Voters relying on TV news would think there was only one serious contender in the race.

Conservatives have said it for decades: "Sesame Street" is a commercial property that could be shopped for big bucks. There never was a need for government funding. Both broadcast and cable networks would pay a pretty penny to get their hands on this program. They knew it, too. But it was so much easier to stay at PBS and live off the generosity of the unsuspecting American taxpayer.

Since the Planned Parenthood house of horrors videos first emerged several weeks ago, ABC, CBS, and NBC have devoted 23.5 minutes to the story on their morning and evening news shows. By contrast, the killing of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe by an American dentist has spurred 97.5 minutes of coverage on those same shows.

Michael Moore: once a hate-filled mudslinger, always a hate-filled mudslinger.

Hillary Clinton says she will go further than President Obama in his radical executive amnesty efforts. She continues to defend Planned Parenthood even after horrific videos documented the sale of baby body parts for profit. She is wrapping herself in a gay agenda, viciously attacking religious freedom. But it's the Republicans that are the extremists.

Not every Muslim is a terrorist. There are millions of peaceful Muslim Americans. Yes, yes, Katie, we get it — and we don't need lectures from religious hypocrites.

The book begins with a discussion about the massive growth in the national debt and our entitlement programs, and then tackles education, immigration, the minimum wage and national security.

"Comedy" mocking Christian, Fox-watching, Reagan admirers is Jon Stewart's daily dish. This is why liberal journalists adore him.

The Center for Medical Progress has now issued a third recording of Planned Parenthood officials explaining their grotesque trafficking in baby body parts. It is even more devastating than the first two. The "news" media barely covered the second installment. They will probably pass over this one altogether. Trump World is apparently far more important than the extermination of babies for profit.

The end of the Supreme Court term was depressing for conservatives. The double-whammy of a 50-state mandate for gay marriage and the upholding of Obamacare sounded the alarms for religious freedom. All that unease is measurable.

Back in March, liberal pundits expressed horror at the alleged extremism of the Conservative Political Action Conference. But when the hardcore left met in Phoenix for Netroots Nation, the networks didn't see a problem, when socialist Bernie Sanders actually got bum-rushed off the stage for not being leftist enough. ABC, CBS and NBC couldn't locate that story.

Once again, a courageous group of pro-life activists has produced a damning sting video of Planned Parenthood, and this one has exposed the most outrageous behavior yet. This isn't the abortion conglomerate protecting pimps or statutory rapists as they seek abortions. This is the selling of the organs of babies after they've been killed.

On the day Scott Walker would announce in Wisconsin that he was running for president, The New York Times offered a typical takedown on the front page. "Admiring voters" found him to be authentic and approachable, but there were two words these fans apparently did not use: "Smart" and "sophisticated."

For decades now, the liberal "news" media have demonstrated a dramatic tilt toward the gay agenda, beginning with their notion that there is no such thing as a "gay agenda." But now, as the Supreme Court has mandated gay "marriage" in all 50 states, the liberal world is celebrating the agenda it has been pushing for decades.

Hillary Clinton's campaign again signaled its contempt for the press during a July 4 parade in New Hampshire. Aides brought out ropes to cordon off the media. It was the perfect metaphor for a "news" media so cowered by their candidate that they would allow such a humiliating action.

Welcome to the wacky world of "micro-aggressions," where conversation becomes a minefield of political correctness. It's all the rage on campuses.

Friday's gay marriage mandate is merely the latest "landmark" decision on the slippery slope toward obliterating any definition of consensual deviancy. We haven't defined deviancy down. We've shredded it. So where is the line to be drawn? Here's the awful truth: The left wants no lines.

President Obama seems allergic to the establishment press, as sycophantic as it is, because he cannot control them. He prefers one-on-one interviews with leftists that quiver in his presence, such as Marc Maron,a stand-up comedian and radio host in Los Angeles, who recently interviewed Obama on his WTF podcast.

Last week, Rush Limbaugh argued that "what this papal encyclical is saying is that every Catholic should vote for the Democrat Party. ... That's what it is. How else do you interpret it when the pope comes out and sounds like Al Gore on global warming and climate change?" Rush is correct, sadly. There are numerous unnecessary and annoying genuflections to liberal political ideology.

And here we go with another ride on the Insanity Express. This preposterous line has now been adopted by another segment of the loony Left. If a man is actually a woman if he chooses that "identity," a white woman like Dolezal is a black woman because she, too, believes it.
