President Donald Trump sat down with CBS’s John Dickerson for an interview about the first 100 days of his presidency, which aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation. In between talking about the serious topics, the President took shots at the media, including his host. “You know, it is very funny when the fake media goes out, which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes I must say is you,” he told Dickerson. “I love your show. I call it ‘Deface the Nation,’ but, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.

On Saturday's AM Joy, viewers could witness a near caricature of a group of liberals talking politics in the former of host Joy Reid, former MSNBC political analyst Jimmy Williams, Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah, and Karine Jean-Pierre of MoveOn.org, as the group pined for "cradle to the grave" guaranteed health care as a "civil right" and fretted "Jim Crow for health care."

TBS’s resident radical leftist Samantha Bee made an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday to speak with her friend/host Jake Tapper about her “alternative” White House Correspondents Dinner. During their discussion, Tapper dredged up a New York Times opinion piece from September 2016 warning Hillary Clinton of her “Samantha Bee problem.” The column notes that not only Bee is the problem but all stuck up liberals as well. Bee laughed and denied such a problem existed.

Most readers of NewsBusters and consumers of cable news are used to liberal media meltdowns since November 8. However, that’s not to say they’re any less enjoyable. Saturday night featured another temper tantrum by CNN with anchors and guests labeling Trump’s 100 Days rally in Pennsylvania a “deeply disturbing” and “stunning” speech by a “moral midget.”

In the minutes leading up to their live coverage of the White House Correspondents Dinner, CNN turned to media reporter Brian Stelter, who caused unintentional laughter when he claimed that the journalists inside the dinner had no political interests in their Trump coverage. They're "just trying to do their best work." He slammed the president's speech Saturday night as "insidious" and "poisonous," even as he admitted it was nothing new. He's perpetually outraged.

During a rally packed with devoted supporters at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, President Donald Trump spent extensive portions of his first 100 days speech torching the news media for their liberal tilt, using facts like the blockbuster April 19 Media Research Center study.

Saturday's CBS Weekend News filed a report in which correspondent Paula Reid fretted that some of the illegal immigrants rounded up for deportation had only been convicted of drunk driving, even though such activity is dangerous criminal behavior that claims the lives of thousands of Americans each year. And, even though the report ran a soundbite of President Donald Trump vowing to deport "drug dealers" and "criminal aliens," Reid seemed to think that deporting nonviolent offenders like drunk drivers was somehow contradicting this promise as she complained that arrests were "raising concerns."

Try though she may -- nay, fight though she persistently fights -- Senator Elizabeth Warren has a branding problem.

Granted, she's doing her darndest to change that. The title of her new book, for example -- "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class." Not the more succinct "This is Our Fight" or, tighter still, "This Fight." Operative word here -- fight. As in, "Fighting the Fight That's Ours to Fight: One Feisty, Fiery Senator Punches Away for America's Embattled Middle Class."

Faith Salie, a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning and a comedic panelist on the snarky NPR game show WaitI Wait! Don't Tell Me!, penned a piece for the fiercely feminist website Jezebel . The headline was "Bill O'Reilly Didn't Harass Me, But His Viewers Did."

On Friday's CBS Evening News, and again on Saturday's CBS This Morning, correspondent Mark Strassmann filed a report highlighting a newly formed organization of liberal women in Georgia who are working to "turn the red state blue." He also forwarded their views without challenge as he recalled their complaints that President Donald Trump has been pursuing policies that are "anti-immigrant, anti-women and un-American."

The story is a revealing look inside the liberal media bubble. Over here at Politico is this headline “The Strange Psychological Power of ‘Fox & Friends.’” But it’s the sub-headline that provides the real look inside both the liberal media bubble and the left-wing mind. That would read: “Unrelenting positivity has a powerful warping effect on your thinking. So how is that affecting Viewer No. 1?”

The liberal site Slate was delighted with a new video message about the "war on drugs" produced by Green Point Creative. It’s not the same classic anti-drug message she famously delivered back in the ’90s, though she’s still got her frying pan and some eggs. But now it's about how the brown eggs get smashed by drug laws, not the white eggs. Get it?

On Friday (appearing in Saturday's print edition), the New York Times published its first column by Bret Stephens, the former Wall Street Journal columnist recently hired as a "conservative" voice. Its theme was that the political "hyperbole" about climate change doesn't match the underlying science — even if one trusts the underlying science. That alone was enough to send journalists into unhinged and often profane orbit.

Just as it’s exceedingly tricky to know the dancer from the dance, it’s awfully hard to separate Fox News Channel’s program content from its hypermacho, litigation-generating workplace. That was the word from Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall in a Friday post. In Marshall’s words, FNC on the air and FNC in the office are “almost umbilically tied…If you’ve watched Fox for years and you found that it wasn’t a hotbed of sexual harassment, pervasive racist attitudes and a generalized sixty-something faux-bro ‘alpha’ culture, you’d have to think you had been scammed, that the big screen talent were somehow hypocrites and frauds. It would be like finding out that Chris Hayes was a major libertarian who funded the Cato Institute and Club for Growth or that Joy Reid had secretly been advising Donald Trump throughout the 2016 election cycle.”

President Trump is skipping this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, but that hasn’t stopped the media from nevertheless hyping the event. At that same dinner on April 30, 2011, journalists thought it was hilarious when then-President Obama and comedian Seth Meyers lampooned Trump from the stage, while the billionaire businessman sat in the audience. The media loved it.
