Well, this is certainly something to put in the “are you kidding me” category. The director, tutors, and staff of the University of Washington-Tacoma’s Writing Center have posted what they call an “anti-racist” poster, insisting that American grammar is in fact “racist” and an “unjust language structure,” promising to prioritize rhetoric over “grammatical correctness.”

Wednesday on Morning Joe, the discussion centered around immigration policies and deportation. Host Joe Scarborough began the segment righteously stating why illegal immigration is wrong and that the media has a “blind spot” in seeing where most Americans stand on the issue. Scarborough made this point first to political analyst Mark Halperin:“So Mark, you have said this is the biggest disconnect between red state America and blue state America. I agree. My only caveat to that is I think there are a lot of people in blue state America that also think, wait, they are here illegally? What is wrong with the government deporting them? I know that is not popular in this area code.”

During an interview with Matt Wilstein of The Daily Beast website, Trevor Noah -- host of The Daily Show -- declared that he doubts Donald Trump “has the balls to go on a show where people don't like him.” Wilstein noted that even after the Republican president became the occupant of the White House a month ago, the liberal comedian “is still here, still tearing into Trump four nights a week and delivering the program's highest monthly ratings since his debut in October of 2015, an average of 1.4 million viewers a night in January.”

The double standard continues, folks. On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin seemed dismayed and testy when it came to questioning whether or not the attendees at solid congressional Republican town halls are liberal protesters, bemoaning the idea as “dangerous” rhetoric to be articulating.  Of course, NewsBusters readers will find this story to be quite humorous after recalling how this same network dismissed conservatives at town halls in 2009 and 2010 as astroturf or paid brown shirts.

On Wednesday, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning both hailed liberal protesters “sounding off” at congressional town hall meetings “to put the breaks on President Trump's agenda” and giving Republican lawmakers an “earful.” In 2009, the same networks warned similar public meetings were “getting out of hand” when “unruly” Tea Party demonstrators spoke out against the Obama administration.

Authorities ordered the temporary evacuation of almost 200,000 people living near the Oroville Dam in California after spillway damage and erosion caused fear of death and devastation.

However, as The Mercury News reported Feb. 12, this spillway erosion might never have happened if federal and state officials heeded 2005 warnings and reinforced the emergency spillway with concrete.

You just can’t win at USA Today. The paper blasted the President on Wednesday with this headline: “Trump too late on hate, critics say.” This came a day after the author of the article appeared on MSNBC to say that anti-Semitism is becoming “mainstream” behavior on the right.

The social justice warriors at Freeform are at it again, with the episode "Relation of Lines and Colors" of Switched at Birth revolving around the continuing racial tensions at the University of Missouri—Kansas City following an incident of *gasp* cultural appropriation. The episode, which aired February 21, began with the disclaimer: “While the story that you’re about to see is not based on incidents that happened in Kansas City, it is inspired by real events that have occurred at college campuses all over the country.”

As Republicans work to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the left is fighting tooth and nail to keep it alive, from hyping scare stories of what could happen if it is repealed, to flat-out denying the devastating effects it has caused on so many families. On Thursday’s the View, the liberal hosts on the panel staunchly defended the universal health care law, arguing in circles with the only host critical of the law, Jedediah Bila. Whoopi Goldberg even tried to reason away the negative effects of the law as the insurance companies’ fault.

When it comes to Hollywood, viewers on both sides of the aisle agree: political speeches aren’t that convincing. Only 25 percent of participants have ever changed their opinions based on information presented in a political awards show speech.

Although their baby will supposedly live only a few hours after birth, one couple is rejecting abortion in favor of life. And their heartbreakingly beautiful story is going viral. The media (yes, even the liberal media) picked up the story after Royce Young, an ESPN basketball writer in Oklahoma, applauded his 7-months pregnant wife Keri for carrying their unborn daughter to term – and, in doing so, making their baby a “miracle” for others.

After having been teased on their Snapchat account, The Washington Post made clear its concerns on Tuesday about the future of the country under the Trump administration by adding the slogan “Democracy dies in darkness” to the top of their website below The Washington Post logo.

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.” Yes, co-host Gayle King used the word “citizen.” Talking to USA Today bureau chief Susan Page, Anthony Mason worried, “This could create a climate of fear in the immigrant community if it hasn't already.”

During Tuesday’s press conference, American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan asked Spicer a series of hostile questions about President Trump’s attitudes towards blacks. Most dubiously, Ryan claimed Trump once said “white America built this country,” a statement she could not back up after Spicer questioned the legitimacy of this “quote” from the president.

Tuesday, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Willie Geist interviewed the very liberal MTV News senior political correspondent, Anna Marie Cox. Geist asked, “ You know we saw the Women's March, we’ve seen a lot of activity in the streets over the last month. What is the practical impact of that on the Trump presidency?”

Cox answered by first taking aim at recent statements made about paid protestors:
“This is where we get into the problem about not agreeing on reality, right? If you have a group of people that really truly seem to believe that these are paid protesters that are out there... I haven’t gotten my check yet . . . If you believe . . .  that this is paid protest and somehow outside agitation, which is another phrase reminiscent of the Nixon era, then it doesn’t have an effect at all. Right? Except, just to indicate how cut off from reality the Trump White House is.”
