Don Lemon boosted gun control on Monday's CNN Tonight during a panel discussion segment with Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, liberal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and conservative guest Richard Feldman. Lemon played up how the "the police commissioner of New York City said...that Congress was completely controlled...by the NRA," and asked Himes, "Do you agree with that?" Toobin also asserted that gun rights supporters "control the entire Republican Party at this point....And that's why we're not getting gun control."

Last week’s premiere of CBS’s new dramedy BrainDead certainly leaned left, but this week they were more evenhanded in their treatment of the right. Instead of the typical lefty caricature of conservatives, you get the sense they actually might have an understanding of real, sincerely-held conservative principles, which makes the Republicans’ dialogue in the show so much more realistic than anything we regularly see on TV.

Reports on ABC's World News Tonight on Monday and Good Morning America on Tuesday both downplayed the controversy, with correspondent Linzie Janis briefly remarking: "When asked his name, the gunman responds, 'My name is I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi of the Islamic State.' Authorities initially redacting that pledge, but later releasing it caving into criticism." There was no mention of Republicans calling out the administration nor any use of the word "controversy."

In an exclusive interview with Joe Biden on Monday for his PBS program, which was partially re-aired in the 8 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, host Charlie Rose actually questioned the Vice President on State Department officials rebelling against the Obama administration’s failed foreign policy in Syria: “So what did you think of those 51 diplomats in the State Department who said we need to be more aggressive?”

On Monday night’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee did her usual schtick of taking an issue from the extreme left and running with it. In this case, it was the NRA and “racist Republicans.” In her typical vulgar fashion, Bee called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for supporting the NRA after Orlando’s shooting. Calling McConnell a “puppet of the NRA” she slammed him and “Crazy Wayne” LaPierre, Vice President of the NRA.

The View’s Sunny Hostin on Tuesday waded into some dangerous territory as the show’s hosts discussed an attempted assassination of Donald Trump. After Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar condemned the attack, Hostin wondered if the “vile” Trump was partially to blame for a tone that leads to violence: “You are never supposed to violently try to take someone out because of their views. But with the Trump campaign and all that campaign rhetoric to incite violence— ”

Father’s Day is over for the year, so Disney channel can go back to doing what it loves: making Dad look like idiot #1. For their research study, a student at Brigham Young University sacrificed 8 hours of her time (that she will never get back) to watch two of Disney’s most popular shows. After suffering through Girl Meets World and Good Luck, Charlie, study author Savannah Keenan found that “every 3.24 minutes, a dad acts like a buffoon” on the TV screen.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t need a PR firm when it has the media who do just as well – if not better – at pushing the abortion giant’s agenda: death. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America bestowed Media Excellence Awards to 13 journalists during its 2016 National Conference Gala earlier this month in Washington, D.C. Since its founding, the taxpayer-funded organization has recognized a total of 270 media outlets and journalists for doing its bidding.

On Tuesday, PBS host Tavis Smiley appeared on Morning Joe to enlighten viewers with his presidential election analysis. What did we learn? Apparently progressivism is a gift that keeps on giving. According to Smiley, Bernie Sanders should take a page out of Jesse Jackson’s playbook, without Jesse Jackson there would have been no Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton is a much better candidate thanks to Bernie Sanders.

It’s two newspapers in one! The Washington Post ran a bizarre story about Trump and the media on the front page of the Style section on Tuesday. “Trump’s blacklist turns out to be a bit gray” was the headline. Trump’s campaign may deny press credentials, but reporters can easily just attend events and file stories, as Jenna Johnson for the Post is doing now.

But then the “blacklist is really gray” story ends with an overwrought quote from former Washington Post assistant managing editor Susan Glasser suggesting Trump was more “undemocratic” than Vladimir Putin in his press relations. “It is astonishing that something like this is happening in the United States.”

The media’s favorite radical Muslim-rights advocacy group just released a new report on what else? Islamophobia. The Council for American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”), which the media routinely ask to speak for the American Muslim community and has it’s own share of controversy, is now attacking many on the right for daring to associate terrorism with Islam. As many as 74 groups, individuals and media outlets were branded by CAIR as the “U.S. Islamophobia Network” in their 2015 report, released just yesterday.

Larry King apparently doesn’t want to face his biases. The veteran journalist appeared on CNBC, Tuesday, to insist that he’s “independent” and fair-minded. Yet, Squawk Box co-host Joe Kernan got King to admit he hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential candidate in almost 50 years. While discussing his likely support for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, Kernan quizzed, “Have you voted Republican in the past, Larry?”

Alexandros Orphanides’s June 19 anti-imperialist tirade on The Huffington Post has as much jargon as a chemistry textbook, but fewer defensible arguments than the National Inquirer. According to Orphanides, the immigration problem facing us today isn’t the influx of illegal immigrants into the U.S. in 2016, but the illegal immigrants that infested North America in 1607.
