In June, Comcast executive vice president David Cohen hosted a $2,700-a-plate fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. On the first weekend in October, the NBC Universal in-kind contributions really kicked in: a star turn on Saturday Night Live, a Sunday morning interview with Rev. Al Sharpton, and a Monday town-hall meeting on the Today program.

The Daily Beast was blunt in a headline: “Saturday Night Live Premiere Basically a Hillary Clinton Campaign Ad.” Writer Kevin Fallon documented how the aid and comfort for Mrs. Clinton wasn’t just in the skit where she played a bartender to the show’s Hillary impersonator.

In January, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was asked by a reporter if an unborn baby at 20 weeks is a human being. She shot back that when she was a new member of Congress, someone quipped, “Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows more about having babies than the pope.” She added, “Yeah. That would be true.”

That same smarter-than-the-pontiff feminist arrogance unfolded again on October 1, a few days after Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards testified to Congress regarding that group’s fetal body parts-for-profit scandal. Sam Dorman of our news outlet CNSNews.com asked Pelosi a very simple and pertinent question. “In reference to funding for Planned Parenthood: Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?”

As Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards prepared to testify to Congress about the filthy business she leads -- thanks in large part to an infusion of a half-billion dollars in federal funds every year – her marketing team tried to change the subject to everything else.

Right before the hearing, Planned Parenthood posted a video stuffed with feminist celebrities, including has-beens like Kathleen Turner, explaining why they stand with Planned Parenthood.

The difference between these news networks mentioning "heavily edited" videos and the Center for Medical Progress is that CMP is far more honest and transparent in disclosing the full footage and posting it online.  These "news" networks have a responsibility to do the same.

Today, I am calling on CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS to make public all the footage they collect for all of the news segments they produce, just as the Center for Medical Progress has done. Until they do, they have no right to question CMP's professionalism.

Washington Post political reporter Chris Cillizza is one of those self-impressed Watergate babies who thinks everything the media report brings great value to society. His latest article was titled "Trust in the media is at an all-time low. That's a terrible thing for all of us."

It is?

They call it “bacha bazi,” translated as “boy play” – Afghan militia men throwing boys into sexual slavery. What’s worse yet, the U.S. military has turned a blind eye to this obscene practice. The front page of The New York Times carried the headline  "U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies."

Soldiers who tried to stop this abuse act actually being punished by the U.S. military. A photo caption read: “Dan Quinn was relieved of his Special Forces command after a fight with a U.S.-backed militia leader who had a boy as a sex slave chained to his bed.” Quinn beat up the abuser.

The Obama years may be winding down, but our Obama-loving media never stops being hypersensitive about the man. CNN’s latest poll asked respondents “Do you happen to know what religion Barack Obama is?”and “Where was Barack Obama born, as far as you know?”

A major American media outlet asking these basic biographical questions after Obama’s been president for six and a half years seems to be asking “How inadequate are we?” But what they’re actually fishing for is a “crazy conservative fringe” argument now that Donald Trump is on top of the GOP presidential race.

Ellen Degeneres is a comedian as well as a daytime TV star, but she said this with a straight face in January: "I don't have an agenda. I'm not here to brainwash anyone….The only way I'm trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another….That is the message I'm sending out."

In reality, Democratic politicians have used her program to promote themselves and their agenda, like President Obama appearing to promote Obamacare. Ellen Degeneres booked a big star for her first week of the fall season, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and gushed all over her about how she was the only choice for president.

On September 11, The New York Times demonstrated once again the media’s peculiar sense of patriotism. The 9/11 attacks were not remembered at all on the front page. Instead, the top-right headline in capital letters read “DEMOCRATS HAND VICTORY TO OBAMA ON PACT WITH IRAN.”

The House of Representatives voted against it. The Senate voted against it. The American people are overwhelmingly against it. None of that mattered.

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.

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.
