Although many media outlets have given Hobby Lobby a bad rap for its Christian values, Forbes today offered a refreshingly balanced look at what it means to be Christian company. And it’s not, as contributor Jerry Bowyer wrote, a “greed or misogyny thing”—it’s a “conscience thing.”

On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a pre-recorded segment in which CNN's Alisyn Camerota was seen speaking with six Donald Trump voters about how they view the President's performance, the New Day host cracked a joke about whether one panel member was calling President Trump a "maniac" and "insane," or North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

In case there was any doubt which side The New York Times favors when it comes to climate change opinions, the paper devoted three entire pages to “the effects of President Trump’s environmental policy.”

Just a day after Earth Day — on April 23 — the front page of the Sunday Review section of the Times featured an enormous graphic illustration of planet Earth and the headline “The Planet Doesn’t Have Time for This.” Beneath that, a subhead attacked President Donald Trump and warned the planet might “never recover” from his climate policies.

On Tuesday, the broadcast networks were delighted that President Trump decided to temporarily hold off on border wall funding in order to help reach a budget deal in Congress. Rather than credit Trump for making a reasonable compromise to avoid a government shutdown, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows eagerly spun the news as a defeat for the White House.

This year's annual far-left environmentalist Earth Day events were repackaged as "The March for Science." On Monday, despite weekend events' obvious agenda, MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle gleefully told viewers leading into a commercial break that "it wasn’t partisan," and that "the marches were apolitical."

While ABC, CBS and NBC on Monday and Tuesday found time to celebrate the return of “easy-going,” rested Barack Obama to the public scene, none of them covered the release of a blockbuster expose that reveals the buried secrets of the ex-President’s Iran deal giveaway.

It seems as if Hollywood can’t get enough of comparing our president to a certain German 20th century dictator. Liberal director Ron Howard added his contribution Tuesday, revealing to the Daily Beast that Trump inspired a Nazi character in his new television series about Alfred Einstein called “Genius.”

Lena Dunham – a media darling shunned by many liberals and conservatives alike – has a new show on the road. After the finale of her controversial HBO series Girls, Dunham and producing partner Jenni Konner are planning their next project. In a statement published early this week, the women announced that they will be taking Lenny Letter – a feminist newsletter they began in 2015 – on a six-day tour through the Midwest.

The cancellation of Jorge Ramos' signature show (and subsequent repurposing of the veteran anchor's role) on Fusion tells us much more about the direction network has taken than it does about the controversial anchor. And no one should be surprised.

Dan Savage and his liberal followers want to impeach the president -- but that's putting it nicely. In an April 18 Instagram post, the gay speaker/activist enthused about his recent project—selling hats, coffee mugs, pins and other gear emblazoned with the acronym ITMFA (“Impeach The Mother F**ker Already”).

For a supposedly “non-partisan” event, Science March coverage was decidedly one sided. Following the March for Science, on Earth Day (April 22), ABC, CBS and NBC evening news spent eight minutes positively covering the event. None of the broadcasts mentioned or interviewed the many actual scientists who denounced the march. They didn’t include any dissenting views of the event at all. They also portrayed the march as dominated by scientists, not activists without proof.

Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.

The New York Times is still treating FBI Director James Comey’s decision to reopen the case of Hillary Clinton’s emails as a leading factor in her loss. But the 7,500-word lead story in Sunday’s New York Times: “In Trying to Avoid Politics, Comey Shaped an Election – Behind-the-Scenes Handling of 2 Inquiries Thrust F.B.I. Into Center of Race” also contained a hidden “bombshell” that the Times should acknowledge to defend its own journalistic integrity against Democratic criticism.

With Republicans set to make another run at repealing and replacing ObamaCare this week, look for the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) to blame conservatives, specifically, the House Freedom Caucus for any sort of obstruction to getting a deal done. In 30 days of health care debate coverage (March 7 through April 5), the broadcast networks consistently framed it as a fight between unreasonable conservatives versus more moderate Republicans and Senate Democrats by overwhelmingly applying ideological labels to one side of the argument.

Media bias…is not a new thing. 

One of Rage Against the Machine’s big hits was “Bulls on Parade.”  Were anyone to pen a tune about the media -- “Lemmings on Parade” as a title would eminently work.
