Tim Tebow’s home run in his first professional baseball at-bat was an electric moment for many sports fans and media. Not for Shannon Sharpe though. The co-host of The Undisputed on Fox Sports 1 complained Friday that Tebow shouldn’t even be allowed to play baseball.

On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher demonized newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch as a "right-wing asshole," a "Scalia clone," and someone who "has never shown any empathy toward a human being" before suggesting that "back alley abortions" might return. He also accused Republicans of "cheating" to get him onto the Court, and of being motivated by racism in refusing to support former President Barack Obama's call for military action in Syria in 2013.

In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many of us.”

The liberal media was overjoyed Thursday, by the fact that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was recusing himself from his committee’s Russian influence investigation after he discussed evidence with the press. The media weren’t so keen on similar calls for the ranking Democrat on the Committee, Adam Schiff to do the same after he opened up to the press about what evidence he had seen. During ABC’s This Week, moderator George Stephanopoulos teed-up Schiff to combat those demands.

On April 9, 2016, the Boston Globe journalists imagined the horrific, dark future world of April 9, 2017. The Globe put together a fake news front cover with Donald Trump as president. One year later, the headlines haven’t aged well. This headline slimed Trump: “U.S. soldiers refuse orders to kill ISIS families.”

In a panel discussion at NeueHouse in Hollywood after the show’s official Television Academy Emmy screening, “Homeland” actors and creators commented on the reasons why season six has taken a different turn and tune, mainly due to “fake news,” the election, and trying to right the self-perceived “wrongs” of what they felt was the promotion of Islamophobia in the first five seasons.
As a way to try and combat that criticism, season six was created as a way to stop being “part of the problem” and be “part of the cure.”

The Wednesday, April 5, episode of ABC’s conspiracy drama, Designated Survivor, may as well have been written by the Brady Campaign, or any one of Michael Bloomberg’s consortium of anti-Second Amendment organizations. For those unfamiliar with Kiefer Sutherland’s new role as President Tom Kirkman, he seems to have done a complete 180 from his days as 24’s Jack Bauer.

Twice in the last few days, MSNBC hosts have allowed guests to hyperbolically make unfounded claims of bigotry against White House advisor Steve Bannon, with former MSNBC contributor Michelle Bernard calling him an "avowed anti-Semite" on Wednesday's Hardball, and current MSNBC contributor Howard Dean calling him a "white supremacist" who "hates Jews" on Saturday's AM Joy. AM Joy host Joy Reid went along with Dean's smear, and Hardball host Chris Matthews, who initially seemed skeptical of his guest's claim, then backed off and let it go.

It was the interview that went horribly off the rails for CNN's Brooke Baldwin on the April 7 edition of Newsroom. Her guest via Skype from Syria was a 2013 chemical attack survivor Kassem Eid who two days earlier pleaded for help from President Donal Trump on her show. He returned yesterday which is when he went way off the CNN message by not only heaping effusive praise upon Trump for his missile attack response but also strongly rejecting the premise inserted by Baldwin in a prepared Hillary Clinton clip that the president was hypocritical because of his refugee policy.

The establishment press, even as it works to censor known but inconvenient facts and shout down or constantly interrupt guests who attempt to present them, continually lectures new media, particularly center-right media, about the need for evidence before reporting or even discussing anything in print or on the air. There's hardly a better illustration of what a hypocritical stance this is than Lawrence O'Donnell's wild theory, recklessly speculated on Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show on Friday, that Vladimir Putin "might have orchestrated what happened in Syria this week" to benefit "his friend in the White House," Donald Trump.

Is this the most outrageous Trump-related Tweet to come out of Hollywood so far? The #resistance has no greater friend than Joss Whedon. The director of The Avengers is one of Hollywood’s most vocal critics of the Trump administration. He did all he could to stop the real estate mogul from becoming president.

As many media outlets jettison journalistic standards by blatantly promoting and celebrating the LGBT movement, NBCNews.com’s pro-LGBTQ propaganda arm “NBC OUT” recently announced that it will create a “#Pride30 List” for “Pride Month” this June.

In a week where we’re getting a new Supreme Court justice, the alt-left has been supremely insane. They have moved into a complete panic about the world, blaming the end to their filibuster on divisive Republicans. Somehow they seem to forget a bit of the Supreme injustice they’ve inflicted on various right-leaning nominees. Does the term “Borking” remind you of something?

The president’s daughter answered Gayle King on CBS This Morning like a politician: “If being complicit means wanting to be a force for good and wanting to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit.” Hours later, CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert pulled out a dictionary and read the “illegal/wrongdoing” definition and mocked Ivanka, that it’s like saying “If being a Nazi means fighting for civil rights, then yeah, I’m a huge Nazi!”
In response to the idea that Ivanka will be her father’s “eyes and ears,” feminist TBS host Samantha Bee cracked that the First Daughter will be “spending a lot of time staring at her own boobies.”

As evidence that Donald Trump's presidential campaign, and then his transition team, were under surveillance by the Obama administration for political reasons continues to mount, the stubborn refusal by CNN's Don Lemon to acknowledge this reality is turning into a national joke. Thursday evening, Newsmax's Christopher Ruddy got so exasperated at Lemon's deep state of denial, that he asked: "Don, are you drinking Kool-Aid tonight?"
