Federalist publisher Ben Domenech on Tuesday shot down the “partisan” slams on Congressman Devin Nunes, attacks that are coming from Democrats as well as their enablers in the media. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King goaded the conservative to go after Nunes as incapable of leading the investigation related to Trump, Russia and surveillance claims: “Do you think it's necessary to have legitimacy in this investigation?”

Irony abounded on Tuesday as all three network morning shows used Democratic Party talking points to accuse Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes of bias.

The outrage culture is always finding something new to be angry about. This time it was over a business choosing to enforce its rules about how representatives of the company should be dressed.

But that’s not how most people heard the story thanks to the media frenzy, social media and celebrities who rushed to attack United Airlines. NPR called the company’s responses “astonishingly tone-deaf,” a contributor to The Huffington Post reacted by telling Uber that United’s “‘Leggings-Gate’ Just Made You Look Good,” while Fortune’s associate editor Anne VanderMey penned an entire commentary headlined “Leggings Should Be Worn on Planes, and the Office, and Everywhere Else.”

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is a moral organization that saves lives, according to fans in Hollywood. And no, it’s not “speaking in opposites” day. On Sunday, Scandal star Tony Goldwyn publicized his support of America’s largest abortion provider. At Paleyfest, an entertainment media conference located in Los Angeles, Goldwyn wore a golden pin for “lifesaving” Planned Parenthood.

This past weekend, Erica Werner and Alan Fram at the Associated Press had a good old time beating up on President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled House over their "humiliating failure" to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. In the process, though, the reporters, who have been covering Washington politics since the ACA's inception, betrayed breathtaking ignorance of one of its basic principles, calling into question whether they have any genuine knowledge of the legislation the GOP tried and failed to repeal and replace.

There’s a small community of adults in America who are sexually gratified by wearing diapers, sleeping in cribs and playing with toys. Just when you thought sexual deviance couldn’t get any weirder.

Barack Obama isn’t even in office anymore but Democrats are still pining for their long lost savior. Liberal commentator and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, Angela Rye bemoaned this fact on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night. After discussing Congressman Devin Nunes’ comments about the investigation into Trump’s wiretapping claims, Rye expressed outrage that the media wasn’t talking about other issues, instead of talking about “something that didn’t happen.”

When it comes to business, Planned Parenthood is for Hollywood and diapers are for Trump, according to two liberal activist celebrities. On Monday, actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin appeared as guests on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to discuss their Netflix show, Grace & Frankie. But that’s not all they did: the two stars got political.

New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters used the failure of President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress to repeal Obamacare in order to pile on the hostile ideological labels in his Monday post-mortem, particularly on top of those “Republican hard-liners” who don’t believe in good governance: “G.O.P., Once Unified Against Obama, Struggles for Consensus Under Trump.” In all there were 15 ideological labels in the 1100-word story: 11 “conservative” labels, two “right,” one “far right,” and one “hard-liners.”

In ABC’s Quantico on Monday the episode titled “Mockingbird” exposes the dark side of fake news. The story has a political element to it and guess which party takes the hit? Right. The bad guys are Republican politicians. The town of Brookwall, Virginia is evacuated after an explosion at a chemical storage facility. Concerns over water quality bring in federal agents to conduct tests and monitor the situation. The problem is, though, the story is fake news. An emergency was deliberately created and reported to allow the bad guys – private contractors- to find one individual. That person is a Republican senator’s “media guru."

Three months into the year, we may have reached peak 2017. Univision, after years of waging open war on Republicans, is now openly complaining about lack of access to Congressional Republicans. Most of the on-the-record whining comes from Edición Nocturna (Univision's late-night newscast) co-anchor Enrique Acevedo, who has this to say to Politico's Hadas Gold:

If there was one thing that our politically divided country could agree on, it was the seriousness of drunk driving. But during Monday’s edition of The Lead, that common understanding took a back seat for CNN as they bemoaned that a so-called “DREAMer” was deported. “Last August [Jorge] Matadamas was charged with drunk driving and evading arrest. While in jail, he lost his DACA status,” reported Polo Sandoval, “[A] program which gave him a chance to live and work in the U.S. After seven months in detention, he was deported.”

Liberal media apologists for unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick are growing more indignant by the day with NFL teams who show no interest in signing the controversial free agent. Two ESPN writers today posted highly critical blogs in defense of Kaepernick.

During a press briefing on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that if so-called sanctuary cities continued to hinder the implementation of federal immigration law, then federal law enforcement funds would be pulled. CBS Evening News pushed back against the Trump administration’s efforts by playing on the fears regarding, as anchor Scott Pelley said, “Who is being targeted.” Meanwhile, both ABC and NBC chose not to report on Sessions’ threat.

New on March 27: In the wake of the failure of the House to pass the bill to replace ObamaCare, Washington Post and Time magazine veteran Carl Bernstein appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources where he let loose on President Donald Trump.
