On Tuesday, the anchors of Morning Joe got into a heated discussion concerning the flaws of the media. Both Scarborough and Brzezinski called out the media for not presenting consumers with the facts alone, constantly asking leading questions, and failing to resist weaving their own opinions into discourse.

As the conversation carried on, Brzezinski became frustrated that most of the media are only able to understand and defend the actions of a Democrat like John Lewis, but not a Republican.

In a rather pointless article published by New York magazine Wednesday evening, associate editor Madison Malone Kircher conducted an amateur forensic analysis of President-elect Donald Trump’s obviously staged speech writing photo, taken at his Mar-a-Lago resort, with the objective to mock it. “Live by Twitter, die by Twitter,” she declared at one point, “Or, at least, have your photographs picked apart on Twitter.” The first suspected atrocity that required Malone Kircher to conduct her “investigation” were questions regarding Trump’s writing implement.

New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg stood up for the government bureaucrats and left-wing paranoids in D.C. and gave them laudatory coverage: "...as Mr. Trump’s inaugural draws near, in a nation so deeply divided that it seems the political middle has entirely disappeared, perhaps no place in America feels as unsteady and on edge as the capital, which Mr. Trump calls 'the swamp.'...With his 6 a.m. Twitter blasts and chaos-sowing style -- and a roster of conservative Cabinet picks eager to do an about-face on President Obama’s policies -- Mr. Trump has upended the city’s rhythms and jangled its nerves."

Featuring climate change films is no longer enough for Sundance. This year, there’s a whole category dedicated to environmental propaganda. Even eco-porn. “For the first time in the history of the festival, Sundance is spotlighting more than a dozen films under one theme with its new Climate Program,” including a hardcore porno with all the sex scenes removed, The Hollywood Reporter wrote on Jan. 18.

David Gergen and Douglas Brinkley gushed over President Barack Obama during a panel discussion on Wednesday's CNN Tonight. Gergen played up the Democrat's defense of the media during his final press conference, and later claimed that Mr. and Mrs. Obama "didn't have a big scandal...That's very rare." Brinkley touted how "the press/media loves Barack Obama right now," and contended that "what's helping Barack Obama's legacy with the press is Donald Trump....By comparison, he's like St. Augustine up there talking to the flock." USA Today's Kirsten Powers countered by spotlighting the chief executive's hostile actions towards the press.

A Thursday report on NBC’s Today featured the on-screen headline: “The Fear of the Unknown; Hispanics & Muslims Look Ahead to New Administration.” Correspondent Gadi Schwartz began the segment by fretting over the fate of illegal immigrants: “Like hundreds of thousands across the country, Perla Berazza was a student with a secret and a constant fear....she qualified for the Deferred Action Childhood Arrival program created by President Obama....But the program, known as DACA, is in the cross-hairs of President-elect Donald Trump.”

On CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday, panelist Van Jones claimed that Trump didn’t deserve Obama’s “silence” after he leaves office, because Trump was going to undo every good thing Obama did as President. “Obama came in to fix things that W. broke. Trump is coming in to break things that Obama fixed,” Jones asserted.

The Trump/Pence administration hasn’t even taken office and CBS is already going negative. CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose on Thursday reminded Vice-President-elect Mike Pence just how unpopular the team would be. He also lectured Pence about social media: “You've been asked this before, I'm sure, are the Tweets, A, necessary, B, distracting? And does [Trump] have to tilt at every windmill that criticizes him?”

Univision's report on President Barack Obama's commutation of the prison sentence of convicted terrorist Oscar Rivera López is an astounding case study in fake news. The story, which went unreported on the evening ABC, CBS and NBC newscasts, took top billing on Tuesday's Univision newscast.

Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, HBO liberal talkshow host Bill Maher came on the show to bash conservatives and call on the media to hold Trump accountable. Without any sense of irony, Maher lectured Kimmel on the need for hosts like him to hold Trump’s “feet to the fire” as if the media gives Trump the adoring Obama treatment. Maher then told Kimmel that the media can’t treat the right the same as the left after this election because one side had gone to “crazytown.”
