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.

On Wednesday morning, CNN political analyst David Gregory trashed those who dared to question the media’s hysterical coverage of the Trump administration. Unsurprisingly, he continued to practice his favorite past time of pushing false narratives. On CNN’s New Day, he at first went directly at the President: “you have the President of the United States demonstrably trying to shut down that investigation. Why? Calling it a hoax. Why?”

Amber Tamblyn wants tolerance. But only her kind of tolerance. A member of the cast of the popular film, “The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants,” and the director of the recently released drama “Paint It Black,” the actress has attempted to describe herself as an activist.

In a recent interview with Bustle writer Rachel Simon, the actress explained how

activism, for her, is about finding acceptance, except for those who “hate me, and hate people I love, and hate people of color, and hate people who are trans.” But she is fed up with “being told to have more understanding for people who don’t agree.”

Liberal Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski showed her hypocrisy on Wednesday, questioning the patriotism of Donald Trump. This from the same woman who previously decried questioning other people’s patriotism. Speaking of the President, she sneered, “I know it is a terrible thing to question someone's patriotism, but you wonder what he cares about.” Joe Scarborough replied saying,“ He's made it perfectly obvious. I think a lot of people that haven known him in the past knew he was self-involved. But to the degree that he cares only about himself...it has been pretty surprising.”

David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon caught this political lede from The Washington Post Wednesday morning, that Pope Francis was the "world's moral counterpoint" to Trump's apparently immoral nationalism: "Pope Francis welcomed President Trump to the cradle of Roman Catholicism on Wednesday, delivering a message of peace even as the pontiff emphasized his role as the world’s moral counterpoint to the president’s nationalist agenda."

So how did the Post start its story when Obama met Francis at the Vatican in 2014? Was he the "world's moral counterpoint to the president's abortion agenda"? Of course not.

According to Matt Lauer, the murderous fictional president portrayed by Kevin Spacey on the Netflix series  House of Cards is “tame” in comparison to Donald Trump’s presidency. Interviewing the actor on Wednesday’s NBC Today, Lauer wondered: “...did you ever imagine that there would come a time in real-life politics that would make the plot lines of your show seem tame?”

When it’s left-wing Vox, every incident is about agenda -- sometimes with hilarious results. Soon after an impaired driver killed an 18-year-old-girl in Times Square May 18, Vox writer German Lopez wrote a think piece condemning drunken driving and criticizing the media for disproportionately covering terrorism. Lopez has a long history of being pro-marijuana, so attacking alcohol fit his pattern.

Donald Trump’s first year in office isn’t even half over but the liberal media is ready to bury it. Journalists went crazy over the James Comey dismissal with constant comparisons to Watergate.  CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin called it “A grotesque abuse of power...the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies.” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews opined that the move had a “whiff of fascism.” His colleague Mika Brzezinski went as far as to declare the Trump administration “over.”

The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha took the liberal media to task Tuesday night, most notably CNN and MSNBC, for putting off the Manchester terror attack to squeeze in more time for Trump and Russia. “And look, there are some numbers around this that are just stunning. 105 minutes during the 7:00 P.M. hour,” he said during his appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. “This according to [a Media Research Center] study, was spent on Trump and Russia on CNN and MSNBC. Just 50 minutes [for the attack].”
