It’s always fascinating to see media outlets give completely opposite takes on the exact same issue, depending on who’s in the Oval Office. The New York Times did just that today in another display of hypocrisy, typical of the left-wing paper. Like the networks, The Times is blaming the looming government shutdown on President Trump, but in 2013 when President Obama was in office and facing a government shutdown, the paper laid blame solely on Republicans instead of the sitting president.

ABC and NBC on Thursday conveniently ignored the news that Barack Obama will be giving a $400,000 speech to Wall Street investors, the same people he decried as “fat cat bankers” in 2009. Only CBS This Morning covered the New York Times revelation — and only in an 18 second brief that avoided hypocrisy concerns.

In a series of contentious interviews on Thursday’s network morning shows, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was forced to debate with anchors about whether President Trump’s tax plan was just “tax cuts for the rich” and even asked to swear an oath that the reform proposal would be revenue neutral.

The New York Times has an unhealthy obsession with firearms. Recently the paper came in for mockery for a signed editorial that actually attacked the National Rifle Association for featuring guns in its gun museum. On Wednesday it trustingly latched on to a dubious study showing a correlation between gun ownership and road rage killings. Christopher Mele penned “Firearms and Drivers, A Lethal Combination – Rapid Rise in Road Rage Since 2014.”

The same network that made a lewd sex joke about conservatives in 2009 is now outraged over a innocuous comment made about Ivanka Trump on Fox News Tuesday, that many on the left accused of being sexual. Wednesday night, CNN host Don Lemon hosted a whole panel on the “sexist” and “misogynistic” comment made by FNC’s Jesse Waters on the day before’s The Five, about Ivanka Trump’s voice.

Basic economics evidence indicates when taxes are cut, individuals and businesses flourish. But liberals refuse to accept that. MSNBC economic analyst for Morning Joe Steve Rattner claimed on April 27, that President Donald Trump’s proposed tax outline would not create three percent economic growth because Reagan-era supply side economics has been “pretty thoroughly discredited.”

It was a “moment made for Bill Nye,” so The Washington Post said. The Post was referring to the April 22, March for Science, but they could just has easily been making a broader point about Nye’s recent resurgence and the media reaction. It doesn’t seem to matter that his new show is heavy on entertainment, light on science and filled with liberal propaganda.

In hostile interviews with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Thursday, both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America parroted the same liberal smear about Donald Trump’s tax returns to bash the President’s tax reform plan. Hosts on the respective morning shows did the Democrats’ bidding as they again demanded Trump release his returns.

In a report which comes off as something it felt obligated to address but with as little meaningful information as possible, a story at CNN.com tells readers that "Murder Is Out of Control" in Baltimore — to the point where the city is begging the FBI for additional help. The story is so utterly devoid of background that those who haven't followed the city's woes closely could read it and believe that the problem just came along this year.

It’s April, but to liberals it’s March. They’ve had the March for Science. Now we get the March for Climate, which is virtually identical to its predecessor. The alt-left, which apparently has a problem with word meanings, believes science is dogma, not provable fact. To question their beliefs lands you in the internet version of the inquisition. So first, let’s discuss the Scientific Method. (Insert your own important theme music here.) The idea behind it is that scientists/researchers come up with their results, show you the work and then you get to point out problems. But hey, don’t take my word for, let’s try a sciency site.

CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley is plainly the most anti-Trump of the Big Three anchormen, having gone out of his way since the Inauguration to slam Trump's “falsehoods,” even asking if the President “is having difficulty with rationality.” For taking on the President in such a direct way, Pelley has become something of a rock star among his fellow journalists.

Hulu’s new show Harlots has been hard to stomach from the start. Both for its sexual depravity and raw, gritty depiction of the underbelly of the world of prostitution in 1700’s London. This is not a “pretty” version of the life of harlots, if there ever could be one.

On Monday, the radical Iranian Revolutionary Guard harassed a U.S. Navy vessel for the seventh time this year. “Back overseas, an Iranian navy vessel engaged in a potentially disastrous game of chicken with a U.S. destroyer earlier this week,” announced Fox News’ Bret Baier on Wednesday’s Special Report. “It is the latest provocation that many U.S. officials worry could turn into something deadly.” Despite the uptick in Iranian aggression towards the U.S., the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored it.

On Wednesday night’s episode of Shots Fired on FOX, “Hour 6: The Fire this Time,” the town of Gate Station, North Carolina became the site of violent, racially motivated riots, to the delight of Pastor Janae. As racial tensions in the town escalate, Pastor Janae follows through on her desire for another Ferguson. She urges a crowd to action by calling for a “fire to burn down police brutality,” “racism,” and “injustice.” Although she uses the word “riot,” she claims that this will be a riot of peace, not violence.
