The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday fawned over the march by liberal women over the weekend, devoting eight minutes and 36 seconds to it. Co-host Charlie Rose was so excited, he marveled, “Is it comparable to anything in history we have seen?”

It seems that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Marketplace show was unable to find a racist Trump supporter. Instead they hired an actor named Mike to portray one as you shall see. Mike's job as a racist Trump supporter was to sell a couple of White Power T-shirts along with a "Make Canada Great Again" T-shirt. It was their laughably unsubtle attempt to link Donald Trump to racism.

For years, conservatives and libertarians have been demanding the government rein in wasteful federal spending. Even liberal former President Obama once promoted the idea of agency consolidation. One agency, the Centers for Disease Control, has been called out for wasteful spending and duplication of effort for many years. Now a new report published Dec. 19, 2016, by EconoSTATS had done it again. The think tank’s work revealed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been duplicating work done by 19 other federal agencies.

New on January 23: ABC’s Terry Moran declared President Trump’s “America First" Inaugural address reminded him of Nazi sympathizers: “It carries with it overtones from the 1930s when an anti-Semitic movement saying, ‘We don't want to get involved in Europe;s war. It’s the Jews’ fault in Germany.’...the words themselves carry very ugly echos in our history.”

On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Van Jones offered his theory about the controversy over the size of the crowd that attended President Trump's inauguration: "Ordinary leaders rely on the Constitution as a source of their legitimacy. But you get these kind of leaders that have these more authoritarian overtones — it's not the power of our constitution; it's the size of their crowds. The legitimacy doesn't come from these documents. They come from the fact that I represent something." Jones later added, "When you diminish his crowd size, it's...a blow to his sense of legitimacy."

New York Times right-of-center columnist Ross Douthat diplomatically but thoroughly documented the liberal bias and anti-Trump animus in the mainstream press. Of necessity, he avoided criticizing his own paper, but some of the shrewd points he made in “The Tempting of the Media” on Sunday certainly apply to journalists at his own paper. Douthat summarized “two common views among journalists about the fate of our profession under the presidency of Donald Trump,” one of a crackdown on independent journalism, the other “a golden age...for serious investigative journalism.” But he had another worry: "hysterical oppositionalism" to Trump.

In an interview with former Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer grilled the former cabinet official on wether President Trump was planning to re-invade the Middle East to “steal Iraq’s oil” and commit an “international crime” in the process.

While the media have obsessively covered the Women’s March, not many have exposed its liberal backing. Bill O’Reilly was a key exception, citing Media Research Center statistics in the process.

In Hollywood, there are unforgivable crimes – performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration, for one. Making a serious movie about Christ’s passion and death, for another. But a powerful and celebrated 43-year-old director raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old? Not so much.
