10, eight days after The New York Times began the scandal over her private e-mail server, Hillary Clinton assembled the press at the United Nations in New York to offer a typically legalistic and crabby press conference lasting only 21 minutes. The first-blush reaction from the pundits? That wasn’t good enough. She can’t expect the story to go away just from that mess.

But within 48 hours, that’s exactly what began to happen, with the networks suddenly finding other shiny news objects to explore. So here’s the question that needs to be asked: with the networks dumping investigators Lisa Myers and Michael Isikoff and Sharyl Attkisson, is there anyone on broadcast television interested in an investigation of Hillary’s decidedly opaque e-mail practices?

TV and movie producers rarely focus on Catholic priests in their plots, let alone use them as central characters, as in The Father Dowling Mysteries or Father Murphy in the 1980s. Maybe that’s a good thing, because when Catholic priests are part of the plot these days, there is an unmistakable odor of aggression -- mocking, vilifying, and disparaging not just Catholic priests, but the priesthood itself.

TV producers insist their stories “reflect reality, claiming even they’re “ripped from the headlines.” Well, there are other religious traditions that collide with human frailty. Rabbis, imams, and even Episcopalian bishops can commit sin and not fear Hollywood "ripped from the headlines" shows.

The media have developed a predictable and equally annoying habit every presidential election cycle. We hear the Republicans are going to be crushed by pandering too much to conservatives. The Democrats are firmly moderate and need a push from the left so they don’t forget their “compassion.”

So it was with Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter 35 years ago. So will it be in 2016, no matter who is nominated

Kudos to our colleague Elizabeth Harrington at the Washington Free Beacon. She offers a familiar old slice of sleaze funded by the federal government. An “investigative theatre” company in New York called “The Civilians” has been granted almost $950,000 by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and believe it or not, the National Science Foundation. Its latest creation is a musical about porn titled Pretty Filthy.

Andrew Lack has been named to replace Patricia Fili-Krushel in charge of NBC News and MSNBC. Under the direction of Pat Fili-Krushel, NBC News has taken a nosedive into irrelevance with one journalistic scandal after another. Will bringing back Andrew Lack help restore some semblance of honesty and integrity to NBC News? It’s too early to tell but the task ahead is daunting.

On Inauguration Day, 2009, the White House website declared President Obama’s administration would become “the most open and transparent in history.” By the end of the next day, Obama had issued high-profile orders pledging “a new era” and “an unprecedented level of openness” across the massive federal bureaucracy.

This has become a cosmic joke.

The media noticed that this year’s Oscars ceremony contained a lot of political tub-thumping, but they didn't notice that these speeches were predictable and obnoxious left-wing screeds.

They were just “passionate pleas for equality,” according to the Associated Press. Actress Patricia Arquette unleashed a tirade on wage inequality for women. Singer John Legend said more black men were trapped in prison than America had black men trapped in slavery in 1850. There’s apparently no difference between Kunta Kinte and Willie Horton.

Some might insist Barack Obama is a lame duck, but our national media elite still think of him as a very graceful swan. When this man comes under criticism, journalists are incapable of any sense of objectivity, balance, or fairness. The accuser must be forced to withdraw the criticism, or be punished.

First, Rudy Giuliani said at an event for Gov. Scott Walker that the president doesn’t love America like previous presidents did. That might be a little unfair. Jimmy Carter also loved to get up in front of a podium and lecture about all of America’s flaws.
