Harvey Weinstein isn’t one to shy away from publicity, but his recent criticism of an R rating from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) on his company’s new movie 3 Generations isn’t a publicity stunt, or so he claims.

3 Generations tells the story of a teenage girl, played by Elle Fanning, who wants to transition into a boy, who must first find her father to get permission for the procedure.

On Friday’s Access Hollywood, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King responded to the fact that she had recently vacationed in Tahiti with, among others, the Obama family, pathetically claiming that it was “not a political statement” and no big deal since her “friends” are out of the White House.

The front page of Saturday’s Washington Post told the tale about the war on Fox News. It wasn’t about accusers getting a payout. It was about damaging the network by taking down its top star. The Post headline was “’'Mission was to bring down Bill O’Reilly’.”

When MSNBC contributor and Daily Beast foreign editor Christopher Dickey appears to fill in MSNBC viewers on European politics, it's generally not long before his contempt for conservatives is made obvious. On Saturday's MSNBC Live, Dickey tagged right-wing French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen as a "crypto-fascist" and recalled that the French public believe President Donald Trump is "nuts." By contrast, Dickey fawned over "progressive" candidate Emmanuel Macron as an "Obama-like" "moderate" who was "thoughtful" enough not to "try to capitalize" on the most recent terrorist attack in Paris.

As Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted on Friday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow's obsession with the money raised for President Donald Trump's inauguration went into overdrive the previous evening. During the same show, Maddow combined that obsession with another one shared by most of the news media — the absolute necessity to avoid blaming Venezuela's dire economic circumstances on its Bolivarian socialist form of government and its de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro — to come up with the most ridiculous reason imaginable as to why civil order in Venezuela has broken down.

There could not be a better example of liberal media double standards than the kerfuffle over former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin posing in front of Hillary Clinton’s White House portrait (as First Lady) with rock stars Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. The ladies of The View had their knickers in a knot.

NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on the final edition of Fox News’s The Factor, Friday, to slam journalists as being in a “festival of hate” during Donald Trump’s first few months. Talking to guest host Greg Gutfeld, he quipped of first 100 days: “It’s an artificial measuring stick and as usual we can expect the media to take that stick and beat Trump over the head with it.”

The man behind SNL's President Obama impersonation reveals the show's disinterest in Barack-based gags. Comedian Jay Pharoah’s impression of President Barack Obama was spot on. Too bad so few people noticed. Pharoah took the Obama impersonation baton from former “Saturday Night Live” star Fred Armisen. The black comedian had years to establish his Obama as pop culture’s definitive take on the Commander in Chief.

Fox News took Bill O’Reilly off the air after a heavy campaign to fire him led by CNN’s media unit and The New York Times. If all the charges of sexual harassment are true, his case is indefensible. That said, it’s time for his media critics to stand down. They are guilty of rank hypocrisy.

These same media outlets despised the idea that Donald Trump would drag Bill Clinton’s sexual harassment lawsuits into the presidential campaign. The Times even called it a "sexist" attack on Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton has just come off the most humiliating political defeat in the memory of most Americans. Despite the unrelenting hype for her candidacy and the absolutely certainty among the mainstream media that she would win the 2016 presidential election...she lost. Unfortunately the media seems unable to quit with the Clinton hype since now they are going overboard in promoting Chelsea Clinton much to the annoyance of many. Even Vanity Fair, hardly a font of conservative views, is getting fed up with the continuous avalanche of Chelsea hype in the media.

Wanna get away, Jason Stallman, New York Times sports editor? Hopefully you can sneak out of town after your colossal blunder. If you’re lucky, you could get a first-class seat on a United flight without getting bumped. And hopefully they’ll serve you some humble pie!

People magazine is no stranger to being used to rehabilitate liberals -- even when it sounds hopeless. (Case in point: Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Weiner). In the May 1 People they try to rehabilitate disgraced CBS anchorman Dan Rather, now hailed by liberals as an anti-Trump crusader. Online, the headline oozed: "Inside Dan Rather’s Unexpected Comeback 11 Years After CBS Exit: ‘I Was Aching to Do Something'."

A little over a month since her overhyped non-scandal involving President Trump’s tax returns, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow took to her show Thursday night to invent a controversy involving "missing" Trump inauguration funds. “We raised a question about $107 million that appears to be sloshing around right now somewhere inside the Trump administration, with nobody accounting for it,” she claimed near the top of the show. Her claim that money was “sloshing around” somewhere was based solely on her criticism of the inauguration being nowhere near as great as President Obama’s.

Amanda Taub’s “Interpreter” piece on the upcoming election in France, in Friday’s New York Times was snottily headlined “A Small French Town Infused With Us-vs.-Them Politics.” That town, Frejus, was no doubt also infused with current events, as suggested by the Times’ own lead story on Friday: “Gunman In Paris Shoots Officer; Terrorism Seen.” Taub managed to completely ignore that issue in favor of condescending theories about France’s “us and them” ethnocentrism, making Taub’s think piece chiding the town’s punitive politics (doubtless written before the attack) look both out of date and sanctimoniously naïve.

USA Today correspondent Heidi Przybyla continued the liberal spin about the Georgia congressional special election into Friday’s print edition, still emphasizing that the non-win by Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff represented doom for Republicans in the form of losing the House in the 2018 midterms.
