PAY GAP: Men get paid more than women. I separated the men and women in my studio audience and asked those with jobs to, anonymously, write down how much money they earned. For every dollar the men made, the women only made 83 cents. That's slightly more the national average of 77 cents.
Martha Burk, author of "Cult of Power: Sex Discrimination in Corporate America," calls that "discrimination".
Women make less because they make different choices.
Sabrina Schaeffer, Independent Women's Forum executive director, says feminists are wrong to think of women as victims. She says women can "have it all."
TITLE IX: Shawn Ladda, the former President of the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport, claims Title IX is what allows women to play sports in college. But now the law, because it requires gender equality, eliminates men's teams.
BIOLOGY: Dr. Daniel Amen, author of "Unleash the Power of the Female Brain," says men and women's brains are different. No matter how sex-neutral parents try to be, boys and girls will behave differently.
MYTHS: Is it true that women are bad drivers? Not really. Men drive faster than women, are more likely to speed, drive drunk, run stop signs, and they crash twice as often as women do. Based on that, you gotta say, women are better drivers.
Do men cheat more than women? Yes. A Kinsey Institute study found 19 percent of women and 23 percent of men reported cheating. But the numbers are close. Cheating isn't just a guy thing.

This Week's Show -- July 10, 2014
CENSORSHIP AT CBS: Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has a similar story. She explains why she left CBS after it became "harder and harder to get stories on television" that criticized this government and "any powers that be."
IS STOSSEL BIASED?: Years ago, journalist Howard Kurtz criticized me for not being objective. I said it's impossible for any journalist to be completely objective. Now that Howard Kurtz is on Fox, we debate again.
THE OBJECTIVITY MYTH: Andrew Kirell of Mediaite.com says, "every journalist has a point of view and they don't just magically check it the minute they walk in the newsroom door."
NEW MEDIA: Reason TV's Remy Munasifi uses music videos and parodies to complain about things like politicians' spending. One of his latest parodies highlights the scandal surrounding the VA hospitals. Munasifi discusses his videos, which have gone viral on YouTube.
RETRO REPORT: It's great there's a new media organization called Retro Report, which reveals media hype of the past ("crack babies," America's landfill "crisis," the "superpredator," etc.) and corrects stories everyone in the media got wrong. I discuss the new show with its executive producer, Kyra Darnton.
REAL OR FAKE?: Sometimes people in the media say things that are so bizarre, you'd think they were made up. Kennedy of The Independents quizzes FoxBusiness.com's Kate Rogers, Fox Business host Charles Payne and me to see if any of us can tell which quotes are real, and which were made up by my staff.
MY TAKE: I used to report on lots of scares. CBS even ran an ad for me where someone called me a "guardian angel."
That's bunk. The only guardian angel is a free and open society. That's what allows innovation, gives people longer lives, and lifts billions out of poverty. But these gradual improvements aren't newsworthy. Scares and disaster make the news.
News is broken not just because we're biased but because most good and important news happens slowly.
