America’s left-stream media long ignored the human rights abuses of the communist dictator Castro’s Cuba. Astonishingly, for many in the media it was see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil about Cuba. But now Venezuelan major league baseball players are helping to enlighten the media about a socialist dictator’s crackdown in their home country.

During MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, anchor Ali Velshi breathlessly made a sweeping declaration to viewers: “It certainly feels like we’re in the opening stages of a devastating political chapter in American history. Evidence is mounting for the President’s meddling in the Russia probe.”

Going after President Trump’s new budget, Joe Scarborough moved to tee up Senator Van Hollen of Maryland for a vicious attack on Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe. “Chris, I’m a fiscal conservative,” Scarborough began innocuously, “But when I look at this budget, the blue print that the President has proposed, it is nothing less than hateful.” He then proceeded to expound upon the budget’s many vices crying out, “It guts basic services, it slashes cancer research, it slashes health care for the poor, it slashes money for rural hospitals, it slashes money for rural hospice care, it slashes money for anything involving health care in rural America!”

On the heels of his plea to stop talking about a Democrat Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, CNN Politics editor-at-large Chris Cillizza informed readers on Wednesday to not get their hopes up that President Trump’s fairly successful foreign trip will translate at home when he returns with the Russia investigation surging back (translation: the media will keep destroying him).

​Climate alarmist Michael Mann thinks the attacks on his climate science and his credibility are akin to Nazi persecution.

Speaking at the May 13, commencement address of Green Mountain College, Penn State Meteorology professor Michael Mann borrowed and adapted the words of a Holocaust victim to describe himself.

Late night talk shows are having a great year. The premiere of Comedy Central’s new series, The President Show, had over one million viewers.

More research from liberal universities has confirmed that not only is the media biased against Trump, but a majority of the public doesn’t trust what they read from the mainstream media either. These findings echo a Gallup poll from September that showed only 32 percent of Americans trusted the media.

Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy is not here for the media’s comparisons of America and the dystopia of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Gilead is more like Saudi Arabia. And she should know. After living in Britain for fifteen years, Eltahawy moved to Jidda, Saudi Arabia as a teen. That experience, she reflected in a May 24 New York Times op-ed, “traumatized” her “into feminism.”

Tuesday’s New York Times reporter Julie Turkewitz, who covers the “Rocky Mountain region” for the paper, is excited about Democratic prospects in a special election for the House in Montana. Her ostensible focus is Republican candidate Greg Gianforte, “Billionaire in Montana, Using Trump’s Playbook.” The online headline added: “What Scandal? In Montana Race, a Republican Is Following the Trump Playbook.” There is no major scandal attached to Gianforte’s campaign, but the headline writer went ahead and conflated them, as well as some silly "Russia ties" to make Gianfort appear more Trumpian.

On Tuesday night, the leftish PBS documentary series Frontline aired a documentary titled “Bannon’s War” which seemed awfully reminscent of their anti-Cheney documentary suggestively titled “The Dark Side.” If you’re not a liberal PBS fanatic, it was another boring and predictable slog, attacking Bannon and Trump with lots of black and white photos and scary-sounding orchestral music.

It was more eye-opening to see the Frontline director and writer Michael Kirk appearing on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to promote his anti-Bannon film on Tuesday morning, where made a flat-out false statement about Bannon’s resume, saying “He’d never been in the military.” What? Even Kirk's attack film discussed Bannon’s seven years in the Navy.

It’s Jezebel’s birthday. The left bows in homage.

Jordan Michael Smith, writing for The Guardian, reviews the influence brought about by Jezebel’s presence in the media for the past 10 years. Anna Holmes, the founder of the site, was an editor at InStyle when she started Jezebel. According to Smith, she “hated the magazine’s worship of luxury, the lack of racial diversity, and the shallowness of women’s publications generally.”

Late Show host Stephen Colbert doesn’t hide his disdain for President Donald Trump. He celebrates it.

Even the backlash over Colbert’s recent gay sex joke about Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin did little to slow down the host’s anti-Trump monologues.

One abortion supporter is calling for post-abortive women to be central in today’s conversation about abortion. She’s right. On Saturday, The New York Times published an opinion piece with the headline “Who Should You Listen to on Abortion? People Who’ve Had Them.”

It’s a radical move for the media that positively spin abortion, but that isn’t stopping CBS: the network just covered the story of a pregnant teenager who refused abortion for her baby boy – no matter the cost. On Wednesday, CBS This Morning reported the story of high-school senior Maddi Runkles. Although Runkles boasts a 4.0 average and even served as student council president, she was banned from “walking” at graduation by Heritage Academy, a private Christian school in Maryland.

The aggressively pro-abortion journalists at CBS have suddenly discovered a need to protect society’s “weakest members.” But it’s not a turn towards respecting the pro-life position. No, the hosts of CBS This Morning on Wednesday used this talking point as a way to decry Donald Trump’s proposed budget.
