In a segment with Fox News liberal contributor Bob Beckel last week, O’Reilly said NBC News wasn’t being critical in its coverage of the Obama administration and its drone program. This, even though it was NBC News that broke the story about the administration deeming it legal to target and kill Americans that appear to be terrorists.

Deadspin, Gawker and GQ writer Drew Magary isn’t so kind about the comma, saying, “Commas are the worst because eight billion people have eight billion different ideas about where they’re supposed to go.” And film critic and author Kurt Loder (formerly of MTV) can’t say enough about the ellipses.

2. Facials gone awry: There are facials and then there are BuzzFeed‘s idea of facials. You have to love that they have this right on their front page. Read here.

3. Koppel not thoughtful? Fox News Contributor Bernard Goldberg calls newsman Ted Koppel “not thoughtful” in reaction to Koppel’s take down of cable news last week on NBC’s Rock Center. WaPo‘s Erik Wemple seems truly perplexed by this assessment. Read here.

“That’s Not Commentary, That’s a Man-Crush”

That was Bernard Goldberg on CNN’s Reliable Sources with Howard Kurtz yesterday. “What Chris Matthews talked about, a ‘thrill running up his leg,’ that’s not commentary, that’s a man-crush,” the “A Slobbering Love Affair” author said on the media’s coverage of Barack Obama.

Goldberg also discussed Bill O’Reilly and Fox News and the media’s coverage of Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
