Secretary of Defense James Mattis made a visit to Afghanistan Monday, where he and General John Nicholson stated that a top U.S. adversary was backing the Taliban. “9,000 U.S. troops are on the ground trying to help the Afghan army hold back a resurgent Taliban,” announced Anchor Scott Pelley during CBS Evening News, “But the job is getting tougher by the day thanks in part to Moscow.” The revelation was chilling considering U.S. troop could be coming up against those weapons, and it went unreported on ABC and NBC that evening.

Former President Barack Obama made his first public appearance at the University of Chicago on Monday, where the liberal media championed his return. “Meantime tonight, we're hearing from former President Obama speaking out in his first public event since leaving office, jumping back into the spotlight and a lot of attention focused on what he would say about his successor, President Trump,” hyped Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News.

New on April 24: HBO’s Bill Maher, citing “climate change,” noxiously equated Bashir al-Assad using gas to murder his citizens with pollution from U.S. industry: “We talk about Assad gassing people, we’re gassing them, too. We’re just doing it slower with CO2.”

In a book review for Sunday’s print edition The Washington Post, The Atlantic’s Emma Green tore into Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) new book This Is Our Fight for neglecting to grapple with the Democratic Party’s many issues following its 2016 election debacle and failing to understand why blue collar Americans backed President Trump.

“It has been the most hostile, most negative reaction to a new president that I can remember, and I’ve been doing this for more than 30 years,” MRC Research Director Rich Noyes told Fox and Friends Saturday host Abby Huntsman. Noyes was on Fox to discuss the recent MRC study which revealed that network evening news show coverage of President Trump in his first 80 days in office has been an astounding 89 percent negative.

The journalists on CBS This Morning, Monday, goaded John Kasich to attack Donald Trump, lauding the moderate Republican governor. Democratic donor Gayle King, who vacations with Barack Obama, lobbed this softball: “You believe that historians will scratch their heads and look at this election as a tipping point. What will they see?”

On Monday, MSNBC decided to mark President Trump’s first 100 days in office by conducting panel discussion with left-wing celebrities, activists, and politicians in which they all shared how disgusted they were with the new administration. Correspondent Chris Jansing led the group therapy session and proclaimed that “Donald Trump has lit a fire under the Democratic base.”

Left-wing filmmaker Josh Fox launched his latest film, Awake, a Dream from Standing Rock, online April 22 — after it premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Predictably, liberal media including Reuters, The Washington Post and The Hollywood Reporter heralded the movie and ignored inaccuracies of his earlier, biased documentaries attacking the oil and gas industry. The film was called “timely,” and “powerful.” Fox was even credited for his “deep understanding of pipelines” and for getting in the way of the indigenous people telling their story.

After a series of phony “hate crimes” supposedly inspired by Donald Trump’s election, the liberal media obsession with uncovering an epidemic of anti-immigrant violence in Trump’s America has died down somewhat. But on Monday, Geeta Anand reported from Mumbai that the coverage of alleged racial and ethnic attacks in the United States has had an effect -- though of course Anand blamed Trump, not her media colleagues: “For Indians, America Under Trump Is a Land of Vanished Opportunity."

If you want to read something crazy, look no further than the New York Times opinion section. The paper actually published an editorial Monday morning that outright denied free speech applied to anyone who wasn’t a liberal. In his appalling article, “What ‘Snowflakes’ Get Right About Free Speech,” New York University professor Ulrich Baer argued that conservatives are simply wrong about what free speech means, and that protesters who censored conservative or otherwise “offensive” guest speakers were actually protecting free speech.

Although many in the media praise abortion, some Hollywood and sports stars are starting a new pro-life trend: celebrating their unborn babies on social media. Serena Williams is the latest to join the team. Serena Williams is the latest to join the team. On Monday, world-famous tennis player posted an Instagram picture of herself lounging at the beach.

Despite hopes that he would break with political precedent, Donald Trump failed to call the Armenian Genocide by name in today's commemoration of the atrocity. As the descendent of Armenian immigrants, I’m beyond disappointed. When government and media fail to label genocide with the “g-word,” it minimizes the calculating nature of the act. Sadly, there has been a trend in this direction.

The website Snopes.com still advertises itself as the “oldest and largest fact-checking site on the Internet,” so I was puzzled when a Snopes researcher contacted NewsBusters about something that really wasn’t a fact check. It was a gaffe check. On Sunday, Snopes posted an article about an MSNBC analyst’s tweet: “Did a Counterterrorism Expert Call For ISIS to Bomb a Trump Building? Malcolm Nance's tweet was taken out of context in a ‘viral game of telephone’.”
Nance tweeted about the Trump Tower in Istanbul: “This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property.” There is nothing in this tweet that is a “fact” to check. Nance was “nominating” a property for suicide bombing.

The liberal media are all about covering what they call the “war on women” and their “reproductive rights.” But the broadcast networks have remained silent on a U.S. case of female genital mutilation – even as it progresses. Earlier this month, the Justice Department publicized charges against Michigan Doctor Jumana Nagarwala for performing female genital mutilation (FGM) on girls between 6 and 8-years-old. Now, two others have been arrested in connection to what is “believed to be the first case brought under” U.S. federal law that forbids FGM.

The April 21 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “Women That Are Strong Are Fun” brought another Trump bash-a-thon which included a trip to Paris to bash Trump with some French voters. But Chelsea Handler seemed especially deranged about Trump advisor Steve Bannon.
