Roughly five minutes into MSNBC’s Inauguration coverage, host Brian Williams switched gears from discussing Donald Trump becoming President to mythologizing President Obama for having “elevated the office...improved by touching the office and shown great respect for the office he's the custodian of.”

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Friday lectured viewers that some Americans “fear” Donald Trump and are very “nervous” about his presidency. Face the Nation host John Dickerson insisted that Trump needs to “to offer something to the other side, to recognize the fear.”

On the morning of Donald Trump’s inauguration, ABC spent a few minutes legitimizing the 60+ Democrats boycotting Trump as a sign of a “divided nation.” Contrast that with eight years ago, when the networks were giddy and gushing about how great Obama’s presidency was for the country.

New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica transparently sounded like an angry Democrat in reviewing the concert titled the "Making America Great Again! Welcome Celebration." He began by complaining that the Trump organizers didn't even ask rapper Kanye West to appear, despite his kind words for Trump.

Instead, Caramanica uncorked a classic leftist attack, that the event "veered between jingoism and vaudevillian fluff and largely ignored the contribution of African-Americans to popular music (which is to say, almost all of popular music)."

If we know anything about Hollywood celebrities, it’s that their understanding of constitutional law is matched only by their stalwart vigilance against subversion and treachery.

Say what you want about MSNBC's Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough, but he offered advice for liberal journalists in the Trump era on Friday seeing as how “[t]he media is still trying to figure out how to handle him” with cases like Martin Luther King III having an anti-Trump “speech shouted to him instead of a question.”

On Friday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer revealed his biggest fear regarding the upcoming Inauguration of Donald Trump: “I don't want to put ideas in anyone's mind, but hypothetically speaking, you have his core supporters out on the mall, and they’re going to be listening to his speech, and they’re going to look up on that podium, or next to it, and see Hillary Clinton....And what are the fears that they may react in a vocal way toward her, mimicking some of the things that have been said during the campaign?”

NBA star-activists may be hip, but they’re also depressed about the change of leadership in Washington. As they pout over Barack Obama’s departure from the White House, a writer for the left-leaning Bleacher Report is encouraging them to lead reprisals against President Trump and white, far-right Americans who voted him into the Oval Office.

On the morning of Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009, ABC’s Good Morning America team called it, “A new dawn...fueled by hope and the shared dreams of a renewed America.” But on the morning of Donald Trump’s inauguration, ABC didn’t have the same rosy outlook. Instead of the utopia they predicted would happen under Obama, today ABC claimed the country was going back to the Civil War era.

After making headlines with her Christmas ballad “Trump’s Nuts Roasting over an Open Fire,” singer Fiona Apple is at it again. This time, she’s prepping for the Women’s March on Washington with the chant “Tiny Hands.”

Free speech is a concept lost on liberals. Left-wing Fusion proved that the morning of the presidential inauguration by asking Twitter to delete the account of the president elect.

The network, run by top Hillary funder Haim Saban, responded to a Trump Tweet with a video calling for Trump’s account to be shut down. The video features Romina Puga, host of Fusion Now saying the president elect should be banned for “repeatedly violating Twitter’s terms of service.” The site went so far as to call for Trump to be banned again if he used the official @Potus account in ways Fusion didn’t like.

In the last week the liberal media have been coming to grips with the end of the Barack Obama administration, as they’ve thrown a few last bouquets at the feet of their hero. From The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank wistfully wondering “For a man who achieved so much, Obama...must be wondering where the gratitude is?” to one last thrill for Chris Matthews “To say that no person can make a difference, I give you the fine case of that fine man, Barack Obama” the following is a collection of the media’s melancholic goodbyes to Obama.

As Donald Trump is inaugurated the 45th president today, it’s not likely that the three networks will suggest that seagulls were “awed” by the “sacred” event, one that “pilgrims” trekked to Washington to see. But that happened on January 20, 2009 as Barack Obama became the 44th president. ABC, CBS and NBC reporters were beside themselves and compared the event to a religious experience.

With President-elect Donald Trump set to take the oath of office in less than a day, CBS Evening News ended Thursday with anchor Scott Pelley turning the microphone over to former anchor Bob Schieffer to pontificate about how he imagines President Barack Obama. “In the early days, most Americans never saw their presidents or even their likenesses,” he began his gushy rambling, “In the modern era, we can't avoid them.”

NBC closed out Thursday’s edition of Nightly News with an over-the-top tribute to President Barack Obama where they dubbed him ‘father-in-chief.’ “President Obama prepares to leave the White House, he's written a letter to the American people thanking them for making him, quote ‘a better man,’” touted anchor Lester Holt, “In the past, he’s also said the presidency has made him a better dad.” Reporter Chris Jansing dug up old photographs of the president as she hyped the hashtag #ObamaAndKids.
