While promoting his new movie, Chi-raq, about gun violence in Chicago, during the 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday’s NBC Today, director Spike Lee claimed: “'s easier for an African-American, a black person, to be President of the United States than to be president of a Hollywood studio or TV network cable.”

On Monday's AC360, CNN's Randi Kaye played up how the hidden camera videos from the Center for Medical Progress triggered "anger-filled rhetoric" from the Republican presidential candidates in the months before the Colorado shootings. Kaye touted that CMP's David Daleiden "told CNN that...he did get creative with the video — admitting that it was edited — a critical detail that seemed to be lost on all the GOP candidates." This, of course, ignores the hours of footage that does show Planned Parenthood officials "bargaining, negotiating, pricing, and arranging the sales of body parts," according to her network's own reporting.

The Bible says, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” and that appears to be the standard by which one man lived, who gave his life Friday protecting those he disagreed with on abortion. But you won’t hear that story from the media because the pro-life “Good Samaritan" doesn’t fit their agenda.

Anyone fascinated by strident pro-choice rhetoric finds that Marcotte seldom disappoints in that regard. In a Monday Salon piece pegged to the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shootings, the lefty pundit asserted that “terrorism…is the logical end point of [the pro-life movement’s] deep sense of entitlement over others’ bodies,” and that the movement “has been built on a lie: That it is about ‘life,’ when it’s clearly a movement of religious prudes who want to sneer at women they think are sluts.”

Marcotte added that “a movement built on a lie is bound to be one that’s wicked and dishonest in all its tactics, and that is what we see with the anti-choice movement. People who are willing to lie to get their way are not going to apologize and grow a conscience just because some people get killed for their lies…This shooting should be a reminder that the pro-choice side is the moral one, and not just because you never have to worry about some pro-choicer shooting up a crowd under the delusion of religious righteousness.”

After a gunman entered a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs on Black Friday, wounding nine people and killing another three, journalists were quick to blame conservatives, Fox News and the pro-life movement for the violent tragedy.

The knee-jerk reaction for more gun control was implicitly there, but the media went even further this time, demanding the censorship of pro-life speech. Why should they stop at challenging one amendment?

Here are the worst examples of journalists blaming pro-lifers for the violence that ensued last week:

If the media have as much control over consumers’ actions as Larry Wilmore believes, he should be more careful on his own show.

During Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on Monday, the host blamed Fox News’ “Kool-Aid” for motivating the Colorado Planned Parenthood gunman.

Climate skeptics don’t exist, according to actor, activist and socialist sympathizer Sean Penn.

They’re just cult followers of Fox news programming.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell and guests on Monday worried that working at Planned Parenthood is becoming “dangerous” due to pro-life “terrorism.” Talking to fellow liberal Joy Reid, the Last Word anchor announced, “...We've come to the point where working at a Planned Parenthood in America is a dangerous occupation.” (Some might point out that Planned Parenthood has always been dangerous for the unborn baby.)

In an interview with Hillary Clinton aired on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose wondered why the Democratic frontrunner was running: “Why do you want to be president? I mean, you’ve had a remarkable life....You’ve been in the White House. There it is over there....Is it about history?...Is it about the first woman?”

Certain types of energy are certain targets for the 190 governments’ representatives gathering in Paris this week  and from green activists surrounding the melee.

The goal of the U.N. climate conference in Paris, known as COP21, is to get an international agreement on reducing carbon emissions, out of fear that climate change is a global threat. But the agenda of some developing nations to make rich nations like the U.S. pay them billions of dollars to fund a transition to “clean energy” reveals one reason clean energy goals aren’t realistic.

Here at NewsBusters, we usually reserve popcorn-popping for times when Democrats are scrapping among themselves. But in this strange political season, it looks like we could be in for some Orville Redenbacher moments among Republicans, too.

On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough mentioned having watched some of Megyn Kelly's Fox News show last night, and claimed that Kelly was "vicious" in going after Donald Trump. In the unkindest cut of all, Scarborough said Kelly "sounded like Rachel Maddow." View the video of Scarborough's statement, followed by clips from last night's Kelly File. You'll see that Megyn doesn't crack the slightest smile when Steve Hayes describes Trump as akin to "a dog with diarrhea." And a skeptical Kelly is all over Roger Stone when he attempts to defend Trump.

In a thorough takedown of the left and the liberal media over their double standard in selectively assigning blame after mass shootings, the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly dismantled on Monday night the arguments of abortion activists who have rushed to blame conservatives and the pro-life movement for supposedly causing the deadly shooting Friday at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado.

On Monday night, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News omitted from their coverage out of Chicago the arrest of an African-American teen for allegedly making threats on social media against white male students at the University of Chicago in retaliation for the shooting death of Laquan McDonald. Somewhat miraculously, ABC’s World News Tonight and correspondent Alex Perez did find time to allude to this arrest in its report.

If you think journalists' ignorance of American history and economic fundamentals is bad now, give it a few more years.

The University of North Carolina's School of Media and Journalism "has updated its curriculum requirements to give students more choice and flexibility in meeting the school’s graduation requirements. The change is in response to consistent feedback the school has received from students in its annual senior survey." You already know there's trouble if students who haven't been out in the real world yet are influencing the curriculum. Here's how much trouble:

As Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards appeared as a guest on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, host Cooper prodded her to "directly link the rhetoric" coming from GOP presidential candidates to the Colorado Spring shooting spree after she complained about "hateful rhetoric" being aimed at the abortion provider.

When she declined to make such a direct accusation, Cooper pressed her a second time, wondering if she believes "some of the language" has "led to violence."
