Just hours after President-elect Donald Trump picked Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to run the Environmental Protection Agency, the New York Times on Wednesday quickly expressed concern. The online headline fretted, “Donald Trump Picks Scott Pruitt, Ally of Fossil Fuel Industry, to Lead E.P.A.”

On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Newsroom and The Situation Room both ran reports highlighting liberal groups that went public with a letter attacking National Security Advisor-designate, retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn for having "inflammatory views" and making "Islamophobic remarks," as they called on President-elect Donald Trump not to follow through on appointing him to work in his administration.

The letter notably uses as one of its sources a CNN.com article and includes some of the very distortions perpetrated by CNN that NewsBusters has been hitting the news network over for the past few weeks, as various CNN shows have repeatedly played edited clips from two of Flynn's speeches that omitted references to "radical Islam," making it appear Flynn was attacking all Muslims as a "cancer."

Are U.S. elections reliable? Should the results be universally respected and accepted? Can one challenge the results without being smeared as a threat to society or at least a poor loser? The New York Times can’t make its mind up. After Donald Trump refused to say he would accept the election results two weeks before the election (when the media was already crowning Hillary the winner), the Times was crammed with stories about the dictatorial dangers of refusing to accept election results. But when liberal anti-Trump protesters engaged in violent protest in the wake of Trump’s surprise victory, there was no problem. Similarly, the NYT seems fine with Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s expensive recount. No wailing about how the $7 million Stein has raised to fund the recount could have fed a hungry child or helped save the planet, just mildly encouraging reports with no hint of impropriety or threat, in the face of Stein hinting at vote fraud and refusing to accept the results of a free and fair election.

BuzzFeed must have a use-it-or-lose-it malevolence budget, because as 2016 draws to a close, the hate pieces are coming fast and thick. Last week it was the hit job on the Gainses, (they may believe in traditional marriage!). Now, “White people are a plague to the planet.”

In an exclusive phone interview with Donald Trump on Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt grilled the President-elect on his use of Twitter, fretting: “I have not seen you backing off fights on Twitter. In the time since you were elected, you’ve targeted the cast of Hamilton, The New York Times, China, Boeing, the media, and SNL. Is this proving to be a habit that you're finding a difficult time breaking?”

What a difference a Person of the Year can make. In 2008, Time journalists hailed their choice, Barack Obama, as an "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Jedi and cheered, “Why History Can’t Wait.” In contrast, 2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump is an “outlandish” “demagogue.” The Obama cover featured the now cliched hope poster. Trump’s image read, “President of the Divided States of America.”

Lately, Hollywood has been in a bit of panic mode. Clearly the election of Donald Trump has thrown them through a loop because they left no room for even the slimmest possibility of Trump winning the presidency. Comedian Tina Fey is no different and let her apparent distress be known to David Letterman in an interview he conducted with her for The Hollywood Reporter. The former late-night host commiserated with the former Saturday Night Live comedian over their newly found realization of American’s “misogyny”--(rich, coming from the host who admitted to sleeping with his interns)--and how they would deal with the disappointing blow.

CNN political commentator Van Jones hosted a special town hall event titled The Messy Truth Tuesday night, to talk about how “both parties kind of suck.” During the forum, he admitted that there was an elitist vein running through the Democratic Party, and that many rust belt voters supported Donald Trump because their harsh economic reality. But the constructive conversation turned dark at the end of the program when radical progressive Michael Moore begged congressional Democrats to obstruct Republicans at every turn.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is under enormous pressure from the Left to crack down on “fake news” on the social-media giant. Zuckerberg is well-advised to run as far as he can from the News Police.

In a recent note on Facebook, Zuckerberg claimed he wanted to err “on the side of letting people share whatever they want whenever possible....We do not want to be arbiters of truth ourselves, but instead  rely on our community and trusted third parties.” The hard left, beginning with President Obama, wants to be that “community,” that supposedly disinterested “third party.”

While everyone can agree safety is important, ABC's The Middle shows us how the federal government likes to overcomplicate even the smallest of workplace incidents.

Despite recent revelations that the Pentagon may have been hiding $125 billion in wasteful spending, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all knocked President-Elect Donald Trump Tuesday for tweeting his disapproval of the $4 billion price tag of two new presidential aircraft. “President-Elect Donald Trump's sparking a new controversy over Air Force One after once again, taking to social media to criticize an American business,” whined fill-in Anchor Tamron Hall on NBC Nightly News. But each one of them reported a different price tag for the project.

In this week’s edition of the liberal media normalizing the abhorrent “alt-right” and neo-Nazi movement led by Richard Spencer, CNN dedicated 36 minutes and 46 seconds over the course of 24 hours on Monday and Tuesday to previewing a Spencer speech at Texas A&M University despite correctly emphasizing he has a “hate-filled mission.”

During Monday night's edition of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable television channel, host Trevor Noah slammed Donald Trump for making “outlandish” comments on the Twitter website, but the comedian saved his harshest criticisms for the GOP president-elect's “enablers” who worry that Trump is being “too casual with the highest office in the land.”

“If you're one of those people who thought Trump would magically give up Twitter once he was elected, think again because this weekend he gave us a definitive answer, and this is real,” Noah said at the beginning of the segment.
