What a difference a Person of the Year can make. In 2008, Time journalists hailed their choice, Barack Obama, as an ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Jedi and cheered, “Why History Can’t Wait.” In contrast, 2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump is an “outlandish” “demagogue.” The Obama cover featured the now cliched hope poster illustration. Trump’s image read, “President of the Divided States of America.”

Lately, Hollywood has been in a bit of panic mode. Clearly the election of Donald Trump has thrown them through a loop because they left no room for even the slimmest possibility of Trump winning the presidency. Comedian Tina Fey is no different and let her apparent distress be known to David Letterman in an interview he conducted with her for The Hollywood Reporter. The former late-night host commiserated with the former Saturday Night Live comedian over their newly found realization of American’s “misogyny”--(rich, coming from the host who admitted to sleeping with his interns)--and how they would deal with the disappointing blow.

CNN political commentator Van Jones hosted a special town hall event titled The Messy Truth Tuesday night, to talk about how “both parties kind of suck.” During the forum, he admitted that there was an elitist vein running through the Democratic Party, and that many rust belt voters supported Donald Trump because their harsh economic reality. But the constructive conversation turned dark at the end of the program when radical progressive Michael Moore begged congressional Democrats to obstruct Republicans at every turn.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is under enormous pressure from the Left to crack down on “fake news” on the social-media giant. Zuckerberg is well-advised to run as far as he can from the News Police.
In a recent note on Facebook, Zuckerberg claimed he wanted to err “on the side of letting people share whatever they want whenever possible....We do not want to be arbiters of truth ourselves, but instead rely on our community and trusted third parties.” The hard left, beginning with President Obama, wants to be that “community,” that supposedly disinterested “third party.”

Despite recent revelations that the Pentagon may have been hiding $125 billion in wasteful spending, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all knocked President-Elect Donald Trump Tuesday for tweeting his disapproval of the $4 billion price tag of two new presidential aircraft. “President-Elect Donald Trump's sparking a new controversy over Air Force One after once again, taking to social media to criticize an American business,” whined fill-in Anchor Tamron Hall on NBC Nightly News. But each one of them reported a different price tag for the project.

In this week’s edition of the liberal media normalizing the abhorrent “alt-right” and neo-Nazi movement led by Richard Spencer, CNN dedicated a excessively horrible 36 minutes and 46 seconds between Monday night and Tuesday afternoon to previewing a Spencer speech hours later at Texas A&M University despite correctly emphasizing he has a “hate-filled mission.”

During Monday night's edition of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable television channel, host Trevor Noah slammed Donald Trump for making “outlandish” comments on the Twitter website, but the comedian saved his harshest criticisms for the GOP president-elect's “enablers” who worry that Trump is being “too casual with the highest office in the land.”
“If you're one of those people who thought Trump would magically give up Twitter once he was elected, think again because this weekend he gave us a definitive answer, and this is real,” Noah said at the beginning of the segment.

At the New York Times on Friday, Amanda Hess regaled readers over how the "spontaneous" and "chance" sightings of Hillary Clinton since Election Day have made Mrs. Clinton "a new folk hero." Her virtual hagiography even made it to Page C1 of the paper's Saturday print edition. There's more sap in Hess's writeup than one could likely collect from all of the trees in the wooded areas in which Mrs. Clinton has "unexpectedly" appeared.

After Trump's thank-you rally in Cincinnati, CNN's Dana Bash complained. “There were lots of divisive comments, especially and unfortunately about the press, which I wish he would stop doing." CNN's Brian Stelter said his anti-media remarks make him an "authoritarian." But which is more authoritarian? A president that criticizes the press? Or a press that insists that the president must shut up and never criticize the press?

It is clear that many at Univision are still trying to process what happened last month. This much was evident on the most recent edition of the network's weekly public affairs program, Al Punto, as both host and guest struggled to understand the outcome of the election.

NPR's Morning Edition on Tuesday touted how many "anti-poverty advocates across the political spectrum" are now "worried" after President-Elect Donald Trump picked Dr. Ben Carson to be secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Correspondent Pam Fessler spotlighted how "advocates fear the worst — that it will lead to deep cuts in programs to reduce homelessness, and to subsidize affordable housing." However, Fessler didn't mention that her first "advocate" worked in the Obama administration, and the second donated to his presidential campaign.
