On Monday, all three network morning shows eagerly promoted the liberal group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filing a lawsuit against President Trump and accusing him of “violating the Constitution.” At the top of NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer proclaimed: “Defendant-in-chief. The new president being formally sued this morning over his hotel and television interests...”

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Monday excoriated attempts by the liberal media to destroy Donald Trump’s new administration. He also praised the President’s efforts to combat journalists, asserting, “What Donald Trump is saying is, ‘If you hit me unfairly I'm going to knock your teeth out.’ And that is what he has been doing.”

On Saturday's New Day on CNN, during a segment with two organizers from the left-wing Women's March on Washington, D.C., CNN host Alisyn Camerota brought up the issue of pro-life women's groups being unwelcome even though the liberal activist group tries to market itself as if it represents all women.

But her guests misleadingly tried to deny that pro-life groups are not welcome as they claimed that everyone is generally invited to show up and march, ignoring the fact that the group recently kicked a pro-life women's group off the "Partners" list on its website.

Business people or companies who chose to endorse, donate or praise Donald Trump have been under attack from the left in recent months. Yet, the network news have failed to inform their viewers about it. The left took aim at L.L.Bean, Yuengling, New Balance and MyPillow for various forms of support  for President-Elect Donald Trump or for his proposed policies. Gay bars and other customers launched “mass boycotts” of Yuengling, and a national boycott movement emerged to punish other companies too.

Barack Obama no longer resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and that means it’s a dark, dreary day in the parallel universe of left-wing sports figures and their admiring media. San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich renewed the attacks on Trump he began after the election in November. Associated Press sports-writer Tom Withers reported Popovich “would bench President Donald Trump.”  He also ripped the president, whom he previously derided as “misogynistic and xenophobic and racist.”

While Sundance founder Robert Redford insisted that his festival doesn’t “play advocacy,” the lineup of 2017 films is certainly political.

“The idea of us being involved in politics is just not so,” Redford told The Hollywood Reporter, noting that the festival focuses on the stories told by artists. “We stay away from that.”

Appearing as a guest on a special Saturday edition of The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN, Women's March attendee Padma Lakshmi, host of the Bravo program Top Chef, complained about Republican plans to defund Planned Parenthood, dubiously claiming that "little of what Planned Parenthood does is abortion," and fretting that President Donald Trump "has given voice to a lot of racism and misogyny and just given a boldness to a certain kind of hatred and violence."


A bit later, after being pressed by host Tapper about pro-life groups being excluded from the march, she conceded that doing so was a mistake for outreach purposes, but then in the next breath hyperbolically asserted that one has to be "insane" or "crazy" to not be a "feminist."

The third episode of HBO’s new series, The Young Pope, begins with an expletive-laden tirade by Pope Pius XIII (Jude Law) declaring, “I am the Lord omnipotent.” The episode, which aired on January 22, shows the Pope reflecting with his confessional priest on the conclave that elected him.

At 6:55 a.m. on Sunday, Angie Goff of NBC4 in Washington, whose Twitter handle is @OhMyGOFF, tweeted, "JUST IN: The White House releases statement ..." on Saturday's "Women's Marches" in Washington and elsewhere. Goff attached the alleged "White House" statement. 2-1/2 hours later, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted that "The White House has not issued a statement." Good grief.

“The most important development of the last half-century in American politics,” believes New York magazine’s Chait, is “the Republican Party’s embrace of movement conservative ideology.” In a Thursday post, Chait cited six books, none of which was written by a conservative, that “help elucidate” this phenomenon. Among Chait’s choices: E.J. Dionne’s Why the Right Went Wrong; Richard Hofstadter’s Social Darwinism in American Thought (“scathingly dispatches a powerful right-wing idea that was destined to endure: the notion that the free market is a perfectly just mechanism for rewarding value and punishing failure”); and Paul Krugman’s Peddling Prosperity (“a powerful critique of supply-side economics…which Krugman aptly dispatches as simply crankery lacking any grounding in serious economic theory”).

CNN’s resident anti-Donald Trump alarmist Brian Stelter took to his show, “Reliable Sources,” Sunday and issued his arguably most dire/bonkers warning about the president yet. “Do citizens in dictatorships recognize what's happening right here right now,” he sneered, “Are they looking at the first two days of the Trump administration and saying, ‘Oh, that's what my leader does?’” Stelter’s cries of despot were triggered by Trump doing what all politicians do, exaggerate their own performance.

Things got heated on Sunday’s Meet the Press after the president’s council, Kellyanne Conway, confronted NBC’s Chuck Todd on his, and media’s, bias against Donald Trump. Todd was up in arms because Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed that Trump’s inauguration crowd was the largest ever. “That now calls into question everything the press secretary will say from here on out,” Todd insisted. But Conway countered with the media’s own history of reporting false information on the Trump administration.

Here's an episode which indicates that many reporters in the establishment press expect the worst from Donald Trump, and can't wait to put it out there when they think they have it. On Friday, when Time Magazine political reporter Zeke Miller didn't immediately see the bust of Martin Luther King in the White House's Oval Office where he expected to see it, his knee-jerk assumption was that it was no longer there. So he tweeted that it was gone, with no indication that he first attempted to confirm with anyone in a position to know that it had been removed. Sensing a golden opportunity, others in the press accepted Miller's non-observation and freely retweeted it.

The Sunday following the anti-President Donald Trump Women’s March on Washington, network news rushed to spin the event as an inclusive event about putting the president on notice. “[Trump will] be confronting images, however, like this,” hyped Paula Farris on Good Morning America, “Hundreds of thousands of women, and men, hitting the streets.” There was no talk of the obscene parts of Ashley Judd’s hate filled tirade nor Madonna’s fantasy of “blowing up the White House,” only a fleeting mention on NBC.

If Ashley Judd’s R-rated rant comparing President Donald Trump’s team to the Nazis wasn’t insane enough, loony Madonna admitted to wanting to kill the newly inaugurated president of United States. “Yes, I am angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she proclaimed to the hundreds of thousands of march attendees in Washington, DC on Saturday. But yet, she started her address declaring, “Welcome to the revolution of love!”
