The headline at Mediaite was this: "Hillary Clinton Says Donald Trump Presidency Will ‘End in Disgrace With His Impeachment." The story, in part, says this: “Today, Hillary Clinton returned to her Alma Mater, Wellesley College, to give the commencement address. As Clinton fans and detractors alike know, one of her first big moments in the national spotlight was when she gave the address there during her own graduation at a time when students didn’t give commencement speeches. She used that speech almost five decades ago to target a senator, launching her into the political spotlight."

Nowhere is the dearth of opposing opinion more apparent than on the opinion editorial pages of major newspapers.  Syndicated columnists are given space, but local columnists with a right leaning political perspective are few and far between.  Such was my situation as a freelance columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

According to author, critic, and former Fox News Watch panelist Neal Gabler, there’s not much of a mystery about who killed “the idea of media objectivity.” The perp, Gabler alleges, was the late Roger Ailes. “Before Fox News, most people actually trusted the media,” wrote Gabler in a screed that ran Friday on Salon and was originally published at BillMoyers.com.

Jimmy Fallon has a funny way of approaching his late night gig. The former Saturday Night Live star thinks it’s all about making people laugh at the end of the day. It’s not divisive, or corrosive. The “Fallon” method treats guests like … guests. Politics are fair game, but it’s not what matters most.

Soopermexican at The Right Scoop caught an amazing admission in the midnight hour on Friday morning, as CNN was beginning to mourn another Democratic loss in a special election for the House of Representatives. Media reporter Dylan Byers lamented that voters in Montana weren't even really paying attention to their incessant coverage of GOP candidate Greg Gianforte's violent treatment of Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the leftist British newspaper The Guardian, on the night before the election.

Al Franken has a new book out humbly titled Al Franken, Giant of the Senate. On that same level of attempted humor, his author’s biography states he received “his doctorate in right-wing megalomania studies from Trump University.” Stay classy, Sen. Franken.

Sycophantic press profiles of Franken express admiration for the “former comedian” as if the satire stopped. Just two months ago, The Washington Post gushed that in the Age of Trump, “the former comedian and satirist may be having a breakout moment as a political star."

The Trump administration has given late night TV new life. But for all their digs at the president, Stephen Colbert and his ilk aren’t doing much better than POTUS at bringing the country together.

One of the more absurd spectacles in the press's coverage of the economy is the attack on the Trump White House's long-term economic growth assumptions in this week's budget release. The same reporters, pundits and outlets now ridiculing the Trump administration's belief that the economy can consistently grow by 3 percent each year beginning four years from now were stone silent when the Obama administration, whose alums have joined the current negative chorus, used far higher growth assumptions — and miserably failed to achieve them.

Liberal bloggers love to mock the news judgment of Fox News, but CNN and MSNBC were truly displaying their affinity for Hillary Clinton on Friday by giving more than a half-hour of live coverage to her commencement speech at Wellesley College, her alma mater. In the previous hour, Vice President Mike Pence addressed graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, but neither network noticed that. The presidential loser was far more newsworthy than the sitting Vice President.

On Friday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion in which panel members fretted over Republican reaction to GOP Rep.-elect Greg Gianforte violently attacking a reporter, The Atlantic's David Frum managed to inject race into the discussion as he theorized about what Rush Limbaugh would have done if Gianforte were a black Democrat. Frum: "Had the congressman been a black Democrat, imagine what Rush Limbaugh would have said. Rush Limbaugh called the attack 'studly' and 'manly.' Imagine -- it would have -- you would have had an explosion of racial provocation."

Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to deliver another vicious anti-Trump speech Friday afternoon and the media couldn’t get enough of it. Clinton was delivering the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley College, and both MSNBC and CNN took precious time out from their endless Russia conspiracy coverage to gush over the failed presidential candidate’s “fiery” “takedown” of our president

Hoosier State voters elected Mike Pence to Congress for six terms. They elected him governor. Hoosiers helped elect him vice-president. Pence is a huge motor racing fan who has attended the Indianapolis 500 some 30 times, and he is rumored to be the pace car driver for the start of Sunday’s race. But USAToday suggests the vice-president will get a rude greeting Sunday at the Indy 500.

On Friday morning, the media exploded with news of the fourth major ISIS attack against the Coptic community in a span of 6 months. But Egyptian-American preacher Michael Youssef says Coptic Christians are more passionate than ever about their faith. And that’s something the liberal media aren’t talking about.

On Friday, all three network morning shows began with anchors breathlessly declaring that President Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner was “under scrutiny” in the FBI’s Russia investigation. However, after offering the screaming salacious headlines, each broadcast quietly admitted that Kushner was not the target of the investigation nor was he accused of any wrongdoing.

By withdrawing their sponsorships, Univision and other traditional corporate sponsors of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City have listened to the voice of the overwhelming majority of their audiences and consumers, says the Media Research Center (MRC), America’s leading media watchdog. “It’s a simple lesson we hope they’ve now learned: don’t support terrorism,” said Ken Oliver-Méndez, Director of MRC Latino, the Media Research Center’s Hispanic media watchdog program.
