James Taranto at The Wall Street Journal compared the two Washington Post editorials endorsing Obama for President, both 2008 and 2012, and found “Two Newspapers In One!” It turns out the Post was no judge of Obama's political character.

This year, the Post admitted: "Mr. Obama alienated Congress and business leaders by isolating himself inside a tight White House circle that manages to be both arrogant and thin-skinned. Too often his administration treats business as an obstacle rather than a partner." But in 2008, their editorial drank the Kool-Aid that Obama’s temperament and eloquence and inspiration to diversity-mongers would deliver America from peril:

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume upbraided the press for its lack of interest in pursuing the Obama administration’s misstatements and dissembling on what they knew before and after the Benghazi terrorist attacks, lamenting on Fox News Sunday that “one of the problems we’re having here is, that it has fallen to this news organization, Fox News and a couple others, to do all the heavy lifting on this story.”

A “couple of others” may be generous. CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson is about the only other major news outlet journalist showing any interest. “The mainstream organs of the media that would be after this like a pack of hounds, if this were a Republican President,” Hume observed, “have been remarkably reticent.”

Meet the Press viewers got to see a classic Left-Right debate Sunday.

In a discussion about which presidential candidate is the most trustworthy, New York Times columnist David Brooks surprisingly teamed up with former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina to school the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow (video follows with NBCNews.com transcript and commentary):

As the obsession with "ultraconservatives" who oppose abortion in every circumstance continues, some in the media are baiting Republicans to fall into the whirlpool of abortion, contraception, and the like to make this election be about anything but Obama’s record.  For example, Yahoo! News has a piece from Rachael Rettner of LiveScience discussing if Romney could overturn Roe v. Wade, which is odd since this is a column about the courts – not science.

LiveScience already has seen some controversy when it published a study indicating that low IQ and conservative political beliefs are linked to prejudice.  However, concerning abortion rights, Rettner cited I. Glenn Cohen, Harvard Law School assistant professor and co-director of the school's Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, who said that "with the justices sitting on the court now, it's very unlikely an abortion case would garner the five votes needed to reverse the ruling."

Andrew Sullivan made a fool of himself on ABC's This Week Sunday.

For the entertainment pleasure of viewers, George Will and PBS's Gwen Ifill assisted the Obama-loving Daily Beast columnist (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Donald Trump and Bette Midler are having a war on Twitter.

After the actor and singer accused Trump of ruining New York Friday, the real estate tycoon struck back and struck back hard:

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took quite a shot at Barack Obama Sunday.

Appearing on ABC's This Week, Gingrich said of the President, "You’ll notice he’s canceling his trips over the hurricane. He did not cancel his trips over Benghazi."

The Des Moines Register shocked many political observers Saturday by endorsing Mitt Romney for president.

Clearly not accepting such a thing, Michael Tomasky, the Obama-loving correspondent for the Daily Beast, came out Sunday claiming the Register's endorsement "is little more than a practical joke":

For the second time in two months, Barack Obama made a joke about his birth certificate.

At a campaign event in Nashua, New Hampshire, Saturday, the President used the issue to bash Mitt Romney.

As liberal reporters obsess and nearly faint in the waning days of the campaign that conservatives would dare to assert a right to life for a human being conceived in rape, NPR.org offers a better idea: Plants deserve rights. The NPR headline: “Recognizing the Right of Plants to Evolve.”

Unborn babies have no rights...unlike the sensitive weeds in your garden? Pro-choice, but anti-chili pepper?

A mix of hatred and despair on display Friday night from a member of Barack Obama’s core constituency: the Hollywood Left. On something called John Fugelsang: So That Happened, which runs weekly on Current, actor/radio host Jay Thomas combined fret and an insult in decrying the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: “I can’t believe we’re talking the 21st century and these two white idiots are running for something.”

Saying “these are the most un-modern people I’ve ever seen. They’re medieval, almost” because “they don’t believe in abortion,” Thomas despaired: “I’m really worried, and I feel right now that Mitt Romney has a really good chance of winning the election.”

A pretty funny bit from ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live proving some people accept whatever they are told and have no hesitation about pronouncing their opinion on it. Even if it never occurred. Kimmel sent a camera crew onto Hollywood Boulevard, outside his Los Angeles studio, to ask people who “won” the “First Lady Debate”?

As excerpted, the Thursday before last, at the end of FNC’s Special Report with Bret Baier, passers by weren’t shy about sharing their assessments of how Michelle Obama and Ann Romney performed in the supposed “First Lady Debate.”

Tina Fey isn't the only actor helping the Center for Reproductive Rights raise money and "consciousness" about how women need quick (and occasionally subsidized) abortions. For their "Draw the Line" campaign against the pro-life movement in America and around the world, a whole roster of stars (and semi-stars) filmed a pro-abortion video.

That left-wing cast included Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, Sandra Bernhard, Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick, Lisa Kudrow, Tea Leoni, Audra McDonald, Martha Plimpton, Oliver Platt, Ally Sheedy, and Billy Crudup:

Fox News star Bill O’Reilly yelled at Geraldo Rivera on his show Friday night about how Brian Williams and Bob Schieffer failed to press Barack Obama on the facts about the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Rivera tried to change the subject by claiming Romney should have played journalist at the last debate.

Later in the show, Imus sidekick Bernard McGuirk said the Brian Williams interview was disgusting and they should have played Johnny Mathis music behind Williams and Obama.

Having not done a press conference since June, Barack Obama has instead appeared on ABC's The View, CBS's Late Show with David Letterman, and NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Apparently feeling MSNBC's Morning Joe will present him with similar softballs and friendly confines, the President is doing an interview with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Saturday to be aired Monday just eight days before Americans go to the polls.
