ABC was the last of the “big three” networks to break in Monday morning with the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down a pro-life Texas law, but they didn’t hold back their approval as the assembled cast of smiling correspondents hailed the “fairly sweeping decision” and expressed glee at the “party right here” by abortion activists “lining up since 4:00 am. to witness this moment.”

The Pope is at it again, this time issuing an apology to the LGBT community over the Catholic Church’s messaging over the nature of homosexuality and other LGBT related issues. During the segment discussing the Pope’s statement on CBS This Morning, co-hosts Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell, and Charlie Rose fawned and praised the Pope’s bending to the liberal tradition of raising up Christian figures who embrace the LGBT community, while attacking Christians who refuse to allow secular worldviews to bend their faith.

NBC journalists on Monday morning excitedly broke in with a special report to announce a “big win” for abortion as the “very controversial” Texas law had been struck down. Regarding the efforts by the state to require abortion clinics to meet certain standards, Pete Williams breathlessly alerted, “The state passed the law known as HB2 with a very controversial vote and the state said it was necessary to protect women's health.”

MRC president Brent Bozell passed along this beaut this morning with one word: "SKEWED." Check out the headline in The Hill newspaper: “Major companies decline to fund 2016 GOP convention.” On social media, the headline was “Major companies pull sponsorship of GOP convention.” But then it becomes plain it isn't really news at all: three of the five sponsors named aren't funding either party convention, and a fourth is sponsoring other events at both.

On Sunday’s ABC roundtable on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, MSNBC pundit and New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson argued with conservative panelists, CNN’s Alex Castellanos and FNC’s Greta Van Susteren over Brexit and how it paralleled with Trump’s appeals to “white racist supremacist nationalism.” By contrast, Dyson stated, Hillary Clinton appealed to America’s “best ideals” and her “greatness” was in “her continuity.”

The June 27 edition of Notable Quotables: ABC showcases a pro-amnesty protest slogan (“Don't Deport My Mom”) to frame their coverage of the Supreme Court's blocking of Obama's executive orders, while reporters exploit the ISIS massacre in Orlando to demand more federal gun control. “What will it take to move the needle when it comes to gun control?” CBS's Gayle King pleaded.

Plus: The New York Times blames hateful GOP rhetoric, not radical Islamic ideology, for the Orlando attack; a columnist says Trump's temporary ban on Muslims is akin to how Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin “killed millions of his own citizens,” and ex-CNN star Larry King says he’s “very independent,” but his voting record doesn't seem to support it.

The super hot Broadway show Hamilton has decided to enter the stage of politics by hosting a fundraiser on July 12 for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.  The fundraiser comes just two weeks before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

For the event, titled “Hamilton: An American Musical with special guest Hillary Rodham Clinton,” tickets will cost anywhere from $2,700 - $100,000.  Ummm…someone on the Clinton campaign should tell her that if she wants to look like she’s like the rest of us common folk, attending a Broadway show fundraiser in her name - where tickets are anywhere between $2,700 to $100,000 – probably isn’t the best way to relate to us commoners.

Herschel Walker has attempted, finished, and excelled at many things in his life. But he’s finding supporting a Republican candidate in America in 2016 to be particularly hard. How, specifically, is the NFL legend suffering for his public endorsement of Trump? Well, as Walker explained it to TMZ, a lot of people basically don’t want to invite him to speaking gigs anymore:

Just as you would expect, the 2016 BET Awards were full of Black Lives Matter references and reminders to register to vote and then get out the vote for Hillary Clinton. After the opening of the award ceremony featured Beyoncé and her back-up dancers marching into the auditorium to a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech, actor and producer Terence J went on to say, “Your vote is your voice,” and reminded everyone to register and “vote smart” as he introduced the show hosts, ABC’s Blackish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

They should have known better, but it was apparently too good to check. Following the lead of the apparently shellshocked BBC, the Associated Press on Friday night included an item in its "The Latest" timeline on Great Britain's Thursday vote to leave the European Union about how "So many users are signing a petition for a re-run of Britain's referendum on European Union membership that they've crashed the House of Commons website hosting the document."

Then, for good measure, the wire service devoted a separate stand-alone report on the petition's attainment of "more than 1.6 million names" as "a measure of the extraordinary divisiveness of Thursday's vote to leave the 28-nation bloc."

DAPAgeddon arrived last Thursday, in the form of the Supreme Court's ruling against the Obama Administration's executive amnesties, and news coverage was as awful as one would expect. The time has now come for our domestic Spanish-language media to reflect on its role in the toxic political environment surrounding immigration policy and the coverage it receives therein.

On Sunday, CBS's Face the Nation took a moment to note the latest embarrassing revelations in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as ABC's This Week and NBC's Meet the Press both ignored the finding. Even CBS buried the development at the end of its roundtable segment, as host John Dickerson hurriedly raised the issue: "Susan, we have just about 20 seconds left. There was news on the email front with Hillary Clinton. Didn't turn over an email that showed there were problems with her server. That's not good."

An example of how unhinged press bias builds on itself was on display Sunday morning on CNN's Inside Politics.

Associated Press reporter Lisa Lerer told other panel members who were criticizing Hillary Clinton for her lack of an in-person public statement on the the results of Thursday's Brexit referendum that they should doubt the legitimacy of the result. She did so by referring to "all the great anecdotal stories on the BBC and other outlets" which found a few voters, clearly surprised by the result given pre-election polling which predicted that Remain would win, who said, in Lerer's words, "Well it was a protest vote. I didn’t think we’d leave."

Penn State prof Sophia McClennen, a Bernie Sanders backer, really dislikes Hillary Clinton. “We are literally watching the Clinton campaign drain any claim to nuance, critical thinking, reasoned logic, and attention to facts from the Democratic party,” alleged McClennen in a recent screed for Salon. “The fact that Clinton is now the favorite of many on the right...should be evidence enough of a real merging of the right and the ‘left.’”

In other words, McClennen suggested, Hillary’s almost an honorary Republican, given that her campaign, much like the GOP’s campaigns starting with the 2002 midterms, has in many ways been “dominated by binary thinking, irrationality, and panic…The number one reason that Bernie Sanders supporters are told they should vote for Hillary is to stop Trump…If the primary argument to vote for Hillary is out of fear—then the Democrats have now joined with the GOP in promoting a politics of hysteria.”

Eddie Scarry at the Washington Examiner reports MSNBC weekend host Rev. Al Sharpton made some rude jokes about Fox News at a Kennedy Center “roast” for James Carville.

"It's better than Fox," Sharpton said of his MSNBC gig. "Because over there, they'd make me drink from a separate water fountain."
