Kudos to Bill Maher for actually doing a neutral piece, and for exposing the hypocrisy of his own kind.
During the last day (Thursday-Friday), Stephen Colbert, who by this point counts as a comedic warhorse for liberalism, has been on blast for a Tweet from the account for his show. The missive has since been taken down, but while it was live, it read: “I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.” Shocking, to be sure, but the target seemed to be fairly clear (especially when viewed in context): Redskins’ owner Dan Snyder had just announced, with astonishing audacity, his jaw-droppingly named Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, an obvious attempt to blunt criticism of his team’s name. But writer and activist Suey Park decided that bringing Asians and Asian-Americans in on the satire was a misstep, calling on Comedy Central to “#CancelColbert.”Deservedly, Colbert was hit from his own left by slams for the Asian community, who found his tweet insulting and racist, and called for his show to be cancelled. In response, yellow-bellied Colbert responded by saying it was not HE who had tweeted the insult, but someone from his staff. He pointed to his PERSONAL Twitter account and said, "See, it wasn't ME who said it." But as is always the case when an underling tweets or speaks in your name, it stands to reason that the underling thought the principal would approve. That's because had there not been an uproar, Colbert would certainly have claimed credit for the unfunny remark.

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.
Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.
Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’
At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.
Such disregard for human life is incomprehensible to normal-minded people. Only savages or animals could so callously toss the remains of a murdered child into the trash bin. It takes a monster then to light the fire that consumes these precious lifeless bodies. I cannot even think of a name fitting for those who justify it as "waste-to-energy." Satan comes to mind, though.The programme, which will air tonight [March 24], found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.
