On Thursday morning, Mika Brzezinski was all too happy to be having Senator Bernie Sanders on Morning Joe. Not once, but twice during the 7 a.m. ET hour segment, she explained to Joe Scarborough that he had better not interrupt her or cut into the blocked off time that was set aside for Senator Sanders because of how excited she was to have him on the show. Not only that, but she also told her co-host that she was inviting herself to join the Senator’s nationwide tour.

CBS This Morning on Friday previewed Barack Obama’s “final network interview as Commander-in-Chief,” touting a clip in which journalist Steve Kroft hails the President’s restraint in criticizing Donald Trump. Kroft initially prodded, “You have to admit this is one of the strangest transitions in history.... Can [Trump] run an improvisational presidency?”

Here we go again. A month ago, Robert Baer, a leading coddler of Iran who is an "Intelligence and Security Analyst" while pontificating at CNN, contended that alleged Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election meant that the nation needs "to vote again." Now The Hill has given space to Chris Edelson, an assistant professor of government in American University's School of Public Affairs, to advocate the same thing ("Remedy for Russian meddling should be new election").

Friday’s special guest on ABC’s The View was Vice President Joe Biden. Like ABC does with every Democrat guest, instead of asking critical questions, the panel split half their commentary into praising Biden and the other half into baiting him to slam Republicans. Host Joy Behar was the most frequent instigator though fellow host Whoopi Goldberg tried three times to get Biden to agree that Trump and Pence were not ready to “empathize” with the American people.

On Thursday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson confronted former Obama Department of Justice spokesman Matthew Miller for suggesting that Donald Trump’s presidency is illegitimate and the election was not  “fair and square.” Such debates have been catalysts for drawing eyeballs to Carlson’s eponymous FNC show and his promotion to 9:00 p.m. Eastern. That being said, this particular one didn’t disappoint.

Following a gushing report on Friday’s NBC Today about President Obama awarding Vice President Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, co-host Matt Lauer revealed that he was overtaken by emotion while watching the White House ceremony on Thursday: “So I'm glad there were no cameras in my apartment yesterday because I was just sitting there weeping....I just burst out crying when I saw that moment. It was incredible."

Appearing as a panel member on Tuesday's CNN Tonight to discuss President-elect Donald Trump's press conference in which he accused CNN and BuzzFeed of peddling "fake news," CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter whined about the term "fake news" being "misused" and "exploited" by "partisans on the left and right" as he declared that he agrees with the Washington Post's Margaret Sullivan that "it's time to retire the term."

The broadcast news networks barely even mentioned the latest significant overhaul of U.S. policy by the Obama Administration.

For two decades, the United States has granted asylum to Cuban fleeing the Castro regime who make it to American soil, a policy known as “wet foot, dry foot.” Now, in his final days in office, President Obama has ended this policy, to applause from the Cuban government. According to NBC’s Today, “The policy change has been in the works for several months, as the U.S. and Cuba work to cement changes in their relationship.”

Last night and this morning, ABC, CBS and NBC dedicated a paltry 86 seconds to this news. ABC was the worst with a stingy 15 seconds of coverage, while CBS came in close behind with 23 seconds.

The Washington Post on Friday gushed over a new Catholic-bashing HBO drama that features an “a-hole” Pope. Reviewer Hank Stuever, of course, linked this despicable character to Donald Trump. The Young Pope stars Jude Law as an “ice-blooded American cardinal” chosen to be the leader of the Catholic Church.

Well, it can’t be as embarrassing as the “I Pledge” video, can it? You may remember the creepy, statist statement of fealty to the Dear Leader celebrities put out at the beginning of the Obama administration. Well, now A-listers are putting out a video to mark the start of the Trump era and, in its way, it’s as gobsmackingly stupid and un-American as “I Pledge.”

Close your eyes for a moment and picture Mt. Rushmore. First, you see America’s two most iconic founding fathers, then a war hero, and finally, the man who preserved the Union and emancipated the slaves. But if ESPN Style Writer Jill Hudson had her way, Michelle Obama would be up there with them—for her fashion sense.

Robin Givhan, the liberal political columnist who plays fashion writer at The Washington Post, dominated the front of the Style section on Friday with a question: Can a fashion designer in good conscience agree to dress Melania Trump? Givhan argued that blacklisting the new First Lady is a good way to show a social conscience. The Trumps can buy off the rack, so it’s not really a blacklist. Givhan said dressing the First Lady – especially for Inauguration Night, has always been an honor, until Donald Trump inspired “new waves of racism and violence.”

It’s hard to focus on how insane the alt-left is in a week where pretend journalists from BuzzFeed post an unverified dossier accusing President elect Trump of bizarre sex habits. I set a bar for how crazy liberals have become and try to focus on stories that hurdle the bar. For all that I have zero respect for anyone or anything connected to Buzzfeed, I didn’t expect them to crawl underneath.
