As NewsBusters reported Thursday, the season finale of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones included a gruesome image of former President George W. Bush's severed head impaled on a stake.
In the wake of heat from conservative critics including us, the New York Daily News reports the cable network has taken action to rectify its egregious error:

HBO's Bill Maher on Friday blamed racism in America on the creator and editor of one of the nation's leading news aggregating websites The Drudge Report.
In a Real Time segment defending actress Gwyneth Paltrow from recent accusations of racism for an indelicate Twitter comment, Maher said, "The problem with racism is Matt Drudge" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
The double standards operating against outspoken conservatives are legion. Perhaps no one knows this better than talk radio host Rush Limbaugh who has been the target of the left's hatred for decades now. Watching the latest news in the business of sports, he's got to be shaking his head in dismay.
If you're a liberal like Bill Maher, a generous donor to a Super PAC support Barack Obama's re-election efforts, and you invest as much as $20 million to buy a part of the New York Mets, the New York Times gives you favorable coverage. Completely leaving out Maher's recent, and long-running, history of using vile and misogynistic terms to describe conservative women, both on his HBO show and his stand-up comedy shows, the NYT described Maher as "the most celebrated person — at least the only one with a TV show — known to have become a new partner in the team."
Donald Trump on Monday had some harsh words for Bill Maher's incessant attacks on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's Mormonism.
Appearing on Fox News's On the Record, the real estate mogul said, "If a conservative Republican made a like statement about somebody else's religion, there’d be hell to pay. It’ll be all over the place. It would be the end of that person's career as you know it" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

HBO's Bill Maher on Friday received a much-needed education on U.S. corporate profits from - wait for it! - an African-born international economist (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
If you’re afraid of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s call for limiting the size of soft drinks, you’re going to quake in your boots when you hear what filmmaker John Waters said Friday.

In this week's "How Dumb Is Bill Maher" segment, the Obama-supporting comedian actually said on HBO's Real Time Friday that the United States ranks fifth worst in the world in income inequality.
Actually, we rank 43rd (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Is there no level Bill Maher won't stoop to attack a conservative?
On HBO's Real Time Friday, the Obama-supporting host said during his New Rules segment, "Now that Scott Walker has survived his recall, he has to tell us once and for all was he that kid in Deliverance" (video follows with commentary):
The next time CNN denies having any liberal bias, it will have to explain having liberal Obama donor Bill Maher guest-hosting on Friday night during prime-time. Not only is Maher an avowed Obama-supporter, but he has made headlines spewing vitriol against conservative women – and still CNN has made him a welcome guest on multiple occasions.
On Friday's Piers Morgan Tonight, Maher hosted "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane for a liberal chat where both praised Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and lauded "great guy" Jimmy Carter, along with slamming the "culture wars" and the "outrage industry" on the right.
CNN jumped all over Donald Trump's "birther" remarks on Tuesday as Trump hosted a fund raiser for Mitt Romney. CNN ran the story almost every single hour on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, hyping Romney's message getting "Trumped" by his supporter's controversial statements.
In contrast, CNN showed no initial scrutiny of foul-mouthed comedian Bill Maher's $1 million donation to a pro-Obama Super PAC in February. Maher is infamous for his vile and disgusting insults of conservative women, but when he announced the donation CNN simply reported it without any hint of controversy.
Less than ten minutes after HBO's Bill Maher ignorantly claimed giving to the Mormon Church isn't like donating to a real charity, he once again had the nerve to attack the intellectual capacity of Sarah Palin.
During one of his New Rules at the end of Real Time, the pompous host joked about the former Alaska governor thinking Native Americans are from India (video follows with transcript and commentary):
