WE BEGIN today with remainders, starting with Senator Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush, and a Clinton Cash clean up at the Kindle aisle, due to Peter Schweizer‘s fact-challenged book. Then there’s the 20-week abortion ban to address, and the preposterous idea that anyone with anti-women’s rights views can be a feminist. The topic was discussed recently between Megyn Kelly and Kirsten Powers, the latter having a new book out. I disabuse anyone of that notion today and set the record straight on what it means and takes to be a feminist.

…and what has George Stephanopoulos been thinking for the past two years? Oh, and by the way, during the recording of my Volume 6 podcast it was reported that the amount of his donation went from $50,000 to $75,000.
In a statement to the On Media blog on Thursday, Stephanopoulos apologized and said that he should have disclosed the donations to ABC News and its viewers.
“I made charitable donations to the Foundation in support of the work they’re doing on global AIDS prevention and deforestation, causes I care about deeply,” he said. “I thought that my contributions were a matter of public record. However, in hindsight, I should have taken the extra step of personally disclosing my donations to my employer and to the viewers on air during the recent news stories about the Foundation. I apologize.”
[…] In its own statement on Thursday, ABC News said it was standing behind its star anchor.
“As George has said, he made charitable donations to the Foundation to support a cause he cares about deeply and believed his contributions were a matter of public record,” the network’s statement read. “He should have taken the extra step to notify us and our viewers during the recent news reports about the Foundation. He’s admitted to an honest mistake and apologized for that omission. We stand behind him.”
ABC News later told the On Media blog that it would not take any punitive action against Stephanopoulos: “We accept his apology,” a spokesperson said. “It was an honest mistake.”
