On Wednesday night’s Last Word, MSNBC’s Alex Wagner introduced the broadcast by complaining that despite President Obama “riding the political wave of political success” “the Democratic Party just got a brutal reality check” in the 2015 elections. The MSNBC host and liberal Washington Post columnist EJ Dionne repeatedly tried to downplay the bad night for Democrats and chalked it up to low voter turnout among key Democratic demographic groups rather than a rejection of the party's liberal policies.

Abortion belongs in entertainment, according to one Washington Post writer.
In her Nov. 2 story, Washington Post opinion writer Alyssa Rosenberg called on television shows to “treat” abortion as a “routine medical procedure.” She celebrated three shows for presenting a “glimmer of refreshing honesty” with abortion: CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, CW’s Jane the Virgin and FXX’s You’re the Worst.

Tuesday night, Houston voters rejected a bill propped up by the city’s lesbian mayor Annise Parker that would allow transgender men and women into the public bathroom of their choice.
This came after voters in Springfield, MO revoked a similar ordinance passed by the city’s council a few months prior. But the backlash doesn’t stop there. In Fairfax County, VA, Hillsboro, MO and Chicago, IL, parents and students have angrily protested against similar “non-discrimination” rules in their schools, in just this year alone.
In other words, most Americans reject the notion that biological men have the right to enter women’s locker rooms and bathrooms. Shocker.

It was like a mother trying to lead her naughty son through an apology . . .
Last week, Joe Scarborough predicted he would "get in trouble" for calling John Harwood's biased performance as debate moderator "embarrassing." On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski tried, in what seemed perhaps to be a pre-arranged mea culpa, to force Joe to say "I really respect everyone I work with." Joe didn't play along with the script but did ultimately mutter "of course I do" before quickly moving on.

On Sunday night, NPR’s weekend All Things Considered anchor Michel Martin had a long eight-minute interview with pro-basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who’s recently best known for popping off with radical leftist opinions for Time magazine’s website.
Martin went looking for the legend to trash another legend, Michael Jordan, for failing to get behind the black Democrat challenging conservative Sen. Jesse Helms in 1990, who Martin announced had “very retrograde” attitudes on race:

The day after voters in Houston, Texas defeated a measure dubbed by many to be “the bathroom bill” aimed at “protecting” gay and transgender people from discrimination, Wednesday’s CBS Evening News lit into those who overwhelmingly opposed the measure by touting fears of Houston businesses being boycotted and even the 2017 Super Bowl being moved out of the city due to this measure’s failure to pass.

In “A High Hope for a Low Heaven,” Fox’s Empire focuses on marketing both Jamal Lyons (Jussie Smollett) and an up-and-coming rapper named J. Poppa. It’s all about the Benjamins, you see, and there’s money to be made from both the LGBT crowd and the religious folks, too.

The writers of Law and Order: SVU are dragging the Duggar family back into the headlines - and defaming Christians to boot.

After heavily promoting on Tuesday the Ohio ballot initiative to legalize marijuana before the polls closed, NBC Nightly News offered an about-face of sorts on Wednesday and refused to acknowledge the fact that measure was soundly defeated. Hailing it as “high stakes” in the Buckeye State, anchor Lester Holt hyped in a tease on Tuesday’s newscast: “Legalized pot on the ballot tonight in the biggest swing state of all. Is it a tipping point for the nation? A big money fight with a famous singer caught in the middle.”

The 49th Annual Country Music Association Awards just wrapped up and while hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood said their goal was to not be political, they still managed to get in some cultural references and shots at the likes of Bruce Jenner, Donald Trump, Josh Duggar, Hillary Clinton, and Dr. Ben Carson.
LGBT Activists Demand the NFL Cancel the Super Bowl in Houston After Defeat of Transgender Bathroom Ordinance, the NFL Says NoBy Dylan Gwinn | November 4, 2015 | 10:57 PM EST
The best efforts of the LGBT community to loose an army of would-be perverts and rapists upon unsuspecting and defenseless women in Houston public restrooms went down in glorious defeat Tuesday night. Yet because overreach is the only known method for dealing with failure that the radical left appears to understand, they decided to double-down on their misfortune and petitioned the NFL to punish Houston by taking away the Super Bowl in 2017.

With his continued rise in the 2016 Republican presidential polls, the liberal media has circled back to attacking Marco Rubio over his personal finances with the latest attack pieces coming on Wednesday’s editions of the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News as both minimized the fact that Rubio was exonerated by a Florida ethics commission back in 2012.

The Denver Post, in an actual op-ed and not just in one paragraph surrounded by 13 other paragraphs condemning the team but in an actual opinion statement, has seen fit to defend the Redskins in their trademark case. Of course, they also take a shot at the Skins. But hey, we’ll take what we can get.

Former Saturday Night Live cast member, Nora Dunn, is very upset over the fact that Donald Trump is hosting that show this Saturday. So upset to the point of incoherence. She tries to make the case against Trump but pretty much all she can come up with is she doesn't like him. While explaining her dislike of Trump, Dunn wanders off into semi-coherent psychobabble which makes one wonder if there was a shrink sitting beside her couch taking notes as she wanders slightly in and mostly out of topic for paragraph after paragraph. Of course, during her extended ramble not one word of objection to the recent appearance of Hillary Clinton on SNL.
So here is Nora Dunn at the Huffington Post taking a long, long time to explain why Trump shouldn't host SNL because she plain doesn't like his politics:
