The New York Times' coverage of the international climate change summit in Paris remained on an aggressive boil, as Coral Davenport and Gardiner Harris' report from France Tuesday, "Citing Urgency, World Leaders Converge on France for Climate Meeting," hit the same set of alarmist notes Davenport did in her previous story from Paris. And Justin Gillis, the paper's most alarmist environmental reporter, accused libertarians and conservatives of bad faith, taking funding from Big Oil, and "cherry-picking" data under the headline "Why do people question climate change? -- Hint: ideology."

The national news media is "lock-step" in with the "radical" Left and its "crazy agenda," when it mindlessly parrots talking points comparing the threat of climate change with that of radical Islamist terrorism Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell told Fox News's Neil Cavuto today on the latter's eponymous Your World program.

Interviewing Ben Carson for the first time on NBC’s Today on Tuesday, co-host Matt Lauer condescended to the Republican presidential candidate while citing the latest polling: “In the last four to six weeks you have gone from number one in Iowa to number three, and your decline seems to coincide with some very troubling world events....Is it a coincidence that your numbers are going down as Americans are coming to terms with moments like that?”

Gary Tuchman's report on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 made it clear that the CNN program was in the tank for abortionists and their political allies. The segment followed in the wake of Cooper's friendly interview of Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards and Randi Kaye's biased report on the Republican presidential candidates. Tuchman played up that to "the perpetual sadness of the employees" of a New Jersey abortion facility, "their building is a target." He also let the center's executive director and communications director smear all pro-lifers as potential terrorists.

Barbara Hollingsworth of our sister site CNSNews.com has a nice summation from today’s Summit of Conservative Communicators in Washington, DC sponsored by MRC Latino.

New on November 30: Some in the media mocked Tim Tebow over the break up with his Miss Universe girlfriend, Olivia Culpo, over his abstinence until marriage stance. “Apparently an NFL job isn’t the only thing Tim Tebow can’t hold onto.”

While promoting his new movie, Chi-raq, about gun violence in Chicago, during the 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday’s NBC Today, director Spike Lee claimed: “...it's easier for an African-American, a black person, to be President of the United States than to be president of a Hollywood studio or TV network cable.”

On Monday's AC360, CNN's Randi Kaye played up how the hidden camera videos from the Center for Medical Progress triggered "anger-filled rhetoric" from the Republican presidential candidates in the months before the Colorado shootings. Kaye touted that CMP's David Daleiden "told CNN that...he did get creative with the video — admitting that it was edited — a critical detail that seemed to be lost on all the GOP candidates." This, of course, ignores the hours of footage that does show Planned Parenthood officials "bargaining, negotiating, pricing, and arranging the sales of body parts," according to her network's own reporting.

The Bible says, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” and that appears to be the standard by which one man lived, who gave his life Friday protecting those he disagreed with on abortion. But you won’t hear that story from the media because the pro-life “Good Samaritan" doesn’t fit their agenda.
Amanda Marcotte: ‘Terrorism’ the ‘Logical End Point’ of Conservative ‘Deep Sense of Entitlement’ to Women’s BodiesBy Tom Johnson | December 1, 2015 | 12:56 PM EST
Anyone fascinated by strident pro-choice rhetoric finds that Marcotte seldom disappoints in that regard. In a Monday Salon piece pegged to the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shootings, the lefty pundit asserted that “terrorism…is the logical end point of [the pro-life movement’s] deep sense of entitlement over others’ bodies,” and that the movement “has been built on a lie: That it is about ‘life,’ when it’s clearly a movement of religious prudes who want to sneer at women they think are sluts.”
Marcotte added that “a movement built on a lie is bound to be one that’s wicked and dishonest in all its tactics, and that is what we see with the anti-choice movement. People who are willing to lie to get their way are not going to apologize and grow a conscience just because some people get killed for their lies…This shooting should be a reminder that the pro-choice side is the moral one, and not just because you never have to worry about some pro-choicer shooting up a crowd under the delusion of religious righteousness.”

After a gunman entered a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs on Black Friday, wounding nine people and killing another three, journalists were quick to blame conservatives, Fox News and the pro-life movement for the violent tragedy.
The knee-jerk reaction for more gun control was implicitly there, but the media went even further this time, demanding the censorship of pro-life speech. Why should they stop at challenging one amendment?
Here are the worst examples of journalists blaming pro-lifers for the violence that ensued last week:

If the media have as much control over consumers’ actions as Larry Wilmore believes, he should be more careful on his own show.
During Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Monday, the host blamed Fox News’ “Kool-Aid” for motivating the Colorado Planned Parenthood gunman.

Climate skeptics don’t exist, according to actor, activist and socialist sympathizer Sean Penn.
They’re just cult followers of Fox news programming.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and guests on Monday worried that working at Planned Parenthood is becoming “dangerous” due to pro-life “terrorism.” Talking to fellow liberal Joy Reid, the Last Word anchor announced, “...We've come to the point where working at a Planned Parenthood in America is a dangerous occupation.” (Some might point out that Planned Parenthood has always been dangerous for the unborn baby.)

In an interview with Hillary Clinton aired on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose wondered why the Democratic frontrunner was running: “Why do you want to be president? I mean, you’ve had a remarkable life....You’ve been in the White House. There it is over there....Is it about history?...Is it about the first woman?”
