In an interview aired on Friday’s NBC Today with Dr. William Petit – the sole survivor of a brutal home invasion in which his wife and two daughters were murdered – correspondent Cynthia McFadden pressed the now-candidate for Connecticut’s state house on his support for the death penalty: “The two men who committed the crime were sentenced to death, but then Connecticut voted to eliminate the death penalty entirely. Dr. Petit was an outspoken critic of the change.”

Contemporary cultural liberalism is essentially a cult of narcissism. If you’re an acolyte, you need to see your self-image – no matter how aberrational – reflected everywhere. Even in the Bible.

On Friday's New Day on CNN, during a segment focused on the major presidential candidates both accusing each other of "bigotry," host Chris Cuomo failed to challenge Rep.

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange doesn’t think that MSNBC or the New York Times would have published the Democratic National Committee e-mails that his website released, messages that showed party collusion with Hillary Clinton. Talking to Fox News’s Megyn Kelly, he explained, “I would like to believe that no organization, no organization, no media organization in the United States would not have published the DNC e-mails.”

Jimmy Fallon’s back at his Trump act. But this time, the Tonight Show host was joined on stage by avid Hillz supporter Barbra Streisand for an evening of musical Trump bashing. Parodying the Annie Get Your Gun song “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better,” Fallon crooned: “Any wall you can build, I can build taller.” Later, he sang “I can build casinos and deport Latinos,” to which Streisand parried: “I can vote for Hillary … she’s going to win, and she’s going to win HUUUGE.”

The New York Times editorial page has already raged that any opposition to the wishes of transgender activists is the new Jim Crow. Now it’s imposing its wrath on conservative politicians. Ken Paxton, the Republican Attorney General of Texas, secured an injunction against the Obama administration’s warning schools it would deny federal funds to any establishment failing to bow deeply to the bathroom wishes of transgender students.

The Times feels that Paxton opposes "common sense." That's Orwellian.

Editor’s Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope.)

If you want to be a victim, become a liberal. It doesn’t matter whether you want to go online to whine about your lot in life or whether you want to harm others with everything from shutting down free speech to fiddling with the climate. Both work.

Disturbing news broke Thursday that for the third time in a week US Navy ships in or near the Persian Gulf were harassed by vessels maned by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. But the situation escaladed Thursday when the vessels ignored warnings and got close enough to for the USS Squall to draw warning shots. As provocative as the actions of the Iranian vessels were, they did not seem important enough for the “Big Three” network news outlet who didn’t report about the engagement at all, Thursday evening.

Many liberals are certain that a Donald Trump presidency would be an unprecedented fiasco, but The Washington Monthly’s D.R. Tucker isn’t among them. In a Sunday post, Tucker suggested that in terms of racism and overall “incompetence,” a Trump administration would be a sort of sequel to George W. Bush’s, and speculated that Republicans who are backing Hillary Clinton may be, “on a very subtle psychological level…acknowledging that [Trump] would equal, if not surpass, Dubya in his dimwittedness.”

On Thursday night, Fusion/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos met his match in Fox News Channel’s Kelly File host Megyn Kelly, who proceeded call out Ramos on his claim that journalists shouldn’t be neutral in their coverage of Donald Trump and wondered if he’d do the same for Hillary Clinton since many consider her to be a liar like some Latinos consider Trump a racist.

The war of words in the 2016 race for president reached a new level Thursday when both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton accused one another of being a “bigot.” On CBS Evening News, fill-in anchor James Brown seemed disappointed in them, starting the show off saying, “The presidential campaign may have hit a low point today, and there are still 75 days to go.” While Brown seemed disappointed, both ABC and NBC took the opportunity to pounce on Trump and praise Clinton’s attacks.

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC political analyst Michael Eric Dyson was the latest liberal to claim that a general slogan like "Make America Great Again" really has a racist "code" of "white nationalism" as he claimed that even a generic reference to the "nation" of America implies "whiteness" "by default."
