During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers early Wednesday morning, CBS This Morning anchor Gayle King expressed surprise at being called the “dishonest media.” Meyers asked King about the news networks meeting with Donald Trump on Monday morning, where Trump reportedly called the journalists in attendance, the “dishonest media.” King said the characterization made her “uncomfortable” but she felt that Trump wasn’t talking about her network.

After Donald Trump’s victory Nov. 8, several business leaders freaked. The post-election response even included a CEO’s threat on Trump’s life, but none of the major broadcast evening news shows picked up the hysteria. Business leaders despaired, told employees to resign for disagreeing with their virulently anti-Trump views and warned of “extremely dangerous times.” But threatening violence and intimidating employees for their political views apparently wasn’t newsworthy for the networks.

During the campaign, the liberal news media did everything they could to prevent Donald Trump’s election, but he won anyway. Now, journalists are trashing the way Trump is handling his transition, as well as his early Cabinet picks. But eight years ago, viewers heard a very different tone coming from the media, as journalists celebrated the election of Barack Obama, cheered the “brain power” of the “team of geniuses” he was assembling for his Cabinet, and tingled over how “cool” Obama seemed as he assumed the responsibilities of office.

Liberals are struggling with the idea that elections have consequences. Sometimes those consequences include repealing regulations and policies of the previous administration.

For the past eight years, Obama and liberal environmentalists claimed that harsh regulations were essential to combat disastrous amounts of global warming. But now that Donald Trump is president-elect, Media groups, from left-wing nonprofits like Mother Jones and Grist, to for-profit outlets like The New York Times and Newsweek, are petrified for the environment.

"Woke" white people making snide remarks about accusations of police brutality seems to be a theme this week. Tuesday’s episode of Fox’s Scream Queens titled “Blood Drive” included an anti-cop throwaway line at the beginning of the show.

Dear Mr. President-Elect:
 
Everyone else is giving you advice, so why can’t we? (Then again, last time you asked our advice, we told you over lunch that winning was not in the cards, so you might be hitting the delete button before this sentence is complete.)

ABC’s World News Tonight went to town Tuesday evening, as they fanned the flames of fear over potential conflicts of interest between President-Elect Donald Trump’s businesses and his presidential duties. “With growing concerns tonight, about how he continues to push his business ventures, Donald Trump told The New York Times, ‘The law is on my side. The president can't have a conflict of interest,’” fretted ABC’s Chief investigative Correspondent Brain Ross. But such concern over conflicts of interest were scant when they covered Hillary Clinton pre-election.

CNN continued to try and tie Donald Trump to a gathering of neo-Nazis that occurred in Washington DC over the weekend, during Tuesday’s edition of The Lead. That’s even after the president-elect denounced to group on the record with The New York Times. “And earlier today Donald Trump disavowed a neo-Nazi hate group in a way that he had until now failed to do,” pooh poohed CNN’s Jim Sciutto, “That is directly and explicitly denouncing a white supremacist organization that spewed anti-Semitic viol and racist vitriol…”

Disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather was at it again on Tuesday pontificating on Facebook as he urged Americans and particularly journalists to rise up and not “remain seated or silent” against concerning aspects of President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda and neo-Nazis saluting Trump’s win (in another attempt to normalize their line of hate through free media).

Yet more evidence of a world turned upside down since Donald Trump won the presidency and charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation predictably plummeted -- National Public Radio is no longer a safe space for liberals to opine.

At least it wasn't early today for former congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts, one of the main architects of the housing bubble that brought down the economy a decade ago and a man who has surprisingly managed to remain out of prison for his role in the debacle.

At a Sunday press briefing in Lima, Peru, President Barack Obama concluded his response to a question referring to how President-Elect Trump might consider handling his extensive holdings during his presidency by saying that "I am extremely proud of the fact that over eight years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations."

Well this is a tad bit hypocritical.  It turns out many cast members of the Broadway hit show Hamilton – the same cast who delivered what they called a “message of love” to Vice President-elect Mike Pence – hasn’t voted in years. Like the protesters and rioters in the streets, it's funny those who demand more democracy and lament their great anxiety didn't manage to participate.

During Barack Obama's final overseas trip as the president of America, the outgoing Democrat sat down for an interview with German reporters in a discussion that ranged from the victory of Republican President-Elect Donald Trump to the likelihood that many items in the Democrat's legacy will be reversed when he leaves the White House.

The first question in the interview by Klaus Brinkbaumer and Sonia Seymour Mikich was: “Donald Trump won the election, revealing massive discontent and rifts within American society. Did the amount of anger actually surprise you?”

As part of its rearguard attack against the “fake news” it thinks cost Hillary Clinton the election, New York Times reporter Cecilia Kang made the front of Tuesday’s Business Day with “Fact Check: This Pizzeria Is Not a Child-Trafficking Site.” Kang’s supportive article profiled James Alefantis, a pizzeria owner in D.C. and a mover and shaker in Democratic circles, whose restaurant was victimized by a sinister political hoax on social media. But the paper’s sympathy and interest in such victims of fake news are rather selective. The Times never printed a headline back in April 2015 that said: “This Pizzeria Does Not Hate Gays” when an innocent pizza place outside of South Bend was getting the full social media condemnation from the left, threats, phony reviews and all, all based on a phony premise.
