Spoiler Alert: Captain America has a “flaw.” It may be hard to believe with his impeccable morals, charming personality and his, well, perfectly formed biceps, but yes, Cap has a fatal flaw - he’s not gay.

Most women will celebrate that. But not Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson, because in Marvel’s latest installment, Captain America: Civil War, Disney squashed any possibility of a romance between Steve Rogers and his longtime pal, Bucky. And she has bone to pick with Disney about that.

In a column that showcases the leftist belief that the ends justify the means, the Charlotte Observer and its parent company McClatchy have expressed nothing short of support for the economic boycotts of North Carolina in light of Republicans remaining defiant after Governor Pat McCrory signed a bathroom bill to ensure that people use the bathroom according to the gender they were born with.

Ever since the first Muslim Miss USA, former darling of the major news networks converted to Christianity last month, the liberal media cannot care less about her.

Rima Fakih made waves in 2010 when she was crowned Miss America -- the first Muslim to win. At the time CBS, NBC, and ABC all expressed their delight over the pageant results.

On Sunday's This Week show on ABC, during a panel discussion of Paul Ryan's reluctance to endorse GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, The Nation editor Katrina Vanden Heuvel was the latest liberal in the dominant media to repeat the discredited claim that former President Ronald Reagan began his 1980 presidential campaign at the site of a racist murder in Philadelphia, Mississippi. More surprisingly, no one on the panel pushed back against her, even though there were three participants with right-leaning histories present.

At the top of NBC’s Today on Tuesday, co-host Savannah Guthrie proclaimed that Hillary Clinton was “not taking the bait” after Donald Trump “once again brings up her husband's past infidelities.” In the report that followed, correspondent Andrea Mitchell spun hard for the Democratic candidate: “Donald Trump surprising many observers in both political parties by launching deeply personal attacks on both Hillary and Bill Clinton. The opening round of what is likely to be a vicious campaign.”

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may argue that he’s a conservative, but his latest appointee comes from the ranks of former Soros employees. While that move might be a sticking point on the right, ABC, CBS and NBC have censored all information about Trump’s appointee.

On Monday’s edition of PBS’s Charlie Rose show the host invited on former Obama speechwriters David Litt, Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett to wax fondly about Obama’s “great” communication skills when it came to delivering both serious speeches and funny lines. When Lovett, now a writer in Hollywood, told Rose he was most proud of the “serious speeches” on the economy and health care, Favreau jokingly jabbed that Lovett was responsible for the now infamous lie about keeping your health insurance plan. Rose and the entire panel cracked up at the line.

All three networks on Tuesday morning censored the bombshell news that all the e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s top IT staffer, the man who set up her private server, are missing. This is despite a combined eight hours of air time on ABC’s Good Morning America, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning. Instead of covering this important development, these same programs devoted eight minutes and 38 seconds to a new anti-aging cream. Not exactly the most pressing story.

In honor of Mother’s Day this year, three magazines promoted the story of how one son “gifted” his mother with death. And no, it wasn’t a joke.

Esquire first published the story, followed by Redbook and Cosmopolitan (all conveniently owned by Hearst Magazines). All three outlets gave the story, written by Alex Schlempp (with Patrick Pacheco), the same headline: “On Mother's Day, My Mom Asked Me to Help End Her Life.” Schlempp detailed his journey to find a way for his mother to commit assisted suicide, and justified his actions by calling it “mercy,” “the right thing” and the “best gift.”

Donald Trump’s rise as a presidential candidate has prompted many political observers to blame TV outlets for giving him historic amounts of free air time. While it’s true the media have overwhelmingly focused on Trump in their coverage during the current election cycle, there is another media phenomenon at play. NBC has spent more than a decade building his brand as a successful businessman of almost mythic proportion.

The network’s coverage of Trump was overwhelmingly and consistently positive. MRC Business found only 15 stories (out of 335) on Trump’s business failures, and 320 stories promoting him as a businessman, his businesses and his shows. The vast majority of stories were about the network’s show The Apprentice, which featured Trump.

Jorge Ramos’ weekly Al Punto program on Univision gives the nation’s leading Latino journalist-turned-activist a weekly platform for turning practically every topic to Trump. In fact, in four out of the five segments of the latest edition of the hour-long Sunday public affairs show, Ramos led guest after guest into a volley of broadsides against the GOP’s presumptive 2016 presidential nominee.

One question that many Americans wonder is whether people helping Donald Trump dominate the presidential campaign have been given favors by the billionaire. On Monday night, Buzzfeed posted a story headlined “Trump Gave $150,000 To Charity That CNN Head's Wife Helped Lead.” Of course, the subhead below it underlines that the charity is an elite private school attended by Trump’s son Baron.

“Look at anything Trump’s done. It plays into hatred,” actor Jeff Daniels charged on Monday’s With All Due Respect, before sneering: “The hat should say, ‘Make America White Again.’” As for the far-left socialist Sanders, Daniels trumpeted how “I love Bernie. I love the ideas he’s got,” citing his “ideals, let’s just make the world a great place” with “free health care and free college.” Alas, standing in the way is the fact “that thing called ‘Congress’ is a problem.”

On Monday, all of the network evening newscasts could not wait to join in on US Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s beat down of North Carolina. Only the tornado outbreak in Oklahoma could keep them from jumping in immediately. “In her view, this is the new Jim Crow,” reporter Steve Osunsami said on ABC's World News Tonight of Lynch’s reasoning for taking the state to court. On NBC Nightly News, Pete Williams echoed Osunsami conjuring the specter of southern segregation of public spaces like fountains and bathrooms.

TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee was chock-full of it’s signature cringeworthy ‘political humor’ May 9. It began with the feminist host slamming Cruz for his abortion stance before letting singer Michelle Branch takeover in a mocking parody of the former presidential candidate.
