Washington Post writer Lisa Bonos interviewed leftist actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin about their Netflix show Grace & Frankie, where the two women become friends after their husbands run off with each other. Bonos wanted to hammer on the argument that TV executives (or audiences) can't handle female sexual pleasure on the boob tube. This led Fonda to extol the benefits of masturbation for the fairer sex in the AARP demographic.

With the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch just days away and the possibly of Republicans nuking the filibuster looming, NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed as though he was in a near panic on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Besides his declarations of the GOP continuing the Senate’s decent down the “slippery slope” of removing the filibuster, Todd pestered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate to hold a vote for former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland.

A Wednesday Fox & Friends segment exposed the glaring double standard the establishment press has shown in its treatment of California Representative Devin Nunes's visit to the White House grounds, i.e., not the White Houe itself, to view intelligence information. Meanwhile, hundreds of visits to actual high-up White House officials and to the President himself during the Obama administration, including many by the Russian ambassador himself, as well as people who would appear to have had underhanded reasons for visiting, got little or no notice.

ABC’s This Week went off the rails Sunday morning as fill-in host Martha Raddatz assaulted U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley with ridiculous questions about Russia, and at one point insinuated that she doesn’t speak for the U.S. “And you mentioned this. President Trump has said he respects Putin. But you say you don't trust him. You've said the U.S. needs to take hacking seriously. President Trump has been dismissive of it,” Raddatz prefaced before chided, “Which one of you should our allies and adversaries believe?”

With each passing day, the Russia story seems to balloon and grow a whole new facet for the media to talk about. During NBC’s Sunday Today, fill-in host Hallie Jackson noted how it was wearing down the President. “President Trump is calling this Russia story 'fake news,' you've got Republicans like Lindsey Graham now saying they're not going to ease up on this investigation. New revelations about Mike Flynn,” she stated before asking Chuck Todd, “Let me put it this way, its opening day in baseball, so what inning are we in with this Russia story, Chuck? What do you think?”

The Wrap reports Tina Fey made fun of Mike and Karen Pence at a Friday night fundraiser for the terrorist-defending American Civil Liberties Union.
"Right now it's not just about fighting for progress," Fey said. "Gains we've made over the last hundred years are under attack. Luckily, Mike Pence isn't allowed to go down and shut down Planned Parenthood unless his wife goes with him. So, you know, if we can just keep Karen busy scrapbooking, we can all still get pap smears."

When it comes to media portrayal, the LGBT community has one mission: promoting complete and total acceptance. Tolerance is no longer enough. No surprise then that GLAAD's 2017 Media Awards Show theme is "Accelerating Acceptance."

On Thursday New York Times reporter Somini Sengupta “reported” on United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley’s criticizing the United Nations in a speech to that international body, in “American Envoy Calls U.N. Human Rights Council ‘Corrupt.’” The text box: “Praising the U.S. and assailing a panel without evidence.” From the start it read less like a news report than a line-by-line hostile fact-check: "The American envoy to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, described the United States on Wednesday as the “moral conscience” of the world, and she dismissed the United Nations Human Rights Council as “so corrupt” without offering evidence."

Count on The Washington Post to wallow perpetually in its own Watergate myth. When they were trying to take down President Nixon, it somehow wasn’t a liberal power grab and a way to crumble the Vietnam War. It was all a noble crusade for “truth,” because Democrats never lied to win an election or to….start the Vietnam War.
The latest salvo is an op-ed by leftist actor-activist Robert Redford reminding the Post readership that Redford was so impressed with Woodward and Bernstein that he made a movie out of their self-promoting Journalistic Hero story. The Post headline read: “Robert Redford: 45 years after Watergate, the truth is again in danger.”

The term “dumb down” and its variants apparently didn’t exist until the late 1920s or early 1930s. Rolling Stone’s Taibbi suggested in the cover story of the magazine’s April 6 issue that the dumbing-down of America may be complete before the expression is a century old, and that President Trump deserves a huge share of the blame. Taibbi declared that Trump is “transforming not our laws but our consciousness, one shriveling brain cell at a time…A president like Trump can have an impact even if he never manages to get a single law passed, simply by unleashing stupidity as a revolutionary force.”

As father and son comedy writers and liberal activists Carl Reiner and Rob Reiner appeared as guests on Friday's Tavis Smiley Show on PBS, the two lamented that former President Barack Obama -- whom Carl called "the smartest President we've had since way back" -- was replaced by President Donald Trump -- whom Rob derided as "clearly mentally unstable." A bit later, Rob Reiner blamed "racism" that was "unleashed" after Obama's election for the Republican-controlled Senate blocking him from appointing Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, as he seemed to tie in birtherism and declared that "all of that is about delegitimizing an African-American person and everything that's followed from that."

Unsurprisingly, Politico isn’t interested in the news that Americans support Neil Gorsuch by a wide margin. As Matthew Balan at Mediaite noted on Wednesday, the liberal website buried the revelation that Americans support the judge by a 21 point margin.

A recent official tweet from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is not an April Fools Day joke. In full context, it's not even funny, because it's part of a long campaign by an utterly unhinged mob to shut down entire industries. Specifically, that March 31 PETA tweet claims that milk is an awful thing because it "has long been a symbol used by white supremacists."

Amy Schumer's exit from the Barbie movie demands the kind of follow up questions reporters should ask. So why won't they? So Hollywood’s preeminent feminist won’t be playing Barbie on the big screen after all. We recently learned comedienne Amy Schumer decided against starring in the film version of the beloved Mattel toy.
