Economist and former speechwriter for Richard Nixon, Ben Stein, appeared on CNN Newsroom last Saturday, where he slammed the media for making Trump a “punching bag” and “looking for a scandal” from the president on a daily basis. Stein told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “I don't blame him for being furious at [the media].” Stein noted, “I think he's got a lot of company."

In an exclusive interview with George W. Bush on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer repeatedly urged the former president to criticize current President Trump’s first month in office. Lauer began the exchange by demanding: “You took office in 2001 after an extremely contentious election, controversial end to that, the Supreme Court decided it, the nation was incredibly divided. How would you compare the divisions we faced then to what we’re living through right now?”

The journalists on ABC, CBS and NBC on Sunday couldn’t quite agree how to spin new Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez. Is he “moderate,” “establishment” or really progressive? Despite having what Mother Jones magazine called “stalwart progressive” credentials, Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley described, “Former Labor secretary Tom Perez is the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee... His election is seen as a win for the moderate wing of the party.”

Following his latest combative segment on transgender people by smearing conservatives as 
“nutz” [sic] with intolerant views that will increase suicide rates, CNN’s New Day co-host Chris Cuomo threw a mini-fissy fit on Twitter Monday morning in the name of “tolerance

This post goes straight into the "Just When You Didn't Think They Could Sink Any Lower (But They Always Manage)" file. At Slate.com on Thursday, staff writer Isaac Chotiner took the occasion of Alan Colmes's death only hours earlier to criticize him as a "buffoon and patsy," and as "Fox News’ Original Liberal Weakling."

On Monday's New Day, liberal CNN co-host Chris Cuomo got into a heated debate with conservative CNN political commentator and talk radio host Ben Ferguson over the issue of a high school girl who identifies as a boy who was barred from wrestling with boys and so chose to wrestle girls instead. As the debate shifted to the issue of transgender bathroom policy, Cuomo not only accused conservatives of "scarring" transgenders and causing an increase in suicide by not allowing them to do what they choose to do, but he also mocked those who fear the possibility of girls having "genitals waved in their face" by men intruding into women's restrooms.

The Monday morning following the Oscars on ABC was filled with excited reports on the biggest Hollywood awards show of the year. But over on ABC’s Good Morning America, the news team seemed just as excited about the anti-Trump tone of the night.

When a major social issues brouhaha recently erupted in Texas, it was all too predictable that Big Media would push hard in support of its LGBT activist friends. The big T – for transgender – in this case.

It was the most promising start to a report on the Oscars ceremony that I’ve read: “Our culture is too frazzled and fried and exhausted for this kind of nonsense!” Had Washington Post TV Critic Hank Stuever stopped there, in sort of a mic-drop for taste and commonsense, he’d be a legend. But it turns out he was concerned with the specific nonsense of some award confusion, not the overall nonsense of the entire embarrassing Oscars spectacle.

Talk about softball pitching. CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter interviewed New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Sunday, and set him up to boast that the Times has never been hotter and that President Trump hates them because he has this "dangerous" tendency to hate newspapers who hold him accountable.

Stelter didn't point out that the Times endorsed Hillary Clinton as an excellent choice and added parenthetically "(We will explain in a subsequent editorial why we believe Mr. Trump to be the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.)"

At CPAC on Friday, Nigel Farage, a key leader of the "Leave" campaign which resulted in UK voters choosing in June 2016 to leave the European Union, reminded attendees and the world of something that the U.S. press has virtually failed to acknowledge: that then-U.S. President Obama was instrumental in his effort's success. Two months before the vote, Obama, in a UK speech, promised that a "Leave" victory would move the UK "to the back of the queue" in future trade negotiations — after which polling, which had shown "Remain" with a big lead, moved into a dead heat.

Having finally watched an episode of HBO’s Girls, I can now honestly say how inane, self-righteous, raunchy, and, quite honestly, stupid the show is first-hand. This is not something I say proudly, especially when it regards a topic something that should never be covered by Lena Dunham: women’s accusations of rape.

The second episode of this season of Billions, “Dead Cat Bounce,” had Showtime’s much praised gender non-conforming star begin transitioning to the forefront of the show. Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon), Axe Capital’s new intern with exceptional financial prowess, makes a game-changing discovery regarding a business competitor. Before reporting the findings to the CEO, Taylor lists “their” preferred pronouns in an introduction.

The 89th Academy Awards, aka The Oscars, was broadcast by ABC live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, hosted by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. As with other award shows of late, politics reared its ugly liberal head and showed us exactly why Hollywood is often referred to derisively as "La La Land."

Celebs weren't the only ones getting political through Oscars evening -- journalists and liberal organizations did too.
