On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough is angry at the Democrat presidential contenders for having, in last night's debate, focused on the details dividing them regarding health care. He suggests that they should instead paint the bigger picture: "the Democratic Party supports universal healthcare as a right for all Americans! Donald Trump wants to destroy your right to having health care as an American! A guarantee of that health care." Later, Scarborough mistakenly suggests that Alex Trebek is the host of "Wheel of Fortune." Willie Geist politely points out that show's host is Pat Sajak.



Carol Costello and her two clerical guests slammed "climate change deniers" on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom. Costello pointed out a recent sarcastic Tweet by Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak on the climate change issue that "sparked a firestorm," and spotlighted how "religious leaders are more than concerned about statements like that. They're now battling climate change deniers on moral grounds."

The anchor turned to Reverend Mitchell Hescox of the Evangelical Environmental Network and CNN religion commentator Father Edward Beck as her one-sided panel on the topic, and accused the "deniers" of not only eschewing science, but also being unfaithful to Scripture: [MP3 audio available here; video below the jump]



Wheel of Fortune host and 2007 MRC Dishonors Awards accepter Pat Sajak, on a recent episode, mocked New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's nanny-statism by taking a drink from a large cup. The NYC audience greeted the gag with laughter.

After he took a swig from the drink Sajak remarked: "You know I made an important discovery, cola is actually better with transfats in it." (video after the jump)



Now in its 26th year, today the 5,000 edition of the syndicated Wheel of Fortune game show will air around the nation – which reminded me (always looking for a hook to plug our upcoming “DisHonors Awards”) -- that just under two years ago Wheel host Pat Sajak took part in our 2007 event. At the MRC’s “2007 DisHonors Awards: Roasting the Most Outrageously Biased Liberal Reporters of 2006,” the showcase of the MRC's 20th Anniversary Gala on March 29, 2007, Sajak accepted, on behalf of Rosie O'Donnell, the “I’m Not a Political Genius But I Play One on TV Award.” O'Donnell won for spouting:
As a result of the [9/11] attack and the killing of nearly 3,000 innocent people, we invaded two countries and killed innocent people in their countries....Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.
Video is of Herman Cain introducing Sajak and then Sajak's humorous remarks as he accepted the award in jest for O'Donnell.

Which all goes to remind everyone that this year's “DisHonors Awards for the Worst Reporting of the Year” with the annual “William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence” to be presented to Brit Hume, are just 20 days away. Every year, we sell out. So don't procrastinate on getting a ticket.


As reported by NewsBuster Matthew Balan, Barbra Streisand's endorsement of Hillary Clinton provoked liberal CNN columnist Jack Cafferty to call Streisand a 'reclusive, over-the-hill vocalist'.
