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.

Celebrities are getting desperate after the Trump victory. Leftist actress Olivia Wilde –a huge Clinton supporter –believed her hair resembled Melania Trump’s and decided to debut a new haircut on Instagram with the hashtag, “#nomoremelaniahair.”

People magazine reported that because they had the same length of chestnut brown hair with highlights at the end, and often styled it the exact same way — with long, loose face-framing waves, Wilde believed she had “Melania Trump” hair. As if anyone without a huge ego would notice “hair twins.”

Network news outlet ABC was not amused by President-Elect Donald Trump’s tweets targeting President Barack Obama Tuesday evening, as reporter Mary Bruce rebuked much of Trump’s harsh criticism of the lame-duck president. “Now, the president-elect, 1,200 miles away [from Trump Tower], but not off Twitter, where he again took aim at President Obama,” announced Tom Llamas, filling in for Anchor David Muir.

Appearing on MSNBC early Tuesday afternoon, guest and former Obama State Department official Joel Rubin lashed out at Israel’s reaction to the settlements vote at the United Nations (UN), comparing Israel to his misbehaving eight-year-old daughter venturing outside in the cold without proper clothing to avoid becoming sick.

Steve McMahon, a Democratic Party member described as a media consultant, apparently either hasn't followed the news sufficiently since the presidential election, or is determined to rewrite history. My vote is with the latter. McMahon appeared on MSNBC on Tuesday. Before criticizing President-Elect Donald Trump's victory rallies as "incendiary, he outrageously claimed that Hillary Clinton has "been very gracious since the election," and that she "didn’t contest the election results" or "ask for recounts."

The United Nations voting again to punish Israel -- with the assent of the Obama White House -- put Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer is a sour mood. On Monday night’s Special Report, substitute host Doug McKelway pointed out that Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted the U.S. government shouldn’t fund the UN until this vote is reversed.
