Anti-Trump protesters are still going strong, summoning their creativity to fan the flames of resistance. One recent idea: make Trump an “internet refugee” on Feb. 20.

Meg Kinnard at the Associated Press betrayed quite a bit of unhappiness Wednesday evening and Thursday morning in her coverage of workers' decisive rejection of a union organizing effort at Boeing Corp.'s 787-10 production plant in North Charleston, South Carolina. In two very similar reports found at the wire service's Big Story site, Kinnard solely blamed "Southern reluctance toward unionization" for the rejection. Though that was clearly a factor, it is hardly the only reason for the overwhelming 74 percent to 26 percent rejection. Kinnard "somehow" forgot to report that this is the very same plant whose opening former President Barack Obama's National Labor Relations Board deliberately delayed in 2011.

On Thursday, NBC’s Today fretted over Congress reversing a discriminatory gun regulation put in place under the Obama administration that broadly banned anyone receiving mental disability Social Security benefits from buying a firearm. Despite the overturn legislation receiving bipartisan support, even from the American Civil Liberties Union, the morning show hyped “controversy” over the “heartless” move.

USA Today on Thursday gave liberal actor/activist George Takei a platform to compare Donald Trump’s immigration policies to that of interning the Japanese during World War II. Takei slammed, “Our president has trumpeted an ‘America First’ policy, vowing to prioritize the well-being of the United States. But ‘America’ doesn’t seem to include the brown-skinned, foreign-sounding or non-Christian people affected by his travel ban, his Mexico border wall or his immigration raids.”

On CNN's New Day Thursday, host Chris Cuomo attacked Republican Ohio Representative Jim Jordan over his party's handling of leaked allegations of communications between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russian officials, which led to Flynn's resignation on Monday.

Thursday on Good Morning America, ABC journalists bitterly complained about Wednesday’s press conference with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, where President Trump only called on Israeli outlets and conservative outlets. Despite getting hard-hitting and relevant questions, ABC’s Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega whined that these weren’t “mainstream” outlets and that they didn’t ask “tough questions.” Analyst Matthew Dowd went even further with the hysteria, calling Trump’s behavior a “full frontal assault on the First Amendment.”

We would’ve thought we had heard the last of Dear White People, a movie which followed black college students and their bouts with racism that eventually ended in a college riot, however, thanks to Netflix, they will be video streaming an upcoming series based on the movie. One would think Netflix would be praised and applauded for streaming such a racially conscious series, but not so; Ever since Netflix dropped the trailer, they’ve received a lot of backlash because of it.

The new CBS legal drama Doubt premiered on Wednesday night, and while it stars Katherine Heigl, Laverne Cox is getting all the attention for being the first transgender to be cast as a series regular on a network TV show - i.e. liberals are forcing the radical LGBQT agenda on American TV viewers again.

Another week, another bogus attempt by the Hollywood lefties to bash Americans. This time, NBC’s Blindspot makes a military contractor out to be the bad guy, trying to force the U.S. into a war for profit.

Hulu’s original series The Path is halfway through its second season, but fortunately for us, they still managed to squeeze in a little questionable behavior for us to cover. This time, the show took time to briefly discuss the hardly-discussed topic of systemic racism in prison. They’re so considerate.

I've always considered CW’s Arrow the more conservative show of the DC universe (which means almost nothing) since it follows a physically tough man using his hard-earned abilities to defend himself and the city where he lives. That being said, if Supergirl couldn’t even handle the subject of gun control, what makes them think that a show where literally every character uses a weapon would be a better platform?

CNN took the time during Wednesday’s edition of The Lead to take jabs at President Donald Trump for not being able to get much done during his first three and a half weeks besides create controversy. When asked by host Jake Tapper to walk him through the events of Trump’s first month in office, reporter Tom Foreman joked that “it's more like staggering than walking cause it's quite an experience.” He poked fun at the fledgling administration’s trip ups and hammered it with the accomplishments of past administrations.

CBS made their position on protests against President Donald Trump pretty clear during Wednesday’s Evening News. “President Trump has been an inspiration to many, including many of his opponents, motivating them to speak out,” mocked anchor Scott Pelley to start off the segment. Reporter Dean Reynolds touted the widespread efforts of ‘progressives’ to organize and rally against the Republican president. Something they actively shunned during the rise of the Tea Party eight long years ago.

Excuse me, Newsweek, but who was ultimately responsible for establishing the Manzanar internment camp along with the other such camps which interned Japanese residents in the USA along with Japanese-American citizens during World War II? If you read this February 15 article by Newsweek senior writer Alexander Nazaryan you would think President Donald Trump who was born a year after that war ended was somehow responsible rather than the real culprit, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In fact Nazaryan mentions Trump 26 times in the story while FDR appears only 3 times.

On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s Hardball guests Tim Weiner and Malcom Nance equated the speculated ties between the Trump administration/campaign and Russia to “the most politically charged counterintelligence investigation since the Soviets stole the secret of the atomic bomb” or the Queen of England compromising Abraham Lincoln.
