Another actress supporting Planned Parenthood? Not surprising. But did the actress miss the memo when she posed with her newborn infant to support the institution? Amber Tamblyn, best known for her role in The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, has recently attempted to follow her female colleagues in Hollywood by reinventing herself as an activist, but her latest effort to join the trend seems to have some hidden irony to it.


The snide journalists at CBS on Tuesday seem to wonder why Republicans are intentionally hurting the gullible voters who support them. The hosts of CBS This Morning talked to Shannon Pettypiece of Bloomberg about the Senate GOP’s plan to repeal ObamaCare. At one point, co-host Charlie Rose blundered, “How do [Republicans] justify the fact that it will hurt the people that supported them most enthusiastically during the election?”     


The broadcast networks routinely cover so-called “hate” crimes, but when conservative nonprofits were smeared as hate groups, they said nothing. The Associated Press (AP) reported on June 8, nonprofit-tracking organization Guidestar had added “hate group” tags to 46 nonprofit groups’ profiles including The Family Research Council (FRC) and The American Family Association.


The cast of Morning Joe descended even deeper into their increasingly concerning case of Trump derangement syndrome Tuesday morning. Joe Scarborough referred to Republicans as “jackasses” while talking about health care. Steve Rattner joined in as he lamented how Trump’s future tax plan “is just for the rich.” Finally, Mika Brzezinski decried the “shiny objects” put into the media cycle by Trump and condemned the President’s “random” and “out-of-control” tweets about Barack Obama.


During a panel discussion in the 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle argued that the White House warning of the Syrian regime possibly preparing to launch another chemical weapons attack against its own people was nothing more that a “political move” to distract people from the Republican health care bill.


The secret-taping squad at Project Veritas are making sure CNN has a bad public-relations week. On the heels of three journalists resigning over an unsubstantiated online report, CNN Health producer John Bonifield is caught on tape admitting that CNN is producing news for liberals, and that talking about “cutesy little ethics” is “adorable” when cable news is a “business.”

The Hollywood Reporter is relaying CNN's response:  It will "not be releasing a statement" about the video, and "the network is not making a big deal about the video, which is seen by some internally as just a producer expressing his opinion about the network's coverage, rather than revealing a bias for or against the president." 


The left has its week all planned out. There’s Meat Free Mondays, Throwback Thursdays, and of course, Trump Free Tuesdays. In a statement put out on Monday, June 26, the editorial team of Salon announced that for one whole day, they would neither publish the POTUS’s picture or his name. The reason why? “We’re sick of him. Everybody is, including the people who voted for him and still support him. That might not be a metaphor either.”


I used to be a brand ambassador for The View. It was beyond frustrating to see the way Elizabeth Hasselbeck was treated on the show and in the press. She didn’t stand a chance with 4-5 staunchly liberal women there to bully her whenever she presented a conservative opinion. Enter Heather Flynn-Kellogg (Fiona Gubbelman) on VH1’s Daytime Divas.


A Media Research Center study of every broadcast network evening newscast in the five weeks since the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller on May 17 found a whopping 353 minutes of airtime devoted to the Russia probe, or 55 percent of all coverage of the Trump presidency during those weeks. The study also found one-third (34%) of the networks’ Russia coverage was based on anonymous sources, some of which later proved erroneous.


When the Supreme Court of the United States released its latest batch of rulings on Monday, most eyes were on the court allowing partial implementation of the President’s travel ban on six Middle Eastern countries. The Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent a lot of time hyper focusing on that ruling and the CBO report of the Senate health care bill. There was also a big win for religious liberty that got omitted from the reports of both ABC and CBS, while NBC simply tacked it onto the end of their travel ban report.


The latest episode in the Trump administration's long-running legal battle to impose a temporary ban on travel from several nations concluded on Monday. Its result, as described by National Review's David French, was that "in a per curiam ruling, the Supreme Court restored the vast majority of the Trump administration’s temporary travel ban — including the temporary ban on refugee entry." Much of the establishment press is nevertheless describing this major Trump administration legal victory as "partial" and "limited." Most reports are also failing to note that the ruling was unanimous.


As News One Now managing editor and former CNN contributor Roland Martin appeared as a guest on Sunday's The Point with Ari Melber on MSNBC, during a discussion of black suspects being shot and killed by police officers, the liberal commentator seemed unaware that more whites than blacks are killed by police as he declared that "it's going to have to take a series of white Americans shot and killed in a similar fashion for America to deal with this issue."

 


AMC’s Preacher returned for a second season this week, and it didn’t waste a moment to get back to the gory, irreverent, and overblown show that people know and apparently love. Yes, the season opener proves we are in for more of the same, courtesy of another awful depiction of religion.


On Thursday evening, CNN.com ran a story by reporter Thomas Frank which, according to a now-posted Editor's Note, connected "Anthony Scaramucci with (congressional) investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund." The Editor's Note tells the network's readers: "That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted." Further, "Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci." Then, in a Monday evening bombshell, Fox News's Howard Kurtz reported that "Three journalists (have) quit CNN in fallout from (the) retracted Russia story" — although it's possible they may have resigned instead of getting fired. What in the world happened?


On Monday, the often inaccurate Congressional Budget Office released its report with the latest analysis of the health care bill recently released by Senate Republicans. First impressions: There was a lot for the liberal media to make hay with. In addition to running with the misleading figure of the number of uninsured, ABC and NBC both continued to push the fake news story of there being massive cuts to Medicaid in the bill during their evening broadcasts. That’s despite the fact that the CBO report itself disproves their lie.
