The liberal media enthusiastically report the “War on Women” when it comes to issues like funding Planned Parenthood. But their terminology falls flat when they neglect stories like the genital mutilation of little girls. On Thursday, the Department of Justice publicized charges against Michigan Doctor Jumana Nagarwala for performing female genital mutilation (FGM) on girls between 6 and 8-years-old. The case was particularly noteworthy because it is “believed to be the first case brought under” U.S. federal law that forbids FGM. But that wasn’t enough to compel the three broadcast networks to cover the ghoulish story.

Based in a city that’s the murder capital of the country with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, it was only a matter of time before NBC’s new spin-off show Chicago Justice dealt with the issue of guns. But the surprise was how they handled it. Star Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) is the only adult who defends gun rights in a story that sheds a light on what conservative students face on liberal campuses.

One of the hotter articles on the Washington Post website on Sunday raised serious questions about a Post legend: Bob Woodward. A new book from journalist Barbara Feinman Todd chronicles her career in aiding three Post "icons" as well as Hillary Rodham Clinton. She says Woodward ruined her book deal with Hillary by breaking a promise to her.

Univision's need to inject the specter of Donald Trump into every immigration story is getting out of hand, as we see from a recent report from a small town in Oaxaca, Mexico, that has closed its doors to Central American immigrants. But did Trump really have anything to do with this, or was something else at play?

In early March, Nick Kristof at the New York Times solicited a felony in a tweet by virtually begging someone at the Internal Revenue Service to leak Donald Trump's tax returns. On Monday, Chris Matthews was more interested in settling the supposedly questionable matter of whether Trump's prior returns are under audit, but he went down the same path. During his Hardball broadcast, he effectively wished the IRS would leak the answer, and appeared to be supporting such lawbreaking when he said, "That would be a good leak."

MSNBC’s Katy Tur is notably not a fan of President Trump and during Monday’s MTP Daily, where she was filling-in for Chuck Todd, she took numerous swipes at the commander-in-chief. “There are so many questions about what exactly Donald Trump’s foreign policy is. What does the Trump doctrine look like? … There's a lot of confusion about it,” she told Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, “And the flip-flops that we're seeing, are they rooted in pragmatism or are they rooted in ignorance?”

On Monday's The View on ABC, co-host Whoopi Goldberg made a point of chastising President Donald Trump -- whom she always refers to as "the new guy" or "you know who" -- because he recently forgot to put his hand over his heart until wife Melania reminded him as the national anthem was being sung. As she suggested that "any adult" who hears the anthem should reflexively remember the proper etiquette, she seemed oblivious to the fact that, in 2007, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama made the same mistake as he infamously forgot to hold his hand over his heart at an event while the anthem was being sung.

With the polls in Georgia’s special election closing in roughly 24-hours, CBS Evening News spent a segment of Monday night’s program seemingly hyping up the young Democrat running, Jon Ossoff. “30-year old John Ossoff has gone from unknown documentarian to Democratic-cause-celeb in the space of two months,” praised Correspondent Nancy Cordes. This, while poking fun at Republicans who they claim were struggling to hold the seat.

The Democrats, and their mainstream media allies, are so desperate for just one electoral win to prove that President Donald Trump is on a downslide that they have even hailed no change in special elections since the November general election as some sort of moral victory. Below the surface, however, they know they need a victory in a special election. It wasn't delivered to them last week in Kansas in the special congressional election to fill the seat of Mike Pompeo who was appointed to head the CIA so now their hopes have been placed on the April 18 special election in the Georgia Sixth Congressional District to fill the seat vacated by Tom Price who was appointed  Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The journalists on Monday’s Good Morning America excitedly predicted that a special election in April of 2017, 18 months before the midterm elections, could mean a “real chance Democrats take back Congress in 2018.”  Discussing Democrat John Osoff’s chances in Tuesday’s Georgia House race, Matt Dowd enthused: “Can he win it without a runoff? If a Democrat wins that district in Georgia, there's real chance Democrats could take back Congress in 2018.”

On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Monday, anchor Andrea Mitchell and USA Today’s Susan Page were positively giddy about the prospect of Senator Elizabeth Warren running for president in 2020. Promoting an interview she just conducted with the Democrat, Page excitedly recalled: “I asked if she was going to promise Massachusetts voters that she would serve all six years of her second Senate term. And she said, ‘Well, that's certainly the plan.’ That is not exactly a denial of interest in the 2020 presidential race.”

On Sunday afternoon, MSNBC Live gave a blatantly sympathetic forum to Animal Planet host Jeff Corwin to engage in hyperbolic bashing of the Trump administration's environmental policies. The liberal wildlife biologist recalled that his colleagues are 'terrified" before accusing Trump of "waging a war on wildlife," "robbing the bank," "decapitating and castrating" the EPA, engaging in "dark age denial of climate change" before giving the administration a grade of "F" for "frightening." He then derided EPA head Scott Pruitt as a "climate change denier," and likened him to a "fox in the hen house." Host Alex Witt asked no contrarian questions, and gave endorsement to his activism as she concluded the segment: "I know you've reached out many times to the Trump administration trying to get word and speak with them. I hope that they hear you and give you a hearing, if you will, and let your thoughts be heard. That would be great there."

An April 10 Rolling Stone article featured an interview with Dr. Willie Parker, an abortionist who identifies as a Christian. Parker’s recently released book is titled “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice” and was ghostwritten by Lisa Miller according to NYMag.com.

The liberal ladies at the View couldn’t contain their anger after Vice President Mike Pence made an unannounced visit to the South Korean border late Sunday night, to issue a stern warning to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, after weeks of the country conducting missile tests. Hosts Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg complained the loudest, with Hostin and Whoopi actually arguing that North Korea would respond to “diplomacy.”

During a live CNN report, a young boy photobombed correspondent Jim Acosta and mouthed something at the camera, twice. There's no volume, so it's difficult to make out exactly what he's trying to say. Could it be "f----you"? Or maybe "fake news"?
