Add what follows to the long list of items we should be reading about in wire service reports but instead must find in the editorial sections of the nation's two leading business newspapers.

An Islamist organization tied to the Muslim Brotherhood is involved in the screening potential Syrian refugees allegedly receive before being allowed to come to the United States. Investor's Business Daily revealed this information, which is in stark contrast what U.S. government officials are telling the nation, in a Tuesday evening editorial (bolds are mine):

"According to the Globe, Barack and Michelle Obama’s marriage is on the rocks:  Friends say Michelle tries to talk to him about their problems, but the president offers no solutions.  Only empty rhetoric." – Jodi Miller, NewsBusted.

According to Politico, NBC News President Deborah Turness had another public relations snafu fall into her lap this week, but this one was self-inflicted as she told a group of Hispanic lawmakers (i.e. Democrats) that illegal immigrants were “illegals” and later flopped in trying to speak in Spanish to show them that she’s committed to diversity at NBC.

If you had watched last night's episode of South Park then you are probably aware of how it brilliantly mocked PC culture. In addition to it's hilarious mocking of PC, it also took on another topic, Saturday's Democrat presidential candidates debate. If you missed that debate, you can be forgiven because the DNC very intentionally wanted as few people to watch it as possible. However, thanks to a South Park scene of that debate many more people will become aware of it, including a topic that Hillary Clinton would prefer you not dwell upon. 

Although she came out in favor during the debate of admitting up to 65,000 Syrian refugees into this country, that position was taken to attract liberal Democrat primary voters. For the general election she would rather not spotlight this view which is already turning out to be electoral poison. Unfortunately for her, that was the debate topic South Park focused on. A trigger warning strong language alert for viewing the following scene:

Never interrupt a liberal when he’s being superior in public – especially not if you’re going to bring your sky god into it. That is the takeaway from a recent article on (where else?) Salon.  

In light of the terror attacks in France, #PrayForParis was one of the many ways people on social media responded to the events to show their support. Seems perfectly fine right? Not to Salon. You see, all the shock and horror caused by Paris shouldn’t be soiled by anything so tacky as prayer.

CNN correspondent Elise Labott bemoaned that the House of Representatives voted to "to intensify security screenings of Syrian refugees and suspend Obama's program to admit 10,000 of them in the next year," as Reuters reported on Thursday. In a Thursday post on Twitter, Labott linked to her network's reporting on the 289 to 137 vote, and added her own over-the-top commentary: "House passes bill that could limit Syrian refugees. Statue of Liberty bows head in anguish".

On Tuesday, The Atlantic featured an article that lamented decades of Republican race-baiting in presidential campaigns. The piece by [authors] allow that race-baiting “does not mean that those who employ them are racists,” but it does “show a willingness to exploit societal ills for political gain.” The authors don’t think Republicans are racists, just that Republicans have a tendency to exploit racist attitudes across America.

What do you get when you give C-list celebrities a chance to fawn over their God-like president in front of a camera? You get an embarrassing mess fit for GQ’s Man of the Year recipient, Barrack Obama.

In case you missed it, President Obama was named Man of the Year by GQ and got a big picture on the magazine’s cover. In an effort to push that last bit of air into the man’s already Jupiter-size ego, GQ put together a little video for him. “GQ has assembled an important group of celebrities including Judd Apatow, Stephen Curry, Future, Tracy Morgan, Amy Schumer, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and the cast of Hamilton to thank President Obama for his years of service to the country.”

On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times and liberal analyst Rula Jebreal bewailed the latest poll that found that 53 percent are opposed to letting in 10,000 Syrian refugees. Kristof hyped that "this almost exactly matches up a poll in January 1939 of whether or not to admit 10,000 mostly Jewish children into the retrospect, we clearly acknowledge that was a shameful period in American history." Jebreal slammed this majority as "racist," and cried, "They're weaponizing fear! That poll reflects fear."

The women's fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar is one of several periodicals rushing to re-purpose interviews by HBO star Lena Dunham with her feminist favorites. They just posted Dunham's interview with the radical heroine Gloria Steinem, who's plugging her new book, complete with a dedication to her abortionist in the 1950s as a "hero." That's the word both Dunham and Steinem employed.

Just in time for the upcoming holiday, National Geographic will premiere a two-part television movie about the very first Thanksgiving in 1621 between the Pilgrims and Native Americans. The series creators have marketed this special, Saints and Strangers, as a realistic, historically-accurate version of the trials and tribulations the Pilgrims faced during their Mayflower voyage and after their landing.

Good Morning America reporter Jon Karl on Thursday marveled that Republicans would dare “defy” Barack Obama on letting Syrian refugees into the country. ABC censored the news that only 28 percent of Americans support the current refugee program. Instead, Karl announced, “The House is expected to defy the President today by voting to temporarily prevent the administration from allowing more Syrian refugees to come into the country.”

On Wednesday night’s Daily Show, host Trevor Noah gushed over veteran liberal ABC reporter Ted Koppel, proclaiming that there isn’t “anybody in the news who can arguably say they have had a more accomplished career than you have had.”

Several times in the past, we've heard President Barack Obama, and occasionally his press secretary, tell America that the nation's commander-in-chief learned about certain events the same way many of the rest of us did: by seeing them on TV or reading newspaper accounts. A Republican or conservative president hauling out this excuse even once would face endless outrage and ridicule, respectively, from the news and entertainment divisions of the establishment press's networks.

Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who is now an independent investigative journalist, has revealed one reason why Obama's level of claimed ignorance has been so high. It's because he won't look at information he doesn't like, or which doesn't conform to his preconceived notions — even in very serious matters relating to national security. It seems highly unlikely that Attkisson is the only reporter in the nation who has learned this.
