In June, New York Daily News writer Gersh Kuntzman entertained us by claiming that he got a "temporary case of PTSD" after firing an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Kuntzman, in his haste to capitalize on the Orlando, Florida massacre of 49 which had occurred the day before to make some kind of gun-control point, failed to note that terrorist Omar Mateen didn’t use an AR-15 to carry out his attack.

But then again, Kuntzman, despite being a journalist, has a unique outlook on the importance of details. He has very little interest in them. For example, after Monday's stabbing spree at The Ohio State University, Kuntzman ranted on Twitter that the world doesn't really need to know that the deceased attacker, who has been identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, was a Somali refugee.

The liberal media threw a proverbial hissy fit Monday in response to President-Elect Donald Trump’s dubious claim that millions of votes were cast illegally. While seeming pretend that Trump would be the first president ever to tell a lie, public-radio Bob Garfield went on a long winded tirade, on MSNBC’s All In, railing against the “Right wing media.” “The people who get it and we at the mainstream media, you know, get the straight dope but about half the electorate is getting their information from other sources, none credible,” he whined.

The radical-left site The Intercept is ripping into The Washington Post for touting a report from a shadowy, supposedly “nonpartisan” group that asserts that Wikileaks, the Drudge Report, and other alternative media operations are easy foils for Russian propaganda.

Glenn Greenwald and Ben Norton's article was headlined "Washington Post Disgracefully Promotes a McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group." They ably pointed out just how the supposed enemies of “fake news” at the Post are promoting bizarre conspiracy theories using overwrought numbers from a source that won’t identify its own authors or funders.

The Monday night after ABC reported Fidel Castro’s death live from Havana, Cuba, World News Tonight paid little mind to the Cuban exiles in Miami, Florida celebrating the death of the tyrant. Instead Anchor David Muir rambled on as he hyped his flight home from Havana to Miami. “Our journey back beginning at the Havana airport where we learned we would be boarding the first commercial flight from Havana to Miami in decades,” Muir said as he we visibly excited to receive his inaugural certificate.

Conservatives need to get over their fixation with Ronald Reagan, liberals often announce. Maybe so, but conservatives might be more willing if liberals would stop gratuitously maligning an immensely popular and consequential leader with their pernicious, self-serving mythology. Don't hold your breath for this -- Reagan occupies a spot between Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, though still well below Joseph McCarthy's perennial top ranking, on the Official List of Liberals' Most Loathed Republicans.

Despite the facts eventually showing on Monday morning that the Somali-born Ohio State University (OSU) student who mauled fellow Buckeyes with his car and a butcher’s knife, Yahoo! News breaking news reporter Caitlin Dickson felt it was worthwhile to still flaunt the issue of control and how the early reports that the assailant had a gun “spur[red]” a “look” at Ohio’s gun laws.

Larry Wilmore, the conservative-bashing ex-Comedy Central host, has signed a deal with ABC studios, the Hollywood Reporter explained on Monday. Wilmore’s Nightly Show as cancelled in August due to very low ratings. In the article, Wilmore gushed, “I'm excited beyond words to be back at ABC and look forward to this creative partnership. Disney took a chance on me as a young writer years ago and so I'm thrilled to return to the Mouse House.”

During Sunday morning's edition of the Cable News Network's Inside Politics program, host John King read part of President Barack Obama's statement on the death of Fidel Castro before asking why the Democratic occupant of the White House did not mention the brutalities the 90-year-old dictator inflicted on his fellow Cubans for six decades.

Guest panelist Ed O'Keefe of the Washington Post responded by calling the lack of that information “stunning” and slamming Obama's remarks as “an incredible dismissal of reality” and “a real missed opportunity” for the president to identify with the Cuban people.

The latest breaking news in US foreign relations concerning the end of Cuba’s Castro era was debated among Cuban-Americans on the cast of Monday’s Morning Joe. The MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski invited three Cuban-Americans: FOX News contributor and author Humberto Fontova along with GOP strategist Alex Castellanos to discuss former CNN host Soledad O’Brien’s defense of President Obama’s controversial comments about Castro’s “complicated” legacy. Evidently, the death of the Communist dictator who played a central role in sparking the Cuban Missile Crisis at the height of the Cold War, remains subject to ideological interpretation within the mainstream media.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson warned President-elect Donald Trump against reversing President Obama’s executive order opening diplomatic relations with Cuba. The liberal pundit argued that putting pressure on the authoritarian regime would be “the one thing that could keep Fidel Castro, metaphorically, and his revolution alive and his system of oppression alive...”

Communist dictator Fidel Castro executed hundreds and exiled thousands over the course of his reign. But that’s not what celebrities and the liberal media are remembering the Cuban dictator for, following his death on November 25. Actor Danny Glover, a frequent guest to Castro’s Cuba, tweeted, “Fidel Castro was a great revolutionary. Learn more about his life & legacy.” In the tweet, he linked to an article detailing a roundtable discussion on the “Cuban revolutionary leader.”

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Monday blasted liberals who have fawned over Fidel Castro. Appearing on Fox Business in the wake of the dictator’s death, Bozell explained, “Fidel Castro has been a darling of the far-left since 1958. It goes back decade after decade after decade where the radical-left has just been infatuated by him and Che Guevara.”

On Monday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough unloaded on the media, calling out specific journalists and newspapers as “hypocrites” for harping on Trump to accept the results of the election before it happened, but now, giving Hillary Clinton a pass for joining in a recount effort led by the Green Party. Holding up newspapers like the New York Times, Scarborough shouted, “This why, by the way, you’re all going out of business!”

Here’s something you definitely don’t hear often – if at all – a TV host and celebrity taking a stand against Planned Parenthood and calling it for what it is, “real genocide” against black Americans.
 
Nick Cannon, host of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, was recently interviewed by The Breakfast Club (a radio show simulcast by the cable TV channel Revolt)  when he made those comments.

A verbal brawl erupted on Monday’s The View. After liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar defended Barack Obama’s bland statement on Fidel Castro's death, token conservative Jedediah Bila slammed it as “nauseating.” Goldberg even hinted that the United States in 2016 could go the way of Cuba in limited freedom of the press.
