Following a press conference in which President Obama stubbornly refused to admit any failures in his strategy to fight ISIS, reporters on NBC and ABC were stunned by the commander-in-chief’s dismissive attitude toward the legitimate tough questioning he received.

There is no denying the horrors of the terrorist attacks on Paris, and even some liberals and their media pals are beginning to chafe at the left’s refusal to call radical Islam by its name. So maybe we’ve reached a tipping point, and will henceforth be allowed to speak frankly about who the enemy is. Unless of course the terror victims are Israeli.  

Israel faces acts of terror rooted in radical Islam daily – including insidious knife attack campaign currently going on in Israel’s streets. In the three months leading up to the ISIS’s deadly Paris attacks, the ABC CBS and NBC evening news programs have mentioned terror attacks on Israelis 30 times. Twenty-five of those stories describe the perpetrators as Palestinian. But not one made any mention of the words “Islam” or “Muslim” in reference to the attacks.

In a recap of the November 14 Democratic presidential debate, Sunday’s Nightly News avoided awkward moments, such as the candidates refusing to use the term “radical Islam” or Bernie Sanders doubling down on climate change being the greatest national security threat.

Was a teen runner disqualified for wearing a Bible verse? That’s the question Fox News commentator Todd Starnes is putting into the national spotlight.

On Nov. 7, West Forsyth High School runner John Green finished in 3rd place in the Georgia 5-A cross-country state championship. Immediately afterwards however, he was disqualified for wearing a white headband with a Bible verse on it. The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS skipped the story during their morning and evening news shows – although they have covered controversy over religious head attire before.

Silence spoke powerfully today on Morning Joe. After a clip rolled of a listless President Obama speaking about the Paris attacks, Joe Scarborough asked Mika Brzezinski what amounted to a rhetorical question: "does he look like he is engaged and understands the level of threat?"

When after a few seconds Mika failed to reply, Scarborough tried rephrasing the question, but still elicited no response. Her silence was so telling, so excruciating, that Mike Barnicle--ever the good sycophant--broke in to slavishly assert "I think he looks fully engaged."

Having shown her affinity for the nonsensical when it comes to the oil export ban, Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift has now demonstrated her refusal to accept the reality of three major economic booms in the United States over the last century that were preceded by major tax relief.

Appearing as one of the regular panelists on this weekend's McLaughlin Group, Clift made a claim that was laughable even by the elastic standards of the left.

Monday’s Morning Joe began with an evaluation of the actions of the White House prior to and after the attack on Paris Friday night. Joe Scarborough began by demanding to know if the roundtable thought the President actually looked involved and engaged in understanding “the level of threat.” When Mike Barnicle tried to claim the President “looks fully engaged,” Scarborough felt it necessary to confront him on it.

In the wake of the terrorist slaughter in Paris, one might expect coverage of the Obama administration’s announcement that five more detainees would be released from Guantanamo Bay. Yet, NBC’s Today show, despite a four hour run-time, ignored the story. The New York Times, which often is used by the networks to select story topics, covered the release.

In the latest iteration of “Caitlyn” Jenner discrimination, the Los Angeles Times reports Jenner asked for tickets to the Democratic debate in Des Moines on Saturday night, but was denied by the president of CBS News himself.

The husband of a 9/11 hero is returning his late wife’s “Woman of the Year” award from Glamour magazine after Caitlyn Jenner was given the same award, Nov. 9.

NYPD Officer James Smith’s wife Moira (who had also been a NYPD officer) was honored in 2001 with one of Glamour’s “Woman of the Year” awards for her heroism in saving “hundreds” from the World Trade Center as it collapsed September 11, 2001.  Smith was the only female NYPD officer to die that day.

In an interview with former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie was incredulous of his criticism of President Obama’s strategy against ISIS: “You wrote in The Washington Post that the President should wage war to defeat ISIS, quote, ‘not merely to harass it.’ That is pretty tough language. Let me be direct with you, are you saying the President is dabbling at war with ISIS?”

On Monday, the panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe repeatedly mocked the three Democratic presidential candidates over their refusal to use the term “radical Islam” following last Friday’s terrorist attack in Paris. After playing a clip from Saturday night’s Democratic presidential debate, co-host Joe Scarborough appeared shocked at their answers and proclaimed “How stupid do they think we are?"

Can prominent liberal journalists ever get their brain around the idea that conservatives are sincere and not cynical when they protest liberal media bias? Ben Carson has repeatedly made the point that his memoirs are being nitpicked at a much higher rate than Hillary Clinton's or Barack Obama's. But New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet suggested to Charlie Rose on PBS he doesn't really "believe" that. Carson's being "disingenous," pandering to right-wingers.

Gary Legum of wrote the “antiabortionists” are upset with “perky newswoman” Katie Couric at Yahoo! because “she has dared to take her cameras inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, which looks like a fairly normal medical center and not the blood-soaked abattoir of dismembered baby limbs that conservatives just know it to be in their tiny blackened hearts.”
