This week Oprah's mega-church drama Greenleaf featured not one, but two gay storylines, both regarding discipline: one was a matter of self-discipline and the other dealt with discipline within church leadership.

NBC’s Superstore wanted to make a "progressive" statement about illegal immigration, but went WAY over the line - complete with comparisons to Nazi Germany and "Heil Hitler" salutes.

Ever since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, the liberal media has been harping on the D.C. hotel that bears his name. The concern is that Trump is violating the leasing contract of the historic post office owned by the federal government, which says a public official cannot profit from the property. But according to a news brief by anchor Scott Pelley on CBS Evening News on Thursday, that’s no longer an issue for the President, a fact that was omitted by both ABC and NBC.

On Wednesday in Washington D.C., Jessica Chastain appeared at the Holocaust Memorial Museum for a special advance screening of her new movie The Zookeeper’s Wife when she commented that the Trump administration could learn a thing or two about compassion when it came to refugees.

Thursday was the final day for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hear outside arguments for or against Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. Despite his stellar qualifications, Senate Democrats vowed to throw a hissy-fit and filibuster the confirmation vote. The act is completely unprecedented and is clearly being done out of revenge. And even with that fact, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed to find little interest in the development and gave the story the bare minimum of a news brief.

Lacking any self-awareness, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews opened Thursday’s show by blurting out the word “loser” then lambasted Republicans and President Trump as “barbarians” running Washington. If that name-calling wasn’t enough, Matthews later diagnosed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) contrived by a “gang of Obama-litionists” as having suffered “political euthanasia” and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (Calif.) as a dog for informing Trump Wednesday about intelligence collected against his team.

Liberals are so far gone in their Trump Derangement Syndrome that they can't even wait for an impeachment of President Donald Trump to actually happen in real life. They now have to have their fantasy fulfilled in fiction. In this case it is in the form of a play, "Building the Wall," and skips the actual impeachment by jumping to a post impeachment era in which people who worked for the Trump administration are put on trial.

As former New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte appeared as a guest on Thursday's Andrea Mitchell Reports to discuss the Neil Gorsuch nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, host Mitchell brought up "bitterness" from Democrats about the Senate's refusal to take up President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland last year. She ended up claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden was "taken out of context, with all due respect," after Republican Ayotte started to recall that, in 1992, then-Senator Biden advocated blocking action on any potential Supreme Court vacancies until after the election.

In their March 12 coverage of the release from prison of a Jordanian man who killed seven Israeli schoolgirls 20 years ago, Washington Post reporters Ruth Eglash and Taylor Luck quoted one of the many Jordanians who consider the man a hero claiming that “Israelis kill Palestinians by the hundreds every month, and no one is brought to justice." The pair allowed that claim to go unchallenged, leaving one to wonder where this "great journalism" the paper promotes in its subscription solicitations is hiding.

The women's magazine Elle is carrying a weird negative profile of White House Kellyanne Conway. The subhead to Tish Durkin's profile reads "For many Kellyanne Conway was a shock, invented out of whole cloth (and the tweets of her client. But her mendacious, loquacious assault on liberalism has been more than 20 years in the making." To trash Conway the hardest, Durkin turned to the liberal media for support.

When President Trump made his claim that President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the presidential campaign, the media demanded evidence. Since Trump’s initial tweet on March 4, the evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC have called on the White House to provide more evidence a grand total of 123 times.

With the potential repeal and replacement of Obamacare looming large in the news, a discussion about health care during Thursday morning’s edition of the Cable News Network’s New Day program became surly when Mary Katharine Ham, a senior writer for The Federalist, got into a debate with “nasty” co-host Chris Cuomo.

New York Times Katie Rogers tried to have it both ways in her story on Chelsea Clinton’s Twitter feed, claiming the Clinton daughters’ tweets were “innocent,” and forwarded advice from a Clinton friend to Chelsea’s “naysayers”: “Just unfollow.” Yet Rogers still reprinted some of Clinton’s highly politicized tweets, as if to keep her in the partisan mix anyway. Rogers’ front page Styles section report, “Calm Before the Tweet Storm – Chelsea Clinton shows a more confrontational side online,” was news-free publicity for Clinton, while avoiding controversy -- and actual news value -- like the plague
What? New York Times Dedicates Full Story to Praising Wall Street Journal for Editorial Critical of TrumpBy Curtis Houck | | March 23, 2017 | 5:18 PM EDT
Folks, this is like McDonalds writing about how great the burgers at Wendy’s are. In Thursday’s print edition, The New York Times dithered away with a 750-word-plus story heaping praise on New York City competitor The Wall Street Journal for publishing a Wednesday editorial slamming the credibility of President Trump.

On Thursday, MSNBC's Hallie Jackson used liberal talking points to grill GOP Congressman Buddy Carter on the way his colleague is leading the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into the Obama administration possibly collecting surveillance of members on then-President-elect Donald Trump's transition team. The Georgia representative, a supporter of Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, is against calls for an independent investigation. Jackson asked Carter, "Is the argument for an independent investigation bolstered now because of what Devin Nunes did?"
