Nearly a month after Trump won the election, the media is still whining. On Monday, The Washington Post published one disaffected woman’s Chicken Little story in their Dating and Relationships section where she essentially blames Donald Trump for ruining her love life. In the self-indulgent sob story, writer Stephanie Land whines that Trump’s election made her lose all hope for finding a man she could trust in this newly “precarious” world. “I felt sick to my stomach,” Land moaned, when she learned the news. “I am not the optimistic person I was...wearing a t-shirt with ‘Nasty Woman’ written inside a red heart,” she stated.

Liberal post-election tears have really been delicious, but this is just getting silly. On December 5, The Washington Post’s Stephanie Land wrote a completely serious, non-satirical article titled, “Trump’s Election Stole My Desire to Look for a Partner.” Before the election, she had been searching for a “supportive” partner to quench her loneliness and help raise her two kids.

Now that Fidel Castro is dead, be on the lookout for Hollywood as they try to cash in on the life and death of the murdering, ruthless Cuban dictator.
Prior to his death, a movie had been in the works about the real-life girlfriend of Castro, Marita Lorenz, with Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence playing the lead role. Lorenz had begun an affair with the dictator at the age of 19, later left Cuba to join an anti-communist movement, and was then recruited by the CIA in an attempt to assassinate her former lover, only to inform him of her plans. The movie is looking at a late 2017 release date.

No review of the reactions of leftists and the establishment press (but I repeat myself) to the death of Fidel Castro would be complete without seeing what the wonderful, caring people at Black Lives Matter wrote after the Cuban dictator died.
BLM's reaction is posted at a website called Medium.com. Since that post doesn't link elsewhere, it was possible to hope that the content there doesn't officially reflect the group's views. Alas, that isn't so. The press's failure to mention BLM's sanctioned outrageous and offensive reaction to Castro's death, as well as its failure to even try to get comments from Democrats who would (hopefully, but who knows any more?) denounce and renounce the poison contained therein, up to and including President Barack Obama, is sadly typical and irresponsible.

Before CBS offers America a primetime Oprah Winfrey interview with Michelle Obama -- an Obama supporter still promoting the Obamas and their legacy -- CNN is offering another version: Obama adviser Fareed Zakaria interviewing Barack Obama for a two-hour primetime special called The Legacy of Barack Obama. Conservatives and Republicans would have a very negative take on that title -- so CNN is skipping over all of them. The only viewpoint allowed is that Obama's two terms "may be among the most consequential in history."

After Donald Trump chose former presidential candidate Ben Carson to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), journalists ridiculed the choice, mocked Carson’s beliefs and labeled him a “scammer.” Squawk Box co-anchor Joe Kernen anticipated the liberal media reaction on Dec. 5, saying, "Let's see, he's not a billionaire, so how's the mainstream media going to trash him? He's a -- he's just a loyalist. He's a doctor. Doesn't know anything about housing."

The liberal media was still up in arms Monday night over President-Elect Donald Trump accepting a congratulatory phone call from the president of the island of Taiwan. “Already, Trump has caused quite a stir on the world stage,” whined ABC’s Jon Karl on World News Tonight, “Ruffling China’s feathers by talking to the president Taiwan.” While chastising the president-elect for his phone call and selected defense tweets, they failed to mention the nearly two billion dollars in arms sales to Taiwan under President Barack Obama.

Monday's New Day on CNN ran a pre-recorded report by correspondent Kyung Lah in which she highlighted two Japanese-American women who suffered through living in internment camps during World War II, and touted their concerns that Donald Trump "could make a dark moment in history a reality again," this time targeting Muslims.

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."

New on December 5: On an episode of Netflix’s Chelsea, which debuted the day after President-elect Donald Trump fulfilled a campaign promise the save jobs at Carrier, actress Sally Field declared of Trump: “There is no evidence that he can do one single thing that he says he’s going to do, not one single thing.”

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo apparently isn’t fond of his MSNBC rivals. The New Day anchor tweeted his unhappiness over Morning Joe's access to the President-elect, complaining, “They have always been boosters. Things turned south when Trump froze them out but coverage always stilted. They are transition spokesmen now.”

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.
