Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features CNN's Piers Morgan slapping down critics of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

He said: "I'm getting a little bit weary, I'll be honest with you, with the relentless attacks - first on [United Nations Ambassador] Susan Rice and now on Hillary Clinton. There's a whisper of misogyny to it, I think, and it's getting pretty, I think, incestuous and very Washington-orientated rather than in the national interest of America."

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: "If you don't agree with him on gun control, he ridicules you as 'stupid,' and if you dare to hold the Obama administration accountable on Benghazi, he slurs you as a 'misogynist.' And Morgan, a British citizen, is appalled some Americans want him deported for abusing his position on CNN to belittle Americans."

Rating: Four out of five screams.
