President Barack Obama had the best one-liner of the weekend when he lit up Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly with this zinger:  "I love the press," Obama told the Gridiron Club Dinner. "I even sat for an interview with Bill O'Reilly right before the Super Bowl. That was a change of pace. ... I don't often get a chance to be in a room with an ego that's bigger than mine. "  Say what you will about Obama, but that was a good line. Burn book!

The Sun's editorial, "The canceled policies" (Oct. 31), completely ignores the real reason for the Republicans' "outrage, indignation and venom. " It is not about the Affordable Care Act's written policy as the editorial opines, it is about President Barack Obama and his administration's repetitive public lying to the Congress (who admit they did not read the law) and to the American people by promising they could keep their current health care coverage. This lie was said to gain the necessary support to pass the legislation.

I don't know how I could have missed Bill O'Reilly interviewing Nancy Grace Monday night. Oh, I know, that must have been when I was off dancing with the devil. I have said a number of times that O'Reilly's mastery of TV is as close to that of Johnny Carson's as any nightly performer I have seen in my lifetime. Love him or hate him, you have to admire his skill as a broadcaster. I have also said that Grace is essentially a plague on American television. I think I called her a vile presence at least once.

Fox News is not backing off on the Baltimore prison story scandal despite a bunch of big national stories that have conservatives salivating over the damage they see the Obama administration suffering. Take a look at this video (below) from Bill O'Reilly that features Jesse Watters bird-dogging Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Gary Maynard, the chief of Maryland prisons. Check out O'Reilly saying that Maynard "sounds like a moron. " I asked O'Malley about it Tuesday morning in Joppa during a set visit he paid to the soundstages where "House of Cards" is filmed.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: BLOVIATE You're accustomed to seeing words of impeccable Latin or Greek pedigree in this feature, but with more than a year to go until the next presidential election, it seemed best to pick for this week's word something purely American and apposite. Bloviate (pronounced BLOW-vee-ate)

ATLANTA -- A recent poll has found that 61 percent of black Americans believe that the values of poor blacks have become "more different" from the values of middle-class blacks in recent years. With the possible exception of Bill O'Reilly - who professed astonishment at the good manners of black patrons at a Harlem restaurant - no one should be surprised at those findings. There have long been two Americas - both black. One is inhabited by the accomplished, the educated, the pragmatic.

After nearly a week of reflection on his abrupt firing from National Public Radio, commentator Juan Williams said Tuesday he believes he did not breach "any journalistic ethics" when he said on television that he felt unsettled when passengers dressed in Muslim garb board airplanes. "Over the weekend, people would say to me, 'Oh, you just got a new deal from Fox? Congratulations, that it all worked out so well,'" Williams said in an interview with the Baltimore Sun following an address at the University of Maryland School of Law that earned him a standing ovation.

Reviewing national media coverage of the Black Guerrilla Family's virtual takeover of the Baltimore City Detention Center, it's impossible not to feel the pressure mounting on Gov. Martin O'Malley who is expected to return this week from a trip to the Middle East. And how he handles the scandal could go a long way in determining how well he does or doesn't do with those national aspirations we've been hearing so much about the last year. I can see the image of Black Family Guerrilla gang leader Tavon White, who is alleged to have held virtual control of the detention center, haunting O'Malley in attack ads throughout any future campaigns.

It's no secret that Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has a high opinion of himself. To his credit, he does consistently produce the best ratings in cable news.  But last night, O'Reilly stepped up claims of his own importance to new levels: He took credit for the capture of the FBI's most wanted American, former Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger.  "This is amazing that 'The Factor' could lead to the capture of a serial killer, Whitey Bulger," O'Reilly...

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly last night continued his hip hop-themed debate series -- this time against Lupe Fiasco, the influential Chicago rapper who recently called President Barack Obama the country's "biggest terrorist. "  After losing (in my estimation) to comedian Jon Stewart in a recent debate over rapper Common's invitation to a White House poetry reading, O'Reilly was ready to redeem himself last night -- and he sort of did that.  "We're used to irresponsible statements from rappers, but that's really over-the-top," O'Reilly said of Lupe's comments.  So, after ripping Obama over the contrived Common controversy, O'Rellly now found himself defending Obama.

Network and cable TV channels amped up the star power last night as presidential politics took over prime time. But in this age of rapidly expanding media, the news operations that did best where the ones that emphasized information and technology over personality. First came the technology used on TV screens to help tell the election-night story visually - a narrative that could have been bewildering with 24 states in play. CNN provided a font of fast-breaking information and clear-eyed analysis, particularly from correspondent John King, who pushed and pulled at a touch screen as he broke down states county by county, using an array of lines and colors.

Stephen Colbert's "testimony" before Congress last week was a clear sign that ironic rot (if you've got a better term, let me know) is sinking into the foundation of our political system. Irony or post-irony or ironic post-whatever has been metastasizing through the culture for decades. The most famous example was "Seinfeld," a hilarious show that was famously "about nothing" and much-derided by earnest writers on the left and right for its detached mockery of any deeply held principle or conviction.
