Politicizing sports -- it’s not just for ESPN anymore! No longer seeing sports as a respite from politics, the New York Times has joined the game of pestering and trying to pin down athletes suspected of secret anti-Trump tendencies, while celebrating supporters of illegal immigrants and Black Lives Matter protests: "Of the 56 players polled, 50 -- or 89.3 percent -- said they would play golf with Trump if asked....The results were hardly surprising. The clubhouses at PGA Tour stops have long trended Republican, and the sport’s target demographic -- rich, mostly white men -- is far different from the women, minorities, immigrants and Muslims who have at times been the most offended by the president’s statements and positions."

Almost fifteen years ago, South Park paid tribute to a trailblazing animated TV series by calling an episode “The Simpsons Already Did It.” According to Columbia Journalism Review columnist Joel Simon, regardless of the current hubbub over President Trump’s media-bashing, several “Latin American populist” heads of state, including the late Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez, already did it, or something a lot like it, long before Trump dubbed certain MSM outlets “the enemy of the people,” a description he reaffirmed Friday morning in his speech at CPAC.

If there's any doubt that the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight “doesn't take prisoners” when interviewing liberal guests during his weeknight Fox News Channel program, his volatile exchange on Thursday with Zac Petkanas, a senior advisor for the Democratic National Committee, should have settled that question for good.

The topic was gender identity, and Petkanas had slammed President Donald Trump and his administration as “monsters” in a tweet earlier that day for removing a policy administered by his predecessor one year ago regarding transgender children. In response, Carlson countered that people “get to decide your gender with no biological anchor to sex anymore.”

During a report for Friday’s NBC Today, rural Wisconsin Trump supporters repeatedly frustrated attempts by political analyst Nicolle Wallace to get them to criticize President Trump. The flummoxed journalist noted: “On this farm, the President gets plenty of pasture, even for the controversial travel ban.”

Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Last Word on MSNBC, Daily Beast foreign editor and MSNBC political commentator Christopher Dickey aimed snide name-calling at White House advisor Steve Bannon. After calling him a "snob," the liberal commentator also remarked that he looks like a "slob" and a "dirty old man," as he went along with host Lawrence O'Donnell's suggestion that the Donald Trump advisor looks homeless. O'Donnell described Bannon as looking like he "slept in the subway last night" as he wondered how people in France view the Donald Trump advisor: "So what do they think when they see the guy who looks like he slept in the subway last night and he's the one who's talking to the President?"

Friday on the View, the panel talked about the Oscars and whether or not it was a good idea to make a political speech from the stage. Liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin pounced on the notion, saying the Oscars was the opportune moment for actors to be political, while Jedediah Bila blasted the move as alienating viewers with different beliefs.

The perpetually outraged Brian Stelter is outraged yet again. After Donald Trump lambasted CNN and the “fake news media” at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Friday, Stelter fumed, “The demagoguery continues. This was all about us versus them. I think we heard it in almost every sentence. Us versus them.”

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — Speaking to a boisterous, full-capacity crowd at the 2017 edition of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), President Donald Trump delivered all-encompassing remarks that included blistering attacks on the “fake news media,” incorrect polling, anonymous sources, and “the Clinton News Network” of CNN.

CBS This Morning’s Gayle King on Friday reveled in Tom Cotton being booed at a town hall meeting this week. Talking to the Senator, she pressed for all the details: “Senator Cotton is joining us now at the table with his screams of 'do your jobs' still fresh in your ears I'm sure. What was that like for you?”

On Thursday, The New York Times launched a new marketing campaign by releasing a TV ad set to air during Sunday’s Academy Awards with the tag line, “The truth is more important than ever,” seemingly taking a jab at President Donald Trump. Given the paper’s blatant liberal bias and willingness to report fake news stories, the notion that the Times is the arbiter of the “truth” is laughable.

Just how degraded is the language we use in public discourse? Consider: an anchor on a major news network didn’t bat an eye Friday when a guest claimed it is a “civil rights issue” when a fraction of a percent of students don’t want to pee the way nature intended.

Donald Trump’s administration has been slammed with at least one “fake news” story a day for the last 33 days. That, according to a new list compiled by The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard. In Friday’s edition of his “Washington Secrets” column Bedard reported “President Trump’s claim that he’s been the subject of false and ‘fake news’ stories has been mocked by an eye-rolling media, but a Secrets analysis of Trump coverage reveals that Team Trump have been hit with an average of one false, distorted or denied story a day. Starting on the eve of Inauguration Day, there have been at least 33 often widely reported false stories about the president and his team.”

If your daughter is uncomfortable with seeing male genitals while undressing in the school locker room, that’s the fault of her ‘intolerant’ parents, said CNN anchor Chris Cuomo Thursday. After President Trump reversed an Obama order Wednesday, that forced schools to allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom and locker room they wished, the media went nuts, decrying the reversal as “cruel” discrimination. New Day anchor Chris Cuomo went on a Twitter tirade Thursday, arguing with conservatives over the bathroom order, even blaming parents for being “intolerant” because they want their daughters to change in female-only locker rooms at school.

Men are big, mean Neanderthals who degrade women and won’t even let them stand up and talk. First came the U.S. Senate President Neanderthal Mitch McConnell. And now Jameis Winston, quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is the latest Neanderthal to be outed by the left-stream media.

In June, the City of Philadelphia, in what was hailed as a "historic moment for public health," passed a deliberately misnamed 1.5-cent per ounce "soda tax." What anyone with a lick of sense could have predicted would happen is happening, and the national press is mostly ignoring the tragic results.
