According to Matt Lauer, the murderous fictional president portrayed by Kevin Spacey on the Netflix series  House of Cards is “tame” in comparison to Donald Trump’s presidency. Interviewing the actor on Wednesday’s NBC Today, Lauer wondered: “...did you ever imagine that there would come a time in real-life politics that would make the plot lines of your show seem tame?”

As if we needed it, given their reporters' conduct during the past two years, here's more evidence that the Associated Press is now a full-fledged participant in the anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-Republican Party "resistance." A virulently anti-Trump freelance reporter doing work for the AP, which is a supposed to be a wire service finding and reporting news as it occurs, snuck into a closed New Hampshire Republican Party gathering and presented an unbylined report which, per others who were there and other available evidence, was highly inaccurate.

When it’s left-wing Vox, every incident is about agenda -- sometimes with hilarious results.

Soon after an impaired driver killed an 18-year-old-girl in Times Square May 18, Vox writer German Lopez wrote a think piece condemning drunken driving and criticizing the media for disproportionately covering terrorism. Lopez has a long history of being pro-marijuana, so attacking alcohol fit his pattern.

Donald Trump’s first year in office isn’t even half over but the liberal media is ready to bury it. Journalists went crazy over the James Comey dismissal with constant comparisons to Watergate.  CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin called it “A grotesque abuse of power...the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies.” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews opined that the move had a “whiff of fascism.” His colleague Mika Brezezinski went as far as to declare the Trump administration “over.” 

The following is a compilation of the worst media outbursts from the past few weeks:

The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha took the liberal media to task Tuesday night, most notably CNN and MSNBC, for putting off the Manchester terror attack to squeeze in more time for Trump and Russia. “And look, there are some numbers around this that are just stunning. 105 minutes during the 7:00 P.M. hour,” he said during his appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. “This according to [a Media Research Center] study, was spent on Trump and Russia on CNN and MSNBC. Just 50 minutes [for the attack].”

It was big news when Roger Ailes died. Everyone in his industry acknowledged that a serious, even transcendent force in American media and politics had passed away. Without Fox News over these last 20 years, the shape of American politics would be far different. A heretofore unanimously liberal media suddenly had a counter-weight, and much to their horror, this uppity network soon has surpassed all of its rivals in cable news -- combined. The era of unchallenged liberal enlightenment was over.  Roger was accused of making American dumber, angrier, and more bigoted. But one critic really stretched reality past the breaking point: Monica Lewinsky.

On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was in tip-top shape when it comes to spouting off wacky quotes, suggesting print journalists are “heroes,” John Brennan is a “patriot,” and admitting he had no clue who Ariana Grande was before Monday night.

On Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan appeared before a Senate committee to testify on what he knew of the allegations that members of Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with the Russians. In Brennan’s statements, he explained how the investigation got started. For MSNBC’s spotty political historian, Katy Tur, this meant that someone in Obama administration was to blame for not leaking to the press so they could smear Trump before the election. But for one Obama lackey that blames rest on the media’s shoulders.

Openly advocating for the transgender movement, media across the nation are hoping powerful sports organizations will use the threat of boycotts to defeat the bathroom bill now before the Texas Legislature. Texas lefties do not have the votes to stop the bill, so their only remaining hope is the Big Sports triumvirate of the NFL, NBA and NCAA threatening the state with the removal of major revenue-generating competitions.

In the midst of a terror attack and President Trump’s travels abroad, the fun-filled cast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe still found the time to bash the President’s new budget on Tuesday.  Meeting with Senator McCaskill of Missouri they discussed at length the horror that would ensue were the budget to be brought into existence. Scarborough lamented the ‘savage’ cuts to different government programs before discussing the fate of McCaskill’s constituents,“Rural hospitals will be obliterated by these budgets that will not only severely curtail health care for Americans in rural America, but also as you were just saying, will also slash jobs from those communities, in communities that can't afford more job loss.”

The horrific terrorist attack against young concert-goers in Manchester, England. Newsweek magazine chose to highlight Conor Gaffey’s report from the city in its daily email. But in all-too-common pattern among the liberal press after an Islamic terrorist attack, Gaffey quickly changed the subject, skipping ahead of concern for the victims of Islamic terrorism straight to left-wing handwringing about hypothetical Islamophobia, even bringing Brexit into the discussion. “Muslims in Manchester Fear Reprisals as ISIS Claims Responsibility for Concert Attack."

The antagonism between the “mainstream media” and the Trump administration reached a new low last week when the Associated Press hired a “freelancer” -- who turned out to be “a hardcore left-wing activist” -- to attend a “closed press” fund-raiser for the GOP in New Hampshire and falsely report on the event.

Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos came under fire for bias, Tuesday, but for his other company. At an Amazon shareholder meeting, he was pressed on that organization’s political stances. Bezos defended, “It’s very important that Amazon, in my opinion, not oppose or favor any presidential candidate or elected official, that’s not our job. Instead, The right thing for us is to take a very measured issue-by-issue approach.”

When the term “abortionist” comes up in conversation, does the word “hero” usually follow?

That’s the light in which the  LA Times decided to tell Willie Parker’s story, in a piece about his acceptance of an award from a pro-choice women’s group.
