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.

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.

Monday’s lead New York Times story by the paper’s Andes bureau chief Nicholas Casey was a grim report on the ongoing societal collapse of Venezuela: “Pillaging by Venezuelans Reveals Depth of Hunger.” But in typical media fashion, Casey managed to avoid the S-word -- socialism -- for almost all his report, and in an interview for NPR's Fresh Air actually blamed “consumerism” for the country’s woes, while labeling the late socialist dictator Hugo Chavez as "very much a democrat in a lot of ways."

The Senate voted on four gun-control proposals Monday evening, two from Democrats and two from Republicans, but all of them failed to pass. Even though the result was predicted in advance, all of the networks were disgruntled by the outcome. “The problem is that Democrats and Republicans have two different solutions to the problem, and their half-hearted attempts at compromise have simply gone nowhere,” moaned Nancy Cordes on CBS Evening News.

Beware liberal media propagandists trying to sell you a liberal as “just regular people....folding the kids’ laundry...who had never done anything political before.” Baloney. On Friday’s Morning Edition, NPR was the latest outlet who presented this fakery for one Shannon Watts, who founded the group One Million Moms for Gun Control after the Sandy Hook mass murder in December of 2012.
But Watts gave $1750 to Obama for President that year, $500 to the DNC in 2011, and $1,000 to the pro-abortion feminist Democrats at EMILY's List in 2010.

During Monday’s edition of CBS’ Evening News the network threw their weight behind a lawsuit against Remington, which is trying to find the gun-manufacturer liable for the shooting in Newtown Connecticut. “Congress shielded gun-makers from most lawsuits except when a gun is sold negligently to someone who is a high risk,” stated anchor Scott Pelley, “Well, the parents argue that the AR-15 assault rifle is so inherently dangerous that selling it to anyone is negligent.”
