Ohio governor and failed presidential candidate John Kasich had his new book, Two Paths: America Divided or United, published on April 25 and after just the first week it has already sunk beneath the waves of public disinterest to #264 as of this writing on Amazon. It doesn't take any great genius to figure out that he thinks President Donald Trump represents the "Divided" while the son of a mailman is somehow the enlightened "United."

Saturday’s New York Times featured the paper unwittingly showing its anti-Trump tilt, with a full page "story' featuring the first 99 days of headlines from its coverage of the Trump Administration, in “(Almost) 100 Days Of Front Page Headlines About No. 45.” While the Times obviously thinks its headlines stand by themselves as some objective and reliable historical recording of the ebb and flow of the Trump Administration, in fact the word, subject, and tonal choices reveal a political double standard.

CNN's New Day Sunday gave an unchallenged forum to a group of children who are plaintiffs in an environmental lawsuit alleging that the federal government and fossil fuel industry are in "violation of the fundamental constitutional rights of young people and all future generations." As two of the children and one legal counsel -- Julia Olson of Our Children's Trust -- appeared on the show, among other questions, CNN co-host Christi Paul sympathetically posed: "If you could say one thing to the people listening who have questions about what they're causing in the environment, what would you like to say to them today?"

On Saturday, syndicated columnist, blogging pioneer and CRTV.com investigative reporter Michelle Malkin delivered an epic smackdown of the two-faced history of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. She also completely supported President Donald Trump's decision, announced in late February, not to attend the event.

In an almost stunning moment of clarity during Sunday’s Meet the Press, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews admitted in a rant that the media were targeting President Trump. “This president has gale-force winds against him. He comes in with the media killing him every day,” he told NBC moderator Chuck Todd, who was obsessing over the President’s approval numbers. “The New York Times does enterprise pieces, four or five a day against him.”

The Washington Post summarized the latest "inclusion" and "diversity" controversy in the fashion world: "Shea Moisture reaches out to white women in hair products ad. Black women protest."

Many took to social media to blast the company.  One writer expressed the ad a “blatant erasure of African American women who made the brand what it is,” while another said the ad completely discredited the needs of women of color much like the slogan “All Lives Matter,” and the #allhairmatters hashtag popped up in protest.

President Donald Trump sat down with CBS’s John Dickerson for an interview about the first 100 days of his presidency, which aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation. In between talking about the serious topics, the President took shots at the media, including his host. “You know, it is very funny when the fake media goes out, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes I must say is you,” he told Dickerson. “I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation,’ but, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.

On Saturday's AM Joy, viewers could witness a near caricature of a group of liberals talking politics in the form of host Joy Reid, former MSNBC political analyst Jimmy Williams, Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah, and Karine Jean-Pierre of MoveOn.org, as the group pined for "cradle to the grave" guaranteed health care as a "civil right" and fretted "Jim Crow for health care."

TBS’s resident radical leftist Samantha Bee made an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday to speak with her friend/host Jake Tapper about her “alternative” White House Correspondents Dinner. During their discussion, Tapper dredged up a New York Times opinion piece from September 2016 warning Hillary Clinton of her “Samantha Bee problem.” The column notes that not only Bee is the problem but all stuck up liberals as well. Bee laughed and denied such a problem existed.

Most readers of NewsBusters and consumers of cable news are used to liberal media meltdowns since November 8. However, that’s not to say they’re any less enjoyable. Saturday night featured another temper tantrum by CNN with anchors and guests labeling Trump’s 100 Days rally in Pennsylvania a “deeply disturbing” and “stunning” speech by a “moral midget.”

In the minutes leading up to their live coverage of the White House Correspondents Dinner, CNN turned to media reporter Brian Stelter, who caused unintentional laughter when he claimed that the journalists inside the dinner had no political interests in their Trump coverage. They're "just trying to do their best work." He slammed the president's speech Saturday night as "insidious" and "poisonous," even as he admitted it was nothing new. He's perpetually outraged.

During a rally packed with devoted supporters at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, President Donald Trump spent extensive portions of his first 100 days speech torching the news media for their liberal tilt, using facts like the blockbuster April 19 Media Research Center study.

Saturday's CBS Weekend News filed a report in which correspondent Paula Reid fretted that some of the illegal immigrants rounded up for deportation had only been convicted of drunk driving, even though such activity is dangerous criminal behavior that claims the lives of thousands of Americans each year. And, even though the report ran a soundbite of President Donald Trump vowing to deport "drug dealers" and "criminal aliens," Reid seemed to think that deporting nonviolent offenders like drunk drivers was somehow contradicting this promise as she complained that arrests were "raising concerns."

Try though she may -- nay, fight though she persistently fights -- Senator Elizabeth Warren has a branding problem.

Granted, she's doing her darndest to change that. The title of her new book, for example -- "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class." Not the more succinct "This is Our Fight" or, tighter still, "This Fight." Operative word here -- fight. As in, "Fighting the Fight That's Ours to Fight: One Feisty, Fiery Senator Punches Away for America's Embattled Middle Class."

Faith Salie, a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning and a comedic panelist on the snarky NPR game show WaitI Wait! Don't Tell Me!, penned a piece for the fiercely feminist website Jezebel . The headline was "Bill O'Reilly Didn't Harass Me, But His Viewers Did."
