Talk about softball pitching. CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter interviewed New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Sunday, and set him up to boast that the Times has never been hotter and that President Trump hates them because he has this "dangerous" tendency to hate newspapers who hold him accountable.

Stelter didn't point out that the Times endorsed Hillary Clinton as an excellent choice and added parenthetically "(We will explain in a subsequent editorial why we believe Mr. Trump to be the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.)"

Having finally watched an episode of HBO’s Girls, I can now honestly say how inane, self-righteous, raunchy, and, quite honestly, stupid the show is first-hand. This is not something I say proudly, especially when it regards a topic something that should never be covered by Lena Dunham: women’s accusations of rape.

The 89th Academy Awards, aka The Oscars, was broadcast by ABC live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, hosted by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. As with other award shows of late, politics reared its ugly liberal head and showed us exactly why Hollywood is often referred to derisively as "La La Land."

Celebs weren't the only ones getting political through Oscars evening -- journalists and liberal organizations did too.

On Friday's The View on ABC, as Breitbart News senior editor at large Joel Pollak appeared as a guest, co-host Sunny Hostin tried to claim that White House advisor and former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon is someone who has made a "laundry list" of "bigoted statements," but, when pressed, failed to name a single example. The segment began with co-host Joy Behar recalling that some liberals have called the website "white supremacist," as she asked her guest how he would describe it.

Michael Moore predicted that political Oscars speeches will be well received this year. But before the spiels even got under way, stars were making a statement on the red carpet.

Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sunday’s Meet the Press, after Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton had to explain to him that the claims of anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt. “Anonymous sources said Steve Bannon drove from the White House to the Department of Homeland Security to confront John Kelly, which we now know is not the truth,” Cotton reminded Todd, “That’s not like the tone of a conversation, that’s someone’s physical whereabouts.”

Sunday’s New York Times featured the latest installment in easily-freaked media reporter Jim Rutenberg’s crusade against President Trump: “Trump’s Undermining Reporters May Haunt Republicans.” The online headline foreshadowed Rutenberg’s unlikely attempt to enlist Republicans in defense of the press and against Trump: “Will the Real Democracy Lovers Please Stand Up?” while the text box delivered an empty threat: “This strategy could push Republicans into a corner later.” Rutenberg made no acknowledgement of the increasingly unconcealed anti-Trump partisanship displayed by the media, including his own newspaper and own column.

Things got painfully real for the liberal media during CNN’s New Day Sunday after Nick Adams, Founder of the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness, called out the White House Correspondent’s Dinner for being “a Democratic Party worship center.” “But, I think that there's no reason for the President to go on this particular occasion,” Adams explained, after being asked if Trump should attend the lavish liberal event, “I know that it's a long-standing tradition, but in recent years it’s become a blight on the republic.”

Earlier this week, Baltimore Orioles executive vice president and chief operating officer John Angelos said that he wouldn't want President Donald Trump to throw out the first pitch at his team's Camden Yards home opener until Trump "retract(s) all these outrageous things that have been said and simply apologize(s)." Most coverage of this story has failed to report that Angelos's father Peter is a longtime, heavy-contributing Democratic Party operative, while no one has questioned John's disingenuous claim of non-partisanship.

Here at NewsBusters this was the headline: “NBC News Uses Kids to Criticize Trump in New Video.” The story by Melissa Mullins began this way: “On Sunday, NBC News has resorted to using children in videos to deliver statements criticizing to President Trump just one month into his presidency.  Opening with a young boy eager about an outsider coming to Washington to bring people together, the series, ‘Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children,’ then begins throwing cheap shots by using kids.”

The MRC's Rich Noyes on Friday appeared on Fox News to discuss reports that the White House is blocking some media outlets from an off-camera press gaggles. The research director suggested an alternative path, saying Donald Trump should continue to “criticize them.” He added, “If you have a problem, point them out, showcase it. Make sure everybody understands why that was sloppy journalism and let the chips fall where they may after you air the dirty laundry.”

If you’re going to watch Sunday’s Oscars, be prepared for a tsunami of liberal rage, more so than the usual Academy Awards. The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday reported that actor Jack Black hailed actress Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech and lobbied for more at the Oscars: “I just hope she wins the Oscar and talks some more shit about that asshole.”

Major entertainment site tries to connect President Trump to possible Oscar night violence. Last year’s Oscars ceremony featured glitz, glamour … and more military personnel than the event typically demands. Why? The ceremony took place after terrorist strikes in both Paris and San Bernardino, Calif. Understandably, a higher police profile became necessary. News outlets dutifully covered the aggressive approach.
