The journalists of Good Morning America offered, perhaps, a preview of 2016, highlighting Chris Christie's weight and what "could be a major campaign issue." After playing clips of the New Jersey governor talking to David Letterman, guest co-host Amy Robach scolded, "He's going to have to lay off the doughnuts."

Co-anchor George Stephanopoulos lectured, "[Christie] knows it. If he wants to run, he is going to have to lose some real weight." Reporter Dan Harris found a medical expert. The correspondent related, "Former White House physician Connie Mariano, who helped President Clinton lose 30 pounds in office, said she cringed when she saw Christie eating that doughnut and that she's worried about him dying on the job."

CNN anchors dropped journalistic integrity and went into full attack mode against supporters of the ban on gay Boy Scouts on Wednesday morning.

When the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins questioned why the Scouts should change their long-standing policy, anchor Soledad O'Brien blurted out "Because it's discriminatory," before adding "Because they think it's discriminatory." She then asked "My final question for you, do you worry you are on the wrong side of history on this?" [Video below the break. Audio here.]

Rather predictably, many of last Sunday's Super Bowl ads have been criticized for supposedly being racist.

On NBC's Tonight Show Tuesday, host Jay Leno marvelously asked, “When will advertisers learn the only stereotype nobody gets mad at is white guys making fools of themselves over beer?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

While Hollywood liberals such as Jim Carrey mock gun owners in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, massacre, Bruce Willis on Wednesday strongly came out in support of the Second Amendment.

Speaking to the Associated Press, Willis said, "I think that you can't start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it's all going to become undone."

Just how desperate are the folks at the Huffington Post to titillate readers with articles about scantily clad women, wardrobe malfunctions, and exposed body parts?

On Tuesday, the Post actually broke a story about a dress that disappears when the wearer becomes aroused. Problem is this was introduced sixteen months ago.

New York Times reporter and Obama biographer Jodi Kantor caught up with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's book tour in Chicago for Monday's edition in "Sotomayor, a Star on the Book-Tour Circuit, Sees a New Niche for a Justice." Kantor promoted the liberal justice as a kind of folk hero "dispensing homespun wisdom."

At her Wednesday night book talk here, Justice Sonia Sotomayor glided through her audience of 700, dispensing homespun wisdom through a cordless microphone, interrupted by impromptu applause.

On his HBO show Friday night, Bill Maher wrapped up by accusing conservatives of needing constant reaffirmation, and accused conservative authors of writing "the exact same book" over and over to separate conservatives from their cash.

"Maybe they can only vote once every two years, but they can buy the same book, every three weeks. The exact same book. Over. And over. And over again. [Conservative book covers displayed, listed below.] I don’t know why being a Republican means needing to have your faith recharged five times a day like Dick Cheney’s heart. (Laughter) Because there’s no comparable industry on the Left dedicated to separating liberals from their cash. I mean, unless you count Whole Foods." But when it comes to separating lefties from their cash, shouldn't Maher put on camera how much it costs to see his standup routine in a concert hall? Try $75:

Barack The First? Wow: who would have thought that perhaps the strongest statement yet in condemnation of President Obama's self-arrogated right to kill Americans abroad would have come from Jon Meacham?  Yet on today's Morning Joe, historian Meacham—who knows something about the use and abuse of presidential power—criticized Obama for ignoring the "rule of law" and actually described Obama as acting like "an American king."

Joe Scarborough seconded Meacham's surprising statement, adding that had this come to light under George W. Bush, impeachment would be in the air.  View the video after the jump.

If I were launching a new conservative venture, the last venue I’d choose for the announcement would be the New York Times. Karl Rove has gone to the Times to announce that he has created a new “conservative” entity “to recruit seasoned candidates and protect Senate incumbents from challenges by far-right conservatives and Tea Party enthusiasts.”

Rove argues that Republican fortunes have been ruined by “far-right conservatives,” but he’s shamelessly calling this entity the “Conservative Victory Project.” Yes, and I could call myself Ray Lewis, but it doesn’t make it so.

Politico reported Tuesday that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's (R) doctor has warned him that his "luck is going to run out relatively soon" if he doesn't do something about his weight.

Despite this, Christie told CBS Late Show host David Letterman Monday, "I'm like basically the healthiest fat guy you've ever seen in your life."

In a new Lean Forward promo spot for MSNBC, Politics Nation host the Rev. Al Sharpton invoked the language of the Pledge of Allegiance, sans the term "under God." In the spot, Sharpton rattled off a laundry list of pet issues that MSNBC obsessed over in 2012 as he dreamed of a "nation that is really living up to the creed of one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

I often wonder how MSNBC's Chris Matthews looks at himself in the mirror each morning when he shaves and brushes his teeth.

Seems impossible when he makes comments like he did on Tuesday's Hardball: "[The Republican Party] spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting, or young people" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

During a panel discussion on Tuesday's NBC Today about the White House releasing a photo of President Obama skeet shooting to dispel doubt about his claim of doing it "all the time," co-host Matt Lauer worried about the precedent that had been set: "So like releasing the birth certificate a year or so ago, this is the next step, that now the President always has to back up his words with proof?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Lauer's concern seemed to follow administration talking points perfectly. On Sunday's Today, correspondent Peter Alexander reported: "This weekend, the White House tried to shut down the doubters. The President's former senior advisor [David Plouffe] even referred to those who still question where Mr. Obama was born. [Image of Plouffe Tweet] 'Attention, skeet birthers. Make our day – let the photoshop conspiracies begin!'"

CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin compared the push for the Boy Scouts to accept gays to the struggle over interracial marriage and same-sex marriage. She slammed any ban on gay scouts, local or national, as "discrimination," on Tuesday afternoon's Newsroom.

"They've been arguing that, Brooke, for years. If you let a black person marry a white person society will end. If you let gay and lesbian couples marry, society will end. That's an argument that has failed time and time again. And so to argue that we should discriminate because you want the Boy Scouts of America to survive is just a bunch of nonsense," Hostin told anchor Brooke Baldwin. [Video below the break.

Editor's Note: This was originally slated for publication on Feb. 1. We apology for the delay | Many have rightly condemned MSNBC's serpentine editing of a video to make it appear that certain gun rights activists heckled the father of a 6-year-old victim of the Sandy Hook shooting massacre, but let's not pretend this was a one-off event.

The liberal media long ago forfeited their respected role as watchdog over the government and have voluntary descended to the status of a public relations arm of the Democratic Party and various liberal causes.
