Giving his thoughts about Tuesday’s Republican presidential debate on Wednesday’s AC360, former Bill Clinton administration staffer Paul Begala offered a strange comparison and unintentional irony when he declared that the GOP candidates are merely “creepy” “junior high schoolboys” who are playing the role of Hillary Clinton’s stalkers.

In CBS’ “Buen Arbol” episode of Code Black, a Hispanic mom in America illegally seeks medical help for her young son. Lucky for her, she’s in the sanctuary city of Los Angeles and this hospital won’t alert law enforcement.

When Officer Barbrady accidentally shoots an unarmed 6-year-old Latino boy, the town of South Park rises up to get rid of the police, in the episode "Naughty Ninjas." (“We've only had a Whole Foods for a month, and already, we don't need cops. So cool.”)

Art imitated life on Wednesday night’s edition of Modern Family. On an episode called “The More You Ignore Me,” Luke (Nolan Gould) explained the finer points of how one can get out of an arrest.

On Wednesday night, NBC Nightly News neglected to inform its viewers of a new report concerning the scandal-ridden Department of Veterans Affairs and the $142 million it paid out in bonuses to employees (including some who were facing discipline and/or recently fired). Compiled by the House Veterans Affairs Committee, the report stated that some of those who received bonuses still got them despite the fact that “several of them were under investigation or accused of mismanagement.”

Just as a reality check, I asked a friend today what his reaction would be if I said with a sincere-sounding voice that he makes me want to strangle him. He said, "Almost sounds like a threat." I said, "No, it was supposed to be a joke." He said, "No it's not."

I also asked another person what her reaction would be if I earnestly called her "demented." She said, "You'd be insulting me." I asked, "What if I said I was just joking?" Response: "I'd say, 'The heck you were.'" In the past ten days, members of the press have decided that threatening language and an insult, both directed at GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, were only "jokes." There is virtually no chance that these same people would give the same treatment to threats and insults directed at Democrats and leftists.

The Wednesday editions of ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News each provided their own wrap-ups of the Fox Business Network Republican presidential debate from the night before, but the theme was predictably similar as both networks spun the event as illustrating “fierce opposition” and “dramatic divisions” within the GOP on apparently every issue.

It used to seem like weathermen/weatherwomen were the only ones who could be wrong half the time and still keep their jobs.  Well, I'm now beginning to think that same rationale applies to the reporters at Politico - specifically, Kyle D. Cheney.

Cheney is the Politico reporter who started a media meltdown over a story he filed last week on  Republican presidential frontrunner Ben Carson.

According to Chris Matthews, it's uncertain whether the term Hispanic can properly be used to describe GOP presidential aspirants Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Marco Rubio (Florida). It's better to say they are "Cuban nationals," offered the Hardball host on his Nov. 11 program.

Filling in for Scott Pelley on Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, Charlie Rose provided a wrap-up of Tuesday’s Fox Business Networks Republican presidential debate and seemed exasperated when he wondered to Face the Nation anchor John Dickerson “why” did the GOP candidates level “a lot of attacks on Hillary Clinton.”

In an ESPN article written by Senior Writer Elizabeth Merrill, she lauds the bravery of Jonathan Butler, the head of the Concerned Students 1950 organization at Missouri, and the student who went on a hunger strike to get former University System President Tim Wolfe ousted.

You know you've made it when you're "parodied" on Saturday Night Live, Sen. Claire McCaskill, Democrat of Missouri, exclaimed to Rachel Maddow when appearing on Maddow's MSNBC show on Monday.

Which might be true had SNL actually parodied Maddow. What they served up instead was a pallid impersonation at best when there was so much more to work with.

Carol Costello was true to her liberal form on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom during a segment with Rick Tyler, Senator Ted Cruz's campaign spokesman. Costello asserted that "Ben Carson didn't exactly give riveting answers" during the latest GOP presidential debate, and asked, "Why did no one challenge him on that?" She also wondered, "Is it too politically dangerous to attack Ben Carson, or to even challenge him on things that he says that don't make sense?"

Conservatives revere the Bill of Rights, including the 2nd Amendment, and highly respect those who have worn the uniform of this nation. So naturally MSNBC found Veterans Day a perfect opportunity to troll by giving a pro-gun control Army veteran a platform to insist "It’s time for vets to speak up about gun safety."

Robin Williams’s first album was called Reality…What a Concept. More than one lefty blogger implied that Unreality…What a Concept would have been a fitting title for Tuesday night’s Republican presidential debate.
