MSNBC's Chris Matthews is enjoying beating the dead horse that is Marco Rubio's repetitive answers on Saturday night's debate. But in doing so, Matthews himself is continually trotting out the same talking points about "short-term memory loss" and sounding like a character from the 1982 movie Blade Runner.

While all three network morning shows touted Hillary Clinton’s campaign attacking Bernie Sanders supporters for “sexism,” only NBC’s Today mentioned prominent Clinton surrogate and “feminist icon” Gloria Steinem employing sexist language to attack young women supporting Sanders.

A testy Chris Christie reminded George Stephanopoulos of his political “operative” past on Monday, hitting the Good Morning America co-host for bringing up the New Jersey governor’s low poll ratings. The former aide to Bill Clinton quizzed, “You have invested so much time and money in New Hampshire, though...still in sixth place, if you can't win there, where can you win?”

Chris Matthews was on Morning Joe Monday to share his precious insight into the New Hampshire primary coming up on Tuesday. As part of his segment he was asked about how he would historically categorize Marco Rubio’s seemingly embarrassing debate performance the Saturday prior. “I put it with Blade Runner.” Matthews said.

During Super Bowl 50, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) wasn’t about to let biology get in the way of their propaganda.

While live-tweeting its reactions to Super Bowl commercials, NARAL threw science out the window to bemoan “humanizing” a fully-developed fetus.

Debate night started a bit rough for ABC. Ben Carson missed his cue, and was left awkwardly waiting in the wings. After his name was called, Trump chose to wait offstage next to Carson. Then, moderator David Muir’s announcement of John Kasich’s name was drowned out by applause, leaving only four candidates on stage when moderator Martha Raddatz announced “ladies and gentlemen, the Republican candidates.”

But, ironically enough, the edition of World News Tonight directly before the debate had hyped the preparation that went into that very portion of the night.

Note to NARAL: It’s bad when even the liberal media stop seeing eye-to-eye with you on abortion.

During their Monday broadcast morning news shows, ABC, CBS and NBC reviewed the Super Bowl 50 commercials from the night before. While a pro-choice group erupted over a Doritos “Ultrasound” ad that “humanized fetuses,” the networks heralded it as a “favorite” and online stories found it “hilarious.”

The politically correct, pearl-clutching, metrosexual hot-take machine went full supernova in the aftermath of Sunday’s Super Bowl game as Peyton Manning, deluged with the inevitable questions about whether or not he was going to retire after winning the game, responded with a to-do list that pretty much any normal, red-blooded American male would endorse.

When CBS News assigned Gayle King, a donor, supporter and friend of the Obama family, to interview the President and his wife before the Super Bowl, the network guaranteed one of the softest interviews in the history of this administration. Asking not one serious question on Sunday, the journalist instead highlighted her favorite photo of the President and his wife. King also brought up dance moves, relationship issues and Super Bowl predictions.

Comedian Anthony Anderson mocked conservative actress Stacey Dash during his opening monologue at Friday's NAACP Image Awards: "What the hell is she doing? Doesn't she know that the Fox network is using her? She's just an Ann Coulter dipped in butterscotch. That's all she is!" Anderson added, "Baby, don't let them use you! Come back to the black people; and get back to work in some of those beautiful 'C' movies that you used to do."

Even by the ever-shifting rhetorical standards of pro-abortion liberals, this one is conspicuously tone deaf.

As soon as you saw that Doritos ad during last night's Super Bowl game, you knew it would lead to an unhinged response from abortion apologists. That it did, and then some.

Washington Post political reporter/pundit Chris Cillizza resolutely (and unpersuasively) denied last April that the media had a pro-Hillary bias. But he certainly exemplified it in his “Monday Fix” column in the newspaper. The topic was Hillary refusing to release transcripts of her six-figure speeches. He correctly noted that her “I’ll look into it” answer to Chuck Todd in Thursday night’s MSNBC debate is code for “not gonna happen.” 

But he clearly didn’t read his own newspaper before claiming that Hillary was far too savvy, and political, and politically savvy, to leave anything damaging in those speech transcripts beyond harmless "standard small talk" to donors:

Monday’s CBS This Morning applauded Beyonce using the “global stage” of the Super Bowl halftime show “to showcase the political message of her latest single” and hailed the singer’s new album making “a powerful statement on both racism and police brutality.”

For at least six years, Greenpeace has attacked Canada’s largest wood products company, Resolute Forest Products. But you wouldn’t know it by watching the U.S. broadcast news networks.

Bill Clinton has lost his fastball. That's an emerging theme from this campaign season, and it was on glaring display on today's Morning Joe.

Introducing a clip of Clinton [dressed like a lumberjack] attacking Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, Mika Brzezinski said the ex-prez had picked up the "hatchet"—not a good image for a would-be statesman. After the clip aired, Joe Scarborough called it "painful." Mike Barnicle said it was a "cringe" moment, with Chuck Todd seconding the assessment.
