PBS liberal Bill Moyers is upset at CNN for not being hostile enough to Republicans. The host offered a diatribe on February 8 praising the cable network for allegedly banning Kellyanne Conway. He inaccurately hailed, “Bravo to Jake Tapper and CNN for saying, ‘No!’ to Kellyanne Conway when the White House offered her up as a guest for his Sunday program.” But, then Conway did appear and Moyers wasn’t happy.

The group called SNAP – the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests – disparaged Pope Francis meeting with victims on his American trip as an empty public-relations gesture, a dodge. On CNN, SNAP spokesman Manny Vega demanded that if the pope “wants to put an end to this, he has to be completely transparent, allow the names to go unredacted, allow the files -- allow researchers to get into the Vatican files and take a look at everything that's happened. There has to be complete disclosure.”
But CNN and the other television networks haven’t touched the amazing story of the shoe going on the other foot in the last few weeks. Suddenly, SNAP is falling apart after a lawsuit alleging they were funded largely by kickbacks for contingency-fee attorneys extracting billions of dollars in settlements.

Friday’s “big three” network evening newscasts showed no remorse when it came to Republican members of Congress being shouted down and blasted by angry, liberal protesters, gushing over how the GOP is “feeling the wrath” of “demonstrators flooding” their events. Of course, this was in contrast to how the media perceived Tea Party groups challenged members of Congress beginning in 2009 as the media gave it their best effort to denounce and vilify them.

On Friday, the three network evening newscasts covered the verbal beating Education Secretary Betsy DeVos took hours earlier as she was physically blocked from entering a Washington D.C. public school by protesters. However, each catered to the far-left protesters, emphasizing how DeVos is a “controversial” “billionaire who has promoted charter schools.”

Exactly three weeks after its kickoff on Inauguration Day, Shia Labeouf's anti-Trump livestream camera project has been shut down today by the Museum of the Moving Image in the Astoria section of Queens, NY. Yes, you will no longer be able to see leftists robotically chanting "He will not divide us" over and over again. Even more importantly, you will also no longer be able to laugh as Trump supporters often hilariously mocked those same leftists.

Hitting a journalistic nadir, the New York Times ran a deeply silly environmental piece by Tatiana Schlossberg (aka Caroline Kennedy’s daughter), “Trump Has Choices to Make on Climate Policy – What Would You Do?” written in the condescending style of a choose-your-own-adventure story at a 6th-grade reading level.

On Friday’s NBC Today, political analyst Nicolle Wallace seemed surprised that Trump voters had not yet abandoned their support of the President. After talking to some of his backers in Erie County, Pennsylvania, Wallace proclaimed: “If you're looking for buyers' remorse, you won't find it here.”

On Friday, the journalists at Morning Joe hinted that an infraction by staffer Kellyanne Conway could somehow ultimately lead to impeachment. The hosts spent a large chunk of time discussing a TV appearance in which Conway suggested people buy from Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. Joe Scarborough compared, “One of Bill Clinton's, by the way, articles of impeachment by a Republican Congress, is for abusing his office.”

Commenting Friday afternoon on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos being berated and prevented from entering a Washington D.C. public school, a Washington Post article (via its blog The Fix) brushed it aside as merely example of how American politics have become “a powder keg” of partisanship.

Twitter is famously one of President Trump’s chosen battlefields, and it’s a hot zone in the new war zone between him and Hollywood. On Wednesday, Trump called Nordstorm “Terrible!” in a tweet after the department-store chain dropped his daughter Ivanka’s brand. In Hollywood-like fashion, big name celebrities, from Chelsea Handler to Judd Apatow, flocked to Nordstrom in support of the store – and shared the news on Twitter.

Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN political commentator Angela Rye tried to be the latest liberal to argue against President Donald Trump's travel ban targeting several Muslim countries on the basis that supposedly no one from those countries has committed a terrorist attack in the U.S. After being called out by fellow panel member Kayleigh McEnany, who cited recent attacks by Somali refugees, Rye then switched to asserting that there have not been any deaths from such attacks in the U.S. as if being wounded does not matter so much.

Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe conducted a press conference at the White House on Friday in which all liberal three networks were not chosen to ask questions. ABC didn’t even bother to cover the event live. Only CBS and NBC broke in. Instead, Trump called on Daniel Halper of the New York Post and Blake Burman of Fox News. Prime Minister Abe took questions from Japanese reporters.

Throughout the day on Friday, CNN touted video of angry protesters at congressional Republican town halls in Tennessee and Utah to prove that it might be the emergence of a possible “tea party of the left.” In the process, it showed a stunning dose of sudden respect after how they and their media cohorts treated the tea party when it arrived on scene in 2009 and 2010.

Friday’s The View was even more unbearable to watch with the addition of feminist exhibitionist Lena Dunham to the panel. Of course Dunham talked about the election but not without condescendingly lecturing to the “white women” who voted for Trump to listen to their feminist elders who know better. Dunham also bashed these women as selfish and implied they had abusive male family members who made them tolerate Trump’s comments about women.

A show called Dear White People (debuting next week on Netflix) must aim to foster racial understanding and focus on what unites Americans, rather than what divides them. Right? After all it's based on a movie about black students at a prdominently white elite college. Sure it aims to point out the misunderstandings and gently lampoon attitudes from all races that keep us from achieving harmony.
