The media missed the story. And its the same story - whether the topic is Donald Trump or the Brexit vote that now has the United Kingdom on the way out of the European Union. For that matter, this story popped up earlier in, of all places, Wisconsin, when Governor Scott Walker took on public employee unions and defeated them in a furious fight that even had him running in - and winning - a recall election forced by his opponents.

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).

After weeks of indecision, ABC decided on May 12 it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom The Real O'Neals, loosely based on the childhood of vehement gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then Noah Galvin, a 22-year-old gay actor playing the fictional version of Savage, gave an interview to New York magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC was reconsidering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for Season 2.

An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," said a source to The Hollywood Reporter. One show source added: "He caused a grade-A s--t show. ABC screamed at him all afternoon."

The Washington Post is already working on crafting Obama’s presidential legacy story once he leaves office next January – and it isn’t just any legacy they are attributing to him – it’s an “unusual” legacy. Why?  Well, The Post certainly couldn’t use Obama Care which was shoved down the throats of Americans and far exceeded projected costs.  They couldn’t use the issue of Immigration that Obama so passionately ran on during his campaign – especially after it was just smacked down by the Supreme Court earlier this week.  No – Obama’s “unusual” legacy was being “a good dad,” something that had nothing to do with his presidency.

Osama bin Laden routinely referred to his main Western enemies as “crusaders.” Conservative-bashing author Neal Gabler, the longtime Fox News Watch panelist, adapted OBL’s analogy in a Thursday Salon piece that originally ran at BillMoyers.com. Gabler also griped that if most Americans don’t understand just how fanatical Republicans are, blame the media.

“For three decades,” Gabler commented, “the MSM have been collaborators with the GOP, pretending” that it’s “a normal party,” when it’s really “closer to a religious cult…It operates on dogma, sees compromise as a moral failing, [and] views enemies as pagans who must be vanquished…That isn’t politics; it’s a modern version of the medieval Crusades, and as the ancient Crusades did to Europe, it has inflicted untold damage on our country.”

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."

Immigration is the issue where the New York Times' liberal slant is most obvious, and Friday's edition did not fail to provide it. The Supreme Court effectively doomed President Obama’s executive actions in 2014 to unilaterally shield some five million illegal immigrants from deportation, and the New York Times' front-page “news analysis," “Lines Drawn for November,” immediately pounced on what it considers a golden political opportunity for Democrats in November.

Washington Post reporter Robert Barnes reported Friday that a deadlocked Supreme Court handed Obama a huge defeat: “President Obama suffered the biggest legal defeat of his administration Thursday when a deadlocked Supreme Court failed to revive his stalled plan to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation and give them the right to work legally in the United States.”

But this was the large headline: “Plan to shield illegal aliens suffers loss.”

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. However, CNN's Brianna Keilar asked 10 questions in just six minutes along the lines that the protest did not last long enough.

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.

According to a YouGov survey, 75 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds voted for the UK to remain in the EU. Only 39 percent of those 65 and over voted to remain.  Therefore, the young were, in the words of the Huffington Post headline, “screwed by older generations.”

Who needs a crisis when you can invent one? BBC fanned Brexit fears this morning when it falsely reported that, according to “sources within Morgan Stanley,” the giant bank would be shipping 2,000 jobs to the EU in response to yesterday’s UK vote to leave the EU. Bloomberg Business Journalists Twitter list could boast that at least 12 of its journalists helped to spread this inaccurate BBC story on Twitter before BBC was corrected by CNBC’s more serious journalism.

NPR's Asma Khalid made it clear in a series of posts on Twitter during the evening/early morning after the Brexit vote that she opposed the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. Khalid initially expressed her shock after the British television network ITV projected that there was an 80 percent probability that 'Leave' would win. She later spotlighted a British Muslim's Tweet that contended that "potentially I live in a country with many closet racists." She also labeled the pro-Brexit result "an isolationist move with global ripples."

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.”

The shocked reaction of Oxford University students to the Brexit vote yesterday was notable for the fact that they were so firmly esconced in their liberal bubble that even Vox took note of their extreme divorce from reality. As we shall see, it never even occurred to them that (gasp) the vote would be to leave Brexit. In fact the Oxford students clueless reactions to the vote were so laughable that the [Max Cady laugh] in the brackets will be employed where necessary to set the proper tone. To refresh your memories, Max Cady was a character in the movie Cape Fear.  So just click the link in the brackets whenever you see it to hear his distinctive laugh as portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the remake.
