During MSNBC’s live breaking news coverage of the suspected terrorist attacks in London on Wednesday, NBC News reporter Matt Bradley reported via phone from the British capital and was more worried about the violence helping conservative politicians than he was about the victims: “We've seen this rise of a kind of a right-wing movement here and throughout Europe. And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.”

Liberal journalists on the three networks, Wednesday, dutifully did the bidding of Democratic senators trying to take down Neil Gorsuch. ABC, CBS and NBC all promoted the partisan effort to “keep [Gorsuch] on the griddle” and force the nominee to prove he’s “not a political pawn.”

During the 10 a.m. ET hour on Wednesday, correspondent Chris Jansing openly cheered on Democratic California Senator Diane Feinstein for attacking Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch early in day three of his confirmation hearing: “Dianne Feinstein certainly went after him on a number of issues that are critical to progressives. Abortion, euthanasia at the top of the list.”

Last Thursday, a young girl attending Rockville High School in Maryland was brutally gang raped in her school’s bathroom by two fellow students, at least one of which was in the country illegally. Jose O. Montano, 17, from El Salvador, and Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, 18, from Guatemala, were charged last week with raping their 14-year-old female classmate in the school’s men’s bathroom. Both had only been in Montgomery County for a few months before they were placed in the school’s 9th grade class. Sanchez-Milian is a confirmed illegal immigrant that is being detained by ICE officials while officials will not comment on Montano’s immigration status, as he is a minor.

If there’s anything Hollywood loves more than Hillary Clinton, it’s the ACLU. And now that they can’t throw lavish fundraisers for the former Democratic candidate, entertainers can funnel more money to their favorite liberal organization. On the evening of March 31, a group of big name actors will do just that through a benefit performance called “Stand for Rights.”

The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) have devoted exhaustive coverage over the allegation that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 election, as most recently seen in their massive reporting of the James Comey hearings. But there was a time when they didn’t care when a foreign country tried to buy a U.S. election (Hint: It helped a Democrat). Back in 1996, China helped then-President Bill Clinton get re-elected by funneling money to the Clinton campaign.

After several days of silence, Univision finally got around to covering the horrific rape at Rockville (Maryland) High School. In so doing, the network aired a stunning admission that blows its liberal narrative and immigration agenda completely out of the water.

Early Tuesday evening, Curtis Houck at NewsBusters noted that the rape of a 14 year-old girl at a Maryland high school by two older teens (17 and 18) who recently arrived the U.S. was the subject of a question at Trump Press Secretary Sean Spicer's press conference earlier that day. The Washington Post's first story on the rape Friday illustrates Houck's observation that the crime is "an inconvenient story for their liberal narrative" that one must downplay or simply not report negative news about the actions of illegal immigrants.

With the GOP’s new health care bill limping into Thursday’s vote in the House especially after the brutal Congressional Budget Office report, the media are taking every chance to give it one more kick. But during Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, commentator David Gergen claimed that the CBO had put out an even more damaging report. “We’ve just learned in last 24 hours the Congressional Budget Office says that: if you let this bill -- Obamacare, just die, you will have more people with insurance than if you put repeal and replace into place,” he claimed. But the kicker is the CBO did not put out such a report.

Hulu’s The Mindy Project randomly peppered its latest episode "Mindy's Best Friend" with names from the political universe as if some of them were known personally. Throughout the half hour show, famous political figures were name-dropped no less than 7 times.

On Tuesday, the crazy train on MSNBC’s Hardball was firing on all cylinders. Host Chris Matthews was in rare form as he compared President Trump to O.J. Simpson and suggested that journalists (especially newspapers) should be automatically believed because, supposedly, no other group of humanity tells the truth better than journalists.

The defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is long past overdue. No president, including Ronald Reagan, seriously pushed an immediate winding down of this corrupt and outdated waste of taxpayer funds. Who would have ever imagined that Donald Trump would be the first to do this?
His first budget takes that step, not just to save of ton of taxpayer money ($450 million is a lot of money), but to establish a principle about our leftist media. It’s simply not appropriate for the federal government to fund Democratic propaganda badly disguised as “news.”

NBC didn't bury the story after a commercial break like the other networks, but they did try to paint President Donald Trump’s nominee in a highly negative light, literally. “Gorsuch says he met Mr. Trump when interviewed for the job,” reported justice correspondent Pete Williams on NBC Nightly News. While he was saying that, a dreary black and white clip of Gorsuch shaking Trump’s hand played in slow motion. It looked as though it was a scene out of a TV murder documentary.

The Obama White House got the star treatment when they were in office, so they were all-but-guaranteed the same Hollywood treatment out of office. Universal Pictures and Anonymous Content supposedly have a “high-concept workplace comedy” in the works, a movie called From the Corner of the Oval. Set for a 2018 release, the movie will be based on a book proposal from former White House stenographer, Beck Dorey-Stein.

Loony MSNBC host Chris Matthews concluded Tuesday night’s Hardball with a loud berating of Senate Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not confirming Obama Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland, engaging in “low-level politics” harming the country.
