Michael Moore predicted that political Oscars speeches will be well received this year. But before the spiels even got under way, stars were making a statement on the red carpet.

Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sunday’s Meet the Press, after Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton had to explain to him that the claims of anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt. “Anonymous sources said Steve Bannon drove from the White House to the Department of Homeland Security to confront John Kelly, which we now know is not the truth,” Cotton reminded Todd, “That’s not like the tone of a conversation, that’s someone’s physical whereabouts.”

Sunday’s New York Times featured the latest installment in easily-freaked media reporter Jim Rutenberg’s crusade against President Trump: “Trump’s Undermining Reporters May Haunt Republicans.” The online headline foreshadowed Rutenberg’s unlikely attempt to enlist Republicans in defense of the press and against Trump: “Will the Real Democracy Lovers Please Stand Up?” while the text box delivered an empty threat: “This strategy could push Republicans into a corner later.” Rutenberg made no acknowledgement of the increasingly unconcealed anti-Trump partisanship displayed by the media, including his own newspaper and own column.

Things got painfully real for the liberal media during CNN’s New Day Sunday after Nick Adams, Founder of the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness, called out the White House Correspondent’s Dinner for being “a Democratic Party worship center.” “But, I think that there's no reason for the President to go on this particular occasion,” Adams explained, after being asked if Trump should attend the lavish liberal event, “I know that it's a long-standing tradition, but in recent years it’s become a blight on the republic.”

Earlier this week, Baltimore Orioles executive vice president and chief operating officer John Angelos said that he wouldn't want President Donald Trump to throw out the first pitch at his team's Camden Yards home opener until Trump "retract(s) all these outrageous things that have been said and simply apologize(s)." Most coverage of this story has failed to report that Angelos's father Peter is a longtime, heavy-contributing Democratic Party operative, while no one has questioned John's disingenuous claim of non-partisanship.

Here at NewsBusters this was the headline: “NBC News Uses Kids to Criticize Trump in New Video.” The story by Melissa Mullins began this way: “On Sunday, NBC News has resorted to using children in videos to deliver statements criticizing to President Trump just one month into his presidency.  Opening with a young boy eager about an outsider coming to Washington to bring people together, the series, ‘Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children,’ then begins throwing cheap shots by using kids.”

The MRC's Rich Noyes on Friday appeared on Fox News to discuss reports that the White House is blocking some media outlets from an off-camera press gaggles. The research director suggested an alternative path, saying Donald Trump should continue to “criticize them.” He added, “If you have a problem, point them out, showcase it. Make sure everybody understands why that was sloppy journalism and let the chips fall where they may after you air the dirty laundry.”

If you’re going to watch Sunday’s Oscars, be prepared for a tsunami of liberal rage, more so than the usual Academy Awards. The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday reported that actor Jack Black hailed actress Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech and lobbied for more at the Oscars: “I just hope she wins the Oscar and talks some more shit about that asshole.”

Major entertainment site tries to connect President Trump to possible Oscar night violence. Last year’s Oscars ceremony featured glitz, glamour … and more military personnel than the event typically demands. Why? The ceremony took place after terrorist strikes in both Paris and San Bernardino, Calif. Understandably, a higher police profile became necessary. News outlets dutifully covered the aggressive approach.

Actress Meryl Streep isn’t just denouncing the dire state of America at Hollywood awards shows. She’s now taking this awards speech to far-left events, accepting an “Ally Award” from the LGBT political-correctness police at the so-called Human Rights Campaign. Since so many Americans will never get to stand at an awards show podium and speak their mind about what’s wrong with the world, we thought we’d present an awards-show speech responding to Meryl Streep and what she represents:

For a variety of reasons, churches are losing millennials in their pews. ABC’s Last Man Standing addresses this issue, with a great solution. On Friday’s episode, “Take Me to Church,” Mike and Vanessa Baxter discuss how they can make church more engaging as Mike finds the service boring. Vanessa brings up the fact that she misses their daughters attending.

Further ramping up his open opposition to President Trump's immigration law enforcement policies, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has let loose with an outrageous tirade that could best be described as equal parts nationalistic identity politics, racially-driven demagoguery, and yet another instance of the irresponsible conflation of legal and illegal immigration.

Politicizing sports -- it’s not just for ESPN anymore! No longer seeing sports as a respite from politics, the New York Times has joined the game of pestering and trying to pin down athletes suspected of secret anti-Trump tendencies, while celebrating supporters of illegal immigrants and Black Lives Matter protests: "Of the 56 players polled, 50 -- or 89.3 percent -- said they would play golf with Trump if asked....The results were hardly surprising. The clubhouses at PGA Tour stops have long trended Republican, and the sport’s target demographic -- rich, mostly white men -- is far different from the women, minorities, immigrants and Muslims who have at times been the most offended by the president’s statements and positions."

Almost fifteen years ago, South Park paid tribute to a trailblazing animated TV series by calling an episode “The Simpsons Already Did It.” According to Columbia Journalism Review columnist Joel Simon, regardless of the current hubbub over President Trump’s media-bashing, several “Latin American populist” heads of state, including the late Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez, already did it, or something a lot like it, long before Trump dubbed certain MSM outlets “the enemy of the people,” a description he reaffirmed Friday morning in his speech at CPAC.

If there's any doubt that the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight “doesn't take prisoners” when interviewing liberal guests during his weeknight Fox News Channel program, his volatile exchange on Thursday with Zac Petkanas, a senior advisor for the Democratic National Committee, should have settled that question for good.

The topic was gender identity, and Petkanas had slammed President Donald Trump and his administration as “monsters” in a tweet earlier that day for removing a policy administered by his predecessor one year ago regarding transgender children. In response, Carlson countered that people “get to decide your gender with no biological anchor to sex anymore.”
