As Inauguration Day draws closer, Monday’s New York Times lead story by Yamiche Alcindor all but called the president-elect a racist: “In Trump Tweets, Blacks Perceive A Callous Rival – Some To Skip Inaugural – Democrats Voice Anger After Trump Impugns a Civil Rights Icon.” She also smeared Sen. Jeff Sessions as a racist. Also on the race front, the NYT compiled a huge, amazingly gushing collection of interviews with kids whose lives were transformed simply by being in the presence of The One.

Sunday night, National Geographic Channel played a two hour special on President Obama called “The Price of Hope.” What was the “price” of “hope” exactly? Apparently Obama not getting his way 100% of the time because of those evil Tea Party Republicans in Congress,(or at least that’s how the documentary spins it.) The entire documentary sets up the President as some kind of untainted Savior who struggled to achieve his dreams for a better America because “extremist” Republicans were too partisan to be reasonable.

It has been announced today that Bob Beckel will be returning to The Five on Fox News. Of course, there is an issue that must be addressed almost from the moment that Beckel reappears on his old show. It is the laughably wrong predictions Beckel was making on CNN in the months leading into the November election. It wasn't just that his predictions were wrong but the over the top manner of cocky certitude in which they were delivered. Before we review Beckel's inadvertent comedy act while at CNN, let us read the news of his return to his old slot via Mediaite:

60 Minutes co-anchor Steve Kroft on Sunday conducted a nostalgic, gushing interview with Barack Obama, reminiscing that this was the 12th such time he interviewed the President. The journalist closed the segment by praising the wit and brilliance of the Democrat: “President Obama, in all the times we were with him, seemed to savor the challenge of an interview. For him, it was an intellectual workout, something on par with a pickup basketball game, complete with a little trash talk.”

On Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC used the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to lecture Trump on his need to improve his “long and fractured” relationship with the black community. It began when Democratic Congressman John Lewis called Trump’s election win “illegitimate” last week and said he would not be attending the inauguration. When Trump fired back on Twitter, the media blew a fuse at Trump for daring to criticize the “civil rights icon.”

We're not in Sunnydale anymore, Buffy. Joss Whedon, big shot director turned big-time deranged progressive hack, probably speaks for his Hollywood peers when pounding his highchair over the election. He just does it more creatively and crudely than most.

Donald Trump hasn’t even been sworn-in yet but the liberal media has obsessed almost over every Trump tweet and controversy. Conversely, Barack Obama’s administration has been full of scandals and gaffes but liberal reporters have insisted that his record is clean as a whistle. Former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw, after Obama’s January 10 farewell speech gushed: “He’s been scandal free, frankly, in the White House. We haven’t had that what for a while.” Time magazine’s Joe Klein, back in December declared there has been “absolutely no hint of scandal” during his eight years.

These liberal reporters have the audacity to bless this administration as scandal free, because many of Obama’s controversies were either ignored or barely reported by the establishment media. The following is a look through the MRC’s archives at some of the worst scandals and gaffes made during the Obama administration and how they were underreported at the time.
