As traditional media continue to disparage President-elect Donald Trump’s every move, MRC Vice President for Business and Culture Dan Gainor mocked the hate fest. “The American media have so lost their moorings since the post-election. They’re even worse than they were before the election,” he argued. Gainor sat down with Trish Regan on Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report on December 5 to talk about how the major media want “to depict everything he’s [Trump] doing as crazy.” While Regan accused the media of “overreacting,” Gainor explained that not only do they dislike that Trump is president, but “they hate his use of Twitter as well.”

Filling in for MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Monday, NBC national correspondent Peter Alexander wrung his hands over President-elect Donald Trump using social media to circumvent the liberal media: “...one of the real challenges here with social media is that Donald Trump can spew an idea that millions of people voted illegally and ultimately not be pressed to defend such a thing. We just talked about fake news, this sort of stuff propels a lot of people to believe it.”

On Monday's CNN Newsroom, The Daily Beast's Dean Obeidallah bewailed the apparent power of "fake news," particularly after the Sunday shooting at a Washington, D.C. restaurant at the center of the "Pizzagate" issue. Obeidallah proposed a hypothetical scenario: "I wonder if a Muslim guy went to a pizza place with a gun...how that would have went down — I think much worse." The liberal pundit later claimed that "Donald Trump...is the great purveyor of fake news," and that "good people [are] misinformed; and in this case, this man was radicalized online. This is no different than ISIS radicalizing someone."

In another case of a journalist completely lacking self awareness, NBC Today anchor Savannah Guthrie admitted to The Hollywood Reporter that she tried “really hard” to stay unbiased in her job. But not before slamming viewers who didn’t share her own opinions as “biased.” “I try really hard to stay neutral,” she said. “But often that's not what you're finding on social media. You're finding people who are very opinionated and detect bias in anyone who does not share that opinion,” Guthrie added.

A very smug John Dickerson asserted on Sunday's Face The Nation that Donald Trump was just flat out wrong in his assertion that millions of people voted illegally in California. In fact, Dickerson tried but failed to get incoming White House Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus to agree with him that Trump is somehow lying about this matter. Nice try, John, but Priebus wasn't biting. After Reince took the very reasonable position that we just don't know how many people voted illegally in the last election, Dickerson proceeded to recite the standard mainstream media dogma on this matter:
