The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, but The New York Times would have to consign it to the ghetto for "Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous" books. That's what "The Gray Lady" has done to David Limbaugh and his new book, "The Emmaus Code: Finding Jesus in the Old Testament."

Religion and violence was a pretty constant combination 500 years ago, but what relevance should that have in the 21st century? Liberals want to absolve all Muslims for yesterday's massacre by condemning all Christians for the 1500s? That, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a stretch.

After seven years of media adoration, President Obama was stunned and prickly. At a press conference in Antalya, Turkey, American reporters kept asking him why he was declaring his anti-ISIS strategy was working, when clearly it isn't. The moment was stunning, because the media, after many years of servility, grew tired with Obama's sense of superiority.

The actor Bryan Cranston is now making the interview rounds promoting his new movie lionizing the Hollywood communist Dalton Trumbo. As one should always expect when the Hollywood left starts talking about the blacklist, the communists were the First Amendment heroes.

The NBC brand is in shambles. There is no pretense of impartiality anywhere. The Comcast empire is firmly vested in the Democrats. The GOP needs to wash its hands of Comcast.

The libertine left has done a lot of boasting over the last several years about the inevitability of History vanquishing every corner of American social conservatism. Election Day 2015 was a terrible day for these revolutionaries, as so often it is when it's the American people, not liberal elites, making the decisions.

A debate among the Republican presidential candidates is supposed to benefit Republican primary voters. The moderators would, ideally, ask questions that reflect the values and questions of GOP voters, not the hive mentality of liberal partisans.

Weeks after NBC granted Hillary Clinton the favor of appearing on "Saturday Night Live," playing a bartender to the actress who impersonates her on the comedy show, the same leftist activists who adored that routine are trying to prevent Donald Trump from hosting the show on Nov. 7.

To hear the media tell it, Hillary Clinton came to Capitol Hill as a bullfighter and easily killed the angry bulls of the House Benghazi committee. The "mainstream" media wondered why these crazy Republicans would "walk into the trap" of trying to scrutinize and question a media darling.

When James Carville rants that Rep. Trey Gowdy is a super-villain spawned by Rupert Murdoch, conservatives could reply by noting that Murdoch has much less of a financial connection to Gowdy than he does to gay leftist TV producer Ryan Murphy, who had one hit with "Glee" and an ugly garbage barge of other TV programs.

The one consistent media line on Benghazi is that exploring it was "political" immediately after it happened on Sept.11, 2012, and it's still "political" to explore it in 2015 and 2016. As long as the Clintons stay active in politics, their scandals will continue, as will the damage control.

Craig Shirley has already written two terrific history books about Ronald Reagan, chronicling the 1976 and 1980 presidential campaigns. Now he has delivered the trifecta: "Last Act: The Final Years and Emerging Legacy of Ronald Reagan."

We've been waiting for the media attacks on Ben Carson to begin. To this point he'd been (relatively) untouched: He wasn't viewed as a credible threat. But his numbers aren't receding. They're growing. So he's now in the crosshairs.

Every Republican running to face Clinton knows that the news and entertainment conglomerates in Manhattan and Hollywood are going to lay down miles of red carpet for her to walk on. Whether all that help will ever warm up Clinton's image remains to be seen. But the effort will be Herculean.

To Pelosi, the right to abort is "sacred ground," never to suffer interference from politicians. How she thinks that squares with "devout Catholic" is anyone's guess.

The latest Gallup Poll finds that only 7 percent of Americans declare they have a "great deal" of trust in the media. At this rate, soon it will be just the media and their immediate families who check that box.

The Obama years may be winding down, but our President Obama-loving media never stops being hypersensitive about the man. CNN's latest poll asked respondents "Do you happen to know what religion Barack Obama is?" and "Where was Barack Obama born, as far as you know?"

Ten years have elapsed since one of the most amazing cases of Republican-bashing media bias in the television era began.
