ESPN Magazine writer Howard Bryant, a sports reporter better known for his Black Lives Matter rants about police brutality and his disgust with public patriotism in pro sports, jazzed things up in his latest column with a nasty attack against an unnamed long-time associate (if they were friends before, they won't be anymore) in the February 27 issue. Tennis megastars Serena and Venus Williams were playing each other for the championship at the Australian Open, but Bryant managed to see them as victims of both racism and sexism

Plank said in a CNBC interview that Trump’s “pro-business” attitude is a “real asset for this country.” But later in the interview, he expressed concerns about Trump’s calls for a border tax.

Media bias, it’s been a problem since... Fox News? That’s the claim from liberal View co-host Joy Behar on Tuesday as she bashed “pathological liar” Donald Trump.

They do feel that media is biased.”

The Tuesday Morning Briefing at the New York Times tells us that President Donald Trump, at his rally in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday, "claimed that Sweden was experiencing a crisis because of immigration" and had "suggested that a terrorist attack had occurred there the night before." Concerning the latter, Trump said no such thing, nor did he "suggest" it. Concerning the former, if Sweden's not in crisis, it had a funny way of showing it Monday night, as there were riots in Stockholm.

Donald Trump, like virtually every president before him, is upset that there have been leaks to the news media (and heaven knows who else) from his administration. In his Thursday press conference, Trump emphasized that leaks of classified information or matters relating to national security are "criminal" acts — because they are — and promised to pursue the leakers. That, and Trump's Friday afternoon tweet — that "The FAKE NEWS media ... is the enemy of the American People!" — was apparently enough to send the Washington Post's Margaret Sullivan scurrying under her bed, shaking in fear. Spare me the hysteria.

“Not my president” started off as a rallying cry for liberals shattered by Hillary Clinton’s historic defeat to Donald Trump. But during Monday’s Presidents’ Day holiday, leftists gathered for anti-Trump protests in cities from coast-to-coast in celebration of “Not My President Day.” The liberal Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed to revel in the play on words the rallies brought. “And on this Presidents' Day, thousands of Americans took part in what they called, ‘Not My President Day,’” announced ABC anchor David Muir on World News Tonight.
