It is getting harder to downplay the recent stock market rally, but The New York Times tried to keep it quiet. Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney blasted the Times’s lack of coverage of what he called the “Trump stock market rally.” Varney pointed out on Feb. 27, that the Business section of the Times from the day before ignored the market’s historic gains since Trump’s election. His media criticism came just hours before a 12th straight record day for the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Monday knocked the New York Times for a smug ad that aired during the Oscars. Bozell appeared on the Fox Business Channel and responded to the Times’s commercial declaring the paper the arbiter of truth: “The New York Times runs this really underhanded, snide attack on the President, during the Academy Awards no less. Talk about speaking to the choir when you're doing something like that.”

Univision never wastes an opportunity to remind us that it has an agenda beyond immigration. The network's coverage of a recent court ruling proves that abortion is also high on Univision's list of pet issues.

It happened at the Golden Globes, New York Fashion Week and, now, the Oscars: America’s largest abortion provider is becoming a “fashion statement.” And, in addition to entertainment news and women’s magazines, the broadcast networks are beginning to notice the trend. Following Sunday evening’s 89th Academy Awards ceremony, NBC anchor Natalie Morales reported on the red carpet “glitz and the glamour” that “was also mixed with politics.”

Emphasizing its newly discovered commitment to aggressive journalism now that Donald Trump is president, the New York Times has hired a fact-checker from PolitiFact to bolster its case for lying Trump. Twice in two days Linda Qiu has slammed President Trump’s alleged falsehoods. On Saturday she went after Trump's speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference: “After Denouncing ‘Fake News,’ a Catalog of Falsehoods.”

Economist and former speechwriter for Richard Nixon, Ben Stein, appeared on CNN Newsroom last Saturday, where he slammed the media for making Trump a “punching bag” and “looking for a scandal” from the president on a daily basis. Stein told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “I don't blame him for being furious at [the media].” Stein noted, “I think he's got a lot of company."

In an exclusive interview with George W. Bush on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer repeatedly urged the former president to criticize current President Trump’s first month in office. Lauer began the exchange by demanding: “You took office in 2001 after an extremely contentious election, controversial end to that, the Supreme Court decided it, the nation was incredibly divided. How would you compare the divisions we faced then to what we’re living through right now?”

The journalists on ABC, CBS and NBC on Sunday couldn’t quite agree how to spin new Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez. Is he “moderate,” “establishment” or really progressive? Despite having what Mother Jones magazine called “stalwart progressive” credentials, Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley described, “Former Labor secretary Tom Perez is the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee... His election is seen as a win for the moderate wing of the party.”

Following his latest combative segment on transgender people by smearing conservatives as 
“nutz” [sic] with intolerant views that will increase suicide rates, CNN’s New Day co-host Chris Cuomo threw a mini-fissy fit on Twitter Monday morning in the name of “tolerance

This post goes straight into the "Just When You Didn't Think They Could Sink Any Lower (But They Always Manage)" file. At Slate.com on Thursday, staff writer Isaac Chotiner took the occasion of Alan Colmes's death only hours earlier to criticize him as a "buffoon and patsy," and as "Fox News’ Original Liberal Weakling."

On Monday's New Day, liberal CNN co-host Chris Cuomo got into a heated debate with conservative CNN political commentator and talk radio host Ben Ferguson over the issue of a high school girl who identifies as a boy who was barred from wrestling with boys and so chose to wrestle girls instead. As the debate shifted to the issue of transgender bathroom policy, Cuomo not only accused conservatives of "scarring" transgenders and causing an increase in suicide by not allowing them to do what they choose to do, but he also mocked those who fear the possibility of girls having "genitals waved in their face" by men intruding into women's restrooms.

The Monday morning following the Oscars on ABC was filled with excited reports on the biggest Hollywood awards show of the year. But over on ABC’s Good Morning America, the news team seemed just as excited about the anti-Trump tone of the night.

When a major social issues brouhaha recently erupted in Texas, it was all too predictable that Big Media would push hard in support of its LGBT activist friends. The big T – for transgender – in this case.

It was the most promising start to a report on the Oscars ceremony that I’ve read: “Our culture is too frazzled and fried and exhausted for this kind of nonsense!” Had Washington Post TV Critic Hank Stuever stopped there, in sort of a mic-drop for taste and commonsense, he’d be a legend. But it turns out he was concerned with the specific nonsense of some award confusion, not the overall nonsense of the entire embarrassing Oscars spectacle.
