The Washington Post released a poll on Thursday, which showed that 90% of Native Americans do not take offense to the word, Redskins. The sports media responded to this poll by apologizing for decades of fear-mongering, race-baiting, and trying to make a national crisis out of something that is not even a crisis in the Indian community. Just kidding. They freaked out.

On Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360, an eight-member panel consisting of only one solid conservative, combined with several solid liberals, was mostly down on GOP presidential candidate's short list of possible Supreme Court picks. With socially liberal Republican Margaret Hoover, who referred to the picks as a "dog whistle to social conservatives," joining with other liberals to gripe about the list, Kayleigh McEnany was left as the only panel member to advocate for the choices.

At one point, a liberal panel member -- Hillary Clinton supporter Christine Quinn -- ridiculously interpreted McEnany as praising the justices for being "white" when the conservative analyst was merely praising them for being ideologically similar to conservative Antonin Scalia.

In an online column posted on Wednesday, Joy-Ann Reid from the liberal MSNBC cable television channel behaved as a Democratic Party apparatchik by calling for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to “level with your dreamers” that his opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has won the primary contest despite the fact that the socialist candidate made the contest “a hard-fought race.”

Reid, who is the anchor of AM Joy, which airs from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturdays and Sundays, began her article by stating that Sanders “must stop indulging his people’s fantasies, tell them the truth about the math -- and get them to stop with all the nasty about Clinton.”

Hillary Clinton has yet to put away challenger Bernie Sanders in her quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, and her supporters at the New York Times (and the rest of the media) are trying to shield her from Sanders’ “harm,” while pointing fingers at him for the alleged violence and death threats committed by his supporters after suspicions of process-rigging during the Nevada primary. Refreshing as it is to see the media actually putting blame on a liberal politician or a political movement for the acts of his followers, it's also true that slamming Sanders helps smooth Hillary's path to the nomination.

Almost anything that airs on the Kremlin-backed Russia Today makes for interesting fodder and Wednesday night was no different as former MSNBC host Ed Schultz lashed out at the “stupid” “mainstream media” for selling out to Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claim that Bernie Sanders supporters incited “violence” at a Nevada convention last weekend.

In a commencement address to the University of Mississippi last Saturday, NBC anchor Tom Brokaw lectured that “more guns” “will mean more homegrown acts of terror.” The veteran journalist, who worked for years with the unreliable Brian Williams, also dismissed websites that say “to heck with the truth.” On guns, Brokaw chided, “I'm appalled by the determination of organizations and individuals to arm more people without any appreciation of the consequence of ever more lethal weapons in our midst.” He added, “More guns and more firearm tolerance will mean more homegrown acts of terror.”

Everyone from Fred Astaire to Miley Cyrus is an offender when it comes to accidentally mocking other cultures, sometimes just by referencing them. “Cultural appropriation” is the newest sin against political correctness.

Outrage over culture caricatures spiked this year over everything from supermodels in Native American headdresses to sports team names. Movies and music were a popular battleground for the blame game.

On CNN Thursday afternoon, Chris Cuomo sat down with Hillary Clinton to discuss the recent conflicts in the Democratic party and what her strategy will be to defeat Trump, if she becomes the eventual nominee. Instead of asking hard-hitting questions that have been raised by Clinton’s critics, Cuomo followed the majority of the media’s example and asked Clinton sympathetic softball questions like, “Do you ever feel compelled to defend your honor [or] the honor of your husband?” and How does your mother “inspire” you to “get up” after being attacked?

The Huffington Post has uncovered a fact that thousands of Biblical scholars and theologians have missed: Jesus was the first transgender man.

To HuffPo writer Suzanne Dewitt Hall, “the current flap in conservative Christian circles about bathroom access is a bit baffling.” She claims that God created transgenders in Genesis, after all.

ABC’s The View crew are divorce’s biggest fan – except for one lone co-host.

On Wednesday, Whoopi Goldberg voiced her support of divorce, a topic she argued was “nowhere in the Bible” or in the Ten Commandments. On her own in this argument, co-host Sunny Hostin described marriage as an “unbreakable bond” (even if, as Joy Behar asked, her husband cheated on her with all the other View ladies). For her convictions, the others deemed her “crazy.”

In his first television appearance since the highly-anticipated meeting on Wednesday between Facebook and the nation’s top conservative leaders, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell told Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto Thursday afternoon that he “left encouraged” that the site wants to fix the “erosion of trust” set forth by allegations of censoring conservative news topics.

Our friends at Fusion want your young teens to stop by the Fashion Square Mall and pick up the latest in Hijab wear. It goes fabulous with the leopard skin Fendi handbag, I’m told. Fusion, the hyper-left sister-network of Univision, continues their attempt to make Islam cool by presenting us with their latest piece titled ‘America’s first Muslim clothing store says Islamic fashion isn’t just for Muslims.’ The author of the article, Alaa Basatneh, so far has written 16 articles for Fusion – every single one of them either directly or indirectly pushing an Islam-centered public relations agenda.

On Thursday’s NBC Today, correspondent Andrea Mitchell was so deep in the tank for Hillary Clinton that the veteran reporter claimed a major scoop from her own network about Bill Clinton being accused of rape was a “discredited” story. Mitchell was aghast that Donald Trump mentioned rape allegations against the former president during a Wednesday night interview: “...using that word unprompted during an interview last night...bringing up a discredited and long-denied accusation against former President Bill Clinton...”

It’s ironic when outspoken liberal women who moan about “women’s rights” come to the defense of men with multiple accusations of sexual crimes against women, even rape, simply because they’re Democrats. On Thursday’s The View, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar did just that, coming to the Clintons’ defense over Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accusations and, along with Sunny Hostin, dismissing Broaddrick’s “credibility.”

The journalists at ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning on Thursday offered groaning coverage of Donald Trump “rehashing” “old” rape allegations about Bill Clinton. Given the networks’s past hesitance in covering the claims against the Democrat, it’s clear these journalists probably didn’t enjoy highlighting them now. On CBS, Major Garrett reminded, “In an interview Wednesday, Donald Trump previewed a potential general election attack, rehashing accusations made against former President Bill Clinton.”  On Good Morning America, former Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos marveled, “Donald Trump launches his toughest attack yet on Bill Clinton calling out his history with women. Even bringing up rape.”
