Once again, MSNBC prominently featured former Obama administration official Jeremy Bash as a nonpartisan intelligence analyst with an appearance on Wednesday’s The 11th Hour. Host Brian Williams swooned over Bash as an “institutionalist” while Bash warned that the Trump-Russia story “is a huge crisis” threatening “our Madisonian system of checks and balances.”

Bill Nye produced a curious video on Wednesday, March 29, in which “the Science Guy” claimed that global warming might be solved by genetically engineering livestock to produce less of the methane greenhouse gas farted by animals ranging from cows to sheep or goats.
“Agriculture researchers are going to produce or breed farm animals that produce less methane by changing the bacteria that are in their stomachs,” Nye claimed. “To get all the way down to a plant-based diet might be tricky for a lot of people. However, it seems like a good idea.”

A lean compromise may be better than a fat lawsuit, but as NC Gov. Roy Cooper discovered today, it tends to alienate both sides. On the afternoon of March 30, state legislators rushed to repeal HB2 – North Carolina’s controversial law requiring students and government workers to use restrooms that correspond to their biological sex. An NCAA ultimatum was the impetus.

Planned Parenthood boasts a long, friendly history with celebrities. And, as the abortion giant faces defunding and new scandal, Hollywood is only becoming more stubborn in its support. On Wednesday, Planned Parenthood hosted a national “Pink Out Day” campaign. America’s largest abortion provider asked participants to show support by wearing pink and posting on social media in an effort to “turn the whole internet Planned Parenthood pink.” To ensure its success, stars from Elizabeth Banks to Charlize Theron joined the push on Twitter.

Appearing in MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, Evelyn Farkas, the former Obama administration official who admitted on national television earlier this month that the Democratic administration was trying to “get as much information” as possible about Donald Trump and his associates, claimed she was actually the victim of a “dark campaign of fake news.”

One CNBC anchor thinks the media are “in cahoots with the hating party” and it’s hurting the president’s ability to function with Congress. Squawk Box co-anchor Joe Kernen blasted the media for unequivocal support of Democrat obstruction of President Donald Trump’s economic agenda. He specifically criticized the liberal press for ignoring one Congresswoman’s impeachment obsession. In his view, the hatred the liberal media exhibited towards former President George W. Bush looked like a “love relationship” compare to coverage of Trump.

On Thursday's At This Hour With Kate Bolduan, Virginia Representative Dave Brat called out CNN and the rest of the media. In an interview about last Friday's failure to repeal and replace ObamaCare in the House, the Republican congressman and House Freedom Caucus (HFC) member ruled that "It's always the mainstream media, et cetera, likes to hit conservatives."

On Wednesday night, our friends at The Right Scoop were all over conservative talk radio host and CRTV personality Mark Levin ripping into former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas and the liberal media for censoring Farkas’s “smoking gun” admission that the Trump team were in fact surveilled.

Imagine CBS goading Barack Obama to work with House Republicans in 2016 to repeal ObamaCare? Doesn’t seem likely, right? Well, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell on Thursday pressed Paul Ryan as to whether he is working with Nancy Pelosi on health care. Talking to the Speaker of the House in an “exclusive” interview, O’Donnell demanded, “Have you reached out to the Democrats yet to work on this bill? Pelosi?”

The liberal ladies at The View invited former Obama senior campaign advisor David Axelrod on the show Thursday, apparently just to bash Trump for how horrible his first 100 days in office have been going. Axelrod, who now works as a political analyst for CNN, was warmly welcomed by the panel who gushed just a month ago that his former boss was their “favorite president.”

Two Associated Press reporters appear to have officially joined the "resistance." In late February, the wire service released an "exclusive" covering a "draft" document leaked by someone in the Department of Homeland Security not reflecting the agency's official position. In mid-March, two judges used that AP dispatch — while ignoring readily available contradictory and genuinely authoritative information, as well as inconvenient information in the "draft" document itself — to justify preventing President Donald Trump's second attempt at a temporary travel ban involving six countries from taking effect.

On CNN's New Day, Thursday, Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley blasted Republicans for filling the vacant Supreme Court seat with Neil Gorsuch and for not allowing Obama nominee Merrick Garland a hearing last year. Instead of challenging the Democrat, such as citing polls which show Democrats oppose blocking Gorsuch, co-host Alisyn Camerota let Merkley rant about what he called a "terrible precedent."

Repercussions from the clash between White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and journalist April Ryan on Tuesday, March 28, continued to be felt the following day, when MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing hosted a discussion on the incident and the definition of racism. The argument began when Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and a white man, stated that Spicer’s comments were not an example of racism before Jason Johnson, a political columnist and an African-Ameican male, shot back: “You don’t get to tell other people what racism is!”

According to many liberal journalists, normal is abnormal and respectable is scorn-worthy. On March 29, Washington Post’s Ashley Parker published a piece about the close-knit relationship between Mike Pence and his wife Karen. Midway through her article, Parker noted that the Vice President made it a rule to never eat alone with any woman besides his wife.

When it comes to Planned Parenthood, the liberal media have a selective memory, or rather, a selective agenda. Even if that means, it would seem, hiding innocent blood shed from the American public. While the networks covered (and twisted) the news of California’s recent charges against the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), they refused to report on the group’s latest video – a video that suggests some Planned Parenthood abortionists kill babies who survive attempted abortion.
