On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, viewers could see a contradictory message as CNN regulars repeatedly embellished the Sixth Congressional District of Georgia as being solidly Republican -- even though there were also a few times when CNN regulars conceded that Donald Trump only beat Hillary Clinton by about a point in the district. But the CNN regulars still kept going back to painting the district as solidly Republican, using the tags "deep red," "rock solid," "Republican stronghold," "really conservative red," "really ruby red Republican," and "deeply Republican" to refer either to the Sixth District or the state of Georgia in general.

Raise your hand if you thought that Univision, of all outlets, would defy politically correct media convention and be the most factually accurate when it came to covering the utterances made by the shooter upon his arrest in Fresno, California. Shockingly, this is exactly what happened.

Wednesday night’s episode of Shots Fired, “Hour 5: Before the Storm,” officially established the show as over-the-top, race-baiting nonsense. While DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephen James) and Investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan) delve deeper into their investigation of the deaths of black, unarmed teen Joey Campbell and white, unarmed teen Jesse Carr, their discovery about the white, racist police department out to get black people takes an inexplicable turn. Akino pieces together that rich, white people are hunting poor, black people for sport. Literally.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States heard the oral argument for the controversial Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer. The case tackles the idea of a separation between church and state, “The question: Can states refuse to give money to churches even when it's for something that doesn't involve worship,” noted Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News. And judging by questions asked by the justices, it appeared as though the majority might side with the church. And judging by NBC’s coverage, the network was appalled by the idea.

Left-stream writers love to criticize conservatives as people who are stuck in the past. But truth be known, they are mired in yesteryear as it relates to race. One of their pet narratives is to claim we are as racist a nation today as we were in the long ago past. They’re doing it again now in conjunction with the recent start of the major-league baseball season and baseball’s annual observance of Jackie Robinson Day.

During the April 18 edition of CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota pressed GOP candidate Karen Handel on whether the runoff regarding the special election in Georgia’s Sixth District in 60 days is “a referendum on Donald Trump.”
Handel responded by blasting her opponent, Jon Ossoff, who was the only Democratic candidate and received 48.1 percent of the vote in the election, since he “doesn’t even live in the district” and “couldn’t even vote for himself yesterday.”

Religious freedom is not something to toy with – even on the playground. On Wednesday, an unusual crowd gathered outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. as justices inside heard oral arguments on whether or not a religiously-affiliated preschool can receive government money to make its playground safer for kids. In interviews with MRC Culture, conservative and religious speakers, rallying in support of the school, demanded the media “tell the truth” about the case.

An interesting development took place earlier this month in Boston as Democratic mayoral candidate Tito Jackson had to apologize for grabbing the arm of a female local NPR reporter similar to how Corey Lewandowski physically grabbed reporter Michelle Fields in March 2016.

Paying taxes is almost universally hated — especially on Tax Day — when it is fresh on the minds of everyone who filed their 1040.
But instead of focusing on the attitudes of taxpayers or even the amount of money the federal government takes from citizens, the networks had other priorities. Like beating up President Donald Trump over his tax returns.

Following Wednesday’s White House press briefing, White House correspondents from ABC and CNN expressed their pathetic bitterness and sense of entitlement, whining the press secretary Sean Spicer didn’t call on them or some of their friends in the liberal media.

During Wednesday’s White House briefing, NBC reporter Hallie Jackson asked if President Trump was “expending too much political capital on a race that Republicans should be winning easily,” referring to Georgia’s special congressional election. In response, Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the absurd liberal media narrative that it was a “symbolic” or “emotional” victory for Democrats despite their candidate falling short.

Senator Elizabeth Warren was on Wednesday’s The View to talk about her new book, but it turned into the usual slob fest of friendly questions and Trump-bashing answers. However, the interview started off unexpectedly, with libertarian host Jedediah Bila asking Warren to play devil’s advocate and name one thing that Trump had done “right” in his first 90 days in office. Warren, ever partisan, couldn’t even manage that and turned the question around to name everything Trump had done “wrong” in office so far.

As network news hosts chat up the idea of running Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president in 2020, the ultraliberal Harvard hero is out with a feisty new campaign book titled This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class. So The New York Times found a reviewer...or just a gob-smacked fan? They let their own socialist professor/columnist Paul Krugman write a fan letter thinly disguised as a book review.
It began by hailing activist professors (now there’s an unexpected twist...)

MSNBC on Wednesday touted the “extremely close” “symbolic” “victory” for Democrats in Georgia’s special election, seeing the failure to win as a “sign of hope.” MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle also chastised Trump, saying, “President Trump weighing in, going in on a new tweet, really a tirade against the Democrat.”
