Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features Allison Yarrow of the Newsweek/Daily Beast online show “NewsBeast” sniping over former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant. “Can you imagine being that organ donor?” she asked. “I would never do it. I would say, ‘Give me my heart back,’” she said of Cheney, who, she added, “may be one of the most evil people in the world.”

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: “Yarrow verbalized publicly what I’m sure much of the national press corps believe, the ridiculous notion that Cheney defines evil in a world of mass murdering dictators. They’re so overtaken by their disgust for him that they are unable to see that his national security policies, which they so revile, are being largely followed by their beloved President Obama.”

Rating: Five out of five screams.
