Univision has gone into overdrive to demonize Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke because of his avowed commitment to federal-local cooperation in immigration law enforcement.

The liberal media have been circling and acting as though they smell blood in the water since The Washington Post reported that close Trump adviser, Jared Kushner wanted to set up a back channel with the Russians so Trump could discuss Syria. This, on top of reports that investigators would like to simply talk with Kushner and ask him some questions. The prowling continued on CNN’s Inside Politics on Sunday, where they painted Kushner as “treacherous” before offhandedly noting that he was not a target roughly 50 minutes later.

It is no secret that Vanity Fair is not exactly fond of President Donald Trump. However, what is surprising is how they have taken their dislike for Trump to such an extreme that their articles are coming off as if they are just angrily heckling him from the sidelines. An example of this is their May 26 article about the attitude of the Russian people towards Trump.

Fox's John Stossel penned a column on the "Green Baloney" at The New York Times featuring a story headlined  "In Reversal, E.P.A. Eases Path for a Mine Near Alaska's Bristol Bay." He wrote "While this was just another of their stories about how Donald Trump will poison America, it caught my eye because of the big photo and because I once reported on that mine. Attempted mine, I should say. No holes have been dug." Obama's EPA denied it without any scientific investigation.

The Associated Press, PolitiFact, CNN, Snopes and all of the other "fact-checkers" should be busy this weekend and well into next week vetting the howlers contained in Rebecca Traister's New York Magazine Friday afternoon interview of a politician who has been in the public eye for decades. But it's a virtual lock that they won't bother, because the person Traister interviewed was Hillary Clinton.

Berlin-beat reporter Alison Smale reported in Friday’s New York Times her version of the media’s latest favorite anti-Trump take: The cold reception of President Trump compared to the embrace of the cool Barack Obama, in “Europeans’ Welcomes for Trump and Obama Are a Study in Contrasts.” While Trump was quoted as being a “danger for the world,” “rock-star” Obama was happily sprinkling “political stardust” over the prospects of left-wing European politicians.

More euphemistic, politically correct terminology about illegal immigrants from the New York Times, as Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Ron Nixon reported in Friday’s paper. The soft-pedaling even made the headline: “Proposed Budget Takes Broad Aim at Undocumented Immigrants -- Money for Jails, Not for Benefits.” The phrase “undocumented immigrants” (which the Times itself has admitted is a euphemism) was used six times in the story, while the accurate phrase “illegal immigrants” was avoided completely. Illegal immigration is an issue where the paper’s bias comes through quite clearly, combined with a deep aversion to any slowdown in federal spending  ofwhat it calls the “social safety net.”

The headline at Mediaite was this: "Hillary Clinton Says Donald Trump Presidency Will ‘End in Disgrace With His Impeachment." The story, in part, says this: “Today, Hillary Clinton returned to her Alma Mater, Wellesley College, to give the commencement address. As Clinton fans and detractors alike know, one of her first big moments in the national spotlight was when she gave the address there during her own graduation at a time when students didn’t give commencement speeches. She used that speech almost five decades ago to target a senator, launching her into the political spotlight."

‘Working at the Morning Joe weekday program apparently has its advantages. One of those was demonstrated on Friday, May 26, when co-host Joe Scarborough aired a fake 30-second television advertisement he had told “the kids in the back that work for us” -- and were “out in the street playing stickball” at the time -- to “draw up an ad that will look like what we’re going to see next year.”

The result was “predictable campaign fare, focusing on the Republican health-care bill” and claiming that the GOP measure would slash everything from Medicaid to payments for pre-existing conditions while generating “huge tax cuts for the rich.”

Nowhere is the dearth of opposing opinion more apparent than on the opinion editorial pages of major newspapers.  Syndicated columnists are given space, but local columnists with a right leaning political perspective are few and far between.  Such was my situation as a freelance columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

According to author, critic, and former Fox News Watch panelist Neal Gabler, there’s not much of a mystery about who killed “the idea of media objectivity.” The perp, Gabler alleges, was the late Roger Ailes. “Before Fox News, most people actually trusted the media,” wrote Gabler in a screed that ran Friday on Salon and was originally published at BillMoyers.com.

Jimmy Fallon has a funny way of approaching his late night gig. The former Saturday Night Live star thinks it’s all about making people laugh at the end of the day. It’s not divisive, or corrosive. The “Fallon” method treats guests like … guests. Politics are fair game, but it’s not what matters most.

Soopermexican at The Right Scoop caught an amazing admission in the midnight hour on Friday morning, as CNN was beginning to mourn another Democratic loss in a special election for the House of Representatives. Media reporter Dylan Byers lamented that voters in Montana weren't even really paying attention to their incessant coverage of GOP candidate Greg Gianforte's violent treatment of Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the leftist British newspaper The Guardian, on the night before the election.

Al Franken has a new book out humbly titled Al Franken, Giant of the Senate. On that same level of attempted humor, his author’s biography states he received “his doctorate in right-wing megalomania studies from Trump University.” Stay classy, Sen. Franken.

Sycophantic press profiles of Franken express admiration for the “former comedian” as if the satire stopped. Just two months ago, The Washington Post gushed that in the Age of Trump, “the former comedian and satirist may be having a breakout moment as a political star."

The Trump administration has given late night TV new life. But for all their digs at the president, Stephen Colbert and his ilk aren’t doing much better than POTUS at bringing the country together.
