Gayle King quickly corrected herself on Thursday's CBS This Morning, after revealing that "we were all laughing" at the strife within the Republican Party during the presidential primaries. The open Obama supporter pointed out that Bernie Sanders was "clearly very irritated that Democratic leaders would even suggest that he has something to do with the violence that may or may not occur," and wondered, "What is this doing to the Democratic Party? We were all laughing — not laughing, but saying the Republicans don't have it together; and now here, the Democrats seem to be a hot mess."

In the wake of Donald Trump suggesting Bill Clinton is a rapist, Yahoo is running an article by its chief national correspondent Lisa Belkin titled “When Trump made a pass at me. And why it matters.”

“Made a pass?” To many readers, that implies Trump implied a sexual interest. The actual tale is milder than that.

Three offensive elements pervaded the Associated Press's Monday coverage of Hillary Clinton's statement that she will put her husband "in charge of revitalizing the economy." The first was how AP reporters Lisa Lerer and Catherin Lucey decided to resurrect the infamous "2-for-1 offer" then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton campaigned on in 1992 — an especially weak move, given its real-world results during the first two years of his presidency. The second was the reporters' implicit assumption that political beliefs are infinitely fungible if the old ones are getting in the way of a leftist's march towards victory. Finally, the AP pair engaged in blatant historical revisionism in glorifying the economy of the 1990s.

Superheroes are so last year. In 2016, cannibalism is all the rage.

The Cannes film festival is where everyone who’s anyone in the film industry goes to show off their latest flick and fashion. This year, reporters noted that one on-screen theme seemed oddly prevalent: cannibalism.

After four seasons, ABC’s country music drama Nashville seems to have found only one coherent theme: country music fans are violent homophobes. On the flipside, “It’s Sure Gonna Hurt” was an apropos title for an episode that shamelessly pounded messaging instead of focusing on good storytelling.

Several years ago, The Washington Post decided it didn’t like the Redskins for the name of D.C.’s NFL franchise. A gaggle of sportswriters and columnists at the paper decided to be offended on behalf of American Indians, and set out to convince the Indians they should be offended too. Along the way they picked up support from others in the media, and Democratic lawmakers and a chunk of the federal bureaucracy. Everybody but, well, American Indians.

Miley Cyrus couldn’t be prouder to represent Planned Parenthood and abortion, according to the singer herself.

On Tuesday, late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon invited the 23-year-old celebrity on the Tonight Show as a guest.

When George Mason University announced plans to rename its law school after the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the outrage in liberal academia (to be redundant) was unconfined. The Times followed up Wednesday, with reporter Nicholas Fandos relaying the grim news that Scalia's name would stay. Right from the lead sentence, Fandos really made the libertarian-leaning university sound like the heavy in this story, deaf to the pathetic pleas of students and faculty.

You wouldn’t know it from watching the major English or Spanish-language television networks, but while campaigning in Puerto Rico this week the socialist candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders, announced that if elected he would pardon Oscar López-Rivera, a man convicted for constructing bombs and training others in how to build and use them during a Marxist-inspired terrorist campaign that sought independence for the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico during the 1970’s and early 1980’s.

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton believes we're supposed to be impressed by the idea of putting her husband Bill, in the Associated Press's words, "in charge of revitalizing the economy." Yep, the old "2-for-1" offer from the early 1990s is back.

In 1993, President Bill put First Lady Hill in charge of health care. Fortunately, nothing tangible resulted, but we did get an early lesson in the extremes of Clintonian secrecy and stonewalling. This time, a President Hill would put "First Dude" Bill — as the AP's Lisa Lerer and Catherine Lucey, brazenly stealing Sarah Palin's description of husband Todd while she was Alaska's Governor, prospectively described him on Monday — effectively in charge of the economy. Here's the big problem the press is virtually certain to ignore: Bill Clinton guaranteed in 2012 that the economy under a reelected Barack Obama would not need revitalization by now.

While most people would evaluate a Supreme Court pick by their history as a lawyer and/or judge, ABC and Telemundo evaluated Donald Trump’s SCOTUS picks by the color of their skin. “Donald Trump revealed the names of 11 judges that he’s considering to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court, if he makes it to the White House,” reported Telemundo’s Maria Celeste Wednesday evening, “What stands out is that no Hispanics were included.” ABC’s Tom Llamas expressed a similar concern during World News Tonight

In a rather surprising move, both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC’s Nightly News reported on Hillary and Bill Clinton’s astronomical speaking fees Wednesday. Unfortunately, both dedicated less than 20 seconds to the topic during each of their respective reports.  “A total of almost $1.5 million in just three months,” reported NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, a known Clinton fan.

Major conservative leaders convened at Facebook headquarters Wednesday to discuss the recent scandal of suppressing conservative trending topics. But you would never know it if you were watching ABC’s World News Tonight or NBC Nightly News. Kudos to CBS’s Evening News for not only mentioning the highly anticipated meeting, but giving it a full segment to boot! “Facebook held a summit of conservative leaders today to address allegations that the world’s leading social media website has a tendency to face left,” stated Anthony Mason kicking off their minutes long briefing.

Closing out Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews suggested that Hillary Clinton must pass “a test of leadership” to take the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination and become the next U.S. president that has nothing to do with any number of the scandals she’s involved in but simply whether she can corral Bernie Sanders supporters without capitulating to them.
