Even though Barack Obama left the presidency 99 days ago, MSNBC showed late Thursday night why any criticism of him remains unacceptable. On Thursday’s 11th Hour, fill-in host Joy Reid went ballistic when former George W. Bush chief of staff Andy Card suggested that Obama came into office without a distinct set of beliefs to support his decision-making.

Ultraliberal singer Barbra Streisand lamented Hillary Clinton’s election loss in an interview with Leonard Lopate on Wednesday on the New York public radio station WNYC. Like Hillary, Streisand blamed sexism, not Hillary, for the defeat. "Even this last election with Hillary, the kind of – the strong woman, the powerful woman, the educated woman, the experienced woman – being thought of as the Other, you know or too elite, or too educated,” she complained.

This week’s avalanche of layoffs at ESPN has been a story in search of an explanation. Some say that a major reason for the network’s financial woes over the past few years has been, as Clay Travis noted, its “absurd decision to turn into MSESPN, a left wing sports network.” The Ringer’s Bryan Curtis, who endorses the recent leftward drift of sports media, thinks that whether or not ESPN is “a liberal network” is “a legitimate and interesting question that deserves examination,” but finds what he calls the “libtard ESPN got what it deserved!” argument shallow, even knee-jerkish.

The Daily Show started right off the bat Thursday blasting Obama’s “haters,” for criticizing the former president for taking a hefty paycheck from Wall Street for an upcoming speech. While all three networks last night ignored the hypocrisy of Obama cashing in a $400,000 dollar paycheck for speaking to the same group of investors that he had slammed as “fat cats” when he was president, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah still thought even the minimal backlash Obama received was just too much.

The “People’s Climate March,” scheduled for the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, claims to be a movement of the people. But is it really?

It turns out one-third of the steering committee organizations have one thing in common — donations from George Soros. The liberal billionaire gave them more than $36 million combined. So far the broadcast networks have not made the connection.

Liberal reporters have been eager to report on President Trump’s low approval numbers, but they’ve mostly ignored their own, significantly lower approval ratings.

According to Gallup in September of 2016, “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32% saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media.”

RESTON, Va — On Friday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and MRC Latino Director Ken Oliver-Mendez released statements in reaction to Fusion/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos receiving the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Political Journalism.

In a society where preborn children are treated as disposable property, and disregarded in the name of cold, sterile, euphemisms such as “reproductive rights” and “choice,” it’s rare to find a mother who actually does the opposite of putting herself above her child.

If you’re a conservative who cringes whenever the Hollywood left sneaks political punches into movies and shows, brace yourself for the brand-new Netflix original series Girlboss, which premiered April 21.

Yesterday, as Jay Maxson at NewsBusters noted, ESPN laid off 100 on-air personalities. One would think that an awareness of growing financial vulnerability might convince the network to keep its employees' and contributors' most radical impulses in check, lest even more subscribers and/or advertisers get alienated. That certainly isn't happening at ESPNW, the network's women's sports website.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter was set to speak at the University of California, Berkeley Thursday night but that plan was foiled by the threat of violence from radical leftists. “Now to Berkeley, California where new protests are breaking out tonight a day after conservative pundit Ann Coulter's plan to speak at U.C. Berkeley was abruptly canceled,” announced Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News that same evening. Despite the still looming threat of riots, both ABC and CBS decided to move on from the free speech controversy.

The pathetic behavior of action movie director Joss Whedon has been well documented here on NewsBusters, but his tweet on Thursday might be his worst one yet. In a Thursday evening tweet to his 178,000 followers, he used a picture of House Speaker Paul Ryan meeting young women at the U.S. Capitol to suggest Ryan’s a raging pedophile. It was only just over fours later that Whedon came to senses and not only deleted the tweet, but apologized.

President Trump did something Monday I have long advocated. He met with a small group of conservative journalists, pundits and radio talk show hosts. I was among them. After ticking off a list of what he said were his accomplishments leading up to the arbitrary 100-day marker of his presidency, we asked him questions.

The New York Times version of political diversity is that even if you are a scorned "conservative" you can still be tolerated on their pages but ONLY if you are resolutely anti-Trump. A supposed conservative was recently hired by the Times but read this description about him in the very first sentence of this April 12 Politico story:

A development has occurred which should erase any doubt that basic freedoms are in serious jeopardy in much of blue-state America. It is at least as disturbing as the failure of the University of California at Berkeley and the Berkeley Police Department to provide for the safety of conservative Ann Coulter, leading to the cancellation of her planned appearance there.
