The Sony email hack produced more than just a pair of bratty Sony execs calling actress Angelina Jolie a spoiled brat.  They also shared racially insensitive remarks about President Obama’s taste in movies. Not to worry.  They are Democrat donors.  That will probably keep them from being pilloried by the press and cast into purgatory.  […]

For all of the media reports about the tragedies of Aurora, Newton, and Columbine, is it TOO much to ask of a national news anchor, CNN’s Carol Costello, to remember that incident of what the Obama Administration continues to label “workplace violence”? “I used to work in Washington, live in Washington.
