Secretary of State John Kerry took to the podium Wednesday and unloaded on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the State of Israel, claiming they were impeding the Middle East peace process. Later on that evening, NBC Nightly News went to bat for Kerry running two reports backing up his assertions. “Kerry painting a dire picture when it comes to reaching a peace deal in the Middle East,” announced fill-in anchor Tamron Hall.

MSNBC host and NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell scored an exclusive interview on Wednesday afternoon with Secretary of State John Kerry following his speech blasting Israel and, not surprisingly, she served up softballs for Kerry up to attack Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “How difficult is it for you to operate in this atmosphere where the President-elect is communicating directly with Prime Minister Netanyahu?”

It would be a good idea for journalists to be wary of any anti-Israel or left-leaning guests making claims about how much foreign aid the U.S. grants Israel each year, since on two occasions just Wednesday, CNN guests managed to pass off wildly overstated claims about how much the U.S. spends in supporting the Jewish state and only liberal democracy in the Middle East. On CNN's Wolf show, pro-Palestinian activist Diana Buttu claimed that Israel gets $38 billion a year. In reality, Israel receives about $3 billion a year.

The fact that Boy Scout membership is limited to males has not always been newsworthy. However, in the current media landscape, such a “controversial” claim garnered three minutes of network airtime and copious online news coverage.

Liberals still sore over Donald Trump’s electoral victory are bashing the president-elect by any means, including through liberal media outlets.

In the latest volley, left-wing Slate and Vanity Fair both attacked Trump for how he’ll hurt the economy and Americans’ finances a day before Trump was scheduled to deliver an economic speech.

The New York Times has two standards when it comes to defying the rule of federal law – it’s great when it comes to left-wing causes like amnesty for illegals and sanctuary cities, awful when it comes to opposition to gay marriage. And while the Times is adamantly opposed to churches who dare to act on their opposition to gay marriage, churches can gain Strange New Respect from the paper for acting as sanctuary for illegal immigrants. Religion reporter Laurie Goodstein in Philadelphia made the top slot in Wednesday’s National section with “In Trump Era, Offering a Place Of Both Faith And Sanctuary.” The jump-page text box: “Houses of worship offer shelter and aid to undocumented immigrants.” No “illegal immigrants” in Times-land. And two other recent pieces underlined the double standard.

On Wednesday afternoon, a CNN panel reacted to Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech lambasting Israel with praise for the “personal and passionate” address at the State Department aimed at a supposedly vast base of global supporters who believe in a two-state solution.

In his "Morning Jolt" e-mail newsletter on Wednesday, National Review’s Jim Geraghty tore into an article comparing Harry Reid to Yoda. Jason Zengerle, a writer for Politico's magazine, wrote a gushy profile of Reid for New York magazine that included this passage: "Reid is as stern and blunt as ever, and the combined effect of his mental and physical condition has given him a Yoda-ish quality."

Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, Jason Johnson of The Root ridiculously claimed, during a discussion before Secretary of State John Kerry's speech on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, that the United States "gives the vast majority of its foreign aid to Israel." In fact, according to the Washington Post, of the approximately $50 billion dollars the U.S. is expected to grant in foreign aid for FY 2017, Israel would only receive about $3 billion.

To feminists it’s a sin to compliment a woman’s appearance, apparently. Actor Steve Martin learned that the hard way yesterday after tweeting out his initial memory of actress Carrie Fisher, whose untimely death made headlines Tuesday morning. Thousands tweeted out their respects to the iconic actress who played Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. But not everyone escaped the wrath of the feminist police, who were out in full force enforcing their special code of conduct about what could be said and what couldn’t be said about the late actress.

All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Yesterday, we presented the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons; today’s installment showcases some of this year’s most rancid quotes attacking Republicans or conservatives. Most of the media’s ire this year was aimed at GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump — who, according to some in the media, is either an American version of Hitler, “clinically insane,” or a “raving meth head” — but conservative Senator Ted Cruz and the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia were also targeted.

Oh, what happens when political correctness causes racism and sexism to clash. What began as an innocent email exchange between an actress wanting to learn and understand the view of a minority for a movie role, has been turned into another made up example of America’s new favorite trending term, “white privilege.”   
It all began last March when actress Tilda Swinton sent an email to Margaret Cho, asking the Asian-American comedian why Asians were upset Swinton was cast as a sorcerer in the Marvel Comics movie Doctor Strange. It went wrong enough that Swinton sent the entire e-mail exchange to the feminist website Jezebel.

MSNBC took their fear mongering of President-elect Donald Trump to new heights Tuesday night when All In host Chris Hayes reported that, “Trump’s comments about nuclear weapons have experts worried he could literally inadvertently trigger a catastrophe.” Hayes used two segments of his show to try to drive home his narrative and help spread his fear. He also brought on Esquire writer Charlie Pierce to aid him in his endeavor.

The 39th Annual Kennedy Center Honors show on CBS is yet another awards show you probably don’t watch, but it actually honors people who do have talent. However, if we’re to believe host Stephen Colbert, that talent apparently also includes our lame duck president. Barack Obama has proven to be “passionate, intelligent, and dignified” over the past eight years, Colbert proclaimed as the audience gave him a standing ovation

When Congress returns in January, the Democrats will be gunning for several Trump Cabinet nominees. The Left has already launched negative narratives on several, especially Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Trump’s pick for Attorney General. Not only are the left-wing news media giving oxygen to these vitriolic attacks, in some cases, they are the very authors.

On their front pages on Christmas Day, both the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post published “profile” stories on Sessions obsessing over racial matters.
