What a difference a day makes. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Wednesday grilled Ivanka Trump on being “complicit” in her father’s administration, one that many are “very afraid” of. This contrasts to the fawning interview with another first daughter, Chelsea Clinton, on Tuesday. For that, fan girl King gushed over the younger Clinton’s political prospects: “Are you running? Are you running? Are you running?”

Much like the January 2017, anti-Trump Women’s March, the protests against Trump’s Supreme Court pick were not grassroots efforts. Fourteen “People’s Filibuster” events protesting Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch on April 1 were organized by The People’s Defense, an activist website created on Feb. 28 by NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Ken Dilanian, intelligence and national security reporter for NBC News, posted Tuesday on the emerging controversy over the “unmasking,” by President Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice, of the identities of Trump associates whose names were originally redacted in intelligence reports. The title to Dilanian’s piece, “What Is Unmasking, and Did Susan Rice Do Anything Wrong?” made it safe to assume that Dilanian’s answer would be “Of course she didn’t!”

The gender pay gap is not what the left claims, but the liberal media continue peddling the misinformation that women make far less than men. Proponents of the “misleading” wage gap statistic designated April 4, as Equal Pay Day. Each year they cry discrimination and call attention to “wage discrepancies that exist between men and women in the workforce.” Predictably, liberal media outlets repeat those claims that women get paid 20 percent less for doing the same work as men and refuse to expose the truth behind the statistic.

Last week’s episode of TBS’s The Detour might have poked fun at liberals, but this week the joke is on us. And it was far from funny. April 4’s episode, “The Job,” was filled with utter contempt and intolerance towards Christianity. The first hint of trouble came when main characters Nate (Jason Jones) and Robin (Natalie Zea) Parker are having difficulty hailing a taxi and Nate turns to silently pray about it.

It’s no secret that the creator of HBO’s Girls, Lena Dunham, is rabidly pro-abortion, as I’ve mentioned in previous articles on the show. So, the fact that the current storyline has Dunham’s character choosing life for her baby has been quite surprising, though I’m waiting for the moment where she decides she absolutely cannot be “burdened” by a baby and decides to have a late-term abortion.

Eli Lake at Bloomberg News reported on April 3 that President Trump’s lawyers discovered it was Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice who “requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.”
Susan Rice, at the center of another scandal? Yes, and she’s lying about it on TV again. On the “PBS NewsHour” on March 22, anchor Judy Woodruff introduced the interview by telling viewers she asked Rice about whether Trump's team “may have been swept up in surveillance of foreigners at the end of the Obama administration.” Rice protested "I know nothing about this."

Searches at the Associated Press's main national site and at the New York Times indicate that the last newsworthy thing new Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez did was to demand, i.e., not "ask for," as the AP sanitized it, "resignation letters from all DNC (Democratic National Committee) staffers." This means that neither outlet considers Perez's repeated profanity-laced rants last week that Donald Trump "didn’t win this election” newsworthy.

The country’s emotions ran high as horrific images flooded in from Syria on Tuesday, where dictator Bashar al-Assad killed dozens and wounded hundreds more in a chemical weapon attack on his own people. “Even by the horrors of the Syrian civil war, what happened today will stand out as a crime against humanity,” was the first sentence uttered by Anchor Scott Pelley as CBS Evening News came on the air. But he then seemed to insinuate that the blame rested at President Trump’s feet.

On Tuesday’s edition of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC political analyst/Mother Jones D.C. bureau chief David Corn were unglued over the Susan Rice “unmasking” controversy, suggesting that it was racist and sexist for these accusations to be leveled at the former National Security Adviser because she’s never done anything wrong.

Due to the nation’s “intense political climate,” ESPN programming will now become even more political than it has been. ESPN went public today with a new set of guidelines on politics and elections, reassuring all that the nickname Entertainment, Sports and Progressive Network fits. Reading between and “outside the lines” of this policy, it’s clear the controversial network is throwing off the gloves and promising to swing even further to the Left.

In stark contrast to his CNN colleagues Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon who have desperately tried to downplay the significance of the revelations about former National Security Adviser Susan Rice unmasking the names of members of the Donald Trump campaign team on intelligence reports, Inside Politics host John King scoffed at Rice's change of stories about her role. When someone known for liberal hackery openly mocks Rice, you know the dam is bursting even at CNN.

Appearing on the Tuesday edition of the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell didn’t mince words when it came to the liberal media’s scant coverage of the Susan Rice “unmasking” story, ruling “CNN has been on a jihad” against outlet that have dared cover it.

CNN's New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo conducted a softball interview Tuesday of Democratic Representative Jim Himes (Conn.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, who slammed Chairman Devin Nunes and other Republicans over their approach to investigating possible ties between Presdient Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.
