Seven years of The Good Wife promoting the agenda of Hillary Clinton weren’t enough, apparently, for the creators of its spin-off The Good Fight. After the defeat of Clinton in November 2016, the creators were so caught off guard they had to overhaul the show because “things seem to be more politically freighted now.”

The premiere episode of HBO’s Crashing titled “Artie Lange” provides a twist – the leading character Pete (Pete Holmes), a wannabe stand-up comedian, is a Christian and works his faith into ordinary conversations. How refreshing.

The premiere of the second season of Showtime’s Billions, which aired February 19, illumines the left’s belief that any sort of success must be associated with moral indecency. The show revolves around the power politics between billionaire hedge-fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes (Paul Giammati).

Showtime’s Homeland is really working on trying to get back on the good side of liberals this season, even after empathizing with terrorist sympathizers and demeaning Israeli settlers. But if they want a medal for that, they’ll have to wait a lot longer than six seasons. Until then, we have to deal with their next appeasement to the liberal crowds: an Alex Jones parody.

Without question, Donald Trump has been portrayed on virtually every media outlet for the past two years, mostly in bad taste. The trend continues on FOX’s The Simpsons.

On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, during a discussion of recent leaks from the intelligence community that have been damaging to the Donald Trump administration, liberal host Maher not only suggested that American intelligence agencies are trying to protect the U.S. from a "coup" by President Trump, but he even theorized that such government agencies were behind President John F. Kennedy's assassination because he was having sex with communist spies.

On the plus side, Rachel Maddow isn't teaching history to impressionable youth in high school or college. But it's hardly preferable that she spouts her dubious versions of it from a cable platform at MSNBC. In the wake of President Trump's freewheeling press conference in which he excoriated the media for its persistent bias, Maddow harkened back to a simpler time she considers so much better -- the media's allegedly aggressive coverage of the Kennedy administration.

Better Call Saul because actor Shia LaBeouf is probably going to need a lawyer to bail him out of jail again or, more likely, a mental health facility in the Duke City. As proof, take a look at LaBeouf's total mental meltdown in the video below at the site of his new 24/7 "He Will Not Divide Us" livestream camera which relocated on February 18 from Astoria, NY where it was removed by the hosting museum to the new location in Albuquerque, NM.

CNN went completely off the rails during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources,” as host/“ridiculous figure” Brian Stelter and his guests labeled President Donald Trump an authoritarian dictator with reckless abandon. After opening the program by calling Trump’s comments about the media “poison,” Stelter turned the floor over to CNN reporter Carl Bernstein who declared, “There's a history of what ‘enemy of the people,’ that phrase means as used by dictators and authoritarians including Stalin, including Hitler.” And he warned that Trump’s words are “masses in the brain that ought to concern” everyone.

On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, during the show's opening "Fareed's Take" commentary, host Zakaria portrayed President Donald Trump as getting very little accomplished apart from "hot air," and mocked those who voted for him by cracking, "How's that working out for you?" Referring to voters who supported Trump in the presidential election in spite of his flaws, Zakaria opened his commentary with an obvious slap at them: "Let's say you are a Trump voter -- the kind you often hear about: an honest, hard-working American who put up with Donald Trump's unusual behavior because you wanted a President who would stop playing Washington's political games, bring a businessman's obsession with action and results, and focus on the economy. How's that working out for you?"

Friday morning, Garance Burke at the Associated Press's "Investigative" unit broke what the wire service must have believed was an earth-shaking story that "The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants." 30 hours later, you couldn't find that story, or its "Trump administration denies" follow-up, at any of its "Big Story" site's key pages.

The liberal media took Senator John McCain’s warning of a dictator Donald Trump during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC and ran with it as the biggest story of the day, seeming to use it as a vindication of their smears since day one. “Is that over the top? Or is there a concern,” ABC’s Jon Karl inquired to Senator Rand Paul on This Week. While on CBS’s Face the Nation, moderator John Dickerson worried that Trump supporters would take it upon themselves and violently “act” against the “enemy” press.

During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC finally became worried about “skyrocketing” illegal immigration and the strain on resources. But it was not illegal immigration into the United States they were fretting about, but that into Canada. “Illegally crossing the border, fueled by fears after recent immigration raids and uncertainty over President Trump's executive order,” announced co-anchor Dan Harris during the opening tease, “Can Canada handle this new influx?”

On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, after NewsMax's J.D. Hayworth appeared on a panel where he was outnumbered by liberals 3:1, host Joy Reid repeatedly attempted to race-bait the former Republican congressman with stories that ranged from false to misleading, and ended up kicking him off the show when she was dissatisfied with how he answered her questions. Reid: "I think we're done with this segment because you literally answered a non sequitur that's incredibly offensive. I'm going to let Rosie Perez talk about the -- thank you for being here. No, you know what, what an odd exchange."
