Whenever liberals get upset about something, its almost a guarantee that the broadcast networks will do a story channeling their fears. That was the case Wednesday morning, as ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today seized on left-wing environmental activists being in hysterics over President Trump’s executive order rolling back excessive environmental regulations imposed by the Obama administration.

The Washington Post is condemning one pro-life group for cherry-picking – while turning a blind eye to its own basket full of them. On Sunday, The Washington Post editorial board defended America’s largest abortion provider in an opinion piece with the headline, “More lies on Planned Parenthood.” In a list of complaints, the board accused pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List of sponsoring an “advertising campaign” with “misleading data and half-truths.” SBA List provided a response to the board below – but whether or not the members will reply is another issue.

She may have lost the election but that doesn’t mean the media doesn’t still hang on her every word. After Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance before an audience in San Francisco attending a diversity conference March 28, the networks couldn’t get enough. ABC, NBC and CBS all devoted time to Clinton’s speech the next morning, playing several clips where she bashed the White House for its handling of health care, diversity and other issues

Tuesday on Morning Joe, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski opened the show by discussing House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes and whether he should remove himself from pending investigations concerning Russian ties to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Scarborough began with a question: “Alright, so let's ask a question, Mika, that needs to be asked at the top before we get into this news. Who decided that Devin Nunes was...qualified to be the House Intel chair? Because from everybody that I've spoken to who have worked with him, Republicans, Democrats, they say he is not up to that task.”

While it’s definitely not a family-friendly show, March 28th's episode of The Detour, “The Heat,” had a couple of hilarious moments that almost made up for the raunchiness of the rest of the show. The Detour centers around a not-so typical family as real-life couple and show creators Jason Jones and Samantha Bee play parents Nate and Robin who take their kids on a road trip.

In Tuesday's episode of Freeform’s The Fosters titled “Dirty Laundry,” the family led by married lesbian moms and comprised of multi-ethnic children – biological, adopted and foster – takes permissive liberal parenting to a new level. Am I the only mom today that thinks allowing a 16 year old son and his girlfriend to have sex in his bedroom is crossing a bridge too far?

On Monday's The View on ABC, as the group discussed Ted Koppel's recent interview with Sean Hannity in which he accused the conservative FNC host of being bad for the country, liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and Joy Behar all wrongly accused Fox News of promoting birtherism conspiracy theories against President Barack Obama. Ironically, a Nexis search reveals many examples of FNC anchors over the years disputing the conspiracy theories that Obama was born in Kenya, as they repeatedly made known their belief that he was born in Hawaii and that those who claimed otherwise were misguided.

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan honored CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley on Monday in a column headlined “Scott Pelley is showing his bias for the truth.” Inside the Style section, the headline was “Good reporters can’t be neutral about the truth.”
The problem with this approach is wanting to have it both ways. Pelley has a “pro-truth” bias, but he’s somehow unbiased. He’s honored for calling Trump “divorced from reality” and calling Trump aide Kellyanne Conway a “fearless fabulist.” But somehow what Sullivan honors, those “dogged” and “blunter” judgments, are unbiased?

Univision shockingly airs another story that goes against its broader narratives: this time, by reporting on recently deported Mexican nationals that are quickly going on to find meaningful employment in their native land. Here's one such happy returning deportee, as depicted on Noticiero Univision on Monday, March 27th:

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer found himself in some hot water with the sensational liberal media following his nationally televised throwdown with reporter April Ryan, during Tuesday’s press briefing. The turbulent exchange was noticed by failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who railed against Spicer in a speech she was giving in San Francisco, California. Clinton’s rant seemed to entertain Don Lemon who played the clip for his panel on CNN Tonight, with one joyfully declaring “Hillary Clinton is back!”

On March 16, a 14-year-old girl was pushed into a boys’ bathroom at Rockville (Maryland) High School and raped by two other students during school hours. Police arrested two freshmen who recently arrived from Central America – 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano. Sanchez, a Guatemalan, has a pending “alien-removal” case against him. Montano, from El Salvador, was a minor, so his immigration status was not released.
The Washington Post reported, “The two took turns holding the girl down and sexually assaulting her as she cried out, fought back and repeatedly told them to stop, according to police affidavits filed in court.”

MSNBC host Chris Matthews was off and running on Tuesday’s Hardball, engaging in loony speculation that House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes’s claims about Trump surveillance could be fake, legitimate claims by Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash were false, and teed up Jennifer Palmieri’s sad excuses that Russia was why they lost the election.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that stripped the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to continue with President Obama’s Clean Power Plan and the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) went nuts. “After suffering defeat in Congress in his promise to replace ObamaCare, President Trump returned back to the executive order route today to try to deliver on another major campaign vow,” whined anchor Lester Holt at the start of NBC Nightly News, “It’s a jobs move that like the health care gamut entails shredding another major piece of the Obama legacy.”

The appearance of a March 23 portrayal of former California Governor Pete Wilson at the Los Angeles Times, though probably coincidental, is quite serendipitous. Six days after the alleged rape at a Maryland high school of a 14 year-old freshman girl at the hands of two late-teen classmates in the U.S. illegally, Times writer Mark Z. Barabak went after Wilson for his support of that state's Proposition 187, a 1994 initiative passed overwhelmingly by voters, whose purpose "was to make immigrants residing in the country without legal permission ineligible for public benefits."
