Last week on CNN's "Believer" host Reza Aslan dined on filet of human brain. This week he had to endure the wild rantings of self-described messiah JeZus who, sounding a lot like an updated Charles Manson, claimed that global warming would cause a worldwide flood which is why his Hawaiian-based cult is building an ark. Oh, and unlike the Jesus of a couple thousand years ago, JeZus is also a polytheist who worships Pele among other gods. The interesting thing about JeZus is that, despite his over the top theatrics, his global warming claims don't really sound much different than the standard issue global warming alarmists promoted by the mainstream media such as Bill Nye the Science Guy.

On Monday, the left-wing Norman Lear Center announced the recipients of the 2017 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism. Among the winners was CNN’s Reliable Sources, with the panel of judges praising host Brian Stelter as a “one-man media literacy course” who “faced criticism of the media head on, offering positive solutions to the question of what the media needs to do to gain, and regain, the public’s trust.”

Bias is not always intentional, but when it comes to the media, Hollywood and universities, it’s systematic. In his new book Fault Line, Faithwire senior editor Billy Hallowell examines this triangle of liberal influence and its pervasive impact on American culture today. But he also points out a hard truth—conservatives and Christians are partly to blame for our nation’s “seismic shift” leftward.

On CNN's New Day Monday, co-host Chris Cuomo remarked at the end of a segment about the Republican Party not saying whether or not Americans will lose coverage over their replacement proposal of ObamaCare, ahead of a Congressional Budget Office report expected later Monday regarding the cost to repeal of and the GOP's replacement to the existing health care law, expected to cost $600 billion to do the former through 2026. "Have you heard any Republicans say, 'Nobody will lose coverage under this plan, I promise?' If you haven't there's a reason when the CBO report comes out," he said.

Appearing as a guest on Sunday's CNN Newsroom to promote the latest episode of his series Believer, CNN host Reza Aslan tried to tie recent bomb threats against Jewish community centers to "rhetoric that's coming out of the White House." It was not mentioned that many of the threats are believed by law enforcement to have originated overseas, or that the one man who has been charged for a small portion of them was an anti-Trump liberal.

We are going into the third month of the Donald Trump presidency and the media are still having full-blown panic attacks over him. The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman was so terrified by Trump’s early morning tweeting that he suggested that the “nuclear codes” be taken away from the President. MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski moaned: “We are at a low point in American history....We are all really nervous. So, if people out there feel nervous, we do, too.” The following is a compilation of the most recent and ridiculous media meltdowns over Trump:

On Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Girls, “Gummies,” Hannah (Lena Dunham) continues with her decision to keep her baby that she conceived after a very brief fling with a surf instructor while on a writing assignment. The seemingly pro-life storyline is a bit suspect given Dunham’s avid support of abortion and her wish that she could have had one herself (which she later apologized for while stating that she still wants to remove the “stigma” surrounding the controversial procedure.)

In the latest spin-off of NBC’s Chicago series, Chicago Justice, the show shockingly took a shot at liberal sacred cow Ted Kennedy.

The liberal media has waged a rather pathetic war against what they deem “fake news” since the November election, and Showtime’s Homeland seems quick to offer its support. Not content with simply parodying a right-wing media host, the episode is a little too eager to pretty much call him a liar.

In the most recent episode of CBS’s Madam Secretary, titled “Break in Diplomacy,” Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) punches Philippine President Andrada in the face during a weapons package negotiation in response to his ass-grabbing move, doing to him what liberals wish Madam Secretary Hillary Clinton could do to President Trump.

The topic of gun control is certainly a controversial one in the news today, but the fact remains our right to bear arms is upheld by the Second Amendment. FOX’s Making History demonstrated just how strongly the Founding Fathers loved their “gunnys” and refused to hand them to the British.

On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid spent a couple of minutes fretting over the results of a recent Democratic mayoral primary in black-majority St. Louis in which a white Democrat endorsed by the local police union managed to win the primary because black voters were divided amongst several black candidates.

Following the trail of angry liberals on social media, Jack Healy in Sunday’s New York Times attacked a comment by Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah suggesting people should invest in their own health care instead of buying the new IPhone. Healy defended the necessity of having a cell in “Having No Insurance Is Hard, Families Say. No Phone? Unthinkable.” Healy even found a racial angle, even though President Barack Obama has used the same cell phone talking point in the past. Needless to say, the president wasn’t accused of anti-black racism.

An irony-ignorant skit on the March 11 edition of Saturday Night Live featured a parody commercial portraying Ivanka Trump promoting a perfume called "Complicit." Washington Post writer Aaron Blake covered the episode in an alleged "Analysis" blog post, yet managed to ignore the February success of Ivanka's product line despite a declared leftist boycott and Nordstrom dropping her brand.

Variety film critic Owen Gleiberman sounded a little like Chris Matthews when he "felt a shiver of anticipation" at the new "Trump-timed" Steven Spielberg movie project, mythologizing The Washington Post in 1971 pushing to expose the "Pentagon Papers" to underline the "futility" of the Vietnam War, which Gleiberman proclaimed part of the "liberal catechism."
Gleiberman hoped "If there’s a new wave of movies that matter, it won’t just mean freedom-fighting media/political dramas like The Post." He complained political movies like this are seen as elite-cinema Oscar bait, not as profit-makers.
