So, Curt Schilling is holding nothing back. Just over a week after he was fired by ESPN for being a conservative, and deigning to observe that male bathrooms were built for people with male parts, while female bathrooms were built for people with female parts, Schilling told the Breitbart News Patriot Forum that ESPN is home to “some of the biggest racists in sports commentating.”

2012’s “War on Women” line of attack by the Democrats and the media appears to be back in full-swing, even before the party has elected its nominee. After Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of using the “woman card,” Clinton shot back, championing her pro-abortion, feminist politics. Instead of talking about more important breaking news, the networks, cable news, and late-night talk shows focused on the feud, defending Clinton. The Daily Show, April 27, was no different, with host Trevor Noah applauding Hillary’s “cute” reaction to “crushing” her GOP opponent’s “sexist” statement.

Admittedly, I’m torn as to whether what happened on Wednesday night’s edition of Blackish constitutes actual bias or just a really bizarre commentary on the self-perception of African-Americans in society.

On Fox News shortly after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's foreign policy speech today, former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton evaluated what the GOP frontrunner had to say about Iran's efforts to develop nuclear weapons.

He also stated the inconvenient truth about the Obama administration's nuclear "deal" with Iran, namely that it puts the jihad-driven, terrorist-funding, death-to-America nation "on a highway to nuclear weapons" — a reality that the Barack Obama-defending press simply won't admit, at least partially because elements of the press, particularly alleged "journalists" at the Associated Press, helped clear the route for that highway:

HULU's new original series The Path has thus far little to write about in regards to crossing conservative boundaries. For the most part they've depicted the members of the fictional religious cult of “Meyerism” as a group of believable, well-intentioned pseudo-Scientologists with real flaws. So even though the topic is ripe for jabs at religion, the show has been uncharacteristically sympathetic to people searching for answers... Until this week.

On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, during a discussion of Donald Trump accusing Hillary Clinton of playing the "gender card," host Brooke Baldwin declared that the comment reminded her of Mitt Romney using the words "binders full of women" which she asserted "really hurt him" in the 2012 presidential campaign.

CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson went on to complain, "We often think of women as only having gender. Men have a gender, too," and, after accusing Trump of playing a "gender card" by acting like an "alpha male," she concluded that "men certainly benefit from the gender card, too, and in some ways benefit more because it's more subtle in some ways for men."

As far-left MSNBC hosts go--an admittedly low bar--I'll admit to having found Chris Hayes a relatively fair and decent proponent of his misguided policies. But he did two things tonight that made me lose respect for him. First, he literally laughed in the face of Rick Tyler and called him "preposterous," when Cruz advocate Tyler called Donald Trump a "northeastern liberal progressive."  This despite Trump's record of donating to . . . northeastern liberal progressives and describing himself, among other things, as "very pro-choice." Would Hayes ever be so rude to a liberal guest? 

Even worse when it comes to hypocritical double-standards, it is hard to top Hayes' skeptical suggestion about Denny Hastert's pattern of sexual abuse of boys: "good Lord Almighty do I wonder whether that just stopped when he left the high school?" Come back and reclaim your integrity, Chris, when you wonder the same about post-White House Bill Clinton. Did his abuse stop when he left "the precincts" of the White House? Orgy Island, anyone?

Between Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech and Senator Ted Cruz announcing Carly Fiorina as his running mate Wednesday was a crazy day in American politics. Even so, ABC and NBC spent precious time during their evening news programs defending Hillary Clinton from Trump’s comments about her playing the “woman card.” “You don't have to be a Hillary Clinton supporter to think there's a sexist undertone to what he's saying,” said The Washington Post’s Ruth Marcus on NBC’s Nightly News.

Last week, a long Vox essay by Emmett Rensin asserted that “contempt” for supposedly “stupid” blue-collar whites -- in response to the exodus of those voters from the Democratic party -- has become pervasive among liberals. The piece has gotten some pushback from lefty writers, including Slate’s Jamelle Bouie, who thinks that Rensin greatly overestimates the spread and influence of what Rensin called the “smug style in American liberalism.”

“The driving reason working-class whites abandoned the Democratic Party is race,” commented Bouie in a Friday piece. “The New Deal coalition Rensin describes was devoured by its own contradictions, chiefly, the racism needed to secure white allegiance even as the party tried to appeal to blacks…Pressed by those blacks, Democrats tried to make good on their commitments, and when they did, whites bolted.”

Having missed Tuesday’s primary results coverage due to his wife Kathleen losing her Maryland congressional race, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews returned with a vengeance on Wednesday to accuse Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz of having “given up on his brain” in fighting Donald Trump and joked that Cruz is a bigamist for his many political “marriages.”

An April 17 Associated Press story reported that "Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media." AP writers Carole Feldman and Emily Swanson complained that "perceptions of inaccuracy and bias, fueled in part by Americans' skepticism about what they read on social media."

In a later paragraph, they confessed that "The poll shows that accuracy clearly is the most important component of trust." This is where the AP and the establishment press contantly fails their readers, listeners and viewers. As seen after the jump, an unbylined Wednesday morning AP report quite obviously and deliberately waited four paragraphs to reveal who did the pepper-spaying at a council meeting in Anaheim, California where the subject was Donald Trump.

Comedian Will Ferrell is probably best known as one of the founders of the Emmy-winning comedy video website Funny or Die and a person who has often portrayed former Republican President George W. Bush in a number of comedy sketches on NBC's Saturday Night Live television series.

However, according to an article posted on the Variety website on Wednesday, the liberal comedian has now set his sights on another former commander-in-chief when he stars in an upcoming film entitled Reagan.

Late Wednesday afternoon, GOP presidential nominee Ted Cruz announced former presidential candidate and Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his potential running mate. Even before Fiorina came on stage, liberal journalists and pro-abortion groups logged onto social media to mock the pair’s appearance, policies and lack of “experience in office.”
