CNN's Executive Editor speculated Tuesday that the Republican Party might be "hiding" information regarding former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee regarding alleged communication between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. This development came in light of an accusation from Yates' lawyer that the White House tried to limit her testimony for the now-canceled committee hearing.

On Monday’s The Daily Show host Trevor Noah compared Fox News to North Korea’s state-controlled media. Noah began the segment playing a clip from FNC’s Justice With Judge Jeanine March 25 show, where host Jeanine Pirro is shown criticizing Paul Ryan for giving Trump a failed health care bill. Noah then mocks Pirro blaming Ryan for the healthcare bill not passing, instead of Trump for not being able to sell it. But he really goes over the top at one part, comparing Pirro’s fervent delivery to socialist propaganda:

Federalist publisher Ben Domenech on Tuesday shot down the “partisan” slams on Congressman Devin Nunes, attacks that are coming from Democrats as well as their enablers in the media. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King goaded the conservative to go after Nunes as incapable of leading the investigation related to Trump, Russia and surveillance claims: “Do you think it's necessary to have legitimacy in this investigation?”

Irony abounded on Tuesday as all three network morning shows used Democratic Party talking points to accuse Republican House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes of bias. While advancing a liberal partisan agenda, NBC, ABC, and CBS correspondents laughably told viewers that it was Congressman Nunes who had “lost even the appearance of impartiality.”

The outrage culture is always finding something new to be angry about. This time it was over a business choosing to enforce its rules about how representatives of the company should be dressed.
But that’s not how most people heard the story thanks to the media frenzy, social media and celebrities who rushed to attack United Airlines. NPR called the company’s responses “astonishingly tone-deaf,” a contributor to The Huffington Post reacted by telling Uber that United’s “‘Leggings-Gate’ Just Made You Look Good,” while Fortune’s associate editor Anne VanderMey penned an entire commentary headlined “Leggings Should Be Worn on Planes, and the Office, and Everywhere Else.”

This past weekend, Erica Werner and Alan Fram at the Associated Press had a good old time beating up on President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled House over their "humiliating failure" to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. In the process, though, the reporters, who have been covering Washington politics since the ACA's inception, betrayed breathtaking ignorance of one of its basic principles, calling into question whether they have any genuine knowledge of the legislation the GOP tried and failed to repeal and replace.

There’s a small community of adults in America who are sexually gratified by wearing diapers, sleeping in cribs and playing with toys. Just when you thought sexual deviance couldn’t get any weirder.

New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters used the failure of President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress to repeal Obamacare in order to pile on the hostile ideological labels in his Monday post-mortem, particularly on top of those “Republican hard-liners” who don’t believe in good governance: “G.O.P., Once Unified Against Obama, Struggles for Consensus Under Trump.” In all there were 15 ideological labels in the 1100-word story: 11 “conservative” labels, two “right,” one “far right,” and one “hard-liners.”

In ABC’s Quantico on Monday the episode titled “Mockingbird” exposes the dark side of fake news. The story has a political element to it and guess which party takes the hit? Right. The bad guys are Republican politicians. The town of Brookwall, Virginia is evacuated after an explosion at a chemical storage facility. Concerns over water quality bring in federal agents to conduct tests and monitor the situation. The problem is, though, the story is fake news. An emergency was deliberately created and reported to allow the bad guys – private contractors- to find one individual. That person is a Republican senator’s “media guru."

Three months into the year, we may have reached peak 2017. Univision, after years of waging open war on Republicans, is now openly complaining about lack of access to Congressional Republicans. Most of the on-the-record whining comes from Edición Nocturna (Univision's late-night newscast) co-anchor Enrique Acevedo, who has this to say to Politico's Hadas Gold:
