The CBS Man With a Plan episode appropriately titled "The Talk" made the birds and the bees a little more liberal than the traditional way parents put it for their children, adding only shock and confusion.

The liberal HBO show The Young Pope’s fourth episode, aired on January 23, has the Pope suggest that pedophiles and homosexuals constitute a whopping two thirds of the clergy.

In “Chapter Fifty-Two” of CW’s Jane the Virgin, one last desperate quip in support of Hillary Clinton was randomly inserted into a conversation about Jane’s husband Michael’s (Brett Dier) new ambition to be a stand-up comedian.

Dan Rather, a man whose career at CBS was destroyed by a lie he couldn’t let go of, appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball where he was outraged at Kellyanne Conway’s coined term of “alternate facts.” “Well, to say it was unfortunate is, to put it mildly. This was a big mistake,” he declared as he started to tear into the president’s advisor, “None of us can go into this world alternative facts.”

The New York Times reported Monday afternoon that NBC has suspended Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich indefinitely for tweeting ... well, what? Reporter Dave Itzkoff failed to tell readers what Rich tweeted just minutes after Donald Trump was inaugurated as the nation's 45th President on Friday. Instead, he vaguely described it as "a widely criticized post she made Friday on her personal Twitter account in which she mocked Barron Trump, the 10-year-old son of President Donald J. Trump." That description required over 100 more characters than Rich's offensive tweet contained. Itzkoff's failure to quote is part of a trend.

Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich found herself in hot water over the weekend after the 33-year-old thought it was humorous to bully 10-year-old Barron Trump, saying “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.” In response to Rich’s vile tweet, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton spoke up and defended the president’s son. ABC and NBC, of course, touted her defense Monday morning, but none of them mentioned the offense originated from an SNL writer, a show they love to quote.

Two largely unheralded accomplishments by President Trump right out of the gate -- first, his mere presence in Washington compelled countless women to get more exercise in one day than Michelle Obama could persuade them to exert over eight years. And second, inducing liberal court jester Bill Maher to question the sanctity of a major federal bureaucracy. Not bad for Trump's first weekend in office.

Maher conspicuously deviated from his practice of including at least a token conservative or Trump supporter among his guests on Friday night's season opener of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, opting instead to go unchallenged with a group of like-minded leftists who nodded vigorously in agreement. A safe space indeed for a man who once touted his politically incorrect bona fides.

It would be difficult to think of any principle more basic than that criminal defendants can’t be convicted except by proof beyond a reasonable doubt. But left-leaning “fact-checker” PolitiFact doesn’t even know it. In an error-filled January 19 “fact-check,” PolitiFact’s Anna Orso writes about “the ‘clear and convincing’ standard used in criminal trials.”  The clear and convincing evidence standard is not used in criminal trials. Even my nine-year old daughter knows that the correct standard is “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Monday battled with CNN reporter Jim Acosta, demanding that journalists just “report it straight up” when it comes to the President. CNN is the outlet that Trump blasted as “fake news” and Spicer demanded, “Some days we do do the right thing. Some days we are successful.... When we're wrong, say we're wrong. But it's not always wrong and negative.”

New York Times media reporter Jim Rutenberg used the D-word in his latest excoriation of the new president in “The Costs of Trump’s Brand of Reality.” “Disinformation was once for dictatorships, not the U.S.”...was how Rutenberg's story was plugged on the front of Monday’s paper, for his “Mediator” column on the front of Business Day.

To start of his first week in office, Donald Trump spent the morning signing executive orders, one of which was reversing a pro-abortion policy from the Obama Administration. The “Mexico City” policy, more commonly called the “Global Gag” policy by the left, bans federal funds from being given to organizations who pay for or promote abortions overseas. It was originally enacted by Ronald Reagan in 1984 and was rescinded in 2009 by President Obama. Now eight years later, President Trump has reinstated the policy, and some liberal journalists’ displeasure with the news came across in their reporting and their tweets.

After calling on some reporters not from establishment media, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer finally called on network reporters in his Monday press briefing, including a tense square-off with ABC’s Jonathan Karl over whether he needs to “pledge never to knowingly say something that is not factual.” When Spicer called on Karl, he admitted that he wanted “[b]efore I get to a policy question, just a question about the nature of your job.”

Critics gave former Vice President Al Gore grief for predicting in An Inconvenient Truth that major cities including lower Manhattan would be underwater if severe ice melt occurred. Now Gore is rewriting history to claim his prediction came true in order to promote his upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which debuted at Sundance on Jan. 19.

In this case, context is the difference between honesty and self-interested revisionism.

The broadcast morning and evening news shows have spent 20 minutes and 18 seconds focusing on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments about the size of Donald Trump’s Inauguration crowd. Meanwhile, when President Trump signed a far more consequential executive order that limits the penalties from the Affordable Care Act, the same networks spent only 1 minute and 39 seconds covering it – less than one-twelfth the coverage.

CNN's David Gergen and Martha Pease gushed over the anti-Donald Trump Women's March in a Sunday op-ed for the news network's website: "It was certainly a magic moment -- hundreds of thousands of women pouring hour after hour into the Mall in Washington." Gergen and Pease contended that "Trump may have done something that...even Barack Obama could not do: spark the creation of a progressive movement that massively resists an America that goes backward." The pair also touted how the protesters "fear that...they will lose control not only of their bodies but of their basic rights and destinies."
