While the networks mentioned the investment agreements President Donald Trump signed with Saudi Arabia, they failed to explain the positive economic impact.

Saudi Arabia and U.S. based-companies, including Lockheed Martin, General Electric and Honeywell International, agreed to “potential investments valued at $300 billion,” Wall Street Journal reporter Margherita Stancati wrote. The agreement was part of Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia on May 21.

19 people are confirmed dead and dozens more injured, after a suicide bomber set off a bomb in a concert arena late Monday night in Manchester, England. Even more sickening is the fact that thousands of young children and teens were at this concert. Despite the horrific nature and impact, ABC was eager to downplay the motive behind the deadly attack. In fact, ABC was more worried about the perpetrators than the victims, warning that this could provoke an “anti-Islamic backlash” across Europe

While the scene in England’s Manchester Arena was still a crime scene following Tuesday night’s terror attack, frequent MSNBC guest, The Atlantic writer, and former Bush administration official David Frum thought it was crucial to tie the bombing to President Trump’s intelligence leak.

By and large, the news media remained calm, collected, and hesitant to speculate on Tuesday night following the terrorist attack in Manchester, England at the Ariana Grande concert. That being said, the evening was not without notable comments, including some from MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes.

TBS’s Angie Tribeca often takes a turn for the ridiculous when it comes to their plots, but the most recent episode seemed more willing to go for brutal when it came to oil tycoons. Namely, while murderers can be awful, the real monsters are oil moguls.

The finale to The CW's Supergirl was thankfully focused more on action than politics despite what its title "Nevertheless, She Persisted" would have us believe. However, the final episode of the politically-charged second season still could not avoid a few glaring missteps as it flies off into the summer.

Early Monday evening as details of a loud explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester England were first rolling in, something obviously very wrong as MSNBC’s chyron was reporting “at least 20 dead.” But for the network’s Law Enforcement Analyst Jim Cavanaugh on Hardball, the terrifying noise could have been anything, including a very loud balloon popping as he told host Chris Matthews.

When it comes to "news" which might discredit Donald Trump or a member of his family, the modus operandi for too many in the press is, "Tweet and report first, ask questions later (if at all)." On Sunday, several media members couldn't resist falsely tweeting that Ivanka Trump will somehow control $100 million pledged by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to a World Bank fund for women entrepreneurs, thus dishonestly opening the door to utterly false parallels to the Clinton family-controlled Clinton Foundation.

Not long before two of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were set to begin broadcasting their evening news programs on Monday, an apparent explosion or series of explosions rocked a concert arena in Manchester, England. Both ABC and CBS start their programs just after 6:30 PM, but only CBS managed to fit the terrible breaking news into their show while it was in progress. But ABC did find time to mention that Elvis Presley’s abandoned 30-years-old jets was up for sale.

Appearing as a guest on Monday's At This Hour with Kate Bolduan, CNN International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour predictably found the current right-leaning Israeli government to be "very far right" as she discussed the difficulty for President Donald Trump to successfully negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The CNN correspondent also failed to give any label to the Hamas terrorist group which rules the Gaza Strip as she vaguely informed viewers that the Palestinian Authority is "embroiled in a whole Hamas side of the equation."

In the 21st century, no sports free agents have been covered more than LeBron James, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Kevin Durant and ... Colin Kaepernick. The first four are in or headed for their respective Hall of Fame. Kaepernick, a free agent quarterback trying to help Black Lives Matter move the ball forward, gets a ton of press only because left-wing media are using him to advance their own political beliefs.

On U.S. Spanish-language media, viewers are now being told that Trump’s policy of enforcing the nation’s immigration laws amounts to ‘ethnic cleansing’.

As of now, straight men aren’t accused of homophobia for their lack of interest in dating other men. But straight men who aren’t interested in transgender women? They’re transphobic. When 30-year-old fireman Bryce Powers, a contestant on The Bachelorette, answered a question about his biggest date fear, he sparked a firestorm by responding: “The chick is actually a dude.” Naturally, the PC police had no sympathy for Powers, who had quite the media blaze to put out.
