Amidst the media’s obsession with supposedly stopping fake news, MSNBC Live aired a fake news story of their own as the network informed viewers that “Fox News had their Christmas party” at President-elect Donald Trump’s Washington, D.C. hotel. “I mean, think about the hotel in Washington right now. The RNC is having their Christmas party there. Fox News had their Christmas party there. That doesn't feel a little hanky,” host Stephanie Ruhle claimed.

The media’s crusade against “fake news” on the Right is no more than an attempt to “shut down conservative outlets” according to Dan Gainor, MRC’s Vice President for Business and Culture. On December 9, Gainor and Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report host Trish Regan  discussed the left-wing media’s “feeding frenzy” on conservative fake news stories. “It’s more risk to the rest of us, but for people like Hillary Clinton, this isn’t putting lives at risk, it’s putting lies at risk,” said Gainor, “George Orwell’s 1984 wasn’t a how-to book. It was a warning.”

You can’t make this stuff up. On Friday morning’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo badgered Rep. Marsha Blackburn over defending Trump’s conservative pick for the head of the EPA asking her, “Can you be for clean air and water if you do not believe that man has a hand in global warming?

As Donald Trump announced another cabinet pick, all three networks on Friday touted liberal talking points on Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Puzder. But it was Today journalist Peter Alexander who chided the Carl’s Jr. CEO for his company’s racy ads. NBC is the same network that devoted an entire week to promoting the graphic, sex-drenched movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

Singer Taylor Swift’s rapid rise to fame transformed her from “the girl next door” into edgy pop star, and nothing makes that more evident than her latest single. According to The New York Times, Swift collaborated with former One Direction member Zayn Malik to create a song for “Fifty Shades Darker,” the sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey,” a film that revolves around the sexual relationship between a female college graduates and a BDSM-obsessed billionaire.

On Friday, NBC’s Today devoted a full report to stoking fears that Donald Trump’s criticism of individual businesses could ruin people’s investments. MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle appeared on the morning show to warn viewers: “Imagine a tweet, a single tweet losing you money. 140 characters could cost you 140 bucks maybe 1,400, maybe more. That is how powerful the president's voice is, it can move markets.”

Every time Hillary Clinton has made a public appearance since losing the election, the media goes nuts. Even the New York Times opined about her “chance” appearances as a “political salve” for their sore loser wounds. Two of the three networks Friday morning used their morning shows to excitedly report on Clinton’s latest public appearance, where she condemned the media’s latest bogeyman, “fake news.” ABC excitedly reported on Clinton’s return to “the spotlight” with Jon Karl calling her “the most prominent voice in the democratic party.” NBC’s Peter Alexander also covered Clinton’s rebuke in a less effusive report, while CBS This Morning passed.

Media outlets hyped former vice president Al Gore’s recent meeting with President-Elect Donald Trump. Since becoming a full time climate alarmist Gore has earned wealth and the accolades of the liberal news and entertainment media. His slideshow turned him into the “darling of Hollywood” according to the news media.

Our old colleague Mark Finkelstein at Legal Insurrection caught a humdinger today. Mika Brzezinski revealed on the air that Hillary Clinton's campaign called NBC brass and demanded Mika be taken off the air for something "journalistically inappropriate." Let that sink in: the Clinton campaign wanted Mika -- not Joe, not an MSNBC Republican like Michael Steele -- removed from morning TV.

The front of Friday’s New York Times featured Michael Shear's interview with Chuck Jones, the now-famous president of Indiana United Steelworkers Local 1999, who came under withering attack by president-elect Donald Trump on Twitter on Wednesday night, after claiming that “Trump lied his ass off” about how many U.S. jobs Trump’s Carrier move would actually save. The headline: “Trump as Cyberbully in Chief? New Twitter Attack Draws Fire.” But it's hypocritical of the paper to condemn Trump on the front page as a powerful person bullying an innocent private citizen, while letting intimidation of private citizens by Obama go unremarked upon.

Last week Penn wrote a long diatribe in the Daily Beast that not only treated the public to a lengthy rant on President-elect Donald Trump and the “hicks” who voted for him, but it also gave a glimpse on the beginning of his love affair with the recently departed Castro. Titled, “Sean Penn: Hollywood, Havana and Me” one would have thought to have it renamed “Hollywood, Havana and Hypocrite” because of some of the contradictory statements he made. Not only that, he somehow compared Castro to Martin Luther King and the NRA.

We’ve come a long way from the hope of the ‘60s and ‘70s to the hate of the hate of 2016. No, I’m not talking about the media’s favorite Boogeyman -- the altright. I’m talking about the altleft’s BS that conservatives are one big Bund rally.

On November 24, as many of us were enjoying sumptuous Thanksgiving repasts and family time, the Washington Post published Craig Timberg's turkey of a report about how "a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online" to discredit Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump.

Very recently, probably sometime Wednesday, the Post appended an "Editor's Note" to Craig Timberg's original dispatch attempting to distance itself from its own work product. It should satisfy no one.

With each conservative cabinet pick, the media freaks out and does their best to characterize each person as a radical extremist. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was next in line for the media to attack, as the liberal women at The View were quick to bash Trump's “horrible pick” for the Environmental Protection Agency as someone who was going to leave the United States in an apocalyptic wasteland filled with polluted air and dirty water.
