During Monday's edition of CBS's Late Show program, host Stephen Colbert chimed in on actress Meryl Streep's six-minute speech slamming President-elect Donald Trump at the Golden Globe Awards the night before, and he gleefully let his liberal perspective come shining through.

For weeks, the liberal media have celebrated all that Barack Obama means...to them. CNN produced a two-hour documentary on the Obama legacy that never mentioned things like annual trillion-dollar deficits. Fareed Zakaria wrapped up the show: “He ran an administration that was largely scandal-free and did it all the while under a microscope. Because he looked different.”

When President-elect Donald Trump announced that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, would be taking an advisory role in the White House, all three broadcast evening news shows raised concerns about “nepotism,” with each one specifically using that word. But, on January 25, 1993, when President Bill Clinton appointed his wife to lead a health care task force, the broadcast networks praised the decision, and not a single one even mentioned “nepotism.”

As Tuesday's New Day devoted a segment to the Congressional Black Caucus planning on hanging up a painting in a Capitol Building hallway in which a congressional art competition winner depicted police officers as pigs, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota at one point wondered if guest Ben Ferguson was being "politically correct" by arguing that the painting should not be displayed publicly.
After co-host Chris Cuomo set up the segment by recalling that California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter had removed the painting and sent it to Missouri Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver because the panting was from his district, leading CBC members to plan on getting together and hanging it back up, the right-leaning Ferguson argued against handing the painting in a public hallway, although he found it acceptable for the Congressman to display it inside his own personal office if he wished.

The latest conversation from the joyless liberal New York Times movie critics A. O. Scott and Manohla Dargis tacked race and class. The online headline was provocative to the point of offensiveness: “Watching While White: How Movies Tackled Race and Class in 2016.” Dargis, the more radical of the two, proclaimed herself pleased that Hollywood isn’t telling quiet as many lies about American greatness and white superiority, and asserted that "Movie critics, who are largely white and male (see the numbers!), seem stubbornly reluctant to engage with race, at least as it pertains to whiteness."

It's still over a week before Donald Trump's inauguration, but Richard Cohen at the Washington Post already has a plan to get rid of him. The Post writer clearly believes that Trump — right now — fits the definition found in the 25th Amendment of the Constitution of someone who is "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office," and could therefore be summarily removed without the effort involved in impeaching and convicting him.

In a Harper’s Bazaar interview published January 10, Madonna made the stunning claim that she is only one of a “handful” of politically vocal people in the entertainment industry. Say what?!

President-elect Donald Trump started a controversy on January 3 when he alleged in an early-morning tweet that "General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to U.S. car dealers-tax free across border. Make in U.S.A. or pay big border tax!"

Americans know the liberal media are untrustworthy. But there’s something especially repulsive when they don’t even pretend to uphold journalistic integrity.

On Tuesday, Ira Madison III, culture writer for MTV News, launched a multi-post rant on Twitter attacking Senator Jeff Sessions during his attorney general confirmation hearing with a racially-charged Tweet about the Alabama Republican's multi-racial granddaughter: "Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys 'R' Us you stole her from." Madison added in a later post that the child was a "prop," because supposedly, "There is no reason for that child to be in his lap in a hearing other than to send an 'I'm not racist message' (sic)."

On Tuesday, the network morning shows were thrilled by the prospect of Democratic lawmakers testifying against Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions during the confirmation hearing for the Donald Trump cabinet pick. However, none of the broadcasts bothered to recall that those same Democrats once eagerly worked with the Alabama senator on civil rights issues.

It’s no secret that many Americans will not be happy on Inauguration Day 2017.
On Jan. 21, the day after President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office, tens of thousands of women plan to descend on Washington to “send a bold message” that (in the words of Hillary Clinton) “women’s rights are human rights.”

American and Canadian church attendance is waning. But according to one religion professor, the liberal leaning in mainline denominations has only exacerbated the problem.

It’s an opening line that’s compelled generations of teens: “When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and cruising for dudes ...”

All this liberal talk about the press heroically holding presidents accountable is easily undermined by Sunday's edition of The Washington Post Magazine. The Post can't help but declare that they are available for rental (or full ownership) by the Obama White House with a 12-page spread of nostalgic Obama photos....taken by White House staff photographer Pete Souza. The headline was "The Obama Years: during his two terms, the sources of a president's strength were always on display." True. One source of Obama's strength was basically owning The Washington Post.
In the very same issue as the 12-page sticky valentine/photo alum from the Obama Fan Club, the Post Magazine ran a 12-page spread by their Trump-investigating reporter David Fahrenthold.
