The media didn’t hesitate to report on the recent charges filed against the Center for Medical Progress. But will they reveal the contents of the group’s latest video, which suggests that some Planned Parenthood abortionists are okay with killing born-alive babies?

It’s the end of the world as we know it. Just when lefty celebrities thought the world couldn’t get any worse, President Donald Trump stabbed Mother Earth in the heart.

Just in time for Planned Parenthood’s “Pink Out Day,” the networks are twisting the news surrounding California charges against pro-life activists. On Tuesday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced 15 criminal charges filed against two Center for Medical Progress (CMP) executives, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, for invasion of privacy. CMP first made headlines in 2015, when the self-described “group of citizen journalists” released undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby parts.

The New York Times on Thursday offered a collective freak out, devoting no less than four articles to how the “denialists” in the Trump administration are “risking the planet” by rolling back Barack Obama’s climate regulation. That amounted to almost 4000 words. Jettisoning any pretense of objectivity, the liberal paper included this biased headline: “Climate Change Denialists in Charge.” Writer Coral Davenport warned, “Climate denial starts at the top.”

The New York Times’ recently launched Race/Related project produced yet another piece aimed to appeal to the broad social justice warrior faction among its readership: “What Racial Terms Make You Cringe?” The short answer for over-sensitive Times reporters: Any term used in a conservative talking point. Among those “cringing” NYT staffers was immigration-beat reporter and Phoenix bureau chief Fernanda Santos, a long-time activist reporters for illegals “in the shadows,” who lectured on the evil of the term "illegal immigrants" to refer to illegal immigrants.

On Wednesday’s New Day on CNN, hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota threw a pity party for reporter April Ryan, commiserating with her about how unfairly Trump treats the “credible” media, after her testy exchange with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer Tuesday. Ryan laughably denied she wanted to “be” the story, after coming on national television to defend herself. She went on to bash conservative and independent media in press briefings as peddlers of “fake news” that shouldn’t be given media credentials.

Liberal climate blogs have insulted climate change skeptics with a term reminiscent of Holocaust deniers almost every other day — just since Donald Trump’s election. InsideClimate News, DeSmogBlog and Grist smeared people skeptical of claims about man-made climate change labeling them “deniers” on Twitter at least 69 times combined between Nov. 8, 2016, and March 27, 2017.

Whenever liberals get upset about something, its almost a guarantee that the broadcast networks will do a story channeling their fears. That was the case Wednesday morning, as ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today seized on left-wing environmental activists being in hysterics over President Trump’s executive order rolling back excessive environmental regulations imposed by the Obama administration.

The Washington Post is condemning one pro-life group for cherry-picking – while turning a blind eye to its own basket full of them. On Sunday, The Washington Post editorial board defended America’s largest abortion provider in an opinion piece with the headline, “More lies on Planned Parenthood.” In a list of complaints, the board accused pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List of sponsoring an “advertising campaign” with “misleading data and half-truths.” SBA List provided a response to the board below – but whether or not the members will reply is another issue.

She may have lost the election but that doesn’t mean the media doesn’t still hang on her every word. After Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance before an audience in San Francisco attending a diversity conference March 28, the networks couldn’t get enough. ABC, NBC and CBS all devoted time to Clinton’s speech the next morning, playing several clips where she bashed the White House for its handling of healthcare, diversity and other issues

Tuesday on Morning Joe, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski opened the show by discussing House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes and whether he should remove himself from pending investigations concerning Russian ties to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Scarborough began with a question: “Alright, so let's ask a question, Mika, that needs to be asked at the top before we get into this news. Who decided that Devin Nunes was...qualified to be the House Intel chair? Because from everybody that I've spoken to who have worked with him, Republicans, Democrats, they say he is not up to that task.”

While it’s definitely not a family-friendly show, March 28th's episode of The Detour, “The Heat,” had a couple of hilarious moments that almost made up for the raunchiness of the rest of the show. The Detour centers around a not-so typical family as real-life couple and show creators Jason Jones and Samantha Bee play parents Nate and Robin who take their kids on a road trip.

In Tuesday's episode of Freeform’s The Fosters titled “Dirty Laundry,” the family led by married lesbian moms and comprised of multi-ethnic children – biological, adopted and foster – takes permissive liberal parenting to a new level. Am I the only mom today that thinks allowing a 16 year old son and his girlfriend to have sex in his bedroom is crossing a bridge too far?

On Monday's The View on ABC, as the group discussed Ted Koppel's recent interview with Sean Hannity in which he accused the conservative FNC host of being bad for the country, liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and Joy Behar all wrongly accused Fox News of promoting birtherism conspiracy theories against President Barack Obama. Ironically, a Nexis search reveals many examples of FNC anchors over the years disputing the conspiracy theories that Obama was born in Kenya, as they repeatedly made known their belief that he was born in Hawaii and that those who claimed otherwise were misguided.

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan honored CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley on Monday in a column headlined “Scott Pelley is showing his bias for the truth.” Inside the Style section, the headline was “Good reporters can’t be neutral about the truth.”
The problem with this approach is wanting to have it both ways. Pelley has a “pro-truth” bias, but he’s somehow unbiased. He’s honored for calling Trump “divorced from reality” and calling Trump aide Kellyanne Conway a “fearless fabulist.” But somehow what Sullivan honors, those “dogged” and “blunter” judgments, are unbiased?
