Hours after this morning's massacre in Orlando, Florida, the Associated Press is already brandishing the gun-control agenda.

In a report with a time stamp of 9:16 a.m. Eastern Time, the AP, with its list apparently always at the ready, gave the following headline to its rundown of "some of the nation's deadliest rampages since 2012": "Florida nightclub attack just the latest US mass shooting." In other words, Dear Reader, while we're busy minimizing the larger significance of the massacre, we want to make sure you understand that events such as these will continue to occur as long as guns are available.

On Sunday, even after the FBI hinted the presence of a link to radical Islam, the panel on ABC’s This Week blamed the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida on heated election rhetoric and guns in America. “I think we all ought to pause with what happened in Orlando today,” stated ABC’s Matt Dowd when asked if third party candidates could gain supporters, “And if we understand that all of the hateful thoughts become hateful words become hateful actions.”

On page 2 of Sunday’s Washington Post came the headline “Hillary Clinton picks up another big endorsement.” Really? Who could that be? Jesse Jackson. And does it matter, this late in the contest?

By creating an "NBC OUT" initiative, NBC News is getting even bolder in just presenting one-sided LGBT propaganda from groups like the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). On Thursday, they posted an article from Variety headlined “Transgender Representation on TV Hitting New Highs.” But as usual, they found a terrible shortage of transgender characters on our television screens. 

Right by the NBC peacock came this definitive conclusion: "The hope is that those larger roles will transcend magazine covers and television screens, and weave acceptance into the fabric of our hearts and minds."

If there were a restaurant called Clinton Scandals, Kevin Drum has an idea of what the house specialty would be. “Whitewater was a nothingburger. Travelgate was a nothingburger. Troopergate was a nothingburger. Filegate was a nothingburger,” asserted Drum in a Wednesday post. “The Vince Foster murder conspiracy theories were a nothingburger. Monica Lewinsky was Bill's problem, not Hillary's. Benghazi was a tragedy, but entirely nonscandalous…Emailgate revealed some poor judgment, but we've now seen all the emails and it's pretty obviously a nothingburger.”

Pot, meet kettle: New York Times reporter Stephen Castle unwisely waded into a media bias debate in “’Brexit’ Vote Gives Tabloids Chance to Unleash Anti-European Tendencies.” It also gave the Times a chance to unleash its snooty anti-tabloid tendencies against right-leaning media outlets that support England leaving the European Union, while being blind to irony: "Britain’s freewheeling tabloid press has never been shy about pushing an agenda." As if that’s not precisely what the Times does every day of the year.

The latest from the New York Times is exactly the kind of media double standard that the American people have become sick of, doubtless one of many reasons Americans don't trust the liberal media. While I was waiting to go, I watched New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof being interviewed. (He was not in my segment.)  Here’s the headline and part of the story from the Mediaite account: "NY Times‘ Kristof: Yes, Donald Trump Is a Racist."

If someone in the movie business lost a job due to his or her skin color social media would rise up in anger. Venomous tweets. Righteous social media memes. And, if things really heat up, a hashtag campaign. The same holds true if a worker got passed over because of gender or religious beliefs. Who wouldn’t support that cause

The new movie Me Before You looks to be an inspirational love story. A lower-class woman in England is hired to take care of a young man who recently became a quadroplegic after being hit by a car.  He inspires her to live a fuller life; she inspires him to find the joys he can still realize from his wheelchair.

That’s the commercial, but that’s not the actual plot. Spoiler alert: this isn’t a love story, it’s a story of a man’s self-love leading to assisted suicide.

When asked about the role President Obama would be playing in the presidential election, he profoundly responded, “to remind the American people that this is a serious job. You know, this is not reality TV.” Of course Obama didn’t make it sound like a serious job considering he made these remarks on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, of all places.

TIME's Daniel D'Addario gushed "No president has ever been quite so omnipresent....the current President is very gifted at using the media both to entertain and to carry across his ideas."

When you hear Elizabeth Warren loudly ranting about Donald Trump do her screechings sound vaguely familiar? Perhaps you were sure you heard someone like that in the past but you can't quite put your finger on it. Well, a recent caller to the Laura Ingraham radio show, Mark from Virginia, finally lifted the veil on that maddening mystery when he revealed that Warren was an almost exact vocal twin of the Ruth Buzzi's bag lady character of many eons ago on the Laugh-In television comedy show.

Aha! Now it is clear to you. Of course. And if you doubt the very similar vocal patterns, listen to the clip of Laura Ingraham comparing Elizabeth Warren's rants with those of Ruth Buzzi. They are eerily similar in both voice and attitude.

Friday's NBC Nightly News played up that "V.P. speculation [was] swirling as Elizabeth Warren meets Hillary Clinton at her house." Lester Holt trumpeted Senator Warren as "a hero of the left," while Andrea Mitchell hyped that "the buzz about Warren [is] only growing." Mitchell later underlined that "the pros of picking Warren: she's a fiery speaker, who relishes attacking Trump....and [is] a progressive who could win back Bernie Sanders supporters."

According to New York Times writer Mark Leibovich, the combination of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren and others will make the Democrats the “party of grown-ups.” The journalist appeared on CBS This Morning and sneered, “I think one of the things the Democrats have going for them, especially in comparison to Trump, is they can be seen as the party of grown-ups.”

The media often cite the Natural Resources Defense Council when covering environmental issues, but one of the group’s founders appears opposed to going “green”’ when it’s near his own back yard. James Gustave “Gus” Speth recently expressed vehement opposition to a plan to build 20 self-sustaining, eco-friendly communities in Vermont. In 1970, he co-founded the NRDC, and is still listed as an honorary trustee member. Speth previously served as the dean of Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and is currently a professor of Vermont Law College.
