The New York Times two-column lead story Tuesday was predictable: FBI director James Comey’s testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee, where he announced that the FBI is in fact “investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.” (The Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch were relegated to page 20.) “Comey Confirms Inquiry On Russia And Trump Allies," breathlessly reported that Comey had “placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House.” As a snotty sidebar, Tuesday’s front page also featured reporter Michael Shear, “G.O.P. Reply Is to Change The Subject.” Shear also eagerly used the “criminal investigation” formula.

After expressing his disappointment earlier in the day that Democrats had been unable to “lay a glove” on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch during Tuesday’s Senate confirmation hearing, during MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour, anchor Brian Williams tried to assuage his fellow liberals by speculating that the conservative judge might shift left while on the high court.

During the second break in day two of Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing Tuesday afternoon, CNN detected some wind in their sails as they swooned and congratulated their Democratic allies for supposedly giving the “testy” Gorsuch “a little bit more of a run for his money.” CNN found nothing to object to in the first break around lunchtime, so it was inevitable that they would concoct some sort of liberal spin to give Senate Democrats a boost.

While the View crew disagreed on how, all of them appeared to defend The Blaze host Tomi Lahren following her recent comments on abortion. But then, the show boasts a long history of supporting abortion – and bashing pro-lifers. On Monday, View co-host Whoopi Goldberg criticized the “backlash” Lahren received after calling herself “pro-choice” on the show last week. The conversation sparked a heated debate among the hosts about the possibility of being both a “constitutional conservative” and “pro-choice.”

On CNN's New Day Tuesday, co-host Chris Cuomo questioned if President Donald Trump will be able to overcome attacks on his credibility and the investigations that surround him and his team.

In a Hollywood obsessed with sex and abortion, it’s unheard of for a music video to star an unborn baby. Until this week. Released Monday, British singer James Blake’s latest music video stars a pregnant Natalie Portman “just days” before she gave birth to daughter Amalia.

Even Ellen’s a bit baffled by “gender fluidity” and preferred pronouns. In a March 20 interview with actress Asia Kate Dillon, the lesbian show host discussed the confusing concept of identifying as “non-binary.” “I think people assume just because I’m gay I understand all this,” she quipped.

Nina Totenberg is very confused. The hard-left NPR journalist on Tuesday admitted that Judge Neil Gorsuch is “respected,” yet he’s also somehow “very conservative.” Appearing on MSNBC, Brian Williams asked Totenberg to project the Supreme Court nominee’s ideology. At first, she hedged, saying, “I actually don’t know.”

USA Today’s Andrea Mandell’s email account must be burning up with panicky press releases from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting – each reminding her of all the “great cultural works” those agencies have brought us.

The fear tactics from partisan liberal journalists are at work to save funding for PBS. USA Today online on Tuesday trumpeted this deceptive headline: “Could Trump's 2018 budget kill Sesame Street's beloved Big Bird?” Well, no. Because Sesame Street no longer receives government funding and airs on HBO. The news outlet also outrageously connected the defunding move to bigotry.

Chelsea Handler's tweet on Monday in reaction to the announcement by Lara and Eric Trump that they are expecting their first child shows that we have yet to reach bottom in anti-Trump meanness and incivility, and that the "leave the family alone" admonishment is so 2016. Serendipitously, given that the left routinely ridicules many of the center-right's supporters and everyday Americans in general as ignoramuses, Handler's tweet also reflects badly on her literacy.

On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor Robin Roberts and Nightline anchor Juju Chang touted a story of a mother and son both declaring themselves as transgender and getting gender re-assignment hormones and surgery. The two ABC anchors mutually gushed over the “incredible” “moving” and “touching” story. At the end of the report, Roberts and Chang even praised the “courage” of the mother for being “inspired” to change genders because of her child’s transformation.

On CNN's New Day Tuesday, co-host Chris Cuomo implied his displeasure with FBI Director James Comey over the agnecy's handling of investigations last year, such as the hacking of the Democratic National Committee in addition to looking into whether then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on a private server while serving as Secretary of State. In front of the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, Comey testified and confirmed the FBI is looking into possible ties and collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, though news reports of what Comey confirmed have appeared at least a month beforehand.
