The journalists at Good Morning America on Friday hyperventilated about Ben Carson being “under fire” and investigated for possible lies about his childhood. On the same show, a segment on Hillary Clinton simply cheered her latest late night comedy appearance.

Michelle Ye Hee Lee, one of the Washington Post's "fact checkers," revealed in a Friday item that Marco Rubio's "explanation" on the November 4, 2015 edition of ABC's Good Morning America regarding his "handling of his state Republican Party-issued corporate card" actually checks out. Lee outlined facts related to the issue of the Republican presidential candidate's charges to the card between 2005 and 2009, and concluded that "based on the information released so far, a mountain's been made out of [a] molehill, by the media and Rubio's opponents."

As this writer documented in this space earlier on Friday, the interview of the day took place over on CNN during Friday’s New Day with tempers flaring between co-host Alisyn Camerota and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. In addition to Carson hitting back at the liberal Camerota over her previous history at Fox News, there were other examples of sparks flying as Camerota hounded him over his biography, whether the media actually vetted President Barack Obama when he ran for the Oval Office, and what the proper role of journalism should be.

Stoners plus dope fiend Snoop Dogg, carjackers, rappers, LGBT of all types including out-of-the closet actress Ellen Page, and the like all have a place to call home — Viceland. Claiming to be a new hip and edgy TV channel aimed to please millennials, Viceland boils down to an entire channel devoted to pushing the progressive, liberal agenda, 24 hours a day.
Viceland has been a project long in the making and up until its announcements this past Tuesday, Vice has had a somewhat limited presence in print, on MTV and more recently, HBO. It now has its hands on something more influential, a 24 hour cable channel that will be oozing with a weird, perverted form of “journalism.”

The Fox News programs The O'Reilly Factor and Fox & Friends featured video with MRCTV's Dan Joseph on Thursday night and Friday morning. Dan asked voters at Colorado University in Boulder whether they had heard of Kate Steinle or "Kate's Law" named on her behalf. They had not.
On July 1 of this year, Steinle was shot in the aorta and killed by an illegal alien who had been deported five times, but returned to San Francisco, a "sanctuary city" that protects illegal immigrants from deportation.
Ben Carson Fires Back at Verbal Assault from CNN’s Camerota: ‘Can’t Believe You Used to Work on Fox’By Curtis Houck | November 6, 2015 | 1:02 PM EST
In the middle of an extremely tense and combative interview on the Friday edition of CNN’s New Day, 2016 Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson shot back at co-host Alisyn Camerota for her questioning based off of a video from the far-left site Mother Jones and remarked to her that he couldn’t believe “you used to work on Fox and you’ve turned into this” liberal anchor.

Carly Fiorina on Friday debated the liberal co-hosts of The View, mocking them for attacks on her and also lobbying for honesty about the double standard conservative women face. At one point, the Republican lectured: “If all of you are honest, you will admit that this is the reality. Conservative women are held to a different standard than liberal women. That's just true.” When the liberal Joy Behar wondered, “by whom,” Fiorina retorted, “By all of you. By the liberal media.”

He’s Cristiano Ronaldo: the “world’s best soccer player” that almost wasn’t.
An upcoming documentary, Ronaldo, follows the 30-year-old Madrid soccer star, Cristiano Ronaldo. While Ronaldo is well-known around the world, the story of his beginning isn’t.

The liberal bias of Washington Post Style section writer Dan Zak emerged again at the top of Style on Wednesday. Less that two weeks ago, the Post’s Amber Phillips offered a more balanced and informative take on Sidney Blumenthal, Hillary’s controversial private adviser. Zak could only cite him as a man of “ruthless intelligence” who’s a magnet for “Benghazi inquisitors” and “Hillary nuts.”

Apparently the statute of limitation on when it’s okay for Hollywood to turn on its once celebrated and heralded fellow leftist travelers and call them terrorists is about four years.

Joe Scarborough's critique of Ben Carson goes way beyond policy differences. Scarborough questions whether Carson has the "character" to be president.
On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough twice suggested Carson was "quirky" and said his theory on the pyramids is "crazy." Scarborough suggestively asked whether Carson "has the temperament, whether he has the character to be President of the United States?"

ABC’s Scandal has been echoing the Clinton Era lately – an affair in the White House, impeachment proceedings, a First Lady turned Senator with Oval Office ambitions – and the episode “Even the Devil Deserves a Second Chance” was no different, with one character sounding an awfully lot like Hillary Clinton.

Add Arizona's Meritus Health Partners to the growing list of Affordable Care Act co-op failures. The Daily Signal reports that this makes 11 of 23 such state Obamacare co-ops which will have closed their doors by the end of 2015 after three or fewer years in operation.
The Associated Press, which, along with most of the rest of the establishment press, has been playing aggressive defense on behalf of Obamacare since its passage and especially since Barack Obama's reelection in 2012, has no coverage of Meritus's crackup at its main national or "Big Story" site. Beyond that, readers will see after the jump that the AP's local stories about Meritus highlighted its association with ACA/Obamacare when things appeared to be going well, and buried it when they went south.
